In this episode, Ellen's FBI contact turns out to be a married man she's having an affair with, Ken. Ken, completely unaware of the nature of Ellen's work, defers his plans to leave his wife and kids and marry Ellen because he's at a pivotal place in his FBI sting: he now has two Confidential Informants -- Paulie and Phil. Learning that Phil has gone to the FBI and is cooperating with them (instead of killing Paulie), Ellen makes a phone call and orders Paulie and Phil to be killed.
