But he shakes it off quickly and turns back to the topic at hand. He tells her she doesn't have to do this; she can turn around now. She says she can't, because he's seen her face. JC says he'll have a little talk with him and she can trust him. He asks for the keys to her van. She doesn't want him to walk free. What does she get? JC says she gets a second chance, to let go; she gets her life back. He asks what Gabrielle gets, and he says she gets to keep her memory of Megan. Only it's really the other way around, isn't it? Tillman doesn't get this. She asks who JC is, why is he here. He says he already told her that everyone needs someone to talk to. She gives him the keys and cries as he holds her hand over the table.
Bench asks JC where Tillman is. JC says she's fine; he has her van. And Benton. Bench asks what he's going to do, and JC says they're going to have a little talk. Then he asks Bench why he does this -- the numbers, all of it. Bench seems like he wants to tell JC, but instead he just says he has his reasons. He changes the subject and asks about their little problem with Detective Carter. JC says it's taken care of.
Fuscoe's being led into Carter's office, and he thanks the cop leading him there. The cop -- the same one who was picking up a prostitute earlier -- tells him to spare him that; he says he was told to leave him here and not ask questions, so that's what he's doing. But now he wants Fuscoe to call his friend and tell him to lose the pictures of him. He threatens Fuscoe that if he messes up here, he doesn't care who's protecting him; he'll see to it that he fries. He leaves, and Carter walks by. She makes small talk with Fuscoe about the picture of his kid, then he asks her about the lockup robbery, and she asks if he just transferred. They finally introduce themselves to each other, and he says it looks like she's stuck with him. She smiles.
Benton wakes up at the water. Looks like JC took him to the Montauk vacation rental after all. He looks out at the sailboats and happiness, then across the table he's sitting at. JC's across from him, and there's a gun on the table. Benton asks where he is, and says the woman in the loft tased him. JC says he told her to leave; she isn't cut out for this. "She fixes people. Not like us. We break 'em." Benton asks who JC is, but JC's not answering that for Benton of all people. Benton asks what JC's going to do to him, and JC says he honestly hasn't decided yet. He asks Benton if people ever really change. "I mean, you hurt innocent people. And I... well, I, for a long time, I killed people like you." Benton says this is a mistake; he's not who JC thinks. JC puts his hands by the gun, and Benton's like, "Okay. I've done some things. But I won't do it again." He asks JC to let him go, and JC says he could do that because he'll know JC's watching him for the rest of his life and would stop him if he hurt anyone. And maybe Benton could change, and so could JC. But the truth is people don't really change, do they? Benton nervously stutters that they can. He thinks he can, and he doesn't think JC's going to kill him because he can see inside that he's a good person, a good man. JC scoffs, "Good?" Then he gets sad and says he lost that part of himself a long time ago and isn't sure he can find it. He says maybe he's supposed to do what the good people can't, or maybe there are no good people, anyway, only good decisions. Benton tells him not to do something he'll regret, so JC asks what he thinks he'd regret more: letting Benton live, or letting him die. He puts his hands by the gun again, and tells Benton to help him make a good decision. The camera pans out to show them both and the view behind them. And... that's the end. So far, JC's only killed people when absolutely necessary, so I'm going to assume he doesn't kill Benton unless we learn otherwise.
