Sonny's next stop is the hardware store, where he buys another saw and some plywood, which he orders cut to the weirded-out clerk's height. While the clerk sees to that, Sonny has another flashback. He's just finished another one of his workouts when Tiller arrives with a big tray of food. There's a slab of beef the size of a man's ass cheek. "You wanna move up the food chain, you need a lion's share," Tiller explains. Tiller compliments "the fire in [Sonny's] belly." They have not only forged his new abs of steel, but really motivated him to change. Tiller taunts him about Helen, then passes on this gem: "A chicken can do as many push-ups as it wants; the fox is still gonna eat it." But then the fox will be, like, "Damn, that was some stringy chicken!" He also taunts Sonny about not going through with killing that guy in the yard.
Sonny looks at Tiller like he's crazy, but later, when he's alone, he puts out a burning cigarette in his own arm. You might think he's doing it to inure himself to pain, but it's actually just how people used to make nicotine patches.
Present. The team blahs back and forth about Sonny having Danielle. They don't know where he's taken her. Rebecca asks Hauser if Sonny has contacted Helen yet about Danielle. Hauser says he hasn't, and Rebecca thinks that means Sonny hasn't hurt her yet, even though we just established a couple of scenes ago that he killed Pierce long before he called Helen. Gah! Somehow, they track down the hardware store where Sonny bought his first saw. They head over there and figure out from the weirded-out clerk that Sonny is building a coffin. They think he must have buried Danielle in the same field where he'd once buried his ransom money.
Danville. Danielle is still alive and screaming in the coffin while Sonny takes his time burying her. He takes so much time that Rebecca and Doc drive up in time to see him leaving. Rebecca makes sure the cops know where to start looking for Danielle, then drives after Sonny.
