Local prisoners working in a field found a man’s shoe with its’ foot still in it. The Ferg & Walt look at that shoe & Walt says that a small animal may have dragged it to that fence near the road. Both of them & the prisoners search for a body that belongs to the foot. Sean asked Vic to resign & she later calls him from work. She found that someone got onto her laptop & opened her email to Walt about Branch.
The Ferg finds the dead body of George Linder who has a wife Dawn & daughter Cassie. Back at the office, Vic finally knows who broke into her laptop & it was Branch. They argue over it & Branch thinks she will try to get him off the job. He doesn’t look good because he has been obsessing over David Ridges.

Cady goes to Branch at the office & asks him for money to help with fees for Henry Standing Bear’s murder case. Branch asks her in return why she doesn’t just ask for his help in solving Henry’s case.
Branch goes to Denver with Cady to find out information on Miller Beck who killed Walt’s wife Martha. A woman in the bar Miller had frequented took Branch’s photo. Later, he gets a text message from that woman & shows a picture of David Ridges standing right behind him. The photo disappears as Branch frantically searches for David in the bar.
