Added DiffLines:

* SherlockScan: The Driver, after first arriving at ''El Pueblito'', deduces that Carnal is working for Caracas because people are showing Caracas respect and Caracas appears to be making Carnal's life miserable. Then he corrects himself moments later when he spots Javi in a bathrobe in a LuxuryPrisonSuite, correctly deducing now that Caracas and Carnal both work for Javi. Bear in mind this is before he even knows any of their names and the fact they're all related (he gets that fact from the Kid later).
* ShoeSlap: The Driver does this with his own shoes shotly after first arriving in ''El Pueblito''.
