As we all know, Gustavo has decided to work with Franklin to get rid of Teddy. Gustavo meets with Franklin during Jerome's repast. They have this whole big plan -  It is extremely risky, but it also feels like the best option at the moment.
We must admit that we totally didn't expect the appearance of Louie in this plan. At the repast, Louie confronts Franklin about his plan. Franklin admits that his scheme will definitely fail, unless Louie agrees to assist him. Louie reluctantly agrees to team up with her nephew, but she also makes it obvious that she is only doing this to free herself from Teddy.

Later that night, Louie calls Teddy and lies about Franklin approaching her to ask for a debt. Louie says that she will catch Franklin during the exchange and bring him to Teddy's place.
It turns out that Franklin is planning to trick Teddy into thinking that Franklin has fallen into his trap. Their intention is to make the enemy lose his guard. The three agree that as long as Gustavo shows up to rescue Franklin, the plan would be fine.

Does Gustavo Get Arrested?

It's important to remember that Gustavo still needs to fulfill his responsibility with the DEA. Before going to pick up the drug, Gustavo says farewell to Xiamora and his nephews. His family has gotten all the necessary documents and money, and today is the day when they finally flee to an another country to stay away from this whole drug war.
After getting the drug from the Colombia gang, Gustavo meets up with the DEA agent Tony. The two of them are planning to go to Teddy's place. However, when Gustavo is making a call with Franklin, Tony finds out that Gustavo's family has already escaped. Tony gets extremely frustrated as he realizes that he has been played by Gustavo. Tony captures him on the spot.
To everyone's surprise, after spying on Gustavo for a pretty long period of time, Ruben decides to finally show up and rescue him from the DEA. Ruben takes Gustavo to Teddy's warehouse to "complete the mission".

Does Teddy Kill Franklin?

Louie and Skully meet Franklin at the warehouse. Franklin encourages them to beat him up. He believes that he must look bruised and beaten for this plan to be convincing.
Teddy requests Louie to simply drop Franklin off in a remote location. Louie agrees. She and Skully leave Franklin alone in the warehouse. Franklin is tied up by ducktape for several hours. However, when Teddy arrives, Franklin quickly notices that something is off as Gustavo is nowhere to be found. He belatedly realizes that he is now in absolute danger.
Teddy hangs Franklin from the ceiling. Franklin has a noose around his neck. He is forced to stand on a metal trash can. If Franklin makes just one small mistake and lose his balance, he will hang himself immediately. Teddy prepares a syringe full of poison to kill Franklin, as well as a barrel of toxic chemicals to dispose of his corpse. Well, we could only think of one thing while watching this scene - this is such a "white privilege" move.

Gustavo arrives just in time, right when Teddy is about to inject the poison into Franklin's body. Ruben seizes Teddy's gun and orders Gustavo to tie him up. He also tells Gustavo to bring Teddy's extra gun to him. Gustavo chooses to take Ruben down instead. The two of them get into an intense battle, which only ends after Gustavo manages to knock Ruben out.
The metal trashcan is knocked off during the fight, leaving Franklin hanging by a thread, or we could say a rope in this case. Franklin struggles to keep himself alive. Luckily, Gustavo successfully help Franklin escape from the noose, much to Teddy's surprise. He could never have guessed that Gustavo would turn his back away from him.
Teddy persuades Gustavo to stay on the CIA's side, but Gustavo doesn't seem to care about his words. The episode ends in a cliifhanger as Gustavo asks Franklin what he wants to do next. The betrayal totally shocks Teddy, and it seems like he won't be able to escape this time.
