Just kill my son.
He's the one responsible for your son's death.
Jag is in the hospital with a bullet in his chest.
- What happened out there? - He didn't tell you? Insurance release for Jag.
They need a family member to sign.
- Where's my father? - Can't help you.
It's fine.
I'll have Travis look into it.
I know he used to be a cop, but now he works for me.
County's bringing someone in to be acting sheriff - while I'm down.
- I don't need any help.
Yeah, you do.
I have information that you want.
I want to make a trade.
Wolf told us about his deal with the Syndicate.
If you run, they will find you.
- - We know you made a copy of something that wasn't yours.
You need to tell me where it is.
Phoebe deserves more out of this life.
Give Phoebe up.
- It's your only good option.
- Ohh.
Oh, my goodness.
What are we doing here? Just need to grab something real quick.
- In and out.
- Nancy is waiting.
- I'll let you - I'm hungry.
I know, sweetheart.
I am, too.
That's what I said! Um, what are you in the mood for, huh? Uh, pizza, barbecue? Um, cheeseburgers.
Cheeseburgers! Now we're talking.
Are we going home now? Yes, yes.
Soon, sweetheart.
We are gonna go up to Canada.
But first I need to take care of a little something, okay? Okay.
You know maybe it's better if I go in alone.
Well, if it were me, I would want to see a friendly face.
Shall we? Look who I found.
Hello, son.
How ya feeling? Okay, all things considered.
You almost got me killed.
I almost got you killed? That That's not what happened.
So what did happen? Jag, do you want to say it, just so we can both hear it? Yeah, well, dear old dad here decided to offer up my life for his.
That's not what I was doing.
I was going to get help.
Yeah, for yourself, maybe.
You left me there and I got shot.
No, you got it wrong, son.
So tomato, tomah-toh then.
That's enough, Reenu.
All that talk about family was just a lie.
You tried to save yourself by abandoning your son.
That's what happened.
I won't be mocked.
You two need to know who's in charge here.
I know who's in charge.
I have nothing more to say here.
- You need to be careful.
- I got this.
You rest up.
Cassie, good to have you back.
I'll see ya in there.
Hey, you, in the boots! You know anything about cars? Power steering pump, particularly.
This thing is just Oh.
Sorry, I thought you were a guy.
The The boots.
Oh, so I can't help you with the car.
Well, come on, girls don't know anything about cars.
Excuse me.
- Move to the side, please.
- Okay.
That's your pump right there.
Son of a bitch.
- You're good.
- Yeah.
Okay, but the the leak's coming from The leak is coming from underneath there, and so I just Truth is, I'm worried about it getting in the waterways.
It's bad for the trout, conservation, all that.
So, you fish? Fish? - Yeah.
- Fish that's with a fishing pole? Okay, you're funny.
I'm being an ass.
Beau Arlen.
Cassie Dewell.
I know who you are.
You do? Well, it's a small town.
And law enforcement's one big, not so happy, dysfunctional family, right? Yeah.
You in law enforcement? - Mm, well, I was in Houston.
- Mm.
But then I'm sorta retired well, on the bench.
But now I'm un-retired, so Stepping in for Sheriff Tubb? You are good.
- Small town, right? - Okay.
Well, good luck with that.
Jenny Hoyt, she's my old partner.
Oh, yeah.
Yeah, I heard about Jenny Hoyt.
I can handle her.
You keep thinking that.
Um have a good day.
Oh, yeah the weekly hankie meeting.
I hear it helps.
You going to that, too, or are you just here to get some dirt on Jenny Hoyt? No, no, I keep trying to go in there, but something always seems to stop me.
Today it was Pedro.
Sprung a leak on me.
You really don't know anything about cars, do you? I don't.
Could you give me a hand, please? Okay, I'll help you out.
- Okay.
All right.
- Yeah.
All right, Pedro.
Her hands are gonna be softer than mine.
Oh, hey.
You're back.
Yeah, and working on no sleep.
Where's Cassie? Jenny's.
She should be back soon.
So what's going on? Where's Jerrie? She's still in Idaho working with local law enforcement.
We confirmed multiple sightings of Scarlet, and the hope is she's still there.
Did you hear that she called Cassie? Yeah.
Why do you think I rushed back? Aww, you're worried about her.
- How sweet.
- More like smart.
Scarlet's a sociopath.
Still sweet.
So you really think that Scarlet would go after Cassie? I don't know.
But if she does come back here, she might have company.
When Jerrie and I were confirming those sightings, we learned someone else had come looking for Scarlet.
Oh, you think it was someone from the Syndicate.
- I think it's a possibility.
- Just like you think the Syndicate may have taken out Wolf.
Crazy? Not at all.
I was looking for some things when you were gone.
Julian McGill.
Who is he? EMT that worked on Wolf when he died.
According to the hospital paperwork.
Did you call him to confirm that? See, that's where this gets interesting.
Julian there isn't answering his phone, and apparently he hasn't been showing up to work lately.
- Now, that is interesting.
- Mm-hmm, maybe you and Cassie should run by his place and check things out.
Kiss her first, though.
- Hey.
- Hey.
I was on my way to the office.
I figured I'd stop by, see how you were doing.
Uh, not good.
Travis? Ghosted me.
- Hey, you talk to Tubb? - Not today.
Why? I ran into his replacement earlier.
What? Yeah, Beau something.
Tubb did say he was gonna bring someone to help, but that was fast.
Yeah, good luck.
He seems, um Temporary? No, I wouldn't say that.
He's just very Texas or Houston one of those kinds.
So, wait, where did you meet him? I was on my way to this grief counseling meeting I started going to.
He said he was there for that, but Hmm.
Maybe he can help me with Travis.
You still think he's planning on killing Veer? - I didn't say that.
- Jenny, come on.
We both know that's what he wants.
Maybe, but Ren know's he's a cop, and I've been to his handler at State and he's dead weight as far as they're concerned.
I have to do something.
Arrest Veer.
Take away his target.
Thank you.
That's why I love you.
What was that? I wanted to see if maybe, just maybe, you'd be a father for once.
Get in the car and stop this nonsense.
I love you, Daddy.
All right.
Listen, I'm here because Sheriff Tubb asked me to step in.
Now, I am new here, okay? Six months in Montana, Texas before that.
And what I don't know about how things work here in Big Sky Country, well, I'll just fake it until I make it.
Now, you are all free to check my bonafides.
I will admit there are some things in there that I'm not exactly proud of, but I am here to help.
Okay? Get things moving in the right direction.
And as John Prine says, "Catch a few fish.
" Sir.
- Call me Beau, yeah.
- Right, Beau.
- Deputy - Poppernak, three P's, sir.
Um, yeah, my brother, he's got, uh, two miles of pristine trout stream going right through his property and it would be an honor to take you and hook you up.
Not a joke.
Are you sucking up? Sounds to me like you're sucking up.
Let me tell you something I like it.
100% approve, okay? 'Course I trust you know there's a line there, too.
Well, you must be Miss Hoyt.
And you must be the new temporary sheriff.
Yeah, I was just giving a little bit of an orientation type thing.
I guess you didn't get the memo I'd be addressing the troops.
So what did I miss? Well, uh, Deputy Poppa Poppa Smurf Pop - Poppernak.
- Yeah, Poppernak over here was just telling me about a sweet fishing honey hole.
He was sucking up.
It worked.
I like him.
Team Hoyt.
Team Hoyt.
Anyway, would you like me to start from the top? I would like a word.
In private.
How you wanna do this, darlin'? Darling? Gotta be kidding me.
Come on.
I didn't mean nothing by it.
I mean, is is it all nicknames that you take offense to, or just "darling"? 'Cause I gotta be honest, where I come from Texas everybody has a nickname.
Mine's BT, actually.
You can call me Hoyt.
Okay, Hoyt.
Listen, I'm just trying to put everybody at ease, okay? Get to know my team.
Tubb called, I answered.
Here I am.
He also said you might be a little red-assed that you're not put in charge, which And I gotta say I double copy you on that.
Wow, you're a real chatty one, aren't you? Not what I expected.
Shoot, you should meet my brother.
He likes to "chop it up," as the kids say.
Wow, you're doing it again.
Okay, you go right ahead.
I need your help.
With the Bhullars.
Tubb filled me in on them too.
So you know about Travis.
A little bit.
Let me tell you something.
I have tangled more than a few times with cartel elements in Texas.
It is nasty business.
So if this boyfriend of yours I think Travis is gonna kill Veer Bhullar.
And I need to stop it.
You mean "we.
" We.
You, me, Deputy, uh, Popcorn.
The team.
So you're not gonna stop me? Hell no.
You called a play.
I'm backing that play.
Let's go find him.
- Coming? - Okay.
So this is about my daughter.
What did she put in your head? Nothing.
This is about Kate Garza.
I see.
- You knew her? - Shut up.
Name your price, Mr.
Just My name's not Stone.
And I don't want your money.
What I want is to go have a little talk somewhere.
What are you thinking? Well, that, if something happened to him, he's probably not gonna answer the door.
We could pick the lock.
We could.
Yeah, or you could.
I I can't pick locks.
Bad at picking locks? Mm, terrible at it.
That might change some things for me.
Or we could go around back, see if there's any sign of forced entry.
You never know.
He might have found the love of his life and went off and got married in Vegas.
Is that what you would do? No.
But it happens.
- Cassie.
- Yeah, I see it.
This the work of the Syndicate? Yeah, it has to be.
I want the bunny with the brown spots.
Yeah, well, you can't have that and a dog.
Come on, come on.
That's the man that made me drop my milkshake.
It sure is.
Come on.
Come on, Phoebe.
Nice and quiet.
Hey! Go! Go, go, go, go! Okay.
In here.
Stay here.
Ahhhh! Ahhhh! You shouldn't have followed us! You'll never be safe.
There are so many more of me.
Phoebe, it's okay.
The bad man can't hurt us now.
I'm scared! I don't want to do this anymore.
You gonna tell me what's going on? Stone or Travis, whatever you wanna call him he has my father.
- They on a hike? - I don't know what they're doing, but it solves a problem for us.
He's a cop.
We have established this.
This doesn't sound like a good plan.
Well, you don't know the whole plan.
Travis is gonna kill my father.
'Cause he did something to one of Travis's girlfriends, blah, blah.
Just don't try to talk me out of it.
I won't.
You know my thoughts on your father.
Yeah, well, he's still my father.
What then? - Stone just gets to walk? - No.
That's where you come in.
I've been waiting for this.
You just give me the word.
It's the cops.
Let me think for a second.
Okay, let them in.
Okay, and then I kill them? Mm! No, just let them in.
Hey, nice apron.
What is this? A "Barefoot Contessa" cartel? Oh.
Quite the glow-up on the partner, Jenny Hoyt.
Where is he? Why? We're here to arrest him.
We just keep doing this and you never have any evidence.
I am very flattered, but maybe we can skip it this time.
I got a shipping manifest and a testimony of a C.
detailing your drug trafficking.
Go ahead.
You need to leave.
- Oh! - Easy, easy.
Just breathe into it.
He's fine.
He's so rugged and direct.
One more time.
Where's Veer? Stone A.
Travis he has him.
Do you know what for? I think you know.
Look, either you tell us or Or what? You're gonna bring me to the station? No, no.
No, no, no, no.
We'll skip that part.
Just take you straight to jail.
Then I'll just ripen up the tank with some drunks and meth heads and let you make some real friends.
Then we'll stack the charges.
You want him? Go for it.
Wait, you're you're just gonna give up your father? Why not? He'd do the same to me.
This is their location.
Kill me and toss me down there like an animal.
This country.
You're gonna tell me what you did with Kate Garza.
Phoebe? Phoebe where's your mom? I need you to tell me where she is.
This is Cassie.
You were right.
Phoebe deserves more out of this life.
Scarlet, how did you get in here? Doesn't matter.
We're capable of anything when it comes to our kids, aren't we? I need you to understand that I would have done anything for my daughter.
That part was always true.
I understand that.
I have family an aunt in Petoskey, Michigan.
Her number is in Phoebe's iPad.
I'm asking you, mother to mother please make sure that Phoebe ends up in the right hands.
Better hands than mine, anyway.
Scarlet, you can still do this the right way.
No, I can't.
Scarlet, wh No, I've done something for you, so please, this is all I ask.
What have you done for me? Look inside Phoebe's backpack.
Okay, so I guess this is it? Sure is.
I brought my tools.
I'm gonna cut to the chase.
I'm taking over the entire operation, and you are going to tell me everything you know as financial advisor.
All right, before we get to the choppy and stabby part, can I just make one last pitch? - Go for it.
- Well, it's not a pitch exactly.
Just something I think you might want to read.
I think you'll see that I am much more than just a financial advisor.
Veer gave me power of attorney where the business is concerned.
How the hell did you do this? Just so you know, they're real.
'Cause I told him they were insurance papers for Jag.
And did he read them? No, of course not.
He's very impatient.
And FYI I filed them already in triplicate.
And I have a few contingencies accounting contingencies you know, just in case I were to end up dead.
What do you want? Buy me out or we partner up.
Yeah, I don't think working together is a great idea.
Option "A.
" See? I told you us girls could work this out.
- We're gonna be too late.
- No, we're not.
I should have done something sooner.
Hey, hey, come on, now.
Is this the part where you beat yourself up? 'Cause let's skip that.
All right? Some people you just can't save from themselves.
Trust me, I know that.
And you're gonna want clean thoughts going into whatever this is.
He's making stupid choices because he can't let her go.
Oh! Boy, do I know something about that.
My, uh My ex-wife.
She She married some rich tech dude who owns a ranch just south of town.
I followed her up here.
Her and my daughter.
What's this guy's name? The tech dude? Avery.
And let me guess, you're still in love with her? You're good.
But, hey, if your plan is to get me to puddle up over her, that ain't gonna happen, all right? Let's focus on the job here and make sure it don't go sideways.
We're getting close.
This is it.
That's his truck.
She deserved better, you know.
I-I don't understand.
- Kate Garza? - Don't Don't you say her name.
Don't you say it.
Oh, you.
You're the cop.
The cop that turned Kate back in Seattle.
What did you think was gonna happen? You took my girl's life in your hands.
You put her in danger.
- I did nothing but kill - No, no, no, no! She knew exactly what you were.
She was a waitress when I met her.
Living a sad, pointless life.
I opened the world up for her.
Anything that happened to Kate happened because of you.
And you you are a coward if you try and say anything otherwise.
Okay, okay.
Just Just tell me something.
What'd you do with her body? So many things.
It seems you got it wrong.
She was never yours.
You understand? She was mine.
Mine! She's still alive.
She's still alive.
Wait, what'd you say? What'd What did you just say? Kate's alive.
Where is she? Where Where is she? Never.
Where is she?! Where?! Come on! Just say it! Where is she?! You tell me! Where?! Travis! - Travis, stop! - Where?! Where?! I won't miss again.
Step away from him now.
On your knees.
He's got a pulse, but it's weak.
He hurt her, Jenny.
He hurt her.
It's over.
She's dead.
- This is over now, okay? - No.
Sh-She's alive.
He He told me.
- She's alive.
- Come on.
Help on the way? On its way.
Doctor said you got there just in time.
Another blow or two, Veer Bhullar would've been dead.
He's very lucky.
Well, that's one way to look at it.
So what's gonna happen with Travis? Is he getting charged with attempted murder? State wants him back.
Apparently, there's a whole list of offenses.
Poor son of a bitch.
I'm gonna take him to his handler.
The meeting's already set up.
You want some company? No, if that's okay.
Yeah, that's good by me.
Listen, maybe take him for a cheeseburger and a beer on your way.
You know? One last good thing.
I will.
Were you gonna shoot me today, Jenny? I don't know.
What did Veer tell you about Kate? He tortured her.
He He broke her.
So why didn't you kill him? I was gonna, but he said she's still alive.
How do you know he wasn't lying? I don't.
What are you doing? Go find her.
You want me to find Kate? What's the catch? After you find her, you will turn yourself in.
Go on.
Thank you, Jenny.
Just go before I change my mind.
What's on it? According to Scarlet, information on the Syndicate.
- You take a peek? - Not yet.
Computer's at the office.
And I need to watch her.
She have any family? Yeah, an aunt in Michigan.
Social Services will have to get involved, but her aunt said that she'll look after her.
She jumped on a plane right away.
She'll be here soon.
Considering everything she's been through, she's actually doing pretty okay.
Would you like my cookie? My mom always told me to share.
No, thanks, sweetie.
Would you? Maybe just a tiny bite? - Okay.
- Okay.
You're funny.
Don't tell him that he's funny.
He's not nearly as funny as he thinks he is.
So we'll check in on her all the time.
I made a promise to Scarlet.
Is that weird? Not at all.
My son.
Come on.
So, you're off? I am.
Where are you going? London for now.
I've always loved the rain and English gardens in the spring time.
Sounds nice.
Never been there.
You want to come with me? I'm good right here, where I was born and raised.
Careful you don't die here.
I'll watch out for that.
You know, you remind me of me.
I guess.
I'd tell you to watch your back with Ren, but you already know that.
It's been nice getting to know you.
Oh! I forgot.
Tell Ren I didn't say goodbye.
Seriously? You can walk.
Milk it.
Go ahead.
Don't say it.
No, I, uh I want to.
I love you.
Let's go.
Okay, let's see what we got here.
Uh, account numbers and it looks like maps - or routes of some kind.
- Any names? Not that I can see.
Yeah, guys, this is all encrypted.
Feds have experts that can pretty much unlock anything.
I should send this to Marshal headquarters so they can process it.
See? Told you he was a keeper.
Ooh, girl.
Long day? Oh, and then some.
What's going on? Well, Scarlet gave Cassie a hard drive with some information on the Syndicate on it.
Um, anything we could use? How 'bout I fill you in over a beer? I'm sure we have a lot to catch up on.
Uh, I'll just stay here with Denise and, uh, let you two have some girl time.
Girl time? Uh, just go be with your friend? I don't know.
Denise, you're right.
He's a keeper.
Girl time.
I rolled into town ♪ And I laid my money down ♪ On a game that was made to lose ♪ Everything I had ♪ I could carry on my back ♪ I don't want nothing I can't use ♪ I mean If you told me this morning we'd be knocking back beers tonight, I'd be genuinely surprised.
You know, I thought that I was gonna be tailing Scarlet through Idaho.
- And I'm just glad it's over.
- Mm.
Sure you're okay? All that matters is that we're here.
Yes, our favorite place with the pool table.
- Yes.
- We have the juke-box.
Oh, don't forget the tacky light fixtures.
Could never forget those.
- Dewell and Hoyt.
- Dewell and Hoyt.
Of all the bars in town, I had to pick this one and crash your little party.
If you don't mind.
First, back it up and come correct.
- Th - Yep, back it up.
- Start over.
Back it up.
- All right.
Tequila? Ooh! - Hey! There you go! - Hey! Okay.
All right.
Three tequilas.
My friend.
Tres blancos, por favor.
All right.
So how'd it go? You know, it went.
Sort of like Travis.
Yeah, um, about that.
Hell, I figured you'd do something like that.
So are you gonna do anything about it? I don't know what you're talking about.
And if they come asking questions, I got your back.
It'll give those State desk jockeys something to do.
- Thank you.
- Yeah.
- Oh! Here we go, here we go.
- Ahh.
Thank you.
Welcome to Montana.
I'll drink to that.
