Episode Synopsis: Janette (Kim Dickens), Aunt Mimi (Elizabeth Ashley) and Annie (Lucia Micarelli) commit to new deals, with varying degrees of enthusiasm. Toni (Melissa Leo) may have found the killer she seeks, but Terry (David Morse) is still looking for his; L.P. (Chris Coy) meets his victim’s family; Antoine (Wendell Pierce) plays his bone in Texas; Sonny (Michiel Huisman) plays his music closer to home.

Show Summary: First, the people came back. Then, the crime. Now, more than two years after the near death of a great city, the money is starting to arrive, which would sound like a solution if this were some place other than New Orleans, and this was some other era but America at the millennium.

For the people of New Orleans, even the promises of redevelopment come with strings attached, and every dollar that shows up – whether from government disaster relief, or from venture capital, or even from those seeking to remake New Orleans in the wake of Katrina – carries with it new dynamics and new risks. National interest has waned, moving on to the next headline, but those who know and love the Crescent City have no choice. They must find their way back to what matters in the life of their city. However, little of what they can bring to bear yields a quick result, and nothing about New Orleans – its government, its police department and courtrooms, its school system – works as it should. Nothing is easy.

In the end, their only weapons are community. And culture
