Chris tells his mom that Alison and Susan just got into an argument over Rick and Susan told Alison to move out. Kim says Alison is too young to be on her own. Chris says that Alison was hoping she could move in with her (Kim). Kim rolls her eyes. Chris says he is only helping a friend out. Kim asks Chris if Alison is more than a friend. Chris laughs.

Alison says she must go back to work and hurries off. Alison sees Chris and asks him if his mom agreed to let her move in. Chris says her mom didn’t think it was a wise idea.

Emily and Hal are outside the Wagon Wheel motel room door that was occupied by Jeffrey Starr. Inside this room Rick is attempting to hide the evidence. Rick quickly escapes through another door.

Emily asks Hal to put out a missing report on Jeffrey. Hal says it is too early for this. Emily tells Hal that she feels that Jeffrey may have been writing a story on Rick and when they met, Rick got angry and murdered him. Just then they get a phone message from Rick. On this message Rick tells Jeffrey that he is sorry he missed his call, but says he can call him on his cell phone or at the hospital. Emily finds Jeffrey’s memory card on the floor, which may have access to his computer hard drive. Emily takes this card with her. Hal warns Emily that he is a police officer and that they broke into this room without a warrant. Emily says that he can look the other way, because she will not allow any harm to come to her mom or sister. Back at the police station, Emily and Hal puts this card into a computer to look for clues. Susan arrives demanding to know what Emily said to Alison about Rick. Emily says that Rick acted like a loose cannon during their wedding so she is worried. Rick arrives and stands outside this door. Rick obviously hears Emily and Susan loudly arguing.
