Later, Monica examines the woman after Angie loans her extra workout clothes from her locker. The woman doesn't remember anything, and the only word she responds to is "asylum." Angie notices a walk/don't walk sign tattooed on the woman's back, and insists to Jay that there's something wrong and they need to crack the case. Jay doesn't see it as a matter for the police, but Angie insists on taking the woman home.

They explains that the motorcycle was registered to the house, which belongs to prison guard Christie Ripley. Deirdre says that Christie was forced to help Edward escape, and that she's Christie.
