Dwight is in his room (wearing Daryl’s vest) when Eugene comes in with his pickles. Eugene looks around and thanks him for his support. He brought the pickles as a gift for having his back in the meeting and to show that they will have faith that they’ll make it out of their pickle. Eugene spots Dwight’s chess board and asks if he made them. Before he leaves, he says that he knows why people think he was the traitor and that’s why he’s happy Dwight has his back.
