Skylar hobbles over to check on Harry. Mrs. Carmichael loses her shit all over Skylar and sneers that Skylar only cares about herself and her boyfriend and the rest of them can go to hell, adding, "Wouldn't your father be proud?" Skylar doesn't know what that's supposed to mean, but Mom arrives to guide her away, explaining, "She's nervous." That may be, but thank God someone finally told the Salt Princess what everyone thinks of her and her dead-eyed Hobbit. Mary and Emily dart in and ask how they can help. Mary hands over the antiseptic she's been working on, which Mom takes with a brief "thanks" and bangs on a counter far too close to a lantern for my comfort. Mom sends Emily off to learn how to do charts and then looks at Mary, who stupidly asks, "What is this going to mean for Eric?" Barwench, this is NOT the time. Mom doesn't know and tries to charge away, but Mary nips at her heels, yelping, "Haven't you heard anything?" See, this is infuriating for a few reasons. One, look around you at all the blood. Two, look at all the bullet wounds. Three, look around you at ALL the BLOOD! Asking about Eric and worrying his nurse-mother, distracting her from, oh I don't know, STAUNCHING all that blood, is really not cool. Mom says -- more calmly than I was expecting -- that Mayor Dad is working on it, but what she could use is a roll of bandages and some gauze. FOR THE BLOOD! "They're on the cart next to the ultrasound," Mom gestures. "Okay, I just don't know what that looks like," Mary says nervously, flinging out her hands. Mom sighs, rolls her eyes, and charges off to do it herself. Mary looks at Emily who shrugs. Because she's a helpful teacher.
In Gray's office, Gray and Russell yell at each other about whose fault all this is. Mayor Dad arrives to say that a New Bernie just died: "Dawson. I didn't get the first name." "Creek"? Sorry. Reflex. "Jim Dawson," Russell says sadly and quietly, before going back to arguing with Gray about telling New Bern that Jericho supports the salt deal. Gray isn't having it, and he doesn't support it. Russell finally snaps that they have to work together while they still can. This gets both Gray and Dad's attention. Russell wearily elaborates that things are bad in New Bern, and it's not going to go over well when six of them went out and only five come back. Dad asks what Russell is saying. He's saying get your ass in gear, Dad! "You've got people there," Russell says. "You better bring them back." Turns out Dad didn't even know that Jake went back to New Bern to find Eric. He also didn't know that Eric hadn't been seen around New Bern for several days. Dad announces that they're going, but Gray refuses to authorize it. Seriously, Gray? Dad doesn't care what Gray says; Constantino wants a fight and Dad's not going to have his sons used as human shields. He opens the door and barks, "Let's go!" Russell leaves with him.
