"We're running out of time, Wade. We don't want to solve a child murder, we want to prevent it."
Wade looked at the forest floor for a moment or two, then up at Jericho. "I really missed you, Jay. Nobody else yells at me like you do."
Nobody else got Jericho frustrated enough that he WANTED to yell, but he wasn't going to tell Wade that. It would be one more response that would move them into dangerous territory, too intimate and true for who they now were.
Wade was - What the hell was he? Helping out? Not because he believed in the cause, that was certain. Maybe it was because Jericho WAS his weak spot. Which made it a hell of a lot easier for Jericho to accept that Wade was his.
"We're on different sides. I'm sworn to uphold the law, and you seem bound and determined to break it at every opportunity. So we're on different sides." Jericho looked at the man in front of him. "But, no, I don't want to be your enemy."
Wade's smile was a little sad now. "I guess that's a start."

Wade is not a good citizen, just the opposite.
THEY have still this PERFECT connection (you know what I mean, right?) For Jericho it is like COMING HOME. AND. It is like coming in greatest trouble. And. THAT is the last thing Jericho needs in the very moment.
