Plot

As Major and the player arrived in Daniel’s political office, they discovered the body of brothel owner Christina Paxton with her hands, mouth and eyes sewn shut. Per Ethan’s autopsy, she had been killed by having ink poured into her mouth before her mouth was sewn together, poisoning her. Ethan also noted that the killer sewed her eyes and hands together post-mortem. They first suspected mayoral candidate Daniel Willingham who claimed that he never asked for the victim’s services despite her persuasions, a brothel client Eric Caldon, who was attempted to be kicked out by the victim as well as former cabaret dancer Darina Lombardi, who claimed the victim had obligated girls to work for her, ruining their lives. They then learned that the victim had been spotted at the Clark Bridge, shortly before her death.

There, they discovered clues to add singer Alyson Belle, who hated what the victim was doing to the girls that worked for her. They also talked to Daniel’s girlfriend Jessica Montana, who punched the victim a few hours before the murder because she knew that Christina was trying to ruin Daniel’s chance of being the mayor. They then learned that someone was trying to burn the brothel which was discovered to be Eric. After stopping the potential arsonist, the team arrested Alyson for the murder.

After being confronted with the evidence, she broke down and told them that she used to be one of the girls who was working for the victim. After she left, she became a popular singer only to be blackmailed her exposing her secrets, which would completely ruin her reputation and life. She then started saying that they wouldn’t know the pressure of being perfect in this city and that the only way she would be able to keep her past secret was to murder Christina Paxton and making sure that everyone would know that she should've kept her hands to herself. Judge Brighton then sentenced her to 30 years in prison for the murder.

After the trial, Daniel came to the station and told us that he had seen someone distributing Mayor Oakley’s cards to peoples at the Clark Bridge to convince them to vote for him. When they player went there with Leigh Tempest, they found a bag that revealed that the card distributor was none other than Chief Ernest. When the duo confronted with it, he said that there wasn’t something bad in helping someone to be promoted, on which Leigh responded that it was indeed something bad as the act could be seen as corruption. Upon hearing what the senior detective told him, Thomas angrily told her that she shouldn’t disrespect him if she wanted to keep her job before going back to his office.

Meanwhile, an awkward Major came to the player asking for help. Upon hearing this, Janice asked the player if she could help with Major's problem. Then Major said that Summer had asked him for a date at a fancy restaurant but he forgot about his wolf charm which broke off in the political office. There, they found the broken charm, repaired it and gave it back to Major. After many thanks, he went to his date with Summer.

Later, the team were visited by politician Kendrick Clayton, who they arrested back in Bayside Avenue due to his link to the substance. Leigh and the player learned that Kendrick had been released on good behaviour and that he had also decided to run for mayor. To ensure that he wouldn’t create problems, the team decided to go listen to his speech the next day, which would take place in the Justice Day Park.
