Jessica is fired up to find the murderer of her friend's husband, but private detective Charlie Garrett is unwittingly putting out the flames.
Phil Carmichael (Thom Bierdz) has broken into a house and is rummaging through the drawers of the desk. All three drawers are open. The scene cuts to the desk top where he takes out some papers from a folder. When the scene cuts back to the drawers, only the middle one is open and the other two are closed already.
Grant need Pembroke alive, so due to his perjured testimony, the both of them would have sent Lanie to prison & they would be able to split the insurance money, why kill Pembroke when he needed him alive?
Plus, there's this: With him needing Pembroke alive to testify, to split the money with him, why would he need the trial not to continue by killing Pembroke. Remember, with everyone thinking that Grant is dead due to the accident, remember, the dental records wouldn't prove that the man in the car that died, wasn't Grant, because the teeth would have been too damaged to prove that he wasn't Grant, right?
