Patrick yells at Billie for not staying put. Billie defends herself by saying that shes trying to figure out who planted the doll for that person could lead her straight to Georgia.
Stan/Sami pokes his upper body out of the dumpster he had been hiding in and thinks about how disgusting it is to have to hide in there.

Casarez heads back to join the rest of the officers combing the grounds. Hope begins to sob as she yells and pushes Bo, blaming Shawns possible death on Bos not being there tonight.

Casarez interrupts them to say that they found a couple down the street that saw that Shawn walked away from the accident.
