The video shows Emily gagged and in a concrete room of some sort. A scrambled voice says they want 2.2 million dollars, and if Rhys goes to the police or the FBI, she does. Rhys has her phone, which he was careful not to touch. Watson asks if he actually has that much money, but Holmes says he does! He stole exactly that much from his Dominican suppliers a few years ago. And that's why he's an ex-dealer. And he didn't think he was putting Emily in danger, because nobody knew he had a daughter. Well, Holmes deduced it, but that's different. Watson recommends paying the ransom, but he's down to two thousand dollars. He's not a very good gambler. Especially if he was out losing two million dollars while he was supposed to be lying low! Holmes says he has just under 44 hours, and he expects to need half that. The game: it is afoot!
Holmes and Watson investigate Emily's home. There's a picture of Emily and her mother Penny, who Rhys says has passed away. Watson asks how he's so zen, and he explains that he once watched Holmes identify a car-bomber. "I believe in Sherlock Holmes," he says. Holmes announces that he has found some cigarette ash on the floor. It's not Emily's, because she doesn't smoke. This ash is from a popular Dominican brand. Watson is skeptical, but Holmes assures her he can identify the ash of 140 different cigarettes and cigars, "and if you'd bothered to read my monographs, you would know that." The cigarette ash thing is straight out of Doyle, but it's probably less useful now that fewer people smoke. Anyway, they struggled here, and water spilled on the attackers hand. And here on the wall is a red stain symbolic of the "Taino," which as everybody knows (according to Holmes) is the indigenous people of the Dominican Republic. But this mark is actually the hand stamp from a nightclub called "Hurricane" in Brooklyn. The water got the ink wet, and it rubbed off on the doorframe. To Brooklyn! On the way out, Rhys reminds Watson, "I believe in Sherlock Holmes."
The club is jumping. Rhys is wandering around the club in hopes of recognizing someone. To keep himself from being recognized, he's got a hat. Holmes admits to Watson that it's not the best plan. Watson is unhappy about them being in a nightclub, because the place is riddled with alcohol and drugs. Rhys tells them that a guy named Ronaldo is in the corner, and he's one of the people he stole from. Holmes sees someone from Ronaldo's table leave, and he follows him into the bathroom.
