Without her partner in crime, Jeffery, Candace is left the grisly task of disposing of Quincy's body. As she steps over Quincy—whose body had lain motionless and supposedly lifeless—he suddenly reanimates, taking hold of Candace's ankle!

Quincy uses his diminishing strength to plead with Candace to call an ambulance and save his life. Astonished by his request, Candace says, "You want me to help you?"

"You remember: I love you," Quincy says, gasping for breath.

Candace says she remembers many things about their past, but that certainly isn't one of them. She launches into a litany of Quincy's monstrous behavior, including threatening their son, physically abusing Candace and even pimping her out to his friends.

"Do you really want to talk about what I remember?" Candace says.

Candace refuses to call the ambulance. Quincy tries to scare her by saying she'll be brought up on murder charges when the authorities realize he's missing.

"Nobody's going to miss your ass," Candace tells him.

"Candy, what are you doing?"

"I'm just going to sit here and wait for you to die."

Police officer and Jeffery Harrington

After arresting Jeffery for a DUI, the police officer pulls over on the way back to the police station to frisk Jeffery and question him once again about Candace. The officer quickly becomes antagonistic toward Jeffery, harassing him and making homophobic comments. He orders him into the back of the police car, where the officer joins him. Jeffery sits motionless and horrified as the officer insinuates that he will let him go in return for sexual favors.

Just then, the dispatch officer radios in from the station to inform the officer that Jeffery is a person of interest. The officer tells her that he’ll bring Jeffery in right away, and he also requests that Quincy's car be impounded. After threatening Jeffery once more, the officer returns to the driver's seat and continues to the station.

Back at Candace's house, Quincy lies dying on the floor and continues to beg Candace for this life.

"Help me. We have a son, Candace," Quincy says. "He needs me alive."

Candace is unmoved by his pleas—until Quincy explains that he has their son's medicine and that she won't be able to find it without him. Ultimately, though, Candace dismisses his threat.

"When you find your son dying, remember you let him die," Quincy says.

Candace calmly waits and watches as Quincy takes his final breath.

"Bye, Quincy," she says. "Rest in hell."

To coax Wyatt into testifying against his parents in court, District Attorney Jennifer Sallison pulls some strings so that Wyatt can access his $12 million inheritance early—if he can prove he has been successfully rehabilitated from his drug addiction. Wyatt promises the DA that he's turned over a new leaf and will provide evidence of his sobriety.

A short while later, Wyatt is visited by an old friend, Pete, who shows up at his house to make a trade: Wyatt gets forged rehab documents and a substance that will clear his system of any traces of drugs, and Pete gets his parents' credit cards.

Pete has also brought him a small bag of white powder, but Wyatt sees that he's carrying a much larger brick of the narcotic. Old habits die hard, and Wyatt demands the lot.

"Wyatt, that's 80 grand. If I don't pay the guy that gave it to me, he's going to kill me, and then he's going to kill you," the dealer says.

Already counting his chickens before they've hatched, Wyatt tells Pete not to worry. "You'll get the money. Don't you trust me?"
