POLICE LOG: A routine bust at a pot house becomes Detective Traci Nash’s first solo homicide case. Officer Oliver Shaw buys a cabin in the woods. Detailed report follows:
Oliver and Gail stumble upon a pot business in the basement of a house. A stoned-out young man is arrested at the scene. The kid’s name is Chuck. He claims to be a low-level dealer who was just at the house for a pickup. In other news, Andy is looking for the right time to tell Gail that she slept with Nick. She acts extremely twitchy around her new man’s ex-girl. Andy and Gail are ordered to clear the pot plants out of the drug house. Traci is running point on the operation which becomes a murder case when a dead body is found on the premises.
Traci questions Chuck about the dead guy. His name was Ivan and he was the weed supplier at the house. Speaking of the crime scene, Gail burns her arm while carrying some industrial-strength cleaner. This occurs just before Andy is about to offer up the scoop about her and Nick. In other news, Traci makes it clear to Steve Peck that she’s not looking to date anyone right now. They still have to work together though as guns and gangs is now sharing her case even though Traci prefers to go solo.
Nick lets Chuck know that he still hasn’t been cleared. Another suspect is arrested, but the guy only speaks Portuguese. Fortunately, so does Chloe. She tricks the guy into revealing that he speaks English. The suspect admits that he was supposed to kill Ivan, but couldn’t go through with it. Someone else finished the job. The suspect was supposed to call a number after the hit. As Chloe dials, Traci can see from across the squad room that Chuck’s cell is ringing. He’s the killer. Traci lets Chloe know that she was a rock star today. This is just before Steve Nash programs his number in her phone under the name: Captain of the Universe.
