Henry will be charged with the murder of a man who killed Walt's wife in Denver. Cady Longmire tells Walt she needs to help Henry, but he says he will take care of it.
Henry is surrounded by Native inmates & they pick a fight with him. The male who hates Walt says that it is go red or go dead. Meaning, go tribal native or get killed helping the white sheriff.
