Lou is temporarily taken off the Waffle Hut murder case while working a security detail for presidential candidate Ronald Reagan. Dodd and Hanzee concoct a story—in which Ed is a hitman called “The Butcher” hired by Kansas City to kill Rye—in an attempt to rile Floyd into bloodshed. She has Hanzee and accomplices ambush a group of KC men. Hanzee kills Bulo and a Kitchen brother, and sends the former’s head to Milligan. Milligan threatens Simone during their next dalliance, demanding she spy on her family for him. Meanwhile, Dodd orders his henchman Virgil to kill Ed, accompanied by Bear’s son Charlie. Peggy heeds Lou’s warning and plans to leave for California, but Ed insists on staying. Peggy nearly leaves without him, but through a change of heart, sells her car to mechanic Sonny Greer (Daniel Beirne) to get the down payment to purchase the butcher shop. Virgil and Charlie arrive in Luverne and botch their attempt to kill Ed—Virgil is killed, Charlie is hospitalized, and the butcher shop goes up in flames. Ed returns home to Peggy, now wanting to leave town with her, but she tells him she’s sold her car. As the two freeze in a moment of panic, the Police arrive on their doorstep.
Floyd takes action and Charlie tries to prove himself; Peggy and Ed disagree about what to do next; Lou finds himself sidelined during Ronald Reagan’s campaign tour.
