Synopsis[edit | edit source]

Burke talks with Maggie Evans.

Jason McGuire arrives at the Blue Whale and finds Burke Devlin there. He hasn't seen Burke since the night Willie and he got into a fist fight. Burke grills McGuire about Willie's whereabouts. Jason has no more an idea where Willie is than anybody else. Burke thinks Jason is covering for him.

Meanwhile, Joe Haskell arrives and sits at a table with Maggie Evans. Burke joins them after finishing his conversation with Jason. Joe is upset because he has just learned that one of his uncle's prized calves has been viciously killed. It's body was found completely drained of blood.

To the shock of everyone around – Willie Loomis stumbles into the Blue Whale. He is a complete shell of a man and actively avoids everyone around him. Burke approaches Willie and warns him about remaining in town. Willie shrinks away from him, refusing to get into any trouble with Burke.

Jason approaches Willie and questions him on where he's been. He notices that the sleeve of Willie's shirt is stained with blood. Willie refuses to answer any more of Jason's inquiries.
