The government is watching you & there are cameras everywhere. “Brotherhood” opened with John watching over their new “numbers” named Tracy & Malcom Booker. They are foster kids. John heads to a drug related shootout between Armenia & the “brotherhood.” As detective Riley, he met up with the brotherhood a few months ago. Two of the brotherhood are killed in the drug deal.
Harold finds Malcom & Tracy who stole the drug money from the drug deal. One Armenian got away in the shootout & left behind bags of Heroin. Malcom drops money on an air vent because he sees Harold following them on the street. People scatter for the money that flies into the air. The team has to get to the kids before the brotherhood or the Armenians do.
The DEA has a mole in their organization. They believe that the brotherhood is not territorial who have informants on the street as well as in the police department. “Link” who was arrested by John/Riley was released & he heads back to the brotherhood. Two members follow the kids into an underground parking lot & pull their machine guns. Samantha is holding a brotherhood member “Minny”& she rams her car into the brotherhood vehicle.
John & a DEA agent bring the kids to an empty apartment. Malcom & Tracy explain that their mother was framed for holding an unregistered gun. She took the fall for her boyfriend who owned that gun. The kids took the drug money to get an expensive lawyer to release their mother from prison. Samantha takes “Minny” to a basement & locks him to pipes. He’s bleeding out after the earlier shootout. He talks to her about his leader named Dominic.
The DEA agent is the mole who leaves John & the kids behind giving the brotherhood their location. Can John get the kids out of trouble? Will Samantha let “Minny” die? You can watch “Brotherhood” over at CBS.
