...but it's still hilariously unexpected (well, aside from the fact that it was in the previews) when we cut to Cairn running alongside Raylan's car, handcuffed to something inside. Cairn complains that what Raylan's doing is illegal, but Raylan points out that impeding a Federal investigation is likewise a crime, so either Cairn tells him something worth hearing or they're crossing his tether line. Cairn gives in and tells Raylan that Thompson is with the hill people and I like the idea of "hill people" even a bit less than "people named after body parts," so I'm hoping Raylan's correct when he calls bullshit on this, especially since he's started driving again. Cairn, however, goes on that Waldo Truth wasn't the only one to land badly from that plane (from which Thompson threw him, according to Cairn) -- when Thompson jumped, he busted up both his legs. He got word to Bo Crowder and Arlo and they made a deal -- they'd get him a place at which to get fixed up in return for the cocaine. Raylan's still skeptical, but Cairn tells him there weren't many places they could take Thompson without him being discovered, but the thing is, his legs never healed properly and without mobility he's been stuck there all this time. Raylan finally believes, at least enough to check it out. He does warn Cairn as he unlocks the cuffs that if he comes back without Thompson, Cairn will be his first stop. Cairn, however, is too busy falling to the ground from exhaustion to register that. For now.
