Law & Order: Special Victims Unit (1999–…): Season 9, Episode 8 - Fight - full transcript

Two troubled brothers are connected to murder investigation. However, detective Lake suspects that they are trying to put their lives back together, and that they are victims of a setup by a gang leader.

(male announcer)
IN THE CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM,

SEXUALLY BASED OFFENSES ARE
CONSIDERED ESPECIALLY HEINOUS.

IN NEW YORK CITY,
THE DEDICATED DETECTIVES

WHO INVESTIGATE
THESE VICIOUS FELONIES

ARE MEMBERS
OF AN ELITE SQUAD

KNOWN AS
THE SPECIAL VICTIMS UNIT.

THESE ARE THEIR STORIES.

YOU GOT US LOST.

AND WE HAVEN'T FOUND
ONE THING ON THE LIST.

SO WHAT? IT'S JUST
A STUPID SCAVENGER HUNT.

IT'S SUPPOSED TO TEACH US
HOW TO USE THE GPS



IN CASE OF AN EMERGENCY.

I WANNA GET
MY TRACKING MERIT BADGE.

[mocking]
"I WANNA GET
MY TRACKING MERIT BADGE."

YOU'RE NEVER GONNA MAKE IT
IN SEVENTH GRADE, RANDALL.

I THINK WE GO
THIS WAY.

HOLY COW, MARCUS.

WHAT? YOU SEE A SNAKE?

NO.

IT'S A LADY.

SHE NEEDS HELP.

I CAN GET
MY FIRST AID MERIT BADGE.

IT'S TOO LATE,
DORK FACE.

SHE'S DEAD.

(Warner)
JULIE DONOVAN, 17.



TWO BOYS FOUND HER.

CAUSE OF DEATH?

PROBABLY BLUNT FORCE TRAUMA
TO THE HEAD.

PROBABLY?

YOU DON'T SOUND
SO SURE.

SHE'S COVERED IN BRUISES
AND LIGATURE MARKS.

HARD TO TELL WHAT KILLED HER:

BEATING OR STRANGULATION.

ANY FLUIDS?

I FOUND SEMEN INSIDE OF HER,
SO WE SHOULD HAVE

THE PERP'S DNA.

AND THIS BASEBALL CAP
WAS NEXT TO HER BODY.

THAT'S A "C,"
VICTIM COULD BE

FROM CINCY OR CHICAGO.

HER LEARNER'S PERMIT
SAYS SHE'S FROM LONG ISLAND.

SIDE STRAP'S KINDA BIG,
THIS COULD BE THE PERP'S HAT.

(Lake)
HEY, LOOKEE HERE!

WHAT YOU GOT?

BUSTED CELL PHONE.

KILLER BEAT THE CRAP
OUT OF HER,

AND KEPT WHALING
ON THIS.

THAT KIND OF RAGE,
HE KNEW HER.

AND LEFT HER TO DIE
IN THE DIRT.

IT'S PATHETIC.

(Warner)
IT'S WORSE THAN THAT.

WHAT'S THAT?

HER LIPS.

I'M TELLING YOU,
YOU'RE WRONG.

IT'S NOT JULIE.

THERE MUST BE SOME MISTAKE.

BECAUSE, UH,
SHE'S ALL I GOT.

HER MOTHER LEFT HER
WHEN SHE WAS TWO.

DRUGS.

SHE'S WITH HER FRIENDS NOW.

AND, UH,
SHE DIDN'T CALL ME.

SHE FORGETS
TO CALL ME.

ANYBODY YOU KNOW
WHO DOESN'T LIKE YOUR DAUGHTER?

NO, EVERYBODY LIKES HER.

SHE'S, UH...
IT'S A PROBLEM.

WHY'S THAT A PROBLEM?

WELL, WHEN SHE TURNED 13,
SHE STARTED GETTING

INTO HIP-HOP AND, UM...

AND WHAT?

BLACK GUYS.

NO OFFENSE.

I DIDN'T LIKE IT.

BUT I DIDN'T WANT TO FIGHT
WITH HER ABOUT IT

BECAUSE I DON'T WANT HER
TO RUN OFF LIKE HER MOTHER.

HOW DID YOU HANDLE THIS?

I TOLD HER THAT AS LONG
AS SHE KEPT HER GRADES UP,

I DIDN'T CARE
WHO SHE HUNG OUT WITH.

ARE YOU READY,
MR. DONOVAN?

[shaky breathing]

[crying]

DETECTIVE?

WE GOT A HIT
ON THE DNA.

YOU KNOW?
YOU KNOW WHO DID THIS?

MR. DONOVAN,
YOU NEED TO GO HOME AND LET--

I WANNA KNOW
WHO MURDERED MY DAUGHTER.

(Lake)
I'M SORRY, BUT WE CAN'T DO
ANYTHING--

TELL ME WHO KILLED
MY DAUGHTER!

YOU KNOW WHO DID IT,
YOU TELL ME WHO THEN!

[crying]
PLEASE, IT'S MY BABY!

(Cragen)
DNA IN THE VICTIM
BELONGS TO MIKE KONA.

COLLARED FOR TWO BURGLARIES
AND A RAPE CHARGE

THAT WAS LATER DROPPED.

GUY'S A WORLD CHAMPION FIGHTER.

WHAT IS HE,
BOXER?

UH, TECHNICALLY,
HE'S A MIXED MARTIAL ARTIST.

(Fin)
MEAN THEM CATS TRY TO KILL
EACH OTHER IN A CAGE?

YOU KNOW, WHERE I COME FROM,
WE DON'T CALL THAT FIGHTING.

YOU KNOW, THESE GUYS
ARE THE GREATEST ATHLETES

IN THE WORLD.

YOU SOUND
LIKE A FAN.

(Lake)
I'M MORE THAN THAT.

(Fin)
GET OUT OF HERE,
THAT'S NOT YOU.

BET YOUR ASS, IT IS.

(Cragen)
"NAPTIME WINS IN A.C."

(Fin)
WHAT, THEY CALL YOU NAPTIME
BECAUSE YOUR BORING STORIES

PUT EVERYBODY TO SLEEP?

'CAUSE OF MY RIGHT HOOK.

WHEN IT HITS YOUR HEAD,
IT'S LIGHTS OUT.

THIS WAS
MY LAST AMATEUR FIGHT.

YOU KNOW, I WAS GONNA QUIT
THE FORCE

AND GO PRO?

WHAT HAPPENED?

TORE MY A.C.L.

NOW THE ONLY NAPTIME YOU GET
IS WHEN YOU FALL ASLEEP

AT YOUR DESK.

I STILL TRAIN.

THERE'S ONLY ONE M.M.A. GYM
IN MANHATTAN.

SOMETIMES KONA
WORKS OUT THERE.

YOU THINK HE COULD
BE THERE RIGHT NOW?

HE HAS A TITLE FIGHT
ON PAY-PER-VIEW TONIGHT.

I BET HE'S ALREADY
AT THE GARDEN.

[cheering and punching]

(referee)
HE'S OUT, HE'S OUT. THAT'S IT.

[bell rings]

[cheers and applause]

I LOVE YOU, BABY!

WHOO!

HI, BABY.
HI, BABY!

(man)
MAKE ROOM FOR THE CHAMP!

I DON'T CARE IF YOU ARE COPS.
GET OUT OF MY WAY.

WHOA. DOWN, BOY.

WHAT THE HELL
ARE YOU DOING, BUD?

(Fin)
MIKE KONA, YOU NEED TO COME
WITH US.

WHAT FOR?
HE DIDN'T DO NOTHING.

STAY OUT OF THIS,
TRACI.

HEY, LOOK, BUD,
I JUST WON A CHAMPIONSHIP FIGHT.

WHY DON'T YOU CUT ME
A BREAK, HUH?

SURE, THE SAME KIND
OF BREAK YOU CUT JULIE DONOVAN?

LET'S GO.

I NEVER SEEN
THAT GIRL BEFORE.

REALLY?

IT'S FUNNY, 'CAUSE WE FOUND
YOUR SEMEN INSIDE OF HER.

ONLY ONE WAY
FOR THAT TO HAPPEN.

YOU KNOW, YOUR RAP SHEET
SAYS YOU'RE CHARGED

WITH RAPE LAST YEAR.

YOU A GOOD GUY RAPIST?

THAT CHARGE WAS DROPPED.

IT'S REALLY NOT
WHAT YOU THINK.

IT NEVER IS.

LOOK, BRO, MAN TO MAN.

I WANT TO BELIEVE YOU,

BUT THE FACTS
ARE JUST MAKING IT REAL HARD.

LOOK, THE RAP SHEET
SAYS YOU RAPED TRACI BELL.

GUESS YOU COULDN'T FIGHT OFF
THE URGE TO RAPE AGAIN, HUH?

I DIDN'T RAPE JULIE.

AND I CERTAINLY
DIDN'T RAPE TRACI.

SHE'S MY FIANCEE.

(Traci)
WELL, THEY SAID IT WAS RAPE.

WHO'S THEY?

THE COPS.

WE WERE BOTH REALLY DRUNK

AND MAKING A LOUD RACKET
UNDERNEATH THE SHEETS

AT THIS MOTEL.

I GUESS SOMEONE HEARD
MY SCREAMS

AND THOUGHT I WAS
IN TROUBLE.

IT WAS ALL
A MISUNDERSTANDING.

YEAH, RIGHT,
LIKE IT WAS A MISUNDERSTANDING

LAST NIGHT WHEN HE RAPED
ANOTHER GIRL

AND THEN KILLED HER.

KONA WOULDN'T HAVE
DONE THAT.

THEN HOW'S HE GET
HIS DNA INSIDE HER?

LISTEN, I'M NOT GOING TO HELP
YOU BUILD A CASE AGAINST HIM.

LOOK, IF YOU'RE AFRAID
OF HIM

AND THINK
HE'LL HURT YOU...

HONEY, DIDN'T YOU
JUST HEAR ME?

I'M A SCREAMER.

I GOT THIS BOY
WRAPPED AROUND MY FINGER.

WELL, IF YOU'RE NOT AFRAID
OF HIM,

THEN WHY'D YOU DROP
THE RAPE CHARGE?

BECAUSE HE BOUGHT ME
THIS BIG FAT DIAMOND RING.

NOW I GET IT.

YOU GUESS HE'S YOUR TICKET
OUT OF THIS DUMP.

ARE YOU CALLING ME
A GOLD DIGGER?

NO, I'M CALLING YOU COLD.

YOUR FIANCE RAPED AND MURDERED
A YOUNG GIRL,

AND YOU DON'T GIVE A DAMN.

PROBABLY ONE OF THOSE
GROUPIE SLUTS HE WAS BANGING.

AND YOU DON'T CARE
IF HE MESSES AROUND?

NOT AS LONG
AS I'M NUMBER ONE.

YOU EVER SEE KONA
WITH THIS GIRL?

NO, BUT I HAVEN'T CHECKED
THE TAPE LATELY.

WHAT TAPE?

I BOUGHT ONE OF THESE NANNY CAMS
AT THE SPY SHOP.

IT'S A PICTURE FRAME
WITH A VIDEO CAMERA IN IT.

IF WE EVER GOT MARRIED,
I WANTED PROOF HE WAS CHEATING.

FOR WHAT?

FOR THE DIVORCE.

OPEN THE BACK OF THE FRAME,
AND THERE'S

A PULLOUT USB FLASH DRIVE.

YOU LOOK SO HOT,
KONA.

YEAH?

SMILE, BABY.

NO PICTURES.

COME ON, JUST ONE.

I SAID NO PICTURES.

NO PICTURES!
AAH--

OH, WE GOT A SNEAK PREVIEW
OF THE REST.

YOU KNOW, WE DON'T WANT
TO EMBARRASS YOU,

BUT IF JULIE
SOLD THAT PICTURE,

YOUR NEW NICKNAME
WOULD BE TINY.

AND I THOUGHT THE CAMERA
WAS SUPPOSED TO MAKE EVERYTHING

LOOK BIGGER.

SHE DIDN'T RESPECT YOU,
MAN.

SHE WAS GONNA SHOW
THE WHOLE WORLD YOUR PRIVATES.

SO YOU TAKE HER
TO THE PARK.

SHE STARTS SCREAMING
AND WON'T SHUT UP.

THEN YOU GRAB HER
BY THE FACE

AND RIP OFF HER LIPS.

THAT WOULD SHUT HER UP.

I JUST GAVE HER
A LITTLE SLAP.

UH-HUH.
YOU GUYS ARE CRAZY.

YOU NEVER SAW ME
HURT JULIE.

WE HAD SEX, THAT'S IT.

YOU SAY SEX,
WE SAY RAPE!

SHE WANTED IT.
YOU SAW THE TAPE.

THE LITTLE NYMPHO
WAS ALL OVER ME.

(Fin)
THAT'S FOR A JURY
TO DECIDE.

[door opens]

(Cragen)
THIS IS MR. SULLIVAN.

HE REPRESENTS
PRESTIGE FIGHTING ALLIANCE,

KONA'S LEAGUE.

YEAH, WELL, YOU GOT
AN UPHILL BATTLE ON THIS ONE.

I DON'T THINK SO,
BIG GUY.

COPIES
OF THE MEMBERSHIP CARD SWIPES

FROM THE GYM MR. KONA
WAS AT LAST NIGHT.

SOMEONE ELSE COULD'VE SWIPED
HIS CARD.

VIDEO ON THESE TAPES
WAS TAKEN

FROM THE GYM'S
SURVEILLANCE CAMERAS.

SHOWING EXACTLY WHEN MR. KONA
ARRIVED AND LEFT.

WE STILL GOT HIM
FOR BATTERY.

THE GIRL IS DEAD.

THE ONLY WAY TO MAKE
THAT CHARGE STICK

IS BY PLAYING THAT TAPE
IN AN OPEN COURT.

IT'S A HELL OF A THING
FOR A GRIEVING FATHER TO SEE.

CUT HIM LOOSE.

[door opens]

I'LL HAVE YOUR BADGES
FOR PUTTING KONA THROUGH THIS.

HE'S LUCKY WE DIDN'T BUST HIM
FOR THE BATTERY.

I SEE YOU ON THE STREET,
PRETTY BOY, YOU'RE DEAD.

WELL, BRING IT ON.

COME ON, MIKE,
DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME.

KONA WOULD'VE BEAT
YOUR ASS.

I WOULDA HELD MY OWN
FOR A COUPLE OF ROUNDS.

I'D LIKE TO SEE THAT,
BUT DON'T EXPECT ME

TO CRY AT YOUR FUNERAL.

[loud bang]
WHAT THE--

[screaming]

HEY, HEY,
DROP THAT GUN!

(Fin)
DROP IT!

(man)
SOMEBODY CALL A BUS!

TERRY, WHAT THE HELL
DID YOU DO?

IT WAS FOR JULIE.

(Fin)
HOW WAS TERRY DONOVAN'S
ARRAIGNMENT?

NO BAIL, JUDGE SENT HIM
TO RIKER'S.

(Lake)
POOR GUY. MAYBE THE JURY
WILL GO EASY ON HIM.

GUY'S A MURDERER.

IF HE DOES 20 YEARS,
HE'LL BE LUCKY.

DNA CAME BACK
ON THE BASEBALL HAT

FOUND AT THE CRIME SCENE.

MATCHES A JADON ODAMI.

HE'S A SEALED JUVENILE RECORD,
THAT'S ALL WE KNOW ABOUT HIM.

UH, CAPTAIN?

I PULLED SOME VIDEO FOOTAGE
FROM THE SMASHED SIM CARD

ON JULIE DONOVAN'S PHONE.

SOMEBODY'S BUYING ME LUNCH
FOR THIS ONE.

[hip-hop music]

(Cragen)
WELL, THERE'S JADON ODAMI

DANCING
WITH OUR VICTIM.

LOOKS LIKE THEY
ABOUT TO GET IT ON.

MAYBE JADON WAS
HER BOYFRIEND.

I GUESS HE
DIDN'T LIKE SHARING.

CHECK HOW JULIE GOES
BETWEEN, UH, JADON

AND THE OTHER GUY.

(Cragen)
WHEN WAS THIS SHOT?

TIME DATE-STAMPED WAS
FROM THE NIGHT OF THE MURDER.

OKAY, SO SHE DOES KONA,
THEN SHE GOES

TO THIS PARTY
AND HOOKS UP WITH THE KILLER.

ONLY QUESTION IS WHERE?

BANNER SAYS
KAPPA DELTA ALPHA.

KAPPA DELTA ALPHA'S
ONE OF THE OLDEST FRATERNITIES

ON CAMPUS.

LOOKS LIKE YOU GUYS STUDY
REAL HARD.

WE HAD A LITTLE PARTY
A COUPLE NIGHTS AGO.

WAS HE THERE?

SURE.

JADON RUSHED THE FRAT
LAST SEMESTER.

WHAT'S UP WITH THAT FLAG?

UH, K.D.A. WAS FOUNDED
BY A DIRECT DESCENDANT

OF JEFFERSON DAVIS.

WE'RE VERY PROUD
OF OUR HERITAGE.

YOU KNOW YOU LOST
THE WAR.

WHY WOULD A YOUNG BLACK KID
WANT TO PLEDGE THIS FRATERNITY?

A CERTAIN SPECIAL INTEREST GROUP
MADE WAVES.

YOU MEAN AL SHARPTON
PICKETED YOUR ASS.

YEAH, HE FORCED US TO LET
THE BROTHERS IN.

FREE ROOM AND BOARD.

THE BROTHERS?

YOU GOT A LOT OF BALLS
SAYING THAT TO MY FACE.

NO, THEY'RE REAL BROTHERS.

JADON AND EZRA ODAMI.

I'LL TAKE YOU
TO THEIR ROOM.

DID YOU SEE JADON OR EZRA
WITH THIS GIRL AT THE PARTY?

THEY WERE PRACTICALLY
HAVING SEX WITH HER

ON THE DANCE FLOOR.

I TOLD THEM
TO LEAVE HER ALONE.

WHY?
'CAUSE SHE WAS WHITE?

BECAUSE SHE LOOKED
UNDERAGE.

WAS I RIGHT?

SHE FILED CHARGES?

SHE COULDN'T.
SHE WAS FOUND MURDERED.

HEY, MAN.

WHAT'S GOING ON?

DUDES, THAT GIRL
YOU HOOKED UP WITH AT THE PARTY.

SHE GOT KILLED.
HEY.

I WILL NOT TOLERATE
THIS TYPE OF CHAOS.

CHASING STUDENTS
AROUND CAMPUS HOUSING.

WOULD YOU RATHER HAVE
A MURDERER ON CAMPUS?

MURDERER? WHO?

HIS NAME IS JADON ODAMI.

UH, JADON.

YES, HE AND HIS BROTHER EZRA
EXEMPLIFY

HUDSON'S COMMITMENT
TO DIVERSITY.

THAT'S RICH WHITE GUY SPEAK
FOR I'M GONNA LET

A COUPLE OF POOR GHETTO KIDS
GET A TASTE OF THE HIGH LIFE.

CAN WE SEE THEIR FILES?

USUALLY YOU'D NEED
A WARRANT.

BUT WE'LL FOREGO THE FORMALITY
SINCE I'M EXPELLING THEM.

WHAT HAPPENED TO INNOCENT
UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY?

COME ON, DETECTIVE.

YOU SAID YOU WERE LOOKING
FOR A MURDERER.

I HAVE A DUTY TO PROTECT
MY STUDENTS FROM THUGS.

(Fin)
I HAVEN'T SEEN THAT MANY THUGS
WITH STRAIGHT "A"s.

JADON AND EZRA
GRADUATED HIGH SCHOOL

AT THE TOP OF THEIR CLASS.

YEAH, WELL,
THAT'S NOT SAYING MUCH.

CHECK OUT THE ADDRESS
OF THEIR SCHOOL.

(Lake)
LOOK FAMILIAR?

(Fin)
PRISON SCHOOL.

(Mr. Ploplis)
20 YEARS AT THIS SCHOOL,

JADON AND EZRA
WERE MY BEST STUDENTS.

THEY'RE GOOD KIDS.

YOUR WARDEN SAYS EZRA
HAS THREE ROBBERY COLLARS.

YOU CALL THAT
A GOOD KID?

THOSE ROBBERIES
WERE SURVIVAL CRIMES.

THEY ONLY STOLE FOR FOOD
AND A PLACE TO SLEEP.

DOESN'T HELP THE VICTIM,
DOES IT?

THOSE BOYS
WOULD NEVER HURT ANYBODY.

MUCH LESS KILL 'EM.

IF YOU'RE SO SURE
THEY'RE INNOCENT,

WHY DON'T YOU TELL US
WHERE THEY ARE,

SO WE CAN HELP THEM
GET OFF THE HOOK?

LOOK, I DON'T KNOW
WHERE THEY ARE,

BUT ONCE YOU READ THEIR FILES,
YOU WON'T BE SO QUICK

TO JUDGE 'EM.

THE TEACHER WAS RIGHT,
THE SYSTEM FAILED JADON AND EZRA

THE DAY THEY WERE BORN.

THE SYSTEM DIDN'T MAKE THEM
COMMIT MURDER.

WELL, LOOK AT THE HAND
THEY WERE DEALT.

ADDICTED MOTHER,
DIFFERENT ABSENT FATHERS,

BOTH IN PRISON.

LIFE WITH MOM
WAS A REVOLVING DOOR.

FOSTER CARE WHEN SHE WAS HIGH,
BACK HOME WHEN SHE CLEANED UP.

THEY GOT BEAT ON BY A BUNCH
OF THEIR FOSTER PARENTS.

THESE BROTHERS
WERE TICKING TIME BOMBS.

THEY WERE JUST KIDS.

YOU KNOW,
THEY DIDN'T HAVE A CHANCE.

WHAT ARE YOU,
A SOCIAL WORKER NOW?

THEY LIVED
IN 19 DIFFERENT FOSTER HOMES.

SOMEONE'S GOTTA HELP THEM.

WELL, WAIT UNTIL YOU HAVE
YOUR OWN FAMILY.

HEY, WHAT'S THAT
SUPPOSED TO MEAN?

IT MEANS THAT WHEN YOU HAVE
A DAUGHTER JULIE DONOVAN'S AGE,

YOUR HEART'LL STOP BLEEDING
FOR THE MOPES WHO KILLED HER.

YOU'RE SAYING THAT I DON'T GIVE
A CRAP ABOUT THE VICTIMS?

WE KEEP IT CIVIL AROUND HERE,
OR YOU'RE GONE.

ALL RIGHT,
GO COOL OFF.

WE NEED TO FIND JADON
AND EZRA.

LET'S START
WITH THEIR BIOLOGICAL MOTHER,

JANELLE ODAMI.

SHE LIVES
AT THE MARCY PROJECTS.

[knocking]

[hip-hop music]

YOU BOYS LOOK IN NEED.

I'M GONNA LET THE MEXICAN HERE
FEED THE CAT

HIS HORCHATA FOR TWENTY.

AND THE BROTHER,
SINCE WE TIGHT,

I'M GONNA LET YOU HIT IT
FOR TEN.

UGH. DAMN!

[grunting]

(Lake)
HEY!

[groaning]

HEY!

HEY, I AIN'T FINISHED!

PACK IT IN, UNLESS YOU
WANNA STAY AT MY PLACE.

YOU JUST COST ME
TWENTY BUCKS.

YOUR NAME JANELLE ODAMI?

YOUR NAME NASTY ASS PIG?

LOSE THE ATTITUDE.

WE'RE HERE ABOUT YOUR SONS,
JADON AND EZRA.

MY BABIES.

THE TEACHER SAID
THEY WERE GENIUSES.

THEY MUST HAVE GOT IT
FROM THEIR FATHERS' SIDE.

HEY, UNCLE TOM,
WHAT'S IT LIKE IN THE HOUSE?

LEAST I AIN'T SELLIN' IT.

DAMN, WHITE, BLACK, I'M GETTIN'
IT FROM ALL SIDES TODAY.

HEY, MAN, HER PIMP
CALLED ME A MEXICAN.

IS THAT GOOD OR BAD?

(Janelle)
RUN!

PIPE DOWN, LADY!

RUN, BABY!
NO, MAMA.

WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE?

GIVING MYSELF UP.

I KILLED THAT GIRL.

SO WHY'D YOU KILL
JULIE DONOVAN?

I DON'T WANT TO TALK
ABOUT IT.

WHAT, YOU GOT THE STONES
TO WALK IN HERE

AND CONFESS TO A MURDER,

AND YOU DON'T WANNA TALK
ABOUT IT?

LOOK, I ALREADY COPPED TO IT.

WHAT, YOU NEED ME TO FILL OUT
YOUR PAPERWORK TOO?

I'M DONE WITH HIM.

JADON,
WHERE'S YOUR BROTHER?

EZRA'S GOT NOTHING
TO DO WITH THIS.

YOU'RE LOOKING AT LIFE.

YOU TALK, MAYBE WE CAN DO
SOMETHING FOR YOU.

NO.

THANKS.

THOUGHT YOU MIGHT WANNA
SAY GOOD-BYE

TO YOUR MOTHER BEFORE WE TAKE
HER DOWN TO CENTRAL BOOKING.

WHAT THEY LOCK YOU UP FOR, MA?

YOU KNOW HOW IT IS, SON.

CRACKERS GOT NOTHING BETTER
TO DO THAN MESS

WITH MY BROKE ASS.

HOW YOU BEEN?

(Jadon)
DOIN' ALL RIGHT.

HOW 'BOUT YOU?

THIS HEROIN'S GOT YOUR MOM
BY THE SOUL, BABY.

TOOK ME TO PLACES
THAT JESUS WON'T GO.

COME HERE, BABY.

I'M SO SICK AND TIRED
OF BEING SICK AND TIRED.

ALL SHE'S PUT HIM THROUGH,
AND HE STILL LOVES HER.

WHEN YOU DON'T HAVE ANYTHING,
YOU TAKE WHAT YOU CAN GET.

[door opens]

(Fin)
VISITING TIME IS OVER.

YOU KNOW,
YOU COULD HELP ME OUT HERE.

IF I TELL YOU WHAT HAPPENED...

YOU LET HER GO?

YOU TALK, SHE WALKS
OUT OF HERE TONIGHT.

I'M HURTIN' SO BAD,
JADON.

I DON'T WANNA KICK
IN PRISON.

I NEED TO GET WELL.

DEAL.

THAT'S MY BABY.

ALWAYS LOOKIN'
AFTER HIS MAMA.

DOCKET ENDING 2500,
PEOPLE V. JADON ODAMI.

(Judge)
ON THE CHARGE OF MURDER
IN THE SECOND DEGREE,

HOW DO YOU PLEAD?

NOT GUILTY, YOUR HONOR.

THAT'S NOT
WHAT I TOLD YOU TO SAY.

YOU WERE COERCED
DURING INTERROGATION.

YOUR HONOR, THERE WAS
NO COERCION.

THE DEFENDANT
FREELY CONFESSED.

REALLY--WHAT, HIS MOTHER
JUST HAPPENED TO POP IN

DURING THE MIDDLE
OF HIS INTERVIEW?

YOUR HONOR,
I KILLED JULIE DONOVAN.

I PLEAD GUILTY.

LISTEN TO YOUR ATTORNEY,
SON.

YOU FIRED.

OKAY, HE'S NOT
MY LAWYER NOW.

IF YOU PLEAD GUILTY,

YOU'LL HAVE TO SIGN
A WAIVER OF APPEAL.

WHICH MEANS YOU CAN'T CHANGE
YOUR MIND.

THAT'S COOL.

YOUR HONOR, THE PEOPLE
HAVE NO OBJECTIONS.

IN ORDER FOR ME TO HEAR
YOUR CONFESSION,

YOU'LL HAVE TO GIVE THE COURT
THE DETAILS OF YOUR CRIME.

ME AND MY BROTHER WERE
AT A PARTY AT THE FRAT HOUSE.

THIS WHITE GIRL WAS DANCING
WITH ME ALL NIGHT.

AFTER WE HAD SEX,
I WAS WALKING HER HOME

AND TRIED TO ROB HER.

SHE STARTED FIGHTING ME OFF,
SO I BEAT ON HER.

SHE WOULDN'T STOP YELLING,

SO I GRABBED HER FACE
AND SQUEEZED IT.

SOMETHING SNAPPED
AND EVERYTHING WENT RED.

IS THE ALLOCUTION SUFFICIENT,
MS. NOVAK?

IT IS, YOUR HONOR.

VERY WELL. YOUR PLEA OF GUILTY
IS ACCEPTED.

SENTENCING IN TWO WEEKS.
NEXT CASE.

[gavel bangs]

(Fin)
YOU'RE HERE EARLY.

SOMEONE'S GOTTA CLOSE UP
THE JULIE DONOVAN MURDER.

WHERE YOU BEEN?

WE LOCKED UP JADON ODAMI
LAST NIGHT.

HE PLEAD GUILTY
AT ARRAIGNMENT.

BUT THE OTHER KILLER'S
STILL ON THE STREET.

JADON SAID HE WAS SOLO.

GOT A FRIEND AT FAMILY COURT.

SNUCK A PEEK
AT JADON'S JUVIE RECORD.

EVERY ONE OF HIS CRIMES,
HE HAD A PARTNER.

GUESS WHO?
EZRA.

GIVE THAT MAN
A GOLD STAR.

LOOK, YOU GOT
BOTH YOUR LITTLE ANGELS

ON VIDEO DIRTY DANCING
WITH JULIE.

MAYBE SHE WASN'T IN THE MOOD
FOR A THREESOME,

THINGS GOT ROUGH,
SHE GOT DEAD.

AND WE GOT PLAYED.

COUNT ON THAT.
I'M GONNA GRAB BREAKFAST.

GOOD LUCK FINDING EZRA.

WANT TO HEAD DOWN TO RIKERS
AND TALK WITH JADON?

WHAT'S THE POINT?

HE'S DOING A LIFE SENTENCE
FOR HIS BROTHER.

HE'S NOT GONNA GIVE HIM UP.

GUESS I GOTTA FIND EZRA
MYSELF THEN.

[sighs]

NOW, WHY WOULD TWO BROTHERS
FROM BROOKLYN

WEAR HATS WITH THE LETTER "C"
ON IT?

(Fin)
MAYBE IT'S A GANG THING.

YOU KNOW, IF YOU'RE RIGHT,
THEN EZRA'S HANGING OUT

WITH HIS HOMIES.

THAT'S HIS ONLY SAFETY NET.

WELL, WHAT GANG?

(Fin)
THEY'RE REPRESENTIN'
WITH A "C."

IF THEY WERE CRIPS, THEY
WOULDN'T WEAR ANYTHING RED.

I GOT A GUY
AT GANG CRIMES.

HE'LL HOOK US UP.

THEY'RE THE NEW KIDS
ON THE BLOCK.

THE "C" HATS...

REAL POPULAR
WITH THE CORNER HUSTLERS.

TELL US ABOUT 'EM.

VERY SMALL,
VERY WELL ORGANIZED.

ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE
TO INFILTRATE.

BLOOD IN, BLOOD OUT.
AND THEY MEAN IT.

YEAH, WE GOT A COUPLE
OF MEMBERS WE WANNA RUN BY YOU.

JADON AND EZRA ODAMI.

I READ ABOUT JADON
IN THE PAPER.

THAT YOUR CASE?

YEAH,
EZRA'S IN THE WIND,

AND WE THINK HE'S HANGING OUT
WITH HIS FELLOW GANG MEMBERS.

CORNER HUSTLERS CENTER OUT
OF THE MARCY APARTMENTS.

THAT'S WHERE
THEIR MOMS LIVES.

YOU'LL HAVE A GOOD LUCK GETTIN'
ANYONE IN THE PROJECTS TO TALK.

THESE GUYS RUN
THE PLACE.

HEY, I THOUGHT
THE LATIN KINGS RAN THE PLACE.

IT'S A WAR
BETWEEN THE TWO.

I BET THE KINGS WOULDN'T MIND
RATTING OUT THE COMPETITION.

(Lake)
WE'RE SITTING DUCKS.

WE'RE LIKE HONEY
TO BEES, MAN.

HERE COME THE BEES.

YO, THIS IS
LATIN KING COUNTRY, SON.

WHAT ARE CORNER HUSTLERS
STILL DOIN' IN MARCY--

GUN!
I AIN'T GOT NOTHIN, MAN!

I'M JUST PLAYIN', MAN!

I'M JUST PLAYIN', MAN.
I AIN'T GOT NOTHIN', MAN.

YO, WHAT'S--
WHAT IS THIS?

IT'S FOR MY ART CLASSES,
MAN.

WHAT, YOU
A GANG-BANGIN' PICASSO?

MAN, I GOTTA EXPRESS
MYSELF.

YOU GONNA BE EXPRESSIN' YOURSELF
FROM RIKERS,

YOU DON'T TELL US
WHERE HE IS.

MAN, HE USED
TO HANG OUT HERE, MAN.

BUT I THINK HE GOT OUT
BEFORE THE BEEF.

WHAT BEEF?

YO, I COULD GET SHOT
FOR TALKING WITH Y'ALL.

YOU'RE LUCKY WE DIDN'T SHOOT YOU
FOR REACHING UP

UNDER YOUR SHIRT--SPEAK.

CAT NAMED JIMMY MAC
STARTED A CREW

IN RIKERS ISLAND
ABOUT FIVE MONTHS AGO.

CALLED
THE CORNER HUSTLERS.

YEAH, RED HAT
WITH THE "C."

IT'S THEIR THING.

WHAT'S JIMMY MAC'S REP?

THAT DUDE'S CRAZY.

HE MAKES HIS CREW RAPE GIRLS
BEFORE THEY CAN ROLL.

WE DON'T NEED THAT KIND
OF HEAT IN MARCY.

SO THE KINGS PUT A PRICE
ON HIS HEAD.

(Cragen)
JIMMY MAC.

AKA JAMES MCDONNELL.

GUY'S A REAL SCUMBAG.

HIS GREATEST HITS
INCLUDE PIMPING, ASSAULT,

AND ROBBERY.

HE'S A REPEAT OFFENDER.

HE CATCHES ONE MORE FELONY,
HE'S GOING AWAY FOR LIFE.

MCDONNELL'S THE LEADER
OF THE CORNER HUSTLERS.

HE COULD'VE ORDERED
AN INITIATION MURDER.

JADON AND EZRA KILLED JULIE
TO GET INTO THE GANG.

JUST FOUND MCDONNELL,
HE WAS AT RIKERS.

WHAT FOR?

JUMPING THE TURNSTILE
AT THE STATION

RIGHT BY THE PARK
WHERE WE FOUND JULIE'S BODY.

HE POSTED BAIL
AN HOUR AGO.

HE SHOULD BE GETTING
TO THE QUEENS BOROUGH PLAZA

ANY MINUTE.

LET'S GO.

(Fin)
CORRECTIONS DUMP JUVIES OFF HERE

LIKE IT'S A SCHOOL BUS STOP.

HELL OF A PLACE
TO START OVER.

HEADS UP.

HERE COMES THE BUS.

YEAH, WE SEE IT.

THERE'S JIMMY MAC.

(Lake over walkie talkie)
WE GOT HIM.

THERE'S NOBODY
AROUND HIM.

(Cragen over walkie talkie)
PICK HIM UP.

[gunshots]

[screaming]

(Lake)
EZRA, STOP!

[grunting]

EZRA, YOU'RE GOING AWAY
FOR A LONG TIME.

STOP!
AAH!

[metallic thud]

(Fin)
HEY, STOP YOUR TRUCK!

HELP!

I CAN'T GET OUT!

(Fin)
HEY, YOU!

HEY, HEY, STOP THE TRUCK!

HEY, STOP THE TRUCK!

YO! YO, HELP!

STOP THE TRUCK!

I DON'T WANNA DIE
LIKE THIS!

YO!
YO, HELP!

YO!

HEY, STOP THE TRUCK!

LET ME OUT!

(Fin)
HEY, SOMEBODY'S IN THERE!

AAH! AAH!

[screaming stops]

WHERE'S MY BROTHER?
WE ASK THE QUESTIONS, PUNK.

JUST TELL ME JADON'S
ALL RIGHT.

I SAID NO QUESTIONS.

DON'T YOU UNDERSTAND
NO MEANS NO?

MAYBE NOT, HIM AND HIS BROTHER
DID RAPE

AND MURDER JULIE DONOVAN.

I HAD NOTHING TO DO
WITH THAT.

YOU JUST A WANNABE
COP-KILLER, HUH?

YOU GOT THINGS
ALL WRONG.

HEY, I DON'T CARE
HOW GOOD YOUR GRADES WERE

OR HOW TOUGH
YOUR LIFE WAS.

YOU THREW IT ALL AWAY
WHEN YOU FIRED ON US.

I WASN'T SHOOTING AT YOU.
OH, REALLY?

THEN WHO WERE YOU
TRYING TO KILL?

J-MAC.

I SWEAR, I WASN'T TRYING
TO HURT ANYONE ELSE.

JUST HIM.

WHY?

DOESN'T MATTER.

GET YOUR HEAD UP,
WE'RE NOT DONE WITH YOU.

BOY'S THE LEADER
OF YOUR GANG,

WHY WOULD YOU
WANNA WHACK HIM?

JADON AND ME ONLY JOINED
CORNER HUSTLERS

IN RIKERS FOR PROTECTION
FROM OTHER GANGS.

J-MAC'S FROM THE SAME PROJECT,
SO WE FIGURED

HE'D LOOK OUT FOR US.

YEAH, A LITTLE CAT LIKE YOU
MUST'VE NEEDED PROTECTION.

WHAT, MCDONNELL
TAKE CARE OF YOU?

YEAH.

TILL ME AND JADON GOT
INTO ISLAND ACADEMY

AND STARTED DOING WELL.

WE GOT SCHOLARSHIPS
TO COLLEGE,

AND MCDONNELL TOLD US
TO SELL DRUGS ON CAMPUS.

SO YOU'RE
A DRUG DEALER TOO.

WE NEVER DID IT.

JADON TOLD HIM
TO GET LOST.

MCDONNELL WENT CRAZY,

AND SAID THE ONLY WAY
WE'RE LEAVING THE GANG

WAS IN A BODY BAG.

BLOOD IN AND BLOOD OUT.

YOU WERE GONNA KILL MCDONNELL

TO GET OUT
OF THE GANG.

I WAS GONNA KILL HIM
'CAUSE HE SET MY BROTHER UP

FOR THAT GIRL'S MURDER.

THEN WHY WAS JULIE'S BLOOD
ON YOUR BROTHER'S BASEBALL CAP?

I DON'T KNOW.

M-MAYBE SHE WORE HIS HAT HOME
FROM THE PARTY.

UGH.

YOU GOTTA BELIEVE ME!
J-MAC KILLED JULIE!

IF J-MAC'S THE KILLER,
I SUPPOSE

WE GOTTA LED JADON GO.

REALLY?

FOR A SMART KID,
YOU'RE REALLY STUPID.

EZRA, JADON CONFESSED.

THAT'S GREAT WORK, GUYS.

THANKS, CAP.

GET YOUR FIVES TYPED
AND OVER TO NOVAK

SO SHE CAN START PREPPING
FOR TRIAL.

I DON'T THINK THOSE BOYS
HAD ANYTHING TO DO

WITH JULIE DONOVAN'S MURDER.

I SWEAR I DIDN'T SEE HIM
SMOKING CRACK.

I THINK THE REAL KILLER DIED
IN THAT GARBAGE TRUCK TODAY.

ONE BROTHER CONFESSED,
AND THE OTHER ONE

TRIED TO SHOOT YOU.

WHAT MORE DO YOU WANT?

JADON AND EZRA HAD
TOO MUCH TO LOSE

BY KILLING THAT GIRL.

THEN WHY WOULD MCDONNELL
WANNA FRAME THEM?

BECAUSE HE'S A PSYCHOPATH.

HE WAS PISSED
THAT THE ODAMI BOYS

WERE LEAVING THE GANG

AND MAKING SOMETHING
OF THEMSELVES.

PIN A MURDER ON THEM?

THEY'RE RIGHT BACK
IN THE GUTTER.

I'M SURE THAT'S WHAT THE DEFENSE
IS GONNA ARGUE,

BUT WE WORK
FOR THE PROSECUTION.

AND IF THEY'RE INNOCENT?

THAT'S FOR THE JURY
TO DECIDE.

THAT'S NOT GOOD ENOUGH
FOR ME.

(Fin)
LET IT GO, CHESTER.

[beeps]

THIS CASE IS CLOSED.

I KNOW YOU'RE AN INSOMNIAC,
BUT YOU OUGHTA GO HOME.

WHY ARE YOU HERE
THIS LATE?

PAPERWORK FOR TRIAL.

YOU GOTTA WATCH YOURSELF.

IF YOU GET TOO OBSESSED
WITH THESE CASES,

YOU'LL LOSE MORE
THAN SLEEP.

LIKE WHAT?

FAMILY.

WHAT, ARE YOU TRYIN' TO BUST
MY CHOPS AGAIN?

I'M DEAD SERIOUS.

THIS JOB NEARLY COST ME MINE.

WELL, I DON'T HAVE TO WORRY
ABOUT THAT.

NO FAMILY?

OR TOO MANY FAMILIES.

DEPENDING ON THE DAY.

YOU A FOSTER KID?

YOU NEED ANY HELP?

YOU WANNA RISK THE CAPTAIN
GETTING PISSED AT YOU?

WOULDN'T BE THE FIRST TIME.

ALL RIGHT.

[sighs]

IN MY GUT,
THESE BOYS ARE INNOCENT.

BUT I DON'T KNOW HOW
TO PROVE IT.

ALL RIGHT.
WELL...

FRESH PAIR OF EYES
NEVER HURT.

[hip-hop music]

*

STOP IT.
WHAT WAS THAT BURST OF LIGHT?

GO BACK.

[hip-hop music]

IT'S A CAMERA FLASH.

SHE LOOK PREGNANT
TO YOU?

YEAH.

WHAT'S SHE DOING
AT A FRAT PARTY?

TAKING PICTURES
OF JULIE?

I NEVER SEEN HER BEFORE.

(Fin)
TAKE A GOOD LOOK AT HER.

I GOT NO IDEA
WHO SHE IS.

I'M TRYING TO HELP YOU.

COME ON, LOOK AT IT!

WHO IS THIS, JADON?

[sighs]

HEY, WATCH YOURSELF.

I'M LOOKING AT LIFE,
SO I'M NOT WORRIED

ABOUT TAKING YOURS.

YOU MIGHT NOT KNOW THIS,

BUT I'M ON YOUR SIDE.

LOOK, DUDE.

MY MOMS, THE STATE,
THE SCHOOLS...

THEY ALL FAILED ME
AND MY BROTHER.

I GOT ABOUT THIS MUCH
LEFT OF ME,

AND I'M GONNA USE IT
TO DO THIS TIME,

SO JUST LEAVE ME ALONE.

I CAME UP
THROUGH THE FOSTER SYSTEM.

AS SOON AS I WAS OLD ENOUGH,
I TOOK THE POLICE EXAM.

I DON'T THINK I'D PASS
THE BACKGROUND CHECK.

WHEN I WAS IN THE ACADEMY,

MY COUSIN AND I
WENT OUT DRINKING.

AND WE GOT IN A FIGHT.

ONE GUY WAS HURT BAD.

MY COUSIN TOLD ME
TO TAKE OFF.

HE KNEW IF I GOT ARRESTED,

I'D GET KICKED OFF
THE JOB.

WHAT'S THIS BEDTIME STORY
GOTTA DO WITH ME?

HE TOOK THE COLLAR FOR ME,
SO I COULD HAVE A SHOT.

YOU DID THE SAME THING
FOR YOUR BROTHER.

AND IF I DID,
WHY WOULD I GIVE HIM UP TO YOU?

BECAUSE EZRA DIDN'T DO IT.

IT WAS MCDONNELL, JADON.

HE SET YOU UP.

I WANNA SEE EZRA.

WHO BEAT YOU UP?

DOESN'T MATTER.
I CAN HANDLE IT.

NO, YOU CAN'T!
LOOK, WHY IS HE HERE?

I SAID I DID IT,
GET HIM OUT OF HERE!

I KNOW YOU DIDN'T--
DUDE, WHY YOU SAYING YOU DID?

SHUT UP!

HOW COULD YOU THINK
I DID IT?

[heavy breathing]

BECAUSE...

I-I CAME BACK TO THE ROOM
TWO HOURS LATER,

AND YOU WEREN'T THERE.

WHEN THE COPS GOT MY DNA
OFF THE HAT JULIE TOOK,

I FIGURED IT WAS
A LUCKY BREAK.

BETTER ME THAN YOU.

SO I CONFESSED.

WHY?

EVERY TIME I PASSED THAT FLAG
IN THE LIVING ROOM,

AND LISTEN TO THOSE RICH KIDS
BITCH ABOUT THEIR PERFECT LIVES,

I WANTED TO START KNOCKING
DUDES OUT.

MAYBE IT'S BETTER I'M LOCKED UP

BEFORE I DO
SOMETHING I REGRET.

YOU DON'T BELONG
IN PRISON.

(Lake)
WHO IS THIS?

LOOK, I WASN'T LYING,
I DON'T KNOW HER.

(Fin)
YOU CONFESSED TO MURDER.

YOU'RE GETTING SENTENCED
TOMORROW.

SHE MAY BE ABLE TO FINGER
MCDONNELL.

IF WE DON'T FIND HER TONIGHT,

YOU'RE GOING DOWN
FOR LIFE.

I THINK I'VE SEEN HER
AROUND MARCY.

(Lake)
WHAT'S HER NAME?

NO IDEA.

WE GOTTA FIND SOMEBODY IN
THE PROJECTS WHO CAN I.D. HER.

I THINK I KNOW SOMEONE
WHO'LL TALK TO US.

[knocking]

JANELLE, OPEN UP.

IT'S 2:00 P.M.
TUESDAY AFTERNOON.

I DIDN'T MEAN TO INTERRUPT
YOUR BEAUTY SLEEP.

I BEEN WORKING NIGHTS.

(Lake)
WE KNOW.

CLEANING OFFICES.

BY THE GRACE OF GOD
AND NARCOTICS ANONYMOUS,

I GOT NINE DAYS CLEAN
AND SOBER.

WELL, THAT'S GOOD.

DO YOU KNOW HER?

I DON'T KNOW NOTHING,
I AIN'T SEEN NOTHING.

SO I CAN'T TELL YOU NOTHING.

WHAT KIND
OF PIECE OF TRASH MOTHER

LETS HER KIDS GET TAKEN AWAY
OVER AND OVER AGAIN,

THEN WHEN SHE FINALLY GETS
A CHANCE TO HELP 'EM,

SHE TURNS HER BACK?

DON'T YOU DARE TALK TO ME
LIKE YOU KNOW

WHAT I'VE BEEN THROUGH.

EVERY TIME CHILDREN'S SERVICES
SNATCHED MY BOYS,

IT TOOK ALL I HAD
NOT TO KILL MYSELF

THE SECOND THE DOOR SHUT
BEHIND THEM.

IF YOU REALLY CARE
ABOUT YOUR BOYS,

YOU'LL TELL US
WHO THIS GIRL IS.

JADON'S IN FOR MURDER.

EZRA'S BEING CHARGED
FOR ATTEMPTED MURDER OF A COP.

TELL US WHO THIS GIRL IS,

RIGHT NOW, OR YOUR BOYS
WILL NEVER SEE DAYLIGHT AGAIN.

YOU STOLE THE FIRST HALF
OF THEIR LIVES,

GIVE THEM BACK
THE REST.

WHEN I GET 90 DAYS
CLEAN AND SOBER,

I'M GONNA SURPRISE
JADON AND EZRA

AND TAKE 'EM TO RED LOBSTER.

HER NAME IS LATRICE MUNEZ.

SHE LIVES IN THE BUILDING
RIGHT BEHIND THIS ONE.

UNIT 412.

YEAH, I'M JIMMY MAC'S
BOTTOM BITCH.

MCDONNELL WAS PIMPING YOU OUT
AS HIS NUMBER ONE GIRL

WITH WHAT YOU'RE CARRYING?

YOU'RE DAMN RIGHT.

SHOOT, I STILL GOT IT.

[sighs]

TELL US ABOUT JULIE.

SHE THOUGHT BEING A HO
WAS MAD FUN.

LIKE BEING ONE OF THEM
RAP VIDEO HOS,

OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT.

HOW'D YOU MEET UP WITH
A WHITE GIRL FROM LONG ISLAND?

AT THE FIGHTS.

SHE GOT OFF WATCHING DUDES
POUNDING EACH OTHER.

SO I HELPED J-MAC
TURN HER OUT.

WHY DID YOU TAKE A PICTURE
OF HER AT THE FRAT PARTY?

MCDONNELL WANTED PHOTOS
OF HER

HAVING SEX WITH JADON
AND EZRA.

FOR PROOF
HE WASN'T GETTING GEORGIA'D.

LOOK AT YOU THROWING
AROUND GAME, PAPI.

ACTING LIKE YOU KNOW
YOUR THANG.

LITTLE GIRL,
I WAS THROUGH WITH IT

BEFORE YOU KNEW
WHAT TO DO WITH IT.

ENLIGHTEN ME.

A PIMP HAS SEX
WITH A NEW GIRL

BEFORE SHE
ACTUALLY TURNS A TRICK,

IT'S CALLED
GETTING GEORGIA'D.

IT'S LIKE THE PIMP
GOT PLAYED.

MCDONNELL WANTED TO MAKE SURE
THAT JULIE DID WHAT HE SAID.

SO HE MADE ME TAKE
THE PICTURES.

I PICKED UP JULIE
AT HER PLACE.

THIS WAS WHEN WE WAS LEAVING
FOR THE PARTY.

SHE WAS
REALLY FEELING EZRA TOO.

SHE WAS ALL UP ON HIM
THAT NIGHT.

SHE WAS SUPPOSED TO DO
BOTH BROTHERS,

AND THEN SAY
THAT THEY RAPED HER.

J-MAC WAS GONNA BLACKMAIL THEM
FOR THEIR TUITION CHECKS.

(Fin)
WHY'D HE BEAT HER?

AFTER SHE HAD SEX WITH EZRA,
WE BOUNCED.

JULIE TOLD J-MAC
THAT SHE WASN'T GONNA SAY

THAT THEY RAPED HER.

HE JUST STARTED BEATING ON HER
LIKE SOME TYPE OF ANIMAL,

OR SOMETHING, YOU KNOW?

I NEVER SEEN HIM
LIKE THAT BEFORE.

SO I JUST TOOK
THE PICTURES.

WHY?

INSURANCE.

SO HE'D NEVER COME AT ME
LIKE THAT.

NEVER.

GET JADON DOWN TO COURT,
AND I'LL HAVE HIM

WITHDRAW HIS PLEA.

WHAT ABOUT EZRA?

I'LL DROP
THE ATTEMPTED MURDER CHARGE

BECAUSE HE
WASN'T SHOOTING AT YOU.

BUT THERE'S NOTHING I CAN DO
ABOUT THE GUN POSSESSION.

ABOUT THE GUN...

IT GOT LOST IN TRANSPORT
FROM THE SCENE.

WITHOUT THE EVIDENCE,

I'LL HAVE TO DROP
THE GUN CHARGE TOO.

JUST MAKE SURE THEY'RE BOTH
IN COURT AT THE SAME TIME.

STUFF HAPPENS.

HEY.

THANKS AGAIN.

HEY, NO PROBLEM.

I TALKED TO THE DEAN,
YOU GUYS ARE BACK IN SCHOOL.

[exhales]

SO THAT'S THE BIG SURPRISE?

NO.

I HAVE ANOTHER ONE.

[knocking]

[R&B music]

*

[melancholy music]

*

[cell phone ringing]

HEY, FIN.

WHERE THE HELL ARE YOU?
WE'VE BEEN WAITING.

I'LL TELL 'EM.

HEY, COME ON, MAN.

YOU GONNA TELL US
WHAT THE SURPRISE IS, OR WHAT?

I'M TAKING YOU GUYS
TO RED LOBSTER.

COME ON.
