Plot[edit | edit source]
"What story is that, Charlie?"
The Mitchum brothers and their assistants take Cooper to Bushnell Mullins' office, celebrating and bearing gifts for Mullins. Anthony Sinclair hides from the brothers as he fearfully calls Duncan Todd, who gives him one day to kill "Jones."
Cooper's doppelganger arrives at the farm as Ray and his associates watch him on security camera. They bring him to their location and he says he is there to see Ray. He is told that Renzo is the leader of the men, as he is undefeated in arm-wrestling. The doppelganger likens this practice to children's games and challenges Renzo, wagering Ray. After much toying with his opponent, the doppelganger wins, then kills him with a brutal punch to the face.
As the group' new leader, he is granted his request to be alone with Ray who – after being shot in the leg – tells him the details of his contract from Phillip Jeffries to kill the doppelganger. He reveals Jeffries sent him after the doppelganger as he has "something inside" that he wants. Ray takes out the green ring, saying that he was supposed to put it on him after killing him. Ray says a mysterious prison guard gave it to him before he was released; he is instructed to put it on. Meanwhile, Richard Horne joins the group as they watch Ray hand over the coordinates. Ray shares Jeffries' last known location — a supposed non-existent place called “The Dutchman’s”— then the doppelgänger kills him. The ring disappears from his finger and appears in the red room, followed by himself. Mike places the ring on its pedestal.
The Detectives Fusco look over the results of "Douglas Jones"' fingerprint as an altercation takes place in the next room. The report confirms Dougie is a former FBI agent and just recently escaped from a South Dakota prison. They find this laughable, and discard the info. Meanwhile, Sinclair comes to see the two detectives he's been committing fraud with looking for poison.
Janey-E takes Cooper to work in the new car. Sinclair waits nervously for "Dougie" and takes him to get coffee. After taking a sip, Cooper wanders over to observe the shop's pie as Sinclair laces his coffee. He returns and touches dandruff on Sinclair's jacket. Sinclair breaks down, leaving with the poisoned coffee. Cooper takes Sinclair's coffee and is brought a slice of pie. Sinclair pours the coffee into a urinal and throws the cup in the trash before apologizing to "Dougie."
In Mullins' office, Sinclair tearfully confesses his activities with Todd and thanks Dougie for showing him the right path.
Bobby goes to the diner and visits with Ed and Norma. He describes to them that he came across some belongings of his father. Walter Lawford soon shows up causing Ed and Bobby move to another booth. Walter reports on the franchise progress of the diner, saying that she is selling her pies too cheap, though she disagrees with the franchise stores' practices compared to the flagship store. He suggests the name of the diner be changed to Norma's Double R, which she does not approve of. They agree to go out to celebrate the rest of success, which goes noticed by Ed.
At Run Silent, Run Drapes, Nadine is visited by Jacoby after he spotted one of his shovels in the window. He expresses his admiration for the decoration and she praises him and his show. They reflect on their last meeting at a supermarket during a storm.
A drunk Sarah watches an old boxing match repeat itself over and over.
A near-hysterical Audrey demands Charlie to tell him what Tina had told him. He instead offers to go to the Roadhouse with her to look for Billy. An indecisive Audrey breaks down, and Charlie asks if he needs to end her story. Audrey asks “What story is that, Charlie? Is that the story of the little girl who lived down the lane?”
Ed sits alone at Big Ed's Gas Farm.

Production errors[edit | edit source]
