Joan goes to talk to Vince’s partner. The sales woman is brought in. She brings her lawyer too. The missing doctor had been selling pain pills to drug dealers. She lent him the pills to cover the inventory and after the audit he gave them back. Sherlock checked Vince’s gym as well. However, Sherlock thinks he’s on the run.

She does tell them that her husband spent $100,000 last month called the keep. It’s space in a luxury doomsday bunker. Did The Keep factor into his death. Sherlock wants to learn more about The Keep. They go to the office of The Keep. To go see it they have to turn over their phones. They ride in a vehicle that they can’t see out of. The two chat along the drive. It’s snowing at the bunker.

Sherlock points out all the issues with the place including the mold and fake food. He finds blood and a picked lock. Sherlock has a cell phone still and calls the Captain and sends their location. They bring the salesman/scam artist in for questioning. He says he has impingement syndrome so could not swing the axe. Fiona talks to Sherlock at the brownstone. She tells him she’s breaking up with him at the end of her speech. They go through the list of people who have bought space in The Keep. Joan has picked out a prime suspect. Sherlock has found Stahler, the suspect. He tells them he knew The Keep was a fraud. He’s actually a whole different person, a journalist blowing the whistle on The Keep being a fraud. Sherlock drags everyone back to the victims house. He has to check out the bugout bag he has. The item used to kill him is missing from his bugout bag. Sherlock now knows why Vince went to the bunker and with who. The partner is brought in. They ask him about the pill traffickers. Sherlock posits that the partners went to the bunker and that his partner committed the murder. They start to lay out the story and proof. Sherlock invites Fiona over. Sherlock pleads his case. He tells her about Moriarty. He goes on to explain he’s not very experienced in relationships but that she is special to him and he is making an effort. She likes what he says. She asks if Joan is home, he tells her no. She then tells him they should have sex now. He actually looks both shocked and surprised.
