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.
Karen has a soak in the tub. Her phone rings, so she answers it. I'm so paranoid about electricity and water that I could never do that. I know it's irrational, but there you go. Anyway, it's Pell, calling from a pay phone, and he says that nothing sexy rhymes with "Karen." He offers up some sample lyrics, and Karen advises him to keep his day job. Pell says that she's not like other women he's met, because she sees too much, and then he asks if she's alone. Karen says she is at the moment. Pell says, "No, I mean are you really alone? Is there a Mr. Sisco?" Karen doesn't respond, so Pell says he thought not, and that it must be tough for a pretty girl like Karen, "pissing in the sandbox with boys all day long, not having anyone to handcuff at night." Pell imagines that it gets lonely. Karen asks about him, since he's always playing as a kept man for a sugar mama. Pell says that the conversation is turning messy, and promises to drop her a postcard. His time runs out, so he hangs up and walks away.
Karen and Alvin are on a plane to Wichita. Karen asks if he's okay.
Cut to Alvin's house in Wichita. Karen and Alvin walk in. I totally covet the boots Karen's wearing in this scene. Karen says she might be able to make some calls and get Alvin set up somewhere else. A door opens somewhere in the house, and Karen pushes Alvin back. She pulls her gun out of her purse and fingers the trigger, but stops when she sees that the noise was caused by Alvin's son riding his Big Wheel down the hallway. The kid is cute, but the whole Big Wheel in the house is a little too redrum for me. Alvin is delighted to see his son, and Karen smiles. Alvin's wife ["played by Sarah Clarke, a.k.a. Nina from 24 and Xander Berkeley's real-life wife" -- Wing Chun] walks into the hallway, smiles, and says they missed him. Karen watches them and smiles as a soulful version of "Que Sera Sera" starts playing.
