Plot

After hearing the explosion at the bank, the player and Faith rushed to the bank, only to discover the vault empty except for Sasha Sharp's body, mirror shards stabbed into her bleeding eyes. Melissa confirmed that Sasha was killed instantly when the shards penetrated her eyes and brain. After further investigation of the scene, wrestler Freddie Maestro was suspected and arrested for his involvement in the heist. The pair also suspected the victim's assistant Abigail Chase and billionaire Christopher Goodman who owned the robbed vault. While the pair recapped the case thus far, Jackson Sharp walked into the headquarters telling them that they had got it wrong and that his sister wasn't a member of the heist team.

Jackson explained that he had uncovered Sasha's diary and discovered that Sasha had unearthed the heist plot and planned to expose it but had been threatened with death. He further explained that the diary detailed how Sasha had left the folder of information outside the jazz club so the team could find it. Jackson also told the team that Sasha mentioned the heist having an escape route through the sewers, resulting in the team searching there and suspecting mathematician Sebastian Crane before hearing from a bruised Shane, saying that he'd been attacked by a hooded figure in the sewers. When the pair arrived at the sewers, they discovered that Sebastian had attacked Shane after he spotted Sebastian moving bags of money in the sewers. Finally, the team uncovered Sasha's killer as Shane's attacker, Sebastian.

Sebastian initially denied involvement but confessed when faced with the overwhelming evidence. He explained that while he and Freddie were robbing the bank, Sasha interrupted them and begged them to stop. Realizing what he had to do, Sebastian ordered Freddie to grab and hold Sasha in place while Sebastian retrieved a hand mirror from Sasha's bag and smashed it, using the shards to stab Sasha through the eyes repeatedly. The sinister mathematician then started laughing manically, insisting that Sasha was an idiot for trying the three of them. Faith soon realized what Sebastian said and confronted him, asking who the third member was. Sebastian then exclaimed that he'd said too much and was taken to trial. He was sentenced to life imprisonment by Judge Price. When the pair arrived back at the headquarters, they were approached by Jayden who exclaimed that Freddie's prison cell was empty.

After hearing the bad news, they asked Jayden what happened. Jayden confessed that he was about to escort Freddie from the holding cell to prison but when he arrived, Freddie was missing and the cell was empty. Due to the heist crew hiding the money in the sewers, the team soon headed there and eventually found Freddie aiming a gun at them. Freddie then fired a warning shot at the two, resulting in Faith shooting him in the shoulder. She then asked how he escaped and Freddie confessed that the third heist crew member assisted him before he was taken away and sent back to his cell.

Afterwards, Johnathon Sanderson asked for the player's help urgently. He explained that he planned to propose to Shane but had lost the ring at the bank when the explosion occurred. The player and Johnathon headed to the bank lobby and searched the area and found the engagement ring. Johnathon then called Shane and asked him to meet him at the park, where all the team were waiting. The architect then proposed to Shane who immediately said yes before kissing him. Johnathon then invited the team to their engagement party, resulting in Jayden asking Abigail to go as his date. Abigail reluctantly accepted and the party began with Johnathon confessing that he had to leave for an unknown reason. Finally, after the party ended, Jayden and the player decided to escort a drunken Shane home. Partway through the journey however, the car broke down by an oasis in the desert. When the player and Jayden got out to look for any nearby towns, they found Johnathon's body lying in the water underneath the moonlight...
