Tandy tries to wake up Tyrone, who is "bleeding" dark energy.

The next morning, Brigid arrives at the motel and finds the police securing the scene. They figure that there was a prostitution ring there and will it have moved up.

A man stops by the street corner where Lia is standing. He stops and talks to her, and Andre tasers him , dumps him out, and drives off with Lia in the stolen car.

Evita gets a call from Tandy, grabs her Voudon supplies, and leaves. She's unaware that Chantelle is on the floor in the next room, unconscious.

At the church Tyrone coughs but doesn't wake up. Brigid comes in and tells Tandy that she was at the motel, and figures that Tandy was there. Tandy shows her the unconscious Tyrone.

Adina goes to see Delgado at his home, and he says that he's strong enough to let in the person that he let down. She tells him that he still has a job to do, and says that she found a way that they could save him. Adina asks if Delgado will hear her out.

Evita arrives at the church and tries to tend to Tyrone. They're unable to raise Chantelle, and Evita says that Tyrone is "transitioning" like his fight-or-flight response is broken. Tandy figures that he's stuck in the darkness that he tapped into, where Mayhem is. She describes who she met and Evita recognizes Papa Legba, and figures that Tyrone is trying to tell them that they have to go in. Evita explains that Legba is a Voudon Loa and marries to Chantelle, and draws Legba's veve on the floor. She warns that if they want something from Legba, they'll have to offer him something.

The girl calls on Legba to present himself., giving him an offering of rum in exchange for the way in. A portal opens on the floor, and Tandy tells Brigid that she's jumping in and Tyrone would do it for her. Brigid insists on going with her, they hold hands, and jump in together. They find themselves in the same black void that Tandy saw further, and find Legba waiting for them, wearing a ballet instructor's form. Legba takes the candy, and Tandy discovers that there's an arcade there instead of a mall like there was the first time.

Tandy disappears, and Fuchs steps out of the darkness and confronts Brigid.

After arriving at the arcade, Tandy calls to Tyrone but gets no response.

Fuchs tells Brigid that she has to know what she's willing to give up to get what she wants.

Samedi confronts Tandy.

Brigid offers "Fuchs" some gum and realizes that it isn't Fuchs. She says that it's nice to see him, and Legba takes the gum and walks off. Brigid goes to a pay telescope and sees Mayhem at the mall.

Tandy says that Legba sent him, and Samedi introduces himself. He says that he resides over the dead, and Tyrone is close enough and made his payment. Tandy offers to pay Tyrone's debt, and Samedi chuckles and says that each action has its own reaction. He says that Tandy can play Tyrone's game, and if she convinces him to leave then Samedi will let them both go. However, he warns that it's Samedi's house and the house always wins.

Adina offers the file with the evidence to Delgado but says that she can't give it to them without having to say where she got it. However, Delgado can claim church privilege. Delgado tells her that she's no longer a priest.

Andre pulls over and clutches at his head in pain. He tells Lia that he needs more, enough to get them somewhere safe, and assures her it will be the last time. Lia braces herself and Andre finds himself in his record store as he touches her. He' surrounded by broken records, and he takes out a record with Lia's name on it and plays the music of her memories. The sound soothes him and relieves his headache, and he sees the veve on the door. Andre tries the door but it's locked.

Brigid hears the music and looks around the mall. Mayhem grabs her and drags her away.

Mayhem explains that the records are of the missing girls in the fliers, and Andre is taking them. He plays the music to make them feel pain and uses them up, and can get to anyone. Brigid suggests that they find something strong enough to stop him.

Chantelle says that Evita has all of the choices, but only one will save Tyrone. She has to marry Samedi because he has dominion over the dead. Evita stares at Tyrone's body and turns to discover that Chantelle is gone.
