Sam furiously swears to revenge mate Baruchel, now a Miami cop, whom his wife reported missing, but is soon found murdered. The team finds his cop partner Pete Jackman arranged him to be eliminated by his own drug cahoot, Ted Seyers, so the team pose drug-dealers and IA detectives to trick them, which proves surprisingly hard and dangerous. Meanwhile Jessie, Sam and Michael get Marv to agree to accept the valuable list on a super-encrypted memory-stick, but end up duped terribly. Written by KGF Vissers
