Synopsis Edit

The episode begins with two young men robbing a local Mrs. Winter’s, stealing an eighth of weed from the storage closet but the manager fires back at them with an AK-47 as they are driving away. The passenger door opens and a woman stumbles out of the getaway car, covered in blood as she cries in horror. Across town, Earn gets evicted from his storage unit and heads over to Alfred and Darius's place, who appear to be fighting. He gets a ride from Darius to meet his parole officer. During the ride over, Darius tells him about "Florida Man", to Earn's disbelief. His parole officer informs him that he has to take drug classes and that it will cost him $325, money he doesn't have at the moment. Earn gets a call from Alfred who tells him to go over to their uncle Willie's. Apparently, he's taken his girlfriend hostage. It turns out that he's locked her in a room because she stole $50 from him. Earn goes to let her out, but Willie warns him not to open one of the doors because there is a live alligator in there. Earn talks to Yvonne and gives her $100 to give to Willie. The police show up and ask Willie to step outside, but he threatens to let the alligator loose on them instead. They don't believe he has an alligator until the neighbors all confirm that he is the "Alligator Man". Earn asks the cops to give him 5 minutes so he can convince Willie to comply with their wishes. They end up arguing and Earn admits that he's scared of having Alfred leave him. Willie gives him a gold handgun to take and tells Earn to get rid of the chip on his shoulder so that he doesn't end up like him. As Earn is leaving, Willie lets the alligator loose which ends up resting in front of the house, distracting the police long enough for Willie to flee the scene. Earn heads back to Alfred's where he shows them the gun Willie gave to him as they both laugh and tell Earn get rid of the gun. Before Earn can ask to stay over, he learns that Alfred's other cousin, a man named Tracy, already is. Instead, Earn calls it a night and leaves.
