The fifth episode of the series saw Zoe wanting to give her account of the night. Episode 6 sees her do so with her telling Danner that the reason she came to the reunion party was to let her hair down for once after being stuck in the role of a mother, wife, and high school principal. She just wanted to the fun Zoe that she was back in the day, which uses the episode portray Zoe's various personas like Stoner Zoe, Mama Bear Zoe, Tiny Rage Zoe in the form of cartoonish animation.

At the same time Detective Culp (John Early) who has been suspicious of Aniq and Yasper (Ben Schwartz) who are secretly listening in on Zoe's investigation, gets a call as he follows them about. We also know that right from the start Detective Danner, who wants to prove her caliber has been lying about being put in charge when in fact her captain said that the actual detective is on his way and will arrive in the morning. This essentially means she only has the night to solve the case.

In the end, we see Zoe's recollection of events was completely useless and unhelpful to the case. Zoe tells her that if you tell a story one way, the killer could be anybody but if you tell the story another way it could also look like nobody did it, adding that she doesn't think Aniq did it. But just as Danner was saying that Aniq is the one who looks most suspicious, Detective Culp enters the room and tells her he got a call from the captain. The episode ends with him telling Danner that she's been shut down and to stop investigating right away. Looks like the mystery is no closer to getting solved as Danner gets the boot.
