Darla calls Charley later on and tells her she isn’t feeling well. Charley tells her that she can relate to the stress of having parents visit. Charley also gives her permission to stay home.

“In the south, these things are all over the place.” – Micah’s Classmate.

However Micah thinks they should be taken down. His classmate tells him that these symbolize their past, which they should learn from.

Martin Bennington stops by Charley’s office to go over her offer. However, it seems that Martin is more-so interested in getting to know her on a personal level. When she reminds him that he is a Landry, he assures her that he wants nothing to do with them.

“Not carrying the Landry-Boudreaux name helps me sleep better at night. – Martin

Charley is convinced that the both of them can do something great.

“Blood is blood. But business is business. That’s what the Queen Sugar Mill is all about.” – Charley

Darla pleads with RA to return home.

Ralph Angel is still driving and Darla calls. Eventually he picks up the phone and is silent. Darla wants to talk about it, however, RA sits on the phone quietly. This silence gets to Darla who begs him to come home.

“I’m gonna manage it, but Ima be fine.” – Aunt Vi.

She also tells Hollywood that she doesn’t want to “become another Leanne.” However, Hollywood puts his foot down, telling her that he quit his job for her, and will be there no matter what.

“I ain’t going no where… Trust… We’re going to get through this. I’m gonna help you tell him, but you’re gonna tell them. We’ve already seen what holding secrets did to this family.” – Hollywood

Kiki is with Micah at Aunt Vi’s restaurant and gets him to talk about the monuments at his school. She encourages him to fight to get the monuments taken down. He tells her that his school’s donors have the money and power to keep them up, but she balks at that.

While on the tour, Martin Bennington seems to be more interested in Charley personally. He asks her out to dinner but she initially brushes it off, telling Martin she is seeing somebody. Eventually, she agrees to dinner as long as they can talk about business.

“It just needs time.” – Darlene

Charley and Micah watch a news story about a confederate coming down in the city.

“To give into that is to live in bondage, fear.” – Charley

“The nerve to put it on display… Like that stupid flag with an X on it.” – Micah

While she’s reminiscing on why she loves it here, Micah notices she is talking about Remy. He asks if she is in love with him and she says, “I don’t know.”

Micah doesn’t seem too frustrated with her moving on with Remy, telling her, “I guess I like him.”

“I guess I’ll be someone’s big brother soon.” – Micah

Darla is advised to give Ralph Angel space.

Later that night, Darlene is playing the piano, and to her delight, Darla joins in. They play a song that Darlene is surprised she remembered. Their mood changes when Darlene brings up Blue learning lessons. Darlene calms things down when she tells him that Ra may need some space.

“I don’t want to give him space. I want him.” – Darla
