The paramedics, along with Sheriff Rudy and Agent Trenchcoat, come in. Trenchcoat ticks off Ellie by calling in the Seattle medical examiner on her jurisdiction; then he ticks off Rudy by declaring an "information blackout." "'Information' like the killer was sending videotapes?" asks Rudy. "We have the facts we decide you need," says Agent Trenchcoat. There's all sorts of wacky local-cop-and- Fed-agent pissing contest antics. And Ellie's pissed at Mike for getting her friend all killed.
Dolan house. Sara tries to get Mike to tell her what happened. "The Seattle killer's in town, isn't he?" she says. "How many times do I have to say 'No comment'?" says Mike. The doorbell rings. Mitzi and Sam race ahead of Sara to let Handsome Bachelor in. Mitzi's waaaay too into Handsome Bachelor. Sara excuses herself for a moment to talk to Mike. "Mike, this is a scoop -- could you give me a couple quotes off the record?" Mike glumly replies that he can't say anything, because if it were reported in the Gazette, it could put Ellie in danger. Handsome Bachelor overhears Mike and Sara talking. Then Sara tells Handsome Bachelor that they'll have to postpone their date because, she says, she's got an important deadline, and also probably because she'd already planned a big night of eating chocolate and dressing up her cats in baby clothes and having crying jags while singing along to Laura Branigan CDs.
