Moral of the story: Don't vouch for degenerate gamblers. It's kinda said if you think about it. Dude was just doing his job.
Bill is likely to be in a more difficult spot than before, now that Jack is dead. The debt is still in effect. It's to the Fung Hai, not Jack. His death won't mean anything. If anything, it puts Bill in a much more precarious position. Now, the Fung Hai themselves will probably get involved, even though that's what Jack was for when it came to people who weren't Chinese.
And I think Lee will be targeted by them to send a message to Bill and to tell him that he should pay his debt or otherwise, they'll keep going after people close to him. I remember that Zing goes after Lee and really beats him up, or had other Fung Hai members that he brought with him to do it. But I don't remember which episode it was. It may be the next episode, but this episode is the sixth out of ten episodes; so, it may happen after the next episode.
Speaking of Lee, he's going to have it rough pretty soon. He will get beaten up by the Fung Hai, and there was also that guy he saw inside the police station. I believe he's a bounty hunter who's after Lee and has been after him all the way from Georgia for something related to why Lee came all the way to San Francisco and the woman Lee dreamed about being in bed with him two episodes ago, who looked to be a black woman. And he was able to find him because of the picture that was taken of the Chinatown squad. That's why Lee didn't like his photo being taken in the episode before last. Well, all of that is based on the assumption that I remember it correctly.
When Li Yong gave something to the Fung Hai hatchetman, it looked to be a piece of paper, not dynamite. And it looked like the person who threw the dynamite was dressed like Long Zii hatchetmen. Mai Ling must've orchestrated those aspects to play out the way they did. Her plan was likely to use the Fung Hai as a catalyst to start a war, specifically between the Fung Hai themselves and the Hop Wei. To do that, she made sure some of the Hop Wei would see the Fung Hai hatchetmen; then, to have one of the Long Zii hatchetmen to throw the dynamite. She was probably hoping that they would take each other out so the Long Zii can swoop in and take over the opium business. Furthermore, that would appease Buckley's desires from her by starting a war and causing there to be blood in the streets, and all without the Long Zii's involvement. That plan didn't do the way it was supposed to, clearly. Now, in the next episode or two, Father Jun will likely send someone to kill Long Zii, or maybe Mai Ling. I remember that Bolo was sent to kill her, which led to more spoiler-ish, so I'll refrain from mentioning it.
I wonder if Chao's monologue about Nian, the demon of the mountain, was symbolic. Jack talked about a white mountain of bones two episodes ago, and he was with Bill's child when Bill came home after the parade, the same day in which Chao mentioned that Nian comes down from his cave. I'm not saying that Jack represented Nian, just that there may have been some sort of correlation there; Zing could represent Nian, and the mountain in which there's a cave that Nian lives in could represent the white mountain of bones. But I'm probably looking too much into it.
For an episode following an episode like the previous one, an episode that barely had anything to do with the main story and was almost completely self-contained, this episode didn't have as much flair to it as I think it should've. It dropped us right into the swing of things without showing us what happened when Young Jun and Ah Sahm returned from Nevada with the gold. The purpose of the gold will still be revealed, I think. But the point is that this episode not only didn't begin with Young Jun and Ah Sahm's return, and by extension, the explanation of why Father Jun wanted the gold, nor was the explanation revealed later on in the episode, but it also didn't have the right feeling of appropriateness to be the episode that followed such an episode like the previous one.
