While checking out the crime scene, Mo discovers a bloody oar to be the murder weapon!
What's this? BLOOD?
Okay... He'll get messy.
Just keep acting like you're scared.
Dale confesses to stealing Mr. Jesse's boat and being the last person to see him alive. Starr takes Dale in to see if the real suspect will get messy.
When Mo gets home from seeing Dale, she finds Mrs. Lana's (her adopted mother) room torn apart and no sight of her anywhere. Mo then goes to live with Dale and his mother, Miss Rose.
I'm sorry Mo, we couldn't trace the call.
The kidnapper, Slate, calls Miss Rose's house to ask for a ransom for Mrs. Lana. Deputy Marla, Starr's partner, can't trace the call.
$500,000 for this Lana girl of yours, or else she's dead!
The Colonel calls to tell Mo that Slate had captured him too, but he has escaped.
Mo! It's the Colonel. I've just escaped from Slate... Lana is still with him though. DON'T TRUST ANYONE! I need you to grab a folder from my closet and bring it to Miss Roses's house. I am heading there shortly!
While getting the envelope, Dale and Mo were confronted by Deputy Marla. She pulled a gun on them, but Mo managed to knock her out and tie her up. They figured she was working with Slate all along.
