In the basement, we get a shot of what I guess is a busted lock, and Jake asks Jimmy if he did that. "Uh, yeah," Jimmy admits rather shamefacedly. When did he do it? Just now? Back when he and Gray first combed through the house? Or are we supposed to glean from the busted lock and the fact that Jimmy said he had a hunch and was right that Jimmy was here just before he brought Jake? So confusing. Inside Hawkins's secret office, Jimmy spreads his arm wide to Jake, who takes in the pin-speckled map of the United States, the desk, and the cup of pencils on the desk and admits, "All right, this is kinda weird, but he's FBI -- isn't this what his basement would look like?" You tell us, Jake. You tell us! Jimmy says that he thought the same thing until he found the drawer full of IDs and passports, along with a roll of cash. Warily, Jake asks if Gray knows about this. No: Jimmy wanted to get a second opinion before he told anyone. Yeah, more like he wanted to get a Jake opinion before he told anyone. Man, between this episode and last -- not to mention all the other times Jake has saved Jericho's ass -- Jake is more mayor than even Mayor Dad is more mayor than Gray! Jimmy asks what he wants to do. Jake looks at the paper clip in his hand and says nothing.
Hawkins returns home and checks the door-jammed paper clip. It's back where it should be. Inside, there's nothing to make Hawkins suspicious until he trundles down to the basement and sees that his office door is ajar with a busted lock. He quickly looks around the shadowy basement before staring at the door. He doesn't approach it, but reaches to his holster for his gun. Before he can pull it out, another gun is loudly cocked. Hawkins whips his head around to see Jake training a gun on him. "Don't," Jake warns. Hawkins and Jake stare each other down before Jake's question, "Who are you?" takes us to commercials and credits.
