He's gone?

Well, Dr. Ekon,
find him, now!

That was Ben Jammin' and Melodynamic
All-Stars with "Burnin' Alive."

In trending news,
the police are still looking for a suspect

in the kidnapping of Elizabeth
Hess, a young college woman.

Police have asked citizens
to call with any information

that may help in finding
this young woman.

Now back to the tracks.

This one is fresh from
Barcenillia, "Bittersweet."

Wake up, Sarah, you're late.

- Can you drop me off?
- No.

It's too late
to catch the bus.

Wake up earlier next time.


Hello, Richard,
good morning.

Today you will be
working for Mr. Smith.

Hey, Richard.


I see you, uh, got the job.


- Yeah.
- Congrats.

Oh, hey, did you give
it some thought,

getting food from a food bank,
or maybe even food stamps?

It would really help
you and Sarah out.

We're fine.

Richard, I hope you don't mind,
I took Sarah to school.

- You did?
- Yeah.

I couldn't say no to her.


I know what you mean.

See ya.

- Morning, Mr. Smith.
- Good morning.

Where to, sir?

Sky Harbor Airport,
and hurry up.

- Dude.
- What's good?

What's good? Come on in.

Make yourself comfortable.

You want somethin' to drink?


I just came to chill for a
minute before I go back to work.


What you workin' for, my dude?


You know...

you could make way more money
movin' that stuff for me.


I ain't tryin' to
go back to jail.

Who are the learned...

for those that practice
what they know?

Hey, Angie, what's up?

Victor called in sick
today, so can you cover for him?

- Sure, what was his assignment?
- He was supposed to

pick up Mr. Swift's daughter
from her violin practice.

- Where at?
- I can text you the address.

- OK.
- Thank you.

- Hey.
- Can you pick me up?

Are you freakin' kidding me?

- Take the bus.
- I can't.

A dance audition came up,
I can't miss it.

I'm at work.

I gotta pick someone up,
and I can't be late.


It won't take long, I promise.

- Be ready when I get there.
- Thank you.

Thank you.

You owe me.


Where's the driver?

See ya later.

Hey, Angie.

I'm stuck in traffic.

Richard, you should've
been there already.

I'll be there soon,
I promise.

You wanna hang out
for a little while?

I can get some girls over.

Nah, I gotta make more runs.

You are workin' entirely
too hard, my friend.

An empire wasn't
built in a day.


You should consider getting
into the pimpin' business.

Plenty of money to be made,
less battles to be fought.

You can build your empire

faster than you can imagine.

I hear you.

I just don't like
dealing with the girls.

Becomes a hassle.

It's way less of a hassle

than being shot at
by your competition.


all you gotta do
is get the girls.

Pick up, drop off.

Nothin' to it.

You'll make a little less
than me, but, you know.

I pulled your file.

Seems this ain't
your first rodeo.

Am I being charged
with something?

Theft, possession
of narcotics, assault.

You got quite the history here.
You tell me.

If I'm not being charged,
I'd like you to let me go.

Or at least give me
my phone call,

so I can call my lawyer.


You're free to go.

We're not done here.

How is it my fault?

Really, Sarah?

If, and by if, I mean when,

the cops decide to put this
on me, I will go to jail.

Who will take care of you then?

- I can take care of myself.
- Yeah.

Sure you can.

How can she not see
where I'm coming from?

Oh, and get this,

she can take care of herself.

She's a kid.

Yeah, I know.

That's why I've got
to clear my name.

Work with the police,
they'll help you.

Hell no.

I've got to find
the girl myself,

then she can clear my name.

Crazy talk.
Hey, I'm here, open the door.

I've got the drinks.

And I've got the pizza.

So what's
it gonna be tonight?

I was thinking we can watch
season five, Supernatural.

Sounds good.

You're not really
considering this nonsense.

Yeah, I am.
It's no worry, though.

I'll talk to some people,
they'll get me where I need to go,

- and I'll find the girl.
- Yeah, see I don't buy that.

I'm still in contact with
some people from my past.

Yeah, past,
as in just leave it be.

Are we watching
Supernatural or not?

Get off of him!

You're under arrest

- for the kidnapping...
- Richard!

and lying to Swift.

- You're hurting him!
- Anything you say

can and will be used against
you in a court of law.

You have the right
to an attorney.

If you cannot afford one,
one will be appointed to you.

Come on.

- Wake up, Sarah.
- Come on!

- Hey...
- Tell her to call my lawyer!

Come on!

Why won't you believe me?

Because you have
a bad history, Richard.

If you're so sure,

- then why am I not behind bars?
- Oh you will be, you will.

As soon as you tell us
where the little girl's at.

What about the piano teacher?

Violin teacher.

And he's cleared.

- You're the only suspect.
- Bullshit.

I would never do
something like that.

Yeah? Well, your military
background suggests otherwise.

Are you sure this is
the extraction point?

Yeah, double checked!

Well, where the hell are they?

- Stay awake.
- Stop, stop, stop!


Isn't suicide
against your faith?

I'll do it.

Good man.

Detective Moro?


My name is David Peele,
and as of this moment,

I'll be representing
Mr. Evans.

You all right?

Now Detective,
I'm sure you'll find everything

in accordance with my firm's
representation of Mr. Evans.

And he's to be
released immediately.

Now please, remove his cuffs.

I'm going to Caden's house.

She made us some food.

Do you want me to
bring you some?

I'm fine.

I'll bring you some anyway.

Shower's to the left,

got some clothes
for you afterwards.

- You go first.
- OK.

I really appreciate
what you're doing.

But why?

When you see a brother in need
you just gotta help out.

Good morning.

You goin' out again tonight?

Money don't sleep.

I got somethin' for you.

- Take it.
- What's up?

I can't.

You need to start pullin' your
weight around here.

- Then we'll be leaving.
- You'd rather be homeless than accept my help?

This... isn't help.

Let me ask you somethin'.

What'd this country
do for you, huh?

Four years of service
and all you get

is a shiny medal and
a cold dumpster to sleep under.

We gotta start lookin'
out for ourselves.

You gotta look
after your sister.

Not workin' today?


I lost the job.

Damn, word?

You got fired?

- What the hell is this?
- Opportunity.

I been lookin' on ways
to supplement income,

expand our organization.

I think I found it.

Come here man,
let me show you somethin'.

Look, I came here today

'cause I need your help
finding someone.


All right,
let me show you this,

and we'll talk
about it afterwards.

What the hell
are we lookin' at?

Homie of mine, uh,

got me into
this deep web stuff.

Sellin' girls all
around the world.

They're lookin' for suppliers.

- What's your problem, man?
- Have you lost your mind?

- Have you lost your mind?
- Kidnapping kids?

Thank you, ladies and gents.

That last auction
was an exciting one,

so let's make
this one even better.

Now, a closer look
at our new merchandise.

She is beautiful, isn't she?

Don't be shy...



You've seen what you're buying,
so let's get started.

The auction starts
in three days.

Happy bidding.

Girls should be here soon.

Good. Good, good, good.

So what'd your boy say?

He, um...
sucker punched me.

That's some funny shit.

So, so, so, so, you try
and do right by him...

and he spits in your face, OK.

You gonna let him get
away with that?

He did that to me?

I would make sure
that he regrets it.

You hear me?

Happy bidding.

This is what they're trying
to say I'm involved in.


Couldn't you just show
that to the detective?

I mean, that proves
that you didn't do it.

No, because according to them,
I snatched the girl.

So it doesn't matter
if I'm not in the video.


Keep an eye on Sarah for me.

I'll be back in an hour.

- What's up, man?
- What's up?

- You got the money?
- Yeah.

- Cool.
- Thanks, man.

Hey, who do you get
your drugs from?

What, you a cop or somethin', man?

No, man.

Let me see your wallet.

All right.

- Put it on the ground.
- All right.

Richard Evans.

You're gonna get
yourself killed, man.

What's-what's wrong?

- Oh, God.
- Don't.

Screw that, I'm calling.

I'll be in trouble
if you call the cops.

But you're hurt,
I have to so something!

Take it easy.

You have two fractured ribs.

Did you...

Called my friend.

- He's a nurse.
- Thanks.


Take it easy.

- Hey, Doc.
- Richard.

Long time.

It's good to hear from you.

How's your family?

We're good.

It's just Sarah and I now.

Our parents passed
a while back.

Oh, sorry to hear.

How can I help you, son?

Would it be...

possible for me
to get some project F?

Ah, you know I can't do that.

Unless, of course,
you're planning on returning to service.

Someone I care
about is in trouble,

and I have to do
something to help them.

All right,
I'll see what I can do.

Man, I could go for like
three cheeseburgers right now.

You don't want no fufu?

That, too.

No, no, no, no, man.

Fufu is an African dish, man.

What's in it?

Uh, it's grated cassava

inside a goat meat soup, Mm.

- I tell you what.
- What's that?

When we get outta here,

I'll have my first fufu
with you.

No doubt.

You OK?

Yo, what's up here,
what's up here?

Breathe big,
open your mouth, uh-huh.

Look at me, look at me,
come on, come on.

Come on, you're OK,
you're OK, you're OK.

Red'll get you going,
green'll bring you down,

and blue will stabilize.

Thank you, Doc.

Good luck, son.

Brotha, how can I help you?

Hey, you know what's up,
act funny, you're dead.

Everything in the bag now.

Let's go, everything
in the bag now!

- All right, man.
- Let's go, let's go!

Let's go!

Call the cops!

I'mma kill you!

Javier Diaz,

you're gonna
get yourself killed, man.

You never answered my question.

Who do you get your drugs from?

- Screw you!
- Tell me!

His name's Carlos!
Carlos Ricardo,

I was supposed to meet him
at this spot tonight.

35th and McDowell.

Thanks for the info.

You know, you broke my ribs.

Consider us even.

Let's try this again.

If you disobey me,
you will go without food.

Get up.

Get on your knees.


Now come closer.

Get up!

Now beg.

Beg for your food.


Get off me!
Stop it, stop!

Stop, stop, let go!



We headin'
somewhere dangerous?

What do you want, Detective?

Where you headed
with the vest, Richard?

To a pawn shop to sell it.

You know you're not
off the hook, right?

Why are you so hellbent
on making me the bad guy?

Because you are.
Six months ago, I let a man off the hook,

he slaughtered
his whole family.

I'm not a killer.

You know, we found
a video of the girl.

Now, I know it's not you
in that video,

but I know you're involved.

You found a video of a girl
being abused and molested

by a man who's clearly not me,

and you still believe
that I'm involved.

I never said anything
about her being abused.

- What?
- I did not say a thing about the girl's condition.

Now, either you were there,

or you saw
the same video I did.

Now, you know where she is,

and you're planning on
taking them on yourself?

I don't know anything.

Look, I will arrest you

for withholding
crucial information.

One moment I'm a criminal,

the next I'm
withholding information?

Make up your mind, Detective.

If you wanna find the girl,

I suggest
you do your damn job.

Yeah, yeah, help yourself.

I think that's
an excellent idea.

She's smart...

- You don't have to turn it off.
- Nah, it's cool.

We don't want you interrupting

- our girlie show.
- I'm headed out.

So you guys do whatever it
is you planned on doing.

And be safe.

You should take
your own advice.

I'll be fine.

Well, you better be,
or I'll kill ya.


Be good.

...my house!

That's right,
pull your gun out.


Yeah, that's what I thought.

And when JD gets here,

you tell 'em.

No guns at my house.

All this shit 'cause you bought
some kids on the Internet!


I don't want any trouble.

I just came to talk.

You bring a gun into my house,

in front of my kids,

and you wanna talk?

I have nothin' to say to you.

Get up, get up!

This is the last time
you come into my house

and disrespect me.

Kill him.

So now you ready to talk?

Eat shit.

A little girl's
been kidnapped.

What do you know about kids
being sold on the deep web?

You know,
I just started walking...

without a cane.

All right,
all right, I'll talk.

So talk, damn it.

It's a guy named Chris
in North Phoenix.

2341 North Helena Drive.

That's it, man, that's it.
That's all I know.

I swear.

I think you're too
lenient with our son, sometimes.

You shouldn't be hanging out.

Ah, don't move, don't.

- Put the pizza down.
- OK.

Where's your wallet?

Come on.

Solomon Bates.

I know who you are,
keep it moving.



I was just
puttin' it out there.

I think you're
still living in the past

where boys and girls
are separate.

Go, go, go, go!

Drop it. Stand up.

- Where's your phone?
- Uh, in my bag.

Give it to me.

Yo, what about her?

Leave her, let's go,

we ain't pickin' her up.




Uh, easy, easy.


Tell your friend...

thank you for me.

He's not gonna do it again.

Did you...

did you see who took Sarah?

There were two of 'em.

Uh, one had a...
had an arm sling.

Where's my vest?

Be careful.


Where is she?!

Tell me where she is!

Tell me where my sister is!

He'll rape her.

He'll rape her till
she passes out.

Then he'll wake her up
and do it again.


- Richard.
- Doc.

How you feelin'?

Feel like I'm dyin'.

We're all dyin' son.

It's just a matter
of when and how.

So, you have any
soreness or pain

that's not
physically inflicted?

Just some stomach
and chest pain.

Your stomach's hurting?

Yeah, yeah, little bit.

And I suppose
you've been checking

your blood pressure like
I asked you to, right?

All the time, sir.


All right, let's take
a closer look, shall we?

All right, you're gonna
hold completely still,

and don't move.

You're having tightness
in your heart, aren't you?

Yes, sir.

And the headaches,
they're a lot worse

than what you're
tellin' me, aren't they?

Yes, sir.

Richard, I know you're
abusing the pills.

I told you what would
happen if you did this.

Basically, the pills
are destroying your body

because of frequency of use.

You have to lay off
and let your body rest.

You keep this up...

and they will kill you

- Do you understand me?
- Yes, sir.

Lay off.

I'm sorry I had
to come back here.

I just...

didn't wanna
be alone right now.

It's OK.

Did you find out anything?

About Sarah?


I had a lead,

and when I confronted him...

he killed himself.

That doesn't even
make any sense, I mean.

Oh, God.

Things are getting
out of control, Richard.

I mean, I tried
to be understanding,

and I tried to let
things go your way,

but clearly
that was a bad idea.

- Don't start.
- You know what,

you're too arrogant
for your own good.

I don't need
a lecture right now.

So if that's what you came here
for, then you can just leave.

No, you're... you're
full of shit, Richard!

All of this could've
been avoided

if you'd just allowed
the detective to help you.

Get out.

Get out!


What's up, man?

The hell happened to you?

I've been askin'
myself the same question.

You want somethin' to drink?

I'm good.

You look like shit, homie.

Got into a fight
with some people.

Now that's some
gangster shit.

That's why I came here.

I need your help.

I'm always down
to whoop some ass.

My sister's been kidnapped.


I think it's the same people
that took the other girl.

I know you've been trying
to expand into that.

I need your help
to get 'em out.

You're family.

I got your back.

Are you ready?

Good morning, ladies and gents.

The day is finally upon us.

I hope you're ready
with your checkbooks

because we have
a delightful surprise for you,

our loyal clients.

What you've just seen

is the new addition
to our collections.

Normally, we would hold
an auction for it alone,

but I've decided to
throw her in half off

to the lucky winner today.

- Take her and get her ready.
- Yes, sir.

And clean her up.

You sure this
is the right spot?


You strapped?

I don't need a gun.

Goin' in without a gun.

Let's go.

Going through the front
gets you shot.

- It doesn't matter.
- I'm out then.

You got a better idea?

Yeah, go through the back,
catch 'em by surprise.

All right.
I'll go 'round back

and make some noise
to bring 'em out there.

Then, you bust
through the front.

All right.

Good, you're up.

What's going on?

I knocked you out.


For the money.

You sold me out.

I sold you
and your sister out.

I'ma kill you,

and sell your sister
to the highest bidder.

It's my way
into the business.


Be careful not to
reopen your wounds.

What happened?


saved your life.

How did you know
where to find me?

Well, you told me
to do my job.

So I did.

I found you laying
next to a corpse.

That's why you got
the cuffs on you.

You got some explaining to do.

What time is it?

It's 10 o'clock.

No, no.

Hey, relax, you're fine.

Once the auction's complete,

they ship the girls over
to a remote location

where the buyers pick 'em up.

That process takes
place tomorrow.

- So when are we heading out?
- We?

you're not going anywhere.

My team and I,

we've got it figured out.

- You have to let me go.
- Look...

I know that you don't
have anything to do

with the kidnapping.

I also know they have Sarah.

Now you still have
a dead man...

that needs to be answered for.

So unfortunately,
until that gets sorted out,

you're on house arrest.

I wanna make myself
perfectly clear.

You violate that,

you're going straight to jail.

Now you two
have a good night.

Can you push me in the cart
like you used to?


It'll be fun.

Come on, Sarah.



- Fine.
- Yes!

I expected more of a fight.

It's pointless.

Sarah's in trouble,
and you think it's pointless

to try and save her?

Everything I've
done up to this point...

it's only made things worse.

It's only made things worse

because you've tried to

do it all by yourself.

You heard him.

Go to jail if
I leave the house.

Since when do you
listen to anyone?

What do you want me to do?

I want you to get off your ass

and save Sarah!



- Cade?
- What?

Thank you.


What the hell are you
doing outside of your house?

Look, I know you're mad,
but please hear me out.

- No.
- No please, Detective.

You have to let me
help save my sister.

Afterwards, I'll be more
than happy to go to jail.

- You ruined that chance.
- Please!

I could've went alone,
but I came to you instead.

Yeah, that's because you
didn't know where to go.

I found the kidnapper's
house by myself, didn't I?

Please, Detective.

All right, look.

If you come with us,

you stay the hell
out of our way.

I promise.

Thank you.

Thank me later, come on.

Put 'em in their cell.

Set up the live feed, and make sure
we don't lose signal like last time.


Good girl.


What are you standin'
around for, get to work!

- What do you want me to do?
- Just hang back, you let us do our job.

- I came here to help.
- Get your ass back in the car.

All right, the plan
is to stop them

before the transaction
is complete, OK?

Our priority is to
save the captives.

What about the scumbags
buyin' the girls?

Well, we have a team in place
hacking their service.

- Any questions?
- Let's do it.

All right, let's go.

Let's congratulate Mr. Smith,

our most recent winner.

This concludes our auction.

Be sure to check back next
month for fresh merchandise.

Until then, I bid you farewell.

Mr. Smith is the only one who likes
to pick up his girls personally,

and he's punctual,
so get 'em out,

and move 'em downstairs.

You got it.

What are you doing?

- Cops!
- Shit.

Put 'em in their cells
and get out there.

Lead the cops away
from this room.

What are you gonna
do if we can't?

You will,
or I'll kill you myself!


Didn't I tell you to
keep your ass in the car?

You're welcome.

You just love to
disobey orders, don't you?

It saved your life.


Come on, let's go,
the others need help.


- Are you hit?
- I'm good!

- Drop it!
- Screw you!

Mr. Smith, hi.

I suggest you not come.

We're experiencing
some difficulties.

No, rest assured,
your merchandise will be delivered to you.


Hey. Are you OK?

Damn it!

Come, it's time to go.


That's how you repay me?

Go! Go!

You OK?

You need some help
holding that gun?

Shut up!

- On your knees!
- Or what?

If you wanted to kill me,
you'd already've done it.

Hey, freak!

Show me.

Dr. Ekon, you gotta get better
control of your experiments,

especially the ones
wearing my face.

Yes, sir.

Believe me...

this won't happen again.

Be sure it doesn't.

Now clean this mess up.

Have a seat.

It's been settled.

Richard has agreed to the terms

in favor of a full pardon,

so we've wiped away
Richard's criminal records,

and he's now been reinstated
into active service.

Another fine job, Mr. Peele.

I'll be in touch.

How about
we get some pizza?

This late?

As the serpent
said unto the woman,

ye shall not surely die

for God doth know that in
the day ye eat thereof,

then your eyes shall be opened,
and ye shall be as gods.
