The prospect of serving prison time prompts Lemonhead to cut a deal with the D.A. to protect the rest of the Strike Team. So, in exchange for seeing that he isn't targeted behind bars, Vic agrees when Antwon Mitchell asks him to help his new lieutenant, rap singer Kern Little, recover confiscated gang property from a police warehouse. However, even as Vic is holding up his end of the deal, he's stunned when Kern is shot by a member of his own gang in a move by Antwon to stop him from returning to power on the street. While Vic lets himself be drawn into an affair with Kavanaugh's wife, Sadie, Dutch and Claudette sign on to track down an assailant who is using rat traps to maim gay men. As Claudette accuses Dutch of leaking word of her illness after she is confined to a desk pending the outcome of a physical exam, rat trap attack victim Alarico Trujillo is reluctant to answer questions for fear of tipping off his wife to his homosexuality. Yet, it is Trujillo's description of his assailant that ultimately allows Dutch and Claudette to bring in Jarred Stawl for questioning. As Kavanaugh's investigation is coming undone, Vic's hopes of helping Lem in prison are dashed when Mitchell reneges on their deal after the warehouse safe is found to be empty. While passing her physical paves the way for Claudette's promotion to command of the Barn, when Trujillo's credibility is damaged by an arrest for spousal abuse, it's up to Julien to get Stawl to confess to the attacks. Finally, as Vic and Becca give in to their simmering sexual tension, Kavanaugh looks to Corrine for some sexual payback. And as Dutch tells Claudette that her mistrust has spoiled their working relationship, Vic sends Lem to hide in Mexico. © 2006 Twentieth Century Fox Film Corporation. All Rights Reserved.
