Sam's at the loft trying to raise Michael on his own two-way radio when Lane and Harris -- now suspended -- show up looking for an update. Sam tells them what he knows, which isn't much, and they tell him that Bailey ditched the truck he stole, so that's a dead end. Fortunately the radio crackles with Michael's voice calling to Charles Finley. He and Cole apparently reached the city lot, and he's stealing a few seconds with a radio in a fire department car to give an update. Harris says Matt Reese is bad news, and Lane says they know nothing about the girlfriend Cole thinks Bailey is hanging out with. Michael's not happy to hear that the truck turned up abandoned, and tells them to find out about Bailey's girlfriend before they get to the neighborhood Cole's after. Cole shows up a half-second later to hurry Michael with hot-wiring the vehicle. Michael complains about how it takes longer with one hand tied to the wheel. And, to be fair, also when you're wasting time calling your friends (and your "not friends") for help.
Sam gets Madeline on the radio and asks for Jesse, who's supposed to pick up Fi and head over to Bailey's house. Meanwhile, at the lot, Cole has finished clearing some debris so they can drive the stolen vehicle out of there, but he accidentally tips over a transformer pole. While it's coming down, Michael shouts a warning for him to get out of the puddle of water he's been standing in, and Cole quickly hops up into the hood of a parked car, just in time to avoid being electrocuted. So he's safe, but he's stranded and the live cable is electrifying the water that surrounds the car on all sides. Michael comes over all heroic, so to break his restraints, Michael crashes the Fire Chief's car he's in, which sets off the airbag so he can pull the steering wheel loose from the column. With the wheel and flaccid airbag still dangling dashingly from his hand, Michael grabs a handy fiberglass ladder to bring to Cole's rescue -- but not before demanding his gun back. Cole just drops both gun and clip in the water, so now neither of them is armed. As Michael VOs about the value of making a good faith gesture to your enemy -- but not without a price -- Cole walks down the ladder to safety, and Michael cold-cocks him with the steering wheel. But then Cole comes up with a backup gun. It might be time for Michael to stop underestimating Cole.
Jesse and Fi break into Bailey's place, which is apparently not staked out by either the Turks, any law enforcement, or hitmen. Which is good, because for some reason they brought Madeline along. The goal: find clues on Bailey's girlfriend.
