Cormac's a sweaty mess as he follows the train tracks Keith found earlier. Let's just think this out clearly: he's after Keith to kill him. Not only is he following Keith's footprints, there's no other reason he'd be trudging through the dangerous desert on foot when he has the keys to Keith's car (and as if he wouldn't know how to hotwire one anyway). And if he's trying to kill Keith, there's absolutely no reason for him to have staged Kendall's shooting, because he didn't plan to leave the witness alive. There's no logical wiggle room here that I can see, so I have to conclude that Kendall's pushing up daisies. At least she's well-equipped for the task. Anyway, Cormac sees the spy pen (although the "spy" part looks, from what we'll soon learn, unbeknownst to him) next to the tracks. He approaches it, and his attention's distracted enough that he doesn't notice the intervening bear trap until his leg gets mangled in it. Geez, I hope this isn't indicative of the level of training of our troops. Seeing a veteran fall for the "Look, something shiny!" ploy doesn't inspire a whole lot of confidence.
Veronica gets back to her car and finds a bouquet of flowers and an invitation to a "special private party" that night at the sorority house.
Back in the desert, Cormac has freed his leg from the trap and dragged himself a little ways, but not nearly far enough to get away from his brother Liam. Liam says that Cormac betrayed him -- he was supposed to take care (in the literal sense, not the sense in which he's about to "take care" of his brother) of Cormac's "trashy girlfriend," and in return, Liam would get a cut of his cash. He steps on Cormac's wound, and then draws a gun and asks where the money is. Cormac tells him that he found some cash, but that most of it is missing, and he doesn't know what Kendall did with it. It seemed kind of silly at first that he'd off Kendall without checking up on that first, but I guess that (a) he trusted that she was into him enough that she wouldn't betray him, and (b) he knew that Keith was going to discover sooner or later that Cormac had lifted Keith's gun, and the best opportunity he was likely to have to make his move was when Keith stepped out to the car. Still, I don't know what the rush to kill her was, unless he was worried that Liam would get impatient, which I have to admit seems like a legitimate fear at the moment. Liam asks one more time, but when Cormac can't change his story, he snarls, "Mom always liked you best," and blows Cormac's brains out. Remind me never to stiff my sister.
