Another woman (played by Whoopie Van Raam) threatened her with punishment if she didn’t comply with her order to strip.
When the man answered the door and heard the sound of gunfire, the buzzer went off. Before fleeing, the women noticed that the man was bleeding from a painful spot. On the phone in Budapest, Julianne (Christina Rouner) begged Kellett to come home. Kellett revealed to her mother that she was seeing a coworker and her mother’s response was, “again?” Then something happened in her past. She said Kellett was on the run. “Maybe I was sprinting toward something,” Kellett said.
After joking with Vo about the coffee shop worker being interested in her, Raines discovered that they had been on two different dates.
