The episode introduces viewers to Calon Waltrip, the leader of the motorcycle gang and one of Tulsa’s most notorious active criminals. Dumont, the man who blows himself up at the beginning of the episode, was part of Waltrip’s crew. The opening scene implies that the two argued. However, during Stacy’s investigation, we learn that Walrip’s crew is buying a large batch of guns and guns. So Waltrip is probably planning something big.

The episode also implies that Waltrip’s gang is involved in the drug business, making him a direct competitor to Dwight. Also, Dumont probably didn’t approve of what Waltrip was planning. Therefore, Waltrip could have tricked Dumont and disclosed his whereabouts and evidence against his colleague. Therefore, Dumont is left with no choice but to commit suicide. The episode established Waltrip as a ruthless leader and made him a formidable opponent for Dwight and the ATF.
