"So you buried it?" Cross accuses. "Not me," Ruiz all but squawks, but then when his captain comes in, boisterously introducing himself to Cross as "Capitan Alejandro Rojas," Ruiz tucks Rafa's death photo under the evidence box. So in a way, he's burying it right now. Cross leaves Captain Rojas's proffered handshake hanging and ignores his friendly greeting, "Welcome to Juárez." Dismissing the coworker from the room with a look, the captain turns to Ruiz and asks, "How are they hanging, Detective?" Ruiz answer is "straight and true." "That's not what I've heard," the captain chuckles, like a dad embarrassing his kid on a date, and acts like he wants Cross to show them how the Americans do it. Ruiz interjects that the task force is just for Christina's case, which Rojas already knows. "The Chihuahua State Police doesn't promote fools," he says, smiling predatorily at Cross. Cross asks the captain why the case wasn't investigated, pointedly making reference to 23 dead cartel members. He corrects that it was 22, asking Ruiz to back him up on that, which Ruiz quietly does. With her congenital inability to read a room, Cross repeats the question. "I want to talk to you," Rojas suddenly says to Ruiz, leading him out of the room. "Nice meeting you, detective," he adds pleasantly to Cross, proving once and for all that this character is totally dishonest.
Once the two men are in the next room, Rojas demands in Spanish whether Ruiz knew about this case when he took it on. Ruiz pleads ignorance. "And now she knows about Rafa Galvan?" the captain asks. Ruiz assures him that Cross only cares about Christina Fuentes, which the captain orders him to make sure of. "Keep the Americans out of our business. Understand?" Ruiz does. Good luck with that. After the captain goes on his way, Ruiz returns to Cross, saying she can't ask those kinds of questions here. She reminds him they're investigating a murder. "Is this about Fausto Galvan?" she pokes. He shakes his head, saying, "You're going to get me killed. "I have a family. A man like Fausto Galvan can take my wife and my kids out into the desert, burn them alive and make me watch." Okay, so clearly I misinterpreted the Spanish on that Wanted poster. It must be a Stay Away From This Guy At All Costs poster. Cross presses on, asking what he, Fausto Galvan, has to do with the case and why Christina's body was dumped in that house. Ruiz shuts this down both literally and figuratively, ending the conversation and closing the box, angrily telling her he's taking her back. They walk off and leave the box on the table, I guess for someone else to put away. Did anyone remember to stick Rafa Galvan's photo back in there? Because I think I can see a corner of it sticking out. That could get someone in trouble, right?
