Red continues his mission to find who was behind Liz's murder by breaking into Reginald Cole's office for a clue. Turns out he finds a key to a super secret vault that criminals such as Red use to store their wares. The vault was designed by one Helen Maghi #172 so Red pays her a visit in order to draw up a plan for getting into the facility to the storage unit that is not his. The plan works and what Red and Dembe find is a suitcase of instructions for Liz that only Red and Liz should have had access to.
Elsewhere Cooper's case is not going well. First he ends up with a $300,000 slap for bail only to find out later that he will have to take a deal and end his career because his best friend Lou struck a deal for himself. This puts Aram in charge of the task force for the first time and he goes toe to toe with Red. Red not happy with this works his magic to get Cooper another month to clear his name but that backfires when Cooper decides that Aram should stay in charge.
While Aram and the team walk through how to penetrate the mountain we hear “Rise Up” by Greenwood Rhythm Collection for our heist music. Then at the end of the episode as Red and Cooper sit at the table we hear “If You Have Ghosts” by Chelsea Wolfe.
