Taudrey steps out of her car and walks up to ShadJackBlack's ravaged hut holding a gun. Sitting dejectedly in front of the place, he tells her, "They came for it." He tells her he doesn't have it anymore, and she goes sifting through the rubble of his ruined home, screaming, "I can't leave without it!" Oh, don't worry. They'll let you leave soon enough, dear.
And so, as if ABC had ordered a television program entitled Watch Dan Write His Thesis, we watch Jim push papers around a desk until a suited man approaches -- the manager, we learn -- and asks if he can be of help. Jim says that he can, letting the guy know that the financial statements are -- surprise! -- incomplete. The manager apologizes that those are the only statements the bank has, and Jim cites numerous other inconsistencies that make this bank more like "a shoebox of cash which gets hidden under a mattress. Only this time, the mattress is the entire town." The manager gives a nod toward the teller, and Jim knows at once that he's had her set off a silent alarm. Jim stands up and rants, "I just witnessed your Main Street go from ghost town to boom town in the course of an hour," which I'm recapping simply because it was in the promo and also because Boomtown is a show that people watch, and I wanted you nice people to see what a show people watched looked like. Moments later, Pawn enters the bank and sees the varmint troublemaker making trouble, demanding in her resurgent accent, "Outside, Jimbo." Walking back down Main Street, she lets him know, "I should have shot you when I had the chance." The ambiguous sting is going down tomorrow, she continues, so for the meantime, his surveillance anklet has been limited to his hotel room, which he's not allowed leave at all. Jim's disgusted: "You and I are both government agents. We both have our jurisdictions. Inside that bank is mine." She clarifies for him that she's a government agent and that he's "an accountant. Go count something. In your room. I'll tell you when you can come out."
