Undercover, Spinelli and Sam visit with Margaux’s mother Jeanette Marino, (played by Ely Pouget), pretending to be from her husband’s life insurance company. Jeannette invites them in and Spinelli brings up the life insurance claim. Jeannette claims she was shocked when word came that Vincent’s remains were found. Sam spots a photo of Margaux. Jeannette confirms it’s her daughter and that she never wanted for anything. They explain because she stopped paying her premiums a few months after her husband was declared missing this could result in no payment. However they could award her the money if she has a way to prove he died before the policy lapsed. Jeanette is sure he died in March, because that day he left she felt sure he was going to die. She knows her husband worked for dangerous people, and the cops were convinced he just left but she swears Vincent would never have left Margaux. Spinelli feigns ill and asks for a glass of water, so Jeanette leads him into the kitchen. Sam quickly snoops into a locked desk drawer and finds a stack of letters tied together with a bow. She swipes them and Spinelli and Jeanette return. Spinelli feels they may have enough to see her claim paid out and they depart. Outside, Sam reveals the letters to Spinelli and that they are love letters from Joe Scully to Jeanette.
