Back at the office, Linden looks over the yearbook video. Holder says he thinks Jasper is their perp, but his only evidence is that Jasper is a douche. True, but won't hold up in court. Linden tells Holder to watch his mouth because Jack's with them today. Not a minute later, Holder's saying he found nothing in Rosie's locker but books that he doesn't give a shit about. Annoyed, Linden moves on to Rosie's cell phone records, which consisted mainly of calls home and to Sterling. She wonders what a "good girl with no secrets" like Rosie was doing with Jasper. Holder points out that Rosie lied to her parents about wearing a costume to the Halloween dance. Then he notices she has expensive designer shoes her parents definitely couldn't have afforded.
The boss interrupts to tell them Jasper was arrested in the past for taking a car for a joy ride. No charges were ever pressed, presumably because of his father's money and power. With his record, Jasper just jumped to their number one person of interest, especially since Richmond's and Larsen's employees' alibis checked out. Just then, the boss gets the tip that Richmond's press release is set to come out in an hour.
Richmond's office. All his staffers' e-mails came up clean. Jamie smugly tells him the good news that their staffers were relieved of suspicion and the car was reported stolen. Richmond is relieved that their connection to the murder seems purely coincidental. Just then, Councilwoman Yitanes makes her grand entrance. She wonders what secret he's harboring to call this meeting. Before he tells her, he butters her up by reminding her how important her endorsement and the union vote will be to his campaign. She curtly tells him to lose his Armani suit before they meet up with the working stiffs. He is just about to tell her about Rosie, when Gwen takes him outside to speak with Linden. She threatens him to halt the press release or be known as a candidate who obstructed a child's murder investigation. He agrees to wait until midnight to go public. She gives him her card and tells him Holder will be taking over tomorrow. As he walks away, she tells him to call off his investigator at the school. He wonders how she knew about that. Fact: She didn't. As Linden leaves, Richmond tells Gwen to call a reporter they know to give him an exclusive that will print right after Yitanes' endorsement is announced. Speaking of whom, Richmond goes back in to break the news to Yitanes. Or, in fact, to chicken out and tell her that he smoked pot in college. She says, "Just don't get caught with some intern's face in your crotch, and you'll be the next mayor."
