The Brooks escaped the witness protection program and Palmer was sent to bring back discs that they had. Palmer was seeking computer disks Ed had that contained "accounting files, memos, and endless smoking guns," exposing the company's shady accounting practices. While in search of them, it led him to kill a college student who dated Jessie. After Marshal Palmer told Clark about the evidence and reward, Clark knocked him out and tried to collect the evidence himself. After Marshal Palmer showed up, he threatened Jessie with a gun. He ended up being killed by Mr. Brooks who fired a gun to protect her.
