“Population 25” opened with Walt standing on the rocky ledge looking out into the country landscape. He walks through more rocky terrain with his shot gun. He comes upon ashes from a burnt fire & frightens Branch who has been sleeping under several tree branches covered in leaves.
Sean is covering Vic's eyes with his hands in order to surprise her. Sean rented a yellow convertible for their weekend vacation trip to Jackson Hole, Wyoming. The Ferg is searching for the last name of Darius with whom Henry took a photo of when he met with Malachi. Ferg shows that picture to Branch & fills him in on Henry's murder case. Branch asks if Darius has any connection to David Ridges.
Sean is jamming out to rock music & Vic feels sick. Sean glances off the road for a few seconds & doesn't see the bear eating on the highway. He swerves to miss the animal & crashes the convertible. Back at the office, Branch & Walt argue over David Ridges & Branch's obsession with him. Walt has to visit Denver to investigate where the murder took place of his late wife Martha & Miller Beck. He orders Branch to do his job without obsessing over David.
Sean hurt his leg in the crash & Vic is okay. Their cell phone's battery is running low & Vic leaves her gun with Sean. She is going to head toward the mail box she noticed on the road. She wants to see if she can use the land line phone at the house to call for help. Back at the “red pony” bar, Walt asks Henry about Deena with whom he has no more contact with. Walt also asks about Miller Beck & when he met up with Henry in Denver.
Sean tries to wave down a car in the middle of the road. He recognizes the man inside & it was Ed Gorsky. He followed Vic back from Philadelphia who sent those photos of her & Walt entering that motel. Sean calls Walt & tells him that he thinks Ed kidnapped Vic.
Can Walt ever get to Denver to investigate? What really happened to Vic? And did Ed finally kidnap her for himself? Will Branch ever shake loose this obsession with David Ridges? You can watch the full episode of “Population 25” at the A&E website.
