Ternesio Terys and Arya Stark arrive at Braavos, and Arya is at first scared by the horn blown by the man inside the Titan of Braavos. The two then arrive at the House of Black and White on a boat. Arya lingers outside waiting for admittance, but is rejected by an elder man despite showing the coin Jaqen H'ghar had given her and mentioning their prior association. Arya begs the man to let her in, saying she has nowhere else to go. The old man coldly replies "You have everywhere else to go." Arya waits outside the House for days, endlessly reciting the names of the people she's going to kill, but eventually tosses away her coin and wanders off into the streets of Braavos. While hunting for pigeons, she encounters several young thugs who threaten to take her food and Needle. As she prepares to defend herself, the boys scatter when the man from the House of Black and White appears again. After following him back to the House, Arya demands he divulge his identity, and he returns to her the coin she threw in the water before. He peels off his face and reveals the man Arya knew as Jaqen. Stating that "a man is not Jaqen H'ghar," he responds to Arya's question as to who he really is with the answer "No one. And that is what a girl must become" as he indicates that Arya may now enter the House.
While waiting for Imani to return from St. Louis so he could propose to her, Trig broke up a fight between two teen boys at ROCK along with Shaad. One of the kids tricked him into getting violent and uploaded the video online, which reflected badly on Trig's involvement in ROCK's community outreach. Imani saw the video and decided against returning to Chicago, leaving Trig's proposal plan a major bust.
According to the DVD commentary, the last part of the episode where Seymour is waiting outside on the sidewalk was originally set to "Gayane's Adagio" from Aram Khachaturian's Gayane ballet suite, famously used in the sequence introducing the Discovery spacecraft in 2001: A Space Odyssey, but was replaced with the song "I Will Wait for You" from The Umbrellas of Cherbourg as sung by Connie Francis, which writer Eric Kaplan's grandparents sang and played on the piano while he was a child. The song "Everybody's Talkin'" by Harry Nilsson is also featured in this episode.
By the time the dust settled on the fifth season-opener of FOX's The Masked Singer, the singing competition series lived up to its promise to be a season unlike any other.

Ryan is on the phone with Soly, who's been stalking him and Luis about the co-listing for weeks. He threatens to pull the property off the market in 30 days if there's no action, but with such an overpriced space it seems nearly impossible to make a sale. The three meet for dinner several days later and Luis and Ryan present him with an $11 million offer. Soly is unimpressed, but Ryan and Luis convince him to counter and he comes back at $15 million. When the client counters at just $12 millon, he finally loses his cool: "Something is bothering me. I don't think you guys understand the real value of this apartment." Soly tells them he has other partners in the deal and has to go with different brokers. "We're just sitting, holding our dicks in our hands waiting for the brokers to come up with the right number," he says so eloquently. It's over. Ryan and Luis try to convince him otherwise, but his mind is made up. Oh, and that Soho deal he had with Ryan? That's over, too. Ryan tells him he's making a mistake, and Soly says only time will tell.
Still, they're all waiting on Strand to find a second plane to come save them with because I guess driving is just not an option for some reason. Seriously, can someone please let me know why driving to get them isn't on the table? Strand and his trucker pals have a truck and an endless supply of gas. Just go drive to wherever they are and pick them up. Yes, it will take longer to drive. The silver lining, however, is that driving won't result in yet another plane crash. Nobody can fly a plane!
The apartment's furniture is covered or displaced, and it seems the old man is about to move. Amos asks him how long he knew Lydia, and he says he had been living with her for the last ten years, introducing himself as Charles. Amos disregards his outstretched hand and asks him if he was good to her, to which Charles retorts that they were good to each other. Amos asks him how she died, and Charles is upset, as Lydia had spent every moment waiting for Amos to return and now he has nothing else to say, but Amos threatens him and he says it was an aneurysm in her sleep. He tells Amos that if he needs to beat Charles up to make himself feel better about abandoning Lydia, then he should do it. Amos asks if Lydia was happy, and Charles says he doesn't know because she kept a lot to herself, but he thinks she was. Charles breaks down, wondering what he is going to do without her. Amos backs down and accepts Charles' invitation for tea.
Amos is taken to a remote location in Baltimore, where he has to surrender his things. He is led to a luxurious apartment, where Erich is waiting. He talks about how strange it was to receive the message that Amos Burton wants to talk, as Amos Burton has been dead for about twenty years, and asks Amos "what the fuck are you doing, Timmy?" Amos replies that Lydia died, but it doesn't satisfy Erich, because they had a deal, which Amos wants to change. Erich reminds Amos that he killed the real Amos Burton for Erich, instead of killing Erich for Burton. As per their deal, Amos got a new name and a way out of the planet, and Erich made sure that Lydia was taken care of her whole life. Erich is uneasy because he thinks Amos is trying to come back after Lydia's death, but he assures him that it is not the case and he just wants Erich to let Charles stay in Lydia's apartment.
The group continue on their journey and come across a lone walker. Michonne says she's got it, and reaches reflexively for the katana that she lost to Terminus.

We open our episode on Carole waiting for the first customer of the day, which she proceeds to unsuccessfully bombard with a barrage of questions relating to the use of the leisure centre. Apparently, this is because Brittas wants her to have 100 questionnaires completed, meant to be part of a plan to overhaul the administrative structure of the centre. As this is going on, Tim reports that the toilet's backing up. During this, Brittas hints to Gavin that he may be in the running for management. Brittas also intends to fire Colin, considering him to be the weak link in the running of the centre.
