Godcam takes us to Hastings, Nebraska. Detective Ehrle is asking Alex's sister, Mrs. Freedman, where Alex went. Hey, Katie Finneran has straight hair now! Sis -- because that's what I'm gonna call her until she gets a first name -- explains that Alex called a few days ago and asked her to look after things, and that's all she knows. They walk into the house, which is full of fliers and flotsam from the search for Kathryn. Ehrle is a little troubled by the fact that Alex left town while everyone else was looking for his wife. He says things don't smell right, and Sis replies, "How does it smell, Detective?" which is a mighty peculiar line. Instead of saying, "Were you listening? Not right," Ehrle says, "Smells like he's running."
Interrogation room. Poole explains that four men staged a holdup at the First National Credit Union in Kentucky. Poole and his partner were first responders. "There was a shootout, all four men escaped, three bodies were left behind." And one of the victims was Poole's partner. Throughout this, Alex interrupts to say he wasn't there, it wasn't him, and some other dude did it. And that's when my recording has a seizure, so thank you, Fox, for putting the episodes online. Otherwise the recap for the rest of this scene would have been, "Then they get pixelated and freeze for a full minute and say 'whu -- fuh -- blzzzr.' When did Ionesco join the writing staff?" Anyway. Poole says that he doesn't think Alex actually killed anyone; he just drove the getaway car. He cheerfully adds, "But according to the law, [Alex is] just as guilty as the guy who does pull the trigger." Alex protests some more, and Poole says he'll always remember Alex's partner. Just like he remembers Alex. He sits on the table and explains, "We're gonna be here until you come clean. Until you admit who you really are."
In the Firebird, Ellie aims for comforting but hits callous instead when she points out that that Rob wasn't actually friends with Mike Bakka. Rob says that's true, but they trained together. His voice shakes as he explains, "My outfit did two weeks with Bakka's unit in one-hundred-degree heat, eating dust and bugs -- I knew all those guys!" He adds that yesterday, there were sixteen injuries and three deaths in Bakka's unit. "A unit gets hit like that and people get on the horn! I haven't heard word one!" He asks for the phone so he can call people about it, but Ellie refuses. She claims she's concerned about the dangers of operating a phone while driving, and it's nice that someone is. You'd think the sponsors would have given them all Bluetooth headsets or something. She tells Rob to make his calls when they get to Rome. Rob doesn't like that, and they start arguing. Eventually Ellie rolls the window down and tosses the phone out of the car. Brilliant.
