Tonight’s episode should have been named ‘Sleepless Nights’ because all throughout the episode, no one can get a good night’s rest. We are almost certain it’s a theme that Courtney and ‘Em put together. But who can sleep with Tasha and Angela meeting face-to-face and then Tasha and Holly meet face-to-face and then an unexpected night-time threesome at the end.

Angela is confident the Feds will win their John Doe Witness Protection Program against Lobos, even without a witness. Mike, who is secretly working with Lobos, plays stupid with Angela and suggests that it’s not a good idea.

Tommy hasn’t told Holly that Belle (the dog) is dead so he encourages her to plaster the neighborhood with posters looking for Belle.
Jamie visits Tasha and thanks her for allowing the kids to meet Angela. Before Jamie leaves, he gives Tasha a check to give to Tommy which would close down all of the businesses and end their partnership for good. When Tasha, goes to visit Tommy she runs into Holly but the two butt heads immediately – until Holly sees how much the check is for. Tasha takes the check back and tells Holly to have Tommy reach out.
Julio questions Tommy as to why Lobos keeps delivering half the product and he suggests they cut it to make it stretch. Tommy objects to this idea and storms off because he knows the only way to Lobos will deliver all the product is to kill Ghost.
Tasha meets up with Keisha who is tripping that Tasha allowed Jamie to have a sleepover with the kids at Angela’s house. During their playful banter, Keisha notices Tasha’s wedding ring is gone. Tasha confides to Keisha that she sold the ring. Keisha questions if Tasha needs money, to which Tasha denies but the look on her face says otherwise.

As Jamie walks in, he can see that Dre is about to go street on DJ Taj and smoothes out the situation. Jamie tells Dre handle the contract between the club and the DJ. Instead of handling his job, Dre goes back to the block and meets up with his boys. Once his boys find out that Dre works at a club, they question him about how to rob it but Dre states that he doesn’t know the ins and outs just yet. His boys also question the whereabout of Kanan because no one has seen him in a while.
[MISTAKE: Despite being a “germaphobe”, DJ Taj touches Dre but won’t shake Jamie’s hand. Bad Courtney, bad.]
The Chinese Drug Cartel is upset that Tommy only delivered half of the shipment. One Chinese guy is upset at Tommy’s excuses however, the head of the organization is more forgiving. When Tommy ends with meeting with domo arigato, which means “thanks a lot” or “thank you very much” in – JAPANESE, the Chinese kid is offended but the elder appreciates the effort. They invite Tommy and Julio to stay for dinner and ‘services’ but Tommy passes.
“I got a lady and a pizza at home.”
Proctor can’t find Lobos through his connections, so he suggests that Lobos may be in hiding using the John Doe Prosecution. Procto suggests that Ghost question Angela to find out where Lobos is.
Tommy comes home and shows Holly the check that Tasha gave him. Holly offers to take it to the bank but Tommy says he will handle it. During her philacio duties with Tommy, Holly manages to slip the check into her possession.
Ghost finds out that DJ Taj will be spinning across the street because someone *cough* Dre *cough* didn’t get the contract signed.

Dre apologizes for not getting the contract signed BUT he tells Jamie that he’s not used to doing work – he’s from the hood.

Using all of his connections, Protector can’t find Lobos.

The kids exchange small talk with Angela. Jamie gets an unexpected call and tells Angela to play with the kids.
Tommy finally calls Jamie. Jamie wants to meet Tommy in person. Tommy suggests Brooklyn Bridge Park. Tommy positions himself in the shadows but can’t bring himself to pull the trigger. Tommy sends Jamie a text that he can’t make it.
While sleeping over at Angela’s house, Jamie’s son, Tarqui steals Angela’s gun.
Surprisingly, the inmate that Saxe identified gets stabbed just as Saxe reaches the prison. And of course Jamie isn’t in bed with her which puts more doubt in her mind.
Upset that he didn’t have the balls to kill his former partner, while Tommy is getting high on his own supply, one of his henchmen questions him causing Tommy to beat him to a bloody pulp. Julio looks on. Tommy tells Julio that it should have been Julio for talking to Ghost.
“Nobody better ever disrespect me again.” – Tommy
Tommy, spaced out of his mind, finally tells Holly that Bella isn’t missing but that Lobos killed the dog. Holly puts the battery in Tommy’s back and tells him, “If you can’t kill Ghost for yourelf Tommy, do it for me.”
Suddenly, a knock is heard on the door and Holly has some surprising news for Tommy. In walks Tasha like she’s a hood version of Olivia Pope.
“I hear you have a problem. Apparently, I can help.” – Tasha
So tell us, who do you think killed the hitter? Ghost? Lobos? or Mike?
