Episode 2 opens with a phone call between Mia and her little sister Maya. Mia needs Maya to hold on to some evidence for her and arranges for her to come to the Fey & Co. Law offices later that evening to pick it up. However, someone else arrives at the office before Maya, and attempts to take the evidence (which is hidden inside "The Thinker" statue/clock). Somehow he knows about the evidence and kills Mia in order to keep her quiet. Maya arrives at the office as she had agreed, only to find her sister dead. Maya is discovered at the scene of the crime and is accused of the murder.
