call. Julia drags Jack back upstairs to the bedroom.
Simon pays a visit to Lily and Holden trying to obtain a key to Jack's house.
Simon wants to investigate the house for clues to Jack's disappearance. Holden
and Lily tell Simon they do not have a key, but Mitzi does. Lily phones Mitzi
and makes arrangements for Mitzi to meet Simon at Jack's house to investigate.
While visiting Lily and Holden, Holden receives a call from Jack. The call is
missed and Holden just explains it off as poor reception. They try calling Jack
back but there is no answer.
Simon and Mitzi arrive at Jack's. Julia rushes Jack into the closet and holds a
gun to him. She warns Jack that she will shoot Mitzi and Simon if she is forced
too. Mitzi reaches the bedroom, but doesn't see anything. Just before she
reaches the closet, Simon asks her if she is ready to go. They leave; noticing
that the thermostat was raised and that the flowers Mitzi said are Jack's
favorites were in the garbage.

of James to continue but only under strict circumstances. After questioning
James is allowed to go free, while Barbara is asked to return the next day for
new charges to be placed upon her.

room, livid at James and desperate for understanding. While standing at the
station, Lily almost passes out. She senses it is Rose who is in trouble and
feels she needs to get her help immediately.

James Stenbeck. James offers to tell Paul where Rose is. James tells Paul he
will contact him again to inform him where and when they will meet.
