— Who said it?

Closing the CaseEdit

Brenda's StoryEdit

The Turrell Baylor lawsuit goes to court and Gavin and Peter go up against each other. Peter tries to rile the judge up, but Gavin casually explains away any argument Peter brings.

After the case is solved, the judge informs Brenda that regardless of the crimes Baylor committed, he was entitled to be judged in a courtroom, not the streets of L.A. However, the lack of sufficient evidence from Peter leaves the judge with no choice but to favor the defense's side.

Brenda is delighted and thankful towards Gavin, hugging him. Back at the precinct, the team celebrate the end of the lawsuit and Gavin's success. Unfortunately, Brenda's happiness is short-lived when Peter arrives to inform her that he is filling a federal lawsuit against her over the deaths of various people who were in her custody, along with the harassment of his colleague Phillip Stroh.

Brenda is visibly shaken by this, and tries to justify her actions towards Stroh by pointing out Stroh's rape of a young girl, but Peter argues by saying that she needs to prove that in a court of law, since "what one knows and what one can prove, are two different things".

Despite the list consisting of bad people, Peter says they all add up to a pattern, one which clearly shows how Brenda and the LAPD consistently deny suspects their constitutional rights.

In a final statement, Peter coldly informs Brenda that his goal is to end her, and "all her works".
