AJ is leaving when Lacey sees him. She talks to him about how much the house has changed, and that Carla makes it cold. Hap and Wick are fighting, and everything feels cold. He assures her that she'll find a way to make it warm again. She kisses AJ, as Carla looks on from afar. 

At dinner, Hap makes a toast about survival, and how lucky he realizes he is to be surrounded by people he cares about and who care for him. They're all lucky. He toasts to love, friends, family, and oil, by God. 

Hap asks is Cody is aware of the new deal. Billy changes his mind about the deal, and ultimately decides that he needs to provide a home for his family first and foremost. Hap thinks Billy is making a mistake, but Billy insists that upsetting Cody would be a bigger one.

After dinner, Hap point blank asks Wick where he was the night of the rig explosion. Wick fumbles through another explanation when the sheriff arrives at the home. He thinks that he has found the thief, dead. It's the man from earlier, the man who refused to buy the oil from Wick. 

Wick thinks that it's over...the sheriff reminds him that it's not. Now he has a murder to solve. 

Wick goes to see Gary. Gary killed the man before he could sell them out for a reward. Wick tears up. He realizes that he is in way over his head.
