Hodges enlists the help of Jerome and Holly in Season 1, episode 7 of “Mr. Mercedes.”

According to the synopsis for the next episode of the Audience Network series, Hodges (Brendan Gleeson) brings Jerome (Jharrel Jerome) and Holly (Justine Lupe) back into the investigation of the jobs fair massacre after realizing that he still needs their help.

A sneak peek from the episode suggests that Hodges asks Jerome and Holly to hack Olivia’s (Ann Cusack) laptop in hopes to find any correspondence between her and the killer prior to her suicide. In the clip, Holly, manages to hack the computer of her cousin Olivia. Soon after, Holly and Jerome notice a text file, titled “Sessions,” on the desktop of Olivia’s computer.

“Does that mean anything to you?” Jerome asks.

“No,” Holly replies. “But it definitely meant something to Ollie because it’s the only file on her entire desktop that’s not organized into a folder. And Ollie did not leave things lying around for no reason.”

When Holly tells Jerome that she’s “very curious” about what’s in the file, Jerome suggests that they open it.

Meanwhile, Deborah (Kelly Lynch) confronts Brady (Harry Treadaway) with her growing concerns. “What you wanna know, mama?” Brady asks Deborah as he massages her shoulders in the trailer for the episode. But things between the two get intense when Deborah asks Brady why he’s keeping a clown mask. Will Brady finally tell his mom that he’s the man behind the jobs fair massacre?

Elsewhere in episode 7, Hodges and Janey’s (Mary-Louise Parker) connection deepens as the retired detective helps Olivia’s sister through a difficult time. As seen in the trailer, Hodges attends the funeral of Janey’s mom to condole with her.

Interestingly, Brady is sneaking around the church during the funeral. And at some point in the promo clip, a car that appears to be that of Hodges blows up. Has Brady finally managed to detonate Hodges’ car?

“Mr. Mercedes” Season 1, episode 7, titled “Willow Lake,” airs on Wednesday, Sept. 20, at 8 p.m. EDT on Audience Network. Watch the sneak peek and the trailer below:
