Mr. Ridley is the man who owns the company; Teresa and Patrick go to ask him questions. Teresa asks when the last time he was there, turns out it was a week or two ago. Patrick asks why his office is plain, Ridley says it’s a work place and that’s all it is. Teresa keeps asking Ridley questions while Patrick listens and looks around the room.

Kim walks in and tells Cho they’re letting Ridley out on bail. Ridley is walking to his car, but Patrick intercepts him waiting there. Ridley tells Patrick that he knows that he wants to see him punished. Ridley says he didn’t kill anyone, and that maybe what has been done to these women was supposed to save much greater and smarter men.
