Power (2014–…): Season 3, Episode 5 - Help Me - full transcript

The AUSA forces Viberos to collaborate but an unexpected ally appears to avoid his predicament. Ghost is facing an awkward moment but suddenly he is out of the clear. Tommy does something unexpected and he joins forces again with Ghost.

GHOST: Previously on Power...

Agent Greg Knox has
caught us a very big fish.

KNOX: I found Vibora Ruiz.

He's agreed to testify against Lobos.

TASHA: Why would you
bring a gun to school?

Shawn got shot so I
thought, it could happen to me too.

Dad, you're not here to
protect nobody no more.

ANGELA: I'm sorry about the gun.

Maybe we pushed the kid thing too fast.

Maybe I should hang out with
the kids alone for a while.

TASHA: You got no clue what
you're getting yourself into.

HOLLY: I haven't
decided if I'm keeping it yet.

I really love Tommy, and
I want to be a family.

I just...

Tommy doesn't know?

[Machine gun fire]

Who did this to you?

It was Lobos.

HOLLY: Don't worry, baby.

Everything's gonna be all right.

Who's the target?

James St. Patrick.

You okay?

This shit last night, I
can't make sense of it.

Tommy, you know who it was.

It was Lobos.

Yeah, I thought that,

but it don't track

that he'd want to cut off his money.

Who else would it be, then?

Lobos told you he wanted Ghost dead.

He doesn't sound like the
type of guy to wait forever.

What do you think Lobos is gonna do

when he learns you're still alive?

He's gonna send
somebody to finish the job.

And that includes me,
just like it did Bell.

Tommy, we can do this.

Me. You.


We can kill Ghost.

[Phone buzzes]


Don't answer that.

We are not leaving this apartment

until we find a way to
kill him once and for all.

We have to save ourselves.

Angie, what's wrong?

We love each other.

Everything's gonna work out.

That's what matters.

That's not all that matters.


There's just so many
obstacles between us.


What obstacles are you talking about?

Tariq hates me,

and Paz hates you.

And then there's your wife.

You're still married to Tasha.

[Phone buzzing]

I got to get going.

We can talk about this later tonight.

Like... like a magic show.

No, no, no, eh?

You control Ruiz, but
if he becomes a problem,

I'm gonna have to tell
Hugo to kill somebody else.

[Indistinct conversation]

You know what? Why
don't you, uh, go ahead?

I'll be in there in two minutes, okay?


James, can I call you back?

I need you to look into
something for me.

Tasha and I were
already living apart, so I think

a separation
agreement's the next logical step.

Oh, so Miss Valdes is
putting the screws to you, huh?

But you sure you
want to formally separate?

Spousal privileges can be tricky.

What does Tasha know?

I said a separation, not
a divorce, Proctor,

not yet, but she wouldn't hurt the kids

or our bank account by
sending me to jail.

She told me that herself.

So look, if I send you the specifics,

can you bring the
papers by Truth later today?

You got a guy, right?

Yeah, I'll see what my guy can do,

and I'll call you later, okay?

GHOST: You do that. Later.

A.U.S.A. Angela Valdes.

This is unexpected.

You don't have to do this.

I think I do.

It's a pretty rough neighborhood.

You know that.

Listen, we both know why you
went off and found Ruiz.

You want him to try and
prove this theory of yours

about Jamie being Ghost.

Why isn't putting Lobos
in prison enough for you?

Why is it enough for you?

It never would have been before.

What happened to you?

You used to be one of the good guys.

So did you.

You keep trying to force
Jamie into this prosecution,

but it's not gonna work, and
it could cost us Lobos.

You love the guy?

No matter what he does,

no matter what you learn he really is,

you just can't let go.

I get it.

Aren't you tired of
lying for him, though?

I'm tired of fighting you.

You hate me. You can't forgive me, fine.

But don't screw up
this case because of me.

Don't screw up this
case because of him, Angela.

See you at work?

[Clears throat]


Yeah, I'm almost done.

I know; we have to leave.

Change of plans.

You're gonna get to
spend the day with your father.

- What?
- Yeah.

Do I have to?

Tariq, sweetheart, this is a good thing.

You two can spend some
quality time together.

What, Angela too busy?

Watch it, boy, okay?

What is going on? Come on.

I don't know.

It's just like nothing's
the same with him anymore.

Everything's just different.

He's different.

Tariq, this is...

This is where we are now.

I know things don't look like
the way you want them to,

but your dad is trying, okay?

He wouldn't want to
spend the day with you

if he wasn't, right?

The least you can do is try too.

All right, if you're saying
that I have to, then I will.

It's not that I wanted to, though,

'cause I don't.

Ruiz and his lawyers seen
the proffer agreement?

Received it this morning,

expecting to have it
signed this afternoon

after we've got Ruiz on record.

All we need from him

is to corroborate his
meeting with Lobos.

This would be the same meeting

that DEA Agent Juan Julio
Medina witnessed while undercover?

- Correct.
- Looks good, Valdes.

I don't know, sir. Is... is
this the best we can do?

How do you mean, Agent Knox?

I Just...

You know, while we've got the snake,

why not squeeze him for
every last drop of venom

he's got, right?

That way, instead of
hoping to just go to trial,

we can bury Lobos under
the fucking jail.


SAXE: Are you suggesting we ask Ruiz

to give up Lobos'
whole New York organization?

Yes, yes.

Places, product, and names.

COLLINS: It might not be the worst idea,

but would he go for it?

I'm not sure he will, sir.

ANGELA: We'll have everything we need

with the corroboration from
Ruiz about his meeting with Lobos.

Everything else is inconsequential.

True, but Ruiz doesn't know that.

ANGELA: If we change strategy midstream,

it'll upset Ruiz and his attorney.

It's not what they agreed to.

We could end up with nothing.

We could indict Ruiz on his own crimes

if he forces our hand.

Let's use Greg's approach.

All right, Saxe, adjust the agreement.

If Ruiz fingers Lobos, great,

but if we can roll up the
whole bunch, why not?

I've got a meeting.

I'll expect a report.

KNOX: Of course, sir.

This can't be that complicated.

Why don't you just walk up to him

and put a bullet in his head?

Because this isn't the fucking movies.

If I do it in broad day like that,

somebody's gonna see me for sure,

and then I'm locked up in a cage upstate

in two seconds flat.

[Pounding on door]

Ma, what the fuck are you doing here?

I didn't have a fucking choice.

The mortgage is past due.


What the hell happened to you?


Look, there must have
been some sort of mix-up.

I'll call Tasha and have
her bring some checks over.

Hey, whoever did this
to you, you and James

are gonna take care of this, right?

No, Ma, fuck Ghost.

Told you I don't want
nothing to do with him.

Who the hell is this?

Ma, this Holly.

You must be Tommy's mother.


I'm Holly, his girlfriend.

Is that my mother's ring?

Yeah, I bought it out of hock,

where you put it, and
then I gave it to her.

Look, Ma, Holly and I
got a lot to do today.

As soon as Tasha brings the checks over,

I'll bring them by, okay?

Don't worry about it.

I'm not worried about it,

'cause I'm not leaving until I get them.

Besides, I want to
get to know Haley...

- Holly.
- Holly, right.

See? We need to get to
know each other better.

[Hip-hop music playing]

For you, son.

For the game tonight?

Well, I planned on giving you those

before you took Angela's
gun, so what was once a gift

is something that you're
now gonna have to earn.

Putting you to work today.


Yo, James.

Andre, good morning.

Hey, man, we need
to rap real quick...

Meet my son, Tariq. Tariq, Andre.

What's up, dog?

Just need to talk to
your father real quick.

We can do that later.

Look, a delivery just got here.

I figured you could use some
extra hands for the day.

Tariq could use a crash
course in the club,

so he's your assistant for the day.


You mind showing him the ropes?

- Okay.
- Cool.

You, pay attention.

[Andre mumbling]

Look folks, we got
to clear this hallway.

Thank you.

Charlie, what the hell's going on?

There's some
high-valued federal witness

being moved through.

All nonessential
personnel leaving the area.

Charlie, hold the elevator.

- Sir.
- What the fuck?

[Phone buzzes]

Miss Valdes, I'm
glad I caught up with you.

Uh, now that we're gonna have
Ruiz's testimony against Lobos,

I think you should
start pre-trial motions.

Jury selection on a guy like this

is gonna be a bitch.

We should think about wealthy
widows with no kids.

No reason to take a bribe, right?

Walk with me, okay?

There's a whole bunch of things...

I want it on the record
that conducting this here

rather than the safety of
my client's original location

wasn't lost on us.

Oh, well, uh, let me be the first

to apologize for the
terrible inconvenience, Mr. Ruiz.

We should have known we
couldn't pull a fast one on you.

I've seen this little intimidation game

you're playing before
done better by better.

So can we just get to why I'm here?


I came here to talk about
what happened with Lobos,

nothing more.

You people have a lot of nerve.

Hold on. Your client's not under arrest.

He could walk out and
back to his old life,

but, Vibora, you
know what's awaiting you.

Enemies trying to kill
you, feds looking to bust you.

Or you say yes

and we protect you and your business

as long as you work with
us as a criminal informant.


Let me get this straight.

So you risk my client's life

by marching him through this building

where anyone can see
him dealing with the feds,

and then you tell him he should snitch

on his whole organization,

everyone he knows, in
order to stay safe?

I don't know if this is incompetence
or extortion,

but either way, it's
not what we were promised.

Can you leave me alone with my client?

I don't know if or when we'll
be willing to talk again.

Leave us alone.

I thought you got Vibora Ruiz

to leave town and stay that way.

I did.

Well, I just saw him at the
fucking federal building.

Ruiz got arrested?

Oh, it didn't look like an arrest,

and he was with your girlfriend, Angela.

- She didn't tell me.
- Yeah...

I'm over there, and they start

clearing everybody out for
a... a high-value federal witness,

and in walks Ruiz.

So he's gonna snitch,

but the question is, on who?

[Sighs] God.

You sure he's gonna be loyal?

Now, I'm gonna take that
face you're making as a no.

Look, with Ruiz in play,

everything he knows is
potentially on the table.


That could be bad for Lobos

but worse for you.

Angela didn't warn you at all?

- No.
- Huh.

I know you've been
adamant about not using her,

but, James, it's obvious that
she doesn't have your back.



I got the separation
papers you asked for.

You sure you still want them?

So why you ain't in school, man?

Got suspended.

You got suspended?

What happened... you
was yelling too loud

at a lacrosse game or something?

It's that bad, huh?

Just thought, I mean, your
pops had money so...

Yeah, don't even trip
on it, little homey.

Everybody been there.

You got in trouble at school too?

Hell, yeah.

I don't know nobody in the
hood didn't get in trouble.

So how did you get here?

To be real with you, um,

I had my daughter.

You know, the best thing that
ever happened to me, man.

Didn't want her to grow
up the same way I grew up

or, uh, you had... your dad had to.

Wait, so you grew up
where my pop grew up?


Did you know his driver, Shawn?

Yeah, you know, um...

I met him a few times.

He was a good kid.

Yeah, that was my friend, but he died.

My dad, he... he
didn't even care.

Oh, nah, nah.

Trust me; your pops cared.

I was with him when he
found out about Shawn.

He took that real hard, man.


Yes, very.

[Water running]

[Door opens]

Tommy, I could use
a little pick-me-up.

So how'd you two meet?

Uh, I was a waitress at Truth.

Oh, so you fucked the boss.

That's always the way to go

when you don't want to work anymore.


What, are you gonna stand like a statue,

or are you gonna join in?

Actually, I'm okay.

Oh, little Miss Bottle Service

is too good for it, huh?

Yeah, Hol, it's the good stuff.

Come on.

[Pounding at door]

What's up, Tash?

Hey, what's up?

All right, so I brought
the stuff you were look...


I'm glad to see the
family's all together.


It's so good to see you.

Oh! Good to see you.

Goodness, Kate, I thought you quit.

Oh, a little in the
morning never hurt, right, Tommy?

TOMMY: Right.

So how's everything? How's Jamie?

Honestly, I can't say

I see very much of
him anymore, Ms. Egan.

Ghost moved out.

Yeah. Ma, I told you.

Oh, oh, right.

He's messing around with
that girl he knew

from high school, Angela Valdes?

- Mm-mmm.
- That's still going on?

I thought he'd be over that by now.


Ah, yeah, I'm in a rush.

So you said you needed these?

Oh, yeah, yeah.

Why don't you sign it?

TOMMY: Johnny Hancock.

There we go. That should do it.

- Okay.
- TASHA: Thank you.

All right, I'll walk you out.

No, no, no, I'm too
hungry to go anymore.

Got any food, Tommy?

Hungry? No, I don't have any food.

KATE: Why the hell don't
you have any food?

She does blow with her son?

Yeah, well, this is Kate on
good behavior, actually.

- Jesus.
- Mm-hmm, I told you about her.

Wait until Tommy tells
her about the baby.


Fuck, you haven't told him yet?

I'm... I'm sorry she brought
up the whole Ghost thing.

Is he with Angela today?

No, he's at the club planning
some damn party,

as usual.

Look, I'm gonna slip
out before she gets back.

Bye, Tommy! Bye, Kate!

KATE: Bye, Tasha.

What the fuck happened

to the deal you offered
me in California?

Still got a chance to
get the deal. It's fine.

They're just... they're
gonna need

a little more from you
than Lobos; that's all.

And like I said, you want Lobos,

I will give him to you,

but anything beyond
that is on you people.

As soon as Nunez returns,

I'm taking my
information, and I'm leaving.

I'd strongly advise against that.

You would, huh?

Why is that?

'Cause I know you ordered the
murder of Nomar Arcielo,

and I know you had Tommy Egan do it.

You don't know what
you're talking about.

I didn't kill anyone,

and I don't even know who that is.

Yes, you do.

And with Nomar, sick fuck,

being a federal informant,

means you got the death penalty

staring you in the face, Ruiz.

You don't have to say anything.

You know what?

You said enough on the voice recordings

Nomar got for us by wearing a wire.

My... well, my
personal favorite was the one

where Tommy Egan came and checked on you

following your stabbing.

That's very sweet.

What do you want?

What I need is the chain of command.

You're gonna give
me the chain of command

of who was between you and Lobos.

You give me the identity of Ghost,

you're gonna get the deal,

and you and I'll never
have to see each other again.

[Hip-hop music blaring]

[Music stops]

Much obliged.

I wanted to apologize.

Apparently, we lost
eyes on you inside the club

and were unable to tail you.

It was a long night, Dean. Loud music.

I just wanted to get out of
there without an entourage.

That's it.

Is, uh, that gonna be a trend?

I ask because the
manpower needed to properly secure

your three clubs comes on
top of their time securing you.

Well, actually, being that I'm paying,

it's my time, isn't it?

That's true.

Which at this point, I
think I may no longer need,

seeing as though you said no
one has been following me.

Well, we still
need to be sure...

Then it's settled.

You and your men just
stay on the clubs only

moving forward

and cease following
me in my personal life.

Okay, if that's what you want.

Is that your son?

GHOST: Yeah, his name is Tariq.

He's a good-looking boy.

Son you learning anything at the club?

Yeah, I guess.

[Music blaring]

[Music stops]

I joined the Twitter.

[Chuckles] "The Twitter."

Yeah. I got a lot of images there.

Check them out.

Tell me if I'm doing all right.

Yeah, that's some good
pictures, but it's not "The Twitter."

It's just Twitter.

You should join
Instagram and Snapchat too.

You're pretty much on
top of this stuff, huh?


You're a smart kid, Tariq,

smarter than I ever was,

which is why I work so hard

to provide opportunities
for you that I never had.

It's also why I'm a little confused

by your actions lately, son.

What's going on, man?

Come on, 'Riq. Talk to me.

It's just me and you here.

No principal, not your mother.

Just you and your father.

Why would you
really go in Angela's purse

and take a gun?

Somebody bothering you at
school I should know about?


Is it what's going on between
me and your moms?

Because we told you,

no matter what happens, it
will never change the way

we feel about you and your sisters.

I was just angry.

You move out,

you make us meet Angela,
and you move in with her,

and you don't even talk to us about it.

Like, what kind of father does that?

A real man apologizes

when he's done something wrong.

I guess the way I
handled all of that was wrong.

I'm sorry.

Sorry, son.

All right.


Mike, you okay?

Yeah, yeah, I'm fine.

I just really want to nail this fucker.

Nunez called. He's on his way back.

Ruiz wants to talk.

Son of a bitch
finally came to his senses.

Once we have Ruiz's agreement in place,

we got Lobos by the balls.

I want Ruiz
transferred and locked down in D.C.

until he testifies.

I'll get right on it, sir.

Wow, we finally get
Lobos and now everybody else

who worked for him in
our jurisdiction, huh?

I'll be right back.

What the fuck did you do?

ANGELA: Jamie.

You asked me before, if
things ever got serious,

would I tell you if you need a lawyer?

Well, I think you need to get one.

I see.

Were you gonna tell me about Ruiz?

How do you know about that?

Is he in town to testify against
Tommy, Lobos, me, what?

I'm trying to figure it out here.

How do you know about Ruiz?

Not from you, and that's what matters.

This is the obstacle that
you were talking about?

I mean, you know why he's
a problem today, right?

Ruiz is a problem today because of you

and what you did with
his daughter Isabel.

See, I got rid of him.

I got him to leave, vanish even,

to help you so you could help me.

I have helped you, more
than I should have.

You have to trust me.

I have trusted you...

before now.

Now I don't know.

Angela, I really don't want to,

but if I have to, I'll fix it myself.

But don't... don't make me.

Just... just
help me.

Just help me.

I used to be a good prosecutor.

And I'm trying to be a good man,

for you.

[Phone buzzes]

That's my office.

I got to go.

Nana, Dada's home.

[Girl babbles]

I'm coming, baby.

GIRL: Da, da.

I'm coming. I'm coming.

She's lucky she didn't
even get your nose.

GIRL: Do, do, do, do.

KANAN: Do, do, do.

Told your girl I'll
look after little mama.

Yes, I did. That's
what I told your mama.

You failed me, Dre.

You picked Ghost over me.

No, no, I didn't.

Look, look, just put... just
put my daughter down, please.

Shh. I don't want to hear it.

You got one job, one.

Now you standing there

like you're gonna have to shit yourself.

- [Girl crying]
- Oh, what's the matter?

Baby, it's okay, baby. It's okay.

Look, look, look, y-you
know, you don't understand.

Ghost... Ghost... Ghost... trust me.

Fly, fly. Fly, baby? Fly, baby?

Look, look, look, look,
look! Wait, wait, wait, wait!

I promise you. I promise
you. I promise you. Please.

I'm right where you want me to be.

I mean, I just spent the whole
day with his kid, man.

I just... trust
me, bro.

I promise you I'm right
where you want me to be.

[Girl crying]

It's gonna be okay, baby.

Come on. Come on.

Go on to Daddy.

It's gonna be okay, baby. It's all over.

Shh, shh, shh, shh, shh, shh, shh.

I'll need you soon
enough, so stay ready.

Hey, this place... this
place is really nice, man.

You're doing real good.

You didn't have
shit when I met you, boy.

[Girl crying]

It's okay. It's okay.
It's okay. It's okay.

I already told your friend

that I was gonna talk, Miss...

A.U.S.A. Angela Valdes.

Angela Valdes.


If getting your
deal is important to you,

the easier you make our job,

the better it is for you.

The best way for you to do
that is in the proffer session.

Stick only to your meeting with Lobos.

Only to my meeting with Lobos?

What the hell is going on here?

First you people tell me

you want me to say
everything, and then...

Your friend told me that
I have to snitch on Ghost

because of Nomar, or
else I get the death penalty.

I have no choice.

I don't know who said what,

but I wouldn't be
concerned about that right now.

Wouldn't be concerned.

You have me on tape. Conversations.

If we were going to take you to trial

for the murder of
Nomar, your motive would be

that he was fucking your
14-year-old daughter.

What he did with her was terrible,

and no jury in the land would
convict you of that.

My boss wants Lobos.

Just give us him, nothing else.

Ghost saved your life.

Vladimir, Drifty.

HOLLY: You told me she was gonna leave

as soon as she got checks.

We are running out of time.

You got to do something, Tommy.

Step up.

All right. Jesus, get the fuck off.

KATE: Would have done
more, but this is all you had.

Somebody ought to do some shopping.

Come on, Ma.

KATE: Wow, is this mood you're in

because of what's going
on between you and James?

You always act like
this when you two fight.

But Jamie has always shown up for you.

He ever tell you about the time

these two boys jumped him?

We lived in a black neighborhood.

Called him all kinds of
names for being white.

James found those boys.

Gave them what they had coming to them.

They never bothered Tommy again.

No one did, as a matter of fact.

[Pounding at door]

- Hello, J.
- Yo.

KATE: Hey, Tommy, who's your friend?

Tall shot of tequila, isn't he?

- Hola.
- Talk to me.

All right, so I made the rounds.

We're good to go. We
might have a problem.


Our dumb-ass Asian friend, Dylan,

he just got wet up.

- What?
- Yeah.

Him and his whole crew got taken out.


He was a fucking piece of shit,

but we can't let
motherfuckers fuck with our people,

so get strapped up.


Where did it happen?

Outside some church in Hell's Kitchen.

This happen last night?

- Yeah.
- Hmm.

Any word on who took them out?

No, man, as far as I know, I
haven't heard or seen shit.

All right, don't make no moves.

- Huh?
- Yet.

You bet.

It's time for you to go, Ma.

I'll drive you to the train.

Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.

Nice to meet you.

Yeah, nice to meet you, Kate.


[Whispers] Get rid of her.

Hey, Holly's my girl.

I love her.

Oh, you sound like such an idiot.

Yo, why don't you
fucking play nice, all right?

- Could I ask you something?
- Yeah.

That shit you were saying about Ghost,

you really believe that?

Of course I do.

He's as much my son as you are.

I think you believe it too.

All right, baby, I'll see you later.

Did you meet with Felipe
Lobos at the Torres Fight Club?

What was the nature of that meeting?

Lobos was unhappy with
his drug distributor.

I offered my services.

SAXE: Uh, what was his response?

Did he deny being a drug dealer?


He did decline my services, though.

I believe he said we
were too low-rent for him.

You said Lobos was
unhappy with his distributor.

Do you know his name?

RUIZ: Yes.


That's the street name.

Do you know his real name?


You're saying that you
don't know the identity of Ghost.

My client answered the
question, Mr. Saxe.

What you... you

Wh-What about the
plan you two took part in

to murder a criminal informant of ours,

Mr. Nomar Arcielo, huh?

See, we have your client on
tape in commission with Ghost.

We know you know his
real name, Mr. Ruiz.

If you refuse to tell
us, we're gonna have

to give you the death
penalty for Nomar Arcielo's murder.

You can't prove my client knew

Mr. Arcielo was a criminal informant.

Even if my client were
guilty of that murder,

his motive is clear.

Nomar Arcielo was having sex

with his 14-year-old daughter.

It's the easiest affirmative
defense argument

in history.

My client's willing to
give up Lobos, that's it.

- Okay...
- We'll take Lobos.

We're done here.

Sign it.

It's a federal
agreement stating that in exchange

for a reduced
sentence, you'll go on record

with information of Diego Jimenez,

leader of the Jimenez Cartels.

If you do it, it means we're required

to transfer you from this
facility to Teterboro,

where you'll be flown to
D.C. for witness prep.

It's up to you whether
you make it to Teterboro

while still in federal custody.

Ah. Hoo-hoo-hoo.

Once I have all the info,

you can contact your associates
on the outside

to make arrangements.

See you soon coquito.

[Door opens and closes]


It all makes fucking sense now.

It wasn't Lobos who
was trying to kill me.

It was Dylan and the fucking Koreans.

HOLLY: Wait, Julio told you this?

Yeah, and I bet you it was Ghost

who shot those motherfuckers.

It had to be. Where
the fuck is my phone?

Maybe it wasn't Lobos,

but that doesn't change the
fact that he wants Ghost dead,

and he's gonna kill
us if we don't do it.

That's why I got to talk to Ghost.

I got to sit down with him,

sort this shit out once and for all.

I'll be back.

Tommy, don't. Please.

I don't want you to get hurt.

Holly, what you mean?

Why would I get hurt?

GHOST: Who got courtside
tickets to the game, man?

TARIQ: You know we do.

Yeah, man, it should be fun.

I still like Nas better.


You like Nas batter?

Oh, come on, man.

I-I got something for you to listen to.

Then play it.

Don't you say that.

Don't you fucking say that.

No, no, no, no, no, no.

Holly, get out of here.

Get the fuck out of here right now!

I saved both our lives,

you, you still care about him?

He sent you to jail!

He took away your business.

Everything he did to me, to us.

We were supposed to
protect each other, Tommy.

It was supposed to be about you and me.

So you had him fucking killed?

Huh? Behind my fucking back?

Whatever it is between
you and Ghost, Tommy,

it's not normal.

It's not fucking normal the way you are.

You fucking bitch. You

An unexpected
development has presented itself,

one that I must seize.

Pretty soon, I will be
able to spread my wings again.

But before that happens, I
need your help opening the cage.

So listen carefully.

I have a job for you.


I'll make sure all the
parties are notified. Thanks.

Valdes, I need you to
get this paperwork started.

Transfer papers for Ruiz?

No, Felipe Lobos.

Lobos's attorney got
word of Ruiz's deal,

and that was enough.

Lobos finally cracked and
agreed to give up the Jimenez cartel.

It was too much for D.C. to pass up.

They want him transferred right away.

I need those filed tonight.

Angela, this is a good thing.

We're still putting Lobos away,

plus another big fish.

It's good.

You don't have to worry about Ruiz...

or Lobos, for that matter.

You're safe.

Lobos agreed to turn
witness against the Jimenez cartel.

He'll be transferred out
of state any day now.

The Lobos case is over.

You asked me to help you.


Has no one ever helped you before?

Not like this.

Not like you.

I know you feel like

you've compromised a lot for me, so...
