In Savino's office, he and Red are discussing Angelo giving up the Tumbleweed, which neither of them thinks makes much sense. "In the old days, Chicago would retaliate, not negotiate," says Red. That's too far the other way, snaps Savino, who wants to go down the middle.
The suspicious deputy has followed Jones, who's heading up the stairs to Savino's office and pulling a gun from the back of his pants. The deputy yells for him to drop it. Jones turns and fires instead, clipping the deputy. Red and Savino charge out of the office, Savino shooting at a fleeing Jones.
Deputy follows Jones, sees him pull a gun. Tells him to drop it. Jones shoots. Red and Savino charge out, Savino fires, chases Jones off.
After, as the deputy is being rolled away on a stretcher, Savino offers his sympathies. He sounds sincere, but Dixon is having it. "Shut the hell up. You're the one who started all this!" he yells, and has to be physically restrained from taking Savino outside and teaching him a lesson on Freemont Street.
Anyway, Savino gives up Jones: "He's a pro's pro. Been doing hits for Milwaukee since he was a kid." He'll keep coming, he won't quit, says Savino. Ralph's solution is to put Savino in handcuffs and escort him out the door, right past Angelo and Rizzo, who exchange "you be-LIEVE this fuckin' guy?" glances.
So Ralph drives off with Savino in his pickup truck, telling his brother and son to find Jones. And then Jack tells Dixon to go on ahead, because he's got something else to do, and heads back into the casino.
He goes to Mia's room but is surprised to actually find her there, what with the hit out on Savino. And then out strolls Johnny Rizzo to laugh at the earnest cop looking to protect his daughter.
"You're the candy store cop. You can't even keep peace in your town, how you gonna protect my daughter?" Mia sends her father off, assures Jack she'll be fine.
Ralph and Savino are out at the ranch, Ralph splitting wood and stringing barbed wire across the road, Savino mostly complaining and suggesting he go inside and read up some of Ralph's back issues of Field & Stream.
Elsewhere, Jones stoically removes a bullet from his arm -- so Savino did clip him -- and hears on the radio that Savino was taken into custody. So he calls the sheriff's office and pretends to be a court clerk wondering when Savino's showing up. Dingbat deputy explains that Savino wasn't arrested but is under the sheriff's protection, and all but gives him directions to the ranch. Jones calls Milwaukee to say he's going to need a few more men.
