Plot

After discovering the Thief of Hearts' manifesto, Dustin told the team to head to the Buxton horse races to monitor the event. April and the player watched the races before hearing screaming from the stables. The pair quickly headed there, only to find jockey Georgino Bentley, his face smashed in. Alexandre soon held the autopsy, before the pair suspected socialite Gianna Flores, jockey Magdalena Joyce and Deputy Mayor Alyssa Burke. Todrick then reported that CCTV had spotted someone fleeing from the crime scene.

Todrick explained that CCTV had spotted spectator Julie Rheinberg fleeing the crime scene, prompting them to talk to her. Julie confessed that she'd stumbled upon the body and the screams the pair heard were hers. She insisted that she panicked she she saw the body and fled, but promised she didn't kill him. They also questioned stable hand Camilla Bethany before they heard that Alyssa was re-opening the races. After confronting Alyssa and shutting the event down, they arrested Camilla for the murder.

Camilla confessed to the crime, insisting Georgino was a repugnant human. Camilla confessed that Georgino was her idol and that she had asked him for horse riding lessons. Georgino initially ignored her but when she met with him again in the stables, she pleaded that he give her a chance. Annoyed by her, Georgino snapped at her and the pair started arguing. Suddenly, Georgino slapped her and locked her in the horse pen, telling her that she should be with her own kind. Furious, Camilla set a trap for Georgino with the horse and using a firecracker, had the horse kill him. For his murder, she was sentenced to fifteen years in prison by Judge South.

After the trial, a smitten Chief Flanagan told them of a beautiful woman he had saw at the horse races. After Spencer told the player and Dustin that Gianna had asked for help, Dustin recognized her and agreed to help her by helping the player retrieve her missing jewelry. After Valerie noted Dustin's smitten thoughts about Gianna, she then suggested to the Chief that he started the relationship by asking her out. After they collected a red rose from the flower bouquets at the banquet, Dustin then returned to Gianna and returned her jewelry box before offering her the rose and asking her out, the latter saying yes.

Meanwhile, Deputy Mayor Burke told them that they had to discover where the Thief was going to strike, but she told them that she thought she had saw someone they arrested before in the horse racing arena. They went to the stables, where they found a stable belt that belonged to Camilla, who they had arrested hours ago. They then found that Camilla had been released after she paid bail for her crimes. They then hurried to the horse stables, where they found Camilla, who told them that she had been helped by an anonymous source. After they tracked down her phone, they sent it to Valerie, who revealed that Camilla had received funds that was stolen by Ilya Richardson's corrupt money schemes from the Thief of Hearts. She also revealed that Emilio had tracked down the location of the vault from where the money came from, the Bridgeport Bank of Stonemoor, owned by numerous financial masters of Stonemoor. This meant that the Thief of Hearts had already swiftly broke in while they were distracted at the horse races and stolen the money.

After they told the head of the bank, businessman Daniel Hartmann about the thievery of the money in their largest vault, Daniel told them that he would head to the bank and secure the perimeter while the justice enforcers searched the banks and the streets of the city to capture the Thief of Hearts once and for all.
