Later, Rhodes went to Statesville prison and used the alias of Jospeh Glynn to speak to Vincent. Instead, he met a man named Orpheus, who explained that Vincent was fine, but he convinced him to take the meeting.

Ciara asked who the new boss was, and Rhodes asked why he should tell her. Ciara said that it had to be someone at the prison and speculated Vincent's old boss Eve Donovan, but Rhodes smirked that she was cold. Ciara wondered what Rhodes new boss would do to her, but Rhodes said he already said too much.
