With the encouragement of his neighbor, Winston, Don plans to visit the 5 potential candidates to see if he can figure out which one is sender of the letter. Winston is a detective wannabe and creates a whole itinerary complete with rental car, airfare and hotels. He has also gathered the names and addresses of the women.
