At the cop shop downtown, Valchek, Burrell, and Rawls watch a news report on Koutris's drug bust the previous day. The newsreaders says that no one's been arrested yet, but that the seizures have disrupted operations by a group with ties to Colombian narco-terrorists. As Valchek snaps off the TV, we see that the three cops are meeting with Rhonda and Daniels. Valchek crabs, "Now, that, gentlemen, is a case." To Rhonda and Daniels, he adds, "God forbid you two should put something like that on my friend Frank Sobotka." To Burrell, he cracks, "I would die happy." Everyone fake-laughs except Rhonda and Daniels, who murmurs that their case is progressing. Valchek cheerfully asks what they can charge, and Rhonda says, "We're not at that point." Daniels tells him about their wiretaps, on the smuggling operation linked to drugs and trafficked women, and everything else we already know. Rhonda says that with a couple more months on the wiretaps, they'll be able to identify "top-end players." Burrell wants to back up: "You hit a brothel?" Daniels says they did. Burrell: "If you find anything that looks like a list of steady customers, flush it." Ha ha ha, infidelity with prostitutes is cute. Rawls asks whether there were any problems on the raid, and Rhonda says that it's nothing they can't write around. Daniels says that the prostitutes are with Immigration: "And the madam, who has legal residency, we cut loose after she posted bail." Rawls asks whether Daniels tried to see if any of the women would roll (not unless you pay extra), and Rhonda says they don't want to do that while the taps are up: "Better to let them think it was a random raid and see what gets said on the wire today."
