Quinn feels she shouldn’t have to answer that question.

Justin arrives at Bill’s house, where Detective Sanchez (played by Jeremy Ray Valdez) asks why he’s there. Justin’s seeking important legal documents that need to be filed today. The paperwork is in an evidence bag, as well as Bill’s golden gun. The detective asks if Justin knows who might have done this, but Justin’s only concerned with the legal documents. The detective’s interested to hear Bill was disinheriting his sons. Justin muses he could throw their names in the hat with the others – any number of people might want him out of the way.
