Ep 9 – “Claire Stanfield Faithfully Carries Out the Mission” / “Kurea Sutanfīrudo wa Chūjitsu no Shokumu o Suikō suru” (クレア・スタンフィールドは忠実に職務を遂行する)
In 1932, the woman in fatigues, revealed to be named Rachel, reports what she saw aboard the train to the Daily Days director. In 1931, Ladd discovers the bodies in the conductor’s car and recognizes one of them as his friend Dune, the red-head who killed the retiring conductor. Hours before, the older conductor holds the young red-headed conductor at gunpoint. However, the young conductor is able to take the gun and shoot him. Dune walks in, and the conductor, unable to obtain any information from him, decides to torture Dune. He dangles Dune below the train and drags Dune’s arm along the track, learning that the Russo and Lemures have hijacked the train. He finds that Dune killed the retiring conductor and kills him. As he covers his face in blood, he assumes the identity of the Rail Tracer. Later, Ladd plans to kill the Lemures and whomever killed Dune. At the Daily Days, the director concludes that the Rail Tracer was the conductor and that the conductor was Vino. He explains that Vino’s true identity is Claire Stanfield, adoptive brother of the Gandors. Rachel confirms that Claire made contact with the Gandor brothers. After the train arrives in New York, the brothers meet Claire outside the station. He informs them that after he finishes their job, he has to track down his potential wife, to the Gandors’ surprise. In 1930, Szilard learns that the elixir is with the Gandors and has the partially immortal Dallas retrieve it. On the Pussyfoot, Goose kidnaps Mary, gaining the upper hand over Senator Beriam. In 1930, Dallas kills several Gandor gang members and reclaims the elixir. On the Pussyfoot, Czeslaw asks Ladd to kill the passengers in the dining car. As Ladd expresses his disbelief, Claire watches from the shadows.
