An FBI search of the Snells' field yields a surprise. Playing hardball, Agent Petty questions Wilkes. The Byrdes mourn a loss.
Buddy dies in Wendy's car as they leave the Snell farm, and the Byrdes arrange an elaborate funeral. Jonah uses Buddy's Rolodex to contact his friends, and the large crowd at the service includes Frank and his Kansas City associates.
Roy leads a raid on the Snell farm, and Jacob says the burned field was an intentional controlled fire. Roy scoffs, but is ecstatic to find buried bones. Mason returns, hoping the bones include Grace's remains, and volunteers Zeke for DNA testing. Marty and the Snells disinter several Snell ancestors and use their remains to replace the bones the FBI found, throwing off the test results and enabling Jacob to claim authorities desecrated his family's ancient burial places.
Roy interrogates Wilkes, who offers to inform on Marty in exchange for Wendy's protection, but she refuses to leave Marty. Ruth agrees to help her father with his illegal activities, deciding that working with Marty will not produce the long term benefits she hoped for. Marty promises Rachel that after the casino is approved, he will return the Blue Cat to her. She kisses Marty to prevent him from revealing more, and then reveals she is wearing a wire.
