At Korban, Joe meets with a group of his new followers and thanks them for their commitment. He then says that they must receive their last teaching. One woman, Angela, volunteers to be first. Joe calls her up and asks her to tell them about the happiest moment of her life. Angela describes how she went to the Florida Keys with her fiancé and they went snorkeling. She felt that swimming in the ocean seemed like freedom, and Joe tells her that she has to give that gift to the entire world. Emma reveals a table with Carla strapped to it, and Joe tells Angela to give the gift of freedom to Carla. He gives Angela the knife and she takes it, saying that she can do it. Angela tells Carla that she's going home and that she loves her, and then drives the knife into her stomach. Joe assures her that she's freeing a soul and Angela, smiling, says that she did it as everyone applauds...

Episode Quotes
Ryan: You're gonna get through this, Mike. We both are.
Mike: How uncharacteristically optimistic of you, Ryan.
Ryan: Hey, I can be optimistic. Sometimes.

Emma: So what is the plan?
Joe: Same as it's always been--to regain our legacy and live forever in infamy.
Emma: That's a bumper sticker, Joe, it's not an answer.

Carrie: I heard you were a hero again today. You need to stop doing that. It's very stressful.
Ryan: No hero, not today.

Ryan: And then after all this is over, you and me... we're gonna go have a life. You know why? The universe owes us.
