When Vic finds himself at odds with the Strike Team, he decides that the only way to bring down a gun running ring that is supplying rival gangs on the brink of war, is to use some cash from the Money Train. When the bust doesn't go down as expected and the Strike Team is overpowered by the Byz Lats, they find themselves out both the money and the guns. Just when Vic begins to plan drastic measures to bring down the Byz Lats and their supply of MP5's, Claudette and Dutch reveal a gang murder may be connected to the missing guns. The Strike Team works to settle the war between the two gangs, the Byz Lats and the One-Niners, by forcing the two leaders to draw battle lines. After Claudette and Dutch solve their gang murders, Vic is able to get the guns off the street. Claudette reveals to Vic that the undercover Decoy squad will be joining the Barn and she will be overseeing both them and the Strike Team. Julian's newfound confidence on the job raises some concerns around the Barn when a complaint is filed against him for excessive force. Danny returns to the barn when she gets her job back and finds that Julian isn't interested in being her partner anymore. Vic tries to correct the first impression he's made on Mara but she makes it clear she's only interested in Shane's wellbeing.
