Previously, on The Bridge: “The Eyes Have It”
Marco and Sonya
It’s morning; Sonya is sitting at her laptop working on the case. Marco is in the kitchen, shirt partially unbuttoned, unshaven with tasseled hair. Is there hanky-panky afoot? No. Marco is crashing at Sonya’s pad until he can get his shit together. Sonya heads off to work, and Marco goes home in effort to make amends with his wife.
Marco is desperately trying to get back in the good graces with Alma. She is not having it. And is he hard of hearing? Did she not say under any uncertain terms that she does not want him talking to her? Alma tells him to go be a father to his son because he is flunking out of college. BURN. To add insult to injury the next time we see Mrs. Ruiz she is getting ready to bump uglies with her co-worker at the local No-tell Motel.
Tampa Bay Ray Manages 2 Tunnels
Ray meets up with Graciela to go over the terms of their agreement. He climbs into the back of her SUV. He wants to move some weapons, she agrees, and starts getting undressed. He is expected to pay her in sexual favors. Ray barely balks at the idea because money is money and he does not care how he gets it. Even if that means having a 60-year-old woman’s thighs wrapped around your ears.
Charlotte meets up with Cesar to pay him his salary and cut of the tunnel money. She asks him again if this is the right thing. He tells her it is the only option and that she shouldn’t trust Ray.
Later in the evening while getting her back re-aligned by Ray on her deceased husband’s desk. In between strokes she asks Ray if she can trust him. He says yes. She says OKAY.
Can we just call her the Sookie of El Paso?
