Cut to Karen and Carl making out in the hallway outside Karen's super-cool apartment which even has a porthole window in the front door. Karen tells Carl to hold on, and Carl says that they should probably wait. Karen unlocks her door and says that she needs to be dressed and out of there by 7. Carl guesses, as he follows her inside, that she's a flight attendant. So then they totally do it, and I'm not giving you the details, because I'm sure you can imagine it.
Karen wakes up the next morning at 5:59 AM. Oh, hell no. She rolls over and finds the other side of the bed empty. But there's a note. It reads, "See U Tonight? Carl." First of all, the "U" would be immediate grounds for dismissal, because Carl is not Prince and Prince is the only person allowed to do that. Second of all, did he need to sign it? Was he worried that she wouldn't know whom the note was from? Anyway, Karen smiles, and then her alarm goes off, so she rolls over and hits the snooze.
Karen and Danny are on courthouse duty, as they walk outside to the front steps. Danny is still urging Karen just to sign off on his report since she can't remember the details of the incident. Karen asks how long he's been a Marshal. He says it's been three or four years, and that his father and brother were both Marshals as well. Karen says it's a lot to live up to, and Danny says he can handle it. Before Karen can say more, a jail transport vehicle pulls up. Konner (Gary Cole) escorts the defendant out of the truck and up the courthouse steps. Danny says he heard that Hector, the defendant, butchered six of his partners with a chainsaw. Hector walks by and says hello to Karen. Danny can't believe that she knows the guy. How long have Karen and Danny been partners, anyway? Amos rolls up and says that Karen caught Hector the first time. Again, not really impressed, since I don't know who in the hell Hector is, and whether he is, in fact, dangerous.
Amos introduces Fuentes, a weaselly-looking FBI agent. Karen says she knows him, and Fuentes smarms, "Not well enough." Karen shoots back, "How's the family, Ed?" Amos tells Danny to go get him some coffee. Hee! Danny is such a bitch. Amos tells Karen that Fuentes wants to know about Carl Wilkins. Karen asks who that is. Fuentes says that Karen saw him Thursday and Friday, and took him back to her place last night. Karen asks if Fuentes is stalking her. Fuentes wants to know what Carl thinks about Karen being a Marshal. Karen wants to know what this is about. Amos suggests that they go someplace more private. Karen says they're fine where they are. Fuentes sleazes that it's a delicate situation when they find out that "a U.S. Marshal is sharing her bed with a bank robber." Karen's facial expression doesn't change.
