Megan talks to one of the survivors. She gets the name of a possible suspect. Megan tracks down the gun owner, it’s the deceased father of the suspect. Larry and Charlie join them. Megan and Larry flirt. They track him down to a cyber café. He’s armed and he fires. They shoot back and he’s gone. Forensics proves the blood on Justin’s boots matches two of the school victims. Don orders surveillance on all the members of the DMG. Larry, Amita and Charlie all discuss the current state of affairs in high schools with bullies and technology. They analyze more data and see a weird anomaly. Megan interviews Justin’s mom. She learns that an uncle that Justin looked up to passed. Amita, Charlie and Larry go to the high school. Amita talks about a gun incident at her high school. Charlie walks the path of the shooter and has Larry time him. Colby searched the storage locker and found ammo and school blue prints. At the office, they find a game of the school shooting on Justin’s laptop. Charlie comes in and gives them some disturbing news. There’s a third shooter. Megan and David go back to the high school, to try and figure out what’s going on. They want the information on members of the DMG, but all those parents have gotten lawyers to protect their students. Megan bring more files to Charlie, Amita and Larry. Charlie and Amita make a quick exit. Larry gets brave and asks Megan out.

The gun he had doesn’t match the missing weapon. Colby has found enough evidence to show he was hacked. Larry tells Charlie he finally made a reservation for he and Megan. Charlie gets an idea. Shooter number three acted very different then the first two. He’s hunting specific people to kill. It’s now date night for Larry and Megan. They discuss their high school experience. Also, how they wound up where they are. Megan meets with don about a new idea that Larry inspired. There has to be a common denominator with shooter three’s victims. The only link is a party. Karen seems to be a common link. She has a wifi pda too. Also, they found evidence she has met with Price at a motel several times. Megan and Colby meet with Karen’s mom. Karen tells them that the three who were killed, they raped her at the party. They arrest her. David, Colby and Megan go to arrest one of the guys who raped her. He tries to resist and Colby drops him. Back at the house, Charlie and Don discuss what happened. Don takes Charlie out to eat.

She learns that a psychic led them to the scene. They take in the psychic for interview. He tries to play Megan and she does not put up with it. Charlie joins them at the office, he doesn’t believe the psychic is real. David and Colby think the three dead women are here illegally and they may not be able to ID them. Charlie runs into the psychic at the elevator and they have a dust up, to put it mildly. Back at the scene, the techs pull a tire print. In the cafeteria, Larry and Charlie have a discussion about psychics. David and Colby talk to one of the park rangers. They spread out and search the areas around the area. They see a truck that could have the tires that match the tread left at the scene. When they look closer, the tires match and he has items like those were left at the scene. They take him in and show him crime scene photos. He works for a company that helps those coming into the country. He tells them the statues were bad luck totems. Megan learns the psychic was in the CIA. David and Colby update Don on all the possible suspects. Charlie and Larry are playing air hockey in the garage when Megan arrives. Larry winds up having the information she’s looking for. What she says about Kraft leaves both of them a little surprised. David and Colby go to visit one of the private border guard. They convince him to share his roster. At Don’s office, Megan grills the psychic to prove he is. He got everyone wrong. The odds are 1 in 33.5 million. Charlie and Larry go over the video. They fight. At the office, they are still struggling to identify the victims. The autopsies come in. The times are all off. They visit the psychic, he’s been getting visions but they are hazy. He thinks they could be pregnant. Charlie goes to the office and gets mad at seeing Kraft (the psychic). Charlie questions him about the test. He points out Kraft’s cheating.

In the garage, Charlie is working on his equations when Alan needs some help. They have a discussion about rationality and irrationality. Don comes in and he and Charlie have a disagreement. Charlie takes himself off the case. The psychic keeps giving them vague clues that lead nowhere. Charlie surprises everyone as he storms in with an answer. He’s got three areas that may have others who crossed with one of the victims. Colby finds someone who knows one of the victims and gets a name. They get enough information to identify all three of them. Megan learns that two more girls from the same city are now missing. They could be acting as drug mules. At the house, Alan is shocked at these girls acting as drug mules. Charlie starts breaking down the math on transporting drugs and how it all connects. Megan comes in and they found one girl but the other one crossed. Turns out the man helping people crossing is actually behind it. Charlie is able to narrow down where she could be so they can do an air search. Colby already has visual contact on the suspect, but not the girl. They corner him and he tries to run. David tackles him. They finally get him to break. It’s a shed and the girl is there, tied up. Megan gets a call from the hospital. They got all the drugs out of her and she is going to be ok. The brothers come back to the house, still fighting. While they fight, their mothers picture falls off the wall. It stops the fight. Later that night, Megan calls home to talk her to dad but he’s not home.

The Ligo tunnel runs all the way under the track, which is 4 kilometers away. Don hears metal falling and he and Colby start running down the tunnel. Topside, Megan and David catch the two topside. Don gives chase to Ron and catches him. At Don’s office, Ron spills his guts. Don shows up at the house, but no one is home. He finds all the music on the table. In the garage, Charlie and Alan talk about his mom/his wife. They hear the piano. Don is playing some of the music. They both take a moment to cherish it.

At the scene, they continue to investigate. At the house, Charlie and Larry are analyzing the ice melt rate. David and Colby go to visit the delivery man. He tells them he saw a private ambulance. There are no matching 911 logs, so the ambulance is a mystery. It’s finally tracked to an ER. The doctor takes Megan to the morgue and shows her a body with a kidney removed. Her blood matches the blood at the hotel. Megan and Amita go to visit Santi at a jail. The dead girl is not her sister, but one of four girls brought over to sell a kidney. She escaped but went back to find her sister. Someone did take their name off the transplant list. Megan goes to talk to the doctor who worked with that patient. The doctor tells her about kidney village in India. The patient is too sick to talk, so Megan requests all the paperwork. Amita appears in Charlie’s office, clearly shaken. He lets her talk for a while. She wants to help but doesn’t know how. He suggests her grandmother. Her eyes light up, she kisses him, thanks him and takes off. David and Colby go to take to the ambulance driver and he runs. They pursue the ambulance driver. The pursuit ends with the ambulance t-boning a taxi and flipping over. The ambulance driver is dead. Amita takes Charlie to visit Santi. Charlie has to rush off. Amita tells her about what she does. Her grandmother sent her prayer items. Colby and David run into a dead end on the ambulance and ask Charlie for help. Charlie points out mileage as a factor. He can use the mileage to narrow down where the driver went that wasn’t logged. David is skeptical. Don arrives at the house to find his dad. Alan tells him about a friend who died of kidney failure. Charlie and Larry are plotting the ambulance log. University General Hospital is where the map leads them. Michael Tocheck comes up. In the morgue there are five bodies, but only paperwork for four. When David lifts the blanket it’s another Indian girl. She was stripped of a lot more than just her kidney. Charlie teaches them about the optimization protocols for transplants. Sadly, Santi’s data doesn’t match anyone on the transplant list. Megan arrives. She has a disc with more patients on it from Tolchek’s computer. There’s a perfect match. Don and Megan visit him. His daughter was not aware. Megan pays the daughter a visit. She tells her the last person to get one of these transplants died of a massive infection. She gives Megan a location. They get there just before he cuts her open. Don arrests him. Amita goes to visit Santi and brings her sister. It’s a happy reunion. Back at the house, Amita has brought dinner for everyone. They ask about the girls. Amita is using her award money to pay for them to go back to school. Amita is also going to take a trip to India with her grandmother.
