At the beginning of the episode, we saw Alexis Morphew receiving a text message, after which she joined a meeting with five people. She told them that they must stop what they had been doing and said she would see them tomorrow. After that, someone arrived at her door. Though we did not see who is it, we saw her asking what the hell they were doing there. Alex was found dead the next day; Cosgrove and Bernard arrived at the site.
They meet with Collin Baker, who claimed they spent sixteen hours a day in virtual sessions; she appeared preoccupied. Her phone records revealed a large number of texts. Alexis’ supervisor informed Cosgrove and Bernard that she was having issues with a previous employee, that he elevated her to CFO, and that her predecessor accused her of sabotage. The emails were easy to locate. Alexis filed them away in a drawer labeled “threats.”
Terry Valentini has been sending Alexis texts threatening to kill her. He also has a bad temper. His ex-girlfriend obtained a restraining order because he was getting personal with her. Collin Baker was discovered to have killed Alex towards the end of the episode. And he appeared in court to answer for his misdeeds.
