Once they're alone, Seema tells Ray that he said he'd never lie to her again. She explains that she believed in her soul that she married him because he was a good man. Ray says that he will fix it and make them safe, but Seema says that their son deserves one person in his life that he can trust and it will never be Ray.

She pleads fatigue and says that all she wants is a hot bath and bed. Vanessa goes up to the master suite on her own.
The next morning at the new office--the gym--Matt brings Ray there and says that he'll be safe there. Karen is waiting and Ray admits to her that he should have listened. She doesn't want to his apologies for what happened at the church. They try to work out how Ray can get out of the country away from Fisk, and Karen tells him that just because he hurt people doesn't mean it has to define him.

Ray says that he loves his job and wants to be on the right side of the line, and explains that Fisk uses his sister's health issues to corrupt him.

At the penthouse, Vanessa tells Fisk that Dex brought the painting. Fisk says that he intended for the painting to remain with Esther, and Vanessa asks if Dex is the new Wesley. Her lover says that Dex is useful and she shouldn't concern himself with how dangerous Dex is. Vanessa says that it's time to talk honestly and tells him that if all they have is his criminal career then she's still lonely. She asks Fisk to share his life with her fully, and Fisk takes her with him.
Ray takes a taxi home and goes into his house past the police line tape. He looks at the photos of his family, and then records a message on his phone for them. He says that he loves her more than life itself, and tells Sami that he made his life better and to do the same for Seema.
