Agnes is under the weather this week so Pinky pays her a visit
with some movies and ice cream. While meeting with Agnes, Red
receives a call from Dembe asking for his help to get Dr. Michael
Abani out of custody in Yemen because Dembe needs a favor from an
old friend, specifically the mother of Dembe's kid.

Case Profile for Dr. Michael Abani
We dig into a little backstory this week on one of our favorite
characters, Dembe. Many moons ago, Dembe was a young up and
coming university student who had a love of fine wine and fine
women, mostly the women since he did not not drink. He also
had a knack for being a criminal as he helped support his friend
Raymond who had rescued him as a younger child. One day as Dembe is
delivering a pack to a handoff, he meets the love of his life
Aissa. One night Dembe frantically requests Aissa to leave with him
and she let's Dembe know that she can't and is going to the states,
but Dembe can't leave Raymond either and they part ways.
Years later Dembe returns only to find out that Aissa had a
daughter, Isabella. Yep Dembe... you are the
Fast forward to today and Aissa is now preparing to web Dr. Michael
Abani, but it turns up Abani was smuggling money and weapons to the
rebels against the country of Yemen. He is taken prisoner and
Aissa realizes she can only turn to one person to save her
fiancé. Dembe. Dembe then contants Red to see what he
is able to do. During the events they find out his partner
John was the one doing the dirty work, setting up an account in
Abani's name. Red has a chat with the leaders of Yemen, turns
over John, frees Abani, and gets a side deal in the process.
Dembe gets one last look at his long lost love as he begins to
amend things with Red.
