Sitting in the airport, Magenta and Genesis wait on their flight after spending a few days in New York City. Before they go to Ohio for NBA All-Star Weekend they're making a pitstop in Kentucky since they have a few days. Gee hasn't been home since Thanksgiving and before that his father's funeral. It's overdue for him to visit his mother, Misty.

With her AirPods in, Magenta stares at her MacBook screen on Facetime with her therapist. "That's a completely natural response to trauma," she says after Gen detailed the flashback she had.

The thought of it not being Caprice after going through all this, she needed to tell someone. She couldn't ignore it. She wouldn't feel right. To willfully forget or brush it off is the same as lying to herself and everyone. She's seen too many times someone go to prison for something they didn't do. She wants to get rid of all doubt for her own sake.

"When bad things happen, sometimes the brain doesn't process the memory correctly. So memories can feel like they're happening now and they shift. The face could've been a manifestation of everything you've been through creating this monster of all the victim blaming you've endured," her therapist goes on making her sigh in relief.

"And if still in doubt, call the D.A. on your case. Obviously, one flashback doesn't ruin the entire case. That's not hardcore physical evidence like what they have. Just ask if they have any possibilities of it being anyone else."
