Rashad arrives at his campaign office and lets his staff know that an additional support package is on the way. In the back, Derek asks his wife to take their pet to the vet since he's stuck babysitting "this asshole." Cassandra says the councilman apologized for losing his temper. Derek has to let it go. This campaign is bigger than them. Ramona Garrity walks in and reads a list of names of people who are no longer needed on the campaign. Derek is surprised to see she's still in politics after her husband did. Ramona says Senator Powell is her soon-to-be ex-husband. Rashad is charmed that she showed up. She's planning on stress-testing his operation first before giving him money. Ramona says the DNC needs to use its war chest to build a stronger Democratic majority in New York's upper chamber. They need the next governor's veto power over districting to pull that off, so they need Rashad to win. In order to do that, they need Ramona's people. She brings up James St. Patrick.
Tommy and LaKeisha arrive at his base. His crew isn't wild about her being there because shit always goes sideways when a bitch gets involved.

He instructs his crew to get to work while he continues his tour with LaKeisha.
Cooper is meeting with Alicia in prison. She claims she couldn't have ordered the hit on the safe house from inside. He tells her her men were sloppy since they only killed Dre's guards. Now she's looking at the needle. She maintains having no idea what he's talking about. Alicia's lawyer states the whole case rests on Dre's testimony and she's ready to crucify him in court. She'd rather not so that's why she wants the U.S. to drop all charges and let Alicia return to Mexico to be prosecuted there. They have already guaranteed jail time if she's found guilty. In return, Cooper will get peace of mind, because Alicia is willing to let her misgivings about Dre stay in the past. Cooper refuses and says he'll see them in court.
James visits Rashad in his office. He has noticed construction is yet to begin on the Queens Child Project while Larens promised him it would start today. Rashad tells him they are out of money. City council are dragging their heels. Reallocating public funds for a project like that takes a lot of time. There's nothing he can do about that. James threatens to torpedo the campaign. James then notices Ramona. Rashad informs him about the sex scandal her ex-husband Powell is involved in. She came in to energize the campaign. She can't see him, so if James wants the QCP to move forward, James has to secure them more private equity. He asks James to leave through the backdoor.
Tasha and Tommy are meeting in his new car. He misses the days when he could move cash through the club. Tasha wishes she could help him, but she's got problems of her own. She needs a job. Tommy suggests he tell 'Keisha to let Tasha use her salon, but Tasha can't see that happening. Tommy thinks 'Keisha needs to get over that shit. This is business. He receives a summoning text from Jason and he has no idea why.
Tariq is showing Brayden his new watch. Effie comes in and notices the fancy things in their room. She thought their operation was about being low-key.
