Day 12. Linden deals with the fallout of Jack's disappearance as she and Holder learn that Rosie was regularly depositing money at the casino while wearing various saucy outfits. At last deposit, Rosie's account was up to nearly seven thousand dollars. They question Terri, whose name is on the account, but she gives them nothing. A visit with Holder's former undercover partner turns up the possibility that Rosie may have been working for an escort service called Beau Soleil, whose patrons have been known to get violent. Further digging turns up that it was, in fact, Terri who was working for Beau Soleil. They question her again, and she admits she showered Rosie with gifts from her dates, which may have inspired Rosie to check out the service herself. Terri (a.k.a. Simone) also gives the detectives a lead on a John who goes by the moniker Orpheus, has a drowning fetish, and suspiciously closed his Beau Soleil account at four in the morning on the night Rosie died. Holder books a date with the escort who warned the other girls of Orpheus' proclivities. For her part, Linden e-mails Orpheus, thinking Orpheus is likely Tom Drexler. She gets antsy and pays a visit to Richmond to ask him about Drexler's campaign contributions. Instead of confirming her suspicions, she shockingly learns -- at the same time as Holder, thanks to his witness -- that Orpheus is Richmond! Richmond is Orpheus!
While Stan sits in prison, Mitch hears a voicemail left by Janek, his old Polish mob boss. She immediately assumes that Stan is back in the business and goes on a tear, firing Belko and taking Stan to task when she visits him in jail. Stan counters by calling her out for driving him to abduct and brutalize Ahmed. She continues on her warpath to antagonize and insult Terri for being an overgrown child. As Mitch wallows in the anger stage of grieving, Stan is mysteriously released on bail.
Before the big reveal, Richmond gets a late-in-the-game gift when Native American remains are discovered at the construction site of Mayor Adams' waterfront project. Drexler summons Jamie to celebrate the good news, during which he parades around various bathing Beau Soleil beauties. Adams, meanwhile, gives Gwen a packet of photos of Richmond with Beau Soleil girls. Who hasn't been, apparently?

Previously: Stan bought a house and didn't tell anybody. Then he beat the ever living crap out of Rosie's teacher and did tell some people. Namely, the cops. Rosie deposited money into a casino ATM and didn't tell anybody. Richmond told bad boy billionaire Tom Drexler to give him $5 million. And Mayor Adams couldn't stop telling everyone about how his waterfront renewal project would save the city.
Night 11. Construction workers dig up the waterfront project until they find something suspicious. Upon further inspection, it appears to be a human skull. As Linden curses out her husband for practically abducting Jack, Holder shows her the ATM still of Rosie depositing money at the casino. Credits.
Holder shows Linden the various pictures of Rosie depositing money at the casino. He says he almost missed her because he wasn't used to seeing her so dolled up. Linden notes that the last ATM still was grabbed at 12:37 AM on the night that Rosie died. Holder tells her Rosie was putting in some serious cash -- almost $7,000 at last count. He wonders what she was doing for that kind of money, then says, "You know what the best part is? It's not her account."
Day 12. News breaks quickly that human (specifically Native American) remains were found on Adams waterfront construction site. Adams and his advisers know he's sunk. Meanwhile, Richmond is fielding calls from all major media outlets and everyone's mother to endorse him. Jamie thinks they're unstoppable. "I mean, nothing beats dead Indians. Didn't you see Poltergeist?" Richmond admits he's not even slightly chagrined for the incumbent. Speaking of fellow nemeses, Jamie tells Richmond that Drexler has invited both of them over for an impromptu celebration that evening. Gwen says Richmond doesn't have time for such things because he's doing an interview with the local newspaper. Richmond agrees and sends Jamie to do the dirty work with Drexler. The phone rings. It's Senator Eaton for Richmond.
Meanwhile, the phone is also ringing at Stan's business while Mitch cleans out his file drawers. The call goes to voicemail (the old kind where you can actually hear the message that's being left). It's Janek Kovarsky, the Polish mafia boss for whom Stan used to work. Mitch is incensed and interrogates Belko when he comes into the office. Belko clams up, so Mitch fires him without blinking an eye. In prison, Stan leaves a message on Mitch's voicemail. He tells her he has an appointment with the psychologist and that he misses her.
