Outside the warehouse, Malachi has assembled a SWAT team. Is there going to be a SWAT team every week? Because I'm totally down with that. Van tells Jade again not to shoot Elena. Jade still isn't convinced. The SWAT team is all, "Swarm, swarm!" Some dude with a bullhorn tells them all to put down their weapons and come out now. Van and Deaqon tell Jade that they have no chance at getting out alive unless she uses Elena as a hostage. Jade agrees with this. First, she wants the money from Van. He throws her the bag of money and she throws him the bag of diamonds. As Jade forces Elena toward the door, Elena elbows Jade in the stomach and takes off. Malachi tells the other cops not to shoot, because she's his informant. Elena makes it out safely. Jade takes Deaqon hostage, although I'm not sure why. Van pulls a gun on her and suggests that they all give themselves up. Jade says that they are going to ride the bike out as fast as possible. Van says that he'll shoot Jade if she tries to take Deaqon. Jade says that everyone she loves is dead, and that if she gets caught, she'll go to Death Row. In other words, she's got nothing left to lose. Van shoots Deaqon in the ass, and now Van and Jade are in a standoff. Jade decides that her best bet is to make a run for it and essentially commit suicide. Van tells her, "Nothing's worth dying over." Jade doesn't fall for that lame line, so he tries, "I care." Jade actually says, "I just wish it was enough." She runs out of the warehouse and gets blown away. Elena cries.
Back at the Candy Store, Van works on Deaqon's ass. The angle makes it look like they're in a compromising position, but in reality, Van is taking the bandage off Deaqon's gunshot wound. Billie walks in and exposits that Tony is still alive. Deaqon is pissed that his ass is all dented now. Van says that he saved Deaqon's life. Deaqon says he wants to work alone. Billie tells them both to shut it, and never to steal from the Candy Store again. Van settles in to watch TV while Deaqon complains some more. I love how they are all light-hearted now when Van was practically going to turn in his badge a minute earlier over Jade. But now she's dead, so let the good times roll!
Next week: the World Series will be pre-empting the show. Sorry!
