Wynn, surrounded by his own people, trades a few words with Boyd in his usual smooth-as-silk manner; when Boyd points to Danny and says he's the reason for the summons, Wynn expectedly denies any knowledge of Danny until Boyd shows him fairly irrefutable proof -- in case you're wondering, he sent people to buy some Dixie Mafia heroin and compared it with the stuff Danny was selling -- at which point Wynn says he's sorry; he has many men working for him, but he'll make sure that such a transgression into Boyd's territory doesn't happen again. Boyd, however, sees an opportunity to solve the financial woes of his organization, and as such lobbies to be Wynn's horse distributor in Harlan for a fifty-fifty split, and I'm not sure if Boyd knows that Wynn tried to toss him in as collateral damage in his attempt to kill Quarles, but either way, this is more than a bit of a surprise.
Wynn sees it my way, saying that even if he were looking for a partner, which he's not, it would have to be someone he could trust. Boyd assures him he can trust him, getting this reply: "But I don't even trust the way you just now said I can trust you." How have I done without Wynn lo these many months? Boyd plays what he thinks is his trump card -- that Danny won't be leaving the room alive should Wynn fail to reconsider -- and Boyd, you disappoint me in apparently not having seen enough great TV and movie criminals to know what's going to happen next. Wynn, however, of course does not disappoint as, quick as a flash, he pulls out his gun and shoots Danny dead.
Of course, everyone else gets his gun out, but Wynn awesomely pulls out a white handkerchief, which he uses to wipe the piece off as he informs Boyd that any dealer dumb enough to poach his territory is no dealer of his. He apologizes for the mess, but Boyd, admirably trying to recover from the atypical schooling he just received, assures Wynn they'll take care of the cleanup duty and asks that he look at it as "a first step in the trust direction." Wynn smiles that that's awfully Christian of him, and I wonder if he knows just how deeply hilarious that is, and then turns to go, but halts as he decides to ask, "since we're being so chummy," why Arlo murdered their Dixie Mafia guy in the pen? Ooh, this is the kind of development the show uses so well -- alliances are almost always built on shifting sands in Harlan, and the price of a business deal with Wynn may be for Boyd to get information out of Arlo. This, of course, is the first Boyd's heard of it, and quick looks at Johnny and Ava yield nothing as well, so Boyd's forced to confess he doesn't know. Wynn suggests maybe Boyd should have a talk with Arlo, so Wynn leaves us with the knowledge that it's not just the Marshal Service that's been pulled into the Waldo mystery, but Boyd's crew and the Dixie Mafia as well. Not bad for two episodes' work.
