Jane and Maura arrive at the crime scene. Maura notices that the victim suffered from a hard blow to the head.

Frankie tells Korsack that they found the key to the cuffs between the mattress and bed frame. Nina tells them about the victim, Ronald Wallace. It turns out that the guy liked withdrawing huge amounts of money from his account.

Maura tells Jane that the victim died from blunt force trauma. She shows her a diagram and Jane whines when she sees it. They conclude that he was murdered.

Jane and Korsack interviewed Ronald’s wife Linda. Jane tells her that they suspect her husband was murdered. She recalls that there was a note on their door, which left Ronald upset a month ago.

Maura admits that she misses Jack. She tries to find ways to get in touch with him. Jane offers her some activities to keep her mind away from him.

At the Connecticut police station, Jane receives a call from Korsack. She sees a photo of a man and asks to pull up his paper work. Nina finds out Ron used his middle name, Allan Wallace.


Jane heads to the address. She knocks on the door, but nobody answers. A woman named Cynthia arrives and Jane asks if she knows Allan. She says he’s her husband. Jane tells her about the other wife. She tells her that they’ve been married for 18 months.

Back at the station, Maura shows them a bat, which resembled the footboard. She asks Jane to hit the dummy. She fails to hit the mark. Meanwhile, Nina runs a background check on Cynthia and finds out she used to be a softball player.

While checking the toy, she notices the photos of Cynthia and Linda and she suddenly realizes something.

The next morning, Frankie brings Cynthia into the interrogation room. Jane shows her the video when Linda confessed about the note and put all the blame on her.

Jane wonders if Cynthia was smart enough. Turns out she kept a recording of their conversation. Frankie arrests Linda for the murder of Ronald.
