...while Raylan saunters over to Art and asks what the hell is up with Arlo. Given what a quick draw Raylan is, I'm surprised they don't disarm him so he doesn't shoot the messenger, but Art steps up and tells Raylan that Vasquez is going to make a deal with Arlo, and Vasquez clarifies that Arlo is going to hand over Drew Thompson -- and in return, they're going to let him walk. Given the fact that Arlo killed a cop who he thought was Raylan, this news obviously slaps Raylan hard in the face so Art says into the awkward silence that Drew Thompson's testimony could nab them Theo Tonin and Vasquez adds, "And if we got a shot at Theo Tonin, we gotta take it, right?" Raylan's dark answering glower suggests that there is no "we" here and his mood certainly isn't improved by the smug look Arlo throws in his direction. Raylan then takes a deep breath and it may not be the right time, but I'm impressed that his face remains so attractive when emotions are pulling it in several different directions simultaneously. Raylan finally chokes out that the whole thing makes sense -- it's "upsetting" sure, but it makes sense! Vasquez points out that Barnes may not have been the only bad apple in the FBI's orchard, so they really do need to get to Thompson before Detroit does, but Raylan then asks how much time he has. Vasquez doesn't catch his drift, so Raylan spells it out -- he's going to look for Thompson himself, so how much time does he have before the deal is official? Vasquez tells him it'll probably be twenty-four hours before the written approval comes from Washington, which sends Raylan out the door toward Harlan.
