Episode guide

Marshall Gregson continues abusing Xanax, but he realizes his mother under the alter of T might have been trying to protect him from Jason by showing him that he likes women, so he goes to the hospital to apologize to her. Meanwhile, Kate Gregson finds Gene in her house and escapes in Tara's car.

Max Gregson agrees to meet Tripp Johannesen, the man he believes is responsible for Tara's DID since he sexually assaulted her years before. They meet at the hospital under the supervision of Dr. Holden, and when Tripp refers to Tara as T, they realize that her alters were already around when she met him, meaning they had to have been created earlier in her life. This leads Tara to wildly transition from alter to alter.
