Patrick talks to Kim and keeps on bugging about her not admitting to seeing a shrink, because he can tell that she’s seen a shrink. It then cuts to Teresa, Cho, Kim and Patrick at the scene of a crime; they’re thinking about what could of happened in the room all of them except Patrick. Patrick notices a mirror on the wall and asks why it’s so high up on the wall. Kim is talking to members of the FBI with Patrick; they’re going over the Gulf Coast Ring and the gang that runs drugs. They believe that Mr. X is an intelligent business man and he’ll be difficult to deal with. Patrick says it’s odd that they find that Mr. X is disciplined, because he believes that Mr. X is the opposite for shooting five DEA agents. They’re briefed on Paco who’s got ties to the Colombian drug cartel. Patrick notices another picture and asks for who’s in it, the FBI agents tell him about the man; but Patrick was actually asking about the women and wants to meet her.

Crystal says he’s pretty good for a guy who’s been out of the game for a while, Crystal asks about his wedding ring; but he dodges the question. Kim finds Teresa at a bar, Teresa asks Kim about Patrick’s date. Two guys buy Kim and Teresa a drink at the bar; it looks like Kim and Teresa aren’t too thrilled about the idea.

They missed him by a couple of minutes. Patrick drives Crystal back to her place; she thanks him for the ride and asks her if he can walk her to the door. Crystal says not this time, but maybe next time he can; Patrick says that he’ll call Crystal tomorrow; she gets out of the car and walks into her house. Crystal walks in and finds Paco in her living room; she asks why he’s in her house. Paco believes that Crystal sent the FBI to his condo, Crystal tries to play dumb; but Paco doesn’t buy it. Paco threatens Crystal, but Crystal is one tough woman and seems to be in charge of things. Crystal asks Paco why she’d talk to the FBI; Paco doesn’t want her to take him out because it’ll apparently complicate things. Crystal says that the FBI think Paco killed the five DEA agents.

The cops walk in and find Paco dead on the ground. Cho looks at Paco then at the window, he walks outside and looks at the open window from the outside.
