Episode NotesEdit

  • The number 187 on one of the shooter's front door refers to California Penal Code Section 187, which defines first and second-degree murder.

The Search for Alice HerreraEdit

  • Rusty's hacking of Alice Herrera's voicemail turns up a message from a man who seems to know who she really is and she had run away from in Las Vegas. Rusty is left unsure of whether to turn the messages over to the police, but after a session with Doctor Joe, he decides to. DDA Hobbs tells him it will have no bearing on the case and allows him to post it to his blog. Its also mentioned that he now has a friend helping him with the investigation, a young man named TJ Shaw who he met in a cell phone store while looking for help. TJ was the one who helped him hack Alice's voicemail password and its suggested that Rusty may be attracted to him. Rusty denies this, claiming he's not looking for a relationship with TJ who's gay, but deeply closeted.
