Brad and Katie arrive at the police station and tell Margo about seeing Spencer. They show her the picture of the area where Brad saw Spencer but Margo says it doesn't matter because she can't launch an investigation in Chicago. She goes to check something out. Katie is worried about the mysterious emails. Margo returns and questions why they were in Chicago; they tell her about the job interviews. She believes Brad imagined seeing Spencer but he insists it was Spencer. She says the medical examiner would have noticed if he performed an autopsy on a dead body. Katie says she didn't see Spencer. Brad asks if she doubts him; she admits she does. Brad swears that the woman he saw was Spencer. Margo tells Brad there is no way he saw Spencer. "I'm going to find her and bring her back here," he says and hurries out. Margo tells Katie it is time to come clean. She asks what Katie knows that she isn't telling! Katie clams up and leaves. Dani returns, asks what is going on and Margo says it doesn't matter.
Dani barges into Metro and is looking around. Henry sees her and questions her. He says he doesn't have Spencer's body. She admits she was looking for something related to Spencer. Henry says she is looking in the wrong place because he had nothing to do with Spencer's disappearance. "I need to find the body," she says desperately and tells Henry that if she doesn't find the body her career is in the toilet. He doesn't say anything. She turns to go and Henry says he didn't do anything to Spencer. She leaves. Brad arrives and tells Henry about seeing Spencer. He asks for Henry's help in finding her. Henry pours a stiff drink and says Brad must be hallucinating! "The cops won't help but I know you can," Brad says and asks for Henry's Chicago contacts. Henry reluctantly agrees to help. He makes a few calls; Brad tells him about seeing Spencer. Henry says Spencer might contact him and suggests that she may not have tried to frame Brad. He says maybe she just wanted to fake her death! Brad doesn't believe that. Henry says maybe it is another plan to break up his marriage.
Henry goes to Al's and finds Dani there. He says she won't find Spencer's body there, either.

Henry lets her in on Brad's sighting.
Brad returns home and tells Katie that Henry is on the case. Katie says she's been doing job research for them. Brad says she should look for a job without him; she says she goes where he goes. He tells her about Henry's thoughts about Spencer. Katie says she loves him. Brad says he is going to find Spencer and says it is okay that she doesn't quite believe him yet. Katie gives in and says she will help him. They sit down and list what they know about Spencer. Henry calls and tells them someone has spotted the thug with the music box, but so far no Spencer sightings. The computer beeps and a message from the contact pops up. "Tell Brad to back off," the message reads.
Spencer calls Dani and says being sighted was no big deal. Dani says she better watch out or she'll wind up a real dead body!
