When the team arrived in Las Vegas, Bradley and Takagi decided to wander round the city while the player and Riya attached the recording device to Dayiu. The pair soon sent Dayiu into the Dragon's Den casino to meet with casino owner Lynette Lovelle. Suddenly, the pair heard screaming sounds and rushed into the casino to investigate. There, they found the body of professional gambler Freesia Frostine, casino chips stuffed down her throat, with Dayiu nowhere in sight. The pair first questioned Lynette Lovelle, croupier Marshall Rodwell and President James Marsden before a drunken Takagi and Bradley entered the plane laughing, revealing they'd got married at a drive-through chapel.

As the pair were shocked by the reveal, they also confessed that the priest said he had spotted a woman matching Dayiu's description. As Connor sent them to sober up, the pair questioned chapel priest Orlando Rivera as well as arresting Dayiu, who insisted that they let her go. Anastasia then declared that Marshall had married Freesia hours before her death. The pair first spoke to Marshall who explained that he didn't say they were married as he knew how it'd look. He then started sobbing and confessed that she was the love of his life. Finally, they arrested Lynette for murder.

Lynette refused to admit the truth but eventually confessed, saying that Freesia should have kept her mouth shut if she didn't want to die. When asked what she meant, Lynette explained that Freesia had been caught cheating in the casino and that she offered her a choice: be kicked out the casino and have her professional gambling career ruined or do drug runs for her. In a bid to get out of the ultimatum, Freesia threatened to go to the police, prompting Lynette to snap. She knocked Freesia out and stuffed her mouth with casino chips to signal her silence, dumping her body in the casino as a message to anyone thinking of crossing her. In court, Lynette was sentenced to life imprisonment by Judge Armstrong for drug dealing and murder.

Post-trial, Bradley and Takagi requested to speak with the player about their marriage. The pair hurriedly expressed their regret and admitted that they had filed for an annulment, but had lost the documents along the strip. The trio soon headed back to the strip where they found the documents, sending them to Anya for verification. The pair then signed the documents and handed them to lawyer Amanda Prince to start the annulment process.

Meanwhile, Riya and the player spoke to Lynette in prison about the hallucinogenic drug in circulation. In a bid for a reduced sentence, Lynette told them that she was the head of a drug empire and had recently been approached by an anonymous contact, who paid her to use her drug runners to spread the hallucinogenic drug. She then told them that she kept documents of her side business in the casino, prompting them to head there and find them. Anya then confirmed that the documents confirmed Lynette's story, admitting that the drugs were sent to Los Angeles, Las Vegas and other major cities. Anya then revealed that Lynette collected the drugs from a location in Rusthollow, a city in Texas. With no time to waste, Connor told the team to set a course to Rusthollow to shed light on who was behind the hallucinogenic drug scheme.
