The (fictitious) Ronald Reagan film being played in the theater during a flashback
As Otto Gerhardt is being taken to a doctor appointment, Simone has sex with Mike, inadvertently mentioning the doctor visit. The Kitchens then eliminate Otto's protectors in the parking lot outside the medical clinic, leaving Otto unharmed. Meanwhile, Floyd, Dodd, and Bear meet with Joe Bulo and propose a counter-offer to his buyout: a partnership. Bulo balks at the idea, after Dodd assaulted two of his men earlier. Bulo phones his superiors, who reject the Gerhardts' proposal and now offer two million dollars less than previously and demands the Gerhardts' complete surrender. In Luverne, Hanzee's investigation leads him to find Rye's belt buckle in the Blumquist fireplace. Lou talks to the Blumquists regarding his suspicions that they are involved in Rye's death, but they stubbornly refuse to cooperate. He warns them of the Gerhardts' violent history. At the Gerhardt farm, Floyd tells the family to prepare for war.
