Elsewhere, Bennet Ahmed is on his way to the car and to work when he gets a call from the principal suggesting he take a few days off until things blow over. He protests, but she's unwilling to hear it. She promises to let him know when he can return to the school.
Back at the SPD, a Fed explains that "suspect Mohammed H." has made several border crossings in the last few months, as well as a trip to Somalia. They suspect him of providing material support to "certain radical elements connected to the Green Lake Mosque." Linden tells them about the anonymous tip that led her to the butcher shop. She wonders what the room she and Holder found has to do with terrorism, so another agent tells her that they found border maps, falsified IDs, the whole nine yards, in there. Though the girls traveling with the suspected terrorists weren't generally white, the feds still wonder if perhaps Rosie might have been pulled into their activities. Linden says absolutely not. She insists the connection is purely coincidental in hopes they'll give her files back, but they remain vague, refusing even to give her Mohammed's last name because they can't have any more elements of their investigation compromised. Linden throws up her hands eats it, apologizing for causing any problems.
Back at the Larsen house, Mitch and the boys head down to the garage to drive to school. The boys load into the back, and Mitch turns on the car. She realizes she forgot something, so she heads upstairs. Once there, she catches the first news report of Rosie's crime scene photos and is transfixed by the horrifying images. Meanwhile downstairs, the boys are still squabbling and playing games in the closed garage with the car running. Terry arrives as the carbon monoxide fills the room and immediately knows something is wrong. She hops into the car and opens up the garage door, saving the oblivious boys from Mitch's carelessness.
Across town, Jamie is paying a visit to wealthy donor-slash-Adams hater Tom Drexler to update him on the status of Richmond's latest campaign strategies and ask for more money to fund the private investigation. Drexler thinks Richmond is being weak and has nothing on Adams, which is pretty much the case. Instead of offering mere money, Drexler does Jamie one better, claiming he has "something that'll bury that old prick once and for all." Jamie wonders why he hasn't used this secret weapon before. Drexler laughs, "Even I have scruples."
