Stahl is ticked off because Woz hasn’t turned over any information on Julia Ayres. The case against Bianci falls apart when Judge Fowler throws out the evidence against him. Nava suspects the judge has been bought off.

Bianci and his goons corner Harlee in the elevator while leaving the courthouse. He wants to know who is ordering her and Woz to set him up, but she won’t tell him. He makes sure she knows that he knows where she lives.

Harlee figures out that Julia stole evidence during Hurricane Sandy and is using it to trade in favors. She made Judge Fowler’s DUI disappear, which is why he tossed out the evidence against Bianci.

All of Woz’s credit cards have been frozen by the FBI. In retaliation, Woz take the footage from the hidden camera in Stahl’s apartment and sends video of him and the prostitute he paid to act like Harlee to the judge and attorney’s in Stahl’s ongoing custody case for his son. Stahl then breaks into Harlee’s apartment and threatens her, telling her that nothing is off limits now.

Stahl sends Woz’s wife, Linda, the audio recording that makes it clear that Woz and Donnie were lovers. Woz attacks Stahl on the street and almost strangles him to death. He only stops when Harlee pulls her gone on him. He leaves Stahl alive, but tells Harlee that the world is crashing down around them all.
