Stabler throws money around and says he's a guy looking to do business. Christobal frisks him. Stabler says he took care of Kevin.

El Jefe asks how he knows Kevin. Stabler shows him the video and says his name is Moretti. He says Kevin was looking to rip Duran off. But he doesn't tolerate snitches. He needs a supplier. It's almost like fate.

Duran shows Stabler a sculpture and sends him away. The girl can't tell whether Stabler is who he says he is or not. Duran says she knows what to do.

Stabler calls Bell and updates her as he leaves. He and Bell notice he is being followed. Stabler goes into a parking garage. The gang girl parks nearby and atkes photos of him exchanging money with a guy in a hood.
