Van paces in an entirely white room while being debriefed by Principal Breakfast Club and Shaft. No, it's really Isaac Hayes. No lie. Also, how in the hell did Van emerge completely uninjured from rolling that car? It's not like sports cars are known for their safety features. And yet, not a scratch on him. Principal Breakfast Club blames Van for the botched operation, because he went offline. Van (whose last name, we find out, is Ray) blames the backup team for not adequately clearing the stands, thus allowing the sniper to get in. Principal Breakfast Club says that his own partner is still alive. I don't know what that has to do with anything. Van tries to cringe in pain and grief, but it really looks like he just stubbed his toe. Then, Van gets so angry that he kicks a chair! Wow, he is such a man. Shaft expresses his sorrow over the loss of Van's partner, but then brings up the money Van stole from Evidence. Shaft promises that if Van recovers the money by the next day and finds the sniper, all will be forgiven and his partner will get a hero's funeral. It's so wrong to say that the partner will get a cardboard casket unless Van finds the sniper and the money. Poor dead partner. Van stares at himself in the mirror, and he's all Jackie Kennedy, still wearing the bloody shirt. Shaft says that if Van hasn't found anything out by Monday, the media and the district attorney will get the story, and everyone will blame Van. As Van walks out, we see a "mysterious" (to anyone who didn't see one of the eight million ads FOX ran for the show) female figure watching him through a one-way mirror. And she smokes. So you know she's also a renegade.
Van walks out to his car, and then sees that he has locked the keys inside. He starts beating up the car, like it's the car's fault. I locked my keys in my car this past weekend. I just called AAA. Maybe undercover cops don't belong to AAA. Tiffani "Don't Call Me Amber" Thiessen strolls out and asks Van if he needs help; she then removes a long piece of metal from her hair. It's like a chopstick, but you know it's a lock pick. Also, why is Tiffani wearing eight thousand pounds of makeup? You know how sometimes you have two celebrities that are inextricably linked in your mind for some reason, and you get them confused sometimes? I have that with Tiffani Thiessen and Yasmine Bleeth. So when I first saw Tiffani, I thought, "Wow, she looks like that because she just got busted recently with crack in Detroit." But that was Yasmine Bleeth. But that’s how bad Tiffani looks. Van takes the lock pick and starts attempting to pick the lock. As the name suggests. Tiffani (and it's very tempting to call her either "Kelly" or "Val," but since I can't decide between the two, I'll stick with "Tiffani" for now) says she's had her eye on him for a while. Van asks if she's going to ask him out. Tiffani walks to the passenger side, opens the unlocked door and gets in, all while saying that Van has made a lot of mistakes in his career. Van, chagrined, pops the lock and gets in the car. Tiffani tells him that today was not his fault, but it is his problem. She says that while Van and his partner were tracking Sassy Blonde for three months, Tiffani has been tracking her for six, and she offers Van another shot at busting her. Van doesn't answer, so Tiffani hands him a business card and tells him to think about it. He looks at the card, which says, "Wilhelmina Chambers, Lieutenant, LAPD." "Wilhelmina"?
Bill Bellamy plays basketball. That's funny, because when I think Bill Bellamy, I think MTV Rock and Jock, which I always get sucked into whenever they show it. Bill's cell phone rings, and the caller is from the LAPD. Bill's character is named Deaqon Hayes. I don't know what's up with the spelling. I know, it sucks. Anyway, the LAPD guy tells Deaqon that his brother (Van's partner) was shot and killed in the line of duty.
