PostSubject: Raines Recapped pt. 5   Tue Apr 10, 2007 10:46 pm

Raines, back at the office, tries to pass the shoes on to said boss (Matt Craven, who’s actually really cool and has a good relationship with Raines-a nice change of pace from all those shows where the captain is constantly screaming at the lead guy) that he got from a “doper old lady”. Matt asks how it went with “Samantha” today. Yay! A name!

Raines: Uh, we had a breakthrough as a matter of fact. My problem is you.
Captain: I ask because I care and I want a heads-up when you snap so I have time to find a place to take a clean shot from.

Nicole Sullivan (formerly of MadTV) walks into the office and asks if he’ll spare her so she can explain the insane logic behind the rampage.

Raines: I’m writing a note.

(Have I mentioned how much I love him?)
They ask about Jack and Raines says he’s taking the kid to see Samantha. They both freeze. Funny. Nicole says to give him her love and leaves.

Raines at the “smoke shop”. He shows Sergei the driver license picture of Jimmy and Sergei is playing dumb, so Raines says he should have started with the fact that he has a witness who puts Sergei at his apartment arguing with Jimmy. Sergei is saying it must be a different Belo-Russian. That they all look alike.

Raines offers that maybe Sergei didn’t mean to kill Jimmy. That maybe he didn’t pay for the smoke, so “he rushed at you. You moved aside. And then he fell on a knife that you were holding. Twice.” Weeee!

Sergei is still denying all over the place, saying he has nothing to do with drugs and this is a “tobacco accessories shop” he says, as bongs line the walls everywhere you look. He says he has business and blows Raines off. Then Raines gets on his phone and tells “Boyer” that he asked him to meet him at the shop. Then he sees Boyer outside and goes and opens the door for him.

Boyer is a cop and he walks in carrying a German shepherd. Raines whispers that the dog isn’t that threatening if he’s carrying it. Boyer explains that all the working dogs are…well…working. The dog is Sadie and she’s retired. Boyer puts the dog down. Raines tells everyone to listen up and introduces them to Narcotics officer Boyer and his K-9 partner, Sadie. He says there’s no reason for alarm unless they’re carrying illegal substances. Of course everyone scrams as Sadie goes into action. By “go into action” I mean she begins banging into everything in sight. Boyer mouths to Raines that Sadie is in fact BLIND.

Raines (louder): Boy, look at that determination. Nothing’s gonna – Nothing’s gonna stop her.

Sadie continues to wreck the place and Sergei says he doesn’t have drugs. Raines says he’s not looking for drugs, he’s destroying the guy’s shop. Cue the sound of glass breaking.

Sergei cries uncle. Boyer picks up Sadie saying, “who’s still got it? Sadie’s still got it!” Yay! I love people who reassure dogs. They understand every word you say.

Sergei comes clean and basically said that there was a financial matter, and yes, there was some yelling because he gets “emotional” but he’s not stupid enough to kill “a gangbanger”. Apparently Jimmy was a “Shotcaller for the Four-Twenty Mafia” Suddenly Raines turns to the side and there’s Jimmy with a semi-automatic saying, “you got a problem bitch?”

Back from commercials and Raines is back at the station getting the lowdown from cop lady. Raines hasn’t heard of the “Four-Twenty Mafia” because they just came down from Victorville because things got tense with the “Vagos”. They’re a stoner gang (duh!), white, mostly into dealing weed. Some extortion. Raines assumes that the local gangs can’t be too happy with these guys coming into town. Apparently “Glen Bassett” aka “Surfer” is now the “Shot Caller”. He was just in jail for aggravated assault. Raines wants to know what happened to the good old days when potheads used to stay at home, eat cookie dough and watch the shag carpet. Raines looks like he’s reliving those good old days.

Raines pays “Surfer” a visit. A very surfer-looking guy with blonde spikey hair opens the door to Raines’ badge and yells “FIVE-OH” and jumps out the window and onto the patio. This is not “Surfer”. “Surfer” is a lean brunette (not entirely unattractive) who seems really mellow and not at all high. It turns out Surfer was expecting Raines and he told the other guys, but “Jerry’s kind of self-winding”. I love that expression! I will use it in the future! As Jerry peeks in the window, the other 3 stoner dudes in the house look really stoned and act accordingly.

Raines asks if they know anyone who would want Jimmy dead. Surfer steps up and says that everyone liked Jimmy. Raines seems skeptical. He starts naming local gangs and asks if they liked Jimmy as much as the “Vagos”.

At this point Raines realizes one of the guys is holding his breath, telling him he looks like “Dizzy Gillespie” and to not hold it in on his account. The guy breathes out the smoke and it goes all over the place. Raines: “There you go. That’s healthier” as the kid coughs up a lung.

He starts pointing to the stoners in the room who have completely forgotten he’s there. One is playing a hand-held video game… “not with me, not with me, not with me…OK, I’ll get right to the chase”. He thinks Jimmy was killed because they took over the weed trade. He tries to get Surfer to confess because “it won’t stop at Jimmy” if it’s a gang thing. Surfer professes that Jimmy was like a brother to him and that they don’t have a gang. It’s a family and they take care of each other. Raines points out there’s only five of them and if it’s a gang thing, they’re in for a whole mess of trouble. He asks for a name because “throwing the competition in jail is good for business”. Surfer gives Raines “Tre” from the “Rolling Fifties”. He says that Tre and Jimmy had gotten into a “beef” a while ago. Raines asks his last name, but Surfer insists he’ll be easy to spot because “he has a real specific smile”.

Again...just putting Green Eyez's great recap in normal font:

Raines, back at the office, tries to pass the shoes on to said boss (Matt Craven, who’s actually really cool and has a good relationship with Raines-a nice change of pace from all those shows where the captain is constantly screaming at the lead guy) that he got from a “doper old lady”.

Raines: Uh, we had a breakthrough as a matter of fact. My problem is you.
Captain: I ask because I care and I want a heads-up when you snap so I have time to find a place to take a clean shot from.
