Boyd starts to say he could use a drink, and he's not the only one, but just then Raylan's voice rings out from the front. Boyd and Ava freeze for a moment, but leaving Raylan out there isn't going to accomplish anything, so they emerge. Raylan tells Boyd he honestly thought he'd "have the sense to run," but given that he didn't, he's wondering this: "Did he find Winona himself, or did you give her up?" Oh. OH. You'd like to think Boyd wouldn't do that to Raylan, but given that Boyd has been in the business of trading cash for human lives, it's hard to get too indignant on his behalf. Boyd tells Raylan they're closed and instructs Ava to go behind the bar, surely because that's where their firearms are at the moment, and Raylan in return mentions Augustine's name and suggests that Boyd is coming with him. Boyd is his usual difficult self when it comes to Raylan, so Raylan tells him he seems to be under the impression that he's merely requesting Boyd's presence. "That's my fault." Hee. Raylan threatens to take Boyd to jail if he won't cooperate, but Boyd stays flippant until Raylan oh-by-the-ways that he should probably take "her" too. OOH. Given his shared history with Ava, it wouldn't have been unreasonable to assume that she'd be off-limits, so I think we can all agree that even for him, Raylan is not fucking around.
Boyd expresses disingenuous confusion, so Raylan conversationally brings up Ellen May, saying that she's dumb but sweet, and if you get her talking, "she's just too lazy to shut up." And in weighing whether you think Ellen May would give Ava up to the law, it's worth remembering that Raylan and Ellen May had a car trip together of considerable length. Boyd can't hide his discomfort even as he calls bullshit on Raylan having anything on Ava and gets in Raylan's face as he asks if he's really going to come into his place and threaten to take his "woman" away. "You think that's the best way to get me to help you?" Raylan agrees that it isn't and apologizes. "And now that that's done, you gonna take me to [Augustine] or not?" Boyd considers for a moment before agreeing to help, "but not because I believe you got anything on either of us." It's a slightly more nuanced version of "I'll do it, but not because you told me to," and Raylan gives it the sincere answer it deserves: "Of course not. You're gonna take me because you're my buddy." Heh. Raylan also does not allow Boyd to have a private word with Ava, so, as Raylan disarms him, Boyd tells Ava he sure is sorry he's going to miss "that dinner," and Ava, in a hilariously sour tone, agrees that it won't be the same without him. Raylan then shepherds Boyd out the door as Ava watches, and faced with the prospect of doing this with only Jimmy to help her, it's no wonder she looks like she's missing Johnny for the first time in a while.
