Valentin interrupts and repeats his promise to keep her parole officer away if she’ll sign the paperwork giving him control of the proxy votes of her children. She thinks and signs. Valentin smirks and walks off. Soon, her parole officer shows up to harangue her. Dolores is called away and returns a moment later to announce she has been transferred. She introduces Sam to her new parole officer, Owen. He assures Sam she can stay with Jason as long as she wants. He leaves them alone and Sam tells Jason they can finally be a family again thanks to Valentin. Stone Cold grips her hand and wakes up. Down the hall, TJ catches his mom on the phone, discussing her possible resignation with the mayor. He asks Jordan if her endorsement of Cyrus is getting her fired. She assures him it’s not and she’s only trying to make amends for the way her colleagues mistreated Renault. He respects her for doing what she thinks is right.
