Bennett and Daya confronted Aledia in the kitchen about Delia and she told them that Delia does wants to adopt the baby. Daya and Bennett were horrified at the idea but Aledia said that their baby could have a better future with Delia and also, Cesar would only mess the child up. Still determined to keep their baby, Bennett proposed to Daya with a ring made out of gum wrapper and then he visited Cesar to tell him about the engagement. However, he saw how Cesar handles kids and that made him doubt about keeping the baby.

Big Boo and Nicky were still having trouble with the stash of heroin. Nicky saw an opportunity with Luschek when she found weed on him and then she asked him if he could help them move the stash. He agreed but when they get to where they were hiding the stash, it’s no longer there.
