Roman inquired if Jey still harbored the desire to proceed with their plan, to which Jey admitted that he did, but emphasized that it was Roman who forced him into this situation. Jey disclosed that he had to go after Roman because Jimmy was hospitalized, which prompted Roman to assert that Jey failed to grasp the bigger picture.
