John comes over to Karen's apartment, and she reluctantly lets him in. Colin is sitting on the couch. John introduces himself as Karen's boss. Colin immediately leaves. Karen tries to clean up a bit. John asks why she didn't tell him about being at the museum that night. Karen doesn't answer. John points out that he just got her out of jail free. Karen says that he doesn't know where he came from and is obsessed with finding out, whereas she knows where she came from and would rather that no one found out. John doesn't understand. Karen says that she has to take the garbage out before the trash collector comes. John wonders why her trash is collected at 10 PM, but Karen leaves anyway. The phone rings, and the machine picks up. John listens to the message: "Karen. It's Max. Where the hell are you? Look, I was hoping to catch you tonight. I'm blowing out of town soon. I'm not really sure when I'm gonna be back. I'm doing a photo shoot here at the studio all night. Try and swing by, would you? It's important." John realizes about halfway through that it's the same Max he discussed with Frank earlier, and when the message ends, he replays it. John checks the suspect list he got from Frank as he listens.
At the police station, John walks in and tells Frank that he thinks Max Clark is the thief. Frank wonders why. John says "word on the street" is that Max is thinking about leaving town. Frank asks about John's source, and all John will say is, "A little bird." John asks if Frank is coming with him, and Frank follows.
Frank and John walk up to Max's studio, followed by a couple of uniforms. Frank yells at someone on the phone, then hangs up and informs John that Cheryl the Security Guard's body never got checked in at the coroner's office. Frank knocks on the studio door and flashes a badge to gain entrance. I guess the photographs on the wall and the people hanging around are supposed to be edgy, but they're so not. It's like, "Ooh, young girls with pierced noses and eyebrows!" Like that doesn't describe every college campus in the country these days. Frank interrupts Max Clark, who is played by Shug from It's Like, You Know. Yes, I used to watch that show. I'm the one. He's dressed all in black, because he's a bad boy. Frank flashes a badge. Max asks what he wants. Frank asks what Max is working on. Max says it's a study of the decoration of the human body. John notices that one of the girls has an infected piercing, and advises her to use a topical antibiotic. Frank brings up the robbery and murder at the museum. Max claims he doesn't know anything about it. Frank talks about Max's supposed vendetta against the museum, and Max says that he has more important things to worry about. John checks out some of the photographs on the wall. Frank tells Max that they're going downtown, and then calls out to John. Frank walks over and sees John staring at a photograph of Karen. I think I'm supposed to be shocked or something, but it's so not shocking. It's Karen, lying naked on a mattress, bound up in what looks like toilet paper. Frankly, I've seen more of Karen in most of the outfits she wears on this show. I mean, it's not like she's spread-eagled or something.
