  • The Salvadorians were buying heavy firepower guns for reasons unknown.
  • The Armenian mafia boss, Kesakhian, is on his death bed with his daughter trying run things, under the impression that her father is running a legitimate business. She aligns herself with Shane, preparing for Rezian's takeover when he learns about her father.


  • Vic learns from Hiatt that he's still on his way out.
  • Shane reveals to Ronnie about Terry Crowley. Ronnie indicates to Vic that he either figured it out or at least suspected, but wishes he had told him so he could have better helped him.
