Continuing this strand is a misnomer: it's direction differs little from trajectory of the third person narrative, neither is it uniquely so.
All of the narratives begin in a kind of action. This becomes a device to create an artificial movement in the story. Often one circles back to get the events that precipitated or created that moment of action. Here, we shall go on, and we shall understand that what led to this chase was a moment's weakness, the chance ringing of a phone while a secretary was away and everyone else at lunch. Perhaps it was a bit of office gossip, an old woman long past retirement who would die if she does not work, conversation with people at work her only outlet. In any event, Marilyn was drawn out of her office long enough. That is all we need to know. The rest becomes history waiting for its retelling.
