Mrs. Carmichael looks down at how Skylar is not letting go of the meat package. "Yes, he was," Mrs. Carmichael says uncomfortably. Skylar nods. Yeah, because when you extort people using ground horsemeat as an incentive, you can believe that everything they say comes from the heart. Skylar finally releases her grip on the package and sadly tells Mrs. Carmichael that it's a quarter-pound. Mrs. Carmichael looks shiftily back at Frodale and thanks Skylar. Frodale glares, probably thinking that Skylar is going to have to have that sort of residual sympathy beaten out of her.
Mary washes jars at her bar and yells "We're closed!" as her door opens. But it's Mom, who is there to return the antiseptic jar and make nice. Mary offers a fresh batch of the antiseptic, which Mom gratefully accepts. They have a slightly stilted conversation, during which we learn that Mary makes her own vodka. According to Mom, Gray has announced that if Dad isn't back from New Bern by dawn, he's going after them himself. They both agree it's going to be a long night, but Mom turns down Mary's offer to wait it out together in the bar. Still, they both promise to alert one another if they hear anything.
