Mac learns more about Ltjg. Diane Schonke, who looked so much like her, and who died (in season 1) before Mac and Harm met each other. While Harm reexamines an old cache of letters (by both Harm and Diane), he deduces who killed Diane. Harm and Mac then discuss Diane, her death, and the investigation. Harm leaves, to intercept the killer, and Mac follows him. Harm and his suspect meet, then Mac arrives by surprise and amid unexpected circumstances. Astonished, the killer takes an unplanned and extreme action. Harm and Mac share a prolonged kiss; she makes an observation and asks a question, which Harm answers by saying that nobody will ever know. Written by
