That's right: it means that Ralph is heading to the drop pretending to be Andy. He pulls up to a shack far from town, the two remaining kidnappers waiting for him and wanting to make sure he didn't do anything stupid like bring the law with him. Ralph points out they'd have seen anyone coming into the canyon, like they did him. Which is immediately disproven by the fact that we now see Jack sneaking around, having ridden a horse and he's not all that far away. Ralph wants Tim back, but after the kidnappers get their money from the car, it appears that the terms of the deal have changed. "He'll live longer than you, but not by much," says one of them, raising his rifle. Ralph takes off his hat and puts it in front of his face, the signal for Jack to start shooting.
Jack takes out one of them and Ralph starts wrestling with the other, who winds up shot, writhing on the ground. Ralph wants to know where Tim is and gives the guy a choice, putting his foot on the guy's leg: "I'm giving you a choice: A limp or a wheelchair, which is it?" Buddy doesn't take long to reach a decision; Tim's in the shed behind them.
So Ralph goes in and pulls Tim from underground space under a trapdoor. The sappy music swells and Tim is reunited with his parents at the sheriff's office, where an ecstatic June and Milton hug their kid. Then June looks sad as her brother is led past in handcuffs and Milton shakes Ralph's hand and apologizes for having ever doubted him. You are forgiven. THIS TIME. But doubt Sheriff Ralph Lamb in the future at your peril!
At the airport -- huge old-timey jet-liner painted in the background -- Jones finds Cornaro's car and a copy of a ticket to Los Angeles not at all suspiciously planted inside, and Red reports to Savino that Jones was on a plane to L.A. himself an hour later. Vincent's got some good news of his own: the dinner went great and he's getting the Tumbleweed. Utter bullshit that this dinner was such a big deal and we don't even get to see it! Laura comes in, and everything's coming up Vincent, because she's agreed to come to Vegas. She's got one condition, though: From now on, Vincent tells her everything. "No more secrets," he says. It's easy to agree to something if you don't actually plan to honor the agreement.
