Episode NotesEdit

  • The ten arrested Zyklon Brotherhood members' fates are not shown in the episodes beyond the squad questioning two of them. However, in a deleted scene from this episode, two left their fingerprints on the bag containing Hai Sun's poisoned meal, four had bench warrants for their arrest, one owed child support, one is wanted for questioning in Reno, Nevada, one had meth in his pocket when arrested and one was not wanted for anything.

Buzz's InvestigationEdit

  • Accompanied by Provenza, Buzz once more interrogates Gene Hecht about his role in his father and uncle's murders. Armed with Jennifer Edwards' statement, Buzz demands the name of Gene's accomplice. After being threatened with the death penalty, Gene agrees to give up a name and to testify against his accomplice in exchange for remaining in his usual prison.
  • Gene identifies a man named Bill Jones as his accomplice, but claims to know nothing about the man. Buzz sends Gene back to isolation while Provenza informs Gene of Buzz's connection to his victims.
  • Buzz later informs Provenza that by searching the LAPD Library of Annuals, he believes he has identified the correct Bill Jones, a classmate of Gene's from high school with a juvenile record. However, Buzz is left concerned by the fact that Gene refused to tell them anything about Bill Jones beyond his name.


  • Gus and Rusty watch the first Die Hard movie together which Gus promises is not violent as Rusty doesn't like violent movies. Die Hard is actually a movie with a great deal of violence.
