In 2017, Mansell (Boyd Holbrook) robs a crew of drug dealers at their house, with the help of Sweety (Vondie Curtis-Hall). After retrieving the money, Mansell kills the dealers and flees with Sweety. Three days later, Mansell is arrested when one of the dealers survives and identifies him. In prison, Mansell is visited by Carolyn (Aunjanue Ellis), who says she will represent him as his lawyer.
In the present day, Raylan (Timothy Olyphant) and Wendell (Victor Williams) visit Sandy (Adelaide Clemens) at her penthouse. The penthouse belongs to a person known as Del Weems, and Weems’ car was the one that Mansell drove the previous night. Sandy claims to have driven the car and had an incident. As she asks them to leave, Wendell recognizes her as the person who was with Mansell on the night of his arrest. After they leave, Mansell asks Sandy to drop the incriminating gun into the River Rouge. She leaves, unaware that she is being followed by Raylan and Wendell. At the River Rouge, she cannot bring herself to throw it, so she hides it on the ceiling of Sweety’s bar’s restroom.

In Grosse Pointe, Carolyn (Aunjanue Ellis) calls Jamal over a tax lien that just arrived. Suddenly, she is visited by Mansell (Boyd Holbrook), who reveals that Raylan (Timothy Olyphant) assaulted him. Finding that he was talking to Willa (Vivian Olyphant), Carolyn warns him to stay away from her and her house.
Wendell (Victor Williams) arrests Sandy (Adelaide Clemens) at the casino, while authorities conduct a raid at the bar and arrest Mansell at the penthouse. During their interrogation, authorities try to get a confession, but neither Mansell, Sandy nor Sweety (Vondie Curtis-Hall) give in. Due to Carolyn’s pressure, they are forced to release them due to a lack of evidence, as the gun was not found in Sweety’s Tavern. The weapon is revealed to be in Sweety’s position, who hides in a jukebox at the tavern. Raylan questions Skender (Alexander Pobutsky), deeming him a prime suspect. However, Skender reveals that he plans to marry Sandy but will meet “her brother” for his blessing. This makes Raylan realize that Skender is actually the target.
