- Hi.

- Hi.

Derek? I'm just doing a

little window shopping.

I'll be back in around 20.

No rush, Chief. There's not much going on.

What about a blue cashmere scarf, Derek?

Oh, thanks, Chief!

But won't it clash with my uniform?

For Cassie.

Otherwise I pretty much have

my Christmas shopping done.

What about jewellery, Derek?

I mean, Cassie's tastes

aren't exactly traditional.

Ah, you're right.

What do you get a woman

who can conjure up anything?


Derek, I think I see someone.

I'll catch you later.


Chief Russell!

Hello, sweetheart.


Hi, you looking for someone?

I thought I saw someone who I...

knew, but...

Well, this is the season

to reach out to old friends.

Aren't you cold?

Oh, no, I just came out

to check my window display.

Doesn't that make you want to step inside?

- When did you get the automatic doors?

- I didn't.


Can you do that in uniform?

I'm the chief, I can do whatever I want.

In that case, do it again.

I've decided. The wedding

should be in April.

Hmm... April can be very unpredictable.

- So can you.

- Hmm, I suppose.

But when it comes to Christmas,

I can be very traditional.

Oh, I love the season.

Can't say the same for

everybody in my house.


You know, Christmas

really hasn't been the same

since Jenny passed away.

Yeah, they miss their mom.

I got my Christmas shopping done.

Except for you.

I have the only gift I need.

You're my bride to be, this

has to be the perfect gift.

What's this?

An astrological calendar.

For this year.

There's two weeks left.

People have a lot to do in these two weeks.

Tell me about it.

Why don't you keep it?

Jake, it's not your only gift,

just think of it as a stocking stuffer.

Thank you.

So? Any luck?

Oh, no, but I should have

a positive ID any minute now

if it's who I think it is.

No, I meant did you find

something for Cassie?

Oh, no, not yet.

It's gotta be the best Christmas gift ever.

Well, yeah, she is your fiance.

It's not that, Derek, it's...

Cassie spent a lot of sad Christmas

mornings at that foster home.

Maybe when you two

finally pick a wedding date

next year will be a little different.

We've been trying to pick

a wedding date for months.

Give me this.

Jake, how are you going to

find a wedding date next year?

This is this year's calendar.

Leon Deeks.


Leon Deeks.

In a message from State Prison,

"Leon Deeks was released from

federal prison two days ago".

I knew that's who I saw.

Served 10 years out of a 15 year sentence.

How do you know this guy?

Do you remember the Shelbyville

National Bank robbery?

- I remember hearing about it.

- He was the robber.

What do you think he's doing here?

I think he's either here to

visit his ex-wife and daughter

who still live in Middleton,


Or what?

After the robbery, I was

the one who arrested him

and sent him to prison.


"Whoa" is right.

Let's take a drive through town.

See if he's still window shopping.

How much did Deeks walk away with?


Still missing.

Are you alright?

That wind, it just loves

to open and close my door.

- Who are you?

- I'm Cassie Nightingale.

The proprietor. Welcome.

So, uh, you did all this?

Excuse me?

All this work. It's so broken down.

Oh, yeah, I suppose it was pretty run down.

I was just glad I was able

to give it a second chance.

I love second chances, don't you?

I don't know. I'm still

waiting for my first.

- Are you from around here?

- I used to be.

Then maybe you know my

fianc, Jake Russell?

Yeah, Chief Russell. Yeah, we go way back.

Are you hunting for anything in particular?
