♪ What the hell just happened? It's the cop Darnell's been hooking up with.
Don't worry.
She's handcuffed, and I took her phone.
Come on.
What are you doing? W Maybe we can use her.
Use her how? To help us find Jennifer Walker's brother.
Why in the world would she help us find Jennifer Walker's brother? She's smart.
She's gonna realize that I'm not actually gonna use that gun.
Maybe we can blackmail her or something.
Blackmail? Come on.
You said she's the reason why you didn't get arrested.
Didn't she tip Darnell off that the cops were outside your apartment? Not on purpose.
Apparently, D overheard her talking with her boss.
Okay, but, still, pretty sure she could get fired for that.
Trey? We're so close.
We're so close.
I can feel it.
I know that that brother's gonna lead me to Jess.
I just know it.
I know it.
And none of those rehab places will tell us anything.
(EXHALES) You're the only person that doesn't think I'm crazy.
I need you.
I need you.
And we need her.
Even if I am gonna entertain this idea for, like, a second, which I'm not Okay, clearly, you are.
how would we be able to prove that Darnell tipped her off? You said you have her phone.
Right? Check her texts.
It's locked.
Know what? Stay here.
I'll be right back.
(HANDCUFFS RATTLING) Listen to me, if you surrender right now, it will be a lot easier for everyone.
I know.
You're right.
Hey! Give me my phone! Give it to me! Thank you.
(MUTTERS): You're so screwed.
Anything? Oh, my God.
What? She says, "Please don't do this.
"You weren't supposed to hear that call.
I could lose my job.
" He says, "No one will know it was you.
But like I said, "I gotta protect Trey.
"He didn't do this.
I'm so sorry.
" You got to be kidding me.
(DOOR OPENS) - (SIGHS) - Let me go right now.
Yeah, we can't do that.
You seriously gonna kill me? Like you killed Nia? Look, we just need your help.
I'm trying to find my friend Jess.
Okay? And I think someone mistook her for this girl that went missing Jennifer Walker.
We know a lot more than you think.
(EXHALES) Well, who do you think wanted Jennifer dead? Because I happen to think her brother had something to do with it.
And why's that? He was supposed to pick her up on the day she went missing, and no one knows why he never showed.
No one's heard from him in years.
And then, a few months ago, he sold her identity.
- Wait, her brother sold her identity? - Yeah.
And we need you to help us find him, because if he was the one that was after Jennifer, he's got to be the one that's after my friend.
(SCOFFS) Why would I do that for you? MURPHY: Well, you said it yourself.
You'd be fired if anyone found out what you did.
And if you don't cooperate, I'll send screenshots of your texts with Darnell to everyone in your contact list with a Chicago PD email address.
So if you want to keep your job just do what we say.
I mean, it's pretty simple.
Don't be that stupid, Murphy.
I don't really have anything left to lose.
And it seems like you have a lot to lose.
(INHALES) What do you think? (EXHALES) Worst person in the world.
What'd you say? The worst person in the world.
That's what Josh said about you.
Oh, yeah? Am I the worst person in the world for trying to find my best friend? Who would have never gone missing had she not been involved in a murder.
Come on, guys.
We got to get out of here.
Darnell ran to go grab some food.
He's gonna be back any minute.
Where are we gonna go? We'll go to her place.
(KEYS JANGLING) - We can't go to her place.
- Oh, my God.
That's the first place they'll look if anyone realizes she's missing.
We can't go there.
What's this? Cygnus Warehousing? I used to work there.
Is anyone there at night? And if you lie, we will send those screenshots.
It's empty from 10:00 p.
to 5:00 a.
TREY: We can head there now.
♪ (TRAIN HORN BLOWS) (BEEPS) (CREAKING) ♪ (BEEPS) (CREAKING) Thanks for your badge.
Can we just get this over with? Hey.
(EXHALES) There it is.
(KEYS JANGLING) (CHUCKLES SOFTLY) That's one way of saying you want to have sex all night.
(CHUCKLES SOFTLY) (BEEPS) (CREAKING) - (CLICKING) - Like I said, I'm not sure what it is you want me to do.
I can't subpoena the patient list of every rehab place - in Chicago.
- You're a cop.
I'm literally asking you to find one person.
Is that such an insane ask? I wouldn't call this asking.
If you were just doing your job.
If you were just doing your job, - how would you find him? - (CHUCKLES) If I were doing my job, I wouldn't be handcuffed to a desk in an empty warehouse.
Well, this is what it is.
I would narrow down the list of rehab facilities based on his finances, then get a court order.
Well, I don't think he has money.
Well, okay, then we look into state-funded facilities.
That's a start.
Thank you.
(COMPUTER CHIMES, WHIRS) I'll see if this works.
SARAH: Yeah.
Thank you so much.
I-I really appreciate you working so late.
I got the court order.
I'll start calling rehab facilities.
I'm looking for a patient.
A possible patient.
His name is Patrick Walker.
Maybe he checked in a few hours ago, days ago, weeks.
Maybe even months.
I'm not sure.
Yeah, sure, I-I got no problem holding.
SARAH: You've reached Sarah Barnes.
Leave a message.
- (BEEPS) - Hey.
Uh, just call me back, text me.
Let me know you're all right, all right? I got a weird feeling.
Yeah, got it.
H-Have a good night.
That's the one.
Patrick Walker checked in two months ago.
But we both know they're not just gonna let us waltz in there and talk to him.
So you're coming with.
Can you just lay out your theory for me here, Murphy? - What? - You asked me to do my job, right? Be a cop? Sure, it's possible that someone mistook Jess for this Jennifer Walker person.
But her own brother? You honestly think that her brother snuck out of that facility, kidnapped Jess, thinking it was his sister, and never recognized her? Look, it's obvious what you're doing.
I used to work in missing persons.
I have seen countless people grasping at straws because they didn't want to deal with the truth.
- No.
Don't say that.
- And and the truth is - that Jess is dead.
- Shut up.
Shut up.
- I'm sorry.
I know it's horrible.
- Shut up! Shut up! You don't know that! You don't know anything! You don't know that.
So shut up.
TREY: Okay.
Let's just go to this place.
Hey, Sarah, it's Darnell.
We're here.
All right, I'm gonna let Pretzel pee before we go in.
Be right back.
Come on, buddy.
(SIGHS) Can I ask you something? Sure.
Why are you doing this? For a couple weeks of sex? 'Cause I guarantee that's all you're getting.
Look, I know you're wanted in this triple homicide.
Darnell says you didn't do it, and I don't think he'd lie to me.
If your cell phone ends up being the only evidence against you, - there's no way that'll hold up.
- What's your point? My point is that you've just added kidnapping a police officer to that list.
Look at what Darnell did for you, and this is how you repay him? Well, what's done is done.
- Actually, if you just, uh - (BANGING ON DOOR) Let's go! All right.
I'm gonna uncuff you.
Don't try anything.
I'm sorry, but I'm not gonna talk to you guys.
We just want to ask you a couple of questions about My sister? No.
No, I'm not doing this.
Patrick, we're not accusing you of anything.
We just want to see if we can dig up anything that the police missed back then.
Well, then you can listen to my 47-hour interrogation the week she went missing.
I told the cops everything they needed to know, okay? An interrogation from back then wouldn't explain why you sold your sister's identity three months ago.
Hmm? Hmm? Because I'm a drug addict.
I needed money.
So I sold my missing sister's identity for a dime bag of heroin.
Yeah? - Hmm.
- Yeah.
SARAH: Who did you sell her identity to? I don't remember.
Some lady.
I was on a four-day bender, so I don't really remember much.
Look, look, talking about this stuff isn't great for me, so I'm just gonna go back to my room if you if you don't mind.
Thank you.
Hang on.
You wait a second.
I told you, I already did this! I'm not doing it again! I don't believe a word you say.
I can't express how little I care.
Great job in there, by the way.
Thanks for scaring off our prime suspect.
Prime suspect? - Poor guy is just an addict.
- I'm telling you, he had something to do with this.
- (SARAH SCOFFS) - Okay, he was lying.
Could hear it in his voice.
He's lying! Been doing this for a long time, Murphy.
He wasn't lying.
Um he seemed like he was telling the truth.
No, he was not.
(LAUGHING): No, you guys are both wrong.
You guys are both wrong.
He's-he's he's hiding something, okay? I bet my life on it.
Well, I did what you asked.
He said he was interrogated for two days back then.
Let's listen to it, see if I'm right.
If you were right, they would have never let him go.
(LAUGHS) Yeah, sure.
Because the cops in your department are really top notch.
(STAMMERING): We're not even arguing about this, okay? I don't Just shut up.
You-you have no say here.
SARAH: Are you seriously thinking of taking me to the police station? You're that dumb? MURPHY: I have gotten closer to solving this case in three days than the police have in ten years.
(LAUGHING): Okay, you're not close to solving anything, Murphy.
You're delusional.
I've been called that before, and yet, I've been right every single time, so don't underestimate me.
(SNIFFLES) Let's go, Trey.
(SIGHS) What are you doing? Let's go.
(ENGINE STARTS) ♪ MURPHY: We'll be able to hear everything.
Okay? If you tell anyone what's going on, you turn off the phone or mute or anything, we'll send those texts.
You remember what they are, or did you want us to just refresh your memory real quick? I got it.
TREY: Put this in your pocket.
MURPHY: Just go inside, get the evidence, come back outside.
Don't talk to anyone.
- Sarah? - Hey.
What are you what are you doing here? JOSH: It's the middle of the night.
What's going on? SARAH: Oh, I, um I couldn't sleep.
I just, uh I came to grab some files to get some work done.
You? Well, I went home and started watching Jeopardy!, and I I was like, "How can I be watching a six-year-old episode of Jeopardy! when Murphy's still out there?" Yeah, I know.
I get it.
No, you don't get it.
No, you don't get it.
I literally had her in that interrogation room.
I-I had her in her apartment.
I literally had her in my my bed, right beside me, and I let her get away each and every time.
This is pointless.
I'm gonna go brew up some coffee and sober up.
- No.
Wait a second.
- (SCOFFS) - Yeah? - Look, can I ask you? What is it about her? JOSH: What do you mean? SARAH: I mean Murphy.
You're obviously a smart guy.
You have been after Nia Bailey for years, but you let this girl get in your way.
Well, thank you.
Just (LAUGHS) continue to kick me while I'm down, please.
SARAH: Come on.
I'm serious.
How did she do it? I don't know, honestly.
I think about it literally all the time How she just made me she just made me so stupid.
You know, and she-she has this (SIGHS) Well, she's just such a dick, you know? (SIGHS) She hates everyone.
So, you know, when she chooses you, it makes you feel really special.
SARAH: But you think it was all just manipulation? (JOSH SCOFFS) JOSH: Every word.
SARAH: I'm sorry.
Anyway, look, I'm gonna finish up here.
No use crying about the past.
I'm gonna head home, too.
(CLEARS THROAT) Get some sleep.
I wish I could.
(CLEARS THROAT) You do see what she's trying to do, though, right? She's trying to turn you against me.
She's trying to paint me as some sort of manipulative No, I know.
I'm not an idiot.
I do like you, though.
You know that.
I'm Yeah.
WOMAN: Detective Barnes, working late? SARAH: Yeah, something like that.
Can I get the evidence box for case number 43 8321? Jennifer Walker.
Yeah, we heard.
(WHISPERS): Bitch.
(ENGINE STARTS) Can you guys hurry up? There's a lot of stuff in here.
Found it.
Oh, he wasn't kidding.
This is long.
MILLER: Can you state your name for the record, please.
(CLEARS THROAT) Patrick Walker.
Look, I have, uh, no idea where my sister is.
Can I see my mom, please? MILLER: Yeah, in a bit.
We're just gonna ask you a couple questions.
You need anything? You comfortable? You want some water? You said this thing was, like, two days long.
We don't have time to sit here and listen to the whole thing.
SARAH: Hang on.
Transcript's notated.
We usually mark important points up to find later.
47 hours, 23 minutes.
(SIGHS) Please.
Please, just-just let me talk to my mom.
Oh, for the last time, you can see your mom once you tell us why you were late picking up your sister from swim practice on Saturday.
I told you.
I don't remember.
You don't remember where you were three frickin' days ago?! - PATRICK: I-I'm sorry.
- MILLER: For killing your sister? PATRICK: No! No! I-I didn't! I-I w I would never.
I just want my mom.
The second you tell me the truth you can see her.
Okay? (SIGHS) I was taking the SATs.
Excuse me? I was taking the SATs.
PATRICK: For this guy at school.
I took the test for him.
It's how I've been saving up money for Northwestern.
They gave me a scholarship, but it'll only pay for half.
And these rich kids pay me, like, $1,000 to do it for them.
I know it's wrong, but I just really needed the money.
And this is why you were late picking up your sister? Yeah.
I usually finish the last section, like, 20 minutes early, so I thought I'd have enough time.
But there was this one word problem.
I couldn't figure it out.
So I tried it again.
And again and again and again and I just figured Jenny would wait for me, you know? (CRYING) I (SNIFFLES) I had a decimal in the wrong place.
That's what was wrong.
A decimal.
And because of that I didn't get to her in time.
And now (CRYING) Thank you, Patrick.
Turn it off.
Let's check his story.
There you go.
You figured out his big secret, Murphy.
No, no.
There's got to be something else.
Come on.
There isn't.
They reported the SAT fraud and Northwestern rescinded his acceptance.
I'm guessing that's when his drug addiction started.
SARAH: He probably blames himself for everything.
- I bet his mom does, too.
- No, but, like, that's (SIGHS) That's it? Yeah.
MURPHY: That's (SIGHS) Uh, where's the-the the box? - What? - The-the evidence box.
I told you, there's nothing in there.
This case is a dead end.
Can you please just let me go now? No! I'm keeping you until you help me find my friend.
There's got to be something on someone.
There's got to be something a cop missed.
(PAPERS RUSTLING) Well, I have to pee.
I'm sure Trey has to escort me, so What are you doing? I don't have to go to the bathroom.
Look, I know that you think what Murphy's doing is crazy, because it is.
Look, I'm just trying to help her find her friend.
I know what it's like to lose someone.
Yeah, but come on.
What are you gonna do Keep chasing dumb clue after dumb clue, just to what? (CHUCKLES SOFTLY) Make her happy? No one is ever gonna make that girl happy.
Including you.
I know you heard Josh.
She makes men stupid.
Look at you.
You're being an idiot right now.
I know that she's making you think that you're different, that you're special, that you know.
But you're not special, you're just like the rest of them.
She uses people.
That's what she does.
Look at what she made you do to Darnell.
Look, if you delete the texts and let me walk, I will not tell anyone what happened here tonight.
Let's just go back in there.
- Hmm? - (SCOFFS) Let's go.
Don't touch me.
- (PLASTIC CRINKLING) - (SCANNER BEEPS) What are these? Uh, looks like a bracelet and a bunch of beads to make a bracelet.
Are they the same? Like, are the-are the loose beads the same as the beads on the bracelet? - Yeah.
- MURPHY: They are? (LAUGHS) Oh, my God.
Yeah, I know exactly where we need to go next.
Like, now.
- Right now.
- 'Cause of a bunch of beads? Yes, because of a bunch of beads.
Just trust me on this.
All right, uh I'll get all this back in the box and meet you in the car.
You know where it is? MURPHY: Yeah, thank you.
Yeah, okay.
Come on, Pretzel.
Come on.
Find outside.
(SIGHS) Good boy.
(DOOR CLOSING) All right, fine.
I'll take it That deal you offered me.
(PHONE CAMERA CLICKS) What are you doing? Sending myself a screenshot.
If in one hour, the cops aren't after us, I'll delete it.
What? I'm just supposed to trust you now? Yeah.
No cops.
And you don't come after me.
All right.
(DOOR CLOSES) Don't underestimate me.
MURPHY: Okay, we're going to 29 Sumner Avenue in South Bend.
That's, uh, Jennifer's best friend's house.
And I know you guys think these are just some beads, but they're actually friendship bracelets, and one of them was broken.
One of them was, like, ripped off.
I can feel the the thread.
And Jennifer's mom told me that she only really had one friend Susannah.
So the day she goes missing, she rips off her friendship bracelet? Sarah, that is something that even you have to admit is a little sketchy.
It's That's something.
Hello? Sarah? I let her go.
You you let her go? What? We need her.
She can she can interrogate people, she can - subpoena whatever - There's no one to interrogate, Murphy.
There's nothing to subpoena.
- This is nothing.
- Don't say that.
Look, she gave me a way out and I I took it.
I just kidnapped a cop, who also happens to be Darnell's girl.
I kidnapped a cop when I'm wanted for three murders that I didn't even commit.
And I did all of that because of you.
I didn't force you to do anything.
No, you didn't, but you make me stupid, Murphy.
I got to walk.
- Trey.
- Come on, Murphy.
You might think you like me, but I'm just the only person you have left.
That's not That's not even close to the truth.
Believe whatever you want.
(SIGHS) I'll drop you off at the bus station.
You can get to South Bend from there.
(LAUGHS) Sorry.
I'm just still moved by you telling me yesterday that you weren't going anywhere.
Yeah, well Things change, right? I guess they do.
Can you just drive me to Lesley's, please? (EXHALES SOFTLY) Hey, there you are.
Are you okay? Get the hell away from me.
What? Whoa, whoa, whoa.
What-what happened to you? What happened to me? I went to your place, only to have your friends hold me hostage all night, using our texts as blackmail.
- Wait, what? Murphy and Trey? - Can you just leave me alone? I had no ide (EXHALES) (GROANS) TREY: Hold on a sec.
You're back.
Is Felix here? I need him.
- "Hi, Lesley.
" - I don't really have time for that.
I just need Felix.
For what? I need a ride.
I'm sorry.
Max drove him back to Canada.
They're both gone? Yeah.
They must have got freaked out about everything.
Um Okay.
Uh Is there any chance you could drive me to South Bend? That's, like, hours away.
And I have work in the morning.
Can I just come in, then, please, until I get a ride? 'Cause I don't have any money.
Look, here's $20.
Go get yourself something to eat.
I'm going back to bed.
Take care of yourself, Murphy.
♪ ♪ (EXHALES) You okay? Yeah.
I was just getting a glass of water.
I couldn't sleep for some reason.
Come here.
(ROCK MUSIC PLAYING FAINTLY) Baby, come on ♪ I'll be there for you ♪ JESS: God, theirs are way uglier than ours.
What? Well, you know, at least ours have these little, tiny - fake diamonds on them, you know? - Oh, yeah.
So classy.
I loved this thing.
I did, too.
Do you remember when we finally decided to take them off? Yeah, when we turned 16 'cause I thought they made us look like little girls.
(CHUCKLES SOFTLY) We were little girls.
I just know that this stupid bracelet means something.
I really need to find a way to get to South Bend.
Like, imagine the fight that we would have had to get in for one of us to rip ours off.
Which means Susannah definitely murdered her.
- Jess.
Come on.
- Case closed.
Oh, no, yes, I'm sorry.
She almost murdered her, because she now thinks I'm Jennifer, and she's trying to finish the job.
Please don't start talking to me like I'm crazy, too.
- I didn't say anything.
- I literally have no one.
I've lost every single person in my life, - so please be nice to me.
- (EXHALES) Do you realize that you're asking a figment of your imagination to be nice to you? I was always so eager to grow up.
And for what? Come on.
Trey wasn't your guy.
If he was, he would have never, ever let you go.
I mean that.
No matter what, okay? I don't think Max would have ever done that to you when you guys were together.
You might have done that to him, - but I think (CHUCKLES) - Shut up.
That goes unsaid.
I love you.
I know.
Can I sit here? Oh, boy.
I'm Warren, by the way.
You play the victim ♪ Nice to meet you, Warren.
Such a sucker, oh, then what does that make me? ♪ Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah ♪ Where'd my dog go? He's over there.

AUTOMATED VOICE: Your car insurance warranty - is about to expire.
- Yep.
That bitch left without me.
Oh, God.
My mom's gonna kill me.
- Okay, um It's okay.
- Oh, no.
- This is bad.
- Where-where does your mom live? - I can just drive you.
- Oh, no.
She lives in South Bend.
I mean, that's, like, two hours away.
I couldn't ask you to do that and Uh, Pretzel! Come here.
I'll just probably take a cab or something.
No, you're not taking a cab two hours away.
Seriously, I can drive you.
I don't know, are you sure? I-I feel really bad - asking you to do that.
- No.
No, it's nothing.
For real.
- Really? - Yeah.
I wish that I could say I have a bunch of cool stuff - to cancel today, but - (CHUCKLES) all you're doing is taking four hours away from watching Lost - for the millionth time.
- Lost? Yeah.
- Wow.
