Three male subjects

identified as Prattler brothers

were seen entering Zack's warehouse

out between the counties.

Informant still on the scene, over.

10-4, is Maksville County in the dark?


Should we notify them?


Negative, Alden's got enough on his plate.

We got it.

10-26, over.

And good luck with the election tonight.

We all voted for ya.

Over and out.

They're in there, Clint;

They're in there, buddy.

I called you as soon as I knew.

I thought you'd want to know.

You did good, Scooter.

Howdy, Sloan.

Put you on the payroll

as much help as you been.

Oh, no. No.

I'm just doing my civic duty.

Sloan, cover the back.

Roger that.

Prattlers and Zack

make a dangerous concoction,

like a ketchup Popsicle.

You vote for me?

Yeah, yeah I did.

Voted twice.

Well, don't tell me that.

Hey buddy, hey buddy?

What about backup, Clint?

But he carries that

shotgun like a broom stick.

They're on their way.

Your wife would shoot

me dead if something

happened to you on

the last day at work.

I thought you voted

for me twice.

I'm not talking about

ballots now, brother.

There's some tough

hombres in there, I know.

Well, so am I.

You tell them to hold off

unless they hear trouble.

I'm gonna try to

avoid world war iii.

All right, if you say so.

Go on, find someplace safe.

You don't want me to

go in there with you?


okay, all right.

We're offering you a partnership.

And it would be in your

best interest to take it.


Hello, Clint.

Well now, I don't know if I

should save you or arrest you.

How about neither?

And then, there were three.

You choosing sides, Zack?

I always thought you

were smarter than that.

Forgive the uh-

appearance of evil, Sheriff.

But these guys are-

a little misguided.

They can keep what

they came to give.

Zack, you low-down p...


Well, then I guess

you won't mind

if I take these

boys off your hands.

You'd be doing me a favor.

You'll pay for this!

No doubt.

Well, you brothers

know the drill.

I'm sure of that.


We know the drill.

Your move, Zack.

I prefer democracy.

Now get this filth

off my property.

Search everybody...

Don't touch my head.

It'll be in your best interest

to get your mitts off me.


Hey, darlin'.

How's it going?


I guess your dreams of goin'

NASCAR are still on hold.

We won again, huh?

Congrats, babe.

Couldn't have done

it without ya.

Oh, I know that.

How about Alden?

What did Maksville County vote?


I think the two county

duo is over, Hun.

Alden here.

The results are in.


5,822 to 5,792.

I'm sorry, Sheriff.

What about Clint?

Sheriff Thorne won for his county.

Alden, it was less

than 50 votes; Contest it.

No, no, no.

We played fair and square.

Maksville County still needs you.

That's not what the numbers say.

It's over.

Listen Sheriff, I'll

get the boys together-

good night, Carl.

Hi, honey.

She's beautiful, isn't she?

My heart is broken

And I'm feeling bad

Like johnny told me

You can't put your arms

around a memory

So don't even try

Oh lord, all this


In time becomes a little


Oh lord, send in

the angels

'Cause I've thrown away

all that's mine

Now I want something back

You're late,

I ordered without you.

Why are you using the squad

car as a tow truck?

Jordan won't let me

drive her minivan.

Besides, look who's talking.

Pig farmer driving a Miata.

You know, you make fun of

my pigs, but come thanksgiving

you're gonna be begging

me for a ham.

You ain't gonna kill those pigs.

Lori was the farmer;
