Nova tries to mend fences with Ralph Angel, but he's unyielding. Later, Nova finally discovers some usable information for Charley about the mysterious gas drilling company, Old World Energy. Meanwhile, Violet arrives to ask Nova for Jimmy Dale's address, and they drive to his house together. Violet delivers items to Jimmy that represent their lost child, but just as she delivers him a verbal punch to the gut, she notices that his much younger girlfriend has also become a victim of his abuse. Elsewhere, Frances Boudreaux gives Charley a veiled threat just before Charley learns that many of the farmers are suspiciously unable to vote. Nova writes a letter to Ralph Angel asking to talk to him about their mother and Micah and Charley discuss his decision not to go to Harvard. Finally, Romero arrives and asks Charley to start over, but before they get very far into their discussion, two sheriff deputies arrive to arrest Charley for allegedly starting the fire at the Queen Sugar Mill.
