June 7, 2017
After the prison bus crashes, Yuri, Meemo and Golem attempt to get to Nikki. However, with the help of Mr. Wrench, Nikki escapes, and the two, shackled together, run into the woods. After a long pursuit, they are discovered, attacked and wounded by Yuri and Golem but manage to kill Golem by decapitating him with their chain. Mr. Wrench senses Yuri nearby and wounds him with an axe. After breaking their chain, Nikki and Mr. Wrench happen upon a bowling alley where Nikki meets Paul Marrane (Ray Wise). Marrane encourages her to fight the evil in the world. He tells her a car is available which she and Mr. Wrench flee in. Yuri reaches the same bowling alley where Marrane confronts him with the sins of his past. On Christmas morning, Gloria is called to the scene of the bus crime; and Sy is poisoned by Varga, sending him into a coma. Two-and-a-half months later, Nikki and Mr. Wrench are still at large, Yuri has gone missing, Gloria has been officially demoted to deputy, and Varga has expanded Emmit's business after becoming the sole partner of Emmit. While visiting Sy, Emmit is approached again by Gloria and Winnie and is shocked to discover his late brother's car parked in his parking space. Further abnormalities occur when Emmit discovers all the pictures in his office have been replaced by photos of the infamous stamp, and that someone has placed a fake mustache on him while he sleeps. Emmit starts to become incredibly guilty over the fact that he killed his brother and starts to believe that either Ray is still alive or Nikki is plotting revenge. Varga tries to give him tranquilizers to calm him, which Emmit feigns taking. Later, Emmit arrives at the police station, where he announces to Gloria that he has come to confess.
