MEMPHIS BEAT “Lost” Season 2 Episode 3 – Dwight and Whitehead are put on the case of a missing girl that quickly leads them to her car being washed up in a river and her apparent murder. The trouble is that the suspect list is a bit long, what with her scumbag abusive husband, her former abusive father and a possible girlfriend all possibly vying for the insurance money the could from her death.

But instead of solving a murder, Dwight ends up finding young frightened girl and gets to reunite her with her dad so the two of them can work on healing their past relationship. Speaking of healing old wounds between parent and child, Rice spends most of this episode grumpier than normal after she finds out that her daughter has gotten engaged without telling. But she too starts on the long road of patching things up.

Plus, we got ourselves just a smidge more information about the mystery that is Sutton. Okay so maybe he’s not a mystery to anyone else, but he has been to me. I mean how did this guy end up on the force to begin with? Well it turns out he’s an amazing shot, which might have had something to do with it.

My favorite bits..

Dwight apologizing for giving Whitehead grief about his shooting…and then going right on ahead and doing it some more. Well, at least he apologized for some of it.

Really wanting to know what kind of home Sutton grew up in, if the smell of gunpowder reminds him of it.

Dwight doing the ‘pretending to be getting a text but really taking a picture’ thing. Smooth, very smooth.

Yeah right, “obviously” the sight was off on Whitehead’s gun. Suuuuuure. Haha.

Rice using Greenback to help her find her daughter’s engagement webpage. Hm, interesting.

“It smells like ass-crack in here.” – LOL, and thank you very much for *that* image, Whitehead.

I’m with Dwight, all that jerk’s story does prove is that he was indeed an asshole. Not convinced he murdered his wife yet, though.

Sutton using Greenback’s iPhone as leverage to get Greenback to tell him what he did for the lieutenant. Ha!

Finding out that Sutton is the best shot in the department. Okay seriously, what is up with that dude? I want back story, dammit! LOL.

Dwight having the guts to shut Rice’s door and tell her that it wasn’t fair for her to take her frustration out on them. Ballsy, Dwight. Very ballsy.

Whitehead telling Sutton that he just wanted to observe his shooting style. Well, after all we’ve heard about him, I want to see it too.

Holy Mother of…wow! Sutton really is a freaking great shot!

Dwight throwing Greenback in with Jill’s dad and husband to see if he could get a confession out of either of them. It may not have gotten the original result he wanted, but it was still pretty smart.

The guys agreeing that the dog looked like it was being held against its will, which of course meant that they had to break in.

“Hold on, I got an app for that.” (breaks window) – LOL! That was awesome.

Dwight finding Jill and telling her that everything was going to be okay.

Dwight going to Ted’s house and giving him the message from Jill..to never look for her again.

I know this is going to sound really rude, but finding out that Sutton’s family secret about shooting was “keep an empty head” really explains a lot. LOL.

Rice calling her daughter and telling her she missed her.

The fact that all the final scenes were done with Dwight singing “Always On My mind” in the background.
