Matthews is in his office watching the video of Deb when Laguerta enters and says that she's settled into his old office. Question: How did Matthews promote himself ? Did he just create a new position so that Laguerta could have his old job? Maria wants to know when he's going to finalize Angel's promotion to Lieutenant. He says he's on it, and then sort of insinuates that she should leave. She does. After she's gone, he watches the video again.
Angel questions Brother Sam about the last time he saw Rivera. Sam is as cool as a cucumber and seems very sincere, but Angel isn't very polite to him. He thinks Sam might know something about his murder. Dexter is watching a surveillance monitor and VO's that he knew Sam when he was a burglar who accidentally killed someone. Dexter was going to kill him when a drug bust got him arrested and taken off the streets and out of reach. Sam tells Angel that Omar was on the straight and narrow. Angel reminds him that he vouched for another ex-con who subsequently killed a 19-year old girl. Sam says that he thinks about that girl every day, but Angel says that her blood is on his hands. Oh yeah? Sam says that there is a lot more than that girl's blood on his hands. He says he's in need of lots of redemption. Angel doesn't believe him and he doesn't care, but he says that Omar did not have this coming. His demons were gone. He says that men can change. "Men maybe but what about a monster?" asks Dexter. More monster talk. Fantastic.
Deb meets Matthews in his old office. He says that he remembers when he was there, with her father. Corruption was everywhere. Deb says that her father said you never knew who to trust. Matthews says that Harry was a good one and so is Deb. He says that he's making her Lieutenant. And she bursts out laughing with disbelief. He's serious. "Fuck Balls. You're serious...sir." He tells her that she's just what the department needs. Fresh face and new ideas. She's still shocked. She says that this is Angel's job and he deserves it. Matthews agrees but says that Angel has baggage. Also, he reminds her that the city considers her a hero. She's stunned but says that this is an honor. She's handling this a lot better than the proposal. She says that she would be Masuka's boss. Wait, she'd be everybody's boss. He tells her that they'll talk about it more the next day then calls her "Lieutenant" before leaving. She repeats the word to herself after he leaves then asks what the fuck is going on today.
