Season 1, Episode 10 | August 12th, 2012
A shiny teapot hums on the stove. Sheriff Walt Longmire is asleep on his couch, fully dressed. The teapot lets out a shrill whistle and he opens his eyes to see Lizzie Ambrose poke her perky blonde head out of the kitchen. Even groggy she is radiant in the morning light. Lizzie inquires if he'd like some tea. She is holding the wooden tea box Walt uses to store his late wife's ashes. Walt leaps off the couch shouting, "No tea! Coffee!" He grabs the tea box and carefully places it back on the shelf, urging Lizzie to trust him; she doesn't want that tea. Lizzie laughs nervously. What a nut. Okay, sure, they'll have coffee. She watches Walt fumble with his French press: was it a bad idea for her to stay over last night? It feels weird. Like high school, but without the sex. Does Walt want her to leave? Walt shakes his head no. Does she want to go? With a hopeful smile, Lizzie says no. They're both adults, right? They share a laugh, but are immediately interrupted by the sound of tires on the gravel outside. Walt hurries to the door.
