The FBI agents interrogate William Hastings (Matthew Illard), who was having secret meetings with Major Briggs. Drowning in tears, William recounts his final moments with the Major, telling a story about alternate dimensions. Everyone else listens to his erratic confessions, but Albert thinks William is just a “fruitcake.” All of a sudden, Diane gets a mysterious text from Evil Dale.

While Andy (Harry Goaz) and Lucy (Kimmy Robertson) argue, Deputy Chief Tommy ‘Hawk’ Hill (Michael Horse) and Sheriff Frank Truman (Robert Forster) meet the mother of Deputy Bobby Briggs (Dana Ashbrook).
