After the title, the TV Version cuts to Robin. The Blu-ray continues with a shot of Robin but contrary to the TV Version, the Blu-ray fades in smoothly. This might imply that the Blu-ray is longer but you could not be more wrong. The fact of the matter is that the shot of Robin is insignificantly longer in the TV Version - for whatever reason.

TV Version 0.04 sec longer

The Blu-ray contains a rather long scene with Sarah and Dylan after Justin's funeral.
Dylan: "It was a beautiful service. Robin can take a little comfort in knowing that Justin was loved by a lot of people. He'll be missed."
Sarah: "Jesus, you make it sound like a popularity contest. I… I'm sorry."
Dylan: "You know, you haven't been sleeping, babe. Maybe we should go to a doctor, get some pills."
Sarah: "I can't take those, Dylan."
Dylan: "Well, you gotta do something."
Sarah: "I just keep thinking… You know, what if I'm next?"
Dylan: "Sarah. "
Sarah: "This all happened when we came back to town. You don't think I might be a target?"
Dylan: "Listen, this guy's crazy. I don't know what to think. Nobody does, OK?"
Sarah: "OK.""
In front of the police station, they bump into Cam.
Cam: "Hey, how's Robin?"
Sarah: "Yeah, not good."
Cam: "I'm sorry I couldn't be there.
Dylan: "No, it's fine. You got more important things to do."
Cam: "I've arranged to have a police officer parked out front of your house 24/7. Not that I think there's any threat… Just so you can stop worrying."
Dylan: "Thanks. Yeah, we appreciate it."
The mayor comes out of the station to hold a press conference.
Mayor: "Hi, everybody. Last night, about 19:30, an adult, age 40, Heather Louise Peterson of Waterbury, was arrested and charged with first-degree murder in the death of Justin Faysal."
The mayor's "Hi, everybody" is exclusively on Blu-ray. After that, the versions are back in sync. Well, the dialog is at least. While the mayor speeks completely on-screen in the Blu-ray Version, he starts speaking off-screen at the end of the previous shot of Robin. Furthermore, he says "Last night, at about" in the TV Version – the word "at" is missing on Blu-ray. Though the mayor then speaks on-screen in the TV Version as well, one gets to see him from the front while the Blu-ray shows him from behind. With "Heather Louise Peterson", the versions continue with identical footage.

Sonja's comment in her conversation with Brenda is longer. Putting the additional dialog aside, a few (contentwise identical) shots are slightly longer on Blu-ray.
Sonja: "The night of her accident, a piece of her skull sliced right down into her brain. So she can't eat, can't talk, can't breathe on her own... and she certainly can't hear you. But to answer your question, the boy she had a crush on was Harry Dahl."

Brenda: "Right. Harry Dull. God, she hated it when I called him that."
Sonja: "Harry's some kind of a computer guru in California, worth millions. Anyway, I'm here to Spruce Ada up. I come by every other week."
Brenda: "Oh, Sonja. Do you remember when Ada wanted to look like Twiggy and she asked us to do her makeup? And she wanted those big false eyelashes? We kept gluing her eyelids shut.

Sonja: "Brenda, why are you here?"
Brenda: "Because Ada was my best friend."
Sonja: "A best friend that you never visit."
Brenda: "I live three hours away."
Sonja: "I'm talking about before you left."
Brenda: "Oh. OK, sure. Fine, you're right. I'm a terrible friend, guilty as charged. What else do you want me to say? I'm here now. I'm trying to make up for lost time now."

Sonja: "Well, for who? For Ada? She has no idea that you're here and if it's for me, I'm not interested."
Brenda: "We used to be friends, Sonja."
Sonja: "Yep, we did. But I don’t have the capacity to help you clear your conscience."
While Brenda is leaving the room, she says: "You really have to get over something that happened decades ago."
Sonja: "I'm not the one looking for absolution."
Brenda stops: "Too bad that hunk of cement didn't fall a little more to the left."
Then Brenda finally leaves the room.

The bold-marked dialog is missing in the TV Version.

Sarah: "No, you see, according to Vaughn, last night could've been a prankster."
Robin: "Oh, a prank. Right. It's funny."
Sarah: "You should leave town, too."
Robin: "How? I've got the business and the house and I'm meeting up with my lawyer later to unravel Justin’s will which is a complete mess."
