Congratulations, sir.
Yes.
That was good.

We're here to serve a bench warrant.
- What's that? - We have a warrant against your husband João Pedro Rangel.
How many people in the house? Me, my husband and my grandson, who is staying over today.

Calm down.
I'm passing the phone.
Ricky? Something's up at my mom's place.
She will only talk to you.

They're raiding the place and asking about the car.
Samira! Calm down.

- Is he OK? - He's fine.
Calm down.

That is not a crime.
- Tell me, Ricky! - Calm down! Clean it up.
Take everything from there.
- A new car is no crime! - Ricky? JPR ENERGY CONSULTING With this type of lock, we would have to knock it down.
He's Petrobrasil's CEO.
We better get the key.
No plea bargain this time.
Maybe this time I won't need one.
Hey! You got JPR? You did? Good.
When we have JPR, who's going to need you? Maybe this time you'll pay the years you owe us.
- Don't you answer your phone? - Did you hear about Ibrahim? Are you insane? Not here.
Fuck! If they get to me, I'll kill that fucking Lebanese.
Did you bring everything? What a shit-show.
There's not much to do now except wait.
- All here.
- Euro, dollar and real? All mixed.
It's all here.
I got you, JPR! Vander! Vander, let's go.
Ricky, tell me the truth.
What happened to my mom? Nothing happened.
- No? - It's just work stuff.
Some auditors are demanding documents.
What auditors? We have to go to your dad's office right now.
What will I do there? I'm getting our son.
Honey, I need your help now.
What about Paulinho? Will come with me? Mr.
João Pedro? I need your office keys.
Please.
I need you to come with us.
Why can't the deputy come over here? He'll be welcome.
That's not how it works.
How, then? What does he need to know? He just wants to ask you a few questions.
Questions about what? The car? Is that it? Sir, he'll talk to you at the superintendency.
Pepê, stay calm.
I'll contact Agostini and he'll sort everything out.
Mr.
João Pedro, let's go.
Follow me.
GATE This way.
Fuck! Ricky, what do you need from here? - Come on, Shayenne! Hurry up! - But what do you need? Dump in the bag every paper you see.
I'm doing it! Every piece of paper.
That's it! Let's go.
Hurry up.
I even grabbed some old phone bills.
Great.
Throw it all inside.
Hurry up! Come on.
That's it.
Get the elevator.
JPR ENERGY CONSULTING Be careful, honey.
Calm down, Ricky.
Done.
Let's go.
Mr.
João Pedro, as Petrobrasil's supply CEO, are you aware of the existence of a money laundering scheme run by Roberto Ibrahim and involving the corruption of public officers? No.
Are you aware of a pool of contractors enjoying privileges in bids for construction work at Antônio & Lima's refinery? No.
Mr.
João Pedro, have you ever been arrested? Never.
Is that it? Can I go home now? Sure.
You're free to go.
What the fuck was that operation against a Petrobrasil CEO? - How was I not aware of it? - I wasn't aware of it either.
Verena's fucking cell phone goes straight to voicemail.
- What's wrong with her? - She's probably flying back.
The unit got to JPR's Office and there was nothing there.
Serves them right! Of course they wouldn't find anything there.
That's not how things work, damn it! She didn't inform me about this.
She made it all up.
A fucking disgrace.
Now it's on her to explain this fucking mess.
- Want a glass of water, boss? - Please.
No ice.
Excuse me.
Leave it here.
There are more boxes coming in.
You can put them on the shelves.
Leave them by those bags.
There, with him.
Leave them by those bags.
Thank you.
Good afternoon, everyone.
Well done.
Three currency dealers and a nice, big haul.
Good work, China.
Everything worked out in the end.
I'm proud of you.
Congratulations.
Now I need a word with Deputy Verena in private.
Please.
You too, Vander.
- You don't have custody.
- The operation was authorized.
You dragged João Pedro Rangel to testify and you have nothing on him.
I will have, soon.
You made this warrant up and acted behind my back.
- You messed up.
Big time.
- I don't think so.
I'm removing you from the case.
You're like Ruffo and you'll end up the same way.
See all the documents we seized? I took a look at it.
It's scary.
If you really do remove me, you had better get rid of all that.
Or it could be embarrassing for you.
Excuse me.
Relax, old man.
Now they will have nothing against us.
I believe in our justice system.
Better than your hotel room.
Ibra! You here? Vander! Why didn't they leave a guard at the office? That's unacceptable.
Beyond incompetent.
- They couldn't do both.
- What? It was either one or the other! I went to the target's house.
Stayed with JPR and sent the Rio agents to his office.
How was I supposed to know? Do you know how much evidence they had there? - Yes.
- No, you don't.
We still have the Evoque.
It's not enough.
I should have known something was off about Guilhome.
Every time there was a crisis he took a bathroom break.
As if he had urinary incontinence.
What now? How can I go after JPR? Did you look at the building's security cameras? But how could I complain? He was too good to be true.
Not only did he organize Ibrahim's accounting in two days, he also figured out JPR's case.
How could I mistrust a guy like that? Here.
See? His daughter and her husband.
What does JPR have to hide? Two suitcases and a few bags.
Well done.
