She returns to Gina and tells her, "A sketch artist is coming!" as though telling a kindergarten class that a magician is on his way. Gina's not as excited by the prospect as Cross might have hoped. Cross starts to lecture Gina about trying harder, but fortunately Ruiz sticks his head in claiming that Cross is wanted in the garage for a look at the killer's abandoned police car. Obviously it's just to get her out of Gina's face for a while, not that Cross recognizes this. So she leaves the room, allowing Ruiz to do his thing.
He asks Gina how she's holding up, and she admits that she can't remember much, like it was "a really messed-up dream or something." She also asks Ruiz for a cigarette, and though he also refuses at first, he gives in, on the condition that Gina doesn't tell Cross. "She's pretty intense," Gina says, but she agrees to the deal and Ruiz lights her up. Those things will kill her. Well, actually they won't, but they could.
Frye and Mendez are again on foot in Juarez, like they just take a cab to the bridge and walk across every time they come down. She's just wrapping up a call in Spanish on her cell phone in which she promises not to reveal any names. Frye is getting impatient with all the "Spy vs. Spy bullshit," as Mendez explains that asking too many questions about the death house will get them in trouble. Frye says that's what reporters do, and she says it's different down here. "No shit, Sherlock," Frye snots. As they come down a hillside into a residential neighborhood, she tells him about what Ruiz told Cross four episodes ago: the 22 other bodies found in the death house with Cristina Fuentes, plus Rafa Galvan.
"Fausto's brother?" Frye asks. Mendez says that Galvan couldn't admit to the death of his brother, so he had it covered up with the help of the police, "specifically, one Chihuahua State Police detective." So now it's Mendez bringing up Marco Ruiz, who already told Cross it wasn't him. As for Fausto Galvan, they've just arrived at something that Mendez wanted to show Frye. Namely, the body of Calaca, tied to a telephone pole several feet off the ground with knife handles bristling out of his body from his right eye to his left leg. Frye murmurs, "Oh my God," not that this is much worse than some other shit he's seen on this show, or even the first dead body he's seen today.
Mendez tells Frye that this is what happens to people who piss off Fausto Galvan. "What do you think he'll do to you if they find out you're asking questions?" Seeing all the passersby just giving the body leering glances, Frye asks why no one has cut him down, and she tells him that everyone is too afraid of Galvan. Frye blusters, "I'm not afraid, are you?" Unlike Frye, she admits she is. But they both want to work the story, so he says, "Gimme your phone." Looks like Calaca will be making the El Paso Times pretty shortly. Also, I haven't been keeping official count, but I think Calaca has now been in as many scenes dead as he was alive.
