The episode opens with a robbery of a Mrs. Winner's committed by two teenagers. Later, sometime before Christmas, Earn is "evicted" from his storage facility space. He then visits Alfred (who is under house arrest) and Darius (who is mutually at odds with Alfred). After Earn reviews the terms of his probation, Earn and Darius then visit Earn's uncle Willie to defuse a domestic disturbance. Willie is antagonistic even when the police arrive, but eventually simmers down and flees the house after talking to Earn about not repeating his history of professional and personal mistakes, but not before giving Earn a gold-plated handgun. Earn and Darius then return to Alfred's house, but Earn chooses not to ask to stay with them after Tracy, one of Alfred's friends and an ex-con, beats him to it, making him officially homeless.
