This weekend there will be another memorial service, and June will lead a prayer. Luke (O-T Fagbenle) is aware. She must remain secure. The commanders are gathering once more. Lawrence and Nick want to discuss the shooting. She is not a target, he claims. Lawrence argues that she might be. According to Lawrence, it is not now company policy to execute former citizens. Nick is not pleased with that exchange.
On their hands and knees, the handmaids are mopping the floors. They are thoroughly cleaning the place from top to bottom. Everyone joins in as Janine starts singing.

Another aunt claims that Janine’s generosity has caught people’s attention. She must locate a position for herself. Janine should allow Aunt Lydia back into her life, Aunt Lydia suggests. When Janine responds negatively, Aunt Lydia makes room for more conversation. She claims that welcoming Janine into their homes will complete the new image that Lawrence is attempting to present.

June is shot in the head whenever she is in front of a window. When Mark Tuello (Sam Jaeger) enters, the group is in the kitchen and he wakes Nichole. The shooter was caught.

Mark and Nick are at the medical facility. Nick believes it would be better if June didn’t know he was there, but Mark gives him some space so he can meet June privately before Luke gets back. Nick must sign a contract that Mark has prepared. Mark affirms that he will take Nick at his word, but Nick adds he is unsure of its validity at this time. For June’s safety, he has agreed to share information with the US. Nick responds that June didn’t need him and that he was nothing when Mark asks him why he never ran with June. Mark is opposed. Luke bought a gun. They must defend themselves because the cops also despise refugees. According to Luke, this will not be like Boston. She claims it wasn’t his fault, but he won’t allow anyone to harm her. On the eve of Lawrence and Naomi’s nuptials, Naomi meets with Janine for a difficult chat that calls for Janine to behave herself. Finally, Naomi invites her to take part in the family portraits.
