25. Kim Is a Private Eye
KAKTM Season 3, Episode 8
Kim's habit of inserting herself into other people's business was not limited to spying on her staff. She's returned time and again to this kind of behavior, and it's never been more pronounced than the time when she joined a private investigator on the search for a missing Miami teenager.
"I have this sick, twisted fascination with investigating," she explains. "If I wasn't doing what I'm doing now, I'd be a crime scene investigator."
A 15-year-old girl named Fara has gone missing and Kim is immediately committed to helping PI Jake solve "the kidnaps, the murders [and] help families really find their truth."
Kim is in her element, scouring the girl's social-media accounts for clues about her boyfriend, whom her family believes is the reason she's missing. They discover Fara is not his first abductee; the 29-year-old man has a record and is "prostitutin' these girls." After tracking him to an apartment, the PIs back off; they can't aggravate the situation in case someone is hurt, and can't take Fara with them lest they then assume the role of kidnapper. They decide to do surveillance then hand over to law enforcement. This means "it's the end of the road for [Kim]." As Jake and a disappointed Kim drive away from the apartment complex, another investigator sets off a loud car alarm. "Way to be discreet," Kim scoffs. Already she knows better.
The episode ends with the title card: "Despite law enforcement's continued efforts to locate Fara, leads have run thin. Jake is actively looking for Fara's whereabouts."
