Ray. He asks Fearless whether he has any guesses on who the rat is. Fearless: "Nah. We start guessin', it's gonna kill us." I suppose it goes against any of his detective training to start making guesses on who committed a crime, huh? Fearless and Ray are walking through the building where the crime was committed. It's daylight, so I guess we've gone back in time a little. Fearless uses Chapter One of his Detective Handbook to suggest that they "Follow the Money" to figure out who committed the crime. Ray says that there's another option: it could be someone with divided loyalties, someone who grew up in the life and still has friends in the gangs. Oh, now it's dusk outside. Fearless asks Ray whether he's insinuating that Fearless is the rat. Ray scoffs that he's not. "Man grows up south of the 10 freeway, you assume he's got gang ties," Fearless says. That "freeway" was added for those of you who don't live in Los Angeles, where even the highways are so important they're referred to with definite articles. Ray says he knows very little about Fearless and has no opinion on his loyalties. Fearless turns the tables, and reminds Ray that he had a dirty partner who's embezzled hundreds of thousands of Vista Heights dollars, and still nobody knows where that money is. Well, then, I guess he doesn't need to steal gold coins, does he? Fearless tells Ray that he's going to assume that Ray wasn't trying to insinuate that Fearless was the rat, just like he's going to assume that Ray's not insinuating just because he's a guilty man. "Don't get sucked into the finger-pointing, Ray," he says. "'Cause you're better than that, man." Fearless says they can't start looking at each other sideways -- that they still need to be able to count on each other, otherwise they're sunk. But...don't they have to start looking at each other "sideways" because one of them is a rat? Ray says he couldn't agree more. He walks off.
Ray finds Andrea inside the building. He asks how she got this far, and how she's always able to cross the line. Check her source: he's probably the rat. But you know, I'm pretty sure that Ray is her informant. Andrea asks Ray what he wants, since he's talking to her. Ray tells us all that she's recently done a piece on those safe robberies. He asks about her contacts, her confidential informants. "Two cops are dead," we're reminded ONCE AGAIN. He asks if he can see her files regarding the security companies. She asks why the station is under lockdown. Ray says he can't tell her that. Andrea scoffs at the one-way information exchange he wants. Do we have to do this scene with her every single episode where she gets all upset that the cops want her information and she doesn't get anything in return so then they give her whatever she wants so that they'll have to read her files again the next time they have a case? Can't they just make her a cop already? It's much easier than all this singing and dancing every episode to justify her character's existence. Andrea sets her jaw and says, "If I give up my sources, I'm finished. But you know that, don't you?" Yeah, she really can't do that at all. Why is she even entertaining the notion? A special investigator by the name of Kellogg walks up and tells Ray that he has to come with his team of cops. The Captain knows all about it. Kellogg threatens to take Ray by force. Fade out on Ray's confused face.
