The picture is not the greatest thing but it is pretty great in and of itself. (The Greatest Thing In The World, EVER!)
The episode began with this really cool sort of drum solo, a low driving beat kind of thing while these two hit men (I think they were hit men, I haven't finished the episode yet, but they're definitely bad guys of some kind) drove along.
Today, I tried to find out what the song was, and couldn't. I finally got to a Reddit thread (going on Reddit always makes me feel sort of skeevy, like I'm trying to hang out with 14-year-olds or about to falsely accuse someone of being the Boston Bomber), where they linked to a story about the guy who wrote the drum solo; that story said that drum solo was part of the score and not released yet, but in the comments

and found the song:
And I listened to it about 14 times yesterday and put it on the list of songs I might buy using the gift card Sweetie got me as part of my anniversary present; the gift card is to iTunes and I have been charged with making a road trip playlist because we are going on a road trip to Milwaukee which is the other part of my anniversary present.
(Did I mention yesterday was my anniversary? It is. That's also a Greatest Thing In The World, EVER!)
