to limit contact to 10 minutes.

He's still in withdrawal,

Alright.

Did you know Clark from before?

Otis?

Did you know him?

No... I knew about Tsalal,

but I didn't know the men there.

What did he want with you?

He was asking how I
survived my injuries.

[SNIFFLES]

And how did you?

f*ck, man. Does it really
look to you like I did?

[GRUNTS]

Alright... where is Clark now?

I don't know.

Uh, you said...

you said that he was...

he was goin' back to the Night Country.

- I did?
- Yeah, at the dredge.

- What did that mean?
- I don't know.

- He was crazy as sh*t, man.
- Alright, what else did he say?

- "She's awake."
- HOLDEN: "She's awake."

Said that a bunch of times.

He said, "I have to hide.

She's out there."

Alright.

Let's talk about back then.

What happened on the
day of your injuries?

[SIGHS]

sh*t was 30 years ago.

What does it matter?

It matters.

Tell me.

There was a cave-in.

Men d*ed trapped in the ice.

We ran out for help...

but there was a blizzard.

I heard...

[QUIET, OMINOUS MUSIC PLAYING]

Otis?

... somethin'...

screaming, howling.

The other men started
following the sound.

I tried to go after them and then...

nothin'.

this the cave system you were mapping?

Uh, yeah, the palm oil,
video games, cruise lines.

Yeah, and four deals in
Canada and two in China

with Norbank Securities,

which is a founding partner of...

[SCOFFS]

Silver Sky Mining. [CHUCKLES]

This is evidence.

That means... the mine bankrolls Tsalal,

and then Tsalal pushes out

bogus pollution numbers for 'em.

- It's definitely possible.
- Oh, wow.

Hey, sorry about the divorce.

- It's not a divorce, Chief.
- Whatever.

You know I hate Pepsi, Prior.

Yeah, well, the machine

Fine.

You okay?

Yeah.

Thanks.

What about Sheri?

- She okay?
- f*ck Sheri.

f*ck Sheri? Why?

Heard you got kicked out.

You knew?

She couldn't stop crying, Prior.

You're an assh*le.

Ya know, she told me about when
she first fell in love with you.

She saw you play.

Senior year? Finals?

No, this game you lost.

You fell on your ass.

- And then...
- Huey Larson scored?

Mm-hmm.

She said that everyone
gave you so much sh*t

and you just had this stupid,
idiot smile on your face.

And then she found out that
Huey's dad had had a stroke.

You fell on purpose, didn't you?

No.

She just misses that guy, Prior.

Don't let Liz ruin that guy, okay?

She's not good with
people she cares about.

[DOOR OPENS]

You're not really keepin'
her in there, are you?

She needs to get how
vulnerable she's makin' herself.

[SIGHS]

I mean, come on, Liz.

She's just young. She's
trying to do the right thing.

No, she's not. She's just
doin' it to piss me off.

You know what? Don't come
tellin' me how to handle my sh*t.

You know how many phone
calls I had to field about you

kickin' the sh*t out of

Mm, not okay.

Where are you goin'?

I'm goin' to meet Kate McKittrick

Uh, yeah. So, first of all,

uh, we all know that, uh,
the mess at the protests,

that's on Troopers
running a shitty outfit.

Not on APF, it's not on me.

[SIGHS] So, as long as we're here...

As long as we're here... shall we?

So, this came from our
security cameras up north.

It's 9:15 this mornin',
during the lead-up to the riot.

[SIGHS]

Why are you and Trooper Navarro

in a remote section of Silver Sky land?

It's just a question, Liz.

It's police business.

Has to do with the Tsalal investigation.

On Silver Sky property.

What led you to that location?

Well... we got some
intel about the area.

There's an abandoned cave,

and, uh, we located an engineer

who had some information
about, uh, Raymond Clark,

the missing scientist.

Who's the engineer?

Otis Heiss.

Well, um, the good news
for you and Mr. Heiss

is that it turns out this
isn't a m*rder case after all.

Wait, what do you mean?

What does she mean?

Forensics came back.
It was a weather event.

"Slab avalanche."

They're sudden and can
move at 100 miles an hour.

An avalanche? Come on.

[INHALES]

It was the last sunset
before the long night.

Theory is they went outside to watch it.

What about the ears,
and the eyes, and...

Ruptured eardrums and,
uh, damaged soft tissue

are common during a flash freeze.

- Yeah, okay...
- And, and...

fatal hypothermia
causes hallucinations...

But you're, you're saying the
official word from Anchorage

is they froze to death?

Well, um, [SIGHS] I know
it's a relief for all of us

that there's not some k*ller
out there on the loose.

Well, it's convenient, isn't it?

'Cause the mine bankrolls Tsalal.

Well, of course.

I mean, we donate to a lot
of worthy research projects

and Tsalal's in our own
backyard. You know what?

- Their work was an incredible...
- Yeah, incredible work.

But the funding

is for an independent outfit

that verifies your pollution numbers.

You don't think that's
a conflict of interest?

Well, I'll have to look into it,

but I-I don't see
what possible relation

it could have with a weather event.

Ah, f*ck you and your
f*cking weather event.

You know what? I'm gonna have
to... I'm gonna leave you two alone.

Yeah. I'm-I'm sorry
Bill's such a terrible lay.

You have my sympathies.

Are you out of your f*cking mind?

The Annie K. case, remember?

Look, that, that location, that cave,

that's where she was k*lled.

The two cases are linked.

We're almost there.

Three years ago, you and your
partner, Evangeline Navarro,

responded to a domestic
v*olence call in Linden Village?

William Wheeler, 43, white male.

It was a m*rder-su1c1de,

except there was no su1c1de, was there?

- I don't know what you're talking...
- Stop.

This case is closed, Liz.

What happened to you?

- Yeah, we paid you well.
