Speaking of rising and falling fortunes, Boyd gets off the phone and heavily tells Ava and Johnny that the marshals rescued Shelby before Augustine could reach him. Ava asks how that's possible, but Boyd's at a loss and Johnny gives nothing away as Ava wonders what they do now. Boyd tonelessly replies that they can either make a case to Tonin "or we run." It takes a lot to remove Boyd's swagger, which is just as well, since I'm not sure I can handle the result. And speaking of running...
...Wynn has also just gotten the news, and he tells his security guy about it and that Augustine wants him in Harlan. The guy asks him if he's going to go, but on consideration Wynn asks his guy if he has a passport, getting this reply: "You need a passport to get into Harlan?" Okay, I was wondering about the robe and the separate beds and all, but now it makes sense: Wynn might find this guy hot enough to fuck, but he's clearly too dumb to share a bed with. Wynn is like, I'm talking about Canada, dumbass, whereupon his guy tells him he'd prefer not to run away "like a little bitch." Wynn chooses not to take offense, merely telling him that he's not sure how he'll survive without him, but he'll try to get by. He actually delivers the line pretty inscrutably, but thick as he may be, the guy still reads it as an insult, not that it's likely to matter much to the story.
Raylan sees Tim and Rachel returning and notes that they look empty-handed, and Art replies that this collar could mean a whole new life for Raylan, whereupon Raylan asks if he's still going to suspend him for Hunter. Art: "Oh, you bet your ass. But still -- enjoy this!" Heh. Tim angrily reports that Colton got away and then Art tells his team that Tonin knows they have Shelby, and he's not going to be happy. Raylan: "Meaning we just gotta figure out how to get out of Harlan alive." Well, Raylan, I think that's going to be the name of the game for everyone. See you next week.
