Episode TitleEdit

The term might refer literally to the scar in Armadillo Quintero's face, which is an important element on the events of the season. However, it might also refer to the "emotional scars" left in Corrine Mackey after Claudette Wyms tells her several truths about Vic, or the "scars" shown in Danny Sofer's career and personal life as she loses a promotion and confesses to Vic how lonely she feels, or the "ethnic scars" shown from a long forgotten grudge between the two Thai families: Rama and Kusa.


  • International airdates:
    • Germany: March 25, 2006
    • France: September 5, 2007
  • When Danny Sofer almost kisses Dutch Wagenbach, he backs off and says "Kim's making me dinner tonight" which probably means he is still dating Kim Kelner whom he met in Season 1.


  • Vic Mackey: I've got a team member in the burn unit, the guy who did it out on the street, and you think now is a good time to screw with my family?
  • Claudette Wyms: I think Armadillo went to your house looking for you, Vic. Lucky your wife and kids didn't end up in the burn ward.
  • Vic Mackey: My family's off limits.
  • Claudette Wyms: You tell that to Armadillo.
  • Vic Mackey: I'm telling you!!

  • Armadillo Quintero: The first few weeks are the worst. Then the skin gets hard. The stinging goes away.
