Plus, there’s a fine line between investigating a suspect and hooking up with him — and Lindy’s flirting with it.
Instead of mourning the death Lindy (Victoria Justice) experienced last week, she’s at the club, dancing and kissing one of the main suspects. However, after being approached by the Cyber Crime unit, she has to decide if working with the police is worth it, even though her way is much less official.
‘Romancing Murder’ Isn’t A Good Idea
After spending a hot and heavy night out with Reece (Nils Lawton), a sexy man Lindy is investigating, she’s forced to cut to short when Tommy (Casey Deidrick) tells her that another murder has happened — Reece’s girlfriend’s face was melted off.
Besides Reece, the other suspect is Jake (Ryan Cooper), who Lindy has been spying on for weeks, as well as hacking into his phone. During a stake out, she meets the head of the cyber crime unit and is asked to join her in the investigation. Obviously she’s not a fan of the police, but they’re willing to help giving her a bigger chance to find the killer, and ultimately her sister.
Of course in Lindy’s eyes, everyone is suspect. She’s hesitant when Jake shows up at her apartment door so that he can cook her dinner, but it ends up being a decent evening — and she walks him out with a simple kiss on the cheek. However, Tommy was waiting outside when Lindy walked him out, and let her know that the she may be hanging out with a killer, because Reece has an alibi. Instead of believing him, she decides the best bet would be to go out with Reece (since she totally left him wanting more last time), while Tommy searches his car.
We All End Up Like A Junkyard
So, on a date she goes. Of course, Tommy can hear the whole thing through a mic but she can’t hear him — even when he tells her she looks beautiful. Definitely foreshadowing a romance to come (which I mean, how could it not with how gorgeous he is?). However, Reece has decided a surprise for her; instead of a restaurant filled with people, he brought her to a junkyard and tried to make a move on her. He also made it very clear that he wasn’t a “nice guy” and just wanted to have fun before leaving town.
Sounds like the killer, right? Well, not so fast. After a text from Tommy, Lindy runs to the car, but it’s been rigged and Tommy’s been put in the trunk. In the drivers’ seat is a dummy, covered in photos of Lindy and her friends — every move she’s made since Ben’s death.
The car slams and she’s able to get Tommy out, and he makes it clear that she and her friends need to stay under police surveillance until Reece was captured. Unfortunately, after arriving at the station, Lindy and Tommy both received the same text: live videos of the killer torturing Reece.
So, who could it be?
