  • Epifanio meets with Boaz, Cortez, and Reynaldo to announce that Boaz is going to have total control over the Sinaloa cartel and Cortez will be his operational partner, while Reynaldo supplies the Colombian cocaine.

  • Teresa visits Camila in prison again, telling her about the contract she found in Kelly Anne's house. She lies and says that Cole put everything under Camila's name and that she must be careful with him. Camila doesn't know why he would do that or why Kelly Anne would help Teresa. Teresa asks her if it's true that she's having an affair with Cole. Camila looks into her eyes and lies and says no.

  • James, to King George, who is holding a gun in his face: You don't want to threaten me.
  • James: You know, Camila likes you because she can control you. But the truth is, you are a sloppy, inexperienced girl who lets her emotions affect her judgement.
    • Teresa: No. You're upset because I work with Camila and you work for her.
