Half Deaf Is Better Than All Dead

Lucas tries to steal a painting from the Harrisburg State Museum, but he sets off the alarm and gets trapped inside. He calls Job to help him out of the jam, and at the same moment, Carrie calls to ask Lucas to stay away from her family. Switching between the calls, Lucas accidentally reveals to Carrie that he's on a job. Lucas steals a state trooper's uniform to make his escape, but he's soon spotted and surrounded. Just when the situation looks hopeless, Carrie arrives in her family's SUV and picks him up. Once they're safe, Carrie tells Lucas that she only saved him to stay off of Mr. Rabbit's radar.

The next morning in the sheriff's office at the Cadi, Lucas finds State Senator Schumacher. Schumacher wants to know what Lucas has done to bring justice for his son. Lucas brings in Deva--much to Carrie's dismay--and she identifies Arno Webber as an associate of Hanson, the man who organized the rave and sold the tainted drugs.

Lucas and Deputy Yawners pay a visit to Arno in his neo-Nazi enclave. Arno runs, but Yawners catches up to him and breaks his nose. To avoid prison, Arno produces a severed hand from his freezer--and a video he shot of Proctor and Burton disposing of the rest of Hanson's body.

Lucas and Yawners arrest Proctor in his home. As they drive away, their car is struck by the Moodys' truck. The boys are looking to exact revenge for the sheriff's killing of their brother Marcus. As they debate whether they should kill Proctor as well, Lucas takes them out one by one, and severs one of the brother's ears. Lucas decides to let them go and resume bringing Proctor in, telling Yawners that he's "prioritizing."

Lucas later explains to Sugar that he didn't want the added scrutiny that would have come with more dead bodies. Sugar tells Lucas that whatever the next job is, he wants in. Outside the Cadi, Lucas has a visitor waiting for him: Job has come to Banshee.

Mayor Kendall stops by the Cadi to see Proctor, who has a history with the young man's father. In court, Proctor enters a plea of not guilty. Given the slew of previous failed charges brought against him, the judge decides to let Proctor out on bail. After hearing that the prosecution has an eyewitness, Proctor asks Burton to look into it.

That night, Brock keeps an eye on Arno at a motel. There's a knock on the front door, and as Brock prepares for an assault, the wall behind Arno explodes. Losing consciousness, Brock watches as Arno is carried away.
