Winslow runs into June at Jezebel's. He takes her to a posh suite to talk, asking if Commander Lawrence brought her here. She replies she's there for fun, with the purpose of telling him everything that happens. Winslow opens the doors to the bedroom and asks her to get on the bed and strip her underwear off and lie on the bed face down. When he tries to force himself on her, she fights back and an altercation starts between the two of them, ending in June stabbing him multiple times with a pen and knocking him out with a statue despite his pleas to her that he has kids. His body was later cremated by several Marthas.
