Guys at the department are concerned

about your recent behavior.

How's that make me feel?

F***ing fantastic.

Why don't you

in your own words?


Say it out loud,

Thought I was walking into

a controlled situation.

Instead, I found myself in the middle

of a meth lab with a pissed-off junkie.

- He assaulted you?

- He kicked my ass.



Meth labs aren't quiet.

Meth labs stink.

Someone knew the lab was there, and

someone was paid to look the other way.

I hear you.

Good. Good. So you know

I have to get back to work.

I have to figure this thing out.

'Cause this city is

crawling with dirty cops.

Do you hear that?



So this is my partner

on the other line.

They found government-issued

bullets at a crime scene.

So can I go do my job, or do you

want to keep talking bullshit?

I'm on my way.

Thank you. I feel

so much better now.


Morning, lieutenant.

So at 0427, a squad car

got a shots fired call

about the same time

we got a report

about a late-model sedan

speeding near old downtown.

The unit checking out

the shots fired

went into an alley off of third street

where they found two dead bodies.

These responding officers

report casings everywhere.

And I mean everywhere.

Oh, we'll take that.

Me and Cass.

No. I'm giving it

to Emerson and Flannigan.

You want Cagney and Lacey to take

it or you wanna get it solved?

All right, hotshot.

It's yours.


Let's go, partner.

Hey, say, nigga, is you high?

What the f*** are you doing?

Yeah, a little bit. We got

to control this case.

We control the case,

we control the evidence.

That might be smartest sh*t or

the dumbest sh*t you ever did.

It might be. The dumbest

sh*t was this morning.
