Clean-Cut is sitting in a detention center. A woman who is not Tess Mercer, but is dressed like her, enters the room. Clean-Cut guesses she's not a lawyer. She shows him that day's paper and congratulates him for making Page 1. The headline says, "Shadow Killer Caught." He says it's nice to have his work recognized after having been the little boy in the shadow. Tess's foot soldier tells him he has more admirers than he thinks. She tells him that her boss, Tess Mercer, is gathering a group of talented people like him. He's not interested in sharing top billing. She calls him on his bullshit. She says he's just a copycat looking for attention, and that he didn't commit those murders. She says the cops haven't seen it yet, but there's surveillance footage of him at an arcade during the crimes. What teenager still goes to a video arcade? She says he must have studied the crimes. She asks him to remember a nun at St. Vincent's who was crushed to death. Clean-Cut insists that it was him and that the timecode on the video must be wrong. She asks where the missing onyx crucifix on the rosary is. "You didn't kill her," she insists. Uh-oh.
We cut to an exterior shot of Davis getting into his ambulance. Davis, sitting at the wheel, starts to blink and lose focus. The camera pans left and focuses on something hanging from the rearview mirror. It's a crucifix, the same one taken from the nun that Davis apparently killed. Doomsday! We cut to black.
Next week: Jimmy snaps a photo of Clark in a compromising position. And does Clark suit up? Maybe.
