Stillman rolled up behind the wreckage, pinning the Honda from behind. The pair exited their car and surrounded the Honda from both sides. “GET OUT OF THE CAR! GET OUT OF THE CAR!” Stillman shouted. He and Darius stepped toward the wreckage with weapons ready as Trent slowly began to emerge from behind the airbag that had deployed during the crash.

The airbags on Vera and Miller’s car had activated as will. Slowly came to and noticed her partner not moving. She began trying to violently shake him awake. “Vera! Vera, can you hear me?”

“Yes!” Vera shouted as started to wake up. “My leg hurts like hell though; I don’t think I can stand!”

Miller exited through the passenger door careful to step around the broken glass as she approached Stillman. “Get the paramedics down here; Vera’s injured!” Trent gradually started to exit his vehicle. Miller approached with her weapon drawn. “DOWN ON THE GROUND!”

Trent exited his car and looked around at all of the police officers surrounding him. “I would think twice about running again if I was you!” said another face that Trent soon locked eyes with. It was Don Larken.

“Assaulting my partner, trying to run a roadblock, not exactly the actions of an innocent man! I’d say you’re looking pretty good for your friend’s murder!” insisted Stillman.

“I didn’t kill Chuck!” Trent replied.

“Why should you believe you? We know Chuck tried to set you up! First he tried to wimp out of that meth drop that you were both supposed to do, and then he left you holding both bags!” Darius responded.

“His car broke down on him; I had to take that second bag!” insisted Trent.

“Suddenly, you feeling like talking! What if we told you that Chuck asked ‘Cherry’ to make that breakdown happen? He set you up, Trent!” Darius added.

“Some setup, even if that was true! I didn’t exactly get busted that night!” Trent informed.

“Yeah, in fact you were an official Black Star after that; your dashboard started out with two drill marks!” Stillman responded.

“We know you pulled a gun on Chuck once! What happened, he got pissed off at you figuring that one of those holes was his? So you challenge him to a race across the bridge and pull your gun on him again!” Darius asked.

“You two were rivals from way back; you were tired of Chuck getting in your way!” Miller intervened.

“I didn’t shoot Chuck!” insisted Trent.

“That’s just it; Chuck wasn’t shot!” Stillman replied.

“We found his old Chevy at the bottom of the river too! How else do you think we knew about ‘Mach 3’?” asked Miller.

Trent sighed. “You mentioned ‘Torch’, and I panicked. I thought maybe he was turning on me.”

“Danny Eurich. Trent, he’s locked up; he won’t be seeing anyone for a long time. You’re saying he wanted Chuck dead?” asked Miller.

“The crew was getting picked apart by the cops; ‘Torch’ got really fixated on Chuck when he found that police scanner in his car. He was convinced that Chuck was a cop, and, frankly, I didn’t know what was going on either. That’s why I agreed to help,” Trent explained.

“You helped Danny kill your friend, but you weren’t the shooter,” Stillman added.

“No, I was the tail…”

“’Torch’—Danny—wanted me to drive his car during the night. ‘They should eventually hit S Front St. There’s an alley near the I-95 interchange. Once they hit that, I want you to follow them until they hit the Ben Franklin. That’s where it should go down,’ Torch explained.

“’I get it, but remind me again why I have to use your bucket instead of my ride?’ I asked.

“’Because if the shooter gets any doubts, I want them to know that I’m watching them. I don’t know if that’s your gun or not—‘

“’It’s not,’ I told him.

“’Whatever, it will help us tonight. After this, I’ll finally know who I can trust around here,’ Danny responded.

“’Are you talking about ‘Mach 3’ or me?’ I asked.

“’We threw your ass back out on the street, and yet you were to come back. No, right now, I don’t trust you. Make sure that this goes down, and you’ll be a full blown partner too,’ Danny informed. I shook his hand, reluctantly accepting his terms. Like I said, I didn’t know if Chuck had turned either.”

“Ironic, this is just about where his car was pushed into the river,” Trent added.

“So you just watched your friend get wacked?” asked Darius.

“It wasn’t my proudest moment, but I hadn’t seen him for a while after I lost out the first time. That scanner he had made me suspicious too; I didn’t know if I could trust him anymore,” Trent replied.

“Who was the shooter?” asked Stillman.

“Stillman,” Miller called out as she approached him. “Lilly sent out a message a while ago; apparently her FBI contact came through. It appears both Charles Weisman and Andy Rickon both have legitimate Social Security numbers, and look at the date for when the Rickon was issued.”

Stillman took Miller’s phone. “’June 7, 1989’, the same as on the license we found. There’s only a few select groups of people who have the power to do something like that. Danny was right; there had to have been a rat in the cage.”

“I think we found that rat too,” Miller said as she touched her screen to bring up a photograph. “Apparently the FBI had been doing recon on the Black Stars for some time before they sent one of their people inside. Does this picture look familiar to you?”

Stillman looked at the picture and threw up his hands. “You’ve got to be kidding me, another alias?”

Lilly and Scotty met Carmen outside of the Essington Avenue Honda dealer. “Detectives. Whatever you need, make it fast. I’m on a lunch break.”

“We just thought we would tell you that we think we know what happened to Chuck,” Scotty explained.

“It turns out the crew was right to paranoid. Somebody was working them from the inside,” Lilly added.

Carmen froze. “There was a cop in the crew?”

“Not quite. It turns out that the bullet recovered from Chuck’s tire matched a 10mm handgun; that’s never been a standard police weapon. But as it turns out, in 1989 it had just become the standard issue weapon for FBI agents,” Lilly explained.

Scotty pulled a photograph from the file he was carrying. It was of the Rickon license. “Do you recognize that name?” Carmen shook her head.
“That’s surprising since it’s practically your name.”

Lilly started reading a report from her phone. “’March 10, 1988: FBI office in Philadelphia agrees to sign off on a deep cover operation to investigate a group of underground street racers known as the Black Star Racers. The goal of this operation is to examine any alleged connections between the Black Star Racers and the crystal methamphetamine trafficking network of reputed Mexican drug lord Filipe Marquez. The agent selected to be placed in the field: Andrea Recona.’, and there’s a note written next to that name that says ‘Risky.’ But I am more interested in this photograph they have on record for her.” She turned a page in the file revealing Carmen’s picture. “Look familiar?”

“You’re Andrea Recona, otherwise known as Andy. Carmen the mechanic; I have to admit, that was clever. I wish I could have done something like that,” Scotty added.

“What?”

“For what it’s worth I’m the last person who should judge. I worked undercover for narcotics once. It was a simple enough smuggling operation until I got a little too close to one of the girls who was muling for the crew. Due to my mistakes and a few things outside of my control; she was eventually killed,” Scotty informed. “It can be a seductive world when you’re under cover. Sometimes, it’s hard to remember whose side you’re really on?”

“That would explain why you left the bureau in 1990,” Lilly added.

Andrea sighed. “Too many of the racers were getting busted for possession, and nobody was flipping. Marquez got spooked and stopped using them. Soon there was no more crew, and no more operation. What are you going to do?”

“As someone who has been in your shoes, I don’t want to do anything. But Chuck’s death didn’t just affect you,” Scotty insisted.

“He had family back in New Jersey, Andrea. One of them came forward, his brother. It seems they used to race together, and he’s spent the last 23 years thinking that Chuck abandoned him for the big city. He deserves some answers,” Lilly added.

“We also know you weren’t the only one involved in this. We have others in custody for the death of Chuck Weisman. If you testify against them, we might be able to help you with the FBI,” Scotty explained.

Andrea shook her head. “That would be ironic, wouldn’t it?”

“How is that?”

“I promised the same thing to Chuck. You said you worked in narcotics; then you know how narcotics works. It’s not enough to bust the junkies and the dealers; the cartel just replaces them. You have to get the suppliers, the people who supply them, the people who supply them, and the people who supply them going higher and higher up in the food chain before you can even get close to the top man. You have one body? I had hundreds of mangled, charred, mutilated, decapitated corpses! There’s a reason why they call Felipe Marquez ‘the butcher of Juarez’, and he’s still out there!

“We couldn’t get anyone to flip on the supplier for over a year; that’s why I took a calculated risk and told Chuck who I was. I thought we could help each other,” Andrea explained.

“Because you didn’t have to flip him,” Lilly added.

“He didn’t want anything to do with the meth; he just liked to race. I didn’t know how he would react when I told him that he would have to give that up once in witness protection,” Andrea informed. “My supervisor and I came up with a plan to save him. But ‘Torch’ had a plan too.”

“Danny Evans?” Lilly asked.

“The race that night was his idea, and I thought I could control the situation. But Danny had other tricks up his sleeve, and I had to make a tough choice…”

Cold Case Soundtrack: “Forever Blue” www.youtube.com/watch?v=es66B6MU5XU

“We met behind our crew’s garage a few nights after that last delivery. We were about to begin Chuck’s final race, but I took a few minutes with him to review some things. ‘You understand the plan, right? They need to think that you are dead, so when we hit the bridge I shoot out your tire. You will need to decrease your speed once we hit the bridge. The car goes over the bridge and sinks into the river before I have time to reach you. Traffic should be minimal at this time of the night so the risk of witnesses should be low.’

“Chuck froze solid to the floor. ‘I’m still reeling from finding out your name is really Andrea, but I think I get it,’ he said pulling the new license that we had printed for him out of his pocket. ‘Although, I’m not too crazy about this new identity you came up with. ‘Gary, Indiana’? Do I really look like Indiana to you?’

“’We had to get you as far away from anyone who might recognize you as we could,’ I explained. ‘You do understand what you are giving up. Charles Weisman doesn’t exist after tonight. Once you are in witness protection, you cannot tell anyone where you are; you would only be putting yourself and them at risk. Secondly, when we call on you to testify against Marquez or any of his subordinates, you need to be ready. Thirdly, and I cannot stress this enough, you are not a street racer anymore. If you commit a felony while in witness protection, the FBI cannot protect you anymore.’

“’I get it, and you don’t need to worry. ‘Mach 3’ no longer exists. After what I’ve seen, I think I’m ready to hang up my keys,’ Chuck replied.

“’That leaves me with one last detail,’ I said as I headed back into the garage. I returned shortly with my cordless power drill. ‘I’m going to need your key.’ Chuck was slow to react to this request, but he returned the license to his shirt pocket and retrieved his car keys. I opened the passenger door of his blue Chevy and drilled one last hole in his dashboard.

“What was that about?’ Chuck asked.

“I pulled him in close to me and kissed him one last time. I didn’t realize at the time just how ominous my next statement really was. ‘I just gave you your 50th hole. It seemed fitting since I’m going to lose tonight.’ We separated. I entered. I entered my white Ford; he entered his blue Chevrolet and we started our engines. His last race had begun.

“We started picking up speed as we hit the streets. We remained side by side for most of the race. Then we hit S Front St. and turned on to I-95. I started to slow down allowing Chuck to pass me on my right side. I slipped in behind him to get in a better position as we were about to make the right turn onto the bridge.

“I started gaining some ground on Chuck once we hit the bridge. So I slowed down to reach for my gun and line up my shot. We were about midway through the bridge. He was still moving a little too fast for my liking, but we were running out of time and space so I fired. A second bang could be heard as the bullet struck his left rear tire. Chuck’s car jumped upward suddenly and started skidding to the right. Chuck frantically tried to apply the brakes, but forward momentum kept him going until the car hopped over the edge of the bridge taking out part of the suspension.

“The front of the car was hanging over the edge of the bridge. I slammed the brakes of my car and started to run to him shouting, ‘Chuck!’

“I looked into Chuck’s window when I reached him. I saw him moving inside the car; it was slowly but I still figured this was a good sign. I punched out the window and yelled, ‘Chuck, open the door and take my—‘ That’s when I turned around and noticed a pair of headlights coming slowly towards us from behind. Then just stopped, and I could see the silver hood and then the Black Star logo across the rear window.

“It was Danny’s car. I slowly realized that this race had been his idea. He had either been following me, or he had me followed. Either way I had a choice to make. Do I blow my cover and try to save Chuck, or do I try to get them to trust me in the hopes of getting closer to Marquez? In the end, Marquez’s graphic statistics won out. It’s a choice I’ve questioned for a long time.

“Chuck gradually started to open the door, but when he reached out his hand for mine he found that it was gone. He clung precariously to the door and craned his neck to look for me. That’s when he saw me pushing the car from behind. ‘What are you doing? This wasn’t the plan! We had a DEEEEEEEEEEALLLL!’

“The door came off the hinges as the car went over the edge. It turned over on its left side sending up what looked like a small geyser as it hit the water. Chuck must have gotten trapped under the wreckage. I watched as the car sank to the bottom of the river, and Chuck did not return. Then I turned to face the headlights in a fit of rage. ‘Are you happy now you bastard! It’s done!’

At the Benjamin Franklin bridge crash site, the paramedics loaded Nick Vera on to a stretcher and placed him in an ambulance. John Stillman put Trent Yardley in handcuffs. He would be charged with conspiracy to commit a homicide.

Any deals pending with Danny Eurich now having been nullified, the alarm sounded at Graterford prison as two guards escorted him through the prison gates in chains. He was escorted to a police van for transport to the Waynesburg Supermaximum Security facility.

Two cars were lined up on the track at Speedsafe Raceway. Brian ‘Slick’ Taylor was about to start the race when Kat Miller and Don Larken approached him. They explained to him about the moments leading up to the death of his friend.

Back at the station Lilly Rush and FBI agent Ryan Cavanaugh watched as Andrea Recona signed off on her confession. As this concerned a prior FBI operation, Lilly handed her over to FBI custody. Her fate was now in their hands.

Scotty placed a copy of Andrea Recona’s confession into a large, brown box. He then sealed the box and slapped an address label on it. The information inside was to be sent to the police in Camden, New Jersey. Then he headed for the conference room where Bradley Weisman, who Scotty had called in earlier, had been waiting. He explained the events leading to his brother’s death. Then Bradley looked through the glass door at the ghost of his brother before he faded from view.

AFTER THE SHOW

I do not really have much to say this time around. You may recall me saying a few episodes back that there are some episodes that I am more proud of than others. I wanted to be proud of this episode. This idea sounded so much better in my head than in actual execution. It wound up being another case of throwing stuff at the wall and seeing what stuck. I would like to think an actual undercover operation would have been a little more organized than this.

I am a big computer gamer, and, if nothing else, I hope this serves as a lesson to the creators at "Need for Speed", "Grand Tourismo", "Forza", "The Crew", and other game franchises. STOP TRYING TO GIVE RACING GAMES A STORY! Convoluted, blown up messes like this are what happens when you try to give street racing a story!

I guess I can do some notes about the music. First off, I messed up one of the songs again, though it was not quite as bad in this case. Frida's "I Know There's Something Going On" was released in 1982. This is outside of my two year range, but at least it was in the earlier direction this time as opposed to the later direction which happened in a few previous episodes. For my bookend songs, I went with Motley Crue's "Kickstart My Heart" because it was a pure adrenaline rush. The term kickstart might be more applicable to motorcycles than cars, but this seemed like a good adrenaline rush to start off an episode about street racers. I went with Bon Jovi's "Blaze of Glory" at the end because Chuck was effectively an outlaw and that last race was his last stand.

This took longer than I thought it would, but there it is. You are now officially caught up.
