Poppy contemplates whether or not to show up at Tora's place (who told her about it? We discuss.) when a creep feeling entitled to Poppy's attention makes up her mind for her.
She runs to Tora with the thugs (not to be confused with thuglets) in hot pursuit. She still has the time to notice his shayna punim.
Meanwhile, Ben has found his mom. We see an incredibly elegant figure in a silk robe while poor Ben falls flat on his face. What a contrast.
We flash back to Candy and Ben trying to sell the pin. Is it really synthetic? Did the dealer recognize the symbol as clan and want nothing to do with it? And what is Scharch doing there?
Back at the game hall, Poppy gets to see Ares Street "in its fully glory" - everything Tora didn't want her to see. Yet Poppy is still sympathetic rather than condemnatory, just the way she sees Tora.
We end with Tora asserting their position and await what happens next!
