When Zoe has back-pain, M. Pearl McGuire sends her to her own Dr. Merrell. A stranger masquerades there as Dr. Quentin Jessup and gives her efficient myotherapy, deep massage, and a date. Dan and cop Leo Lombardi are presented to ex-cop Gigi Germain, who usually tracks non-criminal missing persons but needs his help within 48 hours to catch Quentin Myers, who ax-murdered his wife six months earlier; they ignore he is now Quentin Jessup. Quentin scores a B-minus with the kids (they never give an A on a first date) after an endless grilling, but Zoe is sold. Leo uses a lame excuse to 'drop by' at Zoe's and gets invited while she makes jambalaya with Quentin; after this scares Quentin, Leo asks Zoe out, but passes out drunk-sick before she can wriggle out of refusing bluntly. Dan is not amused by Gigi's brutality on their search, yet they play strip-poker; Zoe calls him before they show skin, and finally learns they are dealing with the same Quentin, but neither has heard his story yet...
