At the hospital, Micki is worried that Trey may get hurt. Trey tells her that he has her six on this. Micki snags a doctor's ID and Trey pretends he is a doctor to get access to Mendoza's room and the nurse gives him the information. Both Micki and Trey go into the room and they tell Mendoza who they are and that they are going to take him somewhere safe. In the hallway there is a strange man who Micki knows he was sent to kill him. They are able to get Mendoza clear of the hospital and take him to the SIDE Step. Micki tells her about how Stan killed Emily and that Mendoza needs protection until protective custody. Micki tells her that she is the only one she can trust and Geri agrees but askes where Walker is as she worried. It's night fall, Walker has taken them to the exact spot Emily died.

Cali tells him that on order to secure his loyality to Northside Nation, he would need to personally finish the job. Stan, scared for his life takes the fatal shot and kills Emily. He admits that he kept the poker chips as a reminder of what he had done as he felt guilty. Stella, Bonham, Abeline and August all take turns to jab on Stan for what he has done as he has been lying to them all. The next morning, Stan is in Walker's car and is about to be brought it police custody. Walker tells Stan that he won the election as DA. As they leave the car, a sniper takes shots towards Walker and Stan's direction. Stan is shot and a stray bullet lands in the vest that Walker is wearing.
