The scene opens with a thud and the sound of someone's voice. It's Alexa, and she's warning Alek that he's about to do something he hasn't done in a long time. She tells him to "hunker down" and "suck it up" , but he can't stop. He's going to have to do it "seriously" if he wants to keep his job. He says he'll "predicate" himself if he needs to, and they head off to have sex.
