Michael stalls with CIA agent Pearce as the team must, before she's shown the at first sight incriminating security videos, Westen's near-dead-ringer, obviously part of an elaborate setup. Pearce herself offers an alternative priority: saving an informant who infiltrated a Serbian gang by finding a way to turn the police on them red-handed before her superiors order arrests which are bound to expose her source. To this end, Michael instructs Sam's alter-ego to deviously approach ruthless drug baron Carmelo Dante by car-crash to ultimately make the notoriously violent drug-fiend believe the Serbians stole from him, which the team must itself.

Sam Axe: [pauses tape] Okay, I know this video is grainy, but from that angle, it sure looks like you.
Michael Westen: It's not me, Sam.
Fiona Glenanne: I assume the burner cellphone he's buying made a call from the scene of Max's murder.
Madeline Westen: Well somebody went to a lot of trouble to do this. Huh. ...

Alternate Versions

For broadcast syndication, the end of a line where Carmelo is referred to as a bastard is cut, but not the following line where Michael Westen also calls him a bastard, echoing the sentiment of the, now absent, first. Cable syndication leaves the line intact. See more »
