Also, Holmes and Watson search for a motive behind three seemingly unconnected murders.
We speak with murderers on a regular basis, Mr. Reichenbach. Do you imagine any of them convinced us of their righteousness?
At The Brownstone, as Holmes makes napalm, Watson watches a tech talk featuring Odin Reichenbach. Joining her, Holmes decries Odin's oratory while Watson informs him that Odin has made a sizable contribution to their gun buy-back program and would like to meet her. Two women, Claire and Beth, wait at the finish line at a race through a large woods. Their friend Isabel collapses and dies just before reaching them. They see a knife sticking in her back. At the scene, Detective Bell questions Beth and learns the race had no set course. Believing it'll take days to find where Isabel was stabbed, Holmes interrupts and reports it was near Richmond Pond. While walking to the pond, Holmes explains that from fresh mud on Isabel's legs, he was able to deduce where she was stabbed. Bell and Holmes find a shack used to make moonshine, evidence that a shooting recently occurred there and that a body was weighed down and dumped in the pond.
