Eric, presumably since he knows that it was actually Damien's perjured testimony that got Ben arrested in the first place, goes meekly with him as he strong-arms their way down the street, into the city, into the sweat and heat of a New York City night. Tomorrow, the latest assault on Lily can begin. But for tonight? It's been a while. Lots of time to make up for.
Next week: Eric turns eighteen. Don't be gross.
