JC hotwires a car as he calls in to Finch to tell him Hansen wasn't the target, but the ringleader. And they're going after Wheeler tonight. Stills and another bad cop discuss Wheeler and the situation. Stills says they're taking the shooter out, with headshots, as soon as it's done. They pull an ex-con Wheeler put away out of the trunk and lead him into Wheeler's apartment building. Stills sends his bad cop friend to shut off the lobby lights, then calls another bad cop stationed by Wheeler's door, who says Wheeler's coming out now. And he's got his kid with him. Stills just says, "What a waste." Wheeler and his son get into the elevator. Stills tells the ex-con that he's about to kill a man and his son. The ex-con begs him not to do this. JC walks up to Stills' bad cop friend then and pulls a gun on him. He tells him to drop his weapon, so he does. Then JC shakes his head at Stills, who trains his gun on the ex-con now, instead of the elevator. They await the elevator at opposite sides of the lobby. Wheeler and his son, Henry, come out, and Henry drops his ball. It rolls toward JC, who stops it with his foot, then smiles at Henry when he comes over to pick it up. Henry doesn't notice the guy he's holding with a gun to his head, so he smiles back.
Wheeler and Henry are gone now, so Stills tries to make his move with the ex-con, but JC steps in front of him, with the other cop still in tow. JC tells Stills to let the ex-con go, but Stills says he can't do that, or he and his friends will go to jail. The other cop from the apartment comes into the lobby, and JC shoots him in the leg. He lets the cop he's hanging onto go, and tells him to take his friend to the hospital. He follows orders. JC trains the gun on Stills, who threatens JC that he'll kill him and the ex-con and make it look like they killed each other. "Then, just because you pissed me off, I'm gonna kill your family. And all your friends." JC says he doesn't have any family or friends. He says he went around the world looking for bad guys, but there were plenty of them right here along. We cut outside the building and see the flash of a gunshot or two. The ex-con runs out. Surveillance images.
