At Jordan’s place, she tells Sonny, Curtis and Jason that she has to free Cyrus in order to get TJ back. Sonny thinks she should do it because once he’s on the outside, he won’t be as protected as he is on the inside. Jordan can’t be complicit with this, but Curtis points if Cyrus is released, they are signing his death warrant, but if he isn’t, it’s TJ they are condemning. However, he won’t let Jordan turn herself for framing Cyrus in to free him, and there must be another way. Jason believes there is a way she can exonerate Cyrus without taking the fall and that is to pin it on the others who are dead. She doesn’t like throwing her team under the bus, but Curtis asks her what would Taggert do? Sonny implores her to do what she needs to in order to save her son. She agrees. Sonny tells her they will be in touch, and he and Jason leave. In the hall, Jason and Sonny discuss the plan to help TJ and depart. Molly approaches seemingly have overheard them.
