Alvin and Marshall sit on Marshall's boat and have a chat. Alvin talks about numbers, and how he was going over Charlie's books one night. Marshall asks if they were the cooked books, or the real ones. Alvin says they were the cooked books, and that he found himself "staring into a black hole." Alvin had a crisis of conscience. So he told Charlie that he had to leave, and Charlie said he understood. On his way home, Alvin got shot in the stomach four times. You'd think someone like Charlie would hire hit men who actually made sure that their targets were dead. Then again, we saw what happened with the friends from Detroit, so maybe Charlie's penchant for hiring inept hit men is going to be a theme. Alvin sips his beer and says he wishes they weren't sending him back tomorrow. Marshall gives him a look like, "Didn't you just tell me about how last time you were in town, you got shot in the gut four times?" And yes, Robert Forster can convey all of that with a single look.
Karen is all dressed up, and contemplating the fact that her gun is too big to fit into her purse. Man, I hate when that happens. The doorbell rings. Karen hustles out to answer it while throwing on a coat. It's the often-mentioned but heretofore-unseen Will. He's cute! He's like a mini-Clooney.
Cut to Will and Karen at a restaurant. A waiter comes over and says that they turned up the thermostat, and asks if he can take Karen's coat now. Bug off, waiter! Who asked you? Karen says that, but more nicely. Will asks if she's too cold, and Karen says she's fine. Will asks if she thinks he can't handle seeing her in that dress. Karen smirks. Will asks lightly if she just wants to go home, because she's hardly said anything. Karen admits that her gun is in her coat pocket, because it wouldn't fit in her purse. Will is surprised that she carries it with her. Does he not know what she does? He asks if she's ever shot anybody. Is he dumb? Karen hesitates and tries to change the subject by saying that the wine is really good. Will asks again, and Karen tells him to ask her another question, like how many men she's slept with or how much she weighs. Will says he really wants to know how many people she's shot. Karen says it was three. Will is taken aback, but he goes ahead and asks if she's ever killed anybody. Does he really want to know that right now? Karen says she's killed two people. Will says, "You've shot and killed two people." Karen says she shot one, and the other was "more of a hand-to-hand-type situation." Will can't believe that she killed a man with her bare hands. Karen says that there was a knife involved. Will takes a big gulp of his wine. Karen softly asks him to kiss her. He does and she says, "See? I'm just a girl." That line would be a lot more effective if not for the unfortunate Notting Hill resemblance. Karen's phone rings. It's Pete, of course. He says he just talked to Alvin's wife, and that Karen isn't going to like what he found out.
