Joe Bulo of Kansas City arrives at the Gerhardt farm, along with Mike Milligan and the two Kitchen brothers. Bulo offers Floyd Gerhardt a buyout of her family's operation but would allow them to run it. After he leaves, Floyd tells her sons, minus the missing Rye, about the meeting. Dodd bristles at his mother running the business, but she states that he can take over once the current situation settles. She then demands that Rye be found. Mike and the Kitchens also begin searching for Rye. In Luverne, Peggy resumes work at the beauty shop while Ed stays home to clean up the garage and bundle up Rye's body to take it to the butcher shop. While driving his family into town, Lou stops by the crime scene where Betsy finds Rye's gun in some weeds. Later that night, Lou sees a light on inside the closed butcher shop and finds Ed there. Lou asks to buy some bacon, while Ed does his best to distract Lou from noticing that he is putting Rye's body parts into a meat grinder.
