In "Hole in the Wall", Raylan finds her in his motel room, and has a romantic encounter with her before hiding his stash of money in his drawer.
In "Where's Waldo?", Raylan and Lindsey are seen making love in Raylan's bed. She wants to go leave to sign for the beer delivers, but Raylan tells her to stay in bed while he takes care of it for her. Later on that night, her and Raylan are seen kissing when the same burly man (Randall) Raylan encountered that morning comes back in. Raylan says that they are definitely closed, and the man says that he is only there to speak to Lindsey, his wife. This revelation leaves Raylan in shock.
In "Truth and Consequences", Raylan and Lindsey discuss the arrival of Randall. Lindsey confides in Raylan that while her and Randall were married, they developed a scam where Lindsey would get close to a male, find out what he has valuable enough to steal, and that Randall would make his move and pocket the merchandise. However, Randall got too jealous of the attention Lindsey got, causing him to almost beat a man to death and get sent to prison. She reassured Raylan that she has reformed, and they continue making love. Later on that night, Raylan finds Lindsey missing and his room trashed, with his money also gone from the Jody Adair task.
In "This Bird Has Flown", Randall and Lindsey visit Joe, and hand him the money stolen from Raylan to pay for Randall's cock-fighting management.

Lindsey attempts to alert Raylan, but hangs up when she sees Randall come back out. While the two are parked out by a farm, Raylan comes up armed with a shotgun full of bean bag rounds. He shoots Randall in the stomach, sending him to the ground. While Raylan talks with Lindsey, Randall tackles him to the ground and a scuffle ensues. Raylan gets the upper hand, but is shot by Lindsey. She then shoots Randall three times before knocking him out by the butt of the shotgun. Lindsey tells Raylan that his money is in the back of the van, but Raylan finds only chickens instead.
