He wants to question them. It turns out that Malachi was in prison at the time of his wife's murder.
Branch is out for vengeance & forces a water liquid, mixed with huge amounts of peyote, down Sam's throat. He is left out in the middle of nowhere to suffer from the after effects. He starts throwing up as Branch drives off in his car. His search for David Ridges continues as he grows obsessed & not in a good way.
Walt visits a man named Chance who is a former convict. He pulls out a rifle & threatens to kill Walt for walking onto his property. Walt asks him if he knew Miller Beck & notices that Chance has a car with an expired Colorado license plate. He confiscates the plate as Chance claims that it isn't his car.
Will Branch continue on his quest to seek out a dead man? Can Walt get any closer to the man who paid Miller to kill his wife? Does Malachi get out of prison on parole? You can watch the full episode of “Wanted Man” at the official website of Hulu.
