[PHONE RINGING]

[WHOOSH NEARBY]

WOMAN:
|Cris.

Detective Allen.

Partner.

ALLEN:
|He's in there.

Right now, he's in there.

Again.

-Allen, Ramirez. Inside.|-Yes, sir.

And this would be?

Jacob Feely. Our man in black.

The high-tech psycho?

Just dropped in, did he, loo?

He's back in custody, Detective Allen.

That's good enough for me.

You and Detective Ramirez are going to|put Mr. FeeIy in some bar and leg cuffs...

...and take him back across the Narrows.

Yes, sir. This way, Mr. FeeIy.

Sergeant Del Arrazio says Maroni's guys|are gunning for The Russian, lieutenant.

He says it's going down in Tri-Corner,|probably tonight.

If you have a point, detective,|I'm still waiting to hear it.

Just wondering if now's the time|to be acting courier...

...for a vigilante, that's all, sir.

It's called trust, detective.

Something this city's had|in short supply until very recently.

But I don't trust him, sir.

You wiII.

You're like a dog with a bone.|You know that, partner?

-He's a vigilante.|RAMIREZ: He's not.

He's a vigilante, Anna.

He's not.

ALLEN:
So, what do you call him, then?|Crime-fighter?

Hell, I don't know.|I don't even know if he's human, Cris.

All I know is that this city's changing|for the better thanks to him.

You didn't grow up here,|you don't see it.

But I did and I do.

Major Crimes Unit,|Detective Ramirez and Detective Allen.

-Dropping off or picking up?|-Dropping off. Jacob Feely.

You found him? Nice job.

-We just looked and there he was.|COP: You been across since breakout?

-Haven't had the pleasure.|COP: Couple things to keep in mind, then:

The whole island's now asylum grounds.

Keep your doors locked|and the windows up...

...until you're at the administration building.|Do not stop.

Anyone you see on the streets|are inmates, not citizens.

Understood.

COP:
|I'll let them know you're coming.

Welcome back, Jacob.

ALLEN:
|Dispatch, Victor 3-2...

...we are 1 0-24,|en route to State for drop-off.

Victor 3-2, 1 0-4.

I gotta tell you, partner,|this place gives me the creeps.

A whole island abandoned to madness.

This whole city's abandoned to madness.

RAMIREZ:
|You are in a mood tonight.

ALLEN:
Yeah. I'm thinking of|transferring out of the MCU.

What? You can't.

We've been partnered six weeks, Anna,|it's not like we're married.

It's the Major Crimes Unit, Cris.

Gordon picked you|the same as he picked me.

He picked all the detectives in the squad.

You can't turn your back on that.

ALLEN:
|The Major Crimes Unit.

If we were stopping major crimes|like the gang war...

...that's been ripping this city into chunks|for almost a month, maybe I'd reconsider.

But that's not what we do, is it?

No, we run errands for a vigilante.

And that, partner, is just plain wrong.

Whoa!

You can't walk away from this...

...not when things|are finally beginning to change.

Not when the fact that you're an|honest cop is an asset, not a liability.

I don't know if we can trust the Batman.

But I know this:

Because of him, I'm not ashamed|of being a cop anymore.

[CAR APPRO ACHES]

-If you wanna give that up--|-Shh!

No, damn it, listen.

Anna, shut up.

RAMIREZ:
|Crap.

That's The Russian,|we're gonna need backup.

We're gonna need a lot of backup.

I told you and your Ivans|to stay the heII off my turf, Russian.

You have no turf, Maroni,|and you have no power.

Then come and get me,|you son of a b*tch.

[MEN GRO AN]

[YELLING]|Ten-thirty-four! Ten-thirty-four!

Southwest O'Neill and Morrison.

Southwest O'Neill and Morrison.

Be advised, backup ETA three minutes.

[YELLING]|We're gonna be dead in three minutes!

Rocket launcher.

[LAUGHS]

Cris. Out!

ALLEN:
|Move your ass!
