Let's go vigiling by candlelight. The citizens thoughtfully suspend their rioting in order to stand about and look sad while "Anywhere in Glory" wails on the soundtrack. Sam and Fletcher show up about the same time as their new friends from the BLA arrive on the scene; Sam surmises that they are there to do more than just grieve. Then something weird happens -- on this show? Yeah, I know -- and Sam starts hearing voices. More specifically, he starts hearing voices of friends and relations telling him how much they're going to miss him -- as if he's the guest of honor at his very own candlelight vigil 35 years in the future. As we begin the Machine That Goes Ping, Sam starts noticing that many of the signs at this vigil seem to be less about Keisha and more about him. Sam picks up a paper, and if the grinning mug of George W. Bush is anything to go by, it's not one that was printed in 1973. Perhaps more troubling is one of the headlines: "Hero Cop Killed In Line of Duty." Ruh-roh.
Fletcher semi-snaps Sam out of his "Oh crap, maybe I just died" panic by remarking that there's no way Angel shows up at the candlelight vigil, teeming as it is with people who'd like to kill him. Wrong again, friend -- someone in the mob bellows that he sees Angel, and indeed, the hunted handyman is peering down at the crowd from the very rooftop where the whole incident went down. Tough luck, Angel: your bold gamble of heading toward the danger might have paid off, save for the one fatal flaw in your plan -- it was a totally stupid thing to do.
As a cordon of uniformed officers holds back the remarkably easy-to-repel mob -- are these folks not starting off the day with a healthy breakfast or something? -- Sam and Fletcher beat feet to the rooftop. Carling and Hunt are already up there, with the two of them holding Angel at gunpoint. Now how the hell did those two get up there so fast? Did someone utter their names three times causing them to materialize in a puff of smoke and sulfur? No matter: Sam's decided to give us another thing to puzzle over -- as in, "What would happen if I drew my gun and trained it on Lieutenant Hunt?" An armed standoff is what. "You're pointing a gun at me?" Hunt asks in shocked disbelief. "At me? Have you died and gone to Moron Heaven?" Quite possibly. But Sam's immediate concerns right now are A) making sure neither Carling nor Hunt caps Angel and B) proving Angel's innocence in Keisha's death. C) Wondering whether the suspension or brutal beatdown will happen first is just going to have to be tabled for now.
