Ryan and Aidan persuade the manager of the Pine Cone Motel to let them search Richie's room. He doesn’t remember much about Richie except that he was quiet and paid the rent on time. They begin to search and Aidan realizes that Richie probably hasn't been living there - the room is too clean and too empty of things. Aidan looks around a little more but only finds one scrap of evidence that Richie has been there - it's a picture of Emma at the beach! Ryan becomes very angry and Aidan has to work hard to keep him calm. Aidan keeps looking around and he finds a bunch of pictures of Richie and Annie as kids. Ryan thinks the pictures look strange but can't put his finger on what, exactly, is wrong with the shots. As they are leaving the motel room, Ryan takes another look at the pictures of the kids. He puts them back in a book and says, "You are a dead man, Richie," and then leaves.
Everyone settles in to wait for news of Babe and the kiddos. A few minutes later Babe walks in with the kids, stunned because everyone is giving her the third degree about Wes! Annie runs outside, looking for Emma. Richie is there, holding her. "Hey, sis," he says!
