Jerry returns to his car at Whiteman Airport after the shill aircraft departs. Davila is excused from surveillance obligation. J. Edgar hears Harry’s telephone ringing within the truck and finds missed calls from each Maddie and Honey Chandler.
Maddie arrives residence to an empty home with dinner. She texts her dad to seek out out the place he is. A nondescript voicemail from Jerry merely says that he and Harry are working late and she or he shouldn’t stay up waiting.
Jerry picks the lock to a gate at Whiteman Airport and locations a tracker beneath the shill van.
The subsequent morning Maddie tries Jerry’s number to no avail and then reaches out to Lt. Billets when she finds her dad continues to be not residence. Grace is stunned and concerned Harry has not returned however does her greatest to reassure Maddie. When J. Edgar arrives to the workplace, Billets tells him she needs to name command. Jerry firmly disagrees suggesting that may put Harry’s life in peril. She agrees to attend for now.
Again to the longer term
We finally revisit the time bounce from episode 1, the suspenseful moment the place Dominic’s gun is pointed at his head. We know now that Harry disabled the gun per Nellie’s recommendation before going undercover. Dominic maintains the duvet and looks visibly shaken when head honcho Walsh pulls the trigger regardless that it does not hearth.
Walsh taunts Dominic about his service within the Special Forces saying he isn’t so special anymore but simply an addict. Dominic takes his backpack and Walsh retains the gun. He returns to his bunk on the bus.
As Dominic seems out of the bus at midnight, he sees truck lights. Packing containers are being transferred from the truck to a storage container in the distance. He then writes something on a bit of paper, folds it tightly and places it in his pocket.

A special quid professional quo
The subsequent morning, Dominic takes a detour by means of the bushes as he exits the moveable john. He sneaks over to the storage container and takes a peek contained in the window. He spies barrels marked “flammable”, a respirator, and packing containers marked “Tayah Toy Co.” from China.
Dominic makes his approach back to the primary camp space and sees Liz sitting down for a smoke. He thanks her for warning him about Trey the night time before and that he “owes” her. She suggests certainly one of his oxy tablets. He complies and provides her one of the drugs.
Sidebar: Apparently, the quid professional quo doesn’t stop there. Regardless that the capsule was in response to her useful info, Liz does not view the transaction as ending there. She follows the change by nonetheless asking Dominic what he needs. He replies that he would really like her to answer some questions. I discover it heartbreaking that Liz’s mindset is so targeted on what she has to “do” for someone else. Does the idea that she all the time “owes” something stem from being an addict, a grieving mom, or both?
Dominic asks her for the following:
- What is their location?
- Does anybody ever simply try to depart the operation?
- Does she really need to get off medicine?
First, she describes their location as “south of nowhere”. Secondly, she recollects that when one of the shills attempted to go away, the minions “disappeared him”. Liz then rubs her arm and talks concerning the carpal tunnel that initiated her drug use. She opens up about dropping her daughter who would go away when her mom was tousled on the medicine. The tormented lady also tells Dominic that her daughter was murdered and the case stays unsolved.
Finally, Liz asks Harry to go away. She believes she has informed him enough and does not want the others “to get the improper concept”.

Tom is dismissed
Maddie is busy redacting paperwork with a Sharpie marker. Tom means that Maddie carry out the redaction online. She dismisses the thought saying that may not cross muster with the Assistant District Lawyer.
Tom is a clerk in CIU and subsequently is aiding Christina Henry with the second take a look at the Borders conviction. He brings Christina the unique stock of Danielle Skyler’s jewellery. Christina shares that Danielle’s condominium, her family’s house and protected deposit field have been all searched for the pendant, nevertheless it was not discovered. When Tom suggests that’s because Borders took the pendant, Christina does not affirm. She merely agrees that is the unique narrative.
Tom is left within the lurch again at his family’s social gathering. Maddie attends the get together as promised to Tom. She doesn’t look very snug, nevertheless, within the fancy home full of friends. We first see her standing alone on the occasion. She places on a brave face when Tom comes over to speak. He asks about Maddie’s family. She replies that her family is “smaller”. She excuses herself to the restroom and never returns to the social gathering.
Pharmacy run derailed
Walsh’s minions transport Dominic and the other shills by van from the encampment to Crown Valley Pharmacy. Whereas the addicts are in line ready for his or her prescriptions to be crammed, Dominic browses the shelves and pockets a field of perfume whereas rigorously avoiding the safety digital camera’s angle. He then breaks the road stepping in front of Trey and behind Elizabeth. Dominic slips the perfume in Liz’s backpack. She feels his touch and yells at him.
Dominic feigns innocence, exits the line and leaves the pharmacy. Simply earlier than he leaves he tells the safety guard that Liz has stolen merchandise in her backpack. The safety guard tells the pharmacist to name the cops. Dominic “warns” van drivers Cleek and Carter that Liz was caught stealing and the police are en route.
Walsh’s guys call everybody to the van immediately and usher them out as shortly as attainable.

A torturous encounter

Edgar joins Vega at the website until Pierce can get there. The three detectives observe that Oscar’s fingers have been broken one by one, presumably as a torture gadget to gather info. Jerry points out that solely the fingers on one hand have been broken and assumes that Oscar finally gave up Junior’s location in Bakersfield.
Vega and Pierce depart for Bakersfield and J. Edgar asks Pierce to ship him contact info for the FAA.
Another assembly with Walsh
The shills (minus Liz) return to the camp. Dominic collects his capsule ration after which notices Vardy yelling on the stray dog. Vardy pulls a gun on the dog and Dominic intervenes and tells Vardy it’s “dangerous luck to shoot a canine”. Vardy grimaces however puts down his gun.
Walsh is indignant that the aircraft can’t arrive till a lot later because of the temperature. He seems very targeted on shifting on to one thing else.
Later, Dominic known as once again to satisfy with Walsh at the camp. Walsh questions Dominic concerning the state of affairs that went down on the pharmacy. Trey has accused Dominic planting the fragrance in Liz’s backpack. Dominic counters saying that Liz and Trey are the ones “operating a grift”. He brings up the canine and the way Dominic stopped Vardy. They’re suspicious about Dominic hold getting involved in every thing.
Dominic says if he is being an issue, they might send him house. Walsh allows Dominic to return to the camp but reiterates his suspicions to his males after Dominic exits. He additionally tells the lads to offer Trey a “ultimate run bonus” to eliminate him.
Later that night time, we see Walsh and his males hoisting drinks in some type of celebration. We suspect they are toasting to ending the capsule mill scheme and shifting on to one thing greater in Glamis with the contents of the storage container.
We see a shot of Maddie out on the balcony at residence after leaving Tom’s get together. She stares out into the space at the stars. This scene shifts to Harry mendacity on the bus staring up on the similar stars. It’s a lovely and haunting transition on display as the daddy and daughter worry about one another.
Who’s Jacques Avril?

J. Edgar inquires concerning the gentleman who leaves their desk upon Jerry’s arrival. They confer with the man as a “road supply” named Jacques Avril (or Jackie April) and says he owns a number of 7-11 franchises in South Bay. Jerry wonders why a man from South Bay would come such an extended distance for coffee. Marcos tells Jerry that Jacques likes the beignets there because it reminds him of residence. Where? New Orleans? No, apparently, Jacques is from Haiti.
Later, Jerry pulls up information articles concerning the FRAPH Militia slaying lots of and a flyer a few “Haiti Help Group”. One other article on his pc display is titled “South Bay Businessman Builds New Life”. Jerry compares the pictures within the two articles; they seem like the identical man. Is Jacques Avril greater than a “road supply”?
