Nonetheless, when the team analyses the footage on George, they decide he's such a good liar, he's possibly a sociopath. Cal springs the trap by wearing a wire while George describes how he'll entice Gillian into marrying him if Cal ponies up the cash. Wallowsky is waiting in the wings to drag George off to The Lightman Group, so they can lean on him hard to confess. He's steady as a rock, though, knowing Dobson will come and rescue him because of all those well connected names in his journal. He's a little less steady when Cal tells him and the now present Dobson he has that book—and George doesn't like at all that Dobson is angry with him for letting the journal out of his hands. He's less upset when Cal shows him all his ex-wives were listening to his confession; the conman apparently sincerely tells them he really loved each of them. George is a cipher Cal is determined to break.
Unfortunately, those pesky well connected names in George's little book do not want Cal anywhere near George and Wallowsky comes to warn Cal off the case, as well as indulge in a bit of flirting. While I don't dislike the character, at this point, she's starting to seem a bit pointless, because I don't believe the flirting will go anywhere—and it shouldn't, since past events make it very unlikely Cal would be seriously pursuing both Foster and Wallowsky at the same time. Therefore, Wallowsky seems more like an obvious diversion from exploring Foster and Cal and that's not interesting. Time to move on, I say.
Cal, of course, has no intention of dropping the case, which is a good thing, because it takes a turn for the worse when George's house burns down with George in it. Cal gathers the ex-wives back for a chat about their feelings about George, in case one of them took matters in her own hands and got some pretty serious payback. Again, each of the wives describes George completely differently, telling us he could be whatever each woman wanted. But only one is extremely angry at George and that's Lily, because George would have hurt her son.
Lily denies having killed George, but she is troubled about something, which Noah picks up on. He's so scared his mom killed her boyfriend, he falsely confesses himself to save her. Cal easily gets Lily to admit she did visit George the previous night, but she didn't kill him. Rather, he was furious with her and threatened her by putting his hands around her neck. Lily says she's never seen George like that before, but Cal knows he's seen a flash of that man.
