Cutter and Connie go over to the cop shop to make sure they didn't tell Fuller to get the pants, and didn't know that he planned to. They all deny knowing anything about it in advance; Lupo adds that they were just about to apply for a search warrant when Fuller shows up with pants in hand. Cutter mentions that Fuller is Van Buren's mentor, and she's like, true, but he taught her "to do police work, not outsource it to rent-a-cops." Zing?
At the suppression motion hearing, Fuller lies that he brought in the pants "at the request of Lieutenant Van Buren." Cutter and Connie exchange an oh-shit look, and Cutter gets up to remind Fuller that the three police officers swore they knew nothing about the pants ahead of time. Fuller's like, what do you expect them to say, and continues to assert that Van Buren "authorized" his search. The judge has heard enough; Cutter protests inevitable discovery, but it doesn't work. The pants are excluded. As you may have read in the men's room.
Outside the courtroom, reproachful looks are exchanged all around as Fuller files out.
Cutter tells McCoy he knows Fuller is lying, but he doesn't know why. Connie appears with Rikers Island phone records, and reports that Cahill got a visit in jail from two Savings Mart executives...and Fuller.
Cutter and Connie go to Savings Mart HQ to meet with a corporate attorney, a PR exec, and Fuller. The attorney doesn't represent Cahill personally, so Connie doesn't understand why he went to see Cahill in jail, much less why the PR flack had to go too; Cutter accuses Fuller of lying again; Fuller says nothing. The Savings Mart guys get up to leave, and Cutter throws around the phrase "criminal conspiracy" but that doesn't get any results either. On the way out, Connie and Cutter wonder why everyone's rallying around a mid-level purchasing executive.
Cut to Rachel's apartment, where Connie is doorstopping Rachel, who doesn't want to talk. Connie informs her that it's illegal for Savings Mart to threaten her, then notices through the two inches of door Rachel has consented to open that her apartment is full of moving boxes. Savings Mart transferred her to Singapore. She protests that it's a promotion. Connie calls it a bribe, and asks what else Rachel knows about what Cahill does. He buys mouthwash and shampoo, Rachel whines before slamming the door in Connie's face.
