Anyway, as Pesco continues to talk to John, Frank's phone rings. The robot voice asks for John. Frank slowly turns towards John, who is patiently listening to Pesco go on and on about how he could quit his sewer job and become a consultant for the police force. Frank yells at Pesco to go home. John takes the phone and listens as the killer says that his prize for solving the puzzle earlier is underneath the copy machine. You'll note that the killer did not ask or answer any questions. Because it was totally a recording. Not to ruin it for you, but it's easier to just tell you that now than to wait until it's revealed at the end of the episode, and then you have to hit the back button and reread the scene in question with your new knowledge in mind, kind of like how you had to watch The Others again after seeing the end to see if it held together. So I'm saving you the trouble and just telling you that it was clearly a recording. Pesco asks if it was The Mourner on the phone. John pops open the bottom of the copier to find a package wrapped in pink paper, and on top is a pink envelope with the symbol. Frank yells out that they need to evacuate all nonessential personnel. Lt. Bosslady orders them to lock the place down and clear a one-block perimeter. How did she even know what was going on? She just stomped out of her office and started ordering people around. Which is totally what I would do in her job, but that's neither here nor there. Everyone evacuates the building, and a bomb squad guy comes in and removes the package. He quickly realizes that it doesn't contain a bomb.
