Sonya Rucker, whose company is a client of SL&G, has a crisis. Her babysitter, Lisa Pruit, was murdered at her home and her husband, Jason Rucker, is the lead suspect. Will and Diane call in Alicia and Cary to help with the case. Cary thought he had the following day off and has taken mushrooms with a friend in from Seattle, but now must pull himself together for the next 48 hours. When contact is finally made with Jason, who claims to have been in a movie, they bring him into the firm and have him take a polygraph test before the police arrive to arrest him. As Will, Alicia and a tripping Cary question Jason, they discover that he was at his studio where he works on his graphic novel. Lisa was his muse on the project and would spend time at the studio, but their relationship did not go any further than that. At first Kalinda suspects the neighborhood security guard is responsible, but turns her attention towards one of Lisa's classmates, Max, who got Lisa pregnant, but when she wouldn't have an abortion, he killed her and tried to frame Jason for it. On the personal front, Peter is released on electronic monitoring and we end on him at Alicia's door as she opens it.
