Danny says they sent Joe out there without all the brains or backup that he has at his disposal with this family.
Frank gets a call, he has confirmed that the body in the car wasn’t Joe – everybody is relieved. Frank says at least there is reason to think they might hear from him.

Erin has an idea, what if she gets a warrant to search Max’s apartment. Danny asks her if she has any reason to think his girlfriend is connected to his criminal activities because if she doesn’t they don’t have probable cause and she has a right to her privacy.
Joe and Ty are in a motel room when Evans rushes the door with a gun aimed at them, he says he is a friend of Kenny and he had a hunch, he thinks they are both cops and tells them to throw down their guns. All of a sudden, Joe has a backup gun, he pulls it out and shoots Evans in the leg, twice and he says cops have backup guns. Ty is shocked, he turns to Joe and says you’re a cop, Joe says yes, and I just saved your life.
Sid and Abigail go in to see Frank and she tells him that he has to eat. He says he appreciates it but he has no appetite, it is just one of those times, nothing to do but wait and he is kind of superstitious about it.
Erin tells Anthony that if the judge declines the request for the warrant they are in trouble.
Ty is in the car with Joe, he is furious that joe is a cop. He pulls over and takes a walk. Joe gets out and says he can work with him, or he can spend the rest of his life living his life like Evans. Joe shoots the ground repeatedly, he wants information from Ty.
Jamie and Danny track another gas station, joe held up a map to the surveillance camera. Kenny Cook and his men arrive there, Danny puts something in their tanks, and their engines cease.
Webber agrees to work with Frank and his department, he tells her that he is communicating through the surveillance. Danny and Jamie call Frank.
Anthony and Erin are outside Max’s apartment, Anthony says he is going in without a warrant, she just needs to watch his girlfriend as she leaves the apartment.
Henry and Frank are eating leftover pizza, Henry tells him the secret is putting the slice in a pan with a bit of oil. Erin arrives, she tells them they searched Max’s apartment. Frank tells her to please say she got a warrant, she says she got a warrant, from the ghost of their brother Joe.
Danny tells Jamie that maybe Joe has the same blind spot as their brother had, thinks he can see the line between fearless and reckless. They arrive at another gas station, they both go in this time to look at the security footage, and there near them, is Joe who says he is sorry about all the hide and seek. Joe says he knows they are there to take him in, but he needs about twelve more hours. He is only asking them for the same thing they would ask for. Joe says he is driving a black Camero with Connecticut plates, if he loses them he will wait at the next mile marker – he tells them if they need gas, to fill up now.
In Frank’s office, Webber says there is a sentencing hearing that afternoon for a guy facing forty years for a drug trafficking charge, but she can’t connect them to anyone in the Moonshine crew. She has agents concentrating in the area. Webber gets a call, she says her team is flying to Portsmith and her director has asked if Frank wants to join them, he declines the offer.
Ty arrives at Abraham Hills Farm, they find a pickup full of guns, Ty says they were going to take down a federal courthouse. They all grab guns when they see other picks arrive, it is Kenny’s men – shots are fired. Joe runs to the other side, they cover him and he is ok. The shots are coming from all sides. There is one guy on the roof, Danny gets him. Kenny pulls up. Ty is shot and so is Joe. They hear sirens, Kenny leaves. Ty is dead, he got two shots to the chest. Joe seems ok.
At the Reagan house, Frank tells Joe to look under his plate, there is the charm of St. Jude that belonged to his father.
