Wendy's claims about Ben anger Ruth. Mel the P.I. tracks down Wendy's father. Ruth's trip to the Missouri Belle with Kerry doesn't go as planned.
At a press conference, Wendy announces planned construction of drug treatment centers financed by the Bydes’ foundation and gains sympathy by claiming Ben is missing as the result of a longstanding drug addiction. Sam is out of cash and banned from the casino, and Ruth hires him to manage the Lazy-O. While delivering a heroin shipment to the Shaw company, Javier tells Marty the FBI recently seized three others. Kerry and his friends visit the casino with Ruth. Kerry overdoses, and Ruth saves him with a Narcan injection.
Ruth tells Darlene the overdose won’t be traced to her, but Darlene kills Kerry’s driver after he makes a blackmail attempt. Mel visits Wendy and Ben’s father in North Carolina, who says Ben did not have a drug addiction. Sheriff Guerrero questions Ruth about the overdose. She later questions the Byrdes, and Wendy unsubtly points her to Ruth and Darlene.
Javi obtains police body cam video from the recent seizures and discovers Maya was present. Marty claims it is a coincidence, but Javi refuses to sell to the Shaws until the Navarro cartel mole is identified. As a stopgap, Marty offers to buy all Ruth and Darlene’s heroin.
