The CBI, while on the scene of murder of a community security guard, happens to unearth a kidnapping. Investigating, the team learns that it could have been a case of mistaken identity (where a wrong couple is kidnapped). Jane plans and executes an elaborate scheme to catch the suspect, with positive results. Meanwhile, Jane furthers his investigation into the disappearance of Lorelei Martins (the last known confederate of Red John) from the Sacramento County Jail, by interviewing the prisoner transport drivers working at the time. Jane manages to extract a possible lead on the whereabouts of Lorelei, giving him an advantage in the hunt for Red John.
