Stop the car!

This is crazy.

Look at me.

I was running from Epifanio and stumbled into Camila's mule route.

She could've killed me.

She didn't.

We saw them kill Chino.

They killed Guero, and you're working for that puta?

Epifanio did, not her.

Yeah, they're the same, Teresa.

Get out of the car, Tony.

Get out of the car.

You brought me and my son up here.

You brought us up here and she's probably waiting for us.

You know that she's probably waiting for us.

We saw what they did.

We saw them kill Chino!

Listen to me, there's something going on between them.

She could've killed me twice.

Batman came up here and she protected me even from him.

Jesus, Batman was here?

This is crazy.

He's gone now.

I thought we'd run when you got here.

I did.

That was my plan, but now I think it's not the smartest thing to do.

If we do that now, we're gonna have both of them tracking us to kill us.

Someone told me the best thing to do with Camila is allow her to get bored of me.

Who told you that? Gato?


You think people get bored of people who saw murders?

Is that what you think?

Epifanio's running for governor.

He wants us dead.

Did you forget that?

We can make some money and disappear.

I promise you.

I should be dead, and I'm not.

Estas cojo. You got a limp, right?

But these people driving by, they don't see you walking so they don't know you have a limp so they're gonna keep on driving.

Now honestly, I don't know what gives you the balls to stand out here anyway, because if that pinche manager wants to call the cops on you, you can't even run.

I could stay here because my brother's the manager of the motel so no one's gonna be calling the cops.

Camila only owns half of Dallas.

Did you know that?

Jimenez cartel has the other half.

I'm sure you've heard of them.


They have an accord with Epifanio... allows them to use Dallas as a hub, get down to the ports if there's trouble with their other outlets.

So if the DEA's up their ass, they can get drugs to Europe.

Keep supply going out, keeps money coming in.

They sent this prick to babysit their land.

The thing is, Camila wants all of Dallas.

Jimenez could give two sh1ts about the cocaine business here.

They just want to use the ports when they need them.
