Joe tells Ryan to step out or he will kill Mike. He counts down and then fires a shot... killing Preston. Mike screams at Ryan to kill Joe, and Joe dares him to do it so he can have Claire all to himself. Joe figures that Claire is at the inn on her own and asks Ryan if he's confirmed that Claire is safe. Hiding in the shadows, Ryan calls Claire's phone. Luke answers from the house where he and Mark have taken Claire. He tells Ryan that they have Claire and tells him to bring Joe to them in return for Claire. Ryan says that it's impossible, but Luke says that he'll cut off Claire's face if he doesn't deliver Joe alive. He tells Ryan that he'll send him a text with further instructions...

Episode Quotes
Joe: I sincerely hope, Ryan, that--that my death brings you the salvation you yearn for. Wherever I may be, I'll be rooting for you.
Ryan: Thanks, Joe. I'm kind of looking forward to it.

Joe: Well, next time you come to my rescue, perhaps you could avoid nearly bloody killing me!

Joe: You should have killed me, Ryan.
Ryan: No, I'm good.
Joe: Choosing to save your own soul instead, huh? Well, I hope it goes well for you.
Ryan: I'll let you know.
Joe: Will you? Please. Visit me.
Ryan: No. You won't be seeing me anymore, Joe. I would never give you that. You're gonna die in prison, and as you wither away in there, you're gonna be fading from my memory every day a little bit more because I'll be making new memories from a new life that doesn't include you.
Joe: Well, good luck with that.
