Outside the house, cops escort Herve into a car. Karen walks by, talking to Pete on the phone. She says that Pell has an American passport and a Florida driver's license under the name of Michael Lamb. She also wants Pete to get in touch with Alvin's wife. Karen hangs up and gets in her car.
Karen walks into her now empty apartment. "Blue Light" by Mazzy Star plays. Karen pulls out her bottle of bourbon. She sits down and puts her gun on the table, and then pours herself a glass of bourbon. She pulls up her shirt and checks the giant bruise on her ribs, courtesy of Herve. She leans back, heaves a sigh, and sips her bourbon.
The next morning, Karen is awakened by the ringing phone. About a quarter of the bottle of bourbon is gone. Karen picks up the phone with her feet, which is alternately kind of gross and really impressive.
Cut to Karen and Pete walking down a hallway at the police station. Pete tells Karen that she's about to meet a nurse named Sally Preston, but that she isn't talking. Pete adds that one of the other nurses saw Sally boosting insulin, and recognized the photo of Pell because she saw Sally talking to him in the parking lot. Karen is looking slightly hung-over, but still pretty damn good. Karen asks Pete and the cops to leave so that she can talk to Sally alone. Karen introduces herself, but Sally sullenly says that she didn't do anything. Karen asks where she met Pell, and adds that he's a very good liar. Sally claims that she doesn't know what Karen is talking about. Karen asks what song Pell sang to her, and offers up "Lay Down Sally" or "Mustang Sally." Sally's head turns toward Karen sharply.
Cut to a team of Marshals, including Pete and Karen, busting into a motel room. Pete says that Pell isn't there, and orders the team to turn the place upside down. They toss drawers and open doors. Karen finds a vial of insulin under the bed and snags it with a gloved hand. She tells someone to get in touch with a judge so that they can get a court order for the phone records. Outside, Karen asks Pete to get her a copy of the song "Chelsea Hotel #2." Pete says he will. Is Pete just Karen's whipping boy or what? Karen passes Burden and his team, who are on their way in. Burden says he's not happy. Karen asks, "Why is that? Because I'm here, or because I'm here first?" Ooh, he'd better change his name to Burnden, because he just got burned!
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.
