Plot Point: Veronica is driving to Bakersfield when Mac calls to tell her that Hayley's "proof of life" story used in the ransom demand was posted by Hayley on her Facebook page 5 years ago.

Plot Point: Veronica calls Mr. Oxman to tell him about the Facebook post, then looks up Mr. Jackson's phone number and leaves him a message.

This made me sure the ransom was fake. I already thought it was but this clinched it.

Dawn | 57 comments Really makes you wonder how much detecting was done. And I have to give it to Mac goin through 5 years of anyone's Facebook must have taken forever!

At this point I'm not wondering if it was fake, I'm wondering who made the fake demands...

It's interesting to think about how different this case would roll out had Veronica called Lianne just to ask for Lee Jackson's phone number.

This is Mac- she probably wrote a program that searched through the posts for keywords.


message 13: by Hannah (new)

Hannah | 75 comments Yeah, Mac is definitely dedicated; 5 years worth of Hayley's Facebook timeline would've taken a long time. And yeah, I'm pretty sure it might be a little too late to save Hayley

Plot Point: Veronica questions the waitresses at the diner Murphy ate at after Hayley ran off. One waitress remembers Murphy. Neither recognize Hayley.

message 17: by Hannah (new)

Hannah | 75 comments In other words it means Hayley never went to the diner; only Murphy did

True! But Lianne asking Tanner for Mr. Jackson's phone number might have tipped off Tanner....

A small part of me was hoping she was bunkered down in the motel. And someone was bringing her food. But a bigger part of me knew...

Em (emtifahp) | 37 comments I think for me the moment I knew we weren't going to see Hayley again was when we saw the hotel. Was too much like Amelia Longpre

Plot Point: Veronica realizes that the diner is halfway between Neptune and Stanford.


message 23: by Margarita (new)

Margarita Vandorou | 56 comments Exactly like Amelia!!!

Nah, Mac is clever enough to have written a script to search her profile for specific key phrases. ;)

Me too. But I was that way the whole time.


message 28: by Tiffany (new)

Tiffany | 3 comments I hoped so too or that her boyfriend picked her up and had her stashed away somewhere, but that made no sense, so it was that moment where you kind of knew it wasn't going to end well.
