After dodging a close call with Gary's death, Raylan puts his focus back on Quarles, who is having logistical problems with Sheriff Napier's campaign. After Raylan is visited by Ava, he sees Boyd in jail, who tells Raylan that he is being framed by Tanner. He explains Tanner's involvement with Quarles and the blowing up of Sheriff Napier's car, which leads Raylan to deduce that Tanner was the one who got away from the mobile Oxy clinic. Raylan clears Boyd's name for the bombing, which lets Boyd show up to a town hall debate between Quarles' candidate Sheriff Napier and Boyd's candidate Shelby (Jim Beaver). With the help of his charisma, Boyd wins over the crowd in favor of Shelby. Raylan looks for Tanner, who is told by Limehouse's man Errol to get a refund for the bomb he put in Napier's car. The two of them rob the old bomb maker, but Tanner steps on a landmine. He gives Errol the money to give to his mother before it arms itself. Raylan later arrives on the scene to try to get information out of him, but the mine explodes under Tanner before he could get anything. However, Raylan watches Tanner's mother's house and sees Errol delivering the money to her. He visits Limehouse that night and warns him that he's getting closer to burying Quarles, but Limehouse doesn't seem worried, and instead menacingly reminds Raylan of when he nearly killed his dad right in front of him when Raylan was little. Elsewhere, Ava goes against Johnny Crowder's wishes when she kills an abusive pimp who was paying Boyd Crowder protection money, but tells a curious Boyd that she is considering taking on his position.
