Found Season 1 Episode 13 Recap
We begin with flashbacks from 2001 when Gabi (Azaria Carter) first walked into Sir’s class that year as a new student. Her extensive knowledge of Shakespeare captivates him right away. Being the student of a teacher makes her the target of bullying, but Sir (Mark-Paul Gosselaar) stops it. Gabi (Shanola Hampton) enjoys her time in the office, which she fears might be her last, as she looks at the wall display of their accomplishments. In the morning, she plans to tell everyone the truth. Arriving at the office, Mark Trent (Brett Dalton) envelops Gabi in an embrace and expresses his immense relief at having found her.
Before she can plant a kiss on his lips, he interrupts, claiming he has unanswered questions. She then reveals that she has answers—even if he won’t like them—but that she needs to consult her team first. In the end, Gabi makes it home. As her nerves begin to fray, she notices that the door to the basement is ajar and that there is blood on the door. She takes her bat and heads downstairs, only to find that Sir has departed.

Reaching Lacey (Gabrielle Walsh) and protecting her is Gabi’s top priority. Dashika, a case that had previously gone cold, has a new lead, and Lacey is calling to inform Gabi about it. You can see that she’s still with us in this photo. Gabi promises that when she sees Lacey, she will tell her everything. Rana calms Gabi down by assuring her that she must keep her mind on the investigation and her mission to rescue Dashika, while he goes in search of Sir. Even though Rana claims he can’t do or revisit some things, his husband Ethan has noticed a dramatic change in him and knows that Gabi can make him.
Whatever Rana has in mind, Ethan tries to thwart him. At four in the morning, Mark and Shaker spot Dashika at this rail station and attempt to gather more details about her, but their resources are limited.

Gambi holds a press conference for Dashika, a young girl she likes because she wants to be like Gabi. As the issue continues to gain attention, there appears to be strain among Dashika’s family. Although Jeremy has dementia, his grandma Lily and other grandparents would like to be involved. An idea regarding Dashika is brought to Mark’s attention. Dashika was allegedly in an abusive relationship, according to a witness who saw her with burn wounds on her arm. Since the burn marks on Dashika are rather ancient, Lacey deduces that she was probably abused.
Lunch with Sir and Teen Gabi is all about books; throughout their conversation, he offers her assistance with his lesson plan. Before her mother’s passing, she discusses her father and mother. His mother was murdered, as Sir reveals. He learns that the bullied youngster, Kyle, was unwell and puked up. Mark and Margaret express their concern for Gabi.

Damika is approached for an audience. Heller warned her that she would face charges of elder abuse if she persisted in probing her son-in-law when she questioned Dashika’s parents about it.
Dashika’s father is taken aback by everything that has happened, but Margaret sees that April is probably the one who abused Dashika. April has come clean and said that it was punishment, not abuse. Rana and Gabi’s secrecy is finally brought up by Lacey. Despite Gabi’s claims that they had a credible sighting of Sir, Lacey returns home despite their requests, stating that she will no longer disrupt her life. As Gabi descends the basement, armed with a file, she can’t help but imagine Sir teasing her. While waiting at the bus stop, Margaret realizes Dashika was entering town, not departing.
