Well, we knew something was going to happen when Jack walked in the front door of his modest residence.
It’s been trashed.
We have the clues, we know what they are looking for – that item his mother fortuitously dropped off at the travel agency.
No one knows what it is yet, but it is going to be an important part of the puzzle moving forward.
And now Rosalie has it, it means that she is in danger.
Of course, this is the time to contrast his relationship with Maryanne, and that with Rosalie. Back, before he left, he realised he had a thing for her (though is ‘thing’ the right word to use?) and had said he would meet with her when he got back.
So, a meeting is set. Without Maryanne tagging along.
In the meantime, there is that disaster called his residence to deal with, and, of course, he calls the police to report the break in.
We know where that’s going, don’t we?
