Hour one of this two part event treats us to The Brockton College Killer, a serial killer who stalks coeds. A man, Tobias Carlysle is on trial for his life, accused of the murders. A podcast, THAW, has been advocating for him on his behalf since he was arrested. Kimberly Owens is the host, and when another girl goes missing, Tobias is less likely a suspect. A professor is a major suspect since he has been accused of illicit affairs, but we learn, after Tobias is exonerated, and Kimberly and Tobias bump uglies, that it was Kimberly THE WHOLE TIME!
Meanwhile Liz and Dembe play some rochambeau to see who will tell Red the truth about how turned him in. Liz draws the short straw and Red seeks counsel from Katarina's father Dom. Dom explains he did what he did for Katarina out of Love. In the end Red decides love and friendship are more important with Dembe, except Dembe has a different plan.
In hour two Ressler comes clean to Liz about his quest for Katarina which leads Liz to Dom, her grandfather. Dom and Liz catch up as he tells Liz the tale of the craziest but bold plan ever. A tale about a friend of the family Ilya Koslov and how he allowed Katarina, who did survive Cape May, to remain dead all these years. It is an origin story of epic proportions, IF you can believe the old KGB operative.
