Scene shifts to a liquor store where we watch Zeke walk in. Vic Mensa’s song “Reverse” is playing.
🎵 Let me see how you work 🎵
🎵 You boys smokin’ dirt (On Gelato), we smokin’ Larry Bird 🎵
🎵 Saint Laurent straitjacket, go berserk 🎵
🎵 Turn around and throw it in reverse 🎵
Zeke stands in front of shelves on which there are various sizes and shapes of liquor bottles.
🎵 DB11, it’s a ‘vert (Skrrt skrrt), it goes skrrt 🎵
🎵 Keep her panty droppin’, ridin’ shotgun like she Kurt 🎵
🎵 Weavin’ through the traffic with my ratchet in the purse 🎵
🎵 In a Saint Laurent straitjacket, 🎵
The store clerk notices that Zeke is unsure of himself and slow in acting.
STORE CLERK: You buying or window shopping?
Zeke turns around and heads for the door, but then stops, and approaches the counter where the man is behind glass.
🎵 if I crash, I go berserk 🎵
🎵 Overseas I need a visa, breezin’ in Ibiza 🎵
🎵 Tryna’ see me when I’m speedin’, you get burnt like Derek Jeter 🎵
🎵 And my Nina, she’s a diva, purty like Lupita 🎵
ZEKE: Pint of bourbon.
🎵 Peter Piper, pick a pussy, make her peck my millimeter 🎵
🎵 Chilly on the chain but the seats is heated 🎵
There is a loud ticking noise. Zeke looks up at a clock on the wall. The time is a little after 8:00 a.m.
🎵 Shawty wanna race Spent 3 G’s on the sneakers 🎵

Meanwhile at the 129th Police Precinct ] Griffin is sitting behind bars rhythmatically tapping his foot on the bars. The door slides open.
OFFICER DIAZ: Change of clothes from your lawyer.
GRIFFIN: Let freedom ring.
Scene shifts to the office space of the precinct where officers, detectives, and administrative staff are working.
JARED: Larceny, D.U.I., possession a few times over, even an assault.
MICHAELA: How’d you get this?
JARED: I ran his prints.
MICHAELA: How’d you get his prints?
JARED: Lifted them off his coffee cup.
MICHAELA: Yeah, when it’s important, not as a fishing expedition.
JARED: Yeah. Well, I, for one, I think this is important.
MICHAELA: I asked you to back off of the guy, and instead, you’re breaking the law yourself to prove to me something that I already know.
JARED: Has he told you about all these busts?
MICHAELA: No. Not all
JARED: I didn’t think so.
MICHAELA: but he told me that he’s been in trouble, that he’s struggled with drugs and alcohol.
JARED: No, no, no. Assault. He hurt someone. He could hurt you next.
MICHAELA: Is that really what you’re worried about?
MICHAELA: Or are you letting your emotions – get in the way right now?
JARED: My emotions got nothing to do with this. [LONG PAUSE, SIGH] Do yours? Is there something going on between you two?
MICHAELA: It is not like that.
JARED: Please. You have to tell me—
GRIFFIN: Scarecrow. I think I’ll miss you most of all.
