He shows Gretchen information about a murder in the area, and, excited, she wants to go to the scene. The group visits Becca and Vernon to see baby Tallulah. Paul tells Vernon he's ready to follow through on the plan to flee to Mexico, but Vernon has become a doting dad and isn't going anywhere.

Edgar goes to see Doug Benson, planning to quit for the sake of his relationship with Dorothy; but he has a change of heart and decides he doesn't want to blow this career opportunity. He goes to Dorothy's apartment and sees she has packed up to move home to Jacksonville, having given up on show business. Lindsay asks Becca if she can move in with her and Vernon, to which Becca tells her that she should revel in her newfound freedom. Gretchen and Jimmy meet with her therapist Justina, who reveals she is moving to Iowa with her boyfriend. She has also been sharing Gretchen's rants with her hipster friends, who ask to hear them from Gretchen herself. Justina tells Gretchen that she has actually faced her problems and made progress. Edgar offers Dorothy's apartment to Lindsay, who sees a cockroach there but still smiles.
