Van and Deaqon meet up with Tubby in a diner. Yeah, I know the character is actually called Aquarius, but that's a dumb name, so I'm sticking with Tubby. Of course, Tubby has a table full of food in front of him, because fat people just eat all the time. Despite that, Tubby looks like he's lost a good deal of weight since the pilot was filmed. I thought it was another actor at first. Tubby isn't happy to see Deaqon because his tarot cards told him that a friend would be bringing bad news. Deaqon says he might just be there to hang out, but Tubby says he wouldn't have brought his "little white friend" if that were the case. Van introduces himself, and they take a seat. Deaqon says that they're looking for three thieves who drive tricked-out motorcycles. Tubby has some information, but it turns out that he just read an article in the paper. Deaqon reveals that the bikers are female. Should two undercover cops really be spilling all of their information in public like this? Deaqon comments on the amount of food Tubby's ordered, and asks about his diet. Tubby says that he's doing "the Atkins thing" now, and that he's lost eighty-six pounds. Van brings it back to the criminals. Tubby says that he might know something, and wants to know what's in it for him. He wants a partner of his named Tony Hornsbury released from prison, because he was framed. Deaqon says that it's a done deal. Van whispers to ask if they can do that, and Deaqon whispers back that he doesn't know. Tubby says that the gang leader is a blonde named Jade who works as a mechanic making custom motorcycles. Deaqon asks Tubby to put word out that Deaqon and Van are high-end fences; Tubby agrees. Van and Deaqon stand up to leave. Tubby warns them that Jade is "hot to death," but that she killed her ex-boyfriend, so they should stay away. Van and Deaqon thank him and leave. Tubby yells after them not to yell out his name when they walk in the door, so Deaqon yells out his name as they walk out.
Deaqon and Van watch some surveillance video of Jade. Deaqon agrees that she is "hot to death." Van is wearing a sleeveless Western shirt that I think was made for a girl. Van says that Jade claimed she killed her ex-boyfriend in self-defense, and she was acquitted. Thus follows an argument where Deaqon claims that Van has too much empathy for the criminals, which clouds his judgment, and Van says that he's just learning background for the investigation so that he's prepared. Because even though they're partners, they're very different. They come from different worlds. Get it? Van starts spouting off facts about Jade that Deaqon doesn't know, but Deaqon doesn't think that proves anything. They finish by arguing about who would win at a game of pool.
