When Nev and Max do a little digging, they come across a profile for a Samantha Regina Davis who says she’s bi-sexual, has a son, has deaf parents, and “is good at celebrities.”

Nev finally gets Sammie on the phone and, though she’s hesitant to meet, she agrees.

According to Thoms, Sammie put together multiple fake accounts online to get more and more attention from Thoms. There was even an account with the name Reese who Sammie introduced Thoms to … At some point, Reese supposedly died of cancer, but was Reese ever even real?

Thoms realized that there was something not right about the Reese situation when the “dead Reese” favorited a tweet on Twitter. After some digging, Thoms discovered that Reese never existed. After even more digging, Thoms remembers an account called “Marissa Campaign” that could be significant.
