Closing the CaseEdit
- At the end of the episode, while looking for a story, Buzz Watson points Rusty in the direction of the Alice Herrera case. After seeing Alice's picture still on the murder board and realizing what Buzz was trying to tell him, Rusty decides to begin investigating Alice's case himself in an attempt to identify her. He posts his findings in a video blog (vblog) posted on YouTube called Identity. In "Hostage to Fortune", Rusty's efforts pan out and he identifies Alice as Mariana Wallace after locating her brother Gustavo (Gus) Wallace. In "Fifth Dynasty", Mariana is laid to rest with Rusty and the squad in attendance. His reaction at the funeral shows that what started out as a simple story for him ended with him much more emotionally involved.
- This episode launches a new series of online videos, featuring Graham Patrick Martin as Rusty Beck. With Buzz's encouragement, Rusty has begun a video blog (vlog), reporting his efforts to identify Alice Hererra. The show will release his latest vlog to multiple platforms each Monday, after the episode is broadcast.
