Even Mary would admit that Don and Ruth Ferguson are two of the nicest, most selfless, giving people on the planet. They're devoted to the Catholic Church, spend all of their time working at a homeless shelter (which they also did in Boston even before they were in WITSEC) and they've achieved something that is sadly rare for witnesses: they were able to recreate their former lives almost to a T.
Unfortunately, what has also remained the same is that they can't stand each other. But despite their mutual ongoing misery, divorce isn't an option for this devout couple who have tried everything under the sun to rekindle the flame, from counseling to romantic getaways to prayer.
When word comes that Don's charred car has been found in a ravine with him inside, Ruth is devastated nonetheless. As Mary sniffs around the edges of Officer Bobby D.'s arson and homicide investigation looking for clues, she learns that the case is more complicated than it seems at first glance. For starters, the body in Don's car isn't Don, which begs the question: Could Don still be alive? If so, where is he?
Even though Jinx is now gainfully employed as a hostess at Prima Luna, she still has stars in her eyes, especially when she finds out that the Duke City Players are holding an open call for Sweet Charity. Maybe, just maybe, she could dust off her dancing shoes and give it a shot. And with Mary suddenly on the case of the missing Don, she naturally doesn't have as much time as she promised Raphael she would and has to cut short what was supposed to be a romantic dinner at Prima Luna. But since Brandi has nothing but time, once again she steps in to help by driving Raph home from the restaurant. Only this time the line that hasn't yet been crossed just might be.
