Saxe’s Obsession With Catching Ghost Gets Him In Trouble
Cooper Saxe wants to put Ghost in jail really bad. He is so hell-bent on his mission that he is willing to ignore clear clues that indicate that Ghost didn’t kill Angela. Even after Blanca carefully explained to him how Ghost couldn’t have been the one to fatally shoot Angela. Even with all of the information, Saxe is still reaching to the high heavens to somehow involve Ghost in the murder of Angela Valdez despite the evidence clearly suggesting he didn’t.
His Ghost obsession, plus his sneaky moves, will get him in trouble though. During a meeting with Dre, he plays dirty by trying to squeeze info out of his informant by giving him a glimpse of his crying daughter in a truck. Dre doesn’t tell Saxe how Ghost knew where Maria Suarez was, but he does reveal that his boss was having a conversation with Tommy’s connect Jason.
That doesn’t really impress Saxe, and he instructs Dre to “dig deeper.” He has to run back to the office after receiving a text message from his boss telling him to come in.
Warner is absolutely pissed that Saxe was making all of these moves without telling him. He is singularly perturbed about Maria Suarez switching her story and Saxe sending in the FBI agents to unsuccessfully nab Ghost. Warner also reveals that Saxe’s cooperating informant, Proctor’s ex-wife, Lindsay has died from an overdose and that Joe was the one who called it in. Warner decides to go pay Proctor a visit so he can salvage whatever case they may have left. Saxe asks if he can accompany him and we all know why, so he can grab the illegal bug he had Lindsay plant on her daughter’s book bag to listen in on Proctor’s conversations.
Saxe hasn’t been able to get that smoking gun he’s needed to nail Ghost, but he definitely got something juicy on the recording device that could possibly help him inch towards his goal.
