Hi there.


Thanks for finding him.

Yeah, no.

He kinda found me.

We just moved in.

Right back there.


Is that yours?


Yeah, that's mine.

I suppose that

makes us neighbors.

Alright, well.

We oughta head home.

Come on Blaze.

Hey, I'm Jonas.


I'm Casey caraway.

Where'd you go?

Just found a

buzztail in the barn.

Just walked out to

the woods a bit.


I'll deal with this.

The check valve on

the hose is leakin'.

We'll need to use

the kitchen pipes for today.

Well, mom's not

gonna like that.

Yeah well,

let's see how she likes it

when we can't

afford her rum

and smokes cause

we're too backed up.


You remember

how I showed you.

Shut off that water supply

and let the pressure out.

And Jonas.

When that snake finds

it's way back, you kill it.

Hey boy.



Sleep okay?


That coffee

I'm smelling?


Got some toast too.

There's nothin'

to put on it though.

I'll leave you

some cash.

Why don't you go into town

today and get us a few things.

How's that sound?



You out did

yourself, baby girl.

Are you nervous?

Nervous about what?

New station, new town.

Catching bad guys

is your daddy's trade.

He can

take it anywhere.


Do I look nervous?

Come here.

Come on.

Come on.

Let me

have your hand.

You feel it?

Can't get any

calmer than that.


I'm sorry

we had to move.

I'm proud of ya for

making the best of it.

I'll get us out of

here as quick as I can.

Before you know it.

Blaze, come here.

Hi ma'am.

My name's

Casey caraway.

My daddy and I just moved

into the house down the road.

Umm, I met your son

Jonas this morning.

Is he home

by any chance?

What's your

business with him?

No business.

I was just

about to head into town--

no Jonas,

he don't go to town.

So he can't

show you nothin'

that you wouldn't

see for yourself.

I guess I just mean the way

to get to know him a little--

hey cowboy.

I was

lookin' for you.

I know.

Your mom--

yeah, she--

she gets--

sad sometimes.

You gonna

be in trouble?

I don't care.

Where you goin'?

Nowhere really.

Do you wanna come?


Blaze. Come on.

Come on.

so, how's

the school here?

I start on Monday.

Oh, it's good.

But I don't

really go anymore.



And your parents

are okay with that?

I hope so,

it was their idea.

And here I thought I'd

have someone to cheat off of.

Probably doing you

a favor in that case.

And your family?

Why'd y'all

move here?

Actually my daddy grew

up the next county over.

He says they need a lot

eyes and ears

because all of the dirty

trading coming through town.

And your ma?

She okay

with the move?

My mom's dead.

When I was a baby.



Can't miss

what you never had.

that smell

alright to you?


there you are,

baby girl.

Was beginning to

worry about you a bit.

Hi daddy.

This is our

neighbor Jonas.

Mr. caraway.

So that's your old

ranch down the road is it?

Yes sir.

Not many

ranchers around here

still see worth it

to stick it out.


to admire there.

Can't be easy living.


It ain't

so bad, sir.

I hope you're hungry.

Got some steaks.


Let me take

that bag off ya.

I'll go 'round back,

fire up the grill.

I take it your

momma's got a nice dinner

waiting for

you, that right?

Yes sir.
