"Ways to Bury a Man" is the seventh episode of the second season of Banshee and, therefore, the seventeenth episode of the series overall. It first aired on February 21, 2014. The episode was written by Doug Jung and directed by Loni Peristere.


Lucas attempts to bring down Proctor's ecstasy operation by rattling the regulars and dancers at the Savoy strip club; Carrie, Deva and Gordon unite over a family crisis; and Alex Longshadow receives a no-confidence vote at tribal council. Meanwhile, Job exhibits an explosive side.


Proctor and Rebecca silently watch as Jason's body is put through the killing floor, the former being remorseless while the latter is uncomfortable.

Lucas looks for Jason in his motel room, but only finds the boy's father's broken watch and the money that he had stolen. Sugar visits Lucas at the Cadi and tells him that Jason left The Forge with Rebecca the night before. Lucas then goes to Proctor's house to press for details. Rebecca admits to sleeping with Jason, but she and Proctor play coy about what happened afterwards; the latter behaving especially arrogant.

Infuriated with Proctor's disregard for others, Lucas decides to make taking him down his new focus. Instead of going straight after him, Sugar suggests to Lucas that there are a lot of ways to bury a man, "especially when you're wearing that badge." After conferring with Brock, Lucas and the Banshee Sheriff's Department decide to raid Proctor's Savoy gentlemen's club, long rumored to be a den of prostitution. Lucas finds a drunk Gordon in the private room of the club with two dancers. Lucas offers to let him sneak out the back, but Gordon, blaming him for the destruction of his family and accusing him of having an affair with Carrie, starts a fight with him instead. Lucas loses his temper and pummels the acting mayor until Siobhan pulls him off. Gordon stumbles to his feet and discovers he has 16 new voicemails from Deva waiting for him: Max had an asthma attack.

At the hospital, Gordon finds Carrie and Deva waiting outside Max's room. The doctors tell them that Max's condition has deteriorated, they're going to need change his treatment, and it's going to cost a lot more money. Later, a desperate Carrie tells Job she needs to do another job.

The BSD interviews the girls from the club back at the Cadi, but none of them will admit to playing a part in Proctor's prostitution ring. One of the women, Juliet, asks to speak to Lucas alone. She tells him she has some information, but she won't testify. Her former client, a white supremacist named Matt Sharp, used to run drugs for Proctor. Lucas, Brock and Emmett visit Sharp and his neo-Nazi friends, who pepper Emmett with taunts. When a fistfight breaks out, Lucas chases after Sharp and pressures him to give up the location of Proctor's ecstasy lab. When Lucas realizes there's no direct link between Proctor and the factory, he decides to take another tack. That night, Lucas, Sugar and Job break into the factory and blow it up with high grade explosives.
