Captain Gregson gets the case and calls in Sherlock and Joan. They also found the money on him. It leaves everyone confused. The equation on it is a formula used to calculate what’s owed to someone who sues, it’s what they are worth. The three go and speak to the man who created the equation.

Bell has narrowed the gun down a bit. Joan confronts Sherlock about renting her apartment. The Captain calls Sherlock. There’s been another attack but this time she survived.

Sherlock continues to analyze the case. Sherlock now thinks that Ms. Powell could be the killer. He explains why he rented her apartment. He worries her reaction is because of Andrew’s murder. He just wanted to make sure she wasn’t over-reacting. The sketch comes through on Sherlock’s phone. It looks like Dana Powell’s husband. He died in the airplane crash. She’s now their number one suspect. Dana’s gone on a shopping spree. A radio announcer says that the airline is going to pay out the claim and everyone will be paid equally.

Dana is about to kill her sister when the police knock on her door. Bell arrests her and interrogates her. Joan points out that her husband had symptoms of a brain tumor and then bought a gun. Sherlock explains why she went for the fixed sum amount. Back at the brownstone, Joan shows Sherlock the basement. But once he enters, she uses a nail gun to seal the entrance. She comes in from the outside and explains she has turned it into an office for herself. It allows a balance.
