Trust me, you can't ever outrun who you are.

Previously on "Eyewitness"...

After Buffalo, I just wanted to end it all, and then I met you.

Well, this is my dream for you, to live a normal life.

They care about you.

Bella purchased a bottle of this stuff using Larry's credit card.

I think we're looking for a pedophile.

Okay, we've got three d*ad Vescovis.


Two kids die in a staged overdose.

We've got Bella's hair in the trunk.

She's found d*ad. The su1c1de was staged.

Her r*pe exam tests for Mithat's semen.

Sita kills Mithat...


I want you to be the one to raise Jake.

... and then kills herself. Case closed.

Until Lukas comes forward.

I was there, in the cabin.

The man you saw is still alive.

The FBI is gonna stay close to Lukas.

There is no way that guy's gonna get anywhere near him.

This cycle that we're caught up in, you do one thing to try and prevent something, then you do another thing to try and cover a mistake, and I'm just tired of living that way, and I can't turn this off.

He saw me kiss you.

It's really not that big of a deal.

It is a big deal. It's a really big deal.

My dad won't get it.

The sh**t's been spotted.

Phil, he was in the cabin with Lukas.

Helen, where are they?

I used to eat sugar packets when I was a kid.

My mom, she started this secret game for just the two of us when we were at restaurants, and whenever my dad wasn't looking, we would just sneak as many sugar packets as we could, and just stuff them into our pockets.

And then after we got home, you know, while my dad watched the TV that frigging worked, my mom and I would go upstairs, and lay on her bed, and pull out all our packets to see who got the most.
