Jane wonders if Kiki will say yes. She is worried that Vince will leave the force if he is happily married. She can't imagine doing this job without him.

Nina also tells Vince the hacker may be Riley Keating. Jane watches them talking from the elevator.
At the preschool, Frankie interviews Karen. She is shocked someone was really killed. She has never done anything like this before. She wanted an adrenaline rush. She feels bad because Daniella saved her life. She barely saw him but he was taller than Daniella Gus Brooks was a maintenace guy who lied on his application.
