In jail, Mr. Numbers and Mr. Wrench forcefully obtain Malvo's name from Nygaard. They are released, but Nygaard is taken to the hospital with a severe infection. A stray shotgun pellet struck his hand when Chief Thurman was shot. Nygaard had been concealing the wound, knowing it proves he was in the room when Thurman was killed. With this new evidence, Solverson convinces Chief Oswalt that the recent events are related. With Milos close to paying the blackmail demand, Malvo locks Chumph in Chumph's kitchen pantry overnight to prevent him from ruining the scheme. After Malvo drives Milos home, Malvo spots Grimly parked near the house and follows him home. Outside, Malvo is confronted by Grimly's neighbor, whom Malvo threatens before driving away.
