At the Stowaway, Carl sits alone at the bar with a loaded gun and a bottle of whiskey. Jack walks in, catching his dad off guard, and notices immediately the odd vigil his father his holding. Just as Carl is explaining that he's protecting his family, a Molotov cocktail comes flying through the window, setting the bar floor on fire. Jack rushes to get the fire extinguisher. Once the fire's out, Jack demands to know what the hell's going on. His father remains tightlipped.
In a storage room at the nightclub, the Russian militia has a bloodied Aiden tied to a wooden pillar. Sergei asks who sent him, but Aiden just spits blood at him. That always results in a punch, Aiden. Did your spy training not include watching any spy movies? Sergei says they'll give Aiden five minutes to talk or they'll transfer him somewhere else that sounds a lot like death. Ems watches all of this from inside an air duct and then watches the guards all leave Aiden alone. That... doesn't seem right. They always at least leave one bad guy on watch, right? What the hell kind of Russian militia is this?
Emanda kicks in the air vent cover and slinks into the room in her sparkly, skintight dress. She looks pretty ridiculous. As she frees Aiden, she interrogates him, reaching for any sort of connection between his crusade to avenge his sister and the downing of the jetliner. They settle on the fact that Aiden's father was a baggage handler at the airport that night. Ems assume they must've used his father the way they used hers. Just as they're making their exit, Sergie, Dmitri and all their goons burst in the room. Sergei trains a gun on Emanda while the goons restrain Aiden.
In the aftermath of the dastardly attack on the Stowaway, Jack and dad work to board up some windows. Against Jack's nagging, Carl is refusing to call the police. From the back of the bar comes sauntering in Mr. Ryan. He plays dumb about what happened tonight, but it's pretty obvious by the way he's puffing his chest that he's responsible for the fire bomb. The Porters, for their part, don't accuse Mr. Ryan outright of any wrongdoing. His proclamation that he has two sons of his own confirms that he is indeed Kenny and Trent's father. When Mr. Ryan mentions Declan in terms of Carl needing to consider his safety, it sets Mr. Porter off. Jack has to restrain him and then interjects that the Porters will be paying up, despite his father's objection. Mr. Ryan's appeased. He'll be back in an hour to collect his money. He thinks they should celebrate over some good liquor, like blue label scotch, or "rich man's candy." A man after my own heart, in that regard, at least.
