Nora:  I didn’t wander off after the accident, Bo.  I went to the Minuteman Motel that night!

Rex brings chocolate coffee beans to Bo, but Bo’s out.  He asks Nora if Bo will ever forgive him, and while Nora understands Rex’s motivations, she doesn’t excuse his actions.  Buried in papers, she asks for Rex’s help going over the timeline of Eddie’s murder.  Others who’ve been placed at the scene have been ruled out, save for Rex and Nora.  Nora’s frustrated they have no evidence, but at least she knows she was on the side of the road following the accident.

David barrels into the mansion, yelling for Nigel, but Bo tries to rein him in.  Nigel enters, and David steamrolls him with a litany of Clint’s crimes.  Bo doesn’t think Nigel is involved, but he does believe Nigel may have information.  Nigel doesn’t think Clint is a monster as he’s seen some remorse, but Bo reveals that Joey can connect Clint and Eddie.

As David creeps out Nigel with a series of glares, Nigel remembers, thanks to missing Access Llanview, that Clint said he was working late the night of the murder, and he didn’t return until the next morning.  They realize they only have Clint’s word, and Bo thanks Nigel for his help.  Before leaving, Bo promises David he’ll be at the wedding as David’s best man.

Later, Nora flashes back to the night of the murder, but there are still holes.  Bo comes in, excited about the coffee beans, but less so when Nora says they’re from Rex.  Bo reveals that Clint is sans alibi for the murder, but they at least need a witness who can place him at the scene.  Bo is concerned when Nora freezes.  Suddenly, she remembers being back at the motel after the accident.
