What goes around comes around, and tonight, karma came to collect with a vengeance for Ghost, Tasha, Angela, and Greg. Greg’s plan to use Ruiz to take down Ghost goes terribly wrong when he gets the call that Ruiz was found dead in an abandoned car. Greg arrives at the crime scene to identify the body, and quietly retrieves the wiretap he had given Ruiz to wear when he met with Milan the night before. Unbeknownst to Greg, Ghost is parked across the street, where he calls Angela with suspicions that she might have had a hand in Ruiz’s murder. Angela coldly reminds Ghost that protecting him is in her best interest — if he goes down, so does she.
Ghost meets with Joe Proctor to see how much exposure he and Tommy could face now that Ruiz is gone. Proctor warns him that if the wiretap is played in court and Ghost is implicated in Lobos’ murder, game over. Proctor tries to assure Ghost he will work to make the recording inadmissible if they go to trial, but Ghost doesn’t seem convinced.
Milan summons Tommy to his headquarters and announces he’ll hold off on killing Ghost until he signs the agreement with Karen Bassett to expand Truth globally. Milan reasons that right now, Ghost is more useful to him alive than dead. Tommy reports back to Ghost and urges his partner to take down Milan and his drug cartel on the night of the party. Ghost is hesitant to take such a big risk at first, since the Bassetts will be in attendance, but Tommy convinces him this might be their only chance to get rid of Milan once and for all.
Kanan continues his plan of vengeance against Ghost by further corrupting Tariq. He asks Tariq to do a drug drop for him and when Tariq hesitates, Kanan challenges his manhood, which of course Tariq falls for. When Tariq meets with Kanan’s client, it turns out he’s an undercover cop who arrests Tariq. When he’s placed in the back of the squad car, the cop and his partner try to scare Tariq into giving up the name of his connection. He adopts the “no snitching” front and remains silent, at which point Kanan opens the door and tells Tariq he passed.
