Marius works with Gina and Gavin, who find out the gangsters’ names are Frank and Joe. Marius has some kind of plan that involves sneaking into their hotel room, but Gina and Gavin get caught and Frank surprises Marius when he gets there. Meanwhile, Joe is at Julia’s house ready to shoot her. Marius is able to call to warn her, but at mortal risk to himself.

He tells Frank that if he hurts anyone in that family that he’ll hunt him down himself. Frank kills Gavin, makes Marius and Gina bury him, and remind Marius that he now has 48 hours to find Maggie. Marius and Marjorie cook up a scheme to get Pete out of prison.

Meanwhile, Julia is trying to figure out how to launder Dockery’s money, Taylor continues to cover for Audrey when Winslow’s case gets transferred to his precinct, Otto has trouble moving the “housepainter’s” (aka hitman) car away from Moe’s, and Audrey discovers evidence for Winslow’s death on her truck and scrambles to cover her tracks.
