A presumed dead victim comes to during an autopsy in Rosewood season 2 episode 13. For a refresher on what happened last week, read my recap of episode 12.
Rosewood season 2 episode 13 opens on a montage. Scenes of Rosewood dealing with the news that he may be dying are intercut with three other characters’ actions: a woman named Naomi Bauer driving a car into a farmers’ market, another woman running while holding a baby and a man burying something in a green house.
At the lab, as soon as Mitchie Mendelson cuts into Naomi, they notice how much she’s bleeding. Rosewood tells Pippy Rosewood to call 9-1-1 and tell them that their victim is still alive. They’re able to revive her heart and she wakes up. Rosewood tells her, “Welcome back, Naomi.”
While Rosewood watches Naomi recover at the hospital, he imagines himself in a hospital bed. He imagines his friends and family gathered around, watching him die.
Rosewood and Annalise Villa go to the home of Emmett Townsend, a documentary director who was a rival of Naomi’s. They find a video of his murder and his body.
Naomi visits the lab to identify Emmett’s body. Mitchie and Villa explain that the body was washed and cleaned because the murderer really didn’t want them to find the crime scene, despite letting them find the body.
Later, the team recovers footage that had been deleted from Emmett’s computer. They find out that Emmett was investigating Naomi.
Villa and Rosewood tell Naomi that they have to figure out where Emmett was searching. Naomi suddenly has a seizure from a medical condition triggered by her poisoning.
The team is able to trace the location where Emmett was searching before he died. It’s a place called the John Teller murder house, where a cult leader led followers. Naomi finds a picture of herself as a baby there.
Villa brings Naomi to the precinct and tells her that they identified her mother. Ira Hornstock tells her that her mother’s name is Colleen Brady and that they believe she was killed by Teller.
The team locates Colleen’s body and is able to use it to diagnose Naomi’s genetic disorder. When Rosewood visits her to give her the diagnosis and assure her she’ll be fine, he sees her humidifier and realizes how she was poisoned.
The team realizes that Demetri, a man in Naomi’s film crew, was John Teller’s son. He poisoned her because her mother sent his dad to prison and murdered Emmett to cover it up.
At the end of episode, Rosewood visits Naomi in the hospital and surprises her by introducing her to the living relatives she has left. He imagines himself in the hospital again, but this time he imagines his family and friends being okay.
