While Shane and Army are learning how to cheat the lie detector test that Monica has demanded they take, Vic decides that their best strategy is to go after the One-Niners and shake down anyone involved with the cop killings. With Antwon in jail, Vic and the team work two different bangers who each believe they may be the next leader of the One-Niners. Pitting them against each other, the Strike Team is able to gather information about the killings that lead them to a group of Nigerians. As they get closer to the killer, their search leads them to the house of a Nigerian suspect and the team discovers Russian mobsters holding the Nigerian's family hostage. Not far from the scene, the Nigerian is found by the local police who picked him up while he was fleeing the scene. During his interrogation, Monica and Vic discover that the murder may have been contracted out to the Nigerians from the Russians over a traffic violation that one of the cops gave to a Russian mob leader.
