He's rich, thus the limo. And he was in a hurry to ransack the place you didn't choose to go if you decided to go to crane's apartment. He had no motivation to get involved. It was all poor-people problems going on. Plus, if there's no big shocking revelation like that, then there's NOTHING to have happen in episode 5. All the characters and their motivations are already revealed.
And in the comix, we find out what a power-hungry, shitty sleazeball crook he really is and he is removed from Fabletown.
I say that the crooked man is working for Bluebeard.
What do YOU think, well? Huh? Well?
