Plot

After discovering that the thief had been to the Clark estate, Faith and the player raced there only to find the body of estate owner Rodrigo Clark, strangled in his stables. Per Melissa, it was confirmed that Rodrigo was strangled with a thin rope. The team labelled the victim's wife Liza Clark, lawyer Laura Spear and CEO Alexander Prancer before hearing of a break-in at the housekeeper's shack. There, they suspected housekeeper Rupert Colbain and creepy lady Ursula Bane. Ursula was soon arrested for the murder.

Upon confrontation, Ursula confessed that she had killed Rodrigo but he deserved it for the years of endless misery he had caused her. The killer explained that Rodrigo was her ex-husband and that they were happily married until he started cheating on her Liza. In order to get rid of Ursula, he kicked her out with nothing but the clothes she was wearing and left her out on the streets. Ursula confessed that she had been living on the streets for two years, planning her revenge on her former husband. When she saw him enter the stables, she sneaked in and strangled the life out of him, laughing while she did it. In court, Judge Price deemed Ursula mentally unstable and sentenced her to Edgewater where she could receive the help she needed.

Faith and the player decided to speak to Liza about the thief's gun found in the small town during the previous investigation. Liza confessed that she had seen someone standing by the stables, watching her through the window for a number of weeks. Alarmed, the duo investigate the stables and found a bandana belonging to the thief, revealing their codename to be "The Highwayman".

Jayden also asked for the player's assistance in investigating Laura in hopes he could see his son, Jordan. Eventually, the pair found Laura's phone and sent it to the lab where Tao confirmed that she had made calls to Abigail Chase and that he knew where she was. Jayden raced to see Abigail and upon meeting her, asked if he could see his son. Abigail refused, calling Jayden unreliable and dangerous and that Jordan was better off without him. Back at the headquarters, Jayden refused to give up the fight to see his son and Warren decided that the best place to go to investigate "The Highwayman" was the movie premiere pf a blockbuster movie being held in town.
