Plot

After heading to Los Angeles to investigate the drug handed to Eugene Montana, Takagi invited Bradley and the player to go sightseeing. The trio then headed up to a viewing point where Takagi looked at the Hollywood sign through binoculars. There, she spotted a dead body, prompting the trio to head up and investigate. When they arrived, they found the body of actor Harry Fletcher, nailed to the sign. They first suspected the victim's agent Shreya Stark, director Hunter Quincy, aspiring actor Samuel Vance from Aurelia, and trainee journalist Lucas Marlow. Anastasia then told the team that Harry was filming his upcoming film in Starlight Shores, where the player's career began.

The player arrived back in Starlight Shores where they searched the movie set, the Starlight Estate park, and found reason to suspect SSPD Chief Linda Potters and convict Dayiu, who'd been allowed on supervised conditional release on certain days after assisting the player back in Rusthollow. Linda then came up to the player, saying that she had something important to say. Linda told the pair how Harry was infatuated with her, sending her love letters. She said that she quickly disposed of the letters as she was loyal to her now-fiancé, Owen Morpurgo. Following Linda's help, the team investigated further, incriminating Hunter as the killer.

Hunter quickly snapped, saying that he had to do what he did to save his career. Hunter revealed that he had a drug addiction and after Hunter suffered from a hallucination while working, Harry found out about his addiction and planned to go to the press as revenge for Hunter having him followed. After Harry got in touch with Lucas to share the story, Hunter got desperate to shut Harry up and knocked him out, nailing him to the Hollywood sign for all Los Angeles to see. In court, Hunter was sentenced to fifty years in prison by Judge Armstrong.

Post-trial, Linda cheerfully greeted the player and invited them and the rest of the GPA to the festival being hosted in the park. After helping decorate the park, the GPA attended the festival, where they met the player's old colleagues: Alice, Isaac, Malcolm, and Naomi as well as seeing Owen and Mayor Vanessa Appleton. As the festivities ended, Linda thanked the player for their help and told them how she wished they would see each other again soon.

Meanwhile, Riya and the player decided to speak to Hunter about his hallucinations and the drugs he was taking. Hunter explained that he met up with a dealer along Hollywood boulevard, prompting the pair to head there and find drug dealer Reynaldo Gonzalez. Reynaldo then fled up to the Hollywood sign where the pair quickly arrested him. Once Reynaldo refused to say anything, the player and Riya searched the area, sending his wallet to Anya for analysis.

Anya confirmed that Reynaldo worked for casino owner Lynette Lovelle, who'd often been in trouble for drug related crimes. Anya then told them that speaking to Lynette would be difficult, as only her closest friends could schedule meetings with her. She then told them that Dayiu was a known friend of Lynette, suggesting that they have Dayiu meet with Lynette under supervision. After getting President James Marsden's approval, the team spoke to Dayiu, who accepted on the condition of more phone time. With everything in place, the team set off to Las Vegas to find more leads on where the hallucinogenic drug was coming from.
