Ellen slowly opens the door to Patty's dark apartment. Why the fuck would she go over there? Ellen calls for Patty and Patty is upstairs. Ellen looks trepidacious as she heads upstairs into the lion's den. Patty is sitting in her pajamas on the bed surrounded by an explosion of clothing. She doesn't look up when Ellen comes in but explains that she was cleaning out her closet. She offers the clothes to Ellen, but then realizes Ellen won't want them. Ellen asks if Patty is alone and Patty flatly responds that Phil is at a hotel and Michael is with his "geriatric girlfriend" which is the funniest line all season. Patty still won't look up or make eye contact with Ellen. Ellen tries to console Patty about the shock of the affair, but Patty isn't shocked over the affair -- she's shocked that Phil got sloppy. She then looks at Ellen through the veil of her hair and wonders whether she should thank her for sending the photos. She could have been trying to protect her. Or she could have been feeling vindictive. Patty thinks it was vindictive. She really wants Ellen to learn to let things roll off her back. Ellen doesn't say anything during this drunken diatribe of Patty's that doesn't sound angry so much as resigned and sad. Ellen then asks why Patty leaked the pictures to the press, but Patty brushes it off as private. Ellen scoffs that it is hard to just let things roll off your back, but Patty doesn't really respond. Ellen then demands to know why she is there (girl, I was asking myself the same question) and Patty says that she wanted her to know that things will be required of them. The war against UNR is going to get ugly and she just wanted Ellen to know. As Patty sits drunk and depressed and crushed in bed, Ellen looks suddenly sad as she softly and almost sweetly tells Patty that maybe they are both the vindictive sort.
One month later Ellen shoots Patty, Patty collapses bloodied in the elevator. Agent Glenn rushes in and arrests her. Ellen looks surprised as Agent Glenn handcuffs her and takes her in.
