Dembe knocks on Elizabeth’s door to drop off Tom’s things. He asks her how she broke into the evidence room and stole the bloody rag connecting her to the murder of Navarro. She dismisses him, denies it and reminds him he is talking to a federal agent.

A news channel interviews three teens who have found a dead body in a location known as the field of the walking dead. Red is watching the reports. He knows all about the disappearance of Tim, he is a famous gun maker that makes guns cheaper than the cost of an iPhone. He also knows all about a vigilante group known as The Invisible Hand.

Red brings Anthony to see Big Willie in the back of a candy store that also makes drugs. Red tells him Anthony has money for him but accidentally got involved and didn’t mean to.
