SEASON 1, EPISODE 111 - A former college professor, Roy Minard (Jeffrey Nordling - "The Lone Ranger"), asks Rush to reopen a murder case. Minard's career ended in disgrace when he became the prime suspect in the violent murder of his student Holly Rickter (Kaitlin Doubleday). Although Minard admits to a love affair with Holly, he maintains his innocence and offers Rush and Valens a compelling new theory on the murder, hoping to finally clear his name and return to academia. Rush speaks with several witnesses to Holly and Minard's relationship, including a schizophrenic ex-classmate, Barry Tepler (Blake Shields), who was in love with Holly and appears to have had a strong motive for committing the crime.

SEASON 1, EPISODE 112 - Lieutenant Stillman asks Rush to investigate the 1980 unsolved murder of an 8-year-old boy. Stillman worked the case and is still haunted by it.

The detectives question a former neighborhood priest, who is now retired, and realize the priest heard the killer's confession but refuses to divulge the identity. Rush concocts a scheme to get the murderer, a former drugstore clerk who is now a successful businessman, to confess.

SEASON 1, EPISODE 113 - Rush confronts her oldest murder case yet when Sarah Tucker (Leslie Silva), the 40-year-old granddaughter of Sadie Douglas (Meta Golding), a black woman who was murdered in 1939, provides letters Sadie wrote to Sarah's mother, at one point seeming to implicate a milkman. Among the fragile, yellowing case files from the period, Rush finds a train ticket dated the night of the killing and begins to track down Sadie's surviving friends. She also learns that two milkmen who delivered to the boarding house where Sadie lived belonged to a white supremacist group and had threatened her. But when Rush finally finds one of the milkmen, now a feeble 90-year-old living in Queens, New York, she discovers the truth of what happened that night six decades ago is much more shocking than anyone imagined.

SEASON 1, EPISODE 114 - Rush and Valens reopen the unsolved killing of Arnold Collier (Lyndon Smith), a 6-year-old orphan who died in an empty field in 1958. The former orphanage where Arnold lived now operates as a day care center. The two detectives interview several nuns who still work in the building. The investigative team locates the boy's now-adult sister, Gretchen (Molly Cheek), who was sent to the orphanage with her brother when their parents died in a car accident. After further investigation, Rush and Valens realize that Arnold's records were falsified, and they soon discover that the identity of Arnold's mother could lead to the killer.
