Boyd, not having a kindly escort to show him around, is propping up a wall, and Boyd, I know you were pretty reluctant on the hand jobs issue but I don't doubt it'd be a way to curry some favor. Just then, however, two men start a conversation with him; one of them is played by Ned Bellamy, who's a Tarantino favorite and has a list of credits a mile long but will always to me be Eddie the fatigues-wearing Jewish single on Seinfeld. The other is Sam Anderson, who has no fewer credits but you're most likely to know as Bernard, Rose's husband, from Lost, or the role with which I will always associate him, Holland Manners from Angel. They make a little small talk before introducing themselves as "Gerald Johns" (Bellamy) and "Lee Paxton" (Anderson), and after they make it clear they already know who Boyd is, they graciously invite him over to join their little conversational group. Boyd seems only too happy to oblige, although if I were him, I'd wonder if this is where the sex starts.
After we get a quick shot of some guy in a business suit who's as nondescript as he is tipsy, we rejoin Boyd and his new friends, and Anderson tells Boyd that funeral homes have been in his family for five generations, but he only moved back to Harlan in 1980 after his aunt passed away. Boyd replies that there's a family that moved to Slope Creek during JFK's presidency who are still referred to as "the new neighbors," and his new friends laugh appreciatively like spiders listening to a fly do stand-up. Elsewhere, Ava gives her buddy a big smile before letting him know it's not happening by asking him to excuse her, and then back to Johns, who we learn won his very successful car dealership in a poker game. At this point, a bald guy who has been giving this group dark looks stumbles over and brings up the fact that, referring to Boyd, "that lowlander screwed Black Pike Coal in a deal with Mags Bennett," and that reminds me that I really need to rewatch Season Two again, as about the only thing I remember other than Mags Bennett's general awesomeness is that the poison was in the glass. Frank tells them all he's not going to participate before inviting them all to visit Hell at their earliest convenience and when he's gone, Boyd figures that a game is afoot (I already told you how much I love that reference, even if it's not so punny this time) and that he's a player. No one responds, but the side-eye Johns gives Anderson suggests Boyd's on to something.
