Apparently, Rick and Molly Patterson, Amanda’s parents, came from Pellum Lake, and were supposed to take Amanda out for a Broadway show later in the day. The detectives find the luggage in a bathtub. The usual objects found in a wallet are present, but no cash. Sweeney is worried about letting the media find Amanda, especially because letting the killer see her on TV could spoil their investigation. Moreover, it can get disturbing for Amanda. As a result, Jane and Amanda get through the crowd in a laundry cart, and Sweeney slowly gets the media to turn its attention on him, as he holds a conference. Calderon, Evrard and Augie try checking if their theories are getting anywhere. A while later, the three of them agree to check for fingerprints and blood-stained gloves in the hotel’s stairwell. Dr. Adler explains that Amanda might be suffering from a single-blow trauma, as she is refusing to talk.
