Norah tells Lizzie and Dr. Dylan that Selena needs some time and they should do this later, they agree. The sample of the thing in Sebastien’s mouth came back and it was bread. Lizzie tells Dr. Dylan that she got some information on Norah, not only was she Selena’s friend, but she and her husband were in debt to Sebastien and it was bad, they had a week to pay or they would lose their restaurant and 40-acre farm.

The next day, Lizzie is with Dr. Dylan and tells him that Haley was hiding a record, she was arrested for assault two years ago and there is a restraining order against her, filed last week by Sebastien.

Dr. Dylan goes to see Julian, he asks if he knows about a cartel that would shave a man’s head when they kill him. Lizzie is back to see Dr. Dylan, she rushed the lab report, the bread has the same wheat as Crochino’s bread and the metal fragment is from an old Apache arrowhead, his instincts were right.

Selena goes on to say that her husband was her white knight, he saved her. Dr. Dylan and Lizzie leave Selena. Dr. Dylan tells Lizzie that they should be looking for someone who thinks that they are a savior and will protect someone they love at all cost and the only person they have met who fits that profile is Gwen, Roman’s farm hand. They question Roman and he says she is like family.
