Dog's business is booming, so Da Kine Bail Bonds is taking over the office next door. Beth, in charge of interior design, wants to surprise Dog, so she makes him wait in the old office while the crew sets-up the new space including vibrating chairs, plasma TVs, and nine photos of Beth!  With the finishing touches complete, Beth gives Dog the grand tour,  but instead of admiring their work, he immediately wants to begins a new hunt! Although worn out from the morning's labors, the team grudgingly agrees to start a new case. The target for today is Federico. He's being revoked for missing court dates on a small time drug charge and generally running amuck. But when Leland pulls his rap sheet he makes a startling discovery.  Freddy is no small time prep, he's done time in the federal pen for bank robbery. Dog and the crew know that anyone "brave enough and crazy enough" to pull a bank job can be a dangerous man. So when they get a lead that Freddy is sleeping in his car they spring into action in the hope of catching him napping. As the team silently approaches his car, Dog slowly opens the driver's side door. It is the click on the cuffs around his wrists that rouses Freddy from his slumber and into a violent confrontation with the team. Only later does Dog discover that beneath Freddy's tough exterior, is a deeply vulnerable man.
