Right, 445 00:30:01,966 --> 00:30:06,069 so if someone suspects Barnes of killing Howell, they'll have to think twice.

Most murders always trace back... 455 00:30:40,738 --> 00:30:43,173 to someone not getting what they wanted. 456 00:30:43,208 --> 00:30:46,510 Well, do you think that Jocelyn was not getting... 457 00:30:46,544 --> 00:30:49,713 what she wanted? - I'd say it's a possibility.

I did some digging. 466 00:31:20,011 --> 00:31:24,314 That company definitely has its ups and downs. - That's very interesting, Dad. 467 00:31:24,382 --> 00:31:27,050 Let's add that to the mix.

Our roses... 571 00:38:11,889 --> 00:38:17,027 are not a prank. They're art. - I'm sorry, Nikki. Alright, a hundred bucks, 572 00:38:17,061 --> 00:38:22,365 US mail, not a local florist... it seems too much thought for a student to have done this. 573 00:38:22,433 --> 00:38:26,936 You're pretty impressive, Abby. I have to admit, I like the way you think. 574 00:38:26,971 --> 00:38:28,905 Among other things. 575 00:38:28,939 --> 00:38:31,775 Oh, relax, partner. 576 00:38:31,809 --> 00:38:35,679 Abby, I don't want you to worry about Detective Reilly anymore, OK? 577 00:38:35,713 --> 00:38:39,549 My guess is he's got nothing.

I'm Abby Knight. - I know who you are. 594 00:39:38,409 --> 00:39:43,413 Suspect number one. - I had nothing to do with what happened to Professor Howell. 595 00:39:45,216 --> 00:39:48,017 But I would like to talk to you about him, if that's OK. 596 00:39:48,052 --> 00:39:51,087 I'm really busy right now and I have to get to a meeting, so... 597 00:39:51,122 --> 00:39:55,024 Besides, I'm hardly the only person that the police have their eye on. 598 00:39:59,363 --> 00:40:01,831 Come with me. 599 00:40:10,608 --> 00:40:14,711 Who do you think killed Professor Howell? If you had to take a stab.. uh, guess. 600 00:40:14,745 --> 00:40:18,915 I really don't know. I've worked here for ten years and I've never met anybody... 601 00:40:18,949 --> 00:40:22,685 who didn't like or at least respect Professor Howell. Ex... 602 00:40:24,255 --> 00:40:28,291 Except Professor Barnes, but he doesn't really like anybody, so... 603 00:40:28,325 --> 00:40:31,628 How about somebody he was dating who got possessive, like "If I can't have him, 604 00:40:31,662 --> 00:40:35,832 nobody will"? - Look, it's no secret Carson had a revolving door of women, 605 00:40:35,900 --> 00:40:38,501 but any specific troublemaker? Not that I know of. 606 00:40:38,536 --> 00:40:42,338 - And you and he, nothing? - Me? No! 607 00:40:42,373 --> 00:40:45,175 No, he was my boss and my friend. 608 00:40:45,209 --> 00:40:49,479 Plus I already have a guy. - Still, this must have been very hard for you. 609 00:40:49,513 --> 00:40:52,749 Like I said, he was my boss and my friend and... 610 00:40:52,783 --> 00:40:55,084 it haunts me every minute. 611 00:40:55,119 --> 00:40:58,321 I have to go to the admissions office, OK? - OK. I'm sorry. 612 00:40:58,355 --> 00:41:01,458 Thank you. Thank you. 613 00:42:33,450 --> 00:42:35,818 - Ah!

Call Detective Reilly if you want. 615 00:42:39,657 --> 00:42:42,225 I would be glad to clue him in on your motive. 616 00:42:42,259 --> 00:42:45,995 - Oh, really? And what would that be? - His denying you tenure. 617 00:42:46,030 --> 00:42:49,032 You thought it would help if Howell was out of the picture. 618 00:42:51,569 --> 00:42:55,972 You have a very vivid imagination, Ms. Knight. I strongly suggest... 619 00:42:56,006 --> 00:42:58,942 you drop your snooping and go back to your little flower shop, 620 00:42:58,976 --> 00:43:03,379 Ms. Knight. You don't want me as an enemy. - I believe you. 621 00:43:03,447 --> 00:43:06,182 Careful, you're leaving a trail. 622 00:43:09,920 --> 00:43:14,023 Motive confirmed. - From the looks of it, seems that Mr. Barnes here... 623 00:43:14,058 --> 00:43:17,493 is your primary suspect. - A lot sure points to it. 624 00:43:17,528 --> 00:43:21,698 Maybe too much. - Either way, the guy sounds like a total horror show. 625 00:43:21,732 --> 00:43:25,802 But... OK, Abby, 626 00:43:25,836 --> 00:43:29,205 attractive woman to equally attractive woman, 627 00:43:29,239 --> 00:43:32,008 do you really believe Belinda never had a thing for Howell? 628 00:43:32,042 --> 00:43:36,279 I was able to resist his charms; there's no reason she couldn't. But I was thinking... 629 00:43:36,313 --> 00:43:39,382 the same thing, that's why I'm not letting her off the hook so fast. 630 00:43:39,416 --> 00:43:41,818 Dad, do the honors. 631 00:43:41,852 --> 00:43:44,721 I see your Jocelyn Barnes column is a little light. 632 00:43:44,755 --> 00:43:47,657 What's with her? - Ask Marco.

Wait a second. Can I get you a martini? 668 00:45:44,942 --> 00:45:49,145 - Absolutely not.

And I know if I don't talk to you, 704 00:47:47,397 --> 00:47:50,766 you're not responsible for what you write, but you know what? 705 00:47:50,801 --> 00:47:53,236 You're totally responsible for what you write. 706 00:47:53,270 --> 00:47:56,873 And for who you mislead. And who you hurt. 707 00:47:56,907 --> 00:48:00,776 And on that, you can quote me. 708 00:48:03,847 --> 00:48:06,449 Have a great day, Ms. Knight. 709 00:48:23,634 --> 00:48:26,669 How'd you do? B plus?! 710 00:48:26,703 --> 00:48:29,005 Sydney, you killed it! 711 00:48:29,039 --> 00:48:32,241 B plus from Barnes is like an A plus from regular professors. 712 00:48:32,276 --> 00:48:35,311 I hope I didn't say that too loud, but... but it's true! 713 00:48:35,345 --> 00:48:38,547 I studied like crazy for that test, but honestly, 714 00:48:38,582 --> 00:48:41,384 I thought he was gonna give me a bad mark just because. - Just because why? 715 00:48:41,418 --> 00:48:44,987 Because my mom has it out for him. Or vice-versa, I don't know. 716 00:48:45,022 --> 00:48:48,991 Yeah, well, your mom's in a pretty tough spot. She's gotta do what she's gotta do. 717 00:48:49,026 --> 00:48:53,095 So, what's your best guess on who killed Howell? 718 00:48:53,163 --> 00:48:57,266 I'm still leaning towards the scorned woman theory, 719 00:48:57,301 --> 00:49:01,003 but who knows? You know what I will tell you, though? 720 00:49:01,038 --> 00:49:03,639 You know who's really flying under the radar right now? 721 00:49:03,674 --> 00:49:06,842 It's Belinda Harper. - From the office? - Yeah. 722 00:49:06,877 --> 00:49:10,613 - Why do you think? - Well, I mean, I just saw the way... 723 00:49:10,647 --> 00:49:14,116 that she was around Howell. She was totally into that guy. 724 00:49:14,151 --> 00:49:18,120 I don't know if anything ever happened between the two of them, but... 725 00:49:18,155 --> 00:49:22,258 if it did... I'm just saying. 726 00:49:36,506 --> 00:49:39,542 Dad? What are you doing here? Is that my paper? 727 00:49:39,576 --> 00:49:41,911 Yeah. 728 00:49:41,945 --> 00:49:46,382 I thought you might need some company while you read it. Here, drink this first. 729 00:49:46,416 --> 00:49:48,617 Is it bad? 730 00:49:48,652 --> 00:49:51,721 Oh, of course it's bad. It's 8 o'clock in the morning... 731 00:49:51,755 --> 00:49:54,690 and you're here with tea and sympathy. - It's a $9 tea drink... 732 00:49:54,725 --> 00:49:58,594 for Andy. 733 00:49:58,628 --> 00:50:01,564 Ooh! Good. Very good. Now let me see the paper. 734 00:50:05,435 --> 00:50:08,904 What? My driver's license photo? 735 00:50:08,939 --> 00:50:13,109 - It gets better. Meaning worse. - "Ms. Knight has repeatedly refused interviews. 736 00:50:13,143 --> 00:50:17,146 "Local observers seem eager to talk about her. 737 00:50:17,180 --> 00:50:20,983 "'If she's got nothing to hide, why not talk to the press? Makes you wonder, doesn't it?' 738 00:50:21,051 --> 00:50:23,386 "Said one longtime New Chapel resident... 739 00:50:23,420 --> 00:50:26,756 who requested anonymity." And the photo... 740 00:50:26,790 --> 00:50:29,025 It already looks like a mug shot. - Monkey, 741 00:50:29,059 --> 00:50:32,395 maybe you should sit down with this reporter. You know, back in the day, 742 00:50:32,429 --> 00:50:35,798 I knew how to work the press in my favor. You can do it. 743 00:50:35,832 --> 00:50:39,468 Oh, Dad, right now I just need to get to work. Thank you for the tea. 744 00:50:39,536 --> 00:50:43,005 At the very least, get a new driver's license photo. 745 00:50:43,073 --> 00:50:45,574 That's for sure. 746 00:50:51,048 --> 00:50:55,084 What happened to your hair? 747 00:50:55,118 --> 00:50:59,155 What are you talking about? It's bold. I personally... 748 00:50:59,189 --> 00:51:02,892 love bold. 749 00:51:02,926 --> 00:51:05,861 Guys, come on! Can we please focus? 750 00:51:05,929 --> 00:51:09,465 OK, I'll do it. Listen, 751 00:51:09,499 --> 00:51:12,935 Nikki and I were talking earlier and we both think that you should get yourself a lawyer. 752 00:51:12,969 --> 00:51:16,739 I'm sure Dave King would be happy to take your case. 753 00:51:16,773 --> 00:51:21,110 Hire a lawyer? I am a lawyer. A good one. 754 00:51:21,144 --> 00:51:24,680 If I lawyer up now, I look 100% guilty. No way. 755 00:51:24,714 --> 00:51:27,483 - Abby, we're just looking out for you. - I know! I know! 756 00:51:29,386 --> 00:51:32,721 But the instinct was right! I'm a good lawyer, 757 00:51:32,756 --> 00:51:36,625 but Reilly hasn't witnessed that yet, so I'm gonna go visit him pro se, 758 00:51:36,660 --> 00:51:39,161 which is Latin for myself, and set him straight... 759 00:51:39,196 --> 00:51:41,163 using facts, using logic, 760 00:51:41,198 --> 00:51:43,532 convincing him beyond a reasonable doubt... 761 00:51:43,567 --> 00:51:46,035 that I am innocent! 762 00:51:46,069 --> 00:51:49,238 But this goes away. 763 00:51:54,311 --> 00:51:57,012 In addition to a strained work relationship 764 00:51:57,047 --> 00:52:01,617 in regards to jealousy about tenure, Bruce Barnes had the most obvious reason... 765 00:52:01,651 --> 00:52:04,753 to murder Howell. However, I would not discount rumors, 766 00:52:04,788 --> 00:52:07,323 even though they are pure conjecture and inadmissible in court. 767 00:52:07,390 --> 00:52:12,461 A jilted lover may have actually killed him, leaving the names Belinda Harper... 768 00:52:12,496 --> 00:52:15,231 and the aforementioned Jocelyn Barnes. 769 00:52:15,265 --> 00:52:19,301 So, in summation, there are at least five suspects... 770 00:52:19,336 --> 00:52:21,971 with a motive. Abby Knight... 771 00:52:22,005 --> 00:52:25,274 clearly did not have the deliberation, the intent, 772 00:52:25,308 --> 00:52:29,411 nor the premeditation to be a suspect. And with that, Detective Reilly, 773 00:52:29,446 --> 00:52:32,581 I rest my case. - That still doesn't change the fact... 774 00:52:32,616 --> 00:52:34,950 that your fingerprints were on the murder weapon. 775 00:52:34,985 --> 00:52:37,820 That's it? That's your investigation? 776 00:52:37,854 --> 00:52:42,358 Fingerprints can be such a nuisance. Especially when they're yours. 777 00:52:42,392 --> 00:52:44,994 In a very rare moment of klutziness, I knocked over Barnes' pencils. 778 00:52:45,028 --> 00:52:49,231 Had the courtesy to clean after myself, and that is why my fingerprints are all over... 779 00:52:49,266 --> 00:52:51,734 those pencils. - So your lack of dexterity is your alibi? 780 00:52:51,768 --> 00:52:54,003 My grace precedes me. 781 00:52:54,037 --> 00:52:56,672 Are we done here? - I believe so. 782 00:53:01,278 --> 00:53:04,613 - That was an accident. - Ann, 783 00:53:04,648 --> 00:53:09,318 can I get a fresh cup of coffee and some baking soda and some vinegar... 784 00:53:09,352 --> 00:53:12,254 and a couple of aspirin? And a rag. 785 00:53:19,262 --> 00:53:23,365 Ever heard of the phrase 'he who represents himself has a fool for a client'? 786 00:53:23,400 --> 00:53:26,502 Let me guess. It didn't go over so well. 787 00:53:26,536 --> 00:53:30,105 I talked to Reilly. He will not get off the fingerprints. 788 00:53:30,140 --> 00:53:33,042 Well, maybe you gotta put your investigation on hold for now. 789 00:53:33,076 --> 00:53:35,678 What? No! That's the whole point! 790 00:53:35,712 --> 00:53:37,880 Clearly, I can't count on the law. 791 00:53:37,914 --> 00:53:41,150 It is me, myself and I, and hopefully you. 792 00:53:41,184 --> 00:53:45,020 Give it a week, Abby. What's it gonna hurt? Focus on your shop, 793 00:53:45,055 --> 00:53:48,857 focus on Sydney, your dad... focus on me if you want. 794 00:53:48,892 --> 00:53:51,827 Let the truth come out the way it's supposed to. - I don't get it, Marco. 795 00:53:51,861 --> 00:53:55,331 What is this, a control thing? You're trying to teach me a lesson? 796 00:53:55,365 --> 00:53:57,600 - Abby, whatever happened to "I have so much to lose"? - I do, 797 00:53:57,634 --> 00:54:00,236 even more so now, but when I said that, I didn't think it would include you. 798 00:54:00,270 --> 00:54:02,504 OK, fine. 799 00:54:02,539 --> 00:54:05,474 I will support anything you do. I will. 800 00:54:05,508 --> 00:54:10,646 But I'm worried about you, OK? And I think you need to take a break. I told you... 801 00:54:10,714 --> 00:54:14,717 I'd make sure nothing happens to you, and I'm gonna keep that promise the best way I know how. 802 00:54:18,321 --> 00:54:19,888 Right. 803 00:54:19,923 --> 00:54:23,726 Focus remains on New Chapel resident Abby Knight... 804 00:54:23,760 --> 00:54:26,495 for the murder of law professor Carson Howell. 805 00:54:26,529 --> 00:54:29,031 Knight, a former Chicago lawyer, 806 00:54:29,065 --> 00:54:32,134 is the owner of a Main Street flower shop called Boomers. 807 00:54:32,202 --> 00:54:35,971 It's not Boomers, it's Bloomers! 808 00:54:36,006 --> 00:54:38,841 Is this ever going to end? - Knight had a history 809 00:54:38,875 --> 00:54:41,977 of conflict with former law professor Howell. - You! 810 00:54:42,045 --> 00:54:44,046 You have no conscience! I don't even understand 811 00:54:44,080 --> 00:54:46,348 how you live with yourself! - Abby, come on, 812 00:54:46,416 --> 00:54:49,551 keep it in the courtroom. We feel vindicated. - Oh, I'm sure you do! 813 00:54:49,586 --> 00:54:52,288 - Dermabrir's exceeded all the regulations. - You're an animal! 814 00:54:52,322 --> 00:54:55,691 Oh! - A career-damaging courtroom lost to Howell, 815 00:54:55,725 --> 00:54:58,127 plus fingerprints found on the murder weapon 816 00:54:58,161 --> 00:55:00,396 has kept Knight under the microscope. 817 00:55:00,430 --> 00:55:02,931 Knight, who continues to run Boomers.. 818 00:55:02,966 --> 00:55:05,834 - Seriously, again? - Whoa, easy with the scissors! 819 00:55:05,869 --> 00:55:08,337 - However, with no other suspects, charges are soon to follow. 820 00:55:08,371 --> 00:55:10,706 Well, I have a public comment. 821 00:55:10,740 --> 00:55:14,143 It's Bloomers! - You know what, Nik? 822 00:55:14,177 --> 00:55:16,211 I think it's time I go public as well. 823 00:55:16,246 --> 00:55:19,848 If Marco calls, tell him... 824 00:55:19,883 --> 00:55:22,885 I... went to the dentist. - Are you sure? 825 00:55:22,919 --> 00:55:25,721 I am so sure. 826 00:55:28,124 --> 00:55:32,394 Hey, remind him that it's Bloomers, not...

She'd say: "Have faith, pussycat. 874 00:58:20,029 --> 00:58:22,931 "And please, please, please, 875 00:58:22,999 --> 00:58:25,434 tell Dad to step away from the ice cream." 876 00:58:28,071 --> 00:58:30,105 Dad... 877 00:58:33,276 --> 00:58:35,978 Fine. 878 00:58:36,012 --> 00:58:38,647 For Mom. 879 00:58:55,265 --> 00:58:57,933 What's this? 880 00:58:57,967 --> 00:59:00,369 Is Madam Columbo closing up shop? 881 00:59:00,403 --> 00:59:03,038 No, I'm just taking a little bit of a hiatus. 882 00:59:03,072 --> 00:59:05,974 And no, I'm not caving to the pressure, I just realized... 883 00:59:06,009 --> 00:59:09,778 I was neglecting my store, my family, my best friend. 884 00:59:11,247 --> 00:59:14,917 - And you're OK with Detective Reilly running the show? - No, 885 00:59:14,951 --> 00:59:18,587 but my sleuthing netted some great intel, 886 00:59:18,621 --> 00:59:22,858 so I figure I bought myself a little life insurance policy. - Which hopefully you won't need... 887 00:59:22,892 --> 00:59:25,360 to cash in. - Nik, that's beautiful! 888 00:59:25,395 --> 00:59:29,464 See, you are way too talented to spend time on revenge roses. - Thanks, 889 00:59:29,499 --> 00:59:32,134 but I think I'm really good at those too. 890 00:59:32,168 --> 00:59:36,672 I was so jealous when I saw these black roses from the other florist. Which is why, 891 00:59:36,706 --> 00:59:41,443 if you're OK with it, I wanna do a revenge roses marketing blitz. Up our social media presence, 892 00:59:41,477 --> 00:59:43,645 help put Bloomers on the map. - What, 893 00:59:43,680 --> 00:59:46,381 as something other than the home of the law school killer? 894 00:59:46,416 --> 00:59:49,084 Go for it. Knock yourself out. 895 00:59:49,118 --> 00:59:51,787 Just remember to keep the happy flowers a priority. 896 00:59:51,821 --> 00:59:53,755 I will be forever creeped out... 897 00:59:53,790 --> 00:59:56,925 when I see a black rose. Or a black pencil, for that matter. 898 00:59:57,927 --> 01:00:00,929 Hi, Bloomers. Uh, yeah. 899 01:00:00,964 --> 01:00:04,232 Oh, of course! Yes, we can do that, no problem. 900 01:00:04,267 --> 01:00:06,969 Um, I can check. 901 01:00:07,003 --> 01:00:09,838 Can't believe Barnes sent you black roses. 902 01:00:09,872 --> 01:00:12,674 Could he actually have a sense of humor? 903 01:00:12,709 --> 01:00:16,478 - More like a childish temper. - Mom, you stood up for yourself, 904 01:00:16,512 --> 01:00:19,581 just like you always told me to do. If Barnes wants to defend himself, 905 01:00:19,616 --> 01:00:22,884 he can do his own interview. - Yeah, that's right. 906 01:00:22,919 --> 01:00:25,454 By the way, Kenny said... 907 01:00:25,488 --> 01:00:28,624 that he thought your article was great and really smart of you to do. 908 01:00:28,658 --> 01:00:31,994 I think he was secretly happy that it made Barnes squirm a little. 909 01:00:32,028 --> 01:00:34,162 - So he's not a big Barnes fan either? - Hardly. 910 01:00:34,197 --> 01:00:36,431 Barnes doesn't let Kenny do anything. 911 01:00:36,466 --> 01:00:38,767 Won't let him help with lesson planning, won't let him help with the grades, 912 01:00:38,801 --> 01:00:42,437 nothing. Kenny can't seem to get away from guys like Barnes. 913 01:00:42,472 --> 01:00:45,907 - What do you mean? - Oh, well, 914 01:00:45,942 --> 01:00:49,244 he was just telling me about his dad. Like Barnes, he's a control freak. 915 01:00:49,278 --> 01:00:53,949 His dad wants him to join the family law firm, but Kenny doesn't want to. 916 01:00:53,983 --> 01:00:57,586 He wants to be his own person. - You really like this Kenny, huh? 917 01:00:57,620 --> 01:01:00,088 He's alright, 918 01:01:00,123 --> 01:01:04,359 but don't worry, Mom, I couldn't even imagine dating my TA. School's complicated enough. 919 01:01:04,394 --> 01:01:07,162 Especially with the murder and everything going on. 920 01:01:09,098 --> 01:01:10,966 Are you OK? 921 01:01:11,000 --> 01:01:14,836 You... Can you believe this? 922 01:01:14,904 --> 01:01:16,405 Hey... 923 01:01:16,439 --> 01:01:20,075 it's gonna be OK. Justice will prevail. 924 01:01:21,978 --> 01:01:24,579 - And where did you learn that? - I wonder. 925 01:01:28,051 --> 01:01:32,187 Here. For you. - Thank you. 926 01:01:32,221 --> 01:01:34,289 It'll be OK, Mom. 927 01:02:26,542 --> 01:02:28,944 - Jocelyn, hey! - Oh... 928 01:02:29,011 --> 01:02:31,680 - You OK? You look a little shaky. - Do you have a moment to talk? 929 01:02:31,714 --> 01:02:34,382 Yeah, absolutely. Yeah, come on. 930 01:02:34,417 --> 01:02:38,553 Can I get you anything? - Peace of mind would be nice. 931 01:02:54,737 --> 01:02:59,674 So why didn't you tell the police? 932 01:02:59,709 --> 01:03:03,311 There were too many reputations at stake. Bruce's, mine... 933 01:03:03,379 --> 01:03:05,781 and even though he's already gone, Carson's. 934 01:03:05,815 --> 01:03:08,483 Plus, Bruce made me swore that I would keep it to myself. 935 01:03:08,518 --> 01:03:11,353 Why tell me? Why now? 936 01:03:11,387 --> 01:03:13,655 Once I heard that interview with Abby Knight, I realized... 937 01:03:13,689 --> 01:03:15,957 that she could go to jail for a crime she didn't commit. 938 01:03:15,992 --> 01:03:18,226 A crime that I could be responsible for. 939 01:03:18,261 --> 01:03:21,129 I just couldn't keep it inside anymore. I had to tell someone. 940 01:03:21,164 --> 01:03:24,900 You were so kind to me last time, I... I just felt that I could trust you. 941 01:03:24,934 --> 01:03:28,170 Can I? - Of course you can trust me. 942 01:03:34,577 --> 01:03:38,580 Jocelyn, this is actually the person you should be telling this to. 943 01:03:38,614 --> 01:03:41,449 Do you know Abby Knight? - Oh... 944 01:03:41,484 --> 01:03:43,885 Hi. 945 01:03:47,757 --> 01:03:50,358 How... - Thanks, Jenna. 946 01:03:53,729 --> 01:03:57,599 How long were you and Carson Howell an item? - Almost a year. 947 01:03:57,633 --> 01:04:01,736 I was just so lonely with Bruce, but... I didn't want to divorce him either. 948 01:04:03,673 --> 01:04:06,708 Beneath all that bluster, Bruce is just a terribly sad and sensitive man. 949 01:04:08,678 --> 01:04:12,380 - It sounds like you finally did want to divorce him, though. - I was in love with Carson, 950 01:04:12,415 --> 01:04:14,516 not Bruce. 951 01:04:14,550 --> 01:04:16,918 I needed to make a stand, move my life forward, 952 01:04:16,953 --> 01:04:20,822 but... I guess it just wasn't meant to be. 953 01:04:24,427 --> 01:04:27,929 I want to Millston that morning to tell Carson that I loved him 954 01:04:27,997 --> 01:04:31,566 and I was gonna leave Bruce, and when I finally told him, 955 01:04:31,601 --> 01:04:35,136 he just... shut down. 956 01:04:35,171 --> 01:04:39,307 He actually seemed shocked that after all this time, 957 01:04:39,342 --> 01:04:41,543 I had such strong feelings for him. 958 01:04:41,611 --> 01:04:45,580 He ended it with me right then and there. I was devastated. I didn't know 959 01:04:45,615 --> 01:04:47,983 what to do. 960 01:04:48,017 --> 01:04:51,152 I tracked down Bruce in one of the classrooms and I made him speak with me 961 01:04:51,187 --> 01:04:53,588 and... I told him everything. 962 01:04:53,623 --> 01:04:56,324 I had never seen him so furious. 963 01:04:56,359 --> 01:05:00,528 He was so vulnerable and disappointed. And that's when Bruce 964 01:05:00,563 --> 01:05:04,699 made me swear that I wouldn't tell a soul. It was a terrible scene for everyone. 965 01:05:04,734 --> 01:05:09,304 I hung around the campus for about an hour or so, thinking, 966 01:05:09,338 --> 01:05:12,474 then I went back to Bruce's office to... 967 01:05:12,508 --> 01:05:15,076 I don't know, just talk, 968 01:05:15,111 --> 01:05:18,813 apologize, see if he'd calmed down. 969 01:05:20,816 --> 01:05:24,586 That's when I found out Carson was dead. - Think your husband killed him? 970 01:05:24,620 --> 01:05:27,856 I think he called Carson into his office and confronted him, 971 01:05:27,890 --> 01:05:31,593 and then they fought, and then Bruce ended up slamming that pencil into his neck. 972 01:05:33,195 --> 01:05:37,432 Bruce is a very precise man. - That's exactly what Belinda said. 973 01:05:37,466 --> 01:05:40,869 Jocelyn, you don't have any proof, right? 974 01:05:40,903 --> 01:05:44,940 Just a theory. One that I desperately hope is untrue, 975 01:05:44,974 --> 01:05:48,310 but... I'm also afraid that it might not be. 976 01:05:49,478 --> 01:05:52,547 Jocelyn, can we just back up a bit? After the murder, 977 01:05:52,581 --> 01:05:56,551 you said that when you went back to the law department, 978 01:05:56,585 --> 01:05:59,521 you bypassed the police and walked straight... 979 01:05:59,588 --> 01:06:04,592 into the building. Did you? - No, not exactly. 980 01:06:04,627 --> 01:06:07,095 For obvious reasons, I couldn't tell that cop... 981 01:06:07,129 --> 01:06:10,265 that I'd spent the last hour in a second floor bathroom... 982 01:06:10,299 --> 01:06:12,968 being sick to my stomach over everything. 983 01:06:13,002 --> 01:06:17,272 Which means that you were already in the building when the murder took place. 984 01:06:17,306 --> 01:06:20,608 What exactly are you trying to say, Ms. Knight? 985 01:06:20,643 --> 01:06:22,978 Only that... 986 01:06:23,012 --> 01:06:26,247 I completely understand why you kept all this from the police. 987 01:06:26,282 --> 01:06:29,517 Well, let's be clear. I wanted to love... 988 01:06:29,552 --> 01:06:32,120 Carson Howell, not kill him. 989 01:06:33,422 --> 01:06:35,557 I get it. 990 01:06:41,564 --> 01:06:45,066 Just because she didn't send the roses doesn't mean she didn't kill him. 991 01:06:45,101 --> 01:06:49,704 - It also doesn't mean she did. - She sure was quick to throw Barnes under the bus... 992 01:06:49,739 --> 01:06:53,108 for Howell's murder. - Come on, she said it's just a theory. And frankly, 993 01:06:53,142 --> 01:06:57,212 I think it's a plausible one. - So? 994 01:06:57,246 --> 01:07:00,081 - So what? - Where does it leave us? 995 01:07:01,984 --> 01:07:05,086 Well, obviously it's some new info. 996 01:07:05,121 --> 01:07:08,456 Maybe it's time to bring out the old suspect board. 997 01:07:08,491 --> 01:07:12,193 - Yes, yes, yes! Thank you! - Whoa! Thank you. 998 01:07:12,228 --> 01:07:15,096 Tomorrow morning, OK? Bloomers. Strategy meeting. 999 01:07:15,131 --> 01:07:17,999 I'll be there.

Please pay attention. 1009 01:08:34,810 --> 01:08:38,680 OK, look here. That's Howell. That's Walter Pierce, 1010 01:08:38,714 --> 01:08:42,750 from Dermabrir. Behind him is Kenny Lipinski. 1011 01:08:42,785 --> 01:08:46,221 - OK, so? - Kenny told me... 1012 01:08:46,255 --> 01:08:49,190 that he first met Pierce at Howell's memorial, 1013 01:08:49,225 --> 01:08:51,392 but this case was a year ago. 1014 01:08:51,427 --> 01:08:53,461 OK, why not say anything? 1015 01:08:53,496 --> 01:08:55,730 I don't know. Either he legitimately forgot... 1016 01:08:55,764 --> 01:08:59,167 or he's protecting Howell... or Pierce? 1017 01:08:59,201 --> 01:09:03,037 Or himself. 1018 01:09:03,072 --> 01:09:05,340 Sorry I'm late! I just... 1019 01:09:05,374 --> 01:09:07,542 Yes! 1020 01:09:07,576 --> 01:09:10,145 This is exciting! What changed? 1021 01:09:10,179 --> 01:09:13,515 Proof that Jocelyn and Howell were linked together. 1022 01:09:13,549 --> 01:09:16,951 Still a question about Belinda, but if everybody else's stories are changing, 1023 01:09:16,986 --> 01:09:19,787 why not hers, right? - Even if Reilly's already cleared her name? 1024 01:09:19,822 --> 01:09:21,990 Especially if Reilly's already cleared her name. 1025 01:09:22,024 --> 01:09:24,993 I think another trip out to Millston College is in order, 1026 01:09:25,027 --> 01:09:28,963 specifically to see Belinda. Wanna come with me, partner? 1027 01:09:28,998 --> 01:09:31,499 Name the time. 1028 01:09:31,534 --> 01:09:35,103 Later today? I don't know. I've got a ton of work to do, then I leave right for vacation. 1029 01:09:35,171 --> 01:09:39,073 Vacation? Um, I'd really only need a few minutes. 1030 01:09:39,108 --> 01:09:41,910 It'd really help, especially if you're going away. - I don't understand, 1031 01:09:41,944 --> 01:09:44,612 Ms. Knight. What more can I tell you? - I just have... 1032 01:09:44,647 --> 01:09:46,748 a couple more questions.

Bye. Ugh! 1036 01:10:00,529 --> 01:10:03,498 Well, I had a shipment scheduled for 4, but they're running late and I have to be here... 1037 01:10:03,532 --> 01:10:05,867 to sign for it. - Well, if we don't leave now, we'll miss Belinda. 1038 01:10:05,901 --> 01:10:08,436 She's going on vacation. Can you believe that? - Well, 1039 01:10:08,470 --> 01:10:10,905 people do take vacations, Abby. - While they're being investigated for murder? 1040 01:10:10,940 --> 01:10:14,375 That's only by you now. Let's remember that. Go ahead, I'll catch up as soon as I can. 1041 01:10:14,410 --> 01:10:16,578 Maybe we can talk to Kenny too. - Text me... 1042 01:10:16,612 --> 01:10:19,614 when you're on your way. - Alright, will do. Be careful, OK? 1043 01:10:27,523 --> 01:10:30,892 I'm sorry, but I have to get these letters out before I go. I can't talk after all. 1044 01:10:30,926 --> 01:10:34,429 Please, it really won't take a long time. Five minutes. Four minutes. 1045 01:10:34,463 --> 01:10:36,931 It won't take... Wait, three minutes. 1046 01:10:36,966 --> 01:10:39,133 Two.

Uh, what brings you here? 1115 01:15:41,637 --> 01:15:45,439 Oh, I have office hours in a bit. I figured I'd just come in... 1116 01:15:45,474 --> 01:15:49,343 and start packing up Howell's office. Someone's got to. 1117 01:15:49,378 --> 01:15:53,147 Is that Professor Howell's stationery? - Oh! Yeah. 1118 01:15:53,215 --> 01:15:56,317 Evidently, some of his old mail didn't go out, according to Belinda, 1119 01:15:56,351 --> 01:15:59,720 whom I came to see. But she's gone now, so... 1120 01:16:02,257 --> 01:16:06,227 They're, uh, they're evidently just rejection letters... 1121 01:16:06,261 --> 01:16:10,398 to the other students that didn't get the clerkship. The one Howell recommended you for. 1122 01:16:10,432 --> 01:16:14,068 That's interesting. I don't remember Howell mentioning anything about sending out... 1123 01:16:14,102 --> 01:16:17,238 personal notes. Or Belinda, even. 1124 01:16:17,272 --> 01:16:20,408 She did say that they must've just gotten lost in the stabbing.. shuffle. 1125 01:16:21,510 --> 01:16:24,478 Um, hey, Kenny, can I ask you a question? 1126 01:16:24,546 --> 01:16:29,684 You told me that you met Walter Pierce from Dermabrir for the first time... 1127 01:16:29,718 --> 01:16:32,219 at Professor Howell's memorial? - Yeah.

Can you really blame me... 1134 01:16:53,742 --> 01:16:56,377 for not wanting you to know that I did their legal work? 1135 01:16:56,411 --> 01:17:00,081 - I thought Howell handled it. - Well, officially, 1136 01:17:00,115 --> 01:17:03,184 yes, but I did all the briefs, I did all the research... 1137 01:17:03,218 --> 01:17:06,988 All Howell did was sign off on them. - What else did you lie about? 1138 01:17:09,691 --> 01:17:12,126 What are you talking about? 1139 01:17:12,160 --> 01:17:16,464 Why are you doing this? - Kenny, you can tell me.

Every brief, 1145 01:17:46,628 --> 01:17:50,331 every syllabus, right down to the most tedious task, just so he could look good. 1146 01:17:50,365 --> 01:17:52,900 What happened? 1147 01:17:52,934 --> 01:17:55,202 What hap.. he got greedy! 1148 01:17:55,237 --> 01:17:58,506 OK? He succumbed to the power and the money... 1149 01:17:58,540 --> 01:18:01,842 of the almighty... Kenneth Lipinski Sr. 1150 01:18:01,877 --> 01:18:05,980 Are you saying that your father bribed Howell not to give you the clerkship? 1151 01:18:06,014 --> 01:18:08,949 Let me tell you something about... 1152 01:18:08,984 --> 01:18:12,720 about the Lipinski family, OK? 1153 01:18:12,754 --> 01:18:15,556 Sons follow in their father's footsteps. 1154 01:18:15,590 --> 01:18:19,460 See, I'm supposed to take the reins of the family business, or a dynasty collapses. 1155 01:18:19,494 --> 01:18:24,098 This job was a once-in-a- lifetime opportunity for me. 1156 01:18:24,132 --> 01:18:27,568 Do you understand that?

How did you... - Sydney told me... 1171 01:19:12,547 --> 01:19:15,983 all about your flower shop.

Nobody has to know anything about this. 1181 01:19:42,811 --> 01:19:45,913 But killing Professor Howell does not change the fact... 1182 01:19:45,947 --> 01:19:48,549 that he gave the clerkship to someone else. 1183 01:19:50,552 --> 01:19:54,855 No, see, that's where you're wrong.
