Agents Van Alden and Sebso are called in by an out-of-jurisdiction investigator who says he's got one Billy Winslow, who they picked up for an armed robbery beat. The guy is terrified of going to jail, and almost immediately asked to talk to the Feds out of Atlantic City. When Van Alden questions him, Winslow tells them all about the hijacking in the woods last January. See, he was the guy who overturned his car and served as the decoy while Jimmy and Al fucked things up royally. Nobody was supposed to get hurt, Winslow stresses. Van Alden wants names, though Winslow wants to make sure they have a deal, Van Alden says he'll use his influence the best he can (which seems like a fine promise until you realize Van Alden would just as soon fuck this guy over and then flog himself for it later). But Winslow is eager to get this off his chest, it seems. He says the guys were Jimmy Darmody, and "this fella called Al."
Speaking of Jimmy, he's at the VA, waiting to take his evaluation. The half-faced guy walks out and asks Jimmy about the book he's reading (called "Tin Soldier"). Jimmy calls it a "bunch of malarkey." He offers Half-Face a smoke, but Half-Face, in his halting, guttural grown, says it's "not possible." Jimmy gets up and sits next to him, introducing himself. Half-Face's name is Richard Harrow. Incidentally, he's played by Jack Huston, who is not only part of the John/Walter/Anjelica Huston clan, but he's also Cat Deeley's boyfriend. Recapping worlds are colliding! Taking a closer look at Richard, we see his mask has an eyeball painted on it. It's quite the unsettling creation. Anyway, both men are set to take the test; Richard worries the questions may be embarrassing. "Just lie," Jimmy says. Harrow finds it very difficult to lie these days. "They're interested in what's in our heads so that next time we'll fight better," Harrow says. He then pulls a shield of some kind out of his satchel. Jimmy identifies it as a German sniper mask, and Harrow says he gets anxious if he doesn't have it with him at all times. Jimmy intuits that Harrow was a marksman. Harrow tells the story of waiting three days for the German who wore it to take it off. He eventually lifted it to scratch his nose, at which point Harrow put a bullet "one inch below his eye." Jimmy: "Well, fuck him, right?" Heh. Harrow goes back to fretting about the test, asking if one of the questions is "Have you ever made love to a girl?" When the nurse comes out and calls for "James Darmody," Jimmy hollers back that he left. When she calls for Harrow, Jimmy stops him and encourages him to give lying a shot. Both men pipe up to say that Harrow has left too.
