Synopsis "The Bridge" - "Calaca" - July 17, 2013We pick up where we left off with Charlotte opening the door. It leads to a tunnel where her late husband Carl was funneling illegal immigrants from Mexico. Inside is a skeleton. The foreman assures her it was an accident. He says he doesn't know what's on the other side and no one else knows about it. She tells him to board it up. He thinks this is a bad idea but she insists.A group of Mexicans are being ferried across the border in a cattle truck when the driver stops and dumps them in the desert, telling them to walk the rest of the way even though this was not the agreement.

They hit the road. An older couple stays behind.Cross and Ruiz interrogate a grumpy Daniel Frye, the journalist with the car bomb. Ruiz lies and says they tossed his house and found a stash of pills to get him to talk more.
