He bids Owen to take him back to the farm, but McGarrigle calls Owen back for a private chat. He detests the selfish aspirations of Nucky and his American greed mongers and tells Owen he's changed. Owen assures him he hasn't, so McGarrigle tells him to stay behind to broker the peace. Owen protests, "I'm no peacemaker, sir." Truth. McGarrigle says he wants Owen close and asks, "Will you help me?" Owen says cryptically, "I'll serve as needed." Watch your back, McGarrigle!
Back in America, Manny is counting up his take for the day when a neighborhood boy knocks on the door and claims he's having an emergency. Because a real emergency can only be solved through brisket? Manny unlocks the door, only to find the boy run and a man with a shotgun emerge from around the corner. Manny takes a shot to the shoulder before trapping the gunman's arm in his door. And, in case you hadn't gleaned this already, Manny is one badass MF. He punches through the glass door, drags the gunman through, and physically battles the guy until finally overcoming him -- with a cleaver. To the head! He huffs and puffs as the would-be assassin collapses to the floor. Frankly, he looks more pissed off than anything. He glimpses at his bleeding shoulder, an inconvenience, and riffles through the stranger's pockets. On him, he finds a matchbook from Atlantic City. He tosses it back at the guy in disdain, and hits the cleaver -- in his head! Quoth the cat from Puss in Boots, "Oooooooooh!"
AC. Dunn is on the job, but really he's just waiting for the right moment to wreak havoc. He dips his toe into the water by starting back in on the crappy food they're served for lunch. It's obvious his coworkers resent how they're treated, how little they're paid, but when the buzzer goes off, they seem resigned to go back to work. One man is especially resistant. Dunn carries on complaining and prodding, decrying the absence of raises and the lack of appreciation. The holdout says they're all expendable, but bit by bit, Dunn gets the others on his side until he's ready to introduce the possibility of a strike.
