Velcoro regains consciousness to find the camera's drive stolen. Bezzerides and Woodrugh visit the mansion of Vinci mayor Austin Chessani, hoping to find a link between him and Caspere, and meet his delinquent son Tony. A car that may have been carrying Caspere on the night of his murder, stolen from a film set, is picked up on traffic cameras. As Bezzerides and Velcoro question an employee of the production company who recently quit, the nearby car is set on fire by another masked individual. Woodrugh crosses paths with Miguel Glib, an old friend of his from his former job at a private security firm, but he violently rejects him when he references a sexual encounter they almost had. Stan, one of Semyon's men, is found dead, his eyes burned out like Caspere's.
