Proctor Finally Slips Up
Proctor took a severe gamble when he decided to let his ex-wife die instead of calling for help. He had no idea the listening device conveniently placed on his daughter’s backpack was going to pick up him saying that his wife would never take away their child from him. During the visit from Warren and Saxe, they dropped the bombshell that Suarez is willing to testify against his client Ghost with some new information.
Armed with this new information, Proctor immediately runs to tell Ghost what he has learned and insists that he kills Maria before she drops a dime on him that could spell trouble for everyone. Ghost takes that into consideration before he tells Proctor to see himself out of his nightclub. Proctor’s problems don’t stop there though, Tommy sneaks up on him and puts a knife to this throat.
Under immense pressure, Joe also tells Tommy about Maria Suarez and urges him as well to kill her. I guess as some insurance in case Ghost passes on the opportunity to do so. Tommy takes the bait and leaves Joe alive for now, but Proctor is still in a world of trouble. Saxe catches up with the lawyer, and before he can head inside his home, he plays the recording of him letting his ex-wife die of an overdose.
While Proctor knows this recording is illegal, its something he doesn’t want his daughter to find out about. Proctor has a conversation with his brother Benny, and he breaks down the entire ordeal. Benny suggests Proctor uses the laptop that was taken from Bailey Markham as insurance, but Joe tells him it is no longer in his possession. Benny urges Joe not to snitch and hands him his gun, Proctor promises he won’t become a rat.
With no one else to turn too, Proctor decides that his place is too hot and decides to ask Ghost if he and his daughter can stay with him. Ghost was reluctant at first but eventually comes around to let his power attorney shack up with him. We will soon learn the penthouse will be the final place he ever sees.
