Hey, little brother.

You gonna sh**t me

or can we sit down and have a few?

I brought some of my homebrew.



Guess this is one of those "who's
gonna go first" kind of deals, huh?

You called me.

- True.
- Called people I work with.

- Also true.
- Set up a time

and a date to meet last week

- and you don't show.
- Sorry about that.

- That it?
- Well, something came up.

"Something came up."

What was so important, Russell,
you keep calling me?

Dory thinks we ought to
put the past behind us.

I tried months ago, you blew me off.

So let's get to it.

I know you think I pushed
Dad off that cliff.

I saw you there.

Colter, I didn't push him.

I don't know if he fell

or if somebody else pushed him,

but I do know that there
was somebody else

in those woods that night.

Dad had enemies, Colter.

He was a crazy son of a bitch.

He was paranoid.

I mean, the man was hard as hell on us.

Making us learn how to skin a rabbit?

Not exactly a skill I need these days.


Why would Mom let me
believe that you did it?

Yeah, I don't know.

I like to think she did
the best she could.

But Mom had her secrets, trust me.

You can't just drop that on
me and not explain yourself.

The man I saw in the woods
the night Dad d*ed,

I'd seen him once before.

I saw him talking to our mom.

Are you saying Mom had
something to do with this?

I-I don't know.

But when Dad d*ed,

she said it would best if I left.

And to keep quiet about what happened.

You didn't question that?

She said our lives depended on it.

Because of what happened to Dad?

I was a kid, so I left.

Then I got older and I just stayed gone.

- You joined the m*llitary.
- Yeah, I enlisted, you know?

Thought that was the best
way to leave it all behind.

Look, man, there's nothing
that we can say or do

to bring Dad back.

Or to make up for lost time, okay?

- What happened, happened.
- Yeah, well, then, you know...

I guess we're done here, right?


That it?

Thought this would be two brothers

burying the old family hatchet.

You know, hugging it out.

Well, you gave me a lot
to think about, didn't you?

Well, while you're doing your thinking,

there's something
I could use your help with.

You find people, right?

- For rewards?
- Yeah.

I'm trying to find an old
unit buddy off mine,

- Doug Thompson.
- What happened?

He's been missing for five days.

Wife said he left on an errand
and never came back.

It's actually why I missed our meeting,

because I was checking things out.

- Problems in the marriage?
- No.

No, Doug's a solid guy, he wouldn't...

He wouldn't ditch Tracy.

Anything else you can give me to go on?

I traced his phone to a gas
station outside of Roanoke.

It was in the trash,
it was all busted up.

His car was still there.

- Gas stations have cameras.
- They do.

Doug was on the
surveillance video until he...

bolted off camera.

And he was acting real sketchy.

Something was wrong.

I can pay you, you know, for your help.

Russell. It's not about the money.


Well, will you help me or no?

Yeah, I'll help you.

Great. Thanks.


♪ Hey, pretty baby, don't
you know it ain't my fault ♪

♪ Love to hear the steel belts

the night at a truck stop... ♪

Here you go.

Free coffee from the lobby.

Free coffee?

Yeah, no, it does the trick, trust me.

- Living here?
- Yeah, for now.

It's not that bad. They actually
got a hot tub in the back.

Met some girl from
Tallahassee the other night,

used to be a cheerleader,
like a... like, a pro one?


She's a dental hygienist now.

I'm sure this story has a point,
but we should probably go.

Listen, I wanted to ask:
We're good, right?

I mean, you believe me
about what I said about Dad?

Yeah, I-I... You know, I don't
know what to believe right now.

Let's go to your friend's, okay?

Let's go.


COLTER: You gonna tell
me about your friend, or... ?

Sure. Doug Thompson.

He's one of the good ones.
Saved my life more than once.

I owe him. He's, uh, you know,
he's like family to me.

You guys go back a ways then, huh?

Served 18 years together, same unit.

Then what? After that?

I don't know, we got out, kept in touch,

ran in the same crowd.
You know how it goes.

I-I don't know. You want me
to help you find this guy,

you're gonna have to give me something.

I-I need to know his routine,
what's this guy about? Come on.


All right. Um...

Doug's quiet.

You know, he's, some people
might say he's intense.

I hooked up him up
with this-this outfit.

Civilian contract stuff.

And that's what you do, too?

Yeah. Ex-special ops guys do.

We miss the excitement when
we transition to civilian life,

and it pays very well.

And what's the name of this outfit?

It's called the Horizon Group,
but I don't think what's going on

with Doug has anything to do with them.

What makes you say that?

Doug got into a car accident
about six weeks ago, okay?

Nothing major, but it shook him up.

He started to act weird, you know?
He was getting paranoid.

So I'm thinking maybe
he got a concussion

that triggered some PTSD and...

I-I don't know, maybe he
got scared and he ran off

- and he's hiding somewhere.
- Yeah, maybe.

This is it, last house
on the right there.




RUSSELL: Tracy, hey.

This is Colter. He's gonna
help us find Doug.

What is it? What happened?

There was a package on
my porch this morning.

- Mind if we take a look?
- Come in.

- Have a seat.
- Thanks.


- When was the delivery?
- An hour ago.

- You call the police?
- TRACY: No. I waited for you.

You think this might belong to Doug?

I don't know. Why would
someone send that to me?

- Was there a note?
- TRACY: Nothing.

You have security cameras outside?

We did, but Doug disabled them.

He was worried that people might
hack into the network, spy on us.

He's been a little off lately.

He thought people were watching him.

- He say who?
- No.

You have any idea why Doug's car

would've been found at a gas
station an hour outside of town?

No, he was just supposed to
pick up groceries at the market.

He didn't mention
anything to me, either.

Maybe this is about Horizon.

We don't know what's going on here yet.

He doesn't tell me anything
about what he does

or who he works for.

Because he can't. He can't.

You know that.

I just want to know he's okay.


I'm gonna help you find your husband.


- What's this? What are we doing?
- I'll show you.

Okay. Help me out, will you?

- Fill that in for me.
- What is this?

Some sort of homemade psych exam?

I can save you the trouble, you know.

[SCOFFS]: Oh, I-I know you're crazy.

I'm gonna try to pull
a print off this finger,

see if it belongs to Doug.


- Seriously?
- Yeah.

That's good enough.

Give me a piece of tape, couple inches.


There we go.

- Hmm.
- Something Dad didn't teach us, right?

Son of a bitch.

- Now what are you doing?
- Well, I got to send this to my guy.

- Oh, you got a guy?

I got a guy.

Sort of like a, uh, like an
op analyst, if you will.

You got an op analyst for
your rewardist hustle?

Well, it's not a hustle.

- Right. Okay.

This, uh, this work you're doing,

with Doug and Horizon, tell me about it.

Private security, mostly.

Every job's a little different.

- Off-the-books stuff?
- Oh, yeah.

And why does Doug's wife
think that his disappearance

- has something to do with Horizon?
- Tracy hates the fact

that Doug still does this kind of work.

She'd rather him, I don't
know, sell insurance,

something normal like that.

That's not Doug's speed.

And last time you talked to
him, he seemed normal?

I don't know. I wouldn't say normal.

He brought up some old mission
that we'd done in Yemen.

- With Horizon?
- No.

No, it was about ten years before that

with our old special ops unit.

Why would he bring that up?

- I don't know.

- Hey, Bobby.
- Is that your analyst?

- BOBBY: Who's that?
- My brother.

- Oh, damn, for real?
- Guessing Colter hasn't mentioned me.

- BOBBY: Nope, he didn't.
- What do you got for me, Bobby?

Right. I put a face to your finger.

Name's Len Klavens.

Matched his prints to police records.

Sending it to you now.


RUSSELL: Well, that was fast.

- COLTER: What was he arrested for?
- BOBBY: Ah, nothing serious.

Public loitering, multiple times.

- Is he homeless?
- In and out of rehabs.

Now he's in Roanoke city morgue.

d*ed two days ago.

We got to see that body.

- Yep.




I got this.

What can I help you with?

Hi, um...


Well, that is a... that's
a beautiful name.

Sadly, we, uh, we heard about
Len Klavens, recently deceased,

and, uh, we just need to see the body.

What for?

How do you like working here? Huh?

I get a good vibe from you, you know?

Kind eyes, helpful eyes. I like that.

[SCOFFS] What's he talking about?

The body might be connected

to the disappearance of another man.

Oh, I'm sorry, but
unless you are family,

- I can't let you back there.
- I didn't mention.



Look, we just, we just need
a minute or two, you know?

Promise we won't disrupt a thing,

and then afterwards, maybe, uh...

we go grab a drink or a
little somethin' somethin'.

No. Sorry.

- That was so close.
- No.

Can't believe "kind eyes" didn't work.

I didn't see you stepping up.
You got a better idea?

I might.

Gentlemen, you're free.

Time to go.

You must be Russell Shaw.

Can't imagine the things
he's got you doing.

REENIE: No, no, no.
I do not work for him.

I work with him, honey,
just get that straight.

And only sometimes,
and only when I get paid.

And, trust me, I always get paid.

I'll bet you do.

[CHUCKLES] You have an
interesting criminal record.

Disturbing the peace in Tuscaloosa

with a speedboat and a donkey?

- I wouldn't worry about that.
- I wasn't planning on it.

But you do owe me for some unpaid Fish

and Wildlife fines I
paid on your behalf.

Poaching, nice. You can Venmo me.

Thank you, but, uh, it wasn't
poaching, for the record.

COLTER: Are we, uh,
being charged or not?

No. I persuaded the prosecutor
that you were overcome with grief

and behaving irrationally.

- Thank you.
- Mm-hmm.

Lucky for you the
prosecutor sympathized.

Said that he also had
some problem clients

when he was a defense attorney.

- Fishing for compliments.
- I think she's awesome.

So, how can we repay you?

Besides the Venmo?
You're gonna buy me lunch

and tell me everything
that's been going on.


Well, I know it's not fancy,

but there's nothing better
than food off a truck.

This is not my first time.

I'm sure it's not. You might
want to avert your eyes.

I'm a sriracha on fries kind
of guy. Also, for the record,

it was not my idea to
break into the morgue.

Doesn't surprise me.

What was so important about this body?

Someone sent a finger to Doug's wife.

Okay, was your morgue
friend connected to Doug?

I mean, you worked with
him for a long time, right?

Look at you, snooping on me.

I wouldn't call it snooping.

Deep dive is more like it.

- Oh.
- m*llitary, post-m*llitary,

your extracurriculars.

El Salvador.

And I'm curious about this, uh,
employer you and Doug work for,

- the Horizon Group?
- Not much to tell. Checks clear.

- Good insurance.
- Doug's wife is suspicious,

- but so far there's no connection.
- Uh-huh.

Well, then I will reserve my judgement

- until I do some digging.
- Knock yourself out.


Oh. Balls.

All right, I got a lot going on
at work. You guys have fun,

be careful, and I'll catch
up with you later.

- COLTER: All right.
- Bye.

So, I'm-a need a sitrep on, uh,
the thing between you and her.

No situation to report.

'Cause I think she is...
[CLICKS TONGUE] ... impressive.

- Thorough.

- You saying she's fair game?
- I'm saying she's off-limits.

You sure?

Just messing with you.
[LAUGHS] Your face.

Hey, I got a little surprise for you.

Grabbed this from the morgue.

Good thing they didn't strip-search us.

- Really.

- You betcha.

Report said our fingerless body
was found near these dumpsters.

Yeah, well, if they dumped
the body here,

they weren't too concerned
with keeping it hidden.

I'm telling you, this new breed,
they don't want to take the time

to do the job right, anymore.

I mean, back in the day, you
know, it's, uh, it's a shovel,

lime, a little acid.

Six feet at least. Now... [SPUTTERS]

Yeah, well, maybe given the history

- they didn't feel the need to hide it.
- It's just sloppy work.

Okay, look, let's cut to it.

Ever since we found that
body, I get the sense

that you know something
you're not sharing with me.

There were some guys in my unit

that were, uh, they were
pretty superstitious.

Okay? Doug included.

They were into that woo-woo stuff.
The prayers and, uh, rituals.

Body parts?

Maybe, yeah. Blood magick.


Like, I heard there was, uh,
somebody you could go to

to get "blessings."

- Blessing?
- Mm-hmm.

Doug into that?

I mean, he said a few things,
now that I think about it.

There was this, uh, job we did in Peru.

He brought me to this weird shrine

and we were giving offerings.

I thought he was just messing
with me, but he was serious.

In fact, he paid an old man to out
a curse on one of our targets.

- Huh.
- What?

It's the same star and moon

- on the box with the finger it.
- Yeah.

Let's go check it out.



What can I do for you?

- Looking for some help.
- What sort of help?


I think what my brother
means is a blessing.

A strong one.

That's what you do here, right?

Well, that depends.

How did you hear of our services?

Please, we don't want any trouble.

Well, you got trouble.
I'm looking for a friend of mine.

Seen him?

So whatever you were

No, he overdosed.

So why send the finger to the house?

Give me the name.

Give me the name.


Carlos Solano.

Solano. You've heard that name before.

Why was Doug afraid of that name?

It's impossible.

Doug and I did a job in Panama.

For this Horizon contractor?

Yeah, mission was
to neutralize a target.


Health alteration,
as we like to call it.

Who was the target?

It was a businessman named Moy Solano.

Doug made the k*ll. Getting out
was a bit of a problem, though.

So that's what this
whole thing is about?

- Revenge for a botched job?
- It wasn't botched.

Solano's dead. I watched him drop.

- They made you?
- They didn't make me, they made Doug.

He had to go back
to the k*ll spot and...

one of Solano's men saw
him and snapped a picture.

Whoa, hold on, hold on a second.
Why did he go back?

It was my fault. It was on me.

I left something at the k*ll
site. I dropped my Kn*fe.

I had to make it to
the extraction point,

- so he went back.
- Why didn't Doug come to you?

He probably thought
he could deal with it.

Or he didn't want to
flag it with Horizon.

- Kept a lot of people in the dark.
- Yeah, well, that's Doug.

Thinks he can handle everything himself.



- Are you still with your brother?
- Yeah.

REENIE: Look, I know you're not
big into taking my legal advice,

but if you're planning to sniff
around Horizon, think again.

Okay? They're into
some really dark stuff,

and you cannot trust them,

and if Doug's disappearance
has something to do with them,

then I would think twice.

- Copy that.
- REENIE: What does that mean?

That you hear me and you're just
gonna ignore what I'm saying?

No, it means I hear you, but I
made a promise to Doug's wife.

He's out there, he's in danger.
I'm gonna go get him back.

Okay, you do what you got to do.

Just... keep your eyes open.

Will do.

What does Horizon know about this?

They haven't contacted me.
But that doesn't mean anything.

I think it's time we talk to them.
You have a handler?

Yeah, I don't think that's a good idea.

Listen, if Doug's out there,
if we're gonna get him back,

we need to know what we're dealing with.

All right.



ANN: I don't appreciate you being here.

I draw a strict line
between home and work.

You understand that, don't you, Russell?

- Compartmentalizing?
- Well, this couldn't wait.

Doug Thompson.

- Yeah.
- Horizon's already aware

and taking steps to
monitor the situation.

"Monitor." You mean "mitigate"?

Monitor, so as to not
inflame a situation.

More importantly, to protect
Doug and his family.

Why exactly wasn't I called in to help?

We've decided to keep you clean.

Well, it's too late for that.

As I'm aware. Bringing
your brother into this?

- Not the best move.
- Well, I'm full of those.

You're also ignorant to wider concerns.

Why is Moy Solano a target?

You don't get to ask that question.

I don't work for you, but what
I can do is I can make sure

that whatever happens to
Doug lands at your feet.

COLTER: You know what, Russ?
Let's get out of here.

We'll call Reenie.
Have her keep digging.

I would appreciate it if you
kept a tight circle on this,

as per your NDA.

Well, NDA's no bueno now
that Doug's been snatched.

- We don't know that.
- I think we do.

What is it about Solano?

Come on, we're not gonna stop.

Solano was funding a rebel organization

trying to overthrow the government.

Who hired you to take him out?



A client with mineral
interests in the country

- they needed to protect.
- Client have a name?

They aren't part of this.

They have nothing to do with
what's going on with Doug.

So it's in your best interest
to sacrifice Doug?

I have to answer up.
Let the situation resolve itself.

Come on, Ann, you got
to give us something.

We're gonna do this regardless.

Please, where is he?

Where's Doug?

There's the safe house
outside of Richmond.

He could be there, I don't know.

Thank you.



Russell, what are we walking into here?

Just a safe house.

Hopefully, Doug is okay.



There's no sign of Doug.

Well, if he was here, he didn't
go down without a fight.

Doug was definitely here.


Yeah, looks like he was interested
in this Carlos Solano.

Moy's brother.

Yeah, Moy was running
the family business

while Carlos has been in prison.

Got out last month.


So Carlos is after Doug
for k*lling his brother.

That's why they waited
a year and a half.

They didn't just send one
guy here, they sent three.

If they wanted him dead, they
would have k*lled him here.

My guess, Carlos wants to
k*ll him with his own hands.

- Great, so where'd they take Doug?
- Mm.

That is the question.

That's weird.

RUSSELL: Is that a camera?


See if it recorded anything of use.

- Nice.


Look, I think it's time we
call in law enforcement.

- [CHUCKLES] That's funny.
- Look around you, man.

We're in over our head.

Colter, Horizon is an above black
ops contractor for the government.

When they want plausible deniability.

That's right, they want
to clean up a mess,

and they want zero blowback?

It's just you and me, man.
No one's coming for us.

Hey, if you want to tap out...

I don't tap out.

I didn't think you would.

I just want you to know what
you're getting into here.

COLTER: What you got there?

It's a... Kn*fe Dad gave me.

You know, he said it was
one of the few things

a man could count on for protection
and shelter and food.


He didn't make you carry one of these?

- Uh...
- Yeah, well,

I don't even know why
I've kept it all these years.

I don't know. It's been
with me everywhere.

Yeah? That's the Kn*fe
Doug went back for?

I told him it was nothing.
But it has my name on it, so...

I get it. It's important to you.

There's not a lot of things
you can count on in life.

It's good to have you back, bro.

I never left.

- You know what I mean.
- Mm.

So, what's, uh... what's your plan, man?

What's-what's the exit plan here?


I don't have one.


- You do?
- Yeah,

I'm gonna open up a little brewery
someplace nice, you know?

Have a tasting menu,

a little farm-to-table action...
It's gonna be awesome.

You're gonna join the
food service industry?

- Yeah.
- Yeah?

You've had my beer.
It's good. Better than good.

It is. It's good.

Really, no plan? No-no
exit strategy. This is it.

This is it. You know?

Open road...

Wouldn't want to be anywhere else.

Well, strokes for folks, I suppose.



Bobby, what do you got?

All the good stuff, my friend.

Got that camera footage you wanted.

- Anything interesting?
- BOBBY: Yeah.

Three guys pulled up to the safe house

in a blue van about six hours ago.

But only two of the same dudes came out.

- Anybody with them?
- BOBBY: Yeah, they're...

dragging some dude with a
hood pulled over his head.

- They've got Doug.
- BOBBY: Not for nothing,

but these guys looked like pros.

Only got a partial plate,
but I'm thinking it belongs

to this Pacora Grove, LLC

with only a P.O. Box listed.

All right, thanks, Bobby.

- Well, well. We meet again.
- Russell.

Okay, let's focus up. They have Doug.

I know. Bobby sent me the footage.

- Need to move fast.
- Already on it.

'Course you are.

I called my friend at the FBI,

and this is what he gave me
on Carlos and Moy Solano.

I know that giving this
to you is a mistake,

but if I didn't,

I figured you would just
break in somewhere

and then you would get caught, and
then my weekend would be ruined.

I would make it up to you.

- Not necessary. Really.
- But the offer's there.

COLTER: Okay, the van that
took Doug was registered

to a Pacora Grove, LLC...

- Any mention of that in here?
- REENIE: Yeah.

Actually, the LLC belongs to
a lieutenant of Carlos Solano.

And he also happens to
own a vacation home

in the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Which is less than
three hours from here.

Have fun, boys.

Let's go.

Let's go? Whoa, whoa, whoa.
What are you doing?

Are you crazy? This Solano guy,
he's gonna have security.

You realize that, right? You can't
just go in there g*ns a-blazing.

- You're gonna need backup.

Your backup's gonna need backup.

I got you.

You and me.

Come on, we'll go get geared
up, we'll go get Doug.

We'll do it alone.

Come on, man. You good?

Let's go.

[WHISPERING]: Check this out.

Looks like they got their
own landing strip.

Yeah, that's probably why
they brought Doug here.

So Carlos can k*ll the man
who k*lled his brother.

[EXHALES] Doug could still be alive.

Let's just hope we got
here before Carlos.

We got a guard, 11 o'clock.

I got him. I'll be right back.



Well done, Russ.

- Thank you.
- Yeah.
