On the other side of the building, JC tells Joey they'll be onto him as soon they ID Straub, and he's got to get out of the city. He tells him to go South or West, but he can't stay here. Joey says he can't leave with someone here, but JC gets urgent. He tells him if he stays here, he'll be looking at her from behind bars for twenty years. He tells her to call her and ask her to go with him. "She loves you, Joey. Just tell her it's going to be you and her now. Just you and her." Joey takes off, and Carter starts coming through on JC's radio. She asks if he can hear her, and says she thinks he can. She guesses he's out there, hiding in plain sight. She's on the same side of the building he's on now, looking around for him. She tells him she keeps looking for him, but finding herself in bad situations. He replies that she could always stop looking for him, but she says it's not an option. She says she has two more bodies now, and she doesn't think he killed them but she thinks he knows who did. He says he'll take care of him. She says he's playing a dangerous game, but he says he has his reasons. She's sure he does, but says every killer she locks up thinks he has reasons. And this is how this will end, she threatens, with her locking him up or finding him bleeding out somewhere. He grins and tells her he'll take his chances. You can actually see her on the steps in the background as he walks through the park and away.
She heads down to the evidence locker and past Bench, who's finishing up being questioned by investigators. She doesn't give him so much as a look, but he notices her. She heads back into the cage with Molina. The officers on the scene show them what the robbers took: It's just an empty evidence box that says, "Elias, M." It also says "H73-36" next to "Case" and "58-1278" next to "NYSID No." For those J.J. Abrams fans obsessed with numbers.
Bench asks JC why he let their bank robber get away. JC says he paid his dues and deserves a second chance. But they're not quite done. Latimer's meeting with Sir Elias, whose face we don't get to see. I still think this is Latimer's big boss, despite some objection by forum posters who think he's just a client. I don't think a client can make him kill off his team at the end of a mission, but maybe I'm wrong about that. Maybe it is a client, and the kill-off was just part of the deal. I'm not sure it really matters, though, because this is the last we'll see of Latimer (but I sure hope it's not the last we see of Sir Elias). Latimer asks if they're done as Sir Elias looks through the envelope. It's a picture of what looks like a dead woman, and a picture of a bloody knife. There's also a wrapped-up knife and the case paperwork. Latimer tells Sir Elias they better talk money. Surveillance images cut to JC walking into Latimer's place, where he finds him dead. He tells Bench someone else got here first. Bench asks if he has any idea who, and JC says the name on the box said "Elias." Does that mean anything to Bench? He says no, and he better look into it.
