On tonight's The Mysteries of Laura ("The Mystery of the Watery Grave"), Laura (Debra Messing) and Capt. Santiani (Callie Thorne) are finally on the same page about something. What that something is revolves around the murder of a media baron's spouse. That baron is Terrence Van Doren, played by Jeffrey Pierce (The Tomorrow People).

In the exclusive clip below, Laura and Jake (Josh Lucas) question a very upset Van Doren about the motorcycle that ran his wife, Isabel (Nurse Jackie's Betty Gilpin), off the road.

"This wasn't an accident," Van Doren insists, after hearing it was not a car but a motorcycle that caused the damage. But what's really heartbreaking is Laura's direct explanation of why his wife was targeted: "She was driving your car. It was dark. They may have thought it was you behind the wheel." Watch the sneak peek scene below.

The Mysteries of Laura airs Wednesdays at 8/7c on NBC.
