After sending the second shot to join the first, Wynn informs Boyd without preamble that the way the Cairn situation played out, with him ending up in the hands of the Feds, has "further alarmed" their Detroit friends. Boyd points out that Cairn is not Thompson, but Wynn duhs that it's the precedent that's the problem, and as such, Tonin wants Thompson found -- now. To that end, Tonin has sent a guy on his way to Harlan "who has apparently killed more people than malaria," and when he gets there, they need to supply him with Thompson so he can bring his scalp back to Detroit, "or he'll bring ours instead." I wonder if this means Tonin abandoned his caveat that Thompson be taken alive? He seemed pretty hell-bent on that point before, at least according to Augustine, but Wynn does go on to say that Tonin is ready "to scorch the earth down here," so maybe that explains his shift in policy.
After a pause (people should never allow Boyd to stop and think; that's when plans get hatched), Boyd says he's got it narrowed down to two names, and Wynn seems relieved even as he asks if they should tell Tonin's enforcer to flip a coin. Boyd, however, suggests they have the guy kill both targets, and Wynn shows just how much of a conscience he has by taking a deep breath at that. He's still going to agree, obvs.
Oh, here are Browning and the aforementioned smoking Deke, and Browning is making some tough talk about filling the slurry pond full of bodies and whatever, but just then, there's a knock on the door, which Deke goes to answer. Outside, there's a man in a deputy's uniform who asks to see Browning, and then Browning appears behind Deke, prompting Deke to turn and start lecturing him in a "We talked about this!" voice. And, as it happens, Browning would have been well served to follow his security guy's advice, as the "deputy," who clearly has just revealed himself as the enforcer, sadly shoots Deke dead and slides quietly in, keeping his gun leveled at Browning. Deputy Enforcer, by the way, is recognizable from many shows, but, given that he's clean-shaven and less crazy-acting here, you might not place him as crazy, nuclear Ted Sprague from Heroes. (You might not even remember that Heroes happened, but this is Season One we're talking about, at least.) And I already made my Carrie reference, but Browning's face is covered in Hot Deke's blood, and his eyes are open to almost-Spacek levels, so great job on the tough talk there, guy.
