Studio C has been relocated to accommodate Rebecca and Kevin's upcoming medical procedures. They give Lara and Toby health updates.

First on the double bill is HBO's "Who Killed Garrett Phillips." The 12-year-boy was strangled in his apartment after school and the perpetrator escaped from a third-floor window. Reminiscent of The Staircase, it's a look at race and justice in America.

Then it's a review of top-ten podcast "Room 20" which looks at the strange case of an unidentified man who has been living in a vegetative state for 15 years. Host Joanne Faryon tries to learn the name of the patient known for all these years only as “Sixty-six Garage."
