As Samantha and Elena survey Abby's ransacked studio, they wonder if she could have fallen prey to someone who was outraged to discover that she had immortalized their private experience. The team soon learns from Lucas Blumenthal (PETER PAIGE - "Queer as Folk"), an art gallery owner who had opened an exhibit of Abby's paintings right before her disappearance, that Abby was recently confronted by an angry male who was depicted in one of her paintings.

The squad also learns that Jason was trying to reconcile with his ex-fiance, which leads them to wonder if he might have gotten between her and a new man in her life.

The Senator had told her husband she was going to an emergency meeting in Washington, but she lied--no one was expecting her there, nor did she ever make it. When no ransom note arrives after 15 hours, Jack starts considering other suspects, including political enemies, a stalker and even the Senator's husband. But the suicide of a devoted former staffer sends the team in a whole new direction. Series star ANTHONY LaPAGLIA wrote the story and co-wrote the teleplay.
