Koroner Kottage again. Ellie's at the microscope looking for forensic evidence while Rudy finishes up his cop business. "You don't have to stay," Ellie says, because Ellie doesn't seem to think the serial killer will kill her or anything like that. I've decided the only way this whole episode can possibly make sense is if Ellie is a cyborg. Anyway, Rudy goes over and opens the door and sees a big manila envelope on her doormat. "What's this?" he asks Ellie. "Were you expecting anything?" Uh, yeah. Nobody thought, "Hey, the past five times the serial killer killed someone he left a videotape for the victim's friend, and I wonder if he'll leave one for Ellie?" NOBODY thought, "Hey! I wonder if we should keep an eye out for that serial killer in case he comes by Ellie's place and leaves a videotape?" NOBODY was expecting this? Nope, they're just all like, "Say! The Disturbing Video Fairy came in the night and look what he left!" Ellie takes the tape out of the envelope and pops it into the VCR. Sure enough, there's William biting the big one on MurderCam. "I guess I'm next," says Ellie.
Police station. The Perky Secretary Who Has Little Nothing Scenes That I Never Mention In These Recaps is still squabbling with Tech Guy. And over in Rudy's office, Ellie tells Agent Trenchcoat that she doesn't want the FBI's crappy-ass protection. Yeah, she'll just take her business to another Federal agency! Yeah, she'll try the ATF! They have lots of guns and stuff! And better service! Yeah! Rudy plans to have his deputies watch her around the clock. Mike doesn't think this is such a great idea. They need a Plan.
Elsewhere, the Seattle Tribune runs a front-page story about William's death. Sara is pissed: "I had that story!" It's probably enough to make her want to go home and eat Häagen-Dazs and talk to Fabio on her favorite romance novel cover.
Mike is walking up to the Kottage when he sees Handsome Bachelor snapping pictures of the house. "I thought I'd take in some of the beautiful scenery," he tells Mike, "since I'm on vacation and all." "This is private property," says Mike. Handsome Bachelor explains, not very convincingly, that he thought this was "one of those historical sites." He also tries to hide the camera. "Why are you really here?" Mike asks. "I told you, I'm on vacation," says Handsome Bachelor, snippily, and walks off.
