Mia confronts Rizzo, who blames Savino for the firing but isn't very convincing because he also says she's better than this job and should be working in a bank. Memo to dad, she TRIED that, she points out, but couldn't even get a job interview: "Because I have your last name. It's the same reason boys didn't ask me to prom," she says. And now she has someone who isn't afraid -- so NOT the guy who was hiding under the bed at the start of the episode? -- and Rizzo's trying to take him away. She says he's sad and lonely, and is only happy when everyone else is sad and lonely. She stomps out, saying she's lined up interviews at the House of Cards and the Nugget, and is not leaving Vegas, OR Jack.
So it turns out Marjorie had signed over the brushland she just bought to Max Voorhees, the wrangler at the Double-N. The Lambs saddle up to head out there, but once again Ralph can't come because he has to deal with some bullshit from his ex-girlfriend. She essentially wants to know what he'd do if she weren't married. Well, he'd glower and smirk and dispense rancher wisdom! Barbara says she wanted to travel with him, to get him off the ranch and away from the memory of his wife, and have him all to herself. "You deserve better," he tells her. "So do you," she says. They kiss goodbye, and she drives off. I can't help but feel this would be a little more poignant if we had any idea Ralph had ever really given a thought to anyone other that his wife.
Anyway, the murder wraps up really stupidly, because Max denies swindling Marjorie out of the land. In fact, it was probably a surprise wedding gift to him. That's right, they were getting married! Jack can't believe none of the other women mentioned that. You know what's even MORE unbelievable? That MAX didn't mention it! Or seem at all distressed that his FIANCEE had been murdered! So who does that leave, out of the characters that were introduced this episode? There's only one left: The ranch owner. Yep, she was in love with Max, and jealous Marjorie was going to take him away, especially since she gets divorced like other people have birthdays. Anyway, she's arrested now.
Speaking of very, very dangerous moves, Savino comes clean to Rizzo about the rat and the affidavit, and then reluctantly tells him it's Mia. "Those are some big words, Vinnie," says a pissed Rizzo, but Savino's absolutely certain. But he blames Jack Lamb for getting to her and turning her against Rizzo. Oh, now if they could only just figure out what to do! "There's nothing to figure out. I'm going after the deputy," says Rizzo. Savino nods, and Rizzo goes off, murder in his heart. And probably in his pocket.
