...and then he's walking into the High Note. He looks intently in one direction for a few moments, and I'm not sure if he sees his quarry at this point, but whatever the case, he pulls the fire alarm... and, like, no one leaves. Hee. However, when Raylan makes his way over to the bar, the bartender supposes that this isn't a drill, and when Raylan confirms that, the bartender leads everyone out... everyone, that is, save Adair, who's sitting against the wall with a smirk on his face. Raylan informs him that, with Adair's formal declaration a matter of public record, Raylan would be perfectly entitled to pull on him right now, and no matter how many times they cover it, I never get tired of discussions of the Marshal Code. Adair gets to his feet and starts shambling toward Raylan as Raylan recalls that when they first met, Adair didn't think Raylan would shoot him, and as Raylan displays the badge on his belt, Adair chuckles like an idiot. Raylan, playing along, puts his hand on his gun and asks whether Adair thinks he'll do it now, and after they both drop the smiles, Adair says Raylan's not going to shoot him and goes for his gun -- whereupon Raylan drops him with three quick shots followed by a fourth for good measure, killing him dead. Like I said in the recaplet, not a lot of suspense, but I feel like Raylan needed a good kill, with everything that's been happening, and you can see on his face that there was some grim personal satisfaction in this one. Jackie enters and silently observes as Raylan checks that Adair is dead and then calls it in, and I wonder if he can use the events of this day to talk Art out of making him see Arlo.
Colton enters the bar, and Johnny rightly tells him he looks like "ten pounds of shit in a five-pound bag." Colton asks for a beer, but Johnny suggests he instead give him a salute to the Iraqi war hero. Colton invites him to introduce his lips to Colton's dick, but Johnny says he's just playing around, and figured Colton could handle it -- unless he can't, which might explain why he hasn't been around lately? Colton dismissively says he's been sick, so Johnny asks him if he ever gets fever dreams, like he does. "Make me feel like I'm goin' insane." Obviously, Johnny has decided to start circling Colton; I'd guess he doesn't know exactly how he's going to play this, but he knows he's got some valuable information, and he wouldn't be worthy of the Crowder name if he didn't consider his next play carefully. Johnny asks if Colton killed a lot of people, and wonders if killing people "over there" feels any different than killing them at home. Colton wonders if he's asking about killing white people, but no -- Johnny's referring to innocents. "Civilians, kids -- you see their faces in your dreams?" Colton tries to change the subject to how warm the beer is, but Johnny gets close to showing his hand: "Do you see Ellen May's face?" After a pause, Colton evenly enough says he hasn't, and Johnny says he wouldn't, since... "she wasn't exactly innocent, was she?" Colton looks at Johnny with interest, but it's hard to say what kind. But in an episode full of people with good poker faces, he kind of stands out.
