Everybody in the station seems pretty upbeat for having lost two of their own a few hours ago. And for some reason, nobody has told Wahlberg about it yet, either. Gedrick walks up. Wahlberg introduces him to his family, but they've already met at some company picnic. Kelly is all smiles and performance fleece sweater vest. Wahlberg tells us that he's here to get his paycheck. At night? What are you going to do with it? Willy says they're then going to some place that sounds like "City Walk." ["This? Pamie, you've been living in Los Angeles for almost three years and you've never heard of this thing?" -- Wing Chun] "Oh, yeah, spend some of Dad's money," Gedrick says. Kelly -- completely devoid of character, identity, or personality -- grins and agrees. Ah, feminism. Such a forgotten concept on Boomtown.
Gedrick pulls Wahlberg aside, promising it'll only take a second. Wahlberg deliberates about it for a second, and then follows Gedrick. He gets the skinny on the ambush. "Nicki and Chandler" are the names of the two cops who died. Gedrick tells Wahlberg that they've been trying to reach him all day. I keep calling the head of the department the "Chief," but he's really the Captain. When does someone get called the Chief? I guess I'll start calling him Captain. Fine. Anyway, the captain wanted Wahlberg here because for some reason Ramos is the only detective in the station. I guess Fearless is off smoking somewhere? Wahlberg gets upset, reminding us that a cop died in the very last episode. Gedrick says he can tell that Wahlberg has family plans. "If you want, I can shoot 'em home real quick," Gedrick says. Those two statements seem a bit contradictory, don't they? Wahlberg says he'll take care of his own family. Gedrick walks off.
Kelly is now feeding Willy straight out of the vending machine. Who knows what time it is. She tells him he's only allowed one: either Raisinets or Skittles. Wahlberg gives Kelly the bad news. The bad news is she's still wearing that puffy Back to the Future vest, and she's getting wasted for another episode. The good news is that Megan Ward doesn't have to stay up late learning any more lines. She pouts until she finds out that two cops were killed today. Wahlberg tries not to cry when he tells Kelly that Nicki and Chandler walked into an ambush. Kelly somehow knows both cops who died, and tells us that one of them had twin babies. Too late, I already didn't care about the dead cops. I knew nothing about them and you can't add backstory to them now. You did it last week, telling us Norville had a dad who was shot in front of him, but you can't just keep doing it. The sad music tries to get us to care. Wahlberg says he wants to put Kelly and Willy in a cab. Kelly says it's not necessary -- that she'll be able to handle driving a car. But Wahlberg doesn't think Kelly should be driving. What the fuck exactly is wrong with Kelly that she shouldn't be allowed behind the wheel? "I lost my faith; not my driver's license," she says. Yeah, whatever that means. Maybe one day we'll know. Goodbye, Kelly. I hope you get picked up on another show soon so you don't have to keep wasting a perfectly good trailer on-set. Tell Teresa we said hello. The oboe really wants us to care as Kelly tells Willy that Daddy's job is to help people, and tonight they need his help. Bad camera choice as they zoom to Willy's sightline. This whole "Daddy picks work over you" thing doesn't really faze Willy, who just needs Wahlberg's help on deciding which candy he should eat. Wahlberg admits that he's always been a Raisinets man himself, so Willy picks the same. They plan to go out to City Walk next week instead. All better!
