Fastlane Full Episode Guide

  • Van, Deaq and Billie must carry out the orders of a killer named Nick McKussick (KIRK ACEVEDO - "Oz," "Band of Brothers"). Only after they perform tasks for Nick, involving the recovery of materials from foreign nationals entering the U.S., does he inform them of his poisoning victims, so they can be saved in time. As Billie relates how she knows Nick--and why she is so terrified of him--it becomes obvious that Nick is using the threesome to gain control of an incredibly lucrative stash of valuables, and the lives of countless unknown innocents depend on the cops' success.
