Sure enough, she had plans. Lupo and Green catch him opening up the trunk to a car whose keys he found in the wheel well. He pulls out a duffel bag and that's when the cops announce themselves. While he sputters, they open the bag to show piles and piles of cash. In the interview room, he continues to sputter that he can't say anything because of attorney-client privilege, but he eventually cracks to try and save his own hide, when Cutter assures him that he'll end up just like Bobby Sinclair. They offer to let him plead to a misdemeanor. He asks about his license, and Cutter tells him that's between him and the bar association. It seems to be good enough for him, because he calls Kim to get his next instructions. She asks where he was, and he said he was taking his mom to the doctor; this seems to do it, so she gives him the next steps to take. When they all hang up, Cutter tells Green to arrest her for murder.
There's a little hitch in the plan, though, because when they arrive, there's a slew of FBI agents and a rep from the U.S. Attorney's office already collecting her, saying she's a material witness in an anti-terror investigation. Lupo protests that she's conning them, which of course does nothing other than make him look like a little kid having a tantrum, and they lead her away.
In court, an aghast and pissed-off Cutter is getting nowhere. The U.S. Attorney guy tells him and the judge that Kim contacted them four days ago about "a money-laundering scheme run by Arab nationals." He shuts down every question Cutter has, saying basically that any other info is secret, but does let Kim explain her suspiciously convenient story that she called about some men buying lots of properties and sending the money to Kuwait and Dubai. Over Cutter's protests that she's using this to get out of a murder charge, the judge tells Cutter that waiting won't make any difference to his case, and rules that she stay in the U.S. Marshals' custody.
