Kurt Bunker is also revealed to be carrying on an affair with Calvin's wife.

In the present, Proctor sets up a line of business with the Colombian cartel, and shuts down an illicit porn operation Calvin Bunker ran without his knowledge.

Proctor picks up a young girl who reminds him of Rebecca, only to be infuriated by his memories of Rebecca's disloyalty to him and attack the girl. Rebecca's parents demand her body be given to them for burial, and Proctor pushes for the autopsy to be hastened. It is revealed that she was pregnant with Hood's child.

Randall Watts, Calvin Bunker's father in law and the real boss of the white supremacists, is released from jail and takes over again, despite Calvin's misgivings. Job moves in with Carrie.

With the Cartel now involved with Proctor, Watts demands a "piece" of the drugs business; Proctor assures him that they can come to an arrangement. Hood returns to Siobhan Kelly's old mobile home to live. Hood visits Job at Carrie's new home, and they have a heart to heart talk. Job informs Hood of Carrie's vendetta against the criminals.

Upon arrival at Proctor's house and finding no one home, Hood and Dawson find a hidden basement in his toolshed, where they find bloodstained instruments of torture. Hood also finds Rebecca's necklace, and concludes that Proctor must have killed her. He does not reveal this to Dawson, and leaves without her.
