Virgil is upset by the fire
After the fire started in the kitchens of the Senso, Virgile braves the flames to come to the aid of any victims trapped inside. But he only manages to put himself in danger, and Alix tries to help him. They are both pulled from the flames in extremis by the firefighters and come out safe and sound.
The next day, Elise comes to examine the rubble and question the two partners to find out if the fire could have had a criminal origin. She asks them if anyone might have wanted to go after the club, which makes Virgil laugh. He reveals to the police officer the targeted harassment campaign of which they have been victims for several days on the networks.
Inviting Virgile to make a statement at the police station, Elise is surprised that they did not file a complaint earlier for the messages because the two events could have a link. Little affected by the material damage, Virgile is simply relieved that there are no victims: the fire has stirred up painful memories in him.
Meanwhile, Johanna asks Sabine about her meeting the day before during their sports session. She saw her friend in good company, and she seemed to be having a good time. Sabine tells him that the man in question was called Maxime, and that he owns a chain of sports clubs. Johanna teases her by suggesting that she change her sports subscription and go and join her club so that she can meet him again.
For his part, Maxime finds Dimitri, worried about the Senso. As a partner, he fears that this incident, which occurred only a few weeks after its opening, could seriously compromise his future. His friend, on the other hand, is rather cheerful: he reveals to him that he has spent the evening with a charming woman whom he wishes to see again, while unaware that it is Dimitri’s former lover…
Florent loses his temper against Becker
As police investigations continue into the business of Mr. Verneuil, suspected of drug trafficking after a ton of cannabis was found hidden in one of his merchandise trucks, Akim and Alex discover while questioning Aurore Verneuil that her father bought a company car last year, but that his payment does not appear in the company’s accounts. In the interrogation room, Verneuil tries to justify himself: he paid in cash following cash flow problems after confinement. For Alex, this confirms the testimony of his assistant who saw a large envelope of banknotes in his office.
Having been attacked with a firearm following her statements, Carole Martinez is officially placed under witness protection status, and will have to remain hidden for several weeks until her attacker is identified.
Back in prison, Verneuil is again confronted with his fellow prisoner Moreau. The dealer then asks him if he has thought about his proposal to make an alliance with him in prison in order to protect his back. Verneuil remains silent.
At the police station, Florent pleads the cause of his client with Becker so that the charges against him are dropped, and that his company, put on hold during the investigation, is resumed now that judge Alphand has authorized the return of their computer equipment. Becker replies that as long as the investigators do their job, the employees cannot continue their activity.
Florent gets carried away: according to him, the employees of Verneuil Transports will find themselves unemployed without pay if the activity does not resume, and the accusations against his client are based on simple declarations. Undaunted, Becker summons him to calm down, and takes his leave of him, reminding him that they will see each other the next evening at his firm’s anniversary cocktail party. Faced with the amazed look of the lawyer, he specifies that his ex-wife Claudine insisted that he be present.
