Sitting in her living room with Elizabeth, Abigail struggles to come to grips with the knowledge that Frank Hogan could be the wanted criminal Matt Landry. Elizabeth does her best to calm her friend, when Jack arrives with news from the Mounties. Jack learned that Matt Landry was on the Mounties’ wanted list 4 years ago in connection with a bank robbery. Matt was arrested and sent to prison. After serving his time Matt Landry seemingly vanished and neither he nor Frank Hogan have any warrants for their arrest. The news is welcomed but just as Abigail breathes a sigh of relief, Frank walks in the door.
Frank tells Abigail he’s decided to come clean about his past. Matt Landry was a criminal who, after serving time in prison, decided he wanted a new name and a new life, one devoted to doing God’s work. Now living as Frank Hogan, he suspects Jesse and the Garrison gang want him to join them in a robbery. With this information Jack heads off to alert the Mounties and, sensing that Abigail and Frank need to talk in private, he offers to escort Elizabeth to school. Left alone with Abigail, Frank asks if he can still lean on her for support. With the reality of Frank’s past laid bare in front of her, Abigail is unsure if she can still stand by his side. She needs to think about it.
Meanwhile, in the saloon, Ms. Ramsey sits across the table from Mr. Logan, a representative with her late husband’s insurance company. The two discuss the terms of Mr. Ramsey’s life insurance policy, all of which seem to be in order. As Mr. Logan packs up his leather valise, he informs Ms. Ramsey that she can expect a benefit check within 6-8 months, barring any complications. The news is a terrible shock to Ms. Ramsey, who is in desperate need of the money. Mr. Logan then tells her that he can offer her a lesser settlement in cash. The amount she would receive is 1/5 the total and, while insulting, Ms. Ramsey is in a difficult financial situation. While tempted, she pulls back, and tells Mr. Logan that she has to think about it.
Outside the saloon Jack and Bill prepare to go out on patrol. Only now does Jack tell Bill that Frank was a member of the Garrison Gang. A friend of Bill’s was killed by the gang 10 years before and he has been looking to bring the gang to justice ever since. Now, with a member of the gang in his sights, Bill is more determined than ever to bring the Garrison gang to justice. He asks Jack to do him a favor and find Mary Benson, the widow of his murdered friend. As Bill runs off to talk with Frank, Jack stops to remind him that Frank wasn’t in the gang when his friend was killed and he isn’t in the gang now.
