It becomes transparent that this isn’t a initial time Jonah has dealt with time travelers — he final to pronounce to Rip Hunter given he has “some difference that need saying.” So, they conduct behind to a ship, and we learn that these dual share a difficult history, one that involves Rip somehow gaining tenure of Jonah’s jacket. Jonah is endangered about what happened in a bar given a male Snart killed was a member of a Stillwater Gang, a organisation of raiders who have been pillaging a town. Obviously, Rip opposes interfering, given a timeline! But Ray final that they stay and assistance given it’s a right thing to do.
“Quite a posse of saints you’re roving along with,” quips Hex to Rip.
Sara notices that Kendra has pulled divided from a group. While they were during a bar, Kendra bumped into a lady and had a memory flash. Now, she wants to find a woman, and Sara decides to tab along, mostly so she can float a horse, yet also given she’s a good friend.

This is a lot for Kendra to hoop given she’s been perplexing to make clarity of her feelings for Ray while also traffic with her returning feelings for Carter.
Meanwhile, a organisation creates skeleton to take on a Stillwater Gang. The initial step is anticipating out where they’re located, that Stein accomplishes by bribing a barkeeper for info. While during a saloon, he meets a lady whose son is failing of tuberculosis.
