Aaron and Watson. He asks how she found out he was married, and she deflects. He says he lied to her, but "it's not what you think." See, he volunteers for a place that helps people seeking political asylum. She would have been killed if she returned home, according to Aaron. She lives in Hoboken and he checks on her sometimes. They can get a divorce in a year. House did this entire plot, you know. Watson says that helping her was a really compassionate thing to do. He asks again how she found out.
The secretary from earlier is waiting at an elevator. Holmes approaches her and calls her "Donna." She's Donna! Holmes says that she's been with Mr. Fowkes a long time. He probably owes his meteoric rise to her. She offers to call security and Holmes dares her to. He follows her into the parking garage and digs at her. "Did you boss know or were you working alone?" She says she's seen his type a lot: "My boss uses five thousand dollar suits to get attention. You use a scarf and a dirty T-shirt." Then she pulls out a taser and tases him. Holmes falls to the ground.
Holmes wakes up and compliments Donna on being interesting. He's in the situation we saw at the beginning of the episode: in the back seat, hands cuffed behind his back, and ankles zip-tied together. While he talks to Donna, he rummages through the pocket in the car door and finds a bulldog clip. Donna says he clearly didn't call anyone and that the police will find his body buried on the property. She'll frame Fowkes. Holmes says Cho will get that promotion and need an experienced secretary. Holmes gets a text from Watson, but his phone is up in the front seat next to Donna. Donna gets the phone and starts to type out a response..
Police office and that opening scene. Watson thinks Holmes relapsed because of that heroin. While talking to Gregson, she gets a text: "Everything's fine. Phone was off, my mistake. Heading back, see you soon." She slowly remembers the conversation they had earlier about how Holmes likes to use textspeak.
Holmes and Donna are on the grounds of a large estate at night. Holmes asks, "You actually expect me to dig my own grave?" Donna: "Have you ever been gut shot?" Holmes: "No. I imagine it makes it difficult to do manual labor." Holmes absolutely refuses to do any digging. Why get all sore and tired when you're just going to get shot, right? Donna says she'll do it herself, since it doesn't have to be deep. Holmes encourages her to share what started her killing. She has a gun to his head but starts talking. And then! The police are there, and that distracts her long enough for him to pick his lock. He disarms her. Holmes: "Did you know I pick locks? Pockets, too." Taser! She falls.
