Veronica arrives home, and Keith tells her that a couple days after Vinnie produced the pictures, Mrs. Barry took out an additional life insurance policy on her husband. I'll assume that's one of the privileges of marriage, because if anyone could take out a policy on anyone else, I could maybe see the teensiest potential for misuse. Also, I have to point out that it seems like Mrs. Barry never learned the truth about her husband's illness, so I'm not sure what prompted her to take out this policy. Did her husband put her up to it without telling her why? Anyway, Keith goes on to say that one of the quirks of the policy is that if the death isn't natural, it pays out double, so the Barry family stands to make a cool $5 million. Veronica points out that Mrs. Barry was home at the time of the murder with her younger son, and wonders whether she could have hired someone. Keith says that he thought that at first, but that the Barrys were totally broke, so it seems unlikely that she could have scraped up the $10,000 necessary for a hitman. And thanks to this show, I know exactly what the going rate on taking out my upstairs neighbor who clomps around like a rhinoceros at 3 in the morning is. Who says TV isn't educational? Talk of the hitman seems to trigger something in Veronica -- presumably the idea that Mrs. Barry could have gotten her mitts on Josh's coins and cashed them in -- but she quickly covers, and then Keith adds the part where Barry wasn't having an affair, but was facing a grim, expensive death.
Keith goes to see Mrs. Barry.
Veronica's working on the fake license when Josh calls from an unlisted number. Given that it's broad daylight outside, Josh obviously waited a lot more than twenty-hour hours to call Veronica. But hey, no rush, right?
