Deputy Solverson learns that the frozen man found in the woods had been abducted from his workplace in St. Paul, probably due to gambling debts. A still image taken from the security cameras shows the kidnapper's partially obscured face. When Nygaard calls on Gina Hess, Sam's widow, regarding Sam's life insurance policy, Mr. Numbers and Mr. Wrench are outside watching the Hess house. They later visit Nygaard's office, intimidating him for information, but leave when Solverson unexpectedly arrives. Solverson lets Nygaard glimpse Malvo's photo, and his reaction convinces her that he recognizes him. Meanwhile, Malvo informs Don Chumph, Mrs. Milos' fitness instructor, that he knows Chumph is the blackmailer. Malvo takes over the blackmail scheme and begins exploiting Milos' extreme religious beliefs. He kills Milos' dog, replaces his pain medication with adderall, and sabotages the plumbing system, causing pig's blood to flow out of the shower head. Officer Grimly finally admits to his Lieutenant that he let Malvo off for speeding, then he visits the Bemidji police department and talks to Solverson about the murders.
