Over at the station, we start with a really weird shot: Dexter's looking around the office with a strange, open-mouthed smile as Lundy stands in the elevator as the doors close. Lundy's face looks...proud, as if he just left his son a present. I don't know. It's just weird. Dexter looks to his left, and realizes that everyone is by the windows, watching something. He goes to join them.
When he reaches Angel, he looks down to see a huge lineup of gangsters. "The 29th Street Kings?" he asks. "Yeah," says Angel. "We got 'em." LaGuerta says that the SWAT team did a sweep of one of their addresses: "Maybe we didn't get them on murder, but we busted their asses on drugs, weapons, and money laundering." Pascal chimes in that half of the guys are "three-strikers," and that they have Deb to thank. Deb just smiles briefly and heads back into the main office. As everyone disperses, Angel stops Dex. "Hey, there's something you should know. Deb pulled her gun on an unarmed boy to get him to give up the gang. Some kid named Joey Nuñez." "Thanks, Angel, I'll talk to her." "Okay. I'll give her one thing, though: she's in motherfucking good shape." Word. Dex wonders if Little Chino was involved in this most recent bust, and Angel says he wasn't there. "Too bad," says Dex, even though he doesn't really think so. Dex takes off, and LaGuerta gets a package hand-delivered to her. "What you got?" asks Doakes. "None of your business," she says jokingly. "Damn!" LaGuerta takes the package into Pascal's office, and tells her she opened the package by mistake because she forgot she's not Lieutenant anymore. She then tells Pascal that she should reconsider using department resources to track her fiancé's phone records, because it "could open a shit-ugly can of worms that you might not be able to close." "Only if someone mentions it." "This is me not mentioning it," LaGuerta smiles, and turns to head out. "Maria, I'm new at this...this, not trusting the man that I love, and...I really appreciate your support." LaGuerta nods, and I'm not really sure what the hell is going on here, but I do know that I love it with all my heart. What? No, not really.
Dex is packing up his things and leaving a message for Deb, saying that he has some "unfinished business outside the office" that he has to deal with. There's something on his computer screen that looks like an artery pumping blood, but I can't really tell what it is.
Looks like Joey Nuñez is still spray-painting stuff, but this time, he's in what looks like an abandoned warehouse. Downstairs, Beef Bus arrives in his sweet cholo-mobile, and he's got his machete. He hops in the freight elevator, and upstairs, Joey hears it and stands up. The elevator stops abruptly, and judging by the look on Chino's face, he hasn't reached his desired floor. The doors swing open, and there's Dexter with his long-ass tranquilizer rod. He walks right up and stabs the Bus in the neck, and they struggle briefly. Upstairs, the elevator finally arrives, but Joey Nuñez just stands there as the doors open to reveal nobody.
