To being proceedings, Episode 2, “I Got You” gives the audience a flashback; Edson (Seu Jorge) intentionally poisoning Scavenger to help him escape prison from the back of an ambulance. There is the talk of a deal once Scavenger gets out.

In the present day, it is clear that Cristina is torn with an emotional dilemma; she has a nightmare about what she knows of her brother and what she has heard. She knows she has key decisions to make in the story. “I Got You” has got her in a pickle. The Crime Unit guilt trip her — “we are the heroes in this story”.

After being convinced once again to snitch and get information about Scavenger, Cristina visits the prison. On the way in, she is inspected to ensure she is not sneaking anything in. She finally sees Edson, who is enjoying time with his family in the yard. Edson is immediately suspicious of why Cristina has shown up. Suspicion turns into an emotional conversation between the siblings — he asks about Marcel and Cristina reveals he is having a baby. Cristina apologizes for telling their Dad about the weed, which presumably started his troubled life.

But Cristina has to prove herself in Episode 2 in order to get the Brotherhood on her side. She speaks to Ivan and manages to secure a deal with the Warden to get him released. She insists that this is the only way to gain trust. Cristina also speaks to De Paula, the legal adviser to Brotherhood, but he threatens her. At this point, our lead character is spooked and understands the grave danger she is in.

Passing the halfway point, Cristina asks Edson about the Brotherhood and Scavenger, and also leaves her recording behind so they can listen to De Paula and Edson talk. Cristina sneakily plants seeds in Edson’s head about the true intentions of Scavenger.

It appears Cristina’s prying lands her into more muddled water. De Paula asks her to meet Scavenger on Edson’s orders. Cristina meets the Scavenger, tracked at the same time by the Crime Unit. Scavenger’s men feel they are being tracked, and the suspicions are confirmed as gunfire ensues.

Brotherhood Season 1, Episode 2, “I Got You” ends with Cristina driving off with Scavenger to evade danger. Eventually, Scavenger asks Cristina to leave the car and shouts, “tell Edson there is a snitch in Brotherhood”
