The Byrde family is heading out. Charlotte thinks it’s a bad idea but they are going anyway. Mason is going to have mass and then get lunch with his wife. He asks Ash if he’s even a believer. Ash tells him that he likes to hear him talk. Marty and Charlotte and the kids pay their respect to Ruth and the boys.
Mason has a breakdown on the water. He can’t keep preaching. He wants to talk to Jacob. Ash tries to get him to keep going but it’s no use. He sets up a meeting between Mason and Jacob. Rachel goes into a cabin and snoops around. Jacob and Mason meet. They are both men of principle so he’s free, it would seem.
Marty is setting up the trampoline in the backyard when his phone rings. It’s Jacob. He tells him that Mason has to face the consequences of his actions. Mason gets home and looks for Grace. He finds a baby. Marty and Wendy talk. They don’t want to take any chances. Wendy will flee with the kids.
She tells them to pack a small bag with essentials. They both are difficult about it but do it. Marty goes to see Jacob. He makes an offer. He’ll be the sole customer and launder what Bobby Dean used to.
Jonah runs into the woods. Wendy and Charlotte are ready to go. Charlotte asks about Marty when Jonah walks in with a gun. He tells them to move. The hitman is in the house. He tries to talk Jonah down but he pulls the trigger. The gun isn’t loaded. Hitman pounces on him but Buddy intervenes. Wendy and the kids flee as gunshots ring out.
The sheriff pays a visit to Jacob and Darlene. It seems Mason went to the authorities about the baby and the drug running. Jacob and the sheriff have a talk before the sheriff leaves. Marty comes home and finds the hitman’s body. Buddy is still there. He says the plan is to wait till dark. They do. They take the body to the funeral home that Marty owns. The hitman’s phone rings. They burn the body.
The next morning, Marty calls Wendy. Change of plans. He tells her where to meet him. Rachel is making the rounds at the Blue Cat. She comes across Petty sitting on the dock. He asks about the accident and then about Marty. She ducks out. Marty is at the library looking at old maps. He’s learning about how much property Jacob actually owns.
Rachel goes into the cabin and finds the money. She loads it all in a laundry bag and takes it back to the office. On her way through the bar though she finds Del. He’s looking for Marty. She’s nervous but plays it off. He leaves. Petty, still near the docks, sees him and follows. He manages to get a license plate number.
He goes back to his room and talks to Evans. Del is clean. Petty wants to get Marty for leverage. They argue. Wyatt is burning all his dad’s stuff. Ruth stops him and tells him that he’s going to want it someday. He tells her to mind her business. Rachel loads the cash and some luggage into the back of her car and drives off.
Wendy and the kids get to the meeting spot. No sign of Marty. His PI is there though. He’s got new identities for them. The kids start asking about their father. He tells them he was only hired to create three identities.
Marty gets back to the house and sees an SUV. Buddy is lurking. Marty tells him to take a walk and goes to face Del. Del asks about the hitman. Ruth gets a call from her father about Russ and Boyd and Marty. He’s done with her. She goes inside and Wyatt asks about the call. They talk about what happened and then she tells him that she is going to file to be their legal guardian so they don’t get split up.
Del and his goon want to know where the hitman is. They start plucking Marty’s toenails. Marty says he has a plan. Del believes it. Evans goes to talk to the sheriff. They want to find Del. They run his plates and actually get a hit. He’s headed to Jacob’s house.
Sure enough, Marty is introducing Del to Jacob and Darlene. He thinks that Del should buy heroin from Jacob. It would help both of their operations. Marty has it all figured out. Block a bit of the river to flood up some and they can open a riverboat casino. It would give both operations a lot of money and a way to launder it. Money that can be used for political capital in Jacob’s case. He’s in. Del has to make a call.
Wendy and the kids are eating. She tells them to stay put and ducks out to call Buddy. She asks about Marty and then thanks him for everything. Del comes back. They have deal. As he leaves he makes a joke about rednecks. Darlene shoots him in the head. Marty freaks out. Jacob tells him that he’s in a partnership with them now and they help their own.
He leaves and at the end of the driveway runs into Evans and the sheriff. He gets out and lays down. Evans searches the car but doesn’t find Del. He wants to take the car but the sheriff doesn’t let him. Marty is free to go. Evans goes back and tells Petty who wrecks the hotel room.
Mason is home with his son when Marty visits. They talk about kids and hope and God and the devil. Marty leaves and talks to Wendy. She wants to find a solution and he tells her they did. This is it. She asks if he wants to talk to the kids and he tells her he can’t.
She gets back in the car and fights with Charlotte about what is going on and what they are doing. Jonah chimes in that once they take their new identities, their old ones will be dead and he doesn’t want that. Mason stops on the side of the road. He hikes to the lake and dunks his son. He holds him under water for several seconds before pulling him out. He was baptizing him.
Petty is slowly piecing the glass he broke back together. Marty lays alone on the trampoline. Wyatt and Ruth are dressed up. They leave the trailer. Marty hears car doors. Wendy and the kids are back.
I feel like there are still so many unanswered questions. Rachel just took the money and bounced? When will Marty notice that? Also, what is going on with the strip club? Is that still Ruth’s income? Do these kids ever go to school? I liked this show a lot and look forward to more episodes.
