Alvin stands up and starts walking upstairs. He stops to light a cigarette, and suddenly the windows to the balcony are shattered by gunfire. Alvin dives to the floor, and Karen rolls over and hides behind the couch. The gunfire continues for a while. Karen grabs her coat and pulls her gun out of the pocket. Marshall comes down the stairs, gun in hand, and asks if Karen's okay. Karen orders Alvin to go upstairs and get under the bed. Alvin scrambles his way up there. Marshall runs over and joins Karen behind the couch. Is the couch bulletproof? It doesn't seem that safe. Karen tells Marshall to go outside and try to circle around behind the shooters. Marshall has other plans, but Karen firmly tells him not to argue. Marshall takes off. Outside, a goon stops to put a new clip in his gun. Marshall walks up behind the goon, holds a gun to his head, and says, "Your choice." The goon drops his weapon. Marshall asks how many there are. The goon says that there are two. Marshall hits the goon over the head with the butt of his gun and says, "Platehead."
Karen, still hiding behind the couch, hears noises from upstairs and softly says, "Alvin."
Cut to Alvin hiding under the bed. Nearby, a window is opened and a goon steps into the room. He slowly approaches the bed. He starts to kneel down. He sees Alvin and points a gun at his head. A gunshot rings out. The goon drops dead. Cut to Karen standing in the doorway, gun smoking. Okay, it wasn't smoking, but in my imagination it was. Marshall runs up and asks if she's okay. She breathes, "Yeah." Marshall sternly says, "I'm not very happy with you, Alvin."
Amos arrives at the house. Marshall greets him. Karen watches as Alvin gets into the back seat of a cop car before it pulls away. Amos asks Karen if she's okay. Karen says she's okay, and asks what's up with Pell. Amos says, "What Dan Burden lacks as a lawman, he more than makes up for as a politician." He explains that after Karen busted into the motel room, Burden called the director, who called the Attorney General, who called Amos. Karen asks for one more day, but Amos says that his hands are tied, and that Karen will be escorting Alvin back to Wichita first thing in the morning.
