  • Javier: Ese cabrón saved my ass at the hospital. You have a good soldier.
    • Teresa: I know.
  • Teresa, to Boaz: After we take out Cortez, you will run Sinaloa. I would like you to share any major decisions with James.
  • Cortez, to Isabela: I love you, as if you were of my own flesh and blood.
  • Camila, to Reynaldo: I know Teresa told you she'll keep me safe. But what happened between us was very personal. I don't think she'll keep her promise to you. You know me, Reynaldo. I won't go down without a very bloody fight.
  • Camila: It's interesting though. She never approved of violence when she was working for me.
    • Pote: She's la jefa now. She will do what she has to to protect her people. And her business.
    • Camila: Hm. Must be eating away at her. To become what she hated the most.
    • Pote: And what's that?
    • Camila: Me.
