In a flashback, Jimmy and Chuck are sitting beside their dying mother in the hospital, who has been in a coma for three days. While Jimmy leaves to get food for him and his brother, their mother wakes up and asks for Jimmy twice before flatlining. A clearly jealous and angered Chuck refuses to notify Jimmy. When he returns, Jimmy learns of his mother's passing, and when he asked if she had said anything, Chuck lies that she did not.
Since Ernesto, Lance and the other customers stand idly by while an unconscious Chuck lies bleeding on the ground, Jimmy rushes inside the Valliant copy shop and orders Lance to call an ambulance before turning off the photocopiers and lights. In the hospital, a conscious Chuck overhears an order for an EKG, but his protests are ignored by the staff. After Chuck is put in stable condition, Jimmy and Ernesto go in to check on him. Chuck immediately accuses Jimmy of bribing the copy store clerk, after deducing that Jimmy was there mere moments after he fell. But Ernesto clears Jimmy, claiming that he called him before they went to the store. Outside, Jimmy asks why Ernesto lied on his behalf, to which he answers that Chuck's increasingly vindictive nature was beginning to alarm him, and he didn't want to see his friend get in trouble.
Meanwhile, Nacho has brought the driver of the Regalo Helado truck to Hector, who is waiting with The Cousins at an abandoned shack ranch in the desert. Neither Nacho or Hector appear aware that Mike has been shadowing them and quietly observing the activity.
At the hospital, Chuck is given a cat scan to check for any brain damage, despite his extreme objections. Jimmy and Kim wait outside for news regarding Chuck, both of them nervous considering the unusually lengthy wait, but not before watching Jimmy's commercial on the waiting room TVs. Dr. Cruz finally appears, saying that Chuck is otherwise healthy, but has gone into a stress-induced coma as a result of the cat scan. Jimmy, angered by the medical staff's inconsideration for Chuck's health, stays by his bedside and refuses to leave.
In the desert, Mike meets up again with Lawson, and test-fires the sniper rifle he examined with him when he was planning his hit on Tuco. After satisfying himself as to the quality of the weapon, he purchases the sniper rifle and ammunition, with which to kill off Hector Salamanca and protect his family once and for all.
Chuck finally wakes up the next morning, and Jimmy immediately takes him home, the two of them appearing to have reconciled. Upon his leaving, Chuck immediately goes into his garage.
Ready to commence his hit on Hector, Mike arrrives at the shack and takes position. As Hector, Nacho and The Cousins emerge, dragging the still-tied-up driver behind them, Mike prepares himself and takes aim. Inexplicably, however, Nacho suddenly positions himself between Mike and Hector on several occasions, preventing Mike from taking a clear shot without hitting Nacho's position, directly in the line of fire. Unwilling to kill Nacho, Mike is forced to watch helplessly as the cousins shoot the driver in the head. Waiting for Hector to exit a shack where he was last seen entering, Mike then suddenly hears his own car horn blaring in the distance. He finds a branch propped inside his station wagon against the horn, and a note on the windshield with a single word: "Don't."
At his office, Jimmy receives a dire phone call from Howard regarding Chuck, prompting him to go see him. To Jimmy's shock and worry, Chuck has lined the walls and ceilings of his living room with metal sheets, claiming that the walls and ceilings did nothing to reflect the electromagnetic rays that led to the deterioration of his mind over time, believing this is what caused him to make the typo in the Mesa Verde documents.
To put Chuck's mind at ease, Jimmy admits to falsifying the information in order to revert partnership to Kim again, chastising him further for his dogged attempts to take what was rightfully hers. Chuck appears shocked at this revelation and to Jimmy confessing to a fellony, but Jimmy mentions that it made both of them feel better, adding that, "it's your word against mine." Once Jimmy leaves, Chuck unveils a cassette recorder hidden under another metal sheet on the table and stops the recording before locking the recorder in his desk, revealing that all of his actions were simply a ploy to trick Jimmy into confessing.
