Back at the loft, Sam and his old ex-Navy SEAL buddy Virgil are catching up over beers. "You remember Virgil," Sam says to Michael when he walks in. Michael does, but in case you don't, (even with the subtitle reading "Virgil -- Former Client") Virgil is the guy from last season who brought Michael and Sam in for some help on a boat repo deal that ended up getting them entangled with corrupt cops, Jamaican gangsters, and a stack of drug money the size of an office copier, all while Virgil was banging Michael's mom. So it's not surprising that Michael doesn't seem to happy to see him, reminding him that he promised to stay out of Miami. "Last time I saw you there were people looking for you? Angry people with guns?" Virgil scoffs that that all blew over, and now he's back in town to ask for Michael's help. Turns out that his late partner (not a Navy buddy, as I inaccurately reported in the recaplet, because sometimes Virgil is just too annoying to pay attention to) has a daughter named Marcela who runs some kind of medical relief agency, and that agency just had a big shipment of drugs stolen off a boat. Sam doesn't think it could hurt to talk to Marcela. "Mmm, could hurt a little," Michael says. "Could hurt a lot." But you and I, and Sam, and Virgil, and my three-year-old son M. Edium all know that he's going to give in. Which he does. But then Virgil presses his luck by asking to use Michael's cordless phone to call Madeline (why Michael has a house phone when he's already got more cells than my brain is a question for another time). He mentions that Michael's mom offered to put him up. Yeah, I just bet she did. Michael snatches the phone away with a curt, "You'll stay here. You'll tell her you can't make it and you'll call her when you're back in the Bahamas." Virgil can't believe Michael is serious, but he is: "Last time you were in town, you nearly got her killed. That's not going to happen again." Virgil looks to Sam for help, but since none is forthcoming, he lets it go. No poon tang for Virgil this trip, looks like.
