This is what we know from the last episode “Population 25.” Walt went up against an extremist named “Chance” who killed an FBI agent & a state patrolman. Vic & Sean were abducted by Chance's extremist family & Walt went to the home to save their lives at the cost of his own. He challenged Chance to an old west gun duel. Walt counted to three & both shot at each other. Walt survived, but we didn't know that at the end of the episode because it became an intense cliff hanger.
Ed Gorsky helped Walt get Vic & Sean to safety. He had been stalking Vic for over a year when he supposedly left Absaroka County. He admitted that he sent those photos of Walt & Vic entering that motel room during an investigation. Vic & Sean were on a three day weekend to concentrate on their marriage when their car crashed on the highway. When Ed brought Vic & Sean to safety. He finally said goodbye to her.
Meanwhile, Branch went on the internet to find out about Vic & Ed. He found out that she turned Ed & his partner in to the authorities. He assumes that she will do the same to him & breaks into her home. He finds her laptop & discovers an email she sent to Walt. It detailed the peyote, the gunshot wound & Branch's unstable mind. He may not be able to perform his job.
