Life: Not For Nothing

A university’s prison experiment goes horribly wrong when one of the students acting as a corrections officer ends up dead. Crews and Reese are in a race against the clock to find the killer. As they interview both prisoners and guards, the detectives discover the social experiment may have done more damage than good. Meanwhile, determined to figure out Jack Reese’s connection to his case, Crews obsesses over a recording he obtained from a wiretap he placed on Reese.

Episode Quotes
Kevin: Who is Abby?
Detective Henry Villanon: My wife, leaving me. This is the first time I am saying it outloud.
Kevin: Wife number?
Detective Henry Villanon: 1, and only. I just want her back.
Kevin: I got this, guys. Yeah, the first one is the toughest. That's the one that usually leaves you.

Detective Henry Villanon: She was the best thing that've ever happened to me.
Kevin: No, she wasn't. She was the first.

Bobby: Look detectives, I am no detective, but I gonna ask. Who exactly is the killer ?

Charlie: The first three years will be the hardest. But because you are in there, doesn't mean that you have to BE there. You can go somewhere else.
