- Visualize’s attorney, Julius Coles is vehemently against turning over those recordings and suspicions are raised. When Lisbon threatens to test his DNA against samples found on the victim, Coles confesses. Celia was going to admit their affair to her fiancé and the church. Coles’reputation would have been ruined. He killed her in a fit of rage.

- CBI finds Kristina Frye at the address. She is in a catatonic state. Kristina only speaks to Patrick, telling him she is really dead and he is talking to a ghost. Then, she again falls silent.
