Alton confronts Franklin about his government alliance. Julia helps Teddy meet Rigo's demands. Gustavo gets proactive.

Are you wondering how healthy the food you are eating is? Check it -
I quit the Agency
and I joined Reed.

So I'm your contact now.

Get used to it.

The DEA's gonna be
looking for her.

Make sure

they never find her. That's it.

- What do you want, Gustavo?
- Business...

Cocaine never dropped,

- amigo.
- Let me check

with the Colombians.
I'll get back to you.

My people in Mexico
have been waiting.

It was supposed
to arrive two days ago.

I'll resume the drops

when you get me my fucking club.

I know that I said I didn't want
you to meet with the Colombians,

but what do you know
about nightclubs?

You know your daddy
and the rest of them pigs

snatched up my cousin.

Hey, I'm talking to you.


The only thing
that makes sense is that

she drugged me.

I need you to do something
for me, Nix.

I'm gonna bury Franklin Saint.

About fucking time.

I'm-a need you to find out
where he lays his head.

Smells good.


No, don't put it out
on my account.

I just wanted to make sure
you were okay.

Are you?

There's something I need
to tell you about Franklin.

♪ Hey, boy ♪

♪ I know it's what you wanted ♪

♪ Closer to me ♪

♪ Sweet thing... ♪


♪ I know just how to flaunt it ♪

♪ Can't you see? ♪

♪ I'll deliver... ♪


How you feeling? Any better?

A little.

You look better.

Hey, um...

How much longer
are you gonna be like this?

Like what?

Sitting around,
feeling sorry for yourself.

Okay. I'm done asking.

- Let's go.
- What are you doing?

Getting you packed up,
taking you to school.

- You're gonna make me go?
- That's right. Get up.

Daddy, I told you I'm not going
looking like this.

They gonna see my face
and think I'm some hood rat.

Well, then let's take
a road trip. Okay, baby?

And by the time we get there,
you'll look better.

- No I won't.
- Then why won't you tell me
what happened?

Because you'll just
make it worse.

So you gonna blame me,
and you won't even be honest?

Like you've been honest with me.

Either you're gonna get up,
pack your bags,

and get ready to leave,
or I'm gonna pull that money,

and you can call
Spelman yourself

and tell 'em you ain't coming.


That's what I'll do.


What's up? Y'all paged me.

You were young, but, um...

how much do you remember
about my cousin Jack?


I remember y'all both
moved west together,

joined the Panthers together,
he got killed by the police.

The FBI, but, yeah.

I also remember you was around
less and less after that.

What I never told you
was why he was murdered.

He was an informant.

Jack was a snitch? But you, you
told me he'd been gunned down,

that he'd been done wrong.

And he had.

He had been funneling
information to them for months.

And they must have felt
like he outlived his usefulness.

And when they decided that,
they killed him.

I'm telling you this now
because your mom told me

about your relationship
with Reed Thompson.


This ain't the same thing.

FBI, they was, they was trying
to destroy the movement.

I mean, Reed Thompson,
he needs me.

Mm-hmm. Got you out of prison,
he needed you so bad.

But what happens
when he doesn't?

Listen, I got people coming
at me every day, Alton.

He just another motherfucker
that need to be dealt with.

No, he ain't.

A gangster, you'll spot him
coming at you a mile away.

But if this man is United States
government, he will destroy you

and everything you know, and
you will never see him coming.

Está bien.

♪ Memories that continue
to amaze me... ♪

The place you wanted, Helena's,

is on the way out.

This is the new hot spot.

We can always change the name,
if you want to.

My advice would be not
to fuck with what works.

- Is that, um...?
- Yeah, yeah, yeah.

That's the kid
from Risky Business. Be cool.

How you do this?

How do you get anything
you want with no hassle?

Easy. Put the fucking gun on
their head and ask them to sign.

We overpaid, in cash.

And part of me wants to say
that you owe me half.

That's about $700,000.

But, because I believe so deeply
in our personal connection

and our business relationship,
this is on me.

You think we can get
Harrison Fords to come?

- I hear he likes Thursdays.
- Really?

Oh, come-- come on, give me
a fucking hug, man, come on.

I don't know what to say.

Say you'll resume the drops.

Colombia's best cocaína
will fall from the sky

like snow on a Christmas day.

- Hey.
- Hey.

H-Hey, babe.

♪ You won the key to my heart ♪

♪ You've got a special way
to move me ♪

♪ Don't stop now ♪

♪ Let's do it again ♪

♪ You keep me dancing
through the moonlight... ♪

Just say the word
and we are out of here.

♪ And I can't get enough... ♪

I thought I might go over
and say hi to the Cruise kid.

- Oh, really?
- Mm-hmm.

I've been at home playing blocks
with a toddler

for the last year.

♪ Whoa-ho ♪

♪ Instant replay ♪

♪ I got to have your love
again... ♪

I need this.

♪ Ooh, I feel so good
about us... ♪

The kid's no fool, he knows
how to cover his tracks.

Driver's license
has his mom's house

listed as his primary address.

Car registration, same thing.

I tried to poke around in the
family's real estate business,

but all their holdings
are hidden

in some shell corporation that's
registered out of the country.

- Jesus.
- Yeah.

So, I could stake out
his mom's place,

follow him from there, but a
white guy just sitting in a car,

- that neighborhood is...
- Yeah, yeah, don't do that.

Let me think on it a beat.

Thanks for trying.

No problem.

How you holding up?

Kitten said she ain't run.

Tried to fight head up.

But you already know
how they do.

Jumped her and Eva.

I tried to call her up,
see if she okay.

Andre got her
on some serious lockdown.

Eva says she was touched up
a bit, but she'll be all right.


How many inside?

At least three,
but they all gonna be strapped.

Who we aiming at?

Just be ready to shoot
every motherfucker in there

if need be.

Come on.

Hey, Franklin!

Wish you'd told me
you were coming.

And bringing friends.
I'd prepare something for you.

Nah, that would've ruined
the surprise.

How about some Arnold Palmers?
Yuda makes a mean one.

Nah-nah-nah, we good.

You been watching the games?

Yesterday night, I saw a guy...

looked just like you.

I called him Black Lightning!

As fun as it'd be to watch

my people beat your people
in all types of sports,

I'm here to talk about business.

I know I owe you. And, uh,
like I told you on the phone,

a couple weeks,

once the next shipment
goes through,

I'll get paid and so will you.

That weren't the deal.

Ever heard the expression, you
can't get blood from a stone?

Yeah, but I can get some
from you, though.

You seem to think I'm that same
kid that came here looking

for a few grams of coke.

You seem to have forgotten
what I did for you that day.

No, I haven't.

And that's the only reason why
I'm gonna give you

an opportunity for grace.

Our friend Reed Thompson.

I want to know everything
you can find.

Who he works for.
His real name.

You get me that in 48 hours,

you've bought yourself
some time.

You could've asked me that

with your gun
still in your waist.

For some reason I didn't think
you'd hear me unless I did.

I'll see what I can do.

A'ight. Tell your men
to be cool.

Be cool.

To who?

48 hours, Avi.

Don't make me come back here.

One of my faves.

The Spook Who Sat by the Door.

This is the story of a man
who was isolated,

manipulated, and weaponized
by the CIA.

What are these?

Church hearings, 1975.

Transcripts of an investigation

into the CIA and the FBI.

Word has it

they spied on King
and infiltrated

many of our black groups
to breed dissent.

Black Panthers.
Freedom fighters.

Even choirs.

When black folks organize,

scares the hell
out of the American government.

Yeah, I'll bet.

Tell the boy the most
important part about that there.

How they had a way to kill us

without any detection.

Called it the "ice gun."

Mm-hmm. They could shoot us,
and we wouldn't even know.

Only left a little red dot,
just like a bug bite,

and then a couple of days later,

boom, you fall dead
from a heart attack.

This young man does not need to
hear your conspiracy theories.

Let's go get you some cake.

Next time lead with cake, woman.

Tony Marino?

Can I see some I.D.?

Uh, we don't carry
that kind of I.D. around.

- I'm sure you understand.
- Yeah.

Then you can be anybody,

and I don't really have
to talk to you.

I'm sure you understand.

Can I call you Tony?


Mr. Marino...

Agent Marino.

Look... I understand.
You're frustrated.


An agent I've known for years
goes missing, is probably dead,

and some mystery woman
who claims to be CIA

is looking into it.

I'm baffled, is what I am.

What makes you think she's dead?

She missed her check-ins.

Her place made
to look like she ran,

which I know she would never.

The last time we talked,
she mentioned being exposed.

- Can you tell me when was the...
- No.

You tell me something.

Who exactly is Teddy McDonald?

I don't know. Why?

He was the guy
she was working for.

The alleged Fed...

who recruited her told her
she'd be accumulating evidence

against the Medellín Cartel.

Did you ever meet this man?

Did your agent have...

any other information about him?

Never met him.

Only know he's CIA,
or claimed to be.

Are you gonna tell me
what the hell is going on?

Unfortunately, I'm not allowed

- to go into any specifics.
- Yeah, course not.


I got no support at the DEA.

They're convinced
Lorena got turned.

It happens.
But I know it didn't.

I think she's dead.

And this guy McDonald's

He's the guy you need
to be talking to.

He also went under an alias.

Reed Thompson.

Track him down, you'll find out
what happened to my agent.

Agent Marino...

Do your fucking job.

Call me when you do.

- Don't worry, he ain't here.
- Thank God.

I'm starving.
Y'all got fries?

Leon kept begging me
to sneak out last night.

I was like,
"Nigga, you ain't slick."

Just trying to get some.

Hey, Shon-Shon
been sweating you?

Last time I saw her,
she had the nerve to speak.

But I ain't worried about her,
and you shouldn't either.

I was just...
making sure you was good.

I'll be better

when I get them clothes
you can't take with you.

Make all them bitches jealous.

I don't even know
if I want to go now.

And my dad has been sweating me.

Talking about...
he ain't gonna pay,

when, shit,
it's my college fund.

Wish I had a daddy
who'd saved up for my college.

You act like
I ain't got no problems.

Ain't saying that.

But, damn...

I'd trade places with you
in a minute.

I want to go away to school,
live in a new place,

study what I want instead
of having to get a shitty job.

I love you.

I mean, you're my best friend.

I don't know what I'm-a do
when you gone.

But go to school, ho.


So, uh...

should we make
some Kool-Aid, too?

Red or grape?


Always red.

Okay, let's get some more fries.

See, my pops, man,
he was impressed

with Benjamin Franklin,
you know.

Inventor, revolutionist, author.

Like all the things
he wanted you to be?

What he regrets he'll never be.

My dad named me after his uncle.

He was this... real guy's guy.

Army ranger, real-life war hero.

Expectations didn't really
get any lower from there.

Damn. That's a lot of pressure
to be a success.

America loves a winner.

Yeah. But what if America

really was the land
of the free, though?

You know, free everything.

Land, money, thought,

How would we measure success?

America is the land of the free.

You know? There's people
fighting to make sure

of that right this minute.

You don't agree?

White folks are fighting to keep
what they got to get even more,

and black folks
are fighting to survive.

And America don't give a fuck
whether we make it or not.

Yeah, obviously,
your people got a raw deal.

I'm not saying that.
What I'm saying is that

just because
the playing field isn't level,

it doesn't mean you don't
have every opportunity.

- You really believe that?
- Yes, I do.

It's what makes America great.

See, what you don't realize,
Reed, is there's two Americas,

and we don't live
in the same one.

But you know what's interesting
about that?

That despite that, somehow,

the two of us
still ended up doing dirt.

I mean, I know why I'm doing it.

What I don't understand is,
why are you?

Maybe I take the money
and do good.

Some kind of yay-slinging
Robin Hood, huh?


So, who are you helping, Reed?

The white man keep his place
on the throne?

Or am I part of some fucked-up
community outreach program

- for disadvantaged kids
in the hood? Huh?


I'll wait.


It's me.

What time?

Got to get going.

- Everything okay?
- Yeah.

No, I-I got the check.

Oh, thanks, man.

Thank you.

- Glad we did this.
- Yeah, man. Me, too.

Junior think
his shit rocking.

Wait till he hear my shit.

His ain't gonna be half as nice
when we get done.

That's what I'm talking about.

- Finally getting
that upgrade, huh?
- Yeah.

Bass about to be harder
than your heartbeat.

Where's he at?


Hey, I didn't want to ask you

in front of everybody,

but I heard you asking Avi
about the connect.

What's up with that?

Think he might work
for some big people.

- Colombians?
- Nah, not sure.

I'll let you know
if I find out, though. Promise.

- Unk.
- Nephew.

- You straight?
- Yeah, I'm good.

The hell you got them
so far in the back for?

- Shit gonna be muffled.
- I just want

whatever gonna make the people
feel me when I ride by.

Didn't want to take up
his whole trunk.

You ain't got to.
You just pull them forward.

They ain't gonna fit, boss.

Why are you questioning me, huh?

It is gon' fit.

You don't know how to do it.

You pull them forward, you
turn them around. What it say?

Jammin' Jeromes.

I get a second?

Yeah. Sure.

Give the people what they want.

- How you feeling? Good?
- Mm-hmm.

Shit, that man
about to quit today.

That man got five kids.

You know, I was hoping you might
let us store some of the product

in the back.

Just for a while.

That wouldn't be smart.

- They came to my house,
they'll come to my business.
- Nah.

Andre being on the bench means
we got some breathing room.

Ain't gonna be no more raids
for a minute.

It's just temporary.

Besides, you're the one who said

you don't want to have
to leave the shop

to go re-up with Manboy.

Don't this make
your life easier?

- Okay, temporary.
- Good.

One more thing.
What you remember

about cousin Jack? Alton's side?

He the one who got shot, right?

You know he was a snitch?

Heard some rumors
back in the day.

People believe that rumor?

Some did. Fuck you asking?

Nah, I'm just...
just curious to know happened.

What difference does it make?

Cops don't need no reason
to kill a black man.

Don't you mean the FBI?

Alton said they killed him.

You need to ask Alton
about that.

Come on before I change
my goddamn mind.

Have to move some stuff
around here.

Make sure you put that stuff
behind the inventory.


Go see what rooms you like, hmm?

Andale, ándale, vamos.


We might not be able
to leave after all.


He threatened to kill me.

Come after all of us.

You remember him?

What he did to get put away?

It's back here.

When you're not using it,
unplug it.

Damn thing's so old,
it overheats.

Yes, ma'am.

Any idea where to start?

Only paper that covered
our murders--

Back then and even now--
Is the I.A. Sentinel.

Clean up your mess
when you're done.

"Active member of the
Black Panther Party found dead.

Single gunshot wound
to the head. No gun recovered."

A single gunshot?

I have a question.


It's something that Rigo said.

Yeah, the DEA agent?

You overheard.

Well, I mean, technically,

I read his lips, but yeah.

She'd left the DEA.

She was working with me.

She was collecting intel
on various Colombians,

including Rigo.


Yeah, I made a mistake.

Tried to be in two places
at the same time.

It was fucking stupid.

I miscalculated...

and she died.

Jesus, Teddy.

What about her body?

It's gone.

For good. I mean,
the Agency's not exposed,

if that's what you're asking.

I'm sorry.

Yeah, me, too.

I'll go to school.

But I want to do the road trip.

The one we talked about
last year.

Santa Fe. Dallas.

School doesn't start
for another three weeks.

We take all that time.

By then I'll be healed.

How soon you want to leave?


Day after at the latest.

I've got to pack
and say bye to my friends.

Sounds fair.

There's a party tonight.

Lots of people will be there,
and I'd like to go.

Anything else?


You have something for me, Avi?

I do.

But there's one thing
I want to make clear first.

I've survived a lifetime

in a game into which
you have barely dipped

your pinky fucking toe.

And I'm not going away
any time soon.

Certainly not by some punk kid

who somehow got it into his head
he's the black Bronson.

You got what I came here for,
or no?

Yeah... I'm gonna give it to you

because I'm a man of my word.

Ah, no, Avi. You're gonna give
it to me because you lied to me

and because you owe me.

Don't get this shit
twisted, Avi.

You brought this on yourself.

I fear the kind of man
you're becoming.

There's one more thing
that's not in the file,

but it's gonna cost you
another week of free interest.

Go on.

The pilot, Matt,

he wasn't his partner.
He was his brother.

You sure?

We were in Panama,
he was out of his mind on coke,

his dick in some hooker's mouth,
and he let it slip.

Matt may not be his real name,

but they're certainly brothers.

I'll call you
when I have your money.


Tel Aviv, 1978.

Entered the country
as James Smith.

Two years later,

in Tehran.

That time he was known
as Thomas Parker.

So he is CIA.


Anything else?

Uh, his real name?
Who he's with here?

His history before that?

No. That...

that's it.

So now what?

He's never taken you
anyplace official?

You never signed anything
or received money?

No, but I gave him money
for the product.

- He working with anyone?
- Here and there.

It's always changing.

But the one person
he said was his partner,

turns out that guy
might be his brother.

He's isolated.

From the Agency.

It's gonna be that way, too,

'cause the government will want
to distance themselves

from pumping drugs
into our community.

He's alone.

You're not.

And you've got money.

A lot of it.

We can use that to fortify you.


And there's something else
I wanted to ask you.

Uh, about Jack?

I'd imagined Jack was gunned
down in a hail of gunfire.

A bloodbath.

But he wasn't.

He was killed by a single bullet
fired to the head.

What really happened to him?

When the FBI were done with him,

they told anybody who would
listen that he was a snitch.

And when the Panthers
caught wind of it...

...they were furious.

We all were.

And they wanted him tortured.

So they could see him suffer.

And I wasn't about
to let that happen.

So you killed him.

I don't expect...


You did what you had to do.

- I don't want that for you.
- No, no.

It's... it's not gonna end up
like that for us.


'Cause we gonna figure
this shit out.

Girl, if you don't get
out of my stuff...

- I'm helping.
- Girls.

I'm going to Louisiana's.
Can I pick y'all anything up?

Uh, thanks,

but we were gonna grab something
while we were out.

Ah. Your goodbye tour.

- Mm-hmm.
- That's right.

Well... have fun.


Where your pink halter top at?

Uh-uh. No, you can't
take this with you to Georgia.

It's too cold.
You're gonna freeze.

- I can wear a sweater.
- And cover this? Blasphemous.

Girl, if you don't give me
that shirt...

Last year he hit 17 homers
and 25 stolen bases.

Takes a slider for strike one.

Nice curveball.

Wow. Way out ahead of that one.

Strike two. One and two.

Steps back out
of the batter's box.

Brothers. I'm a cop.

- Put your hands on the wheel.
- What?

- Put your hands on the wheel!
- Don't move!
-Okay. Do you want me

- to put my hands...
- Put your goddamn hands

-on the wheel!
- Whoa, whoa, calm down.
I'm a cop.

I told you.
What are you doing? What...?

Get out of the car.
Assume the position.

Come on, put your hands
behind your fucking head.

I'm Officer Andre Wright.

- 37th Street Division.
- Shut your mouth.

Fuck. I said shut the fuck up.
