With the release of the auditor's report, Police Chief Tom Bankston pressures Captain Aceveda to clean up the problems at the Barn and substantially reduce his workforce. As the fallout begins to hit, Dutch and Claudette are assigned to investigate the disappearance of Jeffrey Cole, the fourteen year-old son of a mixed race couple. When William Cole overhears Dutch speculating about a child molester who has already raped and killed two other boys, he turns to Vic for reassurance. And once another boy turns up dead, Dutch hopes he can still find Jeffrey alive. Meanwhile, to keep Tomas at bay, Julien seeks help from his sexual reorientation sponsor. And when he learns of a change in the mob's money train schedule, Vic calls off the heist.
