Tuesday's episode of "Justified" is titled "Where's Waldo," so it seems Raylan Givens will be investigating what happened to Mr. Waldo Truth, which is the name on the drivers license he found in the bag in Arlo's wall.
The show starts with the conclusion of some sex between Raylan and the waitress. She's got to get up and make the bar deliveries, but he says he'll do it. Down in the bar he's getting the alcohol delivered when someone walks in and pours themselves a beer. Raylan tells him to get out, and he does, but he throws over a chair on his way.
Meanwhile at Boyd's bar, Ava is also taking deliveries when Ella May comes in. She missed her assignment last night as one of Ava's prostitutes, and she starts to read Ava some scripture.
Ella May: That's from Palms...number 62.
Ava: You mean Psalms.
Ella May tells her that Preacher Billy has saved her, and she wants to save Ava, but Ava reminds her that not only is she a whore, but the two of them killed a man and dumped his body down a mine shaft. Ava tells her she'll be back at work tonight, or she's out forever.
At the Marshal's office, Art welcomes Patrick, another officer from Bowling Green. He's here for a job transfer, so Art tells him all about his office. He tells him about Tim, the former Army Ranger sniper.
Art: Probably got PTSD, probably an alcoholic. Not a matter of if that powder keg is gonna blow, but when.
He tells him about Rachel, who's brought in two of the top fifteen fugitives to the office.
Art: I thought she was gonna be the one that would take this office over after I got ready to retire, but now she's left her husband. So it's gonna be fun to monitor her emotional state over the next year, see if she can keep it together.
Finally Art talks about Raylan, a local boy who's been investigated often, and who has a father in prison for killing two people, and just killed someone else in prison last night. Now Art has to tell Raylan about it. Patrick wisely decides to leave.
After a commercial break, Art tells Raylan about Arlo killing the prison trustee. Raylan recognizes him from the prison when he went to show Arlo the bag.
Art: What bag? Raylan...on a scale from one to a s%$#load, how much do you need to tell me right now?
Raylan shows Art the Panamanian bag and the ID. Art says they need to check out Waldo Truth.
Boyd, Johnny, and Ava are in his office talking about the turning of Ella May and Hiram, and why their Oxy sales have dropped off. Boyd sends Johnny out to investigate.
At the office, Tim reads Raylan the rap sheet on Truth's oldest boy, as Raylan and Art check out the weapons. Raylan tells Art he doesn't have to go with them, but Art says he wants to bring in a fugitive who's been out there for thirty years collecting a draw check.
Raylan: Are you driving?
Art: No. Boss doesn't drive unless he wants to, I don't want to. But we are going to stop for lunch before we get to the Truth's in case you shoot one of them, then we won't get to go after.
Ella May goes back to the tent and meets Cassie, Billy's sister. Cassie tells her Billy's not there, but he comes out from the back. She thanks him but says she won't be able to come back, and he asks why. She confesses to doing "awful things" that no one could ever forgive, and Billy tells her that God can still forgive. She says some people just can't be saved, but Billy convinces her to stay. He says they'll shame those who try and keep her from salvation.
The scene shifts to a backyard boxing ring, with many people putting down large bets in cash. One of the fighters is the guy who poured himself a beer in Raylan's bar earlier. They cut away to Colt roughing up Danny, and he shows Boyd that Danny has been selling heroin on Boyd's turf. Ava knocks on the trailer door and tells Boyd he's got to see what's going on. Back inside, his whorehouse is now full of children, singing "Shall We Gather At The River" and passing out fake million dollar bills from the church.
From there Boyd goes to see Sheriff Shelby Parlow, and asks him if he's gotten anything on the church. Parlow asks him if he remembers a phone conversation they had a few months ago.
Sheriff Parlow: The one where I expressed my opinion that we were square?
Boyd: Well now, Shelby, I thought we were a circle.
Parlow tells him he'll turn his head, but he can't be part of Boyd's business. He winds up giving Boyd the information on the church anyway. Billy and Cassie have been in five cities in three years, each one worse than the previous. Boyd thinks they come in and force the criminal element in these towns to pay them to leave.
Our back yard fighter has won, but he feels like the house owner is shafting him. He's trying to get something set up in town, though, and the owner is helping him. As he leaves, two angry bettors are waiting on him since he cost them money. He pulps both of them quickly.
Raylan, Art, and Tim are waiting on someone from the Truth family to come pick up their check. Art points out to Raylan that he's been keeping "addict hours," and Tim agrees.
Art: The question is, why?
Tim: Smart money in the office is on "exotic dancing."
Art reminds him that it's against policy for Raylan to be doing any work on the side. Raylan changes the subject to Art's impending retirement, and while they're talking, Truth grandson Milo comes to the mailbox to get the check. They follow him, but he notices and runs back to the house yelling that he's being chased by "perverts."
The Truth family comes out, all armed, and a standoff commences. They seem ready to die until the mother of the house comes out, and says they don't look like perverts. Well, except Art. He asks about Waldo Truth, and she says he's not there. Art tells them until they get Waldo, the government disability checks are going to stop. That gets Momma Truth to send for Waldo.
