Cold Case: Sanctuary

In 1998, Valens worked undercover on a high-profile drug case that is reopened and now he must face the demons that have been haunting him for the past eight years. Valens got too close to a lady friend that was being used as a drug mule and it might have cost her life. The entire squad is shocked to know that Valens went undercover and had never mentioned it to anyone, which casts an even darker cloud upon him.

Episode Quotes
Lily: (to Lt.) Narcotics says it's about a cold job.
Lt.: (to Lily) A drug mule killed in 98 Ana Castillo, number one suspect was her handler Ramiro.
Lily: (to Lt) The guy inside?

This is an unusual episode as not only does it cast partial blame on a main character, the episode supports a murder in order to complete an undercover case on the theory that the victum was doomed from the start. For a show that always ends on a righteous note, an interesting twist.
