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.

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, good luck with that.
