Plot

Upon Jackson Sharp's word that Aida Ashridge was in Mumbai, Connor instructed Malcolm to set a course to Mumbai to investigate. Bradley and the player then headed to the yoga studio where Jackson was located, only to find yogini Amita Korrapati dead, her bones broken and her eyes and teeth missing. Nia ascertained that Amita was killed when her bones were broken, confirming that the killer removed her eyes and teeth post-mortem. They first suspected guru Deepak Bhavna and yoga teacher Jai Kalyani, as well as questioning Jackson on the murder. They were then approached by Takagi and Anya who told them that after doing some digging into the victim, discovered that she was leading a double life.

Takagi and Anya revealed that Amita was formerly a banker who lived in Venusville, but had faked her death when she was facing indictment for money embezzlement. Takagi then directed them to a warehouse Amita owned in hopes they could learn more. There, the pair suspected carpet seller Ravi Patil and student Faye Bordeaux. It was also discovered that Jackson was the person who had discovered Amita's money embezzlement. They were then informed by Anthony that Deepak was in town, ranting about how the victim deserved what she got. They confronted Deepak who confessed that he'd discovered the truth about who Amita was, saying that he was furious he let a criminal into his life. After calming Deepak down, they investigated the crime scenes again, finding reason to charge Jai for the murder.

Jai first tried to deny the accusations before confessing, insisting that she deserved what happened to her. Jai told the detectives that he and Amita had grown close following their time together in the yoga studio and when Jai discovered that Amita was actually a criminal, he was infuriated. Jai then started wringing his hair and insisted that Amita deserved death for her deception and lies, recounting how he told Amita to meet him in the studio on the day of the murder. He then shattered her bones with dandiya sticks before removing her eyes to symbolise how blind she was. Finally, he knocked out her teeth and kept them as a token of the murder. Disgusted by Jai's remorseless murder, they sent him to trial. Judge Armstrong decided that, due to his damaged mental state, Jai should be sentenced to life in asylum along with mandatory counselling sessions. Afterwards, the pair returned to the plane, where they were approached by a startled Spencer. Spencer insisted that while the GPA were searching Amita's warehouse, they'd discovered something: a hidden room containing dead bodies.

The player and Bradley quickly raced back to the warehouse and entered the hidden room, where they found a several dead bodies covered in melted gold. Shocked by the scene, the GPA carried the bodies away and sent them to Nia for autopsy. Nia confirmed that each victim had been tortured severely before the killer covered them in melted gold, burning them to death. She also ascertained that each person had died a month from each other, confirming that the serial killer killed once a month. The pair also realized that due to Amita's criminal nature, she would have been unable to report the bodies to the police.

Riya then asked to speak to the player, saying the modus operandi was familiar to her. The trio then headed back to the yoga studio where, with Ravi's help, they found the book Riya was looking for. With the book's help, Riya confessed that the modus operandi matched a tale that badly behaved children would be snatched away and turned to gold every month. She explained that the story was told to frighten children into behaving, insisting that the killer must have used this story to create their identity. Imran then looked into the story and discovered it originated in Islamabad.

Meanwhile, Connor accompanied the player in speaking to Jackson about Aida's presence in Mumbai. Jackson confessed that he saw her by the Gateway of India, prompting them to head there. While investigating, they found Aida's satchel which they quickly searched through, discovering a photo of a young girl. They swiftly sent the photo to Takagi, who identified the girl as Priyanka Perera, an orphan who had died fourteen years in Sri Lanka. Believing Priyanka and Aida were connected, Connor asked Takagi to keep digging. Finally, the team reconvened to discuss their findings. A determined Connor then told the team they were heading to Islamabad, to find out more about the serial killer's origins and who they may target next.

Fourteen years ago, Aida accompanied Priyanka to her first physiotherapy session a few weeks after her injury. When Priyanka stumbled, Aida went over to her and tried to reassure her. A saddened Priyanka told Aida how alone she felt, prompting Aida to confess that she knew what Priyanka felt, saying that her mother had died in a terrorist attack and her father was a casualty of war. Aida then promised Priyanka that she was there to support her, before giving her a tight hug and sending her back to try again.
