Chapter Eight: Know Your Truth
Written by: Alec Berg and Bill Hader
Directed by: Alec Berg
Barry surprises Fuches at his suite, takes the money from the suitcase and punches Fuches before leaving. A jilted Fuches then goes to Pazar’s house and tells them Barry is alive. Vacha’s twin, Ruslan, revs up a buzz saw and prepares to kill Fuches.
Noho Hank tells Barry they are going to kill Fuches and pleads with him to leave town. Instead, Barry saves Fuches, shooting Pazar and the remaining goons. He drives Fuches to the airport and tells him he’s done killing.
The LAPD chief gives a press conference, noting the Chechens and Bolivians were baited into war by Taylor and his partner, Ryan Madison. Noho Hank and Cristobal, now collaborating, watch the press conference from the stash house. Cousineau watches from the TV section of Costco and calls Moss.
When Barry tells Sally he’s quitting the class, she opens up to him about her prior abusive marriage. She tells him he has real talent and suggests they do the play, The Front Page.
Two months months later, Sally and Barry snuggle in a hammock at Cousineau’s lake house. Moss arrives, and after Cousineau tells the story of Barry’s parking lot monologue, she starts to put the pieces together. Once everyone is asleep, she goes to the end of the dock and searches “Barry Block” on Facebook and Barry approaches. He comes clean about his past and explains how his life has changed.
Sally stirs in her sleep at the sound of gunshots. Barry washes his hands and gets back in bed.
