Summary Edit

The chapter opens up on May 10, 2014 at 10:04:08 in Los Angeles, California. Oz is in a neighborhood outside of where he should be. When questioned about this by fellow officer Rodney Balascoe, he explains he is currently on his way to Santa Rosalia Drive to get something to eat. He invites Balascoe to join him but Balascoe refuses, saying he only eats what he brings from home because he fears getting shot if he eats in a public area. As the two of them talk, they are joined in by another officer named Nyra Carlton. All three of them discuss a recent case.

Oz thinks shortly about Elaine, the USC professor with whom he has an on-and-off relationship. He then gets to speak to an apprehended criminal. Oz is unable to stay for long because he is supposed to meet with someone elsewhere. He assists Balascoe with his current case by piecing together a few bits of information then proceeds to leave the area. As he leaves, he thinks about a time when Elaine asked him if he would ever leave the city.

The chapter ends on May 10, 2014 at 10:30:38.
