Ray and Ani are sitting in bed after they got done sleeping together. She’s recounting the moment when she was taken by the man in her younger years. She said that he didn’t force her into his car; she said she went willingly. She got into the van with a stranger. She says, every time she remembers that feeling – that feeling of pride – she gets sick to her stomach. She says that she felt proud that he thought she was pretty. She says that this feeling makes her feel sick and she can’t believe she felt that way. Next, Ray tells Ani that he killed someone; he thought that it was the man who raped his wife but, as it turns out, he killed the wrong man.
Frank talks with Jordan. He gives her some money and tells her that he’ll meet her in two weeks. He tells her that she doesn’t have a choice – but she says that she always has a choice. And she’s not going anywhere. He tells her to take her payout and go – but she’s adamant that she’s sticking around. She says that there’s only US: What they do to one they do to the other. He tries to tell her that there’s no other way. He said that she made everything worth it and that he couldn’t live with himself if they got to him via her. He says that he has his way out and that he promises her that he’ll meet her. In two weeks – or less. He tells her to meet her in a park and to where a white dress. She tells him to wear a white suit with a red rose in the pocket.
Jordan eventually leave in the car. Frank puts on his game face.
Ray gets a phone call from his ex-lieutenant, Kevin Burris, the guy who killed Paul. He asks him why he killed Paul. Ray says that he knows about the diamonds that were stolen, and it was information that Caspere had on Kevin. Kevin wants to meet to talk things over, but Ray hangs up the phone. Ani wonders what that was all about. Ray reveals what has happened, and Ani can’t believe Woodrugh is dead. She says that “he was better than us” and Ray admits that he deserved better. Rays says that everyone’s going to pin the deaths of Davis and on him. Woodrugh
Frank goes to Austin Chessani’s house. He’s dead, floating in the pool. Frank asks the wife where Tony is. She doesn’t know. Frank tells her that this was obviously Tony’s doing – a setup to make it look like a suicide.
Frank and Ani go to look for a camera, one that could possibly contain footage of Caspere’s death. They hear a woman’s voice and they go into the family room. She’s sitting on the floor. She tells them about how she got brought into the prostitution ring with Caspere and Chessani’s help. She said that she helped her brother get a job on the movie set. The girl gives them both a testimony to what happened to Caspere – and there’s a hard drive that would’ve contained footage on the event but it erased itself as a security precaution when it was accessed incorrectly. Ray heads to find Len, who is about to kill Holloway.
Frank goes to his favorite chill bar and chats with the barmaid. He says that Ray has been framed for murders and that he’s going to need passage to Mexico – Ani will need help too, he says. She asks what’s going on, and Frank tells her that everything’s ending.
Ray heads to the station. He sees his face on the monitor; he’s wanted for murder. He finds Len and tells him to end all of this before he does something stupid. This is the guy in the bird mask who shot Ray in Caspere’s home.
Ray ends up meeting with Chief Holloway. He wants his name cleared in exchange for handing over the hard drive. Len is sitting behind Ray and listening to everything Holloway is saying. Holloway says that Len’s sister was Caspere’s illegitimate child. Len freaks out over this and lunges for Holloway. Chaos ensues. Burris rushes out from behind a wall and starts shooting. Ani comes out from nowhere and opens fire. Cops come out and shoot Len – and they also shoot Holloway in the mix. Burris gets away. So do Ani and Ray.
Frank meets Ani for the first time.
He tells her that if she takes this Venezuela deal that she should go to this park – and there will be this woman there. He shows her a picture of Jordan. He asks Ani to give Jordan a message if he’s unable to be there. She wants her to tell her that “their story they told … it’s still true.”
Ray comes in. Frank and Ray talk. Frank says that if Venezuela works that they could have good lives.
Ray tells Frank that he promised the guy who set him up. Frank tells Ray that it was Blake and that he already took care of it – and he did NOT go nicely.
Frank tells Ray his plan to get out.
Ani talks with Felicia, the woman who owns the bar – the Venezuela plan is confirmed. The woman tells her how she will plan on smuggling them into the country. She says it’s much easier to get people in than out.

Ray’s on the road. He looks at a picture of his son and notices the exit that will take him to his son’s school. He wants to see him one last time so he turns off. He gets out of the car to see him. As he approaches the schoolyard, an SUV pulls around the corner. Ray gives his son a salute and walks off.
As Ray’s walking off, he utters, “Yeah he’ll be all right.”
Ray gets back to his car and notices something different. (Later, he realizes that his car has been bugged with a transponder). He looks around for the culprits. He lights a cigarette and stands out in the middle of the street. He gets in his car and it starts all right. As soon as he speeds off, the SUV follows him.
Meanwhile, Frank is assaulted by the Hispanic gang.
Ray calls Ani and says that he’s going to be late. He tells her to get on the boat no matter what. He says that he’s been hit with a transponder and that now people are following him. He tells Ani that he wants to talk with Felicia. He immediately tells Felicia that he’s not going to make it and that she needs to do everything in her power to make sure she gets on that boat to Venezuela – even if it means tying her up and throwing her on board.
Frank’s taken to the desert. The gang is mad that there are no more clubs to push their drugs through anymore. He tells the gang that there’s a flat million in the suitcase. That’s his trade.
Meanwhile, Ray records another audio message for his son. He says that he hopes he can forgive him for the man he’s turned into and the one he became. He tells him that he loves him. He notices a cop on the side of the road – perhaps he’s gotten an idea.

She tells him that now he can rest. He says, “Never stop moving.” She says, “Oh, babe, you stopped moving way back there.” He looks back and sees his body on the earth.
