  • They are searching for Holder blind since his phone dosn’t have GPS.

  • In the hospital Holder’s sister gives Linden a pack of matches he wanted her to have immediately . In the matches its says “11 AM Tomorrow”. Linden shows up to the location, it is the Indian girl who found Rosie’s backpack at the casino and also worked with her.
  • It is revealed that Rosie wasn’t a prostitute but a maid/waitress working under the table of the casino.
  • (Everyone got that one wrong)
  • Its is also revealed that the Ammonia Hydroxide found on Rosie’s body is is cheap powerful cleaning chemical they use at the casino.

  • Jamie finds a gun in Richmond’s desk.
  • Linden and Holder head to the police station to sneak Rosie’s casino key from evidence so  they can search the 10th floor for themselves.
Final Thoughts:
What a suspenseful episode as we impatiently waited to find out Holder fate. Sarah Linden’s character really showed alot depth and a side of her we haven’t seen as she fought to get a search going when Holder was missing. I rooted for her and she now feels more down to earth and that we as viewers can finally connect with her. A lot of very important details were revealed and we can finally say for now that the Indian Chief  played a huge role in it all. I along with many of you have gotten rather bored with the campaign story but am careful not to dismiss little details as I feel that in the end its all going to connect back to Rosie.
