We open with a man named Mr. Snyder running toward Fearless and Ray, asking if they found anything. Fearless asks Mr. Snyder to stay back. Mr. Snyder isn't being very cooperative, and tries to gather information about the suspect just over Fearless's shoulder. He thinks he sees blood. "Get Wiley into a unit and get him out of here," Fearless tells Ray. Fearless tells Mr. Snyder that the lab is checking things out. Just then, Wahlberg is heard over Fearless's radio: they've found a "D.B." Mr. Snyder quickly ascertains that "D.B." stands for Dead Body and attacks the suspect in the street, screaming, "You killed her! You killed my baby!" He's pounding the homeless-looking man over and over while the police do a poor job trying to stop it. Ray finally pulls him off and tells him to go back inside his house and stay there.
Opening credits. Remember when this was the worst part of the show?
Tom. Playing the role of Basil Exposition, Gedrick informs Fearless and Joel that Mr. Synder's wife died a year and a half ago, and Mr. Snyder has been raising the girl by himself. We're outside Mr. Snyder's swanky home in the Hollywood hills, where most of our story will take place. Fearless just now asks what happened this morning. Nice that they could wait for us before they started doing their jobs. Gedrick says that Mr. Snyder left to get some groceries, and when he came back, his daughter was gone and replaced with a giant smear of blood on the concrete by the pool. Wahlberg asks if there's any reason to doubt Mr. Snyder's story. Ray says that the store confirmed his alibi. We watch Mr. Synder stare into space as Gedrick informs us that the girl was wearing a pink sweatsuit and running shoes. To read a book by the pool? "She was a trail runner; she liked to run," Gedrick informs us. "She was on the cross-country team," Ray says, over-actingly. Wahlberg tells Ray not to use the past tense just yet. When will we find out why the four of them aren't supposed to like each other? When will we know why Wahlberg doesn't like his wife? When will Gedrick come out? Why are we still watching this show? Fearless asks whether the police dogs picked up anything. Gedrick says the dogs were just about to leave when Fearless and Wahlberg showed up. "The blood trail out the gate leads up into the hills," Gedrick says. Fearless -- showing his detective smarts -- asks, "Do you think they dragged her up into the hills?" Wow. I can't lollygag around while these boys try and figure shit out. Ray says that it might not have been a person that dragged the girl, and then everybody tries to figure out what that could mean. But we're smarter than that, and our synapses fire just as fast as they should, so I'll move on. It takes two people to summon over another woman, who explains "animals" and "predators" and "clues." They debate the possibility that a coyote dragged the girl away, which seems unlikely, since a coyote's only a bit bigger than my cat. But there are some mountain lions that apparently live in the Hollywood hills. Wahlberg bids her "happy hunting" as Gedrick stares up the hill.
