The latest social security number the machine spews out is that of teenager Theresa Whitaker. The problem is that Theresa was supposedly killed two years earlier in what was deemed a murder/suicide of her entire family on a boat, the killer being her father, Grant Whitaker. However, Theresa's body was never recovered, presumed drowned and swept away by the current. Reese quickly discovers that it wasn't a suicide, but rather a contract hit. They have to figure out who contracted the hit and why, and why they didn't kill then fifteen year old Theresa. They also have to figure out if the hit had any connection to Grant's now supposedly grieving brother Derek and/or Derek's ex-wife, Elizabeth. But first, they have to find Theresa, who probably has trust issues having been underground for two years. Because of her situation, Finch has a certain empathy for this case.

Reese is told to find Theresa in the Upper West Side at 89th Street and West End Avenue, and the street signs are shown to indicate the intersection as such; however, the high-rise tower filmed in the scene - Post Toscana, 343 East 89th Street and laundromat "The Mat" shown in the frame are located at the North West and South West corners (respectively) of East 89th Street and 1st Avenue in the Upper East Side, on the exact opposite side of Manhattan.
Note: The building housing "The Mat" was in existence until Fall 2014 when it was demolished. See more
You know, I went to see your aunt Elizabeth. She seems like a lovely person.
You tell her about me?
No. Of course not. But she did mention how much she missed you. She even showed me an old photo. You know, there's no changing what happened to your family, but you do have someone out there that loves you.
Yeah? What do you know?
