Carrie hangs around the nursing home where her mother doesn’t remember her. Carrie goes to an underground  casino in a hot black dress. They pull her into the back room and they say she is a famous card counter. The shot caller wants his money back. They say she stole their money in Atlantic City and they want the money back.

Carrie says she was there, but to ask the associate, for the one man to ask the other, since he was in the other casino and with a bald man with a missing pinkie. The shot caller recognizes a  business rival and blows up at the associate. They were talking about container trucks and Bayonne. Some guy named Milos. The shot caller is incensed.

“What? You told them about Bayonne?"

He gets angry the associate spilled the beans on the deal and tells him to leave.

Then Carrie pulls a gun on the man. Next she leaves, shoving her gun in the trash. Carrie hears a killing in her apartment while she sleeps. She looks down the alley when she finds the body and the old Japanese man finds her. She says to call 911.

Katherine Grant, the victim, lived there for three months. It happened around 3:15. Carrie says she can’t remember anything more. They case the  place and see blood stains on the wall. No forced entry but no robbery her cash was still there. Her supermarket car says Katherine Isaacs. Expired driver’s license says Gail Isaacs.

Carrie finds that Al has left the entire homicide file on Rachel for her. 

At the remembrance ceremony, Carrie has a flashback to the murder of her sister and the man standing over her at the time she found the body.

About the author tvqueen


I like to watch TV shows from classic eras as well as contemporary drama and comedy. Science Fiction is fun, and shows like the Cape and Fringe keep hope alive that the medium that produced Space 1999 is alive. Comedy such as 30 Rock is usually, good, but not always. I like Survivor but it has so little to do with survivor skills I am disappointed. Appointment viewing is Grey's Anatomy, NCIS LA, The CSI series for New York and Las Vegas and Miami, with a special shout out for the new Hawaii Five O. Gordon Ramsay's Hells Kitchen and Kitchen Nightmares are top of the line viewing for the drama comedy Gordon's character and the business lessons they teach.
