Derrick asks Keyshawn for a second chance as he realizes that he is losing his girlfriend due to his intolerable behavior.

P-Valley Season 2 Episode 8 Ending: Will Patrice Withdraw from Mayor Election?
After revealing that Andre’s father is a murderer, Wyatt targets Patrice by revealing details concerning her scandalous past. Even though Wyatt aims to defame her, Patrice owns her past and lets her voters know that she has succeeded in finding a godly way to overcome her sins, which increases her credibility. She also adds that she will be able to guide the people around her to a better way from their mistakes as someone who had done the same. Wyatt’s efforts to tarnish Patrice’s reputation not only fail but becomes advantageous to the pastor. Corbin realizes that Patrice is in a better position to win the election rather than Wyatt or Andre.
Corbin funds Andre’s election campaign believing that Andre’s win will turn out to be advantageous for him as a businessman. When Patrice stands a good chance to win, Corbin offers her money to withdraw herself from the election and promises more money if she does the same. Corbin doesn’t want the money he had already spent on Andre’s campaign to go to waste and to miss an opportunity to experience certain privileges that comes with having your best friend in the mayor’s office. Patrice arrives at crossroads as she finds it hard to decide whether she should withdraw from the election.
Patrice contests in the election only to teach Wyatt a lesson. She wants to make Wyatt realize that he is not going to acquire the mayor’s chair without even a competition. As a pastor with an unbelievable following, Patrice is already an influential figure in Chucalissa. Since she seemingly loves money more than authority, it will not be a surprise if she strikes a deal with Corbin and withdraws her from the election in return for more money. However, we cannot rule out Patrice prioritizing the election over what Corbin can offer her.
Patrice may see the bigger picture and remain a candidate in the election so that she can try to earn more money, more than Corbin can give her, by becoming the mayor. Since Chucalissa is attracting several business projects, she may realize that becoming the mayor may help her earn more money from these newly arriving entrepreneurs than Corbin’s offer.
