However, before Laura left, Agent Alehandro Parillo stopped by and flirted with her. Jake saw the whole thing.

When Laura and Billy got to the bus, they found out that it was rented by a bunch of guys who just wants to have a good time. The bus guy told them that the guys went home around 12, and he picked some hot girls he saw on the street at a male strip club.

Laura headed to Danielle, and she told her that they all went to a strip club, but Julie disappeared. She also told Laura that Julie sold all of her items to her sugar daddy in New Jersey for her to become a top seller.

Their next step was Julie’s invoiced. All of the invoices were mailed at a storage locker. Meredith and Billy went to the storage unit, and they were surprised to find out some illegal cock-fighting going on. They broke it, and when they got to the locker, they found all of the products there and the wall was covered in photos of Margo. There’s also a writing that says “The Lies Behind Garden & Glow.”

They learned the truth behind Julie’s identity. She’s actually a journalist who’s making a story on Margo to expose her. It turned out that her obsession ran deep because Margo ripped her mom off, and Julie’s out for revenge. They went to Margo, and she lawyered up and told them that Julie came to her the night of the murder. She told Julie about her mother. Margo admitted that she offered Julie some cash in exchange of her silence, but Julie didn’t take it. It turned out that there’s another person in the next room who heard the whole exchange, Heidi, who would do anything for Margo. She was the one who tracked Julie and killed her.
