Interrogation room at FBI. The unshot Lee brother slouches in a chair. David walks in and says they just got a call from the hospital about the shot Lee brother, but they won't tell him how his brother is until they get their answers. After impassively looking at photo of Dead Tracy and Logan, Lee says he doesn't know anything about Logan. Finally, the Lee brother says that the Melrose Madam's girls are always ending up in Hollywood houses, so they had a standing arrangement that any girl who could snag him an unreleased movie got five grand. Tracy got him ten to twelve movies in the last six months. "She was my big earner," the Lee brother says fondly. "Because she was sleeping with one of the guys," David snaps. "Because she had leverage," the Lee brother corrects him. Don and David stare at him. "I don't know -- maybe Brett Chandler was gay or something, she didn't tell me. But she had dirt of some kind and she knew how to use it."
"Blackmail," Charlie crystallizes for us. After Don reminds them of Logan's final words to Liz about everything falling apart, David supplies that Logan and Tracy both had this dirt on Brett. However, what's bothering the mathmo is that Tracy was blackmailing Brett for months, so why was she suddenly killed? He then launches into a game-theory mathvert about risk and response analysis, using an analogy about a lioness protecting her cub from a jackal. Until the jackal crosses a line deemed intolerable by the lioness, the jackal is safe. However, when he crosses that line, the lioness will launch and attack and kill to protect her cub. The Evil Mathra stares off into space, musing, "Some examples are so trivial as to be insulting to game theory." The point is that Tracy demanding DVDs is low-risk; so something changed to up the threat enough to have her killed. He offers to Charlie through this area of basic game theory, and Don sends them off. Meanwhile, Colby has finally found Pete, alive.
In the interrogation room, Don finds out that Pete hightailed it out of Brett's place after shooting the video. "Oh, yeah? Why?" Don wonders. "Why?" Pete boggles. "Well, there was a DEAD girl in the BATH-tub!" Pete goes on that Josh and Logan didn't want to tell anyone, not even Brett. They just wanted to get rid of her so no one would know. If Logan and Josh were with Brett on the way to the studio and Pete came running out, all freaked, how would Brett not have known? Also, Logan was all "it was serious" with Tracy, so why didn't he freak out when she was killed? Don can't believe they just let Pete leave with the video. Pete admits that he pretended to erase it because he was playing along with them, but when he didn't see anything on the news all week about the death, he decided he needed to say something, so he sent the video to the FBI. Don stares Pete down. "Listen," Pete says half-nervously, half-sadly, "those aren't the same guys that I grew up with, right? They've changed."
