At about seven minuten into the episode, Jim refuses to take Beth's case, when it quickly cuts to the next scene where it shows Jim is actually on the case and Beth talked him into it. The exact same thing was done in season one's "the dark and Bloody grond". See more
At the end Jim discovers Dave Delaroux painted Beth's portrait over what Jim calls a "Federal Bearer Bond." A close up of the bond shows Dave Delaroux's name typed on it. Bearer bonds are called by that name because they are not issued to a particular person; whoever happens to posses the bond (i.e., the bearer), is the legal owner of it, regardless of who the original owner was. They would never have the owner's name typed on it as that would make it a regular bond. Several years after this show bearer bonds were made illegal in the US for the very reason used in this story: it made for an easy way to launder money and smuggle it outside of the country. See more
