Kate takes a case away from Curtis when the daughter of a prominent university dean is found dead of a drug overdose. The girl was using cocaine that was cut with a drug used in veterinary medicine. Kate issues a statement to the press regarding the possible fatal consequences of this issue. She gives a "no comment" response when a question about the prominent dean's daughter pops up. Her hesitation to answer quickly gets her demoted by Commissioner Beverly Travers, who then appoints Curtis to run the office.
With some unexpected free time on her hands, Kate decides to help Megan with her case. She does a reconstruction of the second dead person's face. The woman looks like a photo found on Teddy Gorman's social network page. Her name: Lisa Schmidt. Teddy had a relationship with her during the time his house was under construction, but Lisa was gone when he returned home from a trip.
Megan and the team determine that Kyle was shot in front of a street mural. Once they find the crime scene, they pull a bullet casing that is traced back to Kyle's former boss, Harvey Brandt. Thanks to Kate's help, Megan is able to prove that Brandt killed Lisa Schmidt. When the guy learned that Kyle was snooping around the cigar room wall where he buried the body, Brandt killed him, too. Case closed.
