Doc and Carlos arrive at a protest scene. The neighborhood is up in arms and the police are in riot gear. Kim and Bobby are talking about it. Doc walks away. A girl in a "#27" yellow cutoff jersey calls out to Doc. He lets her through the barricade. She says her boyfriend is hurt and needs help. She says the boyfriend knows Doc. She won't say who it is. But the girl does give the address. Doc calls Carlos and tells him to call in an unknown incident at that address. Doc and Carlos go to the apartments. Doc spots the apartment door, which police had already smashed in. "What the Hell is going on?" Carlos asks, clearly not putting the pieces together. Upstairs, Doc finds the injured guy. It's Puppet, suffering from acute gunshot-wound-itis. "I didn't shoot no one at no restaurant." A triple-negative. Impressive. "Please, you gotta help me," Puppet says. Commercial time.
Back with Puppet. He says he appreciates Doc's help in the past, and wasn't involved in the murders. Carlos walks away to call the police. Doc stops him. He says if they call it in, Puppet won't make it out of the building alive. Carlos is reluctant, but can't help but agree. Doc starts to treat Puppet. He says that he has to go to the hospital. Puppet and his girlfriend both resist. Doc says if he doesn't go, he'll bleed to death. In the ambulance, with the lights off, Puppet lays still. Doc calls Hayley to give her a scoop on his story. Then he calls Morales to let her know he's coming. She asks why he isn't calling the proper people for the situation. He finally has to tell her he hasn't called the police. Morales is conflicted. Doc pleads for her help. She doesn't say yes or no. Doc tells Carlos to go around the side of the hospital if Carlos sees any squad cars. "I hope you know what you're doing," Carlos says, consulting his book of clandestine-situation movie clichés.
They arrive at the hospital and are immediately surrounded by police. Puppet freaks out. He whips out a gun from the rear of his pants, and immediately Bosco and Ty and the rest are on him, disarming Puppet as he yells at Doc. Hayley is there reporting as Bosco drags the guy from his stretcher and throws him onto the pavement. Morales is trying to help, but Bosco is pushing her away. Doc emerges with the gun from the ambulance, and he looks sad and defeated. Bosco stands Puppet up and walks him into the hospital. Hayley turns to Doc and identifies him as the man who turned Puppet over to the police. Whoops. Hayley tries to talk to him, but Doc walks.
