    Casino and Corny's Wires

    Casino and Corny's Wires

    To record their last podcast episode of the season, the agents gather at Casino's house for coffee. The agents get an update from Bobby on his mental health, and the standard therapy he's done with Casino. Kettle then opens up about getting plastic surgery to make him look like an amalgamation of Dexter and Corny for his new undercover look. Casino plays a tape from her French/Jewish wedding day with the alleged murderer Chef Luc, which involved confessions, gunshots, cigarettes, stereotypes, wedding vows, and poems. The agents ask for their wedding gifts back. Lastly, Corny plays his recording, which captured his discussion with the Nature's Sunshine CEO Lula Pew and her two strange board members. This tape was weird. Kettle offers a toast to the season, then he and Corny leave Bobby and Casino to their safewords....

    Kettle's Wire

    Kettle's Wire

    At an underground coffeeshop, punk baristas bully the agents for being uncool. Kettle shares a clip from the wire he wore at a Blue Lives Matter meeting, which turns out to be populated by a mix of Southern and Australian people. On the wire, we hear Kettle's double-undercover character tell the police supporters what the Black Lives Matters protesters are saying (to their dismay).  Kettle has another tape of an exciting hostage-taking moment, but it's in his car, so instead the agents audition to play the parts. Lastly, the other agents give their updates: Bobby's in therapy with Casino for his PTSD; Chef Luc's new signature dish is a wedding cake, and he's marrying Casino (in a brown dress and fishnets) next Tuesday; and Nature's Sunshine has both a booster shot available, and a line of condoms that raise the risk of pregnancy. Then, right before the agents leave the shop, a man with a gun bursts in, and all hell breaks loose....

    Will We Get in Trouble?

    Will We Get in Trouble?

    At a homey, Southern coffeeshop, the agents hop into high seats and chat about Brazilian butt lifts. Then, Corny asks for help dealing with an investigation into the Nature's Sunshine vaccine, which Kettle got (along with some of the side effects). That leads the agents to a scary question: will they be prosecuted for crimes committed while undercover? Kettle shares his experience being sent to Rikers after his last undercover mission, and the others apologize for not visiting.  Bobby then updates the agents on Sw33tgr33n, and they sidebar without him to confer about his amnesia/denial. At a loss for how to help him, the agents give Bobby a little hug, and then carry him back to the office.

    The Essence of Coffee at Caribou

    The Essence of Coffee at Caribou

    At an unusually pretentious Caribou Coffee, the agents have to barter for regional coffee from Gardenia, the barista; luckily Corny, has Nature's Sunshine butt spray to trade. Once they're settled, Bobby fields a call on Tony's phone from someone demanding money. Kettle shares the logistical struggles of coordinating a disaster between the two BLMs. Casino reveals that she said "oui" to Chef Luc's proposal, but found something disturbing in his bathtub. Also, Tony seems to be using Bobby's badge to steal drugs, keeping Bobby out of the action with a ruse. Last, Gardenia returns to complain about the spray.
