22 Pandora's Trunk: Part 2 As it turns out, the ominous gift in the trunk of the car was an officer of the law named Carl Jeffers. Jordan calls in the Coroner's office and heads off Woody's questions about how she knew a body was present in the car. She is subsequently kicked off of the case by an irate Garret who tells her to stay away from the case and not to involve Bug or Nigel. She later tries to circumvent this rule by attempting to involve Peter in her search for the truth.

Woody feels some substantial pressure after being told by the dead officer's partner (now a big wig at the DA's office) Tom Malden that this case is a "make or break one." Jordan later taunts the man by telling him that her finding the body was like due to the fact that she "was just lucky." This was, perhaps, a delayed reaction to the fact that it was Malden who walked Jordan into Child Protective Services when her father was arrested on suspicion of committing murder. But trust, later Max tells Malden to stay away from his daughter and Malden tells Woody to keep an eye on the Cavanaugh's. When she heads to the bar to pump her father for information, he panics at the mention of Malden's name. He explains that Jeffries and Malden were two on the force who "had a reputation" for being a bit rough. As per usual at the mention of James, he pouts and runs off leaving Jordan at a loss for how to locate her half brother. Jordan rushes over to the ME's office to respond to Nigel's phone call. Nigel wonders morosely how Jordan continues to draw him into her web of "deceit and lies" as he looks at a fingerprint on the monitor. He laments that the entire office cares for Jordan, but there is a threshold of the amount of pain one can bear. Jordan stammers through an apology and Nigel outlines that the prints inside of the car match the "phantom print" from her mother's crime scene. She begs him to bury it, but he refuses until she confesses that the print belongs to her brother. And, oh snap, Garret is behind her. She presses Garret not to give the information to Renee who is in his office. Renee demands that he choose between Jordan and her and he refuses to play that game. Peter's indignant that Jordan didn't tell him that the gun belonged to her father, but oops, she didn't know herself. We also find out that Jeffers was also under investigation by Internal Affairs (we later find it is Malden who was under investigation). Renee does not fail as an annoying character as she calls Nigel in for questioning over the "fingerprint." When confronted by Garret, she makes clear that he "can screw her, but he can't screw with her." Woody follows Max to James' apartment. Interestingly though, James is not at home cause he is lying in wait at Jordan's with a gun. James outlines that he went to see their mother who said that things were crazy and that people were after her. She gave him Max's gun to protect himself. He also clarifies that that he didn't know Jeffers was a cop; he only knew that Jeffers was trying to kill him. It is clear that James' father sent Jeffers to kill him. We later find that Malden was the lead investigator on the case, he was the last person Jordan's mother spoke to, and that he was James' father. (And so does Jordan as she lurks in the shadow). She goes to talk to Malden over scotch that is poisoned, she tells him where James is. Also Renee walks in on Garret and Lily kissing to tell him that the DA's office is bringing in the Cavanaugh's in connection with the Jeffers death. Hoyt fins out that Malden is at Jordan's apartment and prints to the rescue, but he is too late, Max already killed him
