Stan visits the house he bought for his family, the symbol of failure and sadness that has now come to represent exactly how the last 13 days have ripped his former life apart. He goes to the backyard to find a swing set. Only two of the swings remain. The third has been ripped from its chains. He stares at it long and hard, struggling to catch his breath.
Night falls and the searchers find a shoe identical to the one they found on Rosie's body. Linden walks away, clearly shaken. Holder asks if she's okay. She says with a wobble that if Rosie had only turned the other way, she would have come across a neighborhood. She would have made it. She would have lived.
Linden takes her righteous rage straight to Richmond HQ, where the councilman is preparing for his rally that night. He's in a rare moment alone and Linden takes the opportunity to unload all of her anger on him. She asks how it felt when the car was sinking into water and Rosie was begging for her life. She unleashes a torrent of disgust as she notes that all the mistresses looked like Lily. But they weren't Lily, were they? She asks, "Is that why you killed her?" They get in each other's faces, screaming at one another. He rages right back that he will not put up her with her trying to interfere with his destiny when he is so close to claiming it. He explodes, "The things that I have had to do...!" She sees an in and tries to coax a confession out of him. He sees her ploy and backs off, saying, "Look at me. You know that I am telling you the truth." Out in the hallway, Gwen overhears these familiar words and is shaken to the core.
Linden heads outside into her car. She slams her hands onto her face and lets out a primal grunt. As is the case with Linden, this impulse is only allowed for a second before she gets back to work, noticing Gwen in a car across the parking lot. A bit later, they're talking to each other. Gwen admits that she lied for Richmond. He wasn't with her all night. In fact, he left their romantic getaway around midnight and didn't come back until close to dawn. And he was soaking wet. Gwen hands Linden a DVD.
As Richmond rallies his supporters, Linden presents the evidence Gwen gave her to the boss. The DVD shows footage of Richmond meeting Rosie six months before her murder. The boss is still skeptical, but Holder comes in with security cam footage of Richmond crossing Desolation Bridge at three AM Saturday morning driving the same car Rosie died in. As the rally ends, Richmond notices Linden, Holder, and several policemen piling into the background. Jamie tries to get him out of there, but it's too late. Holder puts the cuffs on Richmond, whose only response is to tell Linden, "You're making a big mistake."
