I'll have a Vodka Gimlet.
I'm Rachel.
Should I ask
if you come here often?
Or is that too clich?
Could offer to buy you a drink,
or I could ask
what a nice girl like you
is doing in a place like this?
But I guess
that's not much better.
You could always ask my sign.
I could,
but that could come off
really desperate,
wouldn't it?
Well, to answer your questions,
this would be
my first time here.
I would love for you
to buy my drink,
and I'm just looking
for a good time.
You still haven't
told me your sign.
I'm a Taurus.
- Oh, stubborn.
- Hah.
I just know what I want,
I'm not afraid
to go out and get it.
Would you like
to get out of here?
I thought you'd never ask.
- Maggie?
- Yeah, boss?
Let's go.
They got a body down
at the Fairview Motel.
C.S.U. just confirmed
they're all done in here.
They'll collect the body
when we're finished.
Sam, what's wrong?
- I know this guy.
- What?
- Who is he?
- My ex-partner.
- He's a cop?
- Was.
He got kicked off the force
about five years ago
for being involved
with drug dealers.
He was stealing coke from
the evidence locker.
You think this was a
drug deal gone bad?
A guy naked in bed in
this dump of a hotel?
Does this look like any retaliation
that you've ever seen?
Besides, I heard he cleaned up.
Now that red letter A.
It's a message to someone.
Scarlet letter maybe?
Red A for adulterer?
It's possible.
See if Tom was married.
Maybe he's cheating and
his wife got pissed.
If his wife killed him,
what would he be doing here
- in this rattrap naked?
- I don't know.
There's a lot of things about
this that don't make any sense.
Hey, sis.
I got one of them.
You should've seen him.
He was pathetic.
Hello, Frank.
Hi, I'm Rachel.
I'm just looking for
a good time.
Hey, I'm completely clean, man,
I haven't touched the stuff
in over two years.
Now can't a guy come down
and see an old friend
without being accused
of an ulterior motive?
Sure, Sam.
Man, how you been?
I'm good, Frank.
You know, I'm
surprised to see you
in the neighborhood after...
well, after everything
that happened.
It's what I came
to talk to you about.
Have you seen Tom lately?
No, not in quite awhile.
- He's dead.
- Dead?
- How?
- Murdered last night,
and I thought
you might know who did it.
Look, Sam, I...
Don't bullshit me, Frank.
I know you were mulling
drugs for Tom,
even if they could never get
enough evidence against you.
That was a long time ago,
Sam, all right,
and I'm not involved
in any of that anymore,
- and...
- And Tom?
As far as I know,
he went straight after he got
kicked off the force
and like I said,
I don't roll
with that crowd no more.
So who does?
Frank, if you
don't give me a name,
I'll have no choice
but to take you in
- under suspicion of murder.
- You can't do that.
I used to know you since you were
a beat cop in the neighborhood,
and you got nothin' on me
'cause I'm clean.
You're right.
I got nothin' on you.
We are friends, Frank.
Good friends.
A lot of bad stuff
happened back then,
and I'm just lucky
that I got out
before goin' down
with the rest of you.
You seem to be doing
all right for yourself.
I am.
So what about a name?
The only guys I know that Tom stayed
in touch with from the neighborhood
- was Mick.
- Mick the Cocaine King.
- Yeah, you remember.
That's the guy
that Tom used to work for
back in the day,
'cept for he wasn't
- Cocaine King back then.
- Yeah, more of a court jester.
That's all I got, Sam, really.
'Kay, Frank, fair enough.
It's always good catching up
with an old friend.
You stay out of trouble, okay?
Sure thing.
Take care of yourself.
My, my. You're quite
good at this game,
aren't you?
I've been known to have my days.
- I'm Frank.
- Rachel.
You know, I don't remember
seeing you around her before.
It's my first time.
Yeah, this doesn't look like
your kind of place.
Oh, I don't know about that.
There's certain things
I find appealing.
what's a girl gotta do
to get a drink around here?
I'll tell you what.
Why don't we play
a little game of pool
and whoever wins
buys the drinks?
I'd love
to play with you, Frank,
but let's up the stakes
a little bit,
- shall we?
- Uh, what do you mean?
Well, if I win, you and I could
get to know one another
a little bit better.
Well, I'd like that,
but what if I win?
We'll think of something.
It's almost like I can't lose.
Rack 'em up.
Holy shit as I live and breathe.
- Hey, Mick.
- Come in, come in.
- You wanna drink?
- No thanks.
- I'm on duty.
- Wait.
You're not here
to arrest me, are you?
I swear, officer,
she said she was 18.
- That's very funny.
- Ah, come on, Sam,
you used to have
a sense of humor.
Okay, so what brings you
all the way out here
- after all this time?
- I'm here on business.
Please sit down.
How can I help you?
I'm here to talk
to you about Tom.
Ah, that's a name
I haven't heard in a long time.
Okay, so what about him,
he's got himself
into trouble or something?
Yeah, you could say that.
- He's dead.
- Okay, that's trouble.
- You don't seem surprised.
- When Tom worked for me,
he did more blow
than he delivered,
so, no, I'm not surprised.
Except it wasn't
a drug overdose.
- He was murdered.
- Interesting.
- Drug deal gone wrong.
- It doesn't look that way.
Okay, so what does this
have to do with me?
Until you mentioned his name,
I haven't thought
of Tom in years.
You sure about that?
You can't possibly think
I had something to do with this.
I don't know.
Where were you between the hours
of 7:00 p.m. and 12:00 a.m.
last night?
Ah, 7:00 p.m. and...
I was at a party
hosted by some friends
with about two dozen witnesses
that can place me there.
What time did you leave?
Ah, after 10:00 p.m.,
and then I came
straight back here.
No, I was with
a young lady friend
that I met at the party.
Can you give me
her contact information
so I can verify your story?
You'd be shocked to learn
that I didn't get her number.
- Name.
- Sorry.
I didn't get that either.
Look, Sam, come on,
Tom was an inoffensive,
insignificant little guy.
What possible reason
could I have to kill him?
What possible reason
could any guy have to kill him?
Who said it was a guy?
Guess I never
really had a chance,
did I?
No, no, not really.
I guess it's time to pay up.
I wouldn't want to be accused
of going back on a bet.
There's a storage room
in the back.
Slow down, slow down.
You want this to last,
don't you?
Why don't you sit down
and let me do the work?
- Ah!
- Ugh!
Yeah, you know what's up
Let's do this
in the club
Yeah, you know what's up
Let's do this
in the club
Yeah, you know what's up
Let's do this
in the club
Yeah, you know what's up
Let's do this
in the club
- Hey, where're you goin'?
- It's my sister.
Ah, she'll be fine.
Come on.
Just kiss me,
girl, just hug
Let it all...
Yeah, we gon' cut
Don't worry
you'll get messed up
When you see it
like this, like
really don't worry about
nothin', baby, just hah.
Yep, thanks.
His alibi checks out.
He was at the house party
till about 10:00 p.m.
and all his three witnesses
saw him leave
with a very attractive blonde.
But we still don't know
who the woman was,
- so maybe she...
- No.
We got her name
from one of the guests.
She confirms that she
went home with Mick,
and she was with him all night.
- He's in the clear.
- Damn.
Do we have an ID on the body?
Okay, we'll be right there.
We've got another one,
looks like the same killer.
First an A and now an L?
Jesus, I hate these sicko cases.
- What does it mean?
- I don't know.
I was just talking
to this guy yesterday.
He and Tom knew each other,
that must be the connection.
You don't understand, Maggie,
I knew these guys, too.
I used to run with them
back in the day.
You ran with bad cops
and drug dealers?
I got lucky.
I avoided doing anything
suspicious to I.A.
and when the bust went down,
I took it
as a wake-up call.
It changed my life.
I just wish I knew
what these letters meant.
A-L, Al.
Was there a guy named Al
in your old gang?
Sam, look at this.
That looks like our killer.
Look at the print,
it's a high heel.
We're looking for a woman.
Well, then that might explain
why we find our victims naked.
What, so she screws them
and then she kills them?
It wouldn't be the first black
widow case we had on our hands.
But what about the letters?
I don't know.
Sam, you should be careful.
If the killer is targeting
guys in your old neighborhood,
- you could be next.
- I appreciate the concern,
but I don't plan on
following any women
into a far-off place
to get laid.
But I know someone who might.
Good morning.
How are you?
What a pleasant surprise.
- Um...
- It's Sarah.
Sarah. Of course, I
knew... I knew that.
Sorry to drop by unannounced,
but I think
I left my earrings here
the other day.
Oh, you... you should've called.
I would've...
I would've looked for them.
You didn't give me your number.
Well, that certainly
was a mistake on my part,
wasn't it?
Would you like a drink?
You know, the cops
called me yesterday,
they asked me all kinds of
questions about the party.
Yeah, sorry about that.
Are you in some kind of trouble?
Oh, no, no, no, no, no.
An old acquaintance of mine
was murdered
and I needed an alibi.
Well, lucky for you
I could provide one.
Lucky in more ways than one.
Well, now that you're here,
I was going to take
a jump in the pool,
- would you care to join me?
- I didn't bring a suit.
- Do you need one?
Thanks for the dip in the pool.
Well, now you've got my number,
and don't be afraid to use it.
I won't.
Take care.
- Hello, Mick.
Who the hell are you
and how did you get in my house?
You don't recognize me?
Look, sweetheart,
I've met a lot of women,
but they don't just show up
and break into my house.
Try again, Mick,
I'm not one of your bimbos.
Okay, I'm calling the cops.
I don't think so.
Whoa, take it easy.
Now think really hard, Mick,
are you sure
you don't remember me?
Hey, guys,
this is my sister, Rachel.
Hey, sit down, come join us.
- What's up, guys?
- Sam, what're you doing here?
Same thing you guys are,
having some good times.
Who is this lovely lady?
Hey, I'm Rachel.
Rachel, let's go dance.
Come on, Sam, she just got here.
Ah, sorry, man.
- So who wants to dance?
- Ah! That's me.
- Ah, ha ha.
You're Ally's sister
from that night.
That's right, Mick,
I guess the dope
hasn't completely
melted your brain after all.
I saw what you did that night.
Oh, yes,
you made no contest
You have to be, yes,
to rest to see me
Oh, girl, it's easy
Same for boy
who's doin' it for TV
There's a private room
in the back.
Yeah, you know what's up
Let's do this
in the club
- Hey, where're you going?
- It's my sister.
Ah, she'll be fine.
Come on.
Yeah, you know what's up
Let's do this
in the club
Yeah, you know what's up
Let's do this
in the club
Yo, I know it
feels so good
So better,
but it's still so good
Let me hit you, baby,
like I should
Give it to you,
that real good hug
Ugh! We in
the club tonight
Everything is gonna be
just so right
Got the money
that we got to ice
Come on, y'all,
live my life
Yo, I know
you wanna job
Don't worry, girl,
we won't starve
Do the deal,
until we hear "Last Call"
That's right,
you faked them all
She was drunk,
and you took advantage of her.
Are you kidding me?
She was a hooker, for God sake.
That's not true!
She got paid for sex,
what else would you call it?
She was the best.
- Ready to have some fun?
- Oh, yeah.
What do you got for me?
That is the truth!
How do you think
she paid for your college,
- waitressing tips?
- Well...
Well, if that's true,
if everything
you're saying is true
and she really
was the best then...
Then why did you kill her?
- What?
- I saw you.
I saw you go in
the back room with her
and I saw your friends
go in after her.
You killed Tom.
That's right.
Frank, too,
and you're next.
- Ah!
- What the fuck?
You hurt me.
Mick, it's Sam, open up.
Come on, Mick, open up!
Get back, get back.
He's dead and look.
- Sam!
Dam nit.
It's the same killer, all right.
It definitely a woman.
Now all we got to do
is find the suspect
and see if the show fits.
That's three down, sis,
one more to go.
Hello, Rachel,
it's been a long time.
what're you doing here?
You coulda called me, you know?
But I guess
after what happened, uh,
you didn't really want
to talk to me.
It was, uh...
it was a difficult time for me
as you can imagine.
I suppose so.
And after you accused my friends
- of killing your sister...
- It didn't matter, did it?
It's not like
anyone believed me.
The drunk airhead
who said she knew
who killed her big sister.
I was there, remember?
They all alibi'd one another.
Well, they would, wouldn't they?
There was no physical evidence.
What do you want, Sam,
why this rehash of the past?
- They're dead.
- Who?
Frank, Tom, Mick,
they're all dead,
- murdered.
- What?
Where were you earlier today?
You don't think I had
anything to do with this?
- Where were you?
- I was at work.
You can call and check.
I swear.
Rachel, I want you to know
that if it matters,
I believed you.
You did?
I mean, there is no
proof, but, yeah,
that's why I turned
my life around.
I stopped hanging out
with those guys,
I became an honest cop.
If there is such a thing.
I didn't think
anyone believed me.
I wish I coulda done
more for you at the time.
These past six years...
they've been hell.
I know.
I'm sorry.
You're late.
It was a long night.
Any luck on that lead
you were following up on?
No, it was a dead end.
What're you working on?
I've been going over
the crime scene photos,
I can't seem to get those
letters out of my head.
What does it mean?
I'm all done.
Or I'm gonna get all of them.
- All of who?
- Exactly.
I've been doing some
checking in on our victims,
they all knew each other.
We already knew that.
For chrissake,
I knew all of them.
We came from
the same neighborhood.
Yeah, but check this out.
Six years ago, a hooker
was killed at a nightclub
- in that neighborhood.
- Yeah, I remember,
I was there that night.
Then you know
that case went unsolved.
It's been sitting
in our cold case file
- ever since.
- So?
So I dug into
the old files and found
the investigating
officer's notes.
Did this guy
moonlight as a doctor?
His handwriting is terrible.
Yeah, and there aren't any
type-written copies,
assuming he even did them.
So what are you getting
from all this?
The sister of the hooked
ID'd our three victims
as the killers.
- She saw him?
- Didn't see the killing,
but swears she saw them
go into the back room with her
right before her body was found.
So why were
no charges ever brought?
Not enough evidence.
And the sister was so drunk
off her ass that night
no one thought
her very believable.
So what're you trying to say?
Sam, don't you get it?
We have a vigilante on our
hands, someone who thinks
those guys did kill that girl.
- The sister?
- Suspect number one.
Do we have an I'D on the sister?
No, the notes
are pretty terrible.
I can't even read the name,
I think it starts with an R.
That should
narrow it down a bit.
Very funny, Sam.
It's worse than you think.
What do you mean?
Apparently, the sister
fingered a fourth person,
someone she didn't know.
Look at the name of the hooker.
There's another target
out there.
We need to find the Y?
long time no see.
- I've been busy.
- Sure, I understand.
- The usual?
- Yeah.
How's the police force
treating you?
I'm working a case right now.
It's a hard one.
Are there any easy ones?
Not really.
I didn't think so.
So what have you
got for me, Brad?
I got whatever you need.
- Blonde, I think.
- Blonde it is.
She'll meet you in the VIP room
- in ten minutes.
- Thanks, Brad.
- Excuse me.
- Yes.
What can I get you?
I need a favor.
- Hello.
- Hello.
- I'm Rachel.
- Maggie.
Ugh! What're you doing?
I paid you.
Oh, you haven't paid
nearly enough.
You should know I'm a cop.
I know you are, Maggie.
- You're the last one.
- What?
You're the last one
who killed my sister.
Yeah, you know what's up
Let's do this
in the club
Whoa, hey, where're you going?
It's my sister.
Ah, she'll be fine.
Come on.
Yeah, you know what's up
Let's do this
in the club
Whoa, whoa, whoa, guys,
one at a time.
It's my night off.
- I should really...
- Come on.
Yeah, you know
what's up...
- What?
- Hello, Ally.
You didn't expect
to see her here, did you?
Oh, yeah, I never told you
that I know Tom here.
We used to work in the same
division for a few years.
Imagine our surprise
when Maggie tells us
that we have a snitch
trying to spill the beans
- of our little operation.
- I never meant...
Forget it, Ally,
Maggie told us everything.
- Mick, hold her steady.
- No!
Let's do this
in the club
Yeah, you know what's up
Let's do this
in the club
Can you get me another drink?
Of course.
Let's do this
in the club
Yeah, you know what's up
Let's do this
in the club
Yeah, you know what's up
Let's do this
in the club
Yeah, you know what's up,
let's do this in the club
- Oh, shit!
- We've gotta get out of here.
- Yeah, but what about her?
- Forger her, let's go.
What was your plan that night,
kill her, make it look
like an overdose?
A suicide, maybe?
She was a hooker, right,
No one would even care.
Something like that.
I'm sorry, Sam.
They killed my sister.
I understand.
You do?
I'm as much to blame
for it as they are.
- What?
- If I hadn't kept
you from going to her
that night.
Oh no, you couldn't have known.
Couldn't I?
They were my friends, Rachel,
guys from the neighborhood.
I knew what
they were capable of.
But I was more concerned
with dancing with this beautiful
woman who I just met...
I fell in love with.
I forgive you, Sam.
I forgive you, Sam.
I forgive you.
All right, I'll be right there.
This is it.
BRAD: And so when
they never came out
and it was time to close,
I came in here,
and this is what I found.
You never saw
the other woman leave?
No, but there's a back door,
she could've left anytime.
Would you be able
to give me a description
- of this other woman?
- Absolutely.
It's such a shame.
She's so beautiful.
She's a police officer,
you know?
Yeah, I know.
She was my partner.
Get out.
I'm sorry, dude.
Do you think they'll be able
to find the killer?
I hope so.
So often these cases
go unsolved.
Now think really hard, Mick,
are you sure
you don't remember me?
What, so she screws them
and she kills them?
You'd be shocked to learn
that I didn't get her number.
Yeah, this doesn't look like
your kind of place.
You still haven't
told me your sign.
Good morning.
So who wants to dance?
I got whatever you need.
