Plot

Upon the discovery that Lawrence Osborne had been released from prison, Connor told the team to head to the hotel where he was staying to confront him. When they arrived, Riya and the player were searching the grounds of the hotel when they heard a deafening crash from the foyer. The pair raced into the foyer, only to discover the body of author Naomi Harris, who was staying in the hotel, crushed under a chandelier. Nia confirmed that Naomi was killed following injuries sustained by the chandelier falling, before the pair informed a saddened GPA historian Imran Haddid of his friend's death. They also questioned agent Shreya Stark, The Divine Purpose initiate Keanu Lahela, and scientist Aida Ashridge. Anthony and Anya then told the pair that Lawrence was attempting to leave the hotel.

The pair raced to stop Lawrence fleeing and once they confronted him, they questioned him on the murder. They also found reason to suspect the newly-instated leader of The Divine Purpose Aurora Garcia. The investigation also exposed that Naomi wanted to fire Shreya as her agent and that Aida and Naomi had disagreed on the ideals of humanitarianism. Mid-investigation, Penelope told the pair that Imran had locked himself in his library. Eventually, Riya talked Imran out of the library, where he confessed that he'd fallen in love with Naomi but never had the courage to tell her. After sending Imran to Spencer, they found reason arrest Shreya for the crime.

Shreya tried to deny the accusations but eventually confessed to killing Naomi, insisting that Naomi had to die. Shreya reluctantly admitted that she was having money problems and had started stealing from her clients. When Naomi found out that Shreya had been stealing from her, she fired her and threatened to go to the police. Panicked about Naomi's threats, Shreya drowned her sorrows in the hotel bar, only to be approached by a rich man in a suit. The murderous agent confessed that this man made her see that Naomi dying was the only way out of her problem, so she set a trap for Naomi in the hotel foyer. When Naomi was underneath the chandelier, Shreya released it, causing it to fall and crush Naomi. After hearing enough, they sent her to trial where an angry Judge Armstrong sentenced her to forty years in prison for theft and murder.

Post-trial, Penelope told the team that she'd seen Imran running in the direction of the hotel while giving her son, Oscar, a tour of Nairobi. After searching the hotel, Riya and the player found Imran by the crime scene. Imran confessed that he needed to see where Naomi had died for some closure before hugging Riya. Imran admitted that being with Naomi was the closest he'd felt to having a family, prompting Riya to say that the GPA were Imran's family as well. After this, they attended Naomi's memorial, where they placed a stone in her memory under a tree in the hotel garden. Imran then said his goodbyes to her and vowed to complete the book they were writing in her memory.

Meanwhile, believing Lawrence to be the man who inspired Shreya to kill, Bradley, Takagi and the player confronted him. A snarky Lawrence denied the accusations, prompting the trio to search the parking lot to find Naomi's diary. After sending it to the lab, they discovered that Naomi had overheard Lawrence talking on the phone about having a medical facility cleared out. With this evidence, they headed back to the hotel and found Lawrence's phone, which enabled Takagi to discover that Lawrence had paid poacher Arno Adhiambo to clear out the medical facility and take the equipment to his camp in Maputo. With no time to waste, they jetted off to Arno's camp to arrest the poachers for helping Lawrence and covering up the Zodiac's schemes.
