PREVIOUSLY: Debra and Joey stopped at the Lakeview Cafe and Bar where they found Clem Haskins.
Fortunately—he didn’t recognize them.
“You folks eat here often?” Haskins asked, “I’m looking for a brunch option.”
“First time here,” Debra replied, “Your guess is as good as ours.”
“In that case, I’ll be daring and order the steak & eggs special.”
“Two more of the same, please,” Joey said, “Does that work for you?”
“Yes, it does,” Debra replied, “It saves me from trying to decide.”

Season 18—Adventure 5—HOPKINS—Episode 5—Scene 1… On Third Street in Danger Bay…
“Good afternoon, Big A,” Chris greeted Simpson with a truly wicked smile, “You’re a wanted man—again.”
“Good afternoon, Big A…”
“The name is Davenport, ma’am,” Simpson replied.
“You’ll just be coming with us,” Boomer added.
“I assume you have a signed arrest warrant?” Erik O’Hara asked.
“Why yes,” Chris replied as she presented the document, “Yes—we do.”
Big A was placed in the car—and with O’Hara following, headed back to Danger Bay.
Episode 5—Scene 2… Inside the Lakeview Café and Bar… “LOOK who’s here!” Debra exclaimed.
“I see him,” Joey replied, “He doesn’t appear to recognize us.”
“First we should call Marshal Silverthorn, and get him here,” and then “Meander over near him.”
“Why not?” Joey replied as they walked in Hank Meadows’ direction.
“Is there anything good on the menu?” Joey asked, “We’re new to town.”
“We’re new to town.”
“Just the drinks,” Meadows replied, “There’s a café a mile or so west of here—much better food there.”
“What drinks do you recommend?” Joey asked.
“They’re all good.”
Episode 5—Scene 3… Outside the Lakeview Café and Bar… Marshal Silverthorn arrested Hank Meadows, “Henry Meadows—I have a warrant for your arrest.”
“Henry Meadows—I have a warrant for your arrest.”
“On what charge?” Meadows asked.
“Several,” Silverthorn replied, as he led him to his squad, “Up to and including murder in the first degree.”
“They’ll never stick!”
“We’ll just let a jury make that decision.”
Episode 5—Scene 4… Outside Big A’s House on Third Street in Danger Bay… “Go in shooting, boys!” Frank Hopkins ordered.
“Go in shooting, boys!”
The only problem with that order—there was nobody inside.
Frank Hopkins was frustrated beyond a few choice expletives.
