Outside the interview room, Jack is basically, "So this guy totally did it, huh?" but Ralph and Catherine are skeptical because there's no way Netter could have gotten the drop on Rizzo. Catherine still likes Savino for it.
Dixon comes up to tell them Pete's going to be OK, despite being in car crash that incinerated two vehicles and everything, and he's going to go down to the garage where he works. Dixon thinks it's a little too suspicious that as soon as Pete started talking to the law that he got in an accident. But you do such a good job undercover, Dixon! Ralph wants to come with and he tells Jack to find the guy in the white pickup truck. Netter, meanwhile, is staring out the window at Jack.
Over at the garage, Ralph hits on a cute redhead while Dixon is all of a sudden against trying to get laid whilst on the job, so he goes to talk to Pete's boss Eddie, who's working on Pete's car. Eddie says someone bored holes into bolts on the steering column, so once the car got up to 7,000-8,000 RPM, they sheared right off, causing Eddie to lose control.
Ralph has come back over by this point and he cuts off a surprised Dixon just as he's about to ask about the car theft ring, and says their goodbyes.
As he explains to Dixon, "Pete told you that the car thieves are all mechanics, right? Well talk a look around. This is the stolen car ring." From the redhead, he found out that the mechanics disappear for hours at a time, but he got the number she's supposed to call when the garage gets busy. Oh, he and also got her number, but that's strictly for Ralph to have. Dixon is disgusted... and a hypocrite.
Jack has brought Mia lunch -- because a double-cheeseburger ought to make her forget about her shot- and stabbed-to-death dad -- but she's not hungry. She just wants news from the investigation and he's got none. He does have some dumb advice, though: Try not to think about it. She can't stop, because the last time they spoke, they had a fight. She said some horrible things, she says, even though they were things she wanted to say for a long time. "There are a lot of things we'd do differently, all of us, if we could, not that I killed your father or anything," says Jack. She tells him Vincent offered her her old job back and she wants to take it so she can figure out if Vincent killed her dad. Jack thinks it's too dangerous and wants her to promise not to take it. She doesn't say anything.
