Billie appears in split screen and gives a voice-over while we see what she is describing acted out. She says that Deaqon will rent a house for cash, take possession of the car Van ordered from Cassidy, and begin hanging out with his old gang members (including Tubby). While Deaqon hangs out in his new crib, Kane takes surveillance photos. Back at the candy store, Billie hands Deaqon a pager and tells him that if he hits the star key, a SWAT team will be at his door in five minutes. Five minutes? A lot could happen in five minutes. Billie says that she wants Cassidy, too. Van and Deaqon are silent. Billie, cigarette hanging from her mouth, asks what the problem is. Van points out that Cassidy already has two strikes, so she will do anything to avoid getting arrested a third time. Billie promises to cut the deal herself to get Cassidy to testify. Van gets all pissy and tells Billie that he's taking. It. Personally.
Van walks into his hotel room to find that it's been tossed. He pulls a gun and sweeps the area, only to find Cassidy sitting amongst the rubble. She says that she figured she should wait so he would know who tossed the room. She looks up, showing the bruises on her face to maximum avail. It's nice that Kane didn't hit her in her perfect nose or glossy lips, so she can still look pretty while playing the victim. Cassidy asks Van again if he's a cop, adding that if he is, she's dead. Oh, the drama.
Deaqon and Van talk in the candy store. Deaqon says that Van and Cassidy are playing each other. She doesn't know Van's a cop, and Van doesn't know what Cassidy's true intentions are. Deaqon adds that Cassidy could be with Kane, or she could be playing him, too. The bottom line for Deaqon is that Cassidy is working with Kane, and Kane had his brother killed. Van and Deaqon reminisce about Van's partner, and how pissed he would be if he knew what they were doing now. Van admits that his partner's death was his fault. Deaqon says he doesn't like Van, but he knows Van is "good people" who loved his brother. Action Cliché #15 is the two cops who don't like each other setting aside their differences and teaming up for a common cause, but don't think they are going to be friends.
