Teresi Makes Gets Closer To Tommy
Teresi is under tons of pressure to find some dirt on his son and Ghost. Last week, he enlisted the help of his best friend Sammy after an intense situation where Vinny made the former “stand up guy” choose between his son or his friend as a form of punishment. Newly changed man Ghost stops by Tommy’s apartment and is surprised at the sight of his former jailmate Teresi being there.
Ghost asks Teresi to excuse them so they can talk but Tommy insists whatever Ghost has to say to him can be mentioned in front of his so-called father. Ghost reveals to his brother that he can no longer wash his money in the club because Tate revealed to him that the feds are auditing him. Any hints of drug money could put an end to the Queens Child Project. Teresi is soaking all of this in and quickly runs to Mak and Saxe with the new information he overheard.
Teresi wants the two thirsty prosecutors to relax because the audit will blow his cover and get him killed. He insists they let him continue to work on Tommy so he can lure in the big fish. They reluctantly agree but warn him that time is running short and they won’t hesitate to throw him back in the clink.
To “help” his son Teresi introduces a new way for Tommy to move his product by putting it inside packages of ramen noodles. The plan is to push the products in jail, it’s a foolproof way for both Teresi and Sammy to make money and at the same time help him deliver the goods to Mak and Saxe. Tommy loves the plan but has no idea what his dad is planning behind his back. Or does he?
Dre Is Trying To Get Things Under Control
All season long Dre has been learning it’s not easy being the boss. He has to deal with insubordination, and his drug suppliers the Jimenez Cartel are proving to be dangerous. Last week Diego visited Dre and was upset about the feds finding his tacky gold gun. He doesn’t say it, but he felt Dre or someone in his crew planted the weapon setting him up. Unbeknownst to him, it was his sister that set up him and is trying to get rid of her crazy brother.
Dre is entirely paranoid about his Spanish-speaking cohorts mainly Cristobal and his crew that Kanan has been taking out one by one. He decides to enlist the help of the new leader of the Toros Locos gang Arturo to help him translate what they are saying. When speaking to Arturo, Dre learns that Alicia is the one who could have possibly set him up. Arturo who is not one of the shows brightest characters slips up by saying he heard Diego and Alicia got arrested. Taking this new information he tells Arturo to be at the meeting with the Jimenez in an hour, Dre also finds himself a new scapegoat in Arturo as well.
After making a deal with Ghost to get his job and club back he made the deal to take out Ghost’s problem if his former boss did the same for him. At the meet with Alicia, he tells her that Arturo is the one who snitched on them and Arturo reveals that Diego knows he was set up by his sister. He brings up that idea to Alicia that there is a plan to take out Diego without even mentioning the fact the person who is going to help cancel Christmas on Diego is Ghost himself. Alicia agrees and gives the order to take out poor Arturo in the process.
