Liza breaks into Casa Nolan to try to retrieve Eddie's laptop, but in the dark, she literally trips over Maria's dead body. She has a gun in her hand, so it's apparently a suicide, though is it ever really suicide in Palm Springs? Liza calls Johnny, who shows up after the police have arrived, and right before Greta. Liza thinks this proves that Maria was the one who killed Eddie, and she collapses, crying, onto Greta's shoulder.
To the strains of Coldplay -- actual Coldplay this time, and not the knockoff Coldplay that's usually heard at this stage of the episode -- all of Palm Springs, including Tess, Cliff, and Nikki, show up to gape at Maria's crime scene. Nobody seems to notice Skip make off with Eddie's laptop. Cliff actually expresses concern over another human being, asking Johnny if this helps him get closure on his dad's death. Johnny's too busy reminding himself to inhale and exhale to respond.
Later on, Greta expresses her gratitude for her newfound peace of mind about Eddie's death to Johnny. She sees Johnny out and then has an insincere moment of closure with Skip, who's as squirrelly as you please, placing a framed photo of Greta's mom on the table. Johnny gets home and sees the email message he didn't have time to read when Liza called. Coldplay helpfully shuts up so we can devote all our concentration to this last-second plot twist. The email is from Maria, right before she died, and it's a video clip of Eddie confronting Maria and Skip. Eddie accuses them both of killing Greta's mother and says he's going to tell Greta. Skip has a gun, he and Eddie struggle, and Eddie gets shot. DUN! Over! We can only hope Skip decided to kill Greta as a way of tying up loose ends after the show ended. Farewell, Hidden Palms. You were kind of interesting for a second there.
