Will Trent Episode 5 Recap
The Club Shooting: An Investigation into a Tragedy
Will and Faith are working at their GBI office when Faith gets a call about her son, Jeremy, who was at a club where a woman was shot. Will and Faith go to the scene quickly, where Jeremy tells them he wasn’t hurt too badly in the stampede. Faith is mad at her son because he was at a club when he was too young to drink. In Georgia, you have to be 21 to drink legally.
Will (Ramón Rodríguez) also finds out from the police that the club owner, Chris Conlan, used to play football and won awards as an athlete before he quit because of a knee injury. Conlan and his wife Brooke were leaving the club when a thief took Conlan’s necklace and accidentally shot Brooke.
Will thinks that someone in the club must have told the shooter, so he bets that he can figure out what happened in one night. A fellow police officer takes the bet and tells him that the case might be related to a string of recent robberies in midtown.
Will looks for the person working with the shooter inside the club and finds a social media account called Deux Peches. Will checks it and finds out that the person who is in charge of the account could be the informer. He and Faith find Ava Green, the person who owns the account and arrest two people who broke into her apartment. Ava says, though, that she is not guilty and that she only told the group about places through her social media account.
Uncovering the Truth Behind a Tragic Incident
Ava didn’t have anything to do with the shooting at the club, and the fact that her car looked like the getaway car was just a coincidence. Will and Faith ask the club’s manager, Pudge, who is also Conlan’s friend, some questions. He doesn’t tell them much, and when they go back to ask him more questions after finding out he lied, they find him dead. Will starts to think that Pudge and Conlan are too close because Pudge never talked to Conlan after the incident.
When the theft of Chris Conlan’s necklace is looked into, a complicated plan comes to light. Conlan had his necklace insured and had a fake copy made so that he could use a fake insurance scheme to make money.
He asked his best friend Pudge to steal the fake necklace from a public place, but while doing so, Pudge accidentally shot Conlan’s wife. Pudge and Conlan didn’t talk to each other after the shooting because they had planned the fake theft, except for the part where the wife was shot.
Lucas, Conlan’s boss, was having an affair with Brooke, and he wanted to get rid of Conlan. Lucas gave Pudge a gun that was already loaded instead of one that was empty because he wanted Pudge to shoot Conlan by accident and kill him. This would allow Lucas to get Brooke and Conlan’s money. Will starts to think that Lucas killed Pudge to hide the fact that he was involved in the shooting and to get the murder weapon from him.
They ask Conlan to help them get Lucas to come to them so they can get the murder weapon (the loaded gun Lucas gave Pudge). Conlan killed Pudge, but they didn’t know it, and now he wants to kill Lucas and claim self-defense. Will figures out what’s going on and rushes in to save Lucas, which is bad for him.
Betrayal and Deception: Unraveling a Murder in a Rich Neighborhood
Conlan is hurt by the betrayal and wants to kill his friend and manager, but Will talks to him and stops him. Both men are taken into custody by the police for their crimes, which include shooting someone by accident and lying to get money from an insurance company.
In the end, we don’t find out what happens to Brooke. In the meantime, the police give Ava probation, and Will sees her one last time. He says straight out that he hasn’t gotten over Angie and isn’t interested in dating anyone.
Will gives Faith food while they work on the case because he knows she has diabetes and needs to watch her blood sugar. Since she passed out, he has been paying attention and has noticed that she has changed what she eats and is carrying around insulin shots that she hides.
The APD gives Angie and Ormewood another murder case to work on, which takes them away from Will and Faith’s case. They have to look into the death of Sean Hinchcliff, a rich real estate agent who lived in a rich neighborhood.
While showing one of the houses, Sean was shot and killed, and the murder weapon was left behind. The homeowners’ association, on the other hand, says that Sean was a dishonest real estate agent who sold homes on a rent-to-own plan with no down payment, which is against the law.

Uncovering the Connection to Cryptocurrency and Se* Trafficking
When all of the man’s employees go to the police station to be questioned, the situation gets more complicated. They say that he paid them in digital currencies and that he owed them a few months’ worths of pay, which they think is now gone.
Sean’s death made it so that he couldn’t get to the money in his cryptocurrency account. But the person in charge of the man’s technology says that someone recently broke into the account and moved the money to another account.
Ormewood digs deeper into the case and finds out that Hinchcliff and Gregory Pardee were also in business together. This business sold non-fungible tokens (NFTs) of strip club performers and used cryptocurrency. Sean sold the company and kept all the money for himself, leaving Gregory out in the cold. In the end, this led to Sean’s death, which was done by Gregory.
At Gregory’s house, Angie and Ormewood catch him and find a woman who is scared. Angie realizes that she is a victim of the “Zero Mile” sex trafficking group. Even though she has tried to take them down while working at Vice, she hasn’t been able to. Now, Angie has a witness who might be able to help put an end to “Zero Mile.” After the case is over, Angie goes back to Will’s house, where he invites her in to talk about her hard day.
Will and Faith are called to a club where a woman was shot and a stampede occurred, leading to a complex plan involving the club owner’s fake insurance scheme, the murder of his friend, and a complicated relationship between Conlan, his wife, and his boss. Will and Faith find Ava Green, the person who owns the account, and arrest two people who broke into her apartment.
Pudge is found dead, and Will believes Lucas killed Pudge to hide the fact that he was involved in the shooting and to get the murder weapon. Will and Faith investigate a murder in a rich neighborhood, and Conlan is taken into custody for his crimes. Angie and Ormewood uncover the connection between cryptocurrency and sex trafficking, leading to Sean’s death and the discovery of the “Zero Mile” sex trafficking group.
