The Most Wanted team finds their suspect for the triple homicide rather easily as security camera footage points them to him. A little bit of digging around reveals that he's a methhead named Harley Ross and that he has a girlfriend, whose blood-soaked clothes are found in Harley's house. As Jess and the team try to find out more about Harley's girlfriend, they get lab results that help them get her name, Lucy, and biometrics, but that's all the information there is about her. Using what they have, they zero in on the hospital where a heavily injured Lucy was treated. Jess soon finds out that Allen Larson, a colleague of Williams, had tried to talk Lucy into leaving Harley after he had figured out that she was being abused by him.

This gives us the motive behind the series of murders committed by Harley, who is killing everyone that helped Lucy get away from him. With a body count that almost borders 10 people, Harley is ruthless and relentless in his pursuit of Lucy. He eventually ends up finding her and this is also when it's revealed that Harley attacked Lucy after finding out that she had put their daughter up for adoption while he was in prison. Having managed to remain elusive so far, Harley is cornered when he goes to meet his daughter, but he gets away before Jess can arrest him. Jess goes after him and ends up getting shot by Harley while helping Lucy get to safety.
