The scene opens with Lightman looking at things from Africa. Foster walks in and is intrigued that Lightman is rehashing his time in New Guinea. Special Agent Dardis is there and Lightman talks to Emily on the phone. She tells that Zoe is gone and that she is going to stay with a friend. Lightman picks up that she is lying and tells her to have fun. Foster tells Lightman to let Emily have her secrets. Meanwhile, Dardis is waiting in the conference room and he tells that Danielle Stark was reported missing and later found murdered. Danielle’s mother Judge Kathleen Stark is grief stricken but can’t account for her whereabouts during the time that her daughter went missing.

Lightman starts to interview Kathleen and she is not that responsive to the questions that he is asking and says that they are not relevant. At the Lightman Group, Lightman talks about the signals that Kathleen is making on the video and compares it the Susan Smith case. Whereas Susan Smith is showing no emotion, Kathleen is showing it all. ..

Episode Quotes
Gillian: I'm meeting the deputy chief of NASA. One of their experimental jets crashed and they think the pilot's lying about what happened.
Cal: Oh, that's not surprising since the whole space program is based on lies.

Ria: You never told me about the eyebrow plucking thing. Where did you read about that?
Cal: Nowhere.
Ria: Why not?
Cal: Because it's complete crap.

Cal: 94th percentile. What did she do differently?
Ria: I can tell you one thing. She got murdered the day before she took the test.

Eli: Russian spies? Oh what's next? Duran Duran? Parachute pants? Because I love the eighties.

Cultural References
Eli: Emily? Long time, no see. You look terrible. Awful. Like Gene Simmons when it's really, really humid.

Gene Simmons is a musician from the band KISS.
