In the flashbacks it's clear Brooke only suffers a head wound, and this wound is not bleeding much. Yet, somehow, she manages to leave a blood trail all the way from the room down to the lobby, with the blood drops increasing in size. Where she falls down in the lobby, there is also a substantial blood stain, yet there was no stain left where she fell during the initial assault. See more »


Detective Mac Taylor: You ever seen this guy before?
Dot com: It's Jesse Lewis. He thinks he's got skills for battling.
Detective Don Flack: Yeah, we heard you two exchanged skills last night. You came in second place.
Dot com: Yeah, well, the judges must have been high or something. Why you asking me about Jesse? He do something wrong?
Detective Don Flack: Yeah. He stepped in front of a gun while someone else was pulling the trigger.
