At the mob restaurant Carly sobs on Jason's shoulder. She thinks Michael is making the biggest mistake of his life by hanging out with Abby! Jason urges Carly to let this go, but her words bother him. After Carly leaves, Michael arrives upset. He tells Jason he went to see Abby at work to better understand her. Michael compares Abby stripping for money to him feeling powerless in prison; on the stage Abby is powerless to the leers and jeers around her. The men treat her like an object, which is how he felt in prison. Jason thinks Michael did the right thing by leaving the club when he did and to make sure he avoids situations where he could lose his temper.

Michael gets a text from Abby and meets her on the street. He confesses why he went to see her strip and how it angered him to see those men leer at her. Abby frets that now Michael will only see her as a stripper, but Michael assures her that's not true. If anything he sees that they are more alike than he realized. Abby is moved by Michael and he leans in for a kiss ...
