Dimitri counts the money and then gives Dallas a big hug, and says he has news. Cut to Dallas at the bar with the red banquettes, telling Van and Deaqon that Nikolai is in the United States, and is coming to L.A. next week. Deaqon comments that a week is plenty of time to set up "that SWAT welcome wagon." They decide to celebrate their nearness to the finish line. The Red Elvises play on stage. Deaqon asks if Dallas will be happy to see this investigation wrap up. Dallas says that the boys are really young, and that at some point they will be in their real life, and dying to get back into another job so that they can forget who they are and what they've done. He points out Katiya, who is dancing alone. Dallas admits that he lost himself in her, and now he has to send her to jail. Deaqon asks if he's messing with them again. Van knows that Dallas isn't. Deaqon asks what the deal is. Dallas says that he really loves Katiya. Deaqon jokes that you can't trust a white boy around a mark in a dress. Dallas says that he knows what he has to do. Katiya runs over to the table and drags the three boys out to the dance floor. Facinelli starts doing that Cossack dance move that Fonzie did at the end of the dance marathon on Happy Days. Katiya freezes when she sees Dimitri walk in with Nikolai behind him. Dimitri introduces the men to Nikolai. Van and Deaqon says that they're surprised, and that they're not exactly ready. Nikolai doesn't care. The way they built Nikolai up through the whole episode, I kind of expected him to be more of a bad-ass. He's kind of scrawny and nerdy-looking.
The Russians (including Nikolai), Dallas, Van, and Deaqon walk out into an alley. Dimitri says that he knows Van and Deaqon keep their money in the car. Deaqon and Van try to stall by saying that they don't have enough, because they weren't expecting Nikolai until next week. Dimitri says they can pay what they have and buy the rest later. Nikolai pats Van and Deaqon down, removing their guns and handing them to Dimitri. A C.S.I.-style camera shot shows us that Deaqon managed to hide his text pager inside his coat sleeve. Dimitri announces and he and Deaqon will ride with Nikolai, and that Van, Katiya, and Dallas will take Van's car. Van asks where they are going, and Dimitri says that it's a surprise. Deaqon slides his text pager down into his palm.
