Good News for Carter: Along with Brother Timothy, Aliyah (Regina King) pays a visit to Carter (Elvis Nolasco) to tell him the good news: the prosecution's case is weakening and they're looking to get a bail hearing for him. 

Hector is Done: When fellow gang member Lido presses Hector (Richard Cabral) to steal meds, he refuses, as he already has a lot of trouble on his plate and is at risk of getting deported. He talks to the head of the gang, letting him know he wants out; he's done with the gang life. The news doesn't not sit well with them. 

Going Home: Thanks to Edgar's helpful advice, Tony (Johnny Ortiz) is doing well in juvie. After a successful meeting with his probation officer, he is discharged and placed into the care of Alonzo (Benito Martinez). Their reunion, however, is nothing short of awkward. 

Carter is Closer to Freedom: At Carter's bail hearing, his lawyer Brother Timothy makes a strong case for him and the judge grants him bail. Aliyah and her community rejoice at the outcome, while Barb (Felicity Huffman) is the most devastated at the ruling. 


Gwen Wakes Up: When Tom reveals he read the interviews about Gwen and her sexual partners, he and Eve (Penelope Ann Miller) have a heated argument, causing Gwen to react from her coma. A nurse delivers the news that their daughter is waking up.
