While Nichols investigates Fern as a suspect in Quinn's murder, Dass grapples with a troubling question: was Harrow involved? Despite his clean record, she finds herself doubting the man she loves. Nichols dismisses Harrow as a suspect after seeing the QIFM staff entry log, which proves Harrow was at work when Quinn disappeared. But when Simon sees the log, he notices something amiss and investigates. An IT administrator then informs him that on the night in question there was a server outage.

Meanwhile, the death of Stan Wagner, a Czech resident at Jack Twine's nursing home, captures Jack and Harrow's interest. When Harrow and Simon examine the body, they find evidence of anoxia (lack of oxygen), and a small, wet feather from a pillow in his windpipe: proof that he was murdered. Jarred Rallings, a caregiver at the home with overt racist and xenophobic leanings, becomes a suspect, but Harrow isn't certain that Rallings is the culprit.

Harrow's investigation is interrupted when Fern's ex-boyfriend, Callan, is arrested. Nichols tries to use Callan to get to Fern.

Dass follows a hunch of her own. She watches CCTV footage of Fern at the pawnshop on the night Quinn went missing, and she discovers a key piece of evidence in Quinn's murder.
