North Mammon[]

In the episode, Marcus locks Polly and her friends in the basement and tells them that two will leave alive while one will die, and the choice of who should die is theirs. Polly didn't want to kill anyone but Kelly convinced her to choose Brooke to be killed due to her cough worsening, suggesting they can get help for her once they escape. Polly starts to hesitate when Marcus drops two hammers into the basement for them to kill Brooke themselves, but Kelly remains adamant. Brooke manages to gather enough strength to take one of the hammers and strike Kelly in the head, killing her instantly. Polly gets some of Kelly's blood on her. Marcus then makes good on his promise and releases the two surviving girls, who later reunite with their parents. Polly is then asked by JJ to point Marcus out in a picture that is in the police station.
