It comes out that his son discovered he was going to flee with the money that was supposed to go back to the investors. He swears to Horatio the only thing he did was slash his tires and is proved innocent when Jesse and Calleigh match the contact lens to Gary Archer, who was just discovered to also be a victim of Howard's money schemes. Ryan, having cracked the code on the ledgers, figures out the money was stashed on the plane and Horatio gets there to find Daniel already there. The truth comes out that Daniel thought he and his father were going to run away together only to find his dad was going to leave him behind and that's why he slashed the car's tires. The police take Daniel away and Horatio encourages Allison to petition the Feds that the found money be given back to Howard's victims.
