Meanwhile, Sterling finds a strung-out emo punk named Kris and asks him where Rosie's boyfriend Jasper is and whether he hooked up with Rosie that weekend. Kris is less-than-cooperative, demanding a cigarette before he'll give her any information. He tells her that Jasper scored Ecstasy then went to his island house while his parents went out of town that weekend. He guesses Rosie was probably with him since Ecstasy makes Jasper horny.
Out on the island, Jasper is playing a video game. His phone vibrates, but he can't hear it for the loud metal music playing in the background. A naked, faceless brunette stirs and groans in the bed behind him. Is it Rosie? (Anyone who has seen even a smidgen of advertising for this show knows it won't be, but we'll humor the suspenseful ending for the moment...)
Linden takes Jack to Reggie's boat to stay. She is unhappy that he was smoking cigarettes at school, but he only issues a glib, "It's not like I was smoking crack, mom. God!" She tries to encourage him to get his friends' addresses so they can stay in touch, but he obnoxiously reminds her there's this thing called Facebook nowadays. She tries one more time, telling him Rick's going to throw a party for him when they arrive and invite all the neighborhood kids. He replies curtly, "He's not my dad." With that, her phone rings. She leaves Jack with Reggie, then heads back to the crime scene to meet Holder.
Over at the Larsen house, Mitch leaves Stan a frantic message to call her back. Her sons bust in looking for Rosie, who promised to take them bike riding that afternoon. Mitch's sister Terry lies that Rosie's still at school and offers to take them instead. Mitch says, "That girl's gonna get the ass-kickin' of her life when she shows up." Just then, Stan calls, and Mitch updates him on what they know -- which isn't very much.
Crime scene. The K9 unit scours the ground.
Back at the house, Stan wonders if Rosie's still dating Jasper and decides to go out and take matters into his own hands. Before he leaves, Mitch tearfully tells him the cops were asking for identifying marks. She told them Rosie always wore a butterfly necklace. She knows in her heart why the cops asked these questions, but she still asks, unwilling to believe their implications. Stan assures her this is just the lark of a dumb teenage girl. He promises to find her. This gives Mitch the strength to hold it together a little longer.
