Nick is told that taking the money was a 'test' by Captain Dawes, who wanted to see if he could be trusted. Stoddard is still a dirty cop on the vice squad and becomes a personal enemy to Nick afterwards. Captain Dawes assigns Nick and Khai to find any evidence on Stoddard's deal at Neltz's warehouse. There, Mendoza finds evidence in a secret safe and a voice recorder of the deal.
Khai drives Nick to the location found by the Tamu-Tamu toys, and is Stoddard's location. Nick goes there as Khai follows a van across the other side of Miami. Getting in, Nick sees a meeting with Stoddard and Neltz's henchman, telling them he's their boss and discuss of Neltz's missing money.
Nick tries to apprehend Stoddard, but is forced to work with him to escape the basement, and must use him to help Khai. Going in the interceptor, the duo defeat or arrest criminals and save Khai. The trio meet with Dawes, evading debris from the hurricane.
Nick apprehends Stoddard, but is stopped by Dawes. Mendoza and gives the Captain the recording of the deal. The Captain speaks, and destroys the recorder, revealing his true colors.

Shocked by the betrayal, Khai reveals that the money was the main problem. Dawes tells him they tried to bring him into "their tribe", but failed.
