MIKE’S DAUGHTER’S HOUSE
Mike is babysitting his granddaughter, the aforementioned Kalee. They’re playing Hungry Hungry Hippos! It’s freaking adorable.
Hmm…cartoon characters competing over a limited number of resources. Is this a metaphor? Or was it the only board game the production staff had on hand?
Mike gets a phone call. It’s Chow. His methylamine supplier is frantic. The DEA is calling him back in for another interrogation. Worse, they’ve taken his money. He needs to talk with Mike face to face. Mike agrees to come by in about two hours, looking annoyed to have to abandon his grandchild.
He hangs up. So does Chow. Only, over at Chow’s house, there’s also a gunman holding a silenced pistol to Chow’s head. Uh-oh, Mike…
Mike pulls up in his car outside Chow’s house, gets out, and walks up to the front door. It doesn’t look like he’s aware he’s walking into a trap.
Inside, the gunman sees Mike coming up the front walk. He puts his gun directly against the peephole and gets ready to wax Mike.
But he hears a strange thumping sound. He looks through the peep hole and sees some pink object thumping against the door. Outside, Mike has left a pink stuffed animal suspended from a motorized rotor. Mike, you ol’ devil.
Behind the gunman, Mike raises his gun, also silenced. He knows the gunman. The guy’s name is Chris. This is apparently one of the people on Lydia’s list. Mike sounds pained, like he’s been let down. He tells Chris to sit down on the couch next to Chow, who we now see has been shot. Mike surmises what’s up. When he turned down Lydia’s offer, she went to the next guy on the list, Chris, and made him the offer instead. Chris tells Mike that Lydia is offering 10 grand a head to eliminate all potential witnesses who could rat her out. So far Chris has only knocked off Chow. But for Mike, the price was actually $30 G’s.
Chris apologizes. He did it because he needed the money because the Feds took all of his—probably he was on Hank and Gomez’s shit list. Mike is understanding, but he still has to kill Chris. He shoots him through the head.
Mike leans forward, looking glum. He’s killed people before, yeah, but this is different. His carefully built roster of reliable henchmen is falling apart under the pressure. Poor guy. And surely there’s more killing to be done.
The following scenario is an utter mess.
A little girl is showing her nanny her doll. This is Lydia’s daughter. Both of them are innocents. And hiding in the shadows in the house, with black assassin’s gloves and a silenced gun, is Mike.
Lydia returns home and dotes on her daughter. As she walks back to the bedroom, Mike grabs her. Somehow, she manages to call out, telling the nanny she can go home and telling her daughter to go to bed. Mike takes Lydia to the bedroom to finish this.
