The Marshals wait inside the house for Waldo, and when he arrives they question him. He seems to be very polite, and admits to serving eleven years for armed robbery back in 1971. They bring out the ID and ask him about Arlo, and he denies knowing anything about it. They start to arrest him for parole violations, and "Waldo" admits he's actually Harry, and came to know the Truth family fifteen years ago to help them keep their government draw. The youngest Truth pulls a gun on Raylan when he hears they're losing their draw, but he quickly takes it away from him. Raylan says they're going to run the entire family in for a wide variety of charges, so the draw is the least of their worries.
Momma Truth tells Raylan that she hasn't seen Waldo in thirty years, not since he was taken away by a man, "some kind of pilot." Him leaving was the best thing that could have happened, because he was violent.
Momma Truth: We got in a fight so bad one time, I stabbed him in the cheek.
Raylan: You stabbed him in the face?
Momma Truth: No honey. Not that cheek.
Art asks her the name of the man who took Waldo away, and she says something like "Jew." He asks if it was "Drew Thompson," and she says yes. Art promptly takes the handcuffs off Harry, compliments the Truths on having a lovely family, and leaves with their guns, but without any arrests.
By the way, Harry was played by Dave Florek, who played Kramer's boss at the bagel shop in the "Festivus" episode of Seinfeld, "The Strike." You're welcome, America. That one bothered me for about an hour before I remembered it.
At the tent revival, Ella May is getting baptized by Preacher Billy. He looks up and sees Boyd and two of his men there. Billy tries to bring Boyd in to be saved. Boyd tells him that he's made a mistake trying to judge the people of Harlan, when he doesn't know them. He tells Billy that he's stood where Billy stands, and his faith was shattered. Boyd asks why he left his previous stops, and Billy says the Lord guided him. Boyd calls him a false prophet, and Billy announces that he doesn't want anyone from his flock to give him any money. As Boyd leaves, Colt says it didn't go very well. Boyd looks at Cassie, and says he got exactly what he came for.
Back at the office, Art tells Raylan and Tim about Drew Thompson, who was the dead skydiver we saw in the opening of the first episode of the season. He describes it as "the day cocaine came to Harlan County," and shows Raylan the official report, which shows the skydiver had a scar on his bottom cheek, which means he was actually Waldo Truth, and not Drew Thompson.
Raylan: If Waldo Truth died in that driveway, then where the H%$# is Drew Thompson?
Art: Well, I don't know...but I'll bet your Daddy does.
Boyd tells his men that Cassie was the only person in the church who wasn't smiling, so that makes her the brains behind the operation. Wynn Duffy and his men show up, and Boyd tells him he knows that Danny, who's tied up, was selling for Wynn. Wynn says he's can't be responsible for all of his men and apologizes, but Boyd tells him he doesn't want an apology, he wants to be partners.
Wynn: But even if I were looking for a partner, which I'm not, by the way...it would have to be someone I can trust.
Boyd: Well, you can trust me.
Wynn: But I don't even trust the way you just now said I could trust you.
Boyd says if Wynn wants Danny to leave alive, he'll reconsider, so Wynn just shoots Danny in the head. Wynn again denies selling on Boyd's turf but before he leaves, he asks if Boyd knows why Arlo killed the trustee in prison. Boyd doesn't seem to be aware of it.
Back at the bar, Raylan and the waitress are closing up and start to make out, when the backyard fighter walks in. Raylan tells him to get out, but he says he needs to talk to his wife first. Raylan turns to the waitress, so it's apparently news to him.
Another strong episode this week, one that moves along the central mystery while giving us a bit more depth on the other conflicts. From Art talking about how crazy his department is to Boyd preparing for a faceoff with Billy, things seem to be progressing nicely.
Rating: Eight out of a possible ten Truth family standoffs.
