BYE BYE BIRDIE Lindsey (Jenn Lyon) is now in the wind, and Randall (Robert Baker) is awaiting his return to Florida.
Raylan needed a moment to wallow over Lindsey's betrayal. "I kinda thought she liked me is all," he told Rachel. Ah. Lindsey likes herself, and right now, she thinks Randall is the better bet. We caught up with them at Hoppus' house, and he's quite the host. He took them to a private bar to chat and talked about how he'd had the place "Feng Shui'd" a few weeks prior by a hippie babe from over by Berea -- "the type you just want to shave down and domesticate" -- to keep all the undesirable energy outside with the (party) animals. Hoppus is a lot more enjoyable than I thought he would be. He's a flirt, which we know Randall doesn't take kindly to when it comes to Lindsey, so the boys almost came to blows. But Lindsey got the situation under control: Hoppus said he'd make a call to set up a meet in the morning with the guy who'd use the $20,000 Lindsey handed over to set Randall up as a fight manager. Obviously, Lindsey runs that show, but also from the look on her face when Randall hugged her and said together nothing could stop them, we know she doesn't see "them" being together "forever."
Over at Boyd's bar, Johnny was drinking to being back in business now that Billy is gone when Ellen May arrived to see Ava. She had nowhere else to go. Boyd spoke to her first, but said the decision about whether she could return was up to the lady of the house. "I can work, Ava. I can start at the bottom and take the ones nobody else wants," Ellen May said. I never thought about seniority at a brothel before. Ava asked how her God would feel about that. "I don't know. I just want to come home... Can I, can I, can I come home, please?" Ellen May said, with a nervous smile. Boyd believed Ellen May was telling the truth -- she simply had nowhere else to go. But Ava was still nervous that Ellen May unburdened her soul to Billy or could get the urge to come clean about Delroy now. Ava doesn't want to live waiting for the other shoe to drop, but killing Ellen May is the only other alternative she saw, and she wasn't ready for that. Boyd sent his men to find Cassie. If Ellen May told Billy about Delroy, she'd know it, too. They'd start testing Ellen May there.
Rachel and Raylan showed up Hoppus' at daylight, after the party. Did you notice the little smile on Rachel after she woke a man who immediately vomited. It's good to see her sense of humor. While Raylan floundered, Rachel made headway talking to a female fighter named Gina. When Raylan asked if he was interrupting something, Gina cracked, "You'd like that wouldn't you?" Then she told Raylan they'd wrestle for it -- if he won, she'd take them to Hoppus, and if he won, he could leave his hat on. She was joking, though I couldn't tell if we were supposed to think she had real interest in one of them. The three of them then interrupted Hoppus' three-way with a couple of ladies. "Bitches, chill," Hoppus told them when Raylan said he needed a word. (So Hoppus is a RoboCop fan.) After Raylan ID'd himself as a Marshal, Hoppus guessed he was lookin' for Randall, but wasn't inclined to help. That's when Raylan grabbed Hoppus' junk, and judging from Gina's reaction, I'm thinking she was warming to Raylan. Raylan still doesn't want to report the stolen money that he's not supposed to have but everyone in the Marshals office knows about, so he had to be patient. "I'll tell you what, any fool that didn't see that grifter Barbie comin' a mile off deserves gettin' his ass fleeced," Hoppus said. Fine. But does he have a line on these fighters Randall wants to manage? Hoppus laughed -- they're chickens. Rachel had two hours before she had to be at work, so she agreed to go with Raylan to Versailles to try to stop his money from going to the birds.
