"Jessica, listen to me. We know you're helping her. That makes you an accomplice. I don't want to see you get hurt. You're one of the good ones. I believe that. But you have to prove it. Your mother's done. Do you understand what I'm saying? It doesn't matter what she does next. She crossed a line she can't come back from. But you haven't. Not yet."
Eddy Costa to Jessica Jones

Despite "quitting" Malcolm Ducasse still fixes up Jones apartment as a last send off. He then calls to confirm an appointment with Linda Chao, shaves his head, and gets dressed.

Alisa looks in front of her on the road and sees a two-car crash with flames everywhere leading to gas. Alisa gets the kid and tells Jones to save the dad. Jones then finds the mother and lifts up the trailer that is laying on top of her. They take her to safety, but see that there is a man in the other truck. Jones goes to save him, but Alisa tells her not to as it is too dangerous. Jones argues that she won't let him die, so Alisa goes instead. As Jones runs after her, the truck blows up, leaving Jones to think Alisa has died. However, as she looks further she sees Alisa and the man coughing in the grass. After getting back on the road, Jones tells Alisa that she will help her which gets Alisa to scream with joy.

She also tells him that she needs papers as well. Arocho asks her intentions and if she really wants to, if she could really just throw him away. Suddenly, Jones notices cops outside and realizes they want her to lead them to Alisa. Jones kisses Arocho goodbye and makes her escape. When seeing Alisa, she tells her they are driving North.

Jones finds out that there is a phone in the car from the kid that they saved. A call goes through from Eddy Costa who tells her he believes in her but she has to stop her mother or else she is an accomplice. The police are able to get a location from the call.
