Late in Sunday’s episode of , it looked as if Saxe (Shane Johnson) was about to take his last breath, until Tommy (Joseph Sikora) and Ghost (Omari Hardwick) gave him a second life. But poor LaKeisha (La La Anthony) wasn’t so lucky. Her relocation to the suburbs with Tommy and Cash (Denim Roberson) didn’t last long, as she was ready to run so she wouldn’t have to snitch on Tommy.
