At the Beacon Hotel in Harleys room, Harley prepares for Guss memorial dinner at Company. Rummaging through a drawer she finds his badge.
At the undisclosed location, Gus and Alan argue about why they are in their predicament. Alan says they are there because Gus kidnapped him. Gus says they are there because he had to protect his wife. Gus whines that he has to get back to his life, and Alan tells him that its been a month and Harley has given up on him like everyone else has. Gus tells Alan that no one is going to mourn him. His wife married him for his money and his family wishes he was still locked up in the mental hospital.
Outside their room, a smiling Beth brings in groceries for her victims.
At Quinn's room, Coop emerges from the shower to find Lizzie reading an article about her grandfather Alans memorial service. Coop encourages her to go but Lizzie declines saying that she wants to be with his family at Company for Guss memorial dinner and that she feels funny what with her family always trying to destroy his family.

Alan says he wishes he could have been there at his funeral to see the diplomats, C.E.O.s, celebrities all giving speeches marking the loss of this great man. Gus tells him hes not a great man.
