So Ed Romeo's gone, and outside of the stab wound Lights suffered as a result of Ed's brawl with Johnny, he may as well have not come at all, as "Cut Men" feels like it could have very easily come right after the Morales fight, or even after the episode that ended with Barry K. Word and Hal Brennan having a clandestine meeting. (Change the injury delaying the fight to Lights' eye instead of his stab wound and you could slot this episode pretty easily as is to right before the Morales fight episode.)
