Adam thought this was a win for the Newman family.

He points out that Chance seems to have a lot of questions about it and suggested he stay in town because his family may need his support.

They bicker about the way Victor uses him and the Mustache asks what the cop said.

Adam says that Chance suggested that Locke’s death might not have happened as it looks.

Victor thinks he should be more concerned about how his sister is doing. Adam reminds him that he warned them that they pushed Locke too far.

Whatever Locke was planning, it doesn’t matter now. “You wanted Locke gone and now he’s gone. That was just a crazy coincidence, right?” Adam asks.

“You are beginning to piss me off, and that’s never a good idea,” Victor warns him. Adam finds this situation intriguing.

His father reminds him of how the company pulls together. Adam wonders why he’s feeling so threatened. Victor reminds him that he’s a Newman.
