The Devil and the Deep Blue Sea

1 (TOILET FLUSHING) - Ahem.
- You OK? - Yeah, fine.
- Are you sure? You don't - look OK.
- Supermarket sushi.
For breakfast? Your savage bender continues.
Yeah, something like that.
OK.
What's up? I'm pregnant.
Oh, my Go You OK? I don't know.
What are you gonna do? I'm gonna do what needs to be done.
Six weeks.
Apparently, it's the size of a pomegranate seed.
Oh You really don't look great.
Why don't you - take the rest of the day off? - What about Medusa? - My shift's about to start.
- Don't worry about her.
She can get someone to cover.
Just go home.
Get some rest.
Hey, Stevie What would you do? If you were me.
I would really like to help you out with this, but you gotta make this decision yourself.
(WHISPERING): Yeah.
- (PHONES RINGING) - (INDISTINCT CHATTER) Hey.
Morning, Noah.
Lunch orders? - Those go to Sullivan.
- Funny.
No.
Can you pull these case files for me? Occurrence numbers are there.
456 - 03.
1003! Ha! Ha! Ha! Throwback Thursday's usually on a Thursday.
It's a thing young people say.
Ah Fraser, Nancy, Brown.
Those are the red-haired girls that were found murdered.
- Yeah.
- Funny.
Popular files.
Detective Price took a look at them at the overnight last week.
- Kyle? - Yeah.
Hang tight.
I'll be right back.
(PHONES RINGING) (SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC) Hall? What the hell? Hey.
You guys seen Price? - He was punchin' out.
- It's 9AM.
Yeah, he just finished the Myer case.
72 hours straight.
Amazing.
Caught his guy at a DQ in the middle of his hot eat.
- Your man crush is showing.
- So is yours! What're you lookin' at?! It's not a man crush.
It's a bromance.
All right? OK.
Right.
Yes, I'll be there.
Cooper? You free - to assist on a case? - Uh, I was actually just - What? - Yeah.
- I'm good.
Yeah.
- Good, because we have - got a doozy.
- You and me? - Is there an issue? - No, ma'am.
It's your lucky day: you get to spend it alone with the boss.
Come on! What do you remember about this case? Um Captain Martin Reid, convicted of killing - 3 homeless men 8 years ago? - He took them to an isolated spot, positioned them in front of the water, strangle them and leave the body behind.
This one was found by a hiker, a woman on a jog, and a child's birthday party.
- Can you imagine? - This was your case, wasn't it? Yeah.
I was the lead investigator of Major Crimes Taskforce at the time.
I know.
You were kind of a legend when I was coming up.
Hm.
That was a lifetime ago.
Anyway Last week, a homeless man's body was found at Cherry Beach.
Craig Larson, 62 years old, hands and feet were bound, strangled.
- Same MO as Reid.
- Who is currently serving three consecutive life terms at Montclair.
So you think it's a copycat? Well, the Reid murders attracted a lot of media and that kind of notoriety always draws out the attention seekers.
But what concerns me most is that when Reid gets word of a copycat killing, he's gonna try to use this to prove his innocence - in the original murders.
- And you wanna get ahead - of that.
- Diane Taylor, who took over from me at Major Crimes, wants me to oversee an interview with Reid today.
And who better to help us catch a copycat - Than the cat himself.
- Yeah.
This is gonna be a big interview, Jac.
You want me to do it? Is there some reason why you shouldn't? Because I need you on your game.
No.
Of course.
Yeah, whatever I can do.
- Great.
- (PHONE RINGING) Um "Ass Clown"? My ex-husband.
Andrew.
Yeah.
I just need to know how many tickets Sam should put you down for.
What do you mean? Yeah, I see.
Your new girlfriend is more important than your daughter's university stage debut.
No! No way! You tell her this yourself! I'm So, any questions so far? - One.
- Mhm? - Why me? - The truth? Couldn't hurt.
Because Reid likes pretty, young things.
- Hm.
- Is that a problem? No.
(CAR ALARMS BLARING) It's locked.
Get in.
What the hell are you doing here? I pinged your phone.
Your turn.
Why'd you take out - my dad's files last week? - When you say "your dad's files", you're referring to the 3 redheads? - Why are you looking into them? - The same reason - you are, I guess.
- Brooke Dodson? I saw a connection, so I took a trip down memory lane.
There he is.
Alvin Flowers.
Oh, my God.
I thought he was in Calgary.
He was.
I had a guy keeping tabs on him there.
- How long has he been back? - A few weeks.
Long enough to grab Brooke Dodson.
Has anyone looked into him yet? Major Crimes paid him a visit but they haven't found anything.
That doesn't mean that there's nothing to find.
I know.
That's why I'm here.
(FIONA): Yeah, don't let the face fool you.
Reid's a control freak.
He's a psychopath and a narcissist.
(CHUCKLING): I'm surprised I never dated him.
Well, he's charming as hell and a genius IQ.
Are you talking about me again? - Oh, Diane! - Hey! Come on! You gotta give me a hug! Oh! Still not a hugger! Same old Fiona.
You know, this is place is a maze.
I was on another floor for like, 20 minutes before I realized it.
A lot of hot guys in the Fraud Squad, mind you.
Mm.
Well, great shoes, no sense of direction, - same old Diane.
- And you are the same old - Cooper.
Jacqueline Cooper.
- Wow.
- She is perfect.
Just like you.
- Well, 150 years ago.
Oh, come on.
You still look good ish.
All right.
Let's look at some pictures of our body.
His name's Craig Larson.
Diagnosed schizophrenic.
Took to the streets a year ago.
He has three grown kids.
They're devastated.
They'd lost track of him.
Found him last Thursday at Cherry Beach, - bound and strangled.
- What're his hands tied with? - Cable wire.
- So he would've had to tie a knot for the binding.
Reid only ever used zip ties.
But that little tidbit was never released to the public.
So our copycat wouldn't know that.
Everything else checks out.
Homeless victim, strangled to death, hands were bound, body was posed perfectly at a gorgeous waterfront scene.
Whoever did this definitely studied Reid.
No DNA? Fibres? Anything to go on? - We should be so lucky.
- (PHONE ALERT DINGING) - Shuttle's here.
- I need a coffee first.
I have to make a quick call.
Why don't you show her where the coffee is and take her down to the shuttle? Otherwise, - she'll end up in Cleveland.
- Ha! That's hilarious.
Follow me.
(DIANE): So, Fiona's new protégé.
Has she given you the pep talk yet? How does it go again? "Be better than everybody else and don't embarrass me.
" I wouldn't say I'm her protégé.
Oh, come on now.
You're just being modest.
Fiona doesn't pick just anybody to work with her, especially on a case as important as this.
I would know.
She was my mentor.
Look, when you interview Reid, I'm gonna need you to explore every avenue.
- Sure.
- I mean, we're almost definitely looking at a copycat scenario here, but I'm gonna also need you to remain open to every possibility.
Meaning what, exactly? Look.
The Reid case was Fiona's swan song at Major Crimes.
It was her legacy, and a damn impressive one at that, that she's gonna wanna protect.
Copycat won't affect that.
Reid's behind bars.
- That won't change.
- Unless we put the wrong man - away eight years ago.
- You're implying there's - a chance Reid's innocent? - He's always maintained that he was framed.
This new murder gives weight to that theory.
I've already been fielding calls from the Innocence Project.
- It could get messy.
- Fiona was worried about that.
But you know as well as I do, I mean, reopening another cop's case violates a code.
Yeah, I know what it means, believe me.
I'm just I'm just saying whichever way that goes that it's good that you're gonna be here to help cushion the possible blow that could be to Fiona.
That's all.
'Cause you're close, right? - (PHONE ALERT DINGING) - No! I'm still on trial here.
I've already got a couple strikes against me.
Oh! Reid's been transferred from solitary.
You should head over.
You ready? - They're bringing him down.
- Yeah, OK.
Um, do you mind if I I just need the bathroom.
Yeah.
(KNOCKING) - Cooper? - Yeah, one sec.
You OK? (SIGHING): Yeah.
- Never better.
- Great.
(OMINOUS MUSIC) - D 2! - (BUZZING) (PEN CLICKING RAPIDLY) (BUZZING) Is she nervous? She looks nervous.
Why would she be nervous? When I was fresh, I loved the box.
Didn't stop you from hurling before every interview either.
Mr.
Reid, I'm Detective Jac Cooper.
It's a pleasure.
Before we begin, I need to tell you this meeting is being recorded.
I know the drill, Detective.
The only difference is that the cameras are now moulded into the walls.
I guess a lot changes in eight years.
They still add 15 pounds? I should've hit the gym.
You have great hair.
I'm not here to talk about my hair.
I'm here about Craig Larson.
I'm sorry, it's just, um, your hair.
It, uh reminds me of someone.
My wife, actually.
She has a similar, ah I'm not trying to waste your time but that is why they sent you, isn't it? - I'm sorry? - What better way to make a connection with somebody than to bring in someone who looks just like the woman I lost.
And it's the hair.
I'm sorry.
Ah, forget it.
Forget I said anything.
Let's keep the focus on Craig Larson.
Mhm.
I don't know who that is.
So, you're gonna have to tell me what this is about and why I should care.
Craig Larson was a homeless man who was killed the same way as the men you were convicted of murdering.
His hands and feet were bound.
He was on his knees, facing the waterfront view.
So that's what this is? You want me to help you find a killer because you think that they're killing in the same style as me? Well we're gonna have a problem there.
- And what's that? - I don't have his style.
I I'm innocent.
This picture actually could probably help me a lot.
Could I keep this for my lawyer? We think we're looking at a copycat.
No, there is no copycat.
It's the same person who framed me eight years ago, Alistair Wright.
He is still out there somewhere.
How many more men have to die before you guys can finally admit you convicted an innocent man? We didn't convict anyone.
A jury did, based on evidence.
Could you, um The mess is a bit And the pen.
Much obliged.
Your cooperation could go a long way with an appellate judge.
I'm serving 3 life sentences concurrently.
I'm not winning an appeal and we both know that.
I need to be exonerated and you could help me if you start going after the right guy.
OK.
You're innocent.
I'll bite.
Prove it.
What's your story? The same story I've been telling FOR 2975 DAYS: that I was framed by a man I thought I could trust: Alistair Wright.
He was my commanding officer and he was my mentor and he took advantage of that.
I said it on the day they picked me up and it'll be the truth until the day I die.
- I did not kill anyone.
- So why was your DNA - found at all three crime scenes? - When you enlist, they take samples of your DNA if they need to identify you and Alistair Wright had access to those samples.
So you're saying you think he placed DNA of yours at all of the murder scenes? No, I'm not saying I think it; I know it, and he got away with it.
Well, that's a theory, - not proof.
- He was a violent man.
He killed before he even entered the service.
He told me this.
- Again, hearsay.
- Two assault charges, both on record.
You didn't know about that? Of course you didn't because they didn't give you time to prepare for this but you know what? I've had nothing but time.
If Alistair Wright was the original killer, he would have killed Craig Larson the same way he did his other victims.
Well, this looks pretty similar to me.
Not exactly.
See, whoever killed Craig Larson tied his hands with cable wire.
The other victims, the ones you were convicted of murdering eight years ago, had their hands bound with zip ties.
The kind that just click into place.
That is why we think it's a copycat.
Well, wouldn't he want to change it up? - What? - I'm just saying, he put me away for his other murders.
The MO is very close but the zip ties were not released to the public.
It's a detail a copycat could not have known.
Thus, they did it wrong.
What do you have to say about that? Do you have any idea what kind of place this is? I was having a meal in the lunchroom yesterday - when I heard this loud - (BANGING) And I looked around to see what it was and I thought somebody had dropped their tray, but then I saw the blood.
And I saw that the guy was pickin' something up.
And he was picking up his teeth.
He was picking up his teeth off the floor.
And the guy who was sitting next to him, he's still just sitting there and he's finishing his Jell-O.
Mr.
Reid, this is not relevant to what And when the guard asked him, "Why did you slam that man's mouth into the table?" He said, "I didn't like the way he chewed.
" When I heard a detective was coming here to talk to me, I actually had some hope.
I was actually hoping that someone was coming here to help me try to get back something that's kind of like a civilized life.
But obviously, that's not why you came.
So, I think we're done here.
No, wait.
I'm not finished.
I have plenty more questions.
My lawyer's gonna want copies of that picture and he'll be in touch.
What happened in there? You lost control.
Yeah, I know.
I was trying to establish trust, thought if I could make him comfortable Yeah, you weren't supposed to make him comfortable.
You were supposed to get him to talk about a copycat, not his innocence.
Actually, that's not entirely true.
I asked her to explore every possibility, including the possibility that we might not be dealing with a copycat.
Oh, I see.
And, uh when were you two going to inform me of that objective? We just need to keep an open mind.
That's all.
I spent three years on that case.
You've been here what, eight minutes? No one is questioning your dedication or your police work.
You got the person who fit the crime at the time but now there's a complication.
This new murder creates doubt.
- Jac, feel free to jump in.
- Yeah, Jac.
Jump in.
I would - love to hear what you think.
- Well, I went in there expecting to have a conversation with a psychopath.
Psychopaths don't have emotions.
And talking to him, - looking him in the eye, I just - Oh, my God! You believed him! No, I didn't not believe him.
Jesus, Jac! He manipulates.
That's what he does! Maybe, but it doesn't matter what I think right now anyway.
What matters is what the public will think if they get wind that Reid could be innocent.
Doesn't that mean we have to go through everything with a fine-tooth comb? Yeah.
I went over everything with a fine-tooth comb eight years ago.
Thanks for your help.
(STEVIE): So, are we going in or not? Because if we're not, then you need to tell me.
I need to go and pick up some air fresheners.
It's pretty rank in here.
(CHUCKLING) Kyle, come on.
OK, fine.
I'll go.
Whoa, whoa, whoa.
What are you doing? I'm doing what we're supposed to be doing.
I'm gonna go and get a reaction.
If he's got Brooke, I'll be able to tell.
- Stevie - I just need to see his face.
Stevie! (WHISPERING): St Stevie! Damn it.
(DOORBELL JINGLING) Ready or not Excuse me.
Have you seen this girl? - No.
- You sure? Why don't you take another look? Maybe she came into your shop sometime.
You get a lot of high school kids in here, right? - You're a cop, right? - Does that matter? I should say that it does, because if you are, I'm gonna have to get my lawyer to file another restraining order.
What are you talking about? Oh, come on! You gotta be kidding me.
Is that Price out there too? You know, I'm trying to run a business here and I don't appreciate - all the police harassment.
- I am not harassing you, Mr.
Flowers.
I'm asking if you've seen this girl.
She looks a lot like the ones that went missing last time you - were in town, wouldn't you say? - Now look, you need to go or I'm gonna have to call in a complaint.
And next time you show up, bring a warrant.
Hey, girls! Those are nice! Do you wanna try those on? Dressing rooms are just over here.
(TENSE MUSIC) (DOORBELL JINGLING) - You all right? - You were harassing him? No, no, no, no.
That's not what it sounds like.
What? His lawyer filed a restraining order! What does that mean? How long were you on him for? A couple weeks.
He recognized me from back in the day and it's nothin'.
It's noth you know if he calls that in, then you've dragged me into the mud with you? Oh, please stop being so dramatic, Stevie! You know what? You are just full of the same crap - you always were! - Hey, hey, hey! This case means something to me! It means something to me too! I was on this case the first time around with your father.
Don't forget that! Yes! My father.
I came here because I wanted to finish - what he started.
- We started, Stevie, - what we started! - What is this "we"? The night Nancy Brown went missing, the same night you and I drove out to the Bluffs.
You remember that? Yeah, we stayed until sunrise.
So what? Your father asked me to keep tabs on Alvin.
I took a break, I went off with you, Nancy Brown ended up dead.
(WHISPERING): Jesus We hadn't have done that, Alvin Flowers would be in a cell right now, Nancy Brown would be a 30-year-old woman with a family.
It's my fault that girl died.
Hey! Yo! Pretty rough on Jac this morning.
No rougher than I ever was on you and look at you now.
Currie! No one is questioning - the work you did! - No? That's exactly what you are doing.
You requested my assistance to find a copycat but I will not help you dismantle Reid's conviction.
No! We're just being thorough.
We wanna make sure - we've got the right man.
- A DNA test says we do.
And his name is Martin Reid.
(RINGING) Go for Diane.
(PHONES RINGING) (DOOR CLOSING) (BUZZING) Hello? Hey.
It's me.
I'm just, uh just checkin' in.
You OK? Yeah, I'm I'm fine.
Look I'm sorry about this morning.
- I should've been more help.
I was in - Shock.
Yeah, that makes two of us.
So have you decided what you're gonna do? No.
Um I haven't really thought about it.
But when I do, I'll let you know.
OK? OK.
I thought you went home.
I didn't.
- Listen, I just - You know what? I don't really wanna talk right now.
I just wanna watch the store.
I want you to walk me through every angle that you worked.
Every detail.
- Found another beach body.
- When? Civilian called it in 10 minutes ago.
Victim's name's Reggie Kahn, homeless man around Queen Street.
OK, Cooper.
Let's go! (SIRENS BLARING) (INDISTINCT RADIO CHATTER) Ligature marks on the neck where the victim was strangled from behind.
Hands are bound.
- They used the ties this time.
- Died facing the water.
Posed.
He's fresh.
Rigor mortis hasn't set in yet.
- Cooper? - Yeah.
Let's see if the civilian who found him has been detained.
OK? And if not, get me the uni who took the statement.
I want all the information ASAP.
- Yeah, right away.
- Don't say it.
Just because they used zip ties doesn't mean anything except the copycat got it right this time.
Got something right that's never been released to the press? If that's luck, then he should play the slots.
- It proves nothing.
- It proves this is Reid's exact MO, down to a T.
Craig Larson might've been a fluke but this tips the scales.
We need to broaden the investigation.
Reid is guilty of those murders! - Why? Because you say so? - Let's get one thing straight, Missy.
This is about a man with control fantasies who brutally murdered three homeless men and is trying to get away with it.
And what's worse, he's going to get away with it using the help of a detective I trained! You trained me to look at the details and that's what I'm doing.
The uniform who took the witness statement's headed over.
Press is starting to arrive, so I'll go talk to 'em.
As of now, we're officially opening up the investigation to include the possibility that the Reid killings were mishandled by Major Crimes.
Garbage.
What is? I can still see the garbage from here.
Yeah, so can I.
OK, the ligature marks are criss-crossed, meaning the killer had total control over the body.
He could use the ligature like a steering wheel and angle the victim's head to where he wanted him to look.
- So what are you thinking? - The person who murdered this man is not the person who murdered those men eight years ago.
You got that from a pile of garbage? The person who killed those men eight years ago was a textbook organizational killer.
Right? Methodical, meticulous, nothing out of place, ever.
Well, just like Reid.
You saw what he was like when you interviewed him.
He's OCD, so the bindings and the murder scenes I mean, he values control over everything else, so all of his crime scenes, every single one, wasn't just about the isolation.
It was about the beauty.
So you're saying the murder matches the MO but the site doesn't.
Would a copycat make that mistake? He would try to mimic Reid's MO but how would you get every detail right? You couldn't expect someone to get all the nuances, not when they're so specific to the original killer's psychology.
The body sites, those were all over the news.
Yeah, so if they were gonna screw up, it'd be over a detail like the zip ties, which is what happened with Craig Larson.
How'd they get it right this time? Well, who knew about the cable tie mess-up other than us? Reid.
The MO is very close, but the zip ties were not released to the public.
It's a detail a copycat could not have known.
- Thus, they did it wrong.
- There! Look at Reid's face! - Just for a flash, but he's furious.
- Yeah, I could feel that.
I just assumed it was because if we could prove it was a copycat, it'd shoot holes in his claim of innocence.
No, I think it's because he took the cable wire mistake personally.
- What do you mean? - He was in control of the interview until that moment.
Why? Maybe he thought I was a weak opponent.
- I thought that too, initially.
- Thanks.
No, that cable wire mistake caught him by surprise.
That look of fury, that's the only moment of truth in that entire interrogation.
And then he covers it up fast with that whole sob story - about the lunch room.
- You're right about that.
That was a distraction.
The prison had no record of the incident at all.
But to come up with a story - like that on the spot? - And sell it that convincingly? That's what he does.
- He gets in your head.
- Mhm.
So Reid was in on it.
He knew what you were gonna say about Craig Larson before you even walked in the room! So our copycat is actually a conspirator, and one who screwed up on the zip ties.
OK, but Fiona I double-checked the prisoner logs.
He's had zero visitors or calls in the past four months so if it was a conspirator, how could he have ever told him about the screw up? Jac what if he was in the room with you? Kenneth Hingston.
CO discharged from the service for beating a civilian half to death.
That didn't come up in his pre-screening for the prison? Yeah, it would have but his appeal overturned it and he walked away a free and clean.
Well let's hope he and Reid don't have that in common.
No kidding.
- Kenneth Hingston? - Yeah? Do you remember us? I'm Detective Jac Cooper, Staff Inspector Currie.
We met at the prison.
How you feeling, Kenneth? We heard you left work early today.
Were you sick? Don't worry.
We won't tell anyone you were playing hooky.
But we would like to know what you were up to between 11 and 2 today.
- I was here, watching TV.
- No, you weren't.
We spoke to your landlord.
He said you didn't get in 'til around three today.
What's this all about, anyway? We should probably discuss it down at the division.
You want me to go down to the station - 'cause I left work early? - Let's talk about it there.
- You kidding me? - Humour us.
So this is your conspirator? - Mhm.
- Why him? Well, he knew about the ties; he's got a military past.
He was Reid's CO since he arrived at Montclair.
So, plenty of opportunity to form a relationship.
Sure, but can you prove he killed for him? Well, if we can't, Reid's one step closer to being exonerated, so I don't know what choice we've got.
So you put the kid back in there? Everybody swings and misses sometimes.
So, Kenneth, it says here you were in the military.
- For how long? - Nine years.
Look, I really don't want to do this.
I don't feel good.
Nine years.
That's a long time.
Thank you for your service.
I mean that.
Is it true that after all the hardship, you can never really go back to normal life? What's that like? What do you think? It's hard.
Hm.
(RUSTLING PAPERS) How long is this gonna take? Did you have any trouble adjusting after you came back? What kind of question is that? One that you should answer unless you want this to take a lot longer than it has to.
Fine.
Yes, it was an adjustment.
How so? I didn't sleep.
I couldn't eat.
I found it hard to breathe.
It was not a happy time, but it happens to a lot of guys.
So what changed? I mean, how did things get better? Assuming they are better.
The job.
Being a CO is a lot like being in the military.
You follow rules.
There's order.
- Rank.
- Your employment file says you had some disciplinary issues: attendance, punctuality, calling in sick.
It must have took a while before it made things better.
The job, I mean.
Like you said, it was an adjustment.
In fact, it wasn't until after you requested a transfer to D Ward that things really turned around for you, right? - Yeah, I guess.
- Tell me, why would someone want to transfer to D Ward? 'Cause I asked around and that is a tough ward.
Most requests are to leave it.
- I like a challenge.
- Or you liked Reid.
(LAUGHING) Yeah, right.
That guy's a freak.
You spend a lot of time together.
I'm a CO in his ward.
There's a lot of criminals in there.
Right.
But it must have been a bit different for the two of you.
You both served, you've seen the same things.
Did you ever talk about the military? (SIGHING HEAVILY) Once or twice.
It must have been valuable, having someone to talk to.
Did he talk with you a lot, Kenneth? A little, but we chose different paths.
He ended up behind bars, I ended up in front of them.
So, you're just two guys who share an experience, maybe even an ethos.
You end up in Montclair; you in front of the bars, him behind them.
But Reid he doesn't make you feel like there's any divide between you at all.
- Are you asking me if he was friendly? - Is that how you saw him? - As a friend? - I didn't say that! No.
No, but he does have that effect on people.
Believe me, I just talked to the guy and I was ready to sign his release papers myself.
But I'm a bit of a sucker too.
He makes you feel like you grew up right next door to him or something.
The two of you, military guys, back in a rat's nest like Montclair, you're around a lot of bad people.
Yeah, well, that's the job.
How did Reid feel about his fellow prisoners? Ah he thought they wasted their lives.
Did that make him angry? He talks a lot about potential.
Like they threw theirs away.
But not you.
You served.
You did your public duty.
Damn right.
Did he ever talk about the murders? Ah just to say that he didn't do 'em.
These photos from eight years ago, take a look.
These are the men Reid claims he didn't kill.
Now, look at Craig Larson.
Notice a difference? - No.
- No? The hands? See, this victim's hands are tied wrong.
There are two types of killers, organized and disorganized.
The person who killed these men was organized, precise.
They took their time.
They knew exactly what they were doing, but this killer? (SCOFFING) Messy.
Amateur at best.
They look the same to me.
Well, that's because you are an amateur, looking at crime scene photos takes a trained eye.
Now, look at this one.
See, this time, the killer got it right.
The hands were tied with zip ties.
But you still got it wrong.
I don't see what you mean.
It looks exactly like - the other ones.
- Nope.
See the garbage? Another sloppy mistake.
Reid was a captain.
He needed a soldier.
Thing is, he picked the wrong one.
He picked a dud.
A disorganized, messy dud.
Same reason you were removed from service, right? No.
No, that was overturned.
Doesn't change the fact that you badly injured a civilian.
You prey on the weak, like Reggie Kahn: a walking embodiment of wasted potential.
I told you, I went home! At three.
You went home at three.
Where were you before? 'Cause CCTV footage puts you on Queen Street.
Same place Reggie Kahn disappeared from.
It'd be pretty easy for a trained man to take him down.
Now, how do you think Reid is gonna react to this mistake? 'Cause we saw how you reacted to the first one.
- No.
I didn't do anything.
- You wanna be there when we tell him? Maybe you should tell him yourself.
- I'M NOT GUILTY! - You were his soldier, his lieutenant, and you failed your mission.
Just like you fail at everything! NO! I DID NOT FAIL! I did what had to be done! They tell you to silence a civilian, you silence that civilian! I followed my order! I did what I was told! Just like you followed your orders to kill Craig and Reggie.
Isn't that right, soldier? - SOLDIER! Answer me! - Yes, sir! Yes, sir! YES, SIR! Incredible connection you made.
- She's a keeper.
- Yeah, so they keep telling me.
Hingston's been transferred to a cell.
You should've seen the look on Reid's face when we told him.
Yeah? Wish you'd taken a picture.
I could've used - a new dart board.
- It was nice, working with you again.
We make a good team.
- We always did.
- Keep in touch, OK? - It was great meeting you.
- You too, Cooper.
Hey, if you ever want to join Major Crimes, give me a call.
Jesus! Could you at least have the courtesy of poaching - my staff behind my back? - You know me, I like to let it all hang out.
You can learn a lot from Fiona.
I learned more working with her than I ever did at the academy.
Yeah.
Well, you know, all they teach you at that place is - how to put your gear on right.
- If you hadn't left the task force, you'd still be running it.
Yeah.
You'd still be a pain in my ass.
Am I the only one terrified that woman is in charge - of public safety? - Don't let her fool you.
She's brilliant.
Colourful, but brilliant.
Was it strange, working with your old protégé? - Why would it be strange? - Well, I don't know.
It must have been pretty cool.
Jet-setting across the country, cracking unsolvable cases.
Yeah, it was.
It must have been hard, working with the woman who took your job.
- Do you miss it? - Every day.
Get back to work.
I always felt kind of responsible for your father.
- No.
No, don't do that.
- What? - Do what? - Make this about you.
- It was my father that died.
- What are you gonna do, Stevie? Argue about who feels the guiltiest? I found my dad hanging in the garage.
I've had to live - with that for 15 years.
- I've had to live with the fact that I didn't do what he wanted me to do and someone died because of it, which "Which"? Nothing.
You win.
Daughter's prerogative.
You know, we should probably go and see the cop shrink.
Yeah.
- But we won't.
- No.
No.
My dad had been coming apart for a while.
Me and my mom and Harry, we all saw that.
You only knew him for a short time.
You saw him at his worst.
But he'd always been this this giant presence.
He wasn't just another person in the room.
He was the room.
I'd like to have seen more of that.
Yeah.
Me too.
Price! PRICE! Hey, buddy.
I see that she found you after all.
Sullivan, can't you see these two wanna be alone? Why? Are you on a date or something? - Shut up.
- Ha ha ha! Sit down.
Can I get a pint of stout, please? Sorry, what? Yeah.
Excuse me, sweetheart, can you make that another round for the table and put it on Detective Finch's tab? Hey, when's it gonna be on your tab, Sullivan? Uh, when my daddy starts paying for it.
Ooh (STEVIE GIGGLING) That hurt.
- Two shots of whiskey.
- Oh, no.
I'm OK.
Who says one's for you? When were you planning on telling me? - What? - How far along are you? Come on, Cooper.
I'm a detective.
So? - Six weeks.
- Mm! Congratulations.
Thanks.
I'm not sure what my plans are.
Well, you don't need to know yet.
But when you do we'll be here for you.
To a good day.
We kept a scumbag behind bars.
Yeah, only because you were relentless.
Well, you'll have your own Reid one day.
Two more, please.
Don't you have a play to get to? I do.
This'll help.
Trust me.
Are you glad you had kids? Of course I am.
It's wonderful.
However, being connected to their father for the rest of my life - Can't divorce a co-parent.
- Can't kill him either.
Still more work for me in the end.
Hey, honey.
Thanks for getting back to me.
Yeah, I just wanted to talk to you about the play.
You know, your father really tried but, um he's not gonna be able to make it.
I know.
What do you mean? Of course I'm at work.
Yes, I am.
Hey.
You want to talk about it? No.
I'll get us a seat then.
