(buoy bell ringing) boa vista: we still don't know what derek was hit with. we didn't find any weapon at the scene. maybe derek here can help us out with that. boa vista: damn, those are some nice abs. this guy must have lived at the gym. where did he find time to squeeze in all the women? always time to squeeze in women. especially if they're paying. (scoffs) a lot of coagulated blood. probably suffered an intracranial hemorrhage. my guess is he would have bled out if the propane hadn't gotten to him first. got a little something in this wound. would you do me a favor
and hand me the magnifying glass and tweezers, please? gracias. mm-hmm. yeah. are those dandruff flakes? maybe from our gigolo joe. his dandruff could have fallen onto the vic when he attacked him. care to take it to trace? thank you. the flakes are pvc plastic. but i can't think of anything made of pvc heavy enough to fracture a skull. what if it were part of a weapon? hmm? this may help. the flakes are coated with water and glycerin. why would that be on the outside of a weapon?
it's not what's on the outside. it's what's on the inside. hmm. i'm totally lost. okay. when i was a little, my dad used to take me to the derby. i loved horses. and i would always beg him to buy me a horse. so my dad bought me a snow globe with a stallion on the inside. so, you're saying that the flakes we found on the body is actually snow from inside a snow globe? exactly. it's the water-glycerin mixture that makes the snow float. what if these leaked out when derek was hit on the head? what kind of guy brings a snow globe to attack someone? could be a woman. you know, joe did say that a lot of women give gifts to the gigolos. maybe one of the women bought it as a gift but ended up using it as a weapon. ♪
got paris here. vacation. perfect place to pick up a souvenir. right? "la tour d'argent, musee d'orsay, louvre, claudine cadeaux, bon marche. wait-wait-wait. go back. was that claudine cadeaux? it's "claudine's gifts." "maison du chocolat... uh... a boule de neige." "snow globe." that's the snow globe! whose statement is that? boa vista: it's gretchen, our housewife. ah! (sirens wailing) (indistinct radio transmission) i told you it's not here. i gave the snow globe to derek. he kept it in the cabana. anyone could have hit him with it.
this hammer's got some white flakes on it. i'll bet you this was used to smash the snow globe. where's the trash? mrs. cambridge? do you recognize that? it's a piece of a snow globe. and can you tell me how it got that way? gretchen: i... uh... i, uh... i hit derek on the back of the head with it. you hit him on the back of the head? that's... that's strange, because derek was actually hit on the front of the head. mrs. cambridge, you are clearly covering for someone. gretchen: no, no, listen, you have to believe me.
i'm telling you the truth. it's me. it's me. enough! enough. all right? no more lies. i suspected you were cheating on me, so i waited until you left the house, and i followed you. it couldn't have been you... you weren't... i came back from my business trip a day early. gretchen: that was amazing. derek: good night. caine: and that's when you confronted derek. i thought i could convince him to stop seeing her. just leave my wife alone. well, maybe if you paid better attention to her, she'd stop coming back to me. where did you get this? gretchen gave it to me.
i thought you stopped loving me. steven: i never did. i'm so sorry. i'm so sorry. don't. mr. cambridge, one more question. did you break the valve on the fireplace before or after the attack on derek? i don't know what you're talking about. i didn't go anywhere near the fireplace. take him. i believe him. so do i. well, if he didn't cause the gas leak, that leaves one question. who did?

[ female announcer ] see for yourself, aetna.com aetna. know more. get better.
(elevator bell dings) delko: h... i got something on the propane leak. based on the flow rate and the size of the cabana, it would've taken about two hours for the propane to become deadly. yeah, but there was no guarantee that derek would stay in there the entire time. okay... maybe the killer didn't plan to suffocate him. well, that's true, because i think they were counting on him
to light the fireplace, to cause an explosion. that's a good plan in theory, except the victim would have smelled the gas and decided to leave. unless the killer knew he wouldn't. well, hector romero wouldn't have had a motive, then. 'cause he was making a lot of money off derek. he certainly was, which means somebody else knew about the propane. (sirens wailing) hang on a second, folks. we posted bail. they said i could leave. why do you want to talk to my dad again? i don't want to talk to your dad. i want to talk to you. you run the day-to-day operations at the hotel. yes, so? so, you would know that the propane was odorless. let me see your shoes, please.
they're clean. they may be, but the foot isn't, is it? you just weren't wearing these shoes last night. you had open-toe shoes on? how do you know that? because you have frostbite. boa vista: it's from exposure to propane. from when you kicked the valve on the fireplace. (grunts) (gas hissing) want to tell us what happened? derek and i were seeing each other. what?! you were with that gigolo? i knew what he was, and i thought i could handle it. but then i kept seeing... those checks. here, babe. this should cover the rest of this week's rent. hmm.
