Up in their hiding place, Eric hisses, "Now?" You think, Eric? I don't know, it's a tough call. "Yeah, now!" Jake agrees and they move in. As they clear the trees, Hawkins starts yelling, "Goetz! Goetz, I wanna see your HANDS!" (SO HE CAN SHOOT THEM OFF!) "Remember we need him alive!" Jake yells at his team.
Goetz looks confuddled before commenting, "No way!" WAY! Goetz and his men pull out their guns and start firing. See? Why? Stupid. The Jerichoians drop for cover, but at least Hawkins gets a Goon before he takes cover. Goetz starts to run away with his men providing cover fire. Another Goon goes down after being hit in the chest -- wouldn't these jackholes be wearing vests? -- and Eric looks in surprise at a group scampering down a hill, also firing. "Who is that?" Eric yells. Goetz runs to hide behind a tree and keeps firing. Jericho keeps up their attack of the tree, and suddenly Goetz is out of ammo. Too bad, so sad. Hawkins yells at everyone to cease fire. Jake echoes this order. Goetz makes a rueful glare before coming out from behind his tree, his hands out to his sides. Note that he isn't actually holding them submissively over his head? "Hold your fire," Goetz says. The Jerichoians hold their fire, but they also hold their aim. Jake pulls out another gun and trots toward Goetz, the gun aimed. Goetz walks down to meet the Jerichoians. He looks down at his men, all dead, apparently.
The New Bernies also run toward Goetz. Jake finally catches sight of them and points a gun their way, yelling, "What the hell are you doing here?!" Russell yells that they came for Goetz. They've been tracking him all night, waiting for their chance to make their grab. "Thanks," Russell tosses to Jake. "No way, Russell, you can't have him!" Jake yells. Doesn't Goetz feel popular? So many people want to kill him! "Wanna bet?" Russell challenges, pointing his gun at Jake. Oh, Russell, you so don't want to go there! Jake insists that they're handing him over to Beck. "Handing him over?!" Russell boggles. Seriously, Jake should have just let Russell take Goetz. They could have just said that New Bern overpowered them and been clean of all blame. Meanwhile, Stanley's truck pulls up. Jake argues that if Goetz ends up dead, Beck will wreak havoc on both towns. "He has three killings to answer for in New Bern!" Russell exclaims. "Yeah, well he's in Jericho!" Jake yells. Ah, falling back on county lines. An oldie but goodie! By the way, hi Russell! Jake hasn't seen you in awhile -- how're things? "He's under arrest for Bonnie Richmond's murder," Jake continues. Aw, would that be Jake's first arrest? How cute! "We are fighting an army that has more guns than we do, more men than we do!" Jake yells. Meanwhile, Stanley strides up to the scrum. "What we need is resolve!" Russell says. Not to nitpick, but does he mean, "resolution"? Meanwhile, Stanley's getting closer and reaching into his pocket. "And Goetz? He's the fuel for that resolve!" Russell goes on. Oh, that sort of resolve. I still think he means something other than resolve. Meanwhile, Stanley's pulled a gun and has it against Goetz's head. "Stanley!" Emily calls, nervously. Hawkins looks over. Okay, that's not fair to Hawkins's character. Not only would Hawkins have heard the click of the gun cocking, he would have been paying attention to Stanley's arrival when his truck was a mile down the road.
