Following Fruit's murder Marlo Stanfield meets with his lieutenants including the bloodthirsty Monk and Tote and more reserved Partlow. Tote suggests they kill all of Lex's crew but on the suggestion of Chris, Marlo decides that since Lex was acting alone, he alone must die.
Little Kevin buys snacks from Randy, tells him to keep the change, and in exchange for the gratuity asks Randy to deliver a message to Lex - that Patrice wants to meet him behind the playground after 8pm. When Lex arrives for the meeting he finds Snoop and Partlow lying in wait. Bunk and Carver try to find Lex on his usual corner, but when they are unsuccessful that night, they decide to return the next day. Later, Randy sells food to Bodie's crew as they play dice. Little Kevin gives Randy a good deal of cash for following his instructions and tells him that Lex is dead. Meanwhile, Snoop and Chris Partlow board up another vacant row house after hiding Lex's body within. Randy sits on his stoop brooding over his involvement until he is called inside by his foster mother. Bunk is seen in the season trying to figure out who killed Lex.
