This follows the path where there are enough bad guys with a single mission to throw things into a mess. The discovery of two young women in a freezer leads to the twists and turns that conclude this case. Parties at a farm are at the center of the murders committed. Rich, older men are culpable and the women used can't do anything. But one young woman becomes conflicted, though she is being blackmailed. The effort is to get to her and enlist her cooperation. Nikki knows her from a previous case and begs her to be forthright. This is a strong episode because it goes back to really honing in on the forensics. Well done from beginning to end.
