Danny has joined Gamblers Anonymous and he's come to make amends to Alex. Danny had seen Alex's daughter Evelyn and suggests Alex try amends as well. Ike assigns Ernesto and Kai to a case of a grifter passing counterfeit bills at resorts. Alex suspects Danny and finds a fake compartment filled with bills at the bottom of his golf bag. Danny tells him it's the money he got in exchange at the airport. The large Yee family from Singapore has taken over the resort and Alex fears Danny is there to bilk them. The hitman arrives at the resort. Alex joins Danny and two Yees on the golf course. They play a high-stakes round. Alex wins and takes the money so Danny won't.
