Episode Summary

EDIT
Jean asks his old friend, Raballo, a former army captain, to join the organization to train a new girl. Motivated by some aid he would receive by the Military Police, Raballo agrees to instruct the girl, who he names Claes. His first attempt to train Claes at the shooting range doesn’t go that well, so he tries fishing, and Claes begins to feel some sort of bond with him. But after Claes gets involved in some dangerous situations, Raballo has second thoughts about what he’s gotten himself into.moreless

    • TRIVIA (3)

    • QUOTES (6)

      • Henrietta: I would die from loneliness if I didn't have José with me.

      • (Jose and Raballo decide not to recondition the girls following a near accident.)
        Raballo: I can't figure out a way to help them distinguish between friend and foe without redoing the conditioning process. Fighting violence with violence is all I know. It's what my entire career is based on. "Good soldiers read books." Huh, what a load.

      • (After Claes entered the subway station, two shots are heard.)
        Raballo: (holding mike) Alfonso, Claes has made contact. Keep the police off our backs for a while.

      • (Claes and Raballo are fishing.)
        Claes: You know this is so different from anything else I've experienced so far. I think I like being a fisherman.
        Raballo: Understand that I don't care about you. All you are to me is a job, nothing more. The only thing I care about is returning to the Military Police.

      • Jean: Great. Now your first job as a handler is to give her a name.
        Raballo: Wait. Do I have to give her a girl's name?
        Jean: No, it doesn't need to be a girl's name. You're free to name her whatever you'd like.
        Raballo: I suppose that would make the job more impersonal.
        Jean: Do whatever you need to feel comfortable.

      • Captain Lavarro: Jean what do you want from a retired man?
