Carroll takes a shot of whiskey to dull the pain from the stab wound and watches the 2011 video Molly made of her and Ryan. When Ryan makes a comment about how a bruise won't kill him because he's already dead, Carroll takes an interest and repeats it over and over again. He then calls Emma in and gives her very specific instructions. Once he's satisfied that she understands, he tells Emma that with Roderick dead, she's the only one he can trust. Carroll apologizes for slapping her earlier and she says that she forgives him, and he assures her that he's undaunted despite his wound...
