Friday August 20 in Un Si Grand Soleil …
Lucille decides to investigate Thierry Valois
Becker tells Janet that Abu, her young undocumented patient, has no memory of what happened before her fall. Janet then points out to her companion that this amnesia must fix the police well. She is convinced that Abu has no memory problem and that he is only claiming to have amnesia because he is afraid to tell a cop that another cop has hurt him. Commissioner Becker did not appreciate this remark so much and ended the discussion after recalling that it was up to the IGPN to conduct the investigation, and no one else.
Before leaving for work, Akim apologizes to Lucille for his behavior the day before. Lucille doesn’t blame him anymore. She realizes that her boyfriend doesn’t want to talk about work when he comes home and even offers to stop talking about work all weekend. But once Akim leaves, the young journalist makes a call to obtain information on Brigadier Thierry Valois.
At the hospital, Janet tries to convince Abou to talk. She adds that she knows a policeman whom he can trust. But the undocumented youth continues to swear that he remembers nothing.
Although he learned from Yann that Abou visibly does not remember anything, Thierry turns to a colleague, Patrick, who is part of a police union. The latter reassures him and gives him his support. According to him, even if Abu did start to speak, his testimony would not weigh heavily.
Thierry then shares the good news to Akim: even if the IGPN is looking for lice, they will have the support of the union and risk nothing. Thierry would like to introduce Akim to Patrick and tries to persuade him to be unionized too. By highlighting in particular the fact that his future tenure would only be a formality if he was part of a union. He would be sure to be taken. But Akim wants to achieve it on his own, because he will have deserved it.
At the same time, Lucille begins her own investigation and visits Stan, Anissa’s ex. Lucille promises not to mention her name in her article and Stan confides to her that Thierry has dirty methods. According to him, he is a vicious cop who does not hesitate to strike and threaten to have his suspects accused wrongly in order to achieve his ends. He assures that Thierry’s place should be in prison.
At the police station, Becker talks with Aline Roux, the IGPN investigator in charge of the case. For once, he admits to not being unhappy to see her. Indeed, if one of his men crossed the red line, he wants to know it.
Maryline convinces David to reconsider his testimony
Florent obtains a parlor for Maryline with Colette Genton. He confides to Maryline that Colette is not doing well. She blames herself and does not want to defend herself. The lawyer therefore asks Maryline to speak to Colette to try to reason with her. According to him, his testimony could allow him to escape the maximum sentence and to speak loudly and clearly to all battered women.
Later, Maryline, who feels compassion and needs to get answers about Colette Genton’s behavior, goes to the visiting room and listens to the latter’s explanations. Colette explains to him that she had no intention of killing her husband at first. She just wanted to scare him with threatening letters. But he didn’t care, and the letters subsequently sent to the other witnesses did not change that.
So Colette realized that she would never have the upper hand and decided to kill her husband. It was, according to her, the only solution to get her through. When Maryline asks her if she really intended to kill David, the nurse she almost crushed, Colette Genton assures us that she simply wanted to remove suspicion. For Maryline, Colette does not deserve to spend her life in prison. Not after what her husband did to her. So she promises not to let her down.
Back home, Maryline receives a visit from David. She asks him not to overload Colette during his trial because, in the end, she did not want to kill him. And then, Maryline adds that it would be a nice gesture in memory of Lila. After all, they didn’t …
