After Gil's had a chance to examine the body -- he's alone with it now as it dangles down -- he calls out, "Catherine! There's a whole 'nother set of horizontal marks on her neck below the cord, and postmortem bruising. I think she was strangled first, and then hanged." Catherine replies, "[Muffle, muffle, murmur]," just so we're all reminded that Gil is indeed losing his hearing and still runs afoul of that reality in formerly-routine work situations. Or maybe she doesn't, since Gil's deafness comes and goes whenever it's convenient. Catherine comes in from wherever she was, and announces that there were no signs of a break-in, so Audrey was killed by someone she knew. Gil examines Audrey's shoes and concludes, "She was dragged. She's got carpet fibers on her heels." Catherine's up by the railing; she adds, "She was dragged over here, tied off, and shoved over." We see a flashback of all this, complete with crunchy sounds as Audrey's body begins swinging. That would be assorted things in her neck breaking, wouldn't they? Gil, meanwhile, has noticed something else. Catherine asks him what it is, and Gil replies, "When we were here earlier, there was a movie schedule pinned up there that had a handwritten note on it. I'm not sure she wanted me to see it. Now it's gone." Gil's off to figure out where it went: it's not in the trash can downstairs, so he heads up to the bathroom, checks that empty trash can, then notices a splash of water by the base of the toilet. Cue him taking out the plunger -- let us all hope he's right about his hunch -- and producing the sodden schedule, which he fishes out of the bowl.
Back in drier habitats, i.e. the Labitrail, Warrick is getting results off the minivan's tires; he matches them up to the pictures Sara had earlier and comments, "Venus and Serena --a perfect match." A more thorough examination of the minivan bears even more fruit: the torn twelve-pack case with a price sticker from Jenko Liquor, and a spattering of blood on the driver's side of the van. Warrick sprays it with reagent, and it turns bright magenta.
Cut to Buzz talking to Kevin, who still insists that he'd never do anything so uncool as hang out with his fifteen-year-old brother when he's got a posse of infinitely more mature eighteen-year-old boys to run with. Buzz is unmoved: "Evidence says you were there. You want to go down for suspicion of murder? Or do you want to stop digging your own grave? It's up to you." Off in the hidden compartment behind the mirror, Warrick is watching -- yes, he finally looks beleaguered -- when Nicky comes up to share that he's just come from visiting Bobby the ballistics tech without us, and all the bullets came from the same 9mm semi. Warrick fills Nicky in on his discoveries and notes the price sticker for Jenko Liquor. Nicky immediately volunteers to check the surveillance tapes to see if they can get footage of the kids. Back in the fishbowl, as Kevin readjusts, Nicky notices a stain on the sleeve of his shirt and asks sharply, "What is that on his elbow?"
