High Desert Season 1 Episode 5 Recap!

Denny (Matt Dillon) tries to get Peggy (Patricia Arquette) to help him with his “soul retrieval” after he gets out of jail. He wants to get to the Alejo Roadhouse to get his stash. She didn’t want to help him at first, but now she goes inside to get a lot of coins from the laundry. She starts to see how the money from the sale could help her pay the mortgage on her mother’s house.

She calls Stewart right away to tell him that the next two months of rent will be paid. Denny thinks that the rush of energy from this operation will get Peggy to do the things they used to do together before he was arrested. She thinks back to the terrible things that happened to her because he wasn’t careful. He is more interested in the good things from their past.

In any case, they get out of the house just in time before the owners come home. Before they leave, they give each other a kiss. Unfortunately, that stolen stash doesn’t pay off the way they thought it would. Back in Bruce’s (Brad Garett) office, William (Kellen Joseph) works with Bruce (Brad Garett) to fix his backup problems.

Bruce thinks he is a genius because he helps him with simple things. Peggy hides in the place where she met the kid. She gives Bruce some of the money she stole to help him with his practice. She says that more than anything else, she wants a future, which her job as a private investigator can give her. He feels sad when she helps him keep the business going.

Peggy then brings up the prize for figuring out where Tonya Glanz’s character Donatella is. She hopes that Dona’s bald bird will be able to help her. Instead, Bruce wants Peggy to find out about a man who is looking for information about his cheating partner. Peggy doesn’t agree with taking this woman’s happiness away. But in the end, she agrees to do this as part of her job.
