And over to Fabens, Texas. Delia -- her stomach wound clearly healing nicely -- trots through the plains on her horse. She gets a call on her cell phone, but tells the caller that he's dropping in and out. "She's coming back tonight?" she yells into the phone. Frustrated by the bad reception, she promises the caller that she'll call him from a land line, then gallops off into the sunset.
Casa de Delia. Delia's mother sits hunched in a wheelchair in front of the TV. She seems to be in some later stage of dementia, poor thing. But Delia's dad looks hale and hearty as he sets plates of dinner in front of them. Delia cuts into a spear of broccoli and announces that she's going back to El Paso. Delia's dad looks disappointed. "You really want to go back to the DEA? I don't understand why you can't collect a disability pension," he says. Delia takes a bite of avocado and reminds him that she's not really disabled. "You got shot, you almost died. You've given enough to that job," her father opines. Delia doesn't even roll her eyes. "Daddy, the DEA is what I am. Not what I do," she tells him calmly. "Oh, sister, I know that song," the Scully action figure mutters under her breath. "Let it go before you find yourself being kidnapped by aliens and working with a guy who has sex with you and goes to the store for two years." Delia's father doesn't bring up this salient point, but instead just shakes his head.
Cut to...Delia, on a stakeout. She watches a car roar into the driveway of a small house. A man storms out of the car and inside. After a moment, she follows.
Delia knocks on the door of the house, and asks the dude -- let's call him Bandanna, since he's wearing one -- if Maria is home, claiming to be her cousin. Bandanna, clearly no brain surgeon, lets her in, and calls for Maria. "Where's Rafael?" Delia asks Maria as soon as she enters the room. Ah, this must be Rafael's sister, the one with the drug conviction that Delia disappeared. "She's not my cousin! She's with the DEA!" Maria yells at poor stupid Bandanna, who promptly gets all up in Delia's face, telling her that she had better turn around and skedaddle before she gets hurt. So, Delia turns to head for the door...but then whirls around and pistol-whips him! Hard, too. Bandanna falls to the ground, holding his nose as blood spills everywhere. I was just thinking that there hadn't been enough pistol-whipping in this show thus far. I'm really glad they've rectified that. Maria yelps that she has no idea where Rafael is. "He killed a U.S. Federal Agent, so think real hard," Delia suggests, shoving the girl against the wall. Maria swears that she has no idea where her brother is. Delia shoves her again. "You tell Rafael Chapa he cannot hide," she yells. "Wherever he is on this earth, all he can do is hope somebody else finds him before I do. You listening?" she asks. Maria nods, frightened. "And be careful who you hang out with, because I'm going to be watching you!" Delia adds, before stomping off. Dude, she kicks ass.
