Afterword With eight finales into this season, this one has become my second favourite. I liked the clever plot twist with Fiona being the killer. CoolCCMystery (talk) 21:38, August 28th, 2018 (UTC)

Once they had been informed, Faith and the player raced to the town square and confronted Jonas about his plans before proceeding to arrest him. The team then searched the town square and suspected newspaper owner Roberto Vaughn and his niece Fiona Vaughn. Partway through the intense investigation, Jayden rushed into the headquarters, explaining that the movement supporters had broken Jonas out of his cell.

The team raced to the central square and found Jonas hiding behind a bottle. After confronting him, he unveiled a pocket knife and lunged at the player and Faith. Eventually, the duo handcuffed him and discovered that Fiona was dating Connor before he was arrested and was pregnant with his baby. Roberto was confronted after it was discovered he planned to build a museum to praise the serial killer and Clifford was furious at the victim after he attacked his father in prison, leaving him comatose. Augustine was revealed to have been thoroughly researching the serial killer's victims. Irene was also questioned after it was discovered her husband, Colton Watson, had shot a woman dead during a robbery at a jewellery store. Finally, the team were able to uncover Fiona as the serial killer.

The pair hurried to the Vaughn manor to find and apprehend Fiona for her crimes. Upon arrival, they found no trace of Fiona and were informed by Roberto that she was leaving via train to the city of Warrenville. Realizing that she was attempting to flee the city with Callum, the player and Faith headed back to the headquarters and were approached by Irene who insisted to come with them to arrest Fiona. The three of them rushed to the train station and confronted Fiona, resulting in her threatening Callum with a gun. Fiona explained that the woman Colton killed was her mother, leaving her with a desire to kill all criminals to avenge her mother. A tearful Irene apologised for her late husband's actions and begged her to let Callum go. The serial killer maniacally refused, explaining that killing Callum was the ultimate punishment and the only way to fully avenge her dead mother, leaving Irene and Callum in tears. Finally, much to Irene's terror, the gun was fired.

As the smoke cleared, it was revealed that Faith had shot Fiona in the head. Irene then rushed and hugged a traumatized Callum and asked if he was alright. The four of them returned back to the police station only to discover it had been set on fire and vandalised. Panicked, Chief Warren informed them that the serial killer supporters had set fire to the station due to Jonas' arrest. Faith and the player immediately went to confront Jonas in prison who told them he had ordered one of his followers to light the station on fire if he was imprisoned. He further explained that he would order the riots to stop if they discovered the person responsible for burning the station and prove that justice still existed. Jonas informed the duo that he had left a clue in the central square, resulting in the duo racing there. Upon arrival, they searched his shoulder bag and discovered that Kirsty Flanagan was responsible for the arson and arrested her, ending the riots.

Meanwhile, Jayden and the player searched the late serial killer's hideout in the mines to tie up any remaining loose ends. Eventually, they found a cryptex inside the hideout which revealed a notebook with vague words on it. After being analysed by Tao, he confirmed that it was Fiona's target list. He further explained that Fiona had discovered a plot to attack Vertex Springs. Worried about this revelation, Jayden and the player went to speak to Jayden's ex-wife and Vertex Springs' owner's assistant Abigail Chase about the district. Finally, Irene requested to speak to the team urgently. She confessed that the events of the investigation had made her realize that she wanted to try a different job and had decided to work at the local theatre. Irene then said her tearful goodbyes and resigned from the force, making Callum the new Head of Forensics.

At the end of the case, the team, minus Irene, prepared to leave for Vertex Springs!
