The Shield: Grave

Vic's attempt to help a friend find a wayward teenager quickly turns into a nightmare when his fellow cops get caught in a shootout with the missing teen. Vic tracks down a drug dealer in the center of this case who may be linked to Antwon Mitchell (Anthony Anderson), the ex-convict gang banger turned 'community leader.' Vic also suspects that Shane and his new partner, Army, are cozying up to Antwon and his men. David Aceveda (Benito Martinez) spends his last day in the Barn trying to bury Vic for good. With his botched missing teen case and the revelation that he's failed in bringing down the Garage Sting, Vic's future at the Barn looks bleak. Monica steps in and offers Vic a second chance to get back on.

Vic: Shit.
Examiner: That a positive ID?
Vic: How did he die?

Episode Goofs
Vic was close enough to see Shane and the bangers in a short-scope pair of lenses, yet they couldn;t hear him slam the car door when he ran to help Shane?

Ronnie fires a gun twice in the area under the bridge. No one screams, no one runs, no one even seems to be looking at him?
