Detective Paxson's police escort annoy Michael and ruin another of Fiona's jobs. So they decide to earn the MPD's gratitude, hoping to get them off their backs. Sam discovers that another constant focus for Paxson is Rickie Matheson, a parasite who recruits small criminals and kills them after a lucrative job. Mike poses as Milo, an 'admirer' of Tommy T'Antonio, as expected the next Matheson recruit, so the team can set them up. Meanwhile Sam wrestles with meticulous, incorruptible tax auditor Stacey Conolly, who turns out to have a personal logic. Written by
