Nats, of course, tells his wife about what the twins are planning and about going into fentanyl. She tells him he shouldn’t tell her things, but he wants to tell her everything because she is his wife and doesn’t want to keep things from her.

“Neither did I”
Domenic Cosoleto is outside his house smoking when Declan shows up to get some answers. The brief conversation ends with them giving each other warnings.
