Patrick says that they received a letter from the killer and that he’s going to kill again, Patrick shows the letter to them. Patrick doesn’t believe that Jon killed his wife, Christie his daughter is beckoned by Patrick to come over. Patrick believes the letter wasn’t written by the killer, but by someone who knows who the killer is.

Jon says that Wes Baxter is the murderer because he was always stalking her, Patrick asks Christie about Wes and her opinion on him; she says he didn’t kill mom. Christie gets upset with her father because he’s being a jerk, Megan her step mom tries to scold her for being rude; but it backs fire when Christie calls her a witch.

Cho and Kim are walking up to a house, Cho rings the door bell and sees two people doing yoga; knowing they’re out back. Cho and Kim go out to the back instead, they’re trying to talk to a woman named Monica. She was Gretta’s business partner, Monica says that her and Greta were friends in college and both love interior design. Their firm started to take off once she died, but it hasn’t been the same without her. Kim asks if Greta expressed any fears or anything like that, turns out Greta had an affair with someone because she felt real love from that person. Teresa is trying to hear Cho, but Patrick has the radio to loud. He turns it down when Teresa asks, Patrick and Teresa find out that Greta had an affair. They are now talking to Wes Baxter, Patrick says that Wes wasn’t behind the murder. Teresa says that he’s a suspect because he was stalking her, turns out that Wes wasn’t spying on her, but on Christie. Wes admits to it, that he was watching Christie because he was in love with her and was a stupid kid. Wes says it was because of the three age year gap between them that made it weird, Patrick asks him about the code, but Wes doesn’t know anything about it. Patrick and Teresa get back into the car and leave, Patrick wants to go to the beach and take a little walk since their here. Patrick and Teresa end up going to the beach, they’re walking along the beach trying to solve the code sine Teresa thought they were wasting time. Teresa finds out that the code follows the dewy decimal system, they find out the code stands for Bird Blue Hotel. There is a Blue Bird lodge. Teresa ends up cracking the case herself, Patrick says that if she called to go back to D.C. Abbot could send her to D.C. instantly; but Teresa doesn’t want to go now that they’ve got a lead with the case.
Patrick and Teresa arrive at Blue Bird, they enter and Patrick gets a suite for them; he then tells the woman behind the desk that if someone calls for Greta that they should be sent to Patrick’s room without being told he’s there and to send them there. Teresa enters her suite and finds a dress on her bed, she calls Patrick and tells him it’s too much. Patrick says its fine since it’ll be there last case, he tells her he’ll see her at dinner and hangs up. Patrick gets a call right away and from Cho and Abbot they’re at the lobby.
