#4 Eli Emerges as Suspect Zero
Emma, Audrey and Kieran’s investigation saw Eli (Sean Grandillo) land atop the list of Ghost Face suspects. After looking through Noah’s collection of newspaper clippings, Emma notices a certain mourner in the background of one of the featured pictures at Will’s (Connor Weill) funeral: Eli. Running hot on the theory, Kieran (Amadeus Serafini) agrees to look through Eli’s room for further evidence. When Kieran returns to a waiting Audrey and Emma outside, he shares the stash of Audrey’s letters to Piper and the pictures of Emma as a child, which she had seen at the pig farm. They urge him to return them so they can remain a step ahead of Eli.
And if what Kieran finds out is not condemnatory enough, viewers are shown Eli breaking into the mayor’s (Bryan Batt) mansion and stealing some important documents before leaving a taunting message. Other intel garnered in this episode is that the mayor (aka Brooke’s dad) has offered Kieran’s aunt a $15,000 payoff to leave town. During her conversation with Eli it becomes increasingly clear that Kieran’s extended family is keeping some secrets and they may not all involve Ghost Face.
