Kyle.
- Unh.
You may have noticed juror number two is not here.
As a result, I will be sequestering you to a hotel for the remainder of the deliberation.
Why are you so sure there's a mole? I just am, okay? - Okay.
I found something.
The ransom note has five ones.
The bank statement only has four.
Know what it is? The discrepancy in the routing numbers? Got a message from Sophia Russo.
She's probably sorry.
Sorry for what? - For lying on the stand.
Miss Russo, Danny Ferman.
You called Port Authority pulled a crate of these off a South African cargo ship.
One of the crew members bailed overboard.
Victor.
Find him.
There you are.
I just talked to Victor.
He thinks the Feds are following you.
Bullshit.
I've been watching for a tail.
There's nothing.
Pritchard is working with this guy? - Not with him, for him.
They're paying him to throw it.
- I have a new boyfriend.
Too bad that deliberation of yours is taking so long.
Know what I mean? The game is Texas Hold 'Em.
I don't have that kind of money.
Don't worry.
I'll take care of it.
I fucked up.
And Pritchard and Nora These things have a way of working themselves out.
.
Dad.
Dad.
Dad.
Goodbye.
- You be a good boy.
Good night, honey.
- Goodbye.
See you tomorrow.
I'm gonna eat your leg.
You're not gonna get it.
Oh.
His friend's gonna come over to help him.
Ah.
Morning.
Good morning.
Did I keep you awake? No.
No, not at all.
I just need to tell you something.
Yeah.
Yeah, anything.
Hey, Anna.
I'm about to teach a little yoga class, if you want to join.
Oh, thanks, Kaitlyn.
Maybe tomorrow.
You better go.
People are awake already.
Okay.
Talk later.
- Okay.
If he's half as strong as he was on the beat, he'll pull through.
Hey.
- I came as soon as I heard.
Everyone at the station is pulling for him.
Thanks for coming.
How's he doing? What did the doctors say? They're optimistic.
But I don't know, he just got out of surgery.
This wasn't an accident.
What do you mean? You think someone ran him down on purpose? Yeah, he's been tailing this guy the last couple days What are you talking, tailing? He's helping me out with a case I'm on.
- What the hell was he thinking? He's not on active duty for a reason.
I know you've heard stories about your dad being on the job, being a hero and shit.
The fact of the matter is, he's a loose cannon.
Always running around like a hotshot, never calling for backup.
When he got shot, that was his own fault.
Hey, hey.
I'm sorry.
Let me tell you, kid, I always worried about your old man, but I never worried about him bouncing back.
Okay? Well, you're not quite 20 minutes late.
Did they not teach you how to tell time in that kennel you were bred in? What do you want? - What do I want? The kid's father was hit by a car last night.
Accidents happen.
- What I want is an explanation.
You're not doing things fast enough for him.
I told him I had it handled.
Then clearly you and him have different definitions of the word.
You understand I'm now party to conspiracy to commit murder.
I'm not gonna get burned because you and that bitch of yours can't control your homicidal tendencies.
If you can't handle your shit, then you're a liability.
- I had the kid under control.
I had everything under control, and you fucked it all up.
Then why was his cop father in my apartment? If a borderline alcoholic with a bum leg can outsmart you, then you are the goddamn liability.
You tell Victor we're gonna start doing things my way from now on.
Don't get our relationship twisted.
When the trial's over, you're expendable.
Oh, my God.
Will you listen to yourself? You sound ridiculous.
I sound ridiculous? - Yes.
Have you tried to climb down two stories with a 60-pound kid on your back? He would not have to, Seth.
He trusted Malcolm.
He could have asked him to climb down on his own.
Oh, my God, Anna, why didn't I think of that? He probably was like, it's 1:00 in the morning, why don't we play Tarzan? Exactly.
- Hold on, hold on.
Anna, he's got a good point.
There's trust, and then there's trust.
What do you know about trust? Hey, hang on a second.
I'm just being What you're being is an asshole.
- Whoa, whoa.
Okay, okay, let's all just calm down, kids.
Five minutes, everyone.
Let's clear our heads.
I've been holding it for the last hour.
- Me too.
Yo, so what's up with that shit, man? I have no idea.
- She's obviously crazy.
I mean, yesterday she left crying, and today she leaves cursing? Sounds like my wife every day.
Look, she's clearly going through something.
You guys could show her a little sympathy.
These white folks are crazy.
Hey, why are you attacking me in there? I'm not.
- I don't know what's going on, but if this is about last night, and you regret I don't.
I just Can I trust you? - Of course you can.
Say it.
Anna, you can trust me.
They have my sister.
They said they're gonna kill her unless I get the jury to vote guilty.
What are you talking about? Who has your sister? I don't know.
- Anna, if somebody has your sister, we have to say something.
- You can't.
Because they're watching me.
They're watching me.
Oh, my God.
Is this what all the Marisa stuff was about? Anna, if this is true, that means Malcolm is definitely innocent.
I know.
You cannot convince the others to send an innocent man to his death.
She's my sister.
- There has to be another way.
You think I haven't been trying to figure that out every minute for the past five days? Look, I'm not asking you to try to help me.
Please, please, just don't try to stop me.
Okay? Dad.
Dad, hey.
Hey.
How are you feeling? Ha.
Like I got run over by a truck.
How long you been here? Ah, since they brought you into surgery.
I don't know.
A long time.
Um The doctors say you're looking pretty good though.
Where's my cell phone? I don't know.
- Get my cell phone.
Don't worry about that, dad.
- Now.
Get it now.
Okay.
All right.
- Now.
Okay, okay.
Hi.
Excuse me Aw, shit.
Okay, they said you didn't come in with one.
Maybe the police have it? - Listen to me.
I took a snapshot at Cross's house.
It had a board with all the jurors written on it, and I think how they're voting.
What? - You need to get there now.
Okay, okay.
I should call Sanchez.
No, it would take three days to get a warrant, and he'll be wind by then.
You go now.
Go now.
Okay.
All right.
- I'll go with you.
No, you're not going anywhere.
You relax.
I'm gonna go right now.
Just Do you remember the address? Tell me the address.
I texted it to you, don't you ever read your goddamn messages? Okay.
All right, I'll go right now.
Just rest.
Go to sleep.
- Just go.
I'll be back, okay? - Go.
Okay.
Miller.
Hi, Malcolm.
Who are you? I'm a new associate of Pritchard Taft.
Where's Danny? Oh, he's tending to a family emergency, so I'm afraid you're stuck with me.
Okay.
So, uh How are things going? Are we expecting a verdict today? It doesn't really matter.
We all know which way the jury is going.
Who are you? A friend.
Sit down.
Sit your ass down now.
Malcolm, please know that I am on your side.
I want to help you make the best of the situation you're in.
I do.
But in order for me to do that, I need you to help me first.
I don't understand.
Where's the money? I don't know.
- We know you hid it.
Look, you're never going to get out of here.
At least, not alive.
But if you tell me where the money is, I'll make sure nothing happens to your wife and kid.
I swear to God, if you go anywhere near my family You'll what? We're the ones that put you in here.
You don't think we can't orchestrate some horribly coincidental death for all three of you? So you'd better watch your goddamn tone with me, white boy.
Please don't hurt my family.
- That's more like it.
And to show you what a nice person I am, I'll make sure they get a piece of cash to take care of them after you're dead.
Pull yourself together.
Good boy.
I said I don't know anything.
I I don't have the money.
I never had it.
I No, wait, wait, wait.
Don't leave.
Listen, I Yeah, so he's still asleep? Okay.
All right.
No, don't don't wake him up.
Um, just have him call me as soon as he's up, please.
And please let me know if anything changes, anything at all, and I'll be right there.
Okay, will do.
- Okay.
Thank you.
Hey, sorry I'm late.
Hey.
- Yo.
Thanks for meeting me here.
I know you must be busy.
Never too busy to wreak havoc.
How's the food here? Fine, fine.
Um, this is my dad's regular spot, so Oh.
- What are you having? I'm buying.
Hm.
Love me a retro white bread grilled cheese sammy with those individually wrapped American cheese slices.
Two grilled cheeses.
- You got it.
All right, well, let me see 'em.
Yeah, so Okay, here we go.
I was just looking at them.
This is the ledger that I found in Pritchard's office.
Obviously off the books.
I guess.
Why else would it be hand-written in a secret little book, huh? I'm assuming these are sensitive clientele.
Yeah, I think you're looking for the word "criminals.
" Oh, Henry, you little prick.
Got some dirty little business dealings, don't you? You know, what a cliché.
- Each client is entered by a reference number.
I have yet to find any kind of correlating list of names.
Most of them go back pretty far, but this one, this one, that's the one that I'm hoping you can help me with.
That client started making regular payments around the same time we took the Miller case.
I have no doubt I could help you with that.
But the question is, will I? I mean, I'm not exactly applying for the job of your private investigator.
Yeah, no.
Uh, I didn't mean to waste your time.
I didn't have anybody else to go to, so Ahem.
I'm busting your balls, dude.
Send me those photos, all right? I got you.
And, um, I don't know, what's up with those grilled cheeses.
They slow here? Order up.
It took years of hard work to turn it into the global industry it is today.
But I've never considered my business my biggest success.
That would be my family.
Remember: A vote for Mark Bennett isn't just a vote for a business-smart California, It's a vote for family.
- That's right, buddy.
I'm sorry, Mrs.
Bennett, I heard the governor's voice.
It's okay, I was just We shot that two years ago.
It was a miserable day.
Mark was down in the polls.
Nobody thought we were going to win, but he bought me and Nicholas new clothes and sat us down in front of the camera and made us smile and act like we were having the time of our lives.
It's not easy to become governor, is it, Wilson? I think you can answer that question better than me.
You make a lot of enemies.
Political enemies, yes.
I'm sorry to disturb you, ma'am.
Wilson.
I never asked you this before, but Do you think he did it? Ma'am? - Malcolm Miller.
I don't know.
It's not for me to decide.
The governor's out back, taking a swim.
Okay, it's that time again.

But Malcolm still has time to appeal.
And I'm gonna help you.
What's up, man? - Dude, I'm bored.
Wanna play some cards? Nah, I'm actually about to pass out right now, man.
