The Cold Case team arrive at the disused hospital in time to find Stefan and Eve trying to escape. Boyd questions Stefan again, who is adamant that he didn't kill Olena or Briony, claiming that he only took organs from willing donors.
A frustrated Eve tries to get a confession from Stefan by tricking him into admitting that he had targeted her as his lover. Their personal relationship would mean any evidence she found would be inadmissible in court.

Would I Lie To You?, the comedy panel show hosted by Rob Brydon, with team captains David Mitchell and Lee Mack, reaches its penultimate episode.
Over a series of rounds, the teams compete head to head, as each player reveals amazing facts and embarrassing personal tales for the consideration of their rivals. Some of the yarns are true and some are not. It is the panellists' task to separate the fraudulent chaff from the genuine wheat.
Joining David this week are Olympic cyclist Sir Chris Hoy and impressionist Ronni Ancona. Teaming up with Lee are comedian and author Danny Wallace and sports presenter Gabby Logan.
To fool the opposition, panelists need quick wits and poker faces. Only those who can think on their feet will survive interrogation from the other team.
Did Nasa really ask Chris to be the first man to cycle on the Moon? Does Gabby really post birthday cards to her pets? And is a performance by Shirley Bassey the only concert that David has ever been to? All these questions, and many more, will be answered tonight.
As well as personal revelations, Would I Lie To You? debates some fascinating celebrity stories illustrated by archive footage.
Philippe Starck's mission to shake up the world of British design continues apace after last week's eliminations. Ten young British students now remain in his design school in the French capital, battling it out for the opportunity to join Starck's design agency on a six-month placement.
Programme two sends the students into a spin as Starck sets them their first real design challenge – just trying to decipher what Starck wants them to do is enough to make some of them panic. Cocksure North London boy Nebil Avas is confident he can pull off something to delight the "Master of Design". While most students seek inspiration from all over Paris to come up with a design, Nebil employs his free-thinking method, refusing to use any research tools, relying instead on his imagination alone.
Twenty-one-year-old Polly Firth is used to being top of the class – she graduated with a first-class honours degree in Product Design. However, she dislikes the wide brief and struggles as she watches everyone else progressing with the task. She leaves it to the 11th hour before coming up with an idea. Has she left it too late to think through her product thoroughly?
Tensions rise among the students as the deadline looms. The night before the presentations to Starck, Nebil and Liverpudlian Ilsa Parry are at loggerheads over Nebil's assertion that there are no competitors to match him in the house.
When D-Day finally comes, Starck is presented with 10 very different interpretations of his brief – ranging from a material that's made from dust and hair to a highly conceptual idea for a zero-gravity tunnel. However, the presentations don't run smoothly.
Less than impressed, Starck eliminates the three weakest students. But, in a turn of events, he reconsiders, sending only two home, as other members of the group step in to save a friend.
