Over at Rivera's place, Caleb reports to Michael that a source of his claims to have found the GTO. "This is my happy face," Michael deadpans. Caleb and Rivera invite him along to pick it up, and Michael says he'll call off his people. He reaches Fi while she and Nate are inside Caleb's house and gives them the good news that the car's been found. Even though Michael doesn't embed a coded message in there somehow, Nate's not fooled, figuring it's a setup by Caleb to make it look like Jeff and Billy are the real thieves. The problem is that Caleb keeps his computer files locked, and his documents are shredded. But fortunately there's some kind of cache in the printer that allows Fi to print a rental agreement for a storage unit in Billy's name -- five minutes closer to Rivera's place than here. 'They don't know it's a race," Nate points out.
It soon becomes one, with Nate's borrowed El Camino in splitscreen up against Rivera's convoy. Nate and Fi get there first, and spot the car through a convenient window. Thinking there's no time to pick the lock, Fi figures they need to set up an ambush. But Nate insists he can hotwire it if Fi can get him in there, even with the installed killswitch that Michael warns us about in VO. Sure enough, the GTO is gone before Rivera and the gang show up. Billy wonders what they're doing at his storage unit, and when Caleb opens the door on an empty garage, Rivera bitch-slaps his minion for wasting his time. Michael reminds them he still has eight hours to get the car back, and Rivera agrees, threatening to kill both the brothers and Michael if he doesn't have his car back by the deadline. That would be scarier if Nate weren't driving around in it right now.
The problem is that, back in the courtyard, a search of the car from bumper to bumper turns up no heroin, which is not going to satisfy Rivera. Michael says all they can do is plant the car back on Caleb's property, via an access gate from the alley. Nate wonders how they're going to manage that, and Michael reminds him, "Remember that summer dad made us rebuild the Charger? Call Jeff. We need to borrow some tools."
Madeline shows up at the loft to yell at Michael for not answering his phone and to wonder why Nate's packing car parts on a truck with a gun in his pocket. Well, if he does it with the gun in his hand, he's likely to hurt himself. Michael informs Madeline that the job was Nate's idea. "And by the way, you have two sons, I don't know why you're only worried about him." She tells him to quit whining (hear, hear) and says, "Only one of you is about to be a father." Michael's stunned to hear that Nate and Ruth are pregnant, and he gets what she's trying to say. "If I could do this job without him I would, but I can't." So things must be really desperate.
