Back in Atlantic City, Eli has been thrown in a jail cell. Esther pays him a visit and rubs it in that he's now a murder suspect, courtesy of everything Halloran's had to say about Hans Schroeder. "If you have anything to say about your brother," Esther tells him, "please be in touch."
Margaret is at home, emptying her jewelry box into her purse, including the envelope of cash she's been hiding away. She takes it to see Father Sour-Face (who has to hide his glass of red wine before she's shown in). He asks after her little one, and talk turns to how Margaret wants to grasp at hope, however unlikely. She wants her daughter to live and to grow and to run -- is that so bad? She seems to feel guilty, like this is her punishment. The priest brings up their earlier conversation, about an act of devotion. She pulls out her cash and jewels, to give to the church. He's all "This is very unusual, but go on..." She wants to show that she's willing to atone, with this lucrative donation. The priest encourages this filthy and misguided perversion of faith and takes the cash. Gross me out. He then asks, "Shall we pray?"
Jimmy and Angela are at home, looking out to the beach, making fun of a fat sunbather together. She tells him Tommy's at Gillian's; he tells her he's going to have to leave town for a few days. He seems to want her to get angry at him over not telling her why he's leaving, but she neither has the energy nor the inclination. He knows she's dissatisfied. He's going to make it up to her, make everything right in this town, be the man she wants him to be. She tells him a joke she heard out in town today; "A man goes into a hotel, ' I'd like a room and a bath.' Clerk says he can have the room, but you have to take the bath yourself." It's not funny, but I guess it's sexy? Because the two of them start making out.
Hospital. Emily's test results are in, and they don't look great. Looks like the paralysis is going to be permanent. Margaret looks vacant and destroyed. "Did your daughter pray?" she asks. Like it's an accusation. She just looks betrayed by the universe. Doc says the next step is to measure Emily for braces and send her home. Meanwhile, Teddy is at home, looking at photo of his family from back when his Dad was alive. Then he puts the Ty Cobb ball in his box. This kid is weird and trouble.
