Her apartment’s previous tenant, Mike Freelander, has been murdered and her apartment ransacked. So, Seth, moves in as a temporary guardian angel and questions the neighbors. She doesn’t leave snooping to the NYPD detectives but investigates Freelander’s family life and their involvement in theft and contraband smuggling.

The reason for the fiesta is that JB is moving part-time to New York City, to teach a criminology course at Manhattan University and wander around the schools in the area. Sounds legit to me.  Seth (who is back, hooray) is not pleased with the idea that Jess is renting an apartment but Jess says that she’s sick of living in hotels and she can’t just keep landing in on Grady all the time.
