Earl "Mad Dog" Jonas, a criminal who Charlie arrested eight years previously for committing a payroll heist at Stanford, and whom vowed revenge against Charlie, is released from prison. Charlie's old friend Captain Rios puts Charlie under police protection, but when Jonas is murdered Charlie becomes the main suspect in the case. While the police focus on Charlie, he decides to investigate Jonas' murder himself. Charlie visits Jonas' girlfriend at home, and while he is talking to her, she is shot dead through a window from the street. The following night, Charlie is shot at while driving home and embarks on a car chase until the shooter crashes his car into an telephone pole and explodes. Charlie uncovers phone records of Rios's lawyer son Guillermo making calls to Mad Dog's and his girlfriend's killer, and confronts Captain Rios with the information, claiming that Mad Dog owed Guillermo money from when Mad Dog robbed the payroll truck with help from an inside man at Stanford – security officer William Rivers, aka Guillermo Rios. Charlie realizes that eight years ago the Captain persuaded Mad Dog to take the fall alone for the heist to protect his son. Charlie convinces the Captain to do the right thing and turn himself and his son in.
