Ralph visits Rick, who's sporting a nasty cut on his lip. Ralph explains about meeting with Zumo, and he knows about the fake diamond bracelet. Rick is all bluster at first --"She chose me. Move on," he says -- but eventually confesses to making a couple of bad investments, and he thought a few thousand might tide them over for a couple of months. And then it's a real sob story about how he figured if he spent enough money on Barbara, she'd forget all about Ralph, which she never did, and how he was always second choice, and all this sounds like an awfully seriously relationship, especially considering how all season we've been led to believe Ralph has been pining for his wife since she died and all. He's got the money for him. Asks how long he was going to keep Barbara in the dark.
Meanwhile, Dixon and Yvonne are partaking in more of their wacky wedding shenanigans even though no one cares, and when some actual police work is done, they find out that the $25,000 of Marjorie's was to buy the brushland where her body was found. Dixon heads to the county clerk's office to pull the deed. Jack might go too, except Ralph has just walked back in, and it's more important for Jack to bust his balls over Barbara. "Can't expect a person to stay if you don't make room for them," says
Savino lowers the boom on Mia, who is obviously surprised, and asks if this was her dad's decision. Savino says Chicago wants to make a change, and Rizzo fought like hell to keep her there. You know, if that were really the case, I think Rizzo would be telling her this, so it's not the most plausible of lies. Mia wants to know who's taking over. Why, it's ... uh ... Count Roomington from Chicago! Mia asks if it has anything to do with her and Jack, a situation that Savino doesn't seem to know anything about, but before they can get into it, Red comes in and Mia leaves.
Savino's pissed at Rizzo for making him do this, and for being an all-around disaster ever since he got there; he's either going to bankrupt them or get them killed or thrown in jail. He points out that the case would go away if Rizzo weren't around, and Red urges caution. "He's a damn animal, and I'm sick of cleaning up after him," says Savino. Red points out they'd never get permission from Chicago, and they sure as hell shouldn't do it without permission. Like a poor sap on a late-night infomercial, Savino says there's got to be another way.
