Netflix Summary[]

Warehouse, Dallas, Texas[]

We pick up minutes after where we left off in the last episode, with James in the warehouse with Tonto, the man that had been shot. James gives orders to be brought clean towels and alcohol, clearing off a table with one sweep of his arms. He and The Charger attempt to pick up the injured man. He yells at a group of girls that are standing behind a fence watching to go back to their business. When James notices Teresa, he orders her to grab his feet. The trio manage to get him to the table. James has the man who got the towels lift Tonto's legs up. James opens Tonto's shirt to reveal that his chest is covered in blood, and wraps his finger in a towel, plunging it into the wound left by the bullet. He removes his finger and leaves the towel inside to help keep pressure on the wound, then slaps him awake, telling him not to fall asleep.

Teresa is nauseous and goes to the bathroom to wash her hands and put water on her face. She stares at her hands, which are clean. She has a flashback of killing John.

Camila arrives and goes to the table that they're clustered around, telling him that the doctor is 5 minutes away. James replies that he hopes they have 5 minutes. She tells him that it's all over the news and asks where Teresa is. James tells her that she might be in the back. Cut to Teresa crouching on the floor with her head resting on her knees. James reports that there was a maid that can ID Teresa that got away.

Teresa stands as Camila enters. Camila pets her hair and says that she knows how hard this was for her, but does she really think that she could have gotten out of that hotel room without doing what she did? No, it's not like Teresa had a choice. That cabron was going to kill her, and he wouldn't have blinked or shed a tear. Camila takes Teresa's chin softly and makes her face her, saying that life is for the living and that she needs to pull herself together.

James and Camila are watching the news in Camila's office, turning when Teresa enters. James demands the information she got on the maid. Teresa tries to protect Maria by saying that she was scared and won't say anything. James approaches her and reminds her that it's not a robbery anymore, it's a murder investigation. The cops tend to lose their sense of humor at this point, and the maid can tie her to this. Teresa lies and says that she didn't get her name. He is upset because he specifically told her that the first things she was supposed to do was to get a picture of her ID. Camila says enough and orders James to call Denny at the sheriff's office to get the girl's name and address. She receives a text letting her know that the doctor is there, so she leaves. Teresa turns away so that she can delete the picture she took of Maria's ID.

The Doctor follows Camila inside, asking how long it's been since Tonto was shot and telling them to put his legs down, because you don't elevate legs with a torso wound. They roll him over to look for exit wounds; there are two, but the third bullet is still inside of him. The doctor says that they need an extra hand, and waves Teresa over, having her hold Tonto's legs.

James' phone is being blown up by someone from Florida and he tells Camila that he hasn't answered it because he doesn't know what to say. Camila tells him to answer the phone and tell them that he doesn't know anything about what happened. James' thumb, still covered in Tonto's blood, hovers over the answer button before accepting the call. The person on the other line is Leon Terris, who got his number from Beto, a friend of James', who said that James is the one that set up the meeting that John and Reggie went to. James plays dumb and asks what's going on. Leon repeats his question and yells that his brothers got smoked. James pretends that he just woke up and doesn't know anything; he says he'll make some calls, but he wasn't involved in this. Leon says that he's on a plane, and when he lands, he wants answers.

James tells Camila that they've got another brother and he's flying in. Camila says that she'll think of something, but they need to find the maid first.

James goes to check on Tonto. The doctor tells him that it's a wait-and-see thing, unless they want to drop him off at emergency.

Teresa is washing her hands again. James joins her in doing so and tells her that Tonto is stable, and she should get some sleep. He says that he knows how she's feeling. Teresa says that she doesn't want anything to happen to that woman. James says that he understands, but at this point, it's not her decision to make.

The Queen of the South appears and gives a small nod to Teresa. Teresa gets her screwdriver, which serves as a key to her stolen car, waiting for James to leave before she exits the warehouse parking lot.

Teresa calls Brenda, saying that she's in trouble and she needs her help.

Allen's business[]

Camila pays a visit to Allen, who is putting cash into his safe. He says that he thought that she was dry, and she retorts that she said that it was a temporary thing. He tries some and says that it's really nice, but there's just one problem.

Eric Watson exits his car with a bag and enters Allen's office. Camila greets him instead, making the comment that he belongs in north Texas, not here. He looks afraid, but responds that he knows that she's not authorized to take him out, and asks Allen to join them. Allen does, and he tells Eric that their dealings were just temporary. Camila tells him to go back to north Texas. Camila tells Allen to call her if Eric gives him any trouble.


James meets up with Denny the police officer to get Maria's information. Denny complains about how messy they've been and reminds him that they're not supposed to make the Dallas police look bad. James receives another call from Leon, who has just landed and wants to meet.

Maria's apartment building[]

Teresa parks outside of an apartment building and runs up the stairs, knocking on the door urgently. Maria Sanchez opens the door, and Teresa pushes into the room.

Maria begins to beg for her life, saying that she hasn't said anything. Teresa is attacked from behind by Maria's son and presses a knife to her throat. Teresa tells her that she's not here to hurt her, that people are coming to hurt her. Maria says that they are not like them, and to let her go. The son, Angel, releases Teresa and steps to his mother's side. Teresa reports that there are people coming for her. Maria begins to cry because she hasn't said anything. Teresa says she believes her, but all these people care about is that she's a threat to them because she saw Teresa's face. Teresa says that she wants to help her, and that she has to go back to her family in Durango, because if she doesn't, they will find her and her son. Maria is sobbing because she left Durango to get away from all this, and she built a life for her son. Angel hugs his mom as she cries. Teresa glances up as she begins to cry, chastising them for wasting time.


James meets up with Leon. Leon asks about the Jimenez cartel. James says he'll call his boss and look into it. As he turns to leave, Leon says that there was also a maid who might be able to identify someone. James turns back at this, because Teresa was that maid that interacted with Talky John, covering and saying that he'll ask about the maid too. Leon says that he'll give James a beat to work on this, but after that, he's taking matters into his own hands. James tells him that he won't have to and promises that they'll figure this out.

Maria's apartment building[]

James talking to Maria's neighbor.

James parks in the same spot Teresa had in front of Maria's house and places a silencer on his gun, tucking it under his jacket. He notices a security camera as he's entering the building. He asks a man in the building if he's seen Maria Sanchez, lying and saying that they're friends from work and he was worried about her when she didn't show up. The man doesn't seem to believe him and tells him that he hasn't seen her, then that she's out running errands and might be a couple hours. James notices a girl playing with a cat. He asks her if the cat is hers, and she says that it is now since Maria gave it to her. James asks when Maria left and the girl shrugs and walks away from him.

James opens the door to Maria's apartment and looks around, gun ready. The closet has been emptied.

James knocks on the door of the man he spoke to earlier, raising his gun to the peephole. The man opens the door and James forces his way inside, asking where Maria went. He swears he doesn't know, but Maria and Angel left with some woman. James asks if it was a policewoman and he says he doesn't know, only that she had dark hair and was pretty. James says that maybe the cameras will remember more and shoves him toward his computer, where he sees footage of Teresa leaving with Maria. James places a call to the warehouse asking if Teresa is there. The Charger is watching over Tonto while two girls clean blood off of the floor and the chair he had been in. He goes to look and reports that Teresa isn't inside and her car is gone. James orders him to turn on the LoJack.

He says that he doesn't care about the cartel, just the men that killed his brothers. He asks her for a name.

  • Life is for the living. Now pull yourself together. We have work to do. - Camila to Teresa
  • Look at your little birdbrain doing these little birdbrain calculations. You see, Eric, there's things you know, and things you don't know, and then, there's things you don't even know you don't know. -Camila to Eric
  • You see, Jaime, all my life, men have underestimated me. I've grown used to it. See, most men are very basic creatures. They can't seem to see beyond my legs. So sometimes I use that to my advantage and others, I just depend upon it. -Camila to Jamie
