However, another ‘Enos’ calls out to him before a third and a fourth. Scanlon looks between them all before Daisy shoves him off and runs, kicking away his gun. He goes to get it, but Jesse shoots it. He runs and Enos chases him. He tries to hit Enos with a branch and throw dirt in Enos eyes. However, Enos catches him and knocks him out before arresting him. Because of his hat just makes him lucky.

He is returned to the LAPD.
