Jakes and Johnny hustle off to their weed meet. Jakes is riled up because Ashika Pearl isn't exactly a nice lady -- she once torched a field of weed and burned six rivals alive. (Also she's a white lady who converted to Buddhism and changed her name and is therefore certainly insufferable, but that seems to be totally separate from how she will not hesitate to murder people.) They arrive and Jakes apologizes for their lateness as Ashika tries to climb into his pants. He introduces Johnny as JT and he replies sullenly when she wants to know his story. Johnny reacts to Ashika's questions like a hotheaded jackass and stalks away, but Jakes convinces Ashika to give JT another shot. She invites him out to the farm -- and, it's implied, to her lady parts.
Paige dresses Johnny down for not sealing the deal today, but he says the machismo was essential to maintaining his gang cover. They agree to go out to the farm the next day.
Briggs breezes into Mike's room, where he's going through the Bello files. Mike says he got a call from the assistant special agent in charge of the Bello case -- presumably someone who outranks Briggs? The not-seen-since-the-pilot Agent Silvo? -- telling him he should only pretend to teach Bello's men how to shoot, since the US government does not have a vested interest in making criminals better at murder. Neither Mike nor I see how that's possible because shooting proficiency is a pretty concrete thing to judge. It's not like he's teaching them dressage. Mike is worried about the integrity of his eyeballs, so Briggs says he'll call the bureau and explain the predicament.
Mike's training day. Briggs and a tactical team are nearby, listening in. Mike assesses the guns Bello has for him, which are mismatched handguns. The shooters Mike will be training are arrayed behind him, and he's surprised that they're not Nigerians. Bello explains that he carved out his own territory in LA, and when he took over space from other gangs, he made it clear to the gangs' members that he had a join-or-die policy.
Eddie informs Bello and Mike that he's set up the targets, but Mike tells him to take them down, as today is not for shooting; it's for learning about the guns. He's going to teach Bello's men to disassemble and clean their weapons. Eddie's upset, but Mike just picks up a gun and says if a gun jams, it can blow your hand off or get you killed, so it's important that the men learn how these guns work. As he speaks, he flawlessly picks off the targets Eddie set up. Bello is impressed, and tells the men to listen to every word Mike says, as Briggs and the tactical team settle in for a long, boring day of Mike explaining firing pins and gun oil.
