Narc

Synopsis: An undercover narc dies, the investigation stalls, so the Detroit P.D. brings back Nick Tellis, fired 18-months ago when a stray bullet hits a pregnant woman. Tellis teams with Henry Oak, a friend of the dead narc and an aggressive cop constantly under the scrutiny of internal affairs. They follow leads, informants turn up dead, Nick's wife is unhappy he's back on the street, Henry's protective of the dead cop's wife. Nick reads and re-reads the case file, broods, watches Oak's heavy-handed style, sometimes joining in. The brass want to close out the case, Nick and Henry stay on it, and bits of evidence point them to an auto body shop. What actually happened; will Nick ever know?

Por que estas aqui?

No, not te me...

Porque estas aqui?

No, no, no, que estas haciendo.

Dowd!

No!

No!

No!

Mommy, Mommy!

Please, help me.

Please, help me.

Please!

It's okay.

Help!

Mr. Dowd was pronounced dead

on arrival, Detroit Sinai.

Perforated cranial pan,

projectile fragmentation...

frontal lobe.

Now, the woman, Jeanine Mueller,

she subsequently lost the child.

Uterine damage,

hemorrhaging on admittance.

The infant died due to blood loss

suffered by the mother.

Hospital records indicate

acute fetal trauma, gunshot wound.

This material was covered

some months ago.

Why is it being brought up again?

Have you had contact

with Ms. Mueller?

I have spoken to her, yes.

On what occasion did you speak

with Ms. Mueller,

and what prompted the conversation?

I'm not going to answer that.

That's a personal...

Do you think, in retrospect,

acting perhaps less aggressively,

this might have been prevented?

What might have been prevented?

The infant's death.

That's very dangerous, you know that?

Hungry?

Yeah, but not for this...

toe cheese.

Shh!

I'll bite it off.

He's going to wake up.

If the smell didn't wake him up

already, he's out.

My feet smell?

Yeah.

Yeah. Hi.

So.

So, what?

So, how'd it go?

It went.

Yeah?

What can I say?

What did you say?

What do you think?

Ma'am, let me just, uh...

Sorry, your name, again?

Liz Detmer.

Right, right, Ms. Detmer.

My, uh, duty assignment

was solely undercover narcotic work.

Do you have any idea

what that entails?

I have a general idea, yes.

Okay.

Well, then, generally speaking,

Ms. Detmer,

you don't know what the f*ck

you're talking about.

They expect you to come in

with this, "glad to be here" bullshit,

head hung low, hat in hand.

Yeah, that's ridiculous.

Well, they're not going to forget.

It's all what they say.

Then I don't understand why, you know,

you went and talked to them.

'Cause they asked.

Mr. Tellis,

that's not necessary.

If you haven't seen what I've seen,

or done what I've done,

you don't know where I'm coming from.

I am not an officer

of the law, Mr. Tellis,

and, therefore, I have

no formal training.

But I would expect someone that did

would perhaps behave judiciously,

exercising discretion and restraint

in necessary quantities...

Jesus Christ, lady.

Look, we can do this all goddamn day.

You want to assess all this blame?

I'm going to call you on it.

So what is this?

I mean, I can make it

very simple for you.

You want to talk?

I'll talk.

I have no problem with that.

But if this becomes

some half-ass ambush,

and you're putting me under the lamp,

I will walk. Now.

Are you familiar

with the Michael Calvess case?

Uh... Yes.

He was murdered.

Yes, I'm aware of that.

This investigation,

as you may or may not know,

has stretched over 60 days,

and failed to produce

any tangible evidence

or yield a single suspect.

It has not, however,

deterred or diminished

our efforts to apprehend

and punish those responsible.

Throughout your undercover stint,

you maintained prolonged contact

with the city's drug element.

Would that be an accurate statement?

I had some relationships.

Is it fair to say,

given your rather abrupt discharge

from the ranks 18 months ago,

that your cover and those

contacts might remain intact?

We feel that your presence

in this investigation

would be invaluable,

and would warrant

complete reinstatement,

homicide division,

detective grade.

When the suspects are caught

and charged, and a verdict rendered,

you would be eligible

for the assignment of your choosing,
