Manzani holds up Norville's badge. He says he carries it with him so that he never forgets. He tells Wahlberg to look him in the eye and tell him that he killed Norville. He asks it a couple of times, because this is Boomtown, where echolalia has become a plague. Wahlberg says that he has no further questions. He lets Manzani go, but not before the music tells us that this is far from over. It's far from over, indeed.
Wahlberg asks a female cop -- the one we met last week when the rat gave her a really long backrub -- where she was when the rat made the phone call today. I don't know how we're supposed to know this, but I guess this was the lady who was having sex with Gedrick in the back of a patrol car one day, proving somehow that he wasn't the gay cop this show had set up for five episodes. Wahlberg asks whether she used the dedicated phone line. She says she didn't. Wahlberg asks her about her citation for on-duty alcohol use. She says she made a dumb mistake. He says she took a lot of personal time in September. She says her marriage exploded, and that tends to eat up the days. They talk about this cop ex-husband whom we know nothing about. She calls him "The Prince of friggin' Darkness." The murder apparently happened in his division, which is confusing to me, since there appears to be only one division in this show. Anyway, the girl whose name we still don't know says that if she wanted revenge on her ex, she'd pull a Lorena Bobbitt. Wahlberg starts asking whether she's seeing any other cops, now that she's not with her cop husband. She asks what that would have to do with anything, prompting Wahlberg to start reciting his "answer the question" mantra. Man, if every single cop just starts getting defensive once they've been confronted with confessing to something bad they've done, it seems that being a detective is a damn easy job, doesn't it? The lady cop shouts that she's only being asked this because she's a woman and she went to the sexual harassment seminar and knows how risky that would be. She shouts so fiercely that we're thrown into...
...another flashback. Wahlberg watches the lady cop get her backrub from Manzani.
Karen is lady cop's name. Wahlberg tells her that it's not against the law to sleep with another officer. She says she knows it's not. "Yes or no?" Wahlberg asks. She says that the answer is no. She's sure of it. He lets her go. Wahlberg lowers his head into his hands as Trumper tells him that was better. He asks whether he thinks the rat was her or Manzani. Wahlberg says nothing. Trumper agrees, adding that Karen's too smart, and Manzani's "too much of a mook." He says that cops who are criminals aren't too dumb or too smart, but just in the middle. He says that the next one looks about right. It's Gedrick. Wahlberg says hello and we go off to commercial break.
