In L.A Confidential (1997), Exley visited Miss Bracken, who works for Pierce Patchett’s Fleur-de-Lis service, to inquire about her meeting with Bud White. However, things took an unexpected turn when Exley and Miss Bracken made out and were photographed by Sid. Meanwhile, Jack was seen leaving a building and fidgeting with his lighter before putting it away:
Jack: Come on. Shit.
Then Jack drives to Dudley’s and they discuss past collaboration involving Buzz Meeks and Dick Stensland. During the conversation, Jack is shot by Dudley.
