Recap

Julio is at a restaurant, apparently waiting for someone. A young couple comes in. He checks his dating app online, looking for his date. The waiter tells him that women only want drinks on the first date.

Julio fills out his foster parent application while he's waiting. He gets up and closes his tab. He recognizes some cop and asks if he's working.

Later, the same guy is found dead. He was stabbed in the back 20 times. Never pulled his gun. Provenza thinks maybe the guy was high. There was a trip wire causing him to fall and get jumped. Julio says the cop was not high at the bar last night. . 

Tao recognized the place because they shot an episode of Body of Justice here. It's a rental used for films.

CEO of the film company, Bo,  is a porn star who sleeps with stars when they turn 18. Sex Crimes gave up and gave the case to Narcotics so they could get the guy on drug charges. The victim, Hudson, asked for a week off.  The detective from Sex Crimes, Valdez, says Hudson was a great cop and wasn't dirty.

Buzz got a security video from the hotel bar. Sharon wants Bo called in. 

Security video shows Julio waiting for half an hour for his date. After he left, a woman talked to Hudson. Valdez doesn't know who she is. She gave him an envelope. He left and she kept drinking.

Rusty's bio mom shows up in Sharon's office and says she has something to say that affects "their" son. She tells Sharon that she four months pregnant and didn't want to mention it until she was past the miscarriage stage. She's glad Sharon thinks it's wonderful. She doesn't know what Rusty will think and is scared. She wants Sharon to tell him. Gary won't be in the baby's life and she hopes Rusty will be a big brother.

A video shows an 18-year-old girl having sex with Bo on her birthday. He came in without his lawyer and wants to do a show-and-tell. He gives a speech about how his business is legitimate and has all his tax info, legal documents, and even customer reviews. But when he finds out about the murder he considers calling an attorney. Sykes suggests that would make him look uncooperative.

Bo's partner says she gave Hudson $15,000 to stop selling meth and X to her workers. He kept offering the girls deals. Bo never mentioned any of this. The woman claims that two girls OD'd and Hudson realized he could get caught and was open to stopping his business. Bo doesn't know. She had a few drinks to deal with it after talking to Hudson.

Another girl died of an OD of antidepressants + meth. ME says the two girls mentioned also died the same way. The girls all died right after their 18th birthdays.

Rusty has security video from the murders of Buzz's relatives. Buzz wants to digitize the video. The VCR isn't working and he won't bother Tao about it. Rusty wonders how long it will take to fix all this as he has a post to make for Identity. He was planning to go to Gus' tonight. Before Sharon can explain, she gets called away by Sykes.

Beverly Hills considered the girl, Madeline's death an accidental OD. Her body was found in the same hotel and her room was paid for by Bo. She had both Bo and Hudson in her Snapchat contacts. Provenza thinks Bo could have hired someone to kill Hudson.

Madeline's brother says that Bo corrupted Madeline. Her sexy photos went viral. He thought only girls from broken homes did this kind of thing. Bo flew up to Salt Lake to see her before she turned 18. There's proof on Instagram. Madeline came to LA right after graduation without telling anyone. A cop met her at the airport. She thought her brother called the LAPD and got mad. Hudson was using Madeline as a CI. 

Bo is interviewed again and his attorney doesn't think it's a big deal that Bo met Madeline before her birthday. He won't let Bo talk. Bo seems shocked that the other two girls died. He says Lisa said the other two girls went home. His lawyer cuts him off.  Sharon tells Bo to call Lisa right now to set her up.

Rusty comes home to find Sharon is still there waiting for her suspect to take the bait. Rusty asks her what's up. She tells him that his mother came to visit. Rusty freaks out about his mom being pregnant. She thinks Rusty needs to forget about what's best for his mother and think about what's best for the child. She informs him it is not his choice whether his mom has the baby before taking a call from Provenza.

The waiter from before runs away when he sees police. Lisa is arrested while Julio chases the waiter through the kitchen and they generally make a mess.  The waiter is arrested.

Hobbs can't charge the waiter with murder, only drug crimes, because he lawyered up. All they have is circumstantial evidence. Bo will go free.

Lisa's lawyer thinks they have the upper hand. Lisa freaks out when she finds out she might be charged with four murders. It will be a death penalty case. She keeps insisting she was at the bar but Hobbs says she was working with Brady the bartender and is responsible. Lawyer offers max on manslaughter and possession with intent to distribute. Lisa says she only gave meth to women who wanted it. Bo said antidepressants would help them come down. She didn't know it was dangerous. She gave meth to Madeline on her birthday but she couldn't handle it and she revealed she was a CI while high. She didn't know Brady was going to give her antidepressants and kill her. 

Buzz is looking at the VHS tape sitting on the counter as he listens to the confession.

Madeline's brother will not sue if all video of Madeline taken by Bo are destroyed. 

Buzz asks Tao about the VCR. Julio and Tao offer to help. Provenza finds Julio's foster application.

Sharon says Bo is under arrest for rape because of the drugs -- the girls couldn't consent. All videos will be confiscated. Bo's lawyer doesn't think it's a big deal.

Rusty's mom says he was an accident too.  Rusty says the only reason he's okay is he happened to witness a murder. His mom says she can't have an abortion. Rusty thinks she should give the baby up for adoption to give it a chance at a normal life. She says she doesn't hold what he said against him but she can't do it on her own so if he can't support her she might have to give it up. She hopes he'll think about it too.
