Previously Nancy tried to get Guillermo to kill Pilar -- that didn't work out so well -- and then she got money for everybody from the reporter but he died, and then Schiff robbed the post office once again, and then she got caught in the reporter's motel room with poor Esteban and sad-face Guillermo about to kill her.
But what's interesting is how the fix is always the big problem. Not just immediately but spread out over the whole next season. Like, Stevie was the miracle fix two years ago and he was the big problem last year -- getting him born, staying alive and with him, keeping her other kids safe -- and a major one this year. And killing Pilar was the fix last year but that's been half the problem this year. A month in Seattle, a month on the road, a month in Dearborn: Pilar, then Stevie making sure they couldn't stay on the road forever, and then both at once combining into a major incrimination for Nancy's like entire life.
Which I like, because anything that is the fix stops being the fix the second it becomes the fix. Your brain wasn't designed to find one answer and stick with it, it was designed to find one answer and then find the next answer. So this episode is great, and very tense and very unlike everything last sad week, and it leads to a fix that clearly is going to be a big problem, but is also maybe the most exciting finale in a while.
She was a dancer, it's all she's ever doing. Even when she looks like she's falling, even when she's jumping, it's just another dance move. That was the first fix and that was the first problem. She dances herself into cages and then back out of them again.
So Esteban's playing that recording over and over: "Every time, I'm walking down that tunnel. Every time. And once I find out what's at the end, I'll figure it out then. But at least I'll know. I'll know. Why would you not want to know?"
She tells them both hola and congratulates them on getting back together. "Guess it's only fitting that, uh, since... Since I broke you up..." She doesn't really finish that thought because Guillermo chloroforms her at that point, with slidy-aroundy camera and slidy-aroundy music sliding all around.
Andy heads over to Lars Guinard's house with Silas's ticket and passport, even though he knows it is a fool's errand, and Silas is doing all this car-related busywork like a witness on Law & Order getting interviewed about a crime, and Andy incorrectly thinks Silas refusing to go with them is about being pissed about Nancy, so he gives a great speech with his eyes bugging out:
