The police chief has decided to shelve the seizure policy, and Monica (Glenn Close) goes to Aceveda (Benito Martinez) to try to work out a deal to save it. Vic (Michael Chiklis) and his team are staking out Tretiak (Michael Khmurov), the Russian mobster who allegedly ordered the two cops killed. They find out that he's getting shipments of C4 sent to a local warehouse, and make a bust. They try to scare one of Tretiak's underlings by wiring Tretiak to a load of explosives, but things go horribly awry. They do learn, however, that another man was with the two Nigerians when they murdered the cops. A sting involving Taylor (RonReaco Lee) nabs the third man, Jason Porter (La Monde Byrd), a college student who has no criminal record. His involvement becomes a bit more understandable when Vic learns that he's Antwon's (Anthony Anderson) stepbrother. Dutch (Jay Karnes) and Claudette (CCH Pounder) investigate a homicide involving Bumper (Faleolo Alailima), a disabled man. Joanna Faulks (Rebecca Pidgeon) returns to The Barn looking for Dutch. She's being harassed and threatened because her husband was the "Cuddler Rapist," and she asks Dutch to help her get a carry permit for her gun. Dutch angrily confronts Billings (David Marciano) about the pranks that are being played on him by his fellow officers. Aceveda gets a subpoena to testify in Juan Lozano's (Kurt Caceres) appeal. Juan threatens to testify that he sexually assaulted Aceveda if Aceveda doesn't find a way to spring him. Aceveda turns to an unlikely ally for help in resolving the matter.
