He determined the car was accelerating when it hit her. After going through her computer they find a lot of photos. Charlie thinks there are messages hidden in the photos. The key card on the victim was traced to an apartment that was hers. There’s a video camera and Colby gets to go through the video. Colby recognizes a visitor. Charlie and Larry are decoding all the images. They again discuss working together and Larry points out how Charlie has been going in many new directions, but he hasn’t.

He brings up the paper. They have a little discussion. Don and his team learn that Carter has gone on the run. Charlie and Amita are asked by Megan to try and figure out where Carter is going next.

They box him in in the tunnel. The cab driver gets out. Once they secure him they go for the passenger, but it’s a fake. Colby finds him at his boat.
