After a huge blow-up, the action slows down this week as Fuego and Madam find common ground.
Madam tells Blue and Tommy she's considering meeting the Concierge alone. She also thinks he's the one behind hacking Fuego's computer, and they wonder how long it will take before Fuego breaks. Babyface rushes into her office and tells them Fuego's car blew up and Madam is shocked because she didn't hear it. A few weeks ago, two officers outside the club heard a gunshot from deep within Madam's basement. I guess Madam wasn't blessed with the same supersonic hearing.
Madam later comes to Fuego's crib and vows to handle the person stalking him. In return, she wants him to hack into the camera feed at the hospital, specifically the third floor. After Fuego sends the footage she requested, she buys him a new car to replace the one that blew up. He hesitates to accept it, but Madam considers it a token of appreciation and props him for his display of loyalty.
Amp and Dime meet at his place so he can tell her he's a better man and beg her for another chance. He's cleaned up his act, etcetera, etcetera. She isn't sure she can trust him but he continues to profess his love, and they make out on the couch before she realizes she's in the show's most tedious storyline and leaves.
Rayshon calls Trouble from jail. He was finally booked for Jack Watson's murder, and bail is $250,000. Rayshon wants her to come up with the money. "I'll see what I can do," she tells him. Imagine having to rely on Trouble! As Trouble and Champ plan their next robbery, she raises the topic of Rayshon's bail. They're hesitant about helping him, even though their plan involves potentially stealing enough to get him out. They refuse to connect these very large dots. In a rare display of intelligence, Trouble shares with Blue that Rayshon is in jail in the hope that she tells Madam, which she does.
Madam calls Big D with his first loyalty assignment, and he assures her he aims to please. Big D can sneak through the police station's only hallway and overhears District Attorney Rodds commiserating with Casanova about Tandy's mayoral run. She's leading in the polls, and Tandy assured Rodds she'll honor any agreements Rodds had with Jack, including eliminating Madam. When Rodds departs, Big D tells Casanova that Fuego is a good guy and wants to know what info they have on him. Casanova refuses to give up anything and encourages Big D to leave Eden.
Big D shares everything he learned with Madam, and she tells Blue to put a detail on the District Attorney. Madam arrives at the station with $250k in cash to bail out Rayshon. There, she runs into Rodds, who doesn't appear to have her own office. Rodds says she and Tandy are besties, and she can't wait to put Madam in her place. Madam tells Rodds she's in over her head.
In the end, Madam asserts her dominance over Tandy. She wants Rodds eliminated and is willing to use a statement from Rayshon about Jack Watson as leverage.
