Season Thirteen

Karma to Burn

In the second part, Kimball, still holding Kaitlyn captive, is forced on the run when he is identified as one of the kidnappers. He goes to a safehouse for McKeen's police associates and kills the ones there. As he is held at gunpoint by Brass and the other, he is unwilling to "rat" on anyone and tries to kill himself, but is shot and wounded by Brass and arrested.
