— Holmes to Watson
The in the wake of Michael Rowan's death, Watson is questioned by FBI Agent Mallick. Watson's alibi is weak as she was at her parent's house, but only her mother was present. Mallick believes Watson killed Rowan after he invaded The Brownstone and attacked her as an act of obsession. Mallick plays Watson a recording of Rowan leaving an internet voicemail for William Bazemore when he was killed in which Rowan says "Joan." Watson asks for a lawyer.
