Left with no other option, they approach Armand Zarkarian with bribes in an attempt to evict Kreese, only for Armand to reluctantly void his deal with the LaRussos after a failed eviction attempt. Meanwhile, Miguel helps Johnny take photos in order to build up his Facebook profile in order to help him look impressionable for Ali, only to inadvertently meet Tory in the process. Enraged by the whole incident, Miguel calls Johnny out on his hypocrisy about abandoning people after helping them but manages to stand up in the process.
