Linden and Jack go to a new hotel one which has better security, she gets a call from Holder who tells her he has the connection between the casino and the construction company.In the car Holder tells Linden that Michaels Ames company never finished the construction at the casino. Linden suggests he go around talking to employee’s to see if anyone knows anything. She pulls out the book which she took from Holders apartment and tells him that Rosie had used her camera to study the migration of the Butterflies near the casino so perhaps she had stumbled on a secret she shouldn’t have known or was trying to find out something. Linden goes to explore the island and Holder goes into the casino and begins to look around, he is spotted by a cleaner there who looks at him strangely.

Gwen and Jamie go to visit Stan and try to convince him to read the statement at the press conference, telling him about the deal that could be made with his trial.

At the casino Holder begins talking to one of the employees, he tells him he was looking for some sort of room service, the employee gives him a poker chip and tells him to go to the bar and give it in to the bar tender who will hook him up. Whilst walking Linden is interrupted by Nicole Jackson – i really do not trust this woman! Linden tells her that she knows Rosie was at the casino, Linden realises she is surrounded by Nicole, Roberta Drays – the women who has been watching Linden – and other people from the island; Nicole tells her that this is her warning to stay away.

Back in the casino Holder talks to a lady offering room service, he tells her he would like to do it in the unfinished rooms, she declines telling him no one is allowed to go up there. A young man offers his services to Holder who again tells him he wants to do it at the construction site, the young man tells Holder it is on the 10th floor. Holder pushes him off and quickly tries to get up to the 10th floor but has no luck. He gets back in the lift and is joined by the cleaner from earlier;she gives him a pack of matches for his cigarettes. Holder is confused, the cleaner doesn’t say anything until she gets out at the next floor she turns to look at him and says “I hope Rosie’s family got her backpack ok” – So it was her that gave the backpack! The lift doors shut and Holder tries to get out, he opens the cigarette packet and inside it says 11am tomorrow – the lift doors open and Holder is greeted with the casino security.
