  • Solid Episode with a bit of humor.

    Good, Solid episode. We did not see Colby Granger or Amita Ramanujan in this episode. We learn in this episode that Liz Warner is leaving the unit for Denver and the supervision of the Organized Crimes Unit.

    The opening statistics are: 5,800 2 Trillion Pairs Made Per Minute Lacing Variations 4 30,000 Steel Shanks Stitches Story opens with a pair of stolen sneakers called, "the 2K Primers" from the Brazilian Consul that were bought at auction for $250K. As the story unfolds there are many parties that want the shoes. The first is DJ Bit O' Nutz, who sent emails to Consul Nespola and La-La Buendia over the auction of the Primers. A man is found dead with a single Primer sneaker on, who later is found to be Albanian. Meanwhile Liz and Charlie find a match on the MO from the consulate heist, buy a man named Stephanois. La-La Buendia needs the auction commission for seed money for to open a place for making shoes that are affordable and bring business back into the area. After investigation, the team finds a sweat shop where "2K Primers", were being made. The real sneakers are suspected to be in the ones found in the warehouse. Charlie uses a machine at the university to try and determine which pair out of the fake shoes are the real ones and none are real. Lee Diddums is the man suspected in the murder of the Albanian man. Diddums is apprehended and a phone number is found on his hand. When it is called the phone on the other end is DJ Bit O' Nutz. Don and Nikki promptly go to his home and arrest him for being the original one who paid to have the shoes stolen.

    The shows are stolen form Bit O' Nutz are and end up back with the original owner, Consul Nespola. The FBI wants the shoes and when Nespola goes to get them they are gone. His son had found them and put them on and started shooting hoops; Nespola is saddened because he no longer has the shoes for his collection, but grateful to see his son happy with the shows.

    In the end Liz decides to stay with Don's team.
