Parole hearing. Richmond watches as his wife's killer also riffs on forgiveness. She thinks it's against human nature and a conscious choice. She wonders if it's impossible to ask forgiveness but does so anyway. Fueled by rage, Richmond heads into the men's bathroom and punches the bejesus out of the mirror.
Back at his HQ, Gwen and Jamie are watching a news report about incidents of vandalism and race-related troublemaking that have arisen as a result of the FBI raid on the mosque. All Jamie can think about is how Richmond just lost the Somali vote. He thinks they need to go ahead with the Adams smear campaign now before it's too late. Gwen argues that Richmond won't choose the low road. She insists she knows him better than Jamie. "Then you know he's weak, Gwen," says Jamie, "and you know he's going to lose this thing because of it." Jamie casually mentions that there are lots of other ways a story can hit the media. Gwen takes his meaning and threatens to expose him if he goes forward, effectively ending his political career. Gwen's phone rings. It's Richmond telling her to go ahead with the Adams story.
Elsewhere, Linden is laying into Jack for going through her files and putting the Larsens through such pain. "Figures," he brats. "You only care about other people's families." Linden says she's had enough of Jack's smart ass remarks. He throws it in her face to send him to his father's. She says it's unlikely to happen since Jack's father left them 10 years ago. She tells him, "I'm all you got."
Mitch returns home to tell Stan about Rosie's shirt. Stan isn't interested and asks her gruffly, "Where have you been." She claims she's been at the park. Mitch gets distracted by Rosie's room, which Stan has systematically emptied. "We gotta focus on the future, Mitch..." She says it's only been a week. He brings up her slip-up that morning and says they have responsibilities. She digs deep, saying he was the irresponsible one who let Rosie stay home alone the weekend before. Stan dishes as good as he takes, saying Rosie wouldn't have rebelled if Mitch hadn't been so strict. Mitch walks away in a huff.
