Having obtained the evidence from the illegal wiretap to arrest Bennet Ahmed, Sarah Linden heads to his apartment while Holder goes to get his friend, Judge Russell Elliot, to get a backdated warrant. Linden makes the error of telling Mitch Larsen that the arrest is about to occur. When it falls through and Mitch sees Ahmed at school the next day, she chastises Stan for allowing their daughter's murderer to walk the streets. Stan decides to take matters into his own hands. Linden and Holder meanwhile locate Ahmed's friend Muhammed Hamid and realize they've made a major error. On the campaign trail, the Mayor plays hardball and publicly denies having had a sexual relationship with one of his aides. Written by garykmcd

There are more messed up situations than in any of the previous episodes. Sarah and Stephen, while trying to come up with answers, make promises on which they cannot deliver. The mysterious Mohammed is the target and there are things that aren't known. The trouble is that because of the political/social climate, Bennet is automatically seen as a murderer. When Mitch sees him going back into the school, all bets are off. She brings shame on Stan and he must prove his manhood. That crazy Royce guy is in the middle of everything. Also, Richmond puts it all on the line, literally. The gloves are off and he now must shine. Finally, Mitch makes a discovery that will turn things up a notch.
