Fen talks about how Carmine tortured the family and how he had to protect his mom.
Carmine opens his door to Michael and asks how he found him. Michael says dead men don't tell tales, but he's guessing his story is good. Michael pushes his way in. Carmine asks how he put it together. Michael says the evidence didn't add up.

Carmine admits he was supposed to go into witness protection, but went to see Lauren at her awards ceremony. He grins about Fen putting a bullet in him and says the feds patched him up. He got full immunity. Michael chuckles that he could kill him, since he's technically already dead. Carmine counters that Michael needs him. Michael wants him to exonerate Fen and in return, he won't tell Womack he's alive. Carmine says no deal. Michael says he'll help whether he likes it or not.
