She agreed to go to PCU because she assumed they would be together. He tells her they never would have been in the same dorm anyway, but she admits she doesn’t want him getting caught in the middle of a mob war. She is concerned he’s talking about living there indefinitely, but he doesn’t see a problem. She is worried about her mom and Julian, and someone is now coming for Sonny, which makes him a target. She asks if he will have a bodyguard at school, she grew up around the mob, she loves Sonny, but everyone around him ends up getting hurt because of him. Just then, Sonny walks in, he heard everything.
Molly apologizes to Sonny, but he understands and tells TJ he will respect any decision he makes. Sonny tells him when it comes to parents, none of us are perfect. Before she leaves, Molly says sorry again before leaving, but Sonny says she never has to apologize for trying to protect the people she cares about. He sits down and the guard tells him they still have eyes on Jerome – they’re ready to make a move when ever he is.
