Back in the RV, Manfred keeps driving. He's planning on driving to Vegas. He has a flashback to his youth when Manfred was being bullied and Xylda put a gypsy curse on the kids teasing him.

She wants Lem to leech away Creek's pain. Olivia says no. Lem is angry that Olivia spoke for her. They argue about Olivia telling him she's going to be leaving at some point.
