"Maybe Gina knows what her father was into," Cross says, heading over to the interview room to upset their witness some more. Wade blocks her path to the interview room and suddenly announces, "Burgers! Chili! Onions! Heartburn! Come on, my treat." Cross says they don't have time to eat, probably because it's starting to look like the only killer she'll ever pin down is malnutrition. But Wade insists, and invites Ruiz along. "I've got to take care of something at home," Ruiz says, dialing his cell phone. Yes, Ruiz, yes, you do.
He's trying to reach Alma, who's having another outdoor break with her coworker Kenny. She ignores the call, as well as the next one. Kenny tells her it gets better, like he's already decided her marriage is over and isn't too broken up about it. "The end is always tough but you move on. Time passes. And you just end up different." She appreciates his being there for her, and then he messes it all up by trying to kiss her…awkwardly. She pushes him away, but doesn't leave, saying it feels good to talk to somebody. In other words, please stay out of the way of my mouth. And honestly, if a guy's going to jump the gun like that with a kiss, imagine what he's like in bed.
Wade and Cross are bookending Gina at a mom and pop lunch counter. Two of them are enjoying the food, but Cross complains, "I don't like burgers." "That's un-American," Wade deadpans. "Eat your freedom fries." Gina asks about her mom, but Wade says it's not a good idea for Gina to go home with her right now. Gina agrees, "She's got her problems." Cross says her mom was like that. "Her thing was cocaine. And men." Well, look who's finally building rapport with the witness, even if it is totally by accident.
Wade assures Gina that her mom can get clean, with help. Gina heads to the bathroom. Now what do you suppose these two experienced investigators do? Given that Gina is their only witness and their best lead? Why, they let her go alone, of course. Gina is barely through the door (where the first shot of the bathroom's interior prominently features a look at the door-sized, wide-open window leading to the parking lot outside) before Cross is making dire predictions about Gina's mom and the bleak future of Gina herself. Based on Cross's own experiences, of course.
Cross says she hated Social Services, which is where she thinks Gina will be until she's eighteen. Wade says Cross didn't turn out too bad, earning a small smile. Cross looks up and sees a woman waiting to get into the ladies' room, and finally goes to check on Gina. When there's no answer, she barks, "Hank!" and kicks the door open. Of course Gina is long gone, most likely through that window that's so huge that Fausto Galvan could probably look into it through his binoculars on his Juarez rooftop. The only question is whether she ran off or was dragged out. Either way, at least two people are goddamn idiots. Cross goes running across the parking lot. As for Gina, at least she's under her own steam, running alone down an alley. So she ran away on her own, meaning there are three goddamn idiots.
