Plot Overview

Patricia assembles information on Charlie Josephs for a conference she has been asked to speak at. During this, she begins to look at evidence surrounding his murder, which causes problems for Leo who's already under pressure to wrap up the case.

Danny gets into trouble and Mick keeps his distance by helping Wintson on a case of the death of a male prostitute found by the Spanish banks.


Arc Advancement


  • Patricia is gathering information for her presentation at a homicide conference coming up in Seattle.
  • The narc's body is found in the freezer of Danny's freezer with a tape recorder in his boot.
  • Danny is arrested by the RMCP.
  • It's found that Charlie Josephs was retrained with handcuffs before his murder and that Goose Feathers is a tribal officer. Leo meets privately with Goose and he agrees not to mention pointing him to Josephs while Goose agrees to claim he was in Calgary at the time of the murder with vouches and possibly affidavits if necessary.


  • Winston begins working as an assistant coroner.
  • After his arrest, Kosmo is upset to learn about Danny's criminal past and that he lied to her.
  • Dominic is worried that Patricia is leaving Vancouver for a job offer. He confronts her and she assures him she will tell him if an attractive enough one comes up and that she has no intention of taking Gabriella away from him.


  • Patricia conjectures that the mysterious red-headed torso that showed up in the morgue might have also been frozen and Chick had earlier noted the meat saw in the same freezer.
