The Rat. Is this supposed to be a surprise to anybody? The rat pulls his "emergency gun" from its hidden place inside the station. He makes a phone call to Donadoni. "Johnny?" he asks. "Yeah, who's this?" "Vince." I love that suddenly nobody has Caller ID, that nobody recognizes each other's voices, that Manzani has perfect reception here inside the station, and that somehow we're supposed to be surprised that Manzani's the rat. The only real question I have is, why did he just go and pull his gun when nobody thinks he's the rat? Manzani tells Donadoni to get on his plane and get out of town because the Feds are coming. "Are you serious?" "Donadoni" asks. He then asks if Manzani's stupid, or just has the largest "stones" in the force. He asks why Manzani would make the call from inside the police station when he's seconds away from being outside, since the lockdown is over. Good question, Ramos. It doesn't make it less implausible just because you've drawn attention to it. Why does he have his gun drawn? Why is he checking all the locked doors? Why do you have him trapped in a hallway to begin with? Why not just arrest him and then tell him everything afterward instead of creating a situation where he could potentially shoot everybody? And if you know it's the rat, and you're about to do this takedown, why not give everyone back their weapons? Why have four cops without guns slowly walk toward the one man who does have a gun? That's stupid. Ramos uses the word "mook" here again. What's up with the "mook"s All it does is make me think of the "Moops," and then I start thinking about how much I miss Seinfeld. What is the deal with this shakedown? They intercepted Donadoni's phone calls, forwarding the calls to the station. I guess that's somehow not illegal. There are pictures of Manzani eating dinner with Donadoni. Yeah, we know. The cops slowly, slowly walk towards Manzani, who has now pulled his gun.
Flashback! Norville's saying, "Manzani! Manzani! Joel! Manzani, Joel! Manzani, Joel!"
"He kept saying your name to tell me that it was you," says Wahlberg. Or maybe, he kept saying your name to tell Manzani it was you. He did say "Joel" almost as many times. Manzani takes a "hostage": fucking Trumper, who just made the most obvious entrance -- through a door that Manzani had already shown us was locked -- right into Manzani's hands. Now, why doesn't Trumper have a gun? Why did they do this without weapons? How stupid is that? Manzani shoots Ramos in the shoulder and starts moving toward the doors. Wahlberg asks Ramos if he's okay. "Yeah," he says, still grabbing at his neck. Manzani's already out the door. So much for the semi-lockdown. Why isn't the place really under lockdown? I don't get it. Weren't they lying about taking the place off of lockdown? Why don't the Feds have any weapons? And there the hell are they? Why is it just Manzani and Fearless in a parking garage, guns drawn?
