Plot

With Felix and his husband Elias Stanford on their honey moon, Katelyn and the player headed to the local opera after Chief Wakefield told them of a homicide that occurred there. They then headed to the top opera box and found the body of notorious critic Martha Seawall, her eyes removed and replaced by opera binocular lens. Katelyn and the player then started investigating Martha's murder, discovering that the victim wrote a review on opera director Leo Montgomery's recent play, describing it in a negative connotation. They then investigate the stage where the victim was courteous to take a tour of before the murder took place, suspecting the lead performer, Ingrid Kirkway, who was in tears that the performance is on hold since she was ready for her first ever play as lead actress, and make-up artist Lexi Barra, who despised the victim because of her critiques on her make-up designs, saying that they are more blinding than the glitter she uses. As Katelyn and the player reviewed how Martha wasn't the best person, they were informed by Skylar, saying that a familiar face wanted to meet them at a nearby café.

They then headed to the Dancing Queen Café, where they found a familiar aristocrat Artemis Monaco, who told them that she knew Martha and some of her secrets. They then asked her about Martha's secrets and Artemis explained that the victim had divorced a husband who had left Evergrace, which made the victim bitter. They then suspected Artemis in the murder, before suspecting café owner Bruno Antony in the murder, adding the killer's knowledge of tango to their profile. They then discovered Lexi's plan to spike the victim's makeup with poison and Ingrid's rebuttal to the victim by throwing a brick at Martha's window. Soon after, Skylar came to the team and told them that she had discovered Martha's ex-husband to be Leo Montgomery. They then confronted Leo about being Martha's ex-husband and he claimed that he broke up with the victim because their love for each other was just not the same anymore. He then ended their marriage, divorced Martha and left Evergrace before returning years later. He then told them that he would not kill his ex-wife, despite she being an opera critic. Soon after, they found out that the victim was former friends with Artemis and that Martha criticized Bruno's "craftsmanship" when it came to brewing coffee. In the end, the detectives found the murder weapon to be a garden trowel before incriminating Ingrid in the brutal homicide.

Ingrid then confessed to the crime, telling them that she was forever jealous of the victim’s “so-called” fame due to her criticism. She then told them that she had been forever jealous of other people rising to become famous people while she remained stuck as a lowly lead performer at the opera. She then confessed that she paid the victim to criticize the other famous singers and dancers at the opera poorly to degrade and sully their reputation so she could finally be in the spotlight she was jealous of and believed to deserve. However that night, she found out that Martha was planning to scandalize Ingrid’s reputation and flee with the money that the performer paid her off with. Furious and jealous of the victim’s influence on other people, she then confronted Martha, knocked her out and removed her eyes before replacing them with opera binocular lens to prove how sightless and soulless her eyes and life was. The lead performer was then sent off to prison where she received a fifty year sentence for bribery and premeditated murder from Judge Dosett. Soon after the trial closed, Cameron told the player and Felix that Kyndall had wanted to see them.

After the trial, Katelyn and the player then went to see her sister in prison, Kyndall then telling her sister that she wanted to make it up to her sister. Katelyn then told her sister that she didn't trust her yet, but she was willing to hear what she wanted to say. Kyndall then told them that the criminal organization was trying to infiltrate and remove the two mayoral candidates in order to gain power in Evergrace. Disbelieving of the information, Katelyn then reluctantly went with the player to the opera where Kyndall claimed that someone in the opera was allied with the organization. They then found a threat that could've made it look like Dave Whiston was threatening Jay Monaco into stepping out of the election. They then also found ink bottles at the opera that helped Sophia incriminate Lexi as the insurgent in the opera. They then confronted Lexi about the fake threat and Lexi told them it was for the better of Evergrace. They then informed Mayor Whiston, who told them that since the election was three days away, he would not step down to criminals.

Meanwhile, Cameron and the player went to see Artemis on her request, the aristocrat asking the duo to help her brother Jay in a trial that involved her niece, Ashe Monaco, in a suppoused arson case. They then returned to the Dancing Queen café, where they found the case file inside Artemis's briefcase. Cameron then analyzed the case, investigating the scene of the crime with Seamus, before informing the player that the evidence was false against Ashe. They then gave the case files and evidence that proved Ashe's innocence to Jay, Jay believing that Dave planted the fake evidence to sully his chances. They then talked to Artemis about criminal actions surrounding Jay, and she told them that she would not let the police destroy her brother's chances of winning the mayoral election like "those people" did. Cameron then told the player as they left Artemis's residence that he suspected that "those people" were from the organization.

After all the events, Chief Wakefield spoke to the detectives the following day about the possibility that the organization was trying to undermine Dave and Jay in order to gain Evergrace for their own plans. Then Shawn got a phone call, his hand shaking as he listened to the caller and putting the phone away. He then told the detectives that his friend, courthouse clerk Denise Conway, had been found murdered at the courthouse.
