Episode Summary

Episode 5

Fuentes is formally detained and questions are raised about his mother's identity. The police continue to search for Fuentes' garage and Gloria struggles to come to terms with the accusations made against Fuentes.
Clement continues with the complicated Christine Lelievre divorce and Karlsson is overjoyed, and a little unnerved, to be appointed Fuentes' lawyer. Clement believes that getting to know his client better will help his case; Karlsson is appalled at his approach to the law.
Roban's mother dies and his brother is keen to make up for lost time. Arnaud spies on Roban and sees some unusual behaviour. When the Villedieu case appears in the press, many suspect that Roban is responsible for the leak, but only Arnaud has proof. Machard continues to do battle with Roban, who is filmed announcing Fuentes is guilty, even before the hearing. Karlsson attempts to get the case dismissed due to Roban's bias, but she has to pay Patricia a visit first.
Tatiana disappears and the girls are convinced Nico is responsible. Mila soon replaces her as Nico's 'favourite.' When Tatania's body is found, the M.O. is similar to the other two murders; this creates a quandary for Berthaud: if Fuentes was in prison at the time of the third murder, is he the 'Butcher of Vilette', or is the killer still out there?
Berthaud's case suffers another blow when a procedural error results in the release of the prime suspect; however, Karlsson is once again overjoyed at Berthaud's humiliation. Gilous's decision to help Patricia buy drugs at the squat comes back to haunt him.
