Plot

After the team discovered that an assassin had taken their name from a serial killer who killed sixteen years ago, Spencer and the player decided to go for a stroll along a woodland trail to find out more. However the duo of detectives found the body of hunter Samson Mortaxe, his head smashed open. Alexandre then confirmed that the victim died from blood loss due to a single crack to the skull. They then found clues to suspect mountain cyclist Kiki Chamberlain, hiker Andrew Robertson and animal ranger Alexandro Moon in the murder. They also discovered that the killer was at the victim's cabin after his murder before they were informed by Valentina that the victim visited some flooded ruins before his death.

They then investigated the flooded ruins where they found clues to suspect former Hellhound cultist and gothic girl Ingrid Jameson and Spencer's best friend and journalist Molly Hooper before they discovered the killer was part of the Historical Society in Stonemoor. They then learned that Alexandro tore up Samson's fur jacket and that Andrew was Samson's foster brother before they learned that a bear was tearing up the victim's cabin. After Valentina and the detectives was able to fend off the bear, they found Molly cursing the victim nearby, learning that Samson was refusing to help her with a survival wilderness article she was writing. After they swept the victim's ruined cabin and the flooded ruins again, they soon found enough clues to incriminate Alexandro as Samson's killer.

They then confronted the animal ranger they had known for so long on the woodland trail, where the young ranger denied killing Samson, saying that he was no murderer. However when Spencer asked him about tearing the victim's jacket, Alexandro snapped and started crying, telling them that he couldn't understand what had happened. They then took him back to the blimp where Valerie talked to Alexandro while the detectives watched. They soon learned that the animal ranger had confronted Samson about killing the animals in the district and Samson denied killing them for money. However soon after, Alexandro felt a prick of pain in his neck and he then passed out. Soon after, he soon found himself next to Samson's cold dead body, with a bloodstained rock in his hand. He then realized his mistake after he saw the bleeding wound in the victim's cracked head and he fled the scene, finding out about the flooded ruins after finding a map in the victim's cabin and hiding them to wash away his sins. Valerie then decided to write a report for Judge South that someone must've interfered with Alexandro by drugging him to commit murder, leading the judge to order immediate psychological evaluation for Alexandro while he remained in custody. Afterwards, a panicking Natalie Piché came to the blimp, demanding to see Alexandro.

They then calmed down Natalie and told her about what had happened to Alexandro. She then told them that she was determined to help the one she loved like a son. She and the detectives then hurried back to the woodland trail where Samson was killed and found a broken needle at the scene that they sent to Alexandre and Fleur to analyze while they examined Alexandro's health. The combined efforts of Valerie, Alexandre and Fleur helped the team confirm that Alexandro was indeed drugged by someone and forced to commit murder. Alexandre then confirmed that the drug used on Alexandro had similar components used on Daniel Hartmann when he was kidnapped back in Crimson Canyon. They then concluded that Alexandro was forced into murder by the kingpin's assassin. They then talked to Natalie about getting Alexandro safety and she told them that she had a summer home in the city of Fairmount. After Judge South approved the extradition, Chief Flanagan then called the Fairmount PD to organize safety protocols for Alexandro's safety to Fairmount and in Natalie's summer home. Profiler Zander Lee then came to take Alexandro back to France and have him kept in Natalie's summer home, Natalie promising to Alexandro that she would call him every day.

Meanwhile, Molly Hooper came to the station to tell them that she wanted to talk to them. She then told the player and April that she thought about what the detectives had found out about the kingpin's assassin and their hidden aliases behind the serial killer she and Spencer had looked for sixteen years ago. She then told them that she knew information about the serial killer and she then directed them to the victim's cabin as she had lost the newspaper she had there. They then found the newspaper in the snow and restored the faded text to find out that it was an obituary that noted the death of Molly's parents. They then talked to Molly about her parents' death and she confessed that she was sure that the Mountain Murderer was behind the death of her parents and she had decided to investigate with her best friend Spencer all those years ago. She then told them that while she couldn't remember what happened on the expedition, she had left a series of recordings at her old family's cabin in the mountains before handing the detectives the keys to the cabin.

After all the events, Chief Flanagan told the team that they would need to hurry to investigate Molly's old family cabin and recover the recordings she and Spencer recorded all those years ago.

Sixteen years ago, Molly and Spencer trekked through the chilly forest of Granite Meadow, Molly talking about how the police found her parents mauled to death inside their home in the city that shone down below in the dark deep night. Spencer then patted his best friend's shoulder and promised that they would avenge her parents and uncover the Mountain Murderer's mystery, eventually finding the Hooper family's cabin, as Molly unlocked the front door to reveal new mysteries...
