      Ed Green: Yeah, why?
      Laura Kendrick: Peter gave me this really pretty pair of garnet earrings. They matched this bracelet. I think I left them here. Did you guys find them? I'd like them back.

    • Abbie Carmichael (about Laura Kendrick): Abused or not, she was there. It's her own sister, for God's sake. We can't let her off the hook.

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • Peter Williams has books in his apartment about real-life serial killers Ted Bundy, Richard Speck and the Boston Strangler. Like Williams, these killers targeted women.

    • This episode appears to be ripped from the headlines of the Leslie Mahaffy, Kristen French, and Tammy Homolka cases. All three were victims of Canada's own Ken and Barbie killers, Paul Bernardo and Karla Homolka. Bernardo was sentenced to life imprisonment for his part in the murder of Tammy Homolka (Karla's sister) and the kidnappings/murders of French and Mahaffey, and Karla Homolka accepted a ten-year plea bargain for her roles that was later upgraded to a twelve-year plea bargain. Homolka was released on July 4, 2005, and has opted to live under the name Karla Teale (Bernardo and Homolka had originally planned to change their surname to Teale, in honor of fictional killer Martin Thiel).
