Anne, Davis, Sonny, and company have an impromptu memorial service for Harley and make a shrine at the site. Robert asks Antoine for help starting a street band. Alex stops by and adds a wicked guitar solo to DJ Davis numbers. Antoine finally pays a cab fare in full. LaDonna decides to sell the bar and takes her stress out on Antoine and later the rest of her family. James says that the new record will stay in the red as a result of spending so much time in the studio. Delmond has other ideas. Hidalgo goes around buying individual houses on spec. Annie and Davis pack up Harley's things for goodwill and let Sonny keep his guitar. Sofia begins to enjoy her new job at the coffee house. Janette knocks her co-workers socks off with fried chicken and rice flour waffles luncheon and is later asked to lead with her own southern specialties. Toni tells Terry that she has casings from the shootings. Lt. Colson later finds a cache of relevant evidence. Davis has to bump one of his songs off of the sampler to add Lil Calliope's new hit. Sonny makes a pass at Linh and learns he has to secure her father's permission. Wanda curses Antoine and walks off stage after he upstages her song with quips. Delmond's all-star band prefers the New Orleans take of the Indian/Jazz song. Harley's sister drops by to pick up Harley's "This Machine Floats" acoustic guitar and mentions he was from Washington—not Texas.
