had to change it out. oh, no. the air smells fine. mm. it's funny, i'm supposed to be helping with repairs around the building, but so far, most of the broken-down stuff is in here. i got your text. you said you want to talk about something? uh, yeah. a job. i told you that i was gonna take a break from interviewing. well, you would not need to interview for this job. me. i thought i could teach you to do what i do. (chuckles) you want to teach me... to be a private eye? i think you'd be great at it-- you're smart, you know how to read people. you were a great help when we were looking for the bensonhurst bomber. we would not have been able to find him without you. i was a help because i'm an ex-con. that don't mean i'm good at detecting stuff. i knew a guy who knew a guy. you would be surprised how important those connections are in our line of work. it took me years to find my own.
11:31 pm
, sherlock and i have experience with teaching. you'd be paid a stipend, which is more than you make at the gym. but the work is hard. you'd have to be available 24/7. and you'd have to study harder than you've ever studied in your life. but in the end, i think it would be worth it. you'd be your own boss. and it's work that your daughter could be proud of. no. no. look, i appreciate all that you're doing. t that doesn't mean i'm always gonna agree with you. i don't expect you to. i know, it just feels that way sometimes. thank you for the offer. of course. all right, listen, you have a good night, okay? (door opens) (door closes)
11:32 pm
'm just typing. i mean with the glasses. oh, i-i forgot i had those on. they're, uh, they're just helping me get into character. (computer beeps) oh, my god, you have your own trueromantix account? no, wade applewhite has his own trueromantix account. he's one of my aliases. florida-born, moved to the city in '07, systems analyst with big dreams, enjoys wind surfing. i thought i would take a page out of damien novak's book and try a little catfishing of my own. what do you mean? which backed yvette ingram's lawsuit. we've been chatting for almost an hour. i think she's a hair's breadth from sending me a list of the individuals who profited. wow, that's pretty low. well, it is and it isn't. i mean, i chose her based on certain beliefs she's espoused on social media. for example, she started her own chapter of the ayn rand appreciation society because the new york chapter was too charitable, so, you know, when wade fails to meet her for line dancing tomorrow night,
11:33 pm
to shinwell tonight. and? you're right... not a detective. not for everyone, watson. in fact... (computer pings) oh. the biscuit is in the basket. sorry. that's just something that wade would say. his would-be girlfriend has sent a list of investors. tell me you don't have to catfish any of them tonight. i don't think any additional subterfuge will be necessary. one of these names is quite familiar. you met him the other day. advised my client not to answer any questions. bell: that's okay, he can just listen. we know you lied to us the other day, mr. lerner. when we said there was evidence that suggested your brother-in-law was a sex predator, you couldn't get on board fast enough. but the truth is he was hunting men like that. and you knew it. you said you talked to damien after your sister thought he was having an affair. we're guessing he told you the truth about what he was doing. holmes: the timing was quite fortuitous.
11:34 pm
being brought by a woman named yvette ingram. and those depositions were not going as you'd hoped. so you created a phony trueromantix profile for yvette's former boss, jack mcgill, and struck up a conversation with one of damien's alter egos. not long after, damien assaulted mcgill, and posted a video that branded him a sex predator. a big cash settlement for yvette went from being a long shot to a sure thing. you made your money back times ten. damien was a loose end, however, garrett: wait. what do y-- what do you mean? garrett. no, no, uh... are-are you saying i killed him? the other day, you let your sister think that her freshly-murdered husband was a habitual seducer of teenagers, so it's not hard for us to see you make the leap to murder. have you said anything to stephanie about this? garrett, i thought we agreed... no, no, no, no. they think i killed damien. do you know what that would do to my sister? we haven't talked to stephanie.
11:35 pm
but i did not kill him. mr. lerner, after everything that's happened, why should we believe a word you say? because... i needed him alive. explain that to us. when i communicated with him as jack mcgill, i did it from a library near my house. if he ever caught on to me, i didn't want him to trace it back to my home computer. the night that he was killed, i was at the library again. i had invested in another sexual harassment case. i figured i could use damien again to get it to go the way i wanted. ony profile, okay, in the name of the new defendant, to get damien to go after him. there's cameras at the library. go see. i'm-i'm telling the truth. am i a despicable person? yes. did i trick damien? yes. but i'm telling you, i never would have hurt him.

11:41 pm
ecurity footage until i settled up. $463 later, marcus and i were able to confirm garrett lerner's alibi. he did not kill his brother-in-law. watson: i had a feeling it was going that way, so i dug back into the men that damien novak shamed. and? well, you and i both don't like jack mcgill for the murder, so i put him to the side. jerome chun is still in a coma, and reuben welker is still in prison. so that just leaves ignacio gomez and shane fitzhugh. both of whom fled the country. yeah. crying, watson? excuse me? you've been crying sometime in the last hour. okay, first of all, i did not cry, i teared up, and second of all, it wasn't because we weren't able to pin one of these guys to the murder. it was because of these. oh, these are the statements from the women hurt by fitzhugh and gomez. oh, the toughest one to read
11:42 pm
he was her j.v. field hockey coach. over the course of a year, he abused her over a hundred times. she was 14. 20 when she wrote this. yeah, it took her that long to come forward. when she was a kid, he convinced her that no one was gonna believe her and it was all her fault. when she went to college, she knew better. hmm. told you it was tough to read. ms. swain writes that for years she's required a daily cocktail of anti-depressants and anti-anxiety medication. who knows how long she's gonna have to take those for? (sighs) is there a problem? well, the problem is, i don't just know who killed damien novak, watson. but i liked her. miss parsons, please have a seat. if you need more data from trueromantix, i can't help you. i gave my notice two days ago. no, that's not why we asked you here. so the other day, i, uh, misunderstood
11:43 pm
t you were eavesdropping because you didn't like him, but in truth, you wanted to know how much the police knew about damien novak's murder. i'm sorry. um... damien novak? the man you shot the other night. we know your real name is nadia swain. we also know that in 2009 you were victimized by a man named shane fitzhugh. last year, you worked up the courage to tell the new jersey police about it. holmes: you gave them a very detailed statement, and in that you explained how you needed a, uh, certain regimen ow. sertraline, 150 milligrams, once a day. aripiprazole, five milligrams, twice a day. clonazepam, one-half milligram, once a day. now, when i approached your desk the other day, i saw that very same combination of medications in your pill organizer. you own a white toyota camry, right? so? we have video of a white camry tearing out of the parking lot where damien novak was shot. a lot of people own white camrys. how many of them also own a nine millimeter handgun?
11:44 pm
at first we... we didn't get it. why kill novak? i mean, he shamed sex predators, including the one that hurt you. but then we reached out to jersey city pd. all of a sudden, everything made sense. after you came forward, they started an investigation into mr. fitzhugh. they took what you said very seriously. but after so much time had passed, there wasn't any evidence. bell: it took them a few months, but they managed to identify a second girl he'd hurt... holmes: so they were on the verge of making an arrest, and then mr. novak muscles his way into the equation. he shames your tormentor. he does such a good job, the man has to leave the country. so, all of a sudden, your quest for justice... over. you got angry, you wanted revenge, but the man who cost you a shot at fitzhugh was anonymous. all anyone knew about him was that he set traps at trueromantix.
11:45 pm
access to their files, and then all of a sudden, this hunter, he becomes the hunted. bell: it took you some time, but you managed to identify novak's newest phony accounts. you monitored them, and when you saw he was going to meet winston utz at a motel a few nights ago, you acted. i wanted him to understand what he'd done. i wanted to shame him. i was gonna make a video of my own. he was on his way to that man's room when i came up behind him and put the gun to his back. (crying) made him tie his own hands. but then, when he turned around, when he saw me... ...he wasn't afraid anymore. he said
11:46 pm
hen he looked at me, he saw what shane saw. a victim. (crying) i didn't mean to kill him. (footsteps) watson: what are you doing? i'm chatting with a policeman in the province of bali. ve your glasses on, so i'm guessing you're not wade applewhite right now. i am not. bali. isn't that where shane fitzhugh fled to? indonesia has no extradition treaty with the united states. in my early days as a detective, i lost many suspects to such countries. didn't sit well, so i began to develop friendships with those countries' various branches of law enforcement.
11:47 pm
ing to be arrested by the balinese police tomorrow morning. did he hurt someone there? gonna find ten kilograms of uncut cocaine in his home. your friend is gonna plant it. drug laws in that part of the world... quite severe. he'll be spending the rest of his life in an indonesian prison. i typically don't like such measures, but there's ample evidence that fitzhugh's a threat to young women wherever he resides. if you feel i'm acting rashly... i didn't say anything. (indistinct voices in distance) bang!
11:48 pm
hey, if i can find it, so can your parole officer. why are you here? heard about your new friend, ms. watson. i understand you two been spending a lot of time together. what do you care? (laughing) you are aware that she works for the police, aren't you? you and me, shinwell, we got big plans. be a shame if you die before we see them through. (door opens) (door closes) [ bells jingling ] whoa. the holidays are coming. [ barks ] you're right. we need to get ready for the big show. what's up dudes? lots to do. hey iron man can you run up for the lights?
