Lucille questions Valois
Lucille approaches Valois near the police station. She explains to him that she is a journalist and that she wants to write an article on the police. At first suspicious, Valois agrees to answer his questions when she reveals to him that she is Akim’s girlfriend. Valois then spoke to him about his vocation, and the problems posed in his eyes by the French with an immigrant background in opposition to the “native” French.
When Lucille retorts that Akim and she too are from an immigrant background, he replies that they are well integrated, unlike the others. While he confesses to her that sometimes, taking justice into the ranks of the police would be a solution to delinquency, he does not know that Lucille records it on his dictaphone.
Back at the police station, Valois taunts Akim about the fact that his girlfriend came to interview him without informing him beforehand. Stung, Akim retorts that they do not talk about their work between them.
Meanwhile, the deputy prosecutor announces to Becker that she will complete the investigation into the assault on Abu. The young man refuses to speak and the testimonies of Akim and Valois agree. Consequently, she has no element to continue the prosecution. However, she implies to Becker that his men are lying and that the victim is silent for fear of reprisals.
When leaving the police station, she crosses paths with Akim and asks him why he wanted to join the police. When he replies that he wanted to protect the population, she asks him if covering up a violent colleague goes in this direction. She leaves him her card, in case he wishes to reconsider his testimony.
In the evening, as Hafida and Lucille discuss Akim’s work in the police force, his mother is delighted that he has finally found his calling. Gnawed by guilt, he leaves his home and calls the deputy prosecutor to give him a revelation: contrary to his initial testimony, he did not stay with Valois throughout the duration of the arrest of Abu …
New start for Johanna
It’s the big day for Johanna, who is finalizing her move into her new practice. Passing through her old office to collect her mail, she crosses paths with Guilhem, who confesses with great emotion that she will miss her. In his eyes, she was not just a simple associate: he considered her as his daughter, and she will always be welcome.
Arriving in her new premises, Johanna discusses the terms with her landlord, who offers her an unbeatable rent. He then invites her to have a drink with him in the evening in his VIP box at the opera house.
Johanna accepts, but while having a drink on the beach with Sabine after her day’s work, she loses track of time and forgets their date. Its owner, who had put a bunny on his own wife to spend the evening with Johanna on the pretext of seeing a big customer, is stung.
Elizabeth invites Guilhem to dinner
Seeing Guilhem totally devastated by Johanna’s departure, Elizabeth invites him to have dinner at her place while Alain cooks. At the table, the lawyer confesses to them that he hoped to bequeath his law firm to his niece when he retires. He fears that Johanna will not make it on her own in nature, the profession being very competitive and tough.
In reality, he saw this departure as a deep emotional break with the one he considered to be his only family. Upset, he takes leave of Elizabeth and Alain. Alone in his car, he looks nostalgically at a photo of Johanna as a child …
