We last left off with 50% of our protagonist's love interests (Lou) standing her up for their first dinner date --apparently since he was too busy drowning himself into the ocean to attend -- and 50% (Sam the hot blond) strolling alone the beach in the dark. This was convenient for Molly, who ran out into the nighttime to find and make out with him. The first scene opens with Molly deaming about kissing Sam on the sand as the waves wash in, From Here to Eternity-style. She ponders over the fact that she doesn't know who this guy is, and trying to decide if it even matters, since she feels such a connection. So, of course, she goes for a chat with her new BFF, Lavender, the community's security guard. Lavender begins to reveal some juicy details about him, but gets cut off when the police come by. When Molly finds out that they came to investigate Lou's disappearance, she is shocked that there is more to the situation than a simple mix-up in dinner plans and goes to fill the detectives in on what she knows.
