Next A Good Death is Hard to Find


As Walt completes his ceremony, Cady regains consciousness in the hospital. Walt and Vic investigate the death of game warden Connor Redding, found stabbed to death near a decapitated and eviscerated elk corpse. Omar studies the elk and suggests it was harvested to make velvetine, which is used from medicinal purposes. At first, a global poaching ring is suspected, but Walt discovers local taxidermist Lee Rosky killed Connor, who caught Lee poaching. Rosky's wife was in the last stages of cancer and her traditional medicines were not helping. Meanwhile, after being reassured by Henry that Walt does not hold grudges, Branch decides not to quit his job. He continues looking over the car that Cady was injured while fixing its flat tire. He finds a fingerprint near the tire. The puncture was deliberately done by someone employed by Jacob Nighthorse, who, when confronted with this information, tells Branch that he needs to let go of the past and look to the future.
