Cut Throat

EPISODE:

Episode Info

Lem (Kenny Johnson) and Ronnie (David Rees Snell) are worried that Shane (Walton Goggins) might actually try to kill Vic (Michael Chiklis), but Vic doesn't seem too concerned. He even pays a visit to Antwon's (Anthony Anderson) house in the middle of the night and threatens him after a couple of police informants turn up dead. A local science teacher with no connection to the police is murdered in the same manner. Monica (Glenn Close) orders extra protection for all of the department's CIs. Dutch (Jay Karnes) and Claudette (CCH Pounder) investigate an assault and robbery at a gas station, which leads the observant Dutch to an unexpected run-in with the "Coffee Bandit." When Corrine (Cathy Cahlin Ryan) tells Vic that they might have to drop out of the class-action lawsuit in order for their daughter to be eligible for clinical trials of a promising new drug, he's forced to make certain financial arrangements. Aceveda (Benito Martinez) catches Sara (Abby Brammell) lying to him so she can visit another client, and he goes to great lengths to show her that, as he puts it, "I don't come second to anyone." Monica has Gino (José Zuñiga) from Internal Affairs take a closer look at Vic. Shane and Army (Michael Pena) decide to try to strong-arm Antwon's lieutenant, Halpern (Laurence Mason), in order to get out from under Antwon, but their plans go awry.
