Man, sometimes you just gotta have

time to reconnect, huh?

I'm glad you're back

for the holidays, bro.

Yeah, me too. Me too.

We were worried

about you over there.

You guys ever think

about going back?

Hell no. Not me.

It's crazy,

But sometimes I miss it.

You guys ever hear from Ross?

Not a peep.

Let's have a toast to James.


My little brother is back.

Now I gotta deal with this

"little brother" sh*t again.

You know, I feel a bit...



- Hi.

- Hey.

Surprised to see you here.

The last time I talked to you,

You said I was tops

on your list of regrets.

Mmmmm. Yeah, you still are.

Ooh, okay.

Don't be offended.

So how is it

being a famous journalist?

You see, I've been following

your career.

You know, it's work,

and it takes up all my time.

- Ah.

- I have a deadline tonight, actually.

- I just...

- Really?

Yeah. I just came by

to see you and say hi.

Well, I'm glad you did.

I'm glad that you're back

in one piece,

but I'm going to get going.

You sure?

I'm sure.

Take it easy.

I told you not to call me here.

Whatever, man.

Damn it.


Everything okay?

Things are good.

I need to get going.

Whoa, come on, man.

I know that look.

Talk to me. What's up?

I might be in some trouble.

What kind of trouble?

I can't go into it now.

Hey, Walt. Walt?

Walt, Walt, hold on, man.

Talk to me.

I'm gonna take Sally home.

Then I'll come back so we can talk.

I promise.

Hey, Sally.

Jim... Jimmy!


They... they killed him.

He's dead! They killed him.

He was her husband.

Sorry about what happened, miss.

I need to ask you some questions.

Is that him?


Jimmy, it's Cliff, man.

You gotta help me, man.

They're after me.

Who... Cliff, where are you?

I'm at my apartment, man.

Just listen.

We got mixed up in some sh*t

in a bad way, man.

What's goin' on?

F***! F***, they're here.

Look, I don't have it, all right?

- I told you...

- Hey, Cliff?

Cliff? Sh*t.



Okay, so who are you?

I want some answers.

I ain't tellin' you sh*t.

How about now?

I hope you can do

better than that.

Ah, sh*t!

Is that better?

God damn it,

you've done it, motherf***er.

Oh, sh*t.

Ahhh! God damn.

Who do you work for?

Suck my dick.

You ain't got to talk

to me like that, brother.

I ain't your brother.

Your brother's dead, motherf***er.


Hey, Ross, it's Jimmy.

I need you to meet me at the caf.

I'm sorry about your brother.

I can't imagine the pain.

Why Walt and Cliff?

Who'd want them dead?

Your guess is as good as mine.

I mean, anything I say

will be pure speculation.

When, um...

when you got to Cliff,

was he gone?


Hey, do you know a guy

named Bill O'Brien?


- Yeah.

- Yeah.

I haven't seen or heard a peep from him

in the last two years.

I mean, what would O'Brien

have to do with this?

Well, he sent Cliff a message.

Jimmy, I know you

and I know that crazed look in your eye.

You gotta let the cops

deal with this.

Man, they killed

my brother, Ross.

You think I'm gonna

let that slide?

No, somebody's got to pay.

And you think

that's a good idea?

You could be opening up

a whole new hornets' nest.

Hornets die.

And I don't run from fights.

You're not in the war anymore.

That's a matter of opinion.

Jimmy, listen,

you have to

be smart about this.

Hey, man, whoever did this,

if it's a war they want,

I'll bring it

to their doorstep.

You tell him

I get what I want or he gets nothing.

You heard me...

I get what I want

or he gets nothing.

Yeah, all right.

We, uh...

we have a real problem.

I like problems.

What sort of problem do we have?

It's the extermination kind.


So you know what you're doing here,

your asking me to get involved?

Oh, yeah. Precisely.

You know I'm not cheap.

No, you're not.

I know that,

And I'm willing to pay a premium

to get the job done right.

Look, we have

a very delicate matter

that's become

way too conspicuous.

I need you,

and I can't take any chances.

This have anything to do

with those two guys

that were just killed?

Tip of the iceberg.

I can look around.


Who is this?

This is Cliff's friend.

Okay, "Cliff's friend,"

why are you answering

a dead man's phone?

Why are you calling a dead man?


Hey, listen,

why don't we meet in person?

that barbecue was the first time

I'd seen Walt and Cliff in a while.

Hopefully going through Walt's stuff

will shed some light on this thing.

Just leave it right here.

Hey, hang in there, trooper.

All right?

- Right, thanks a lot.

- Yeah.

You know, I'm here for you.


How you holdin' up?

I'm just trying

to keep it together.

Listen, I'm trying to get

to the bottom of things.

Did Walter ever tell you anything?

Anything out of the ordinary?

I'm really scared, though.
