Arc Advancement


  • For the meeting, Pezuela brings in a man named Amando Rios. There's nothing known on him, but Vic sets Agent Murray to find information on him and hopes that she can tie him to the cartels. Unfortunately, Vic and Aceveda learn she's in the blackmail box, which could blow back on them.
  • Vic grants Rezian's second favour by arranging the meeting with the Mexicans. He later tells Shane that if he can get the box for the Mexicans, it will guarantee no retribution.
  • To keep the Mexicans thinking the Rezian has the blackmail box, he uses info on Robert Martin into promising a memorial to commemorate the Armenian genocide. Penzeuala has Martin shot at the march.
  • Dutch suspects Lloyd Denton is a potential serial killer and lured his school mate with the intent to kill him.


  • Danny has a lawyer draw up a document for Vic to sign to waive his parental rights to her son.
