The FBI and Major Crimes clash when Brenda's murder case threatens their burglary ring investigation. Paul Burke, who worked in a family-run catering company, is dead. The FBI had been surveilling Eric Shaw in connection to a burglary ring when he engaged Paul in a fistfight. When Eric (the victor) drives off, the FBI follows, with Agent Burns calling 911 to get the LAPD to assist the badly beaten Burke. LAPD arrives five minutes later to find Paul Burke shot twice in the head. The FBI insists their surveillance of Eric be kept secret, which becomes difficult when they learn that Eric's sister is Paul's wife, that the family-run catering company fronts a burglary operation, and that Paul was dating the company secretary, Claudia, who was Eric' ex-girlfriend. In the midst of untangling the knots between family ties and jurisdiction with the FBI, Brenda's parents Willie Ray and Clay drop in for a short visit with some serious news: Clay has thyroid cancer.

Though never seen, a bit more is revealed about Brenda's three siblings: Bobby whom Clay (Brenda's dad) doesn't want to talk about; Clay Jr. who is a workaholic; and, Jimmy who lives in a one-bedroom apartment in New York with his roommate Frank (suggesting a gay relationship kept hidden from Clay).
