ce Lorelei escape from Sacramento County Jail so easily? Someone must have helped her and Patrick Jane is keen to find out who, working his way through interviews with prison drivers to see which of them lies to him. That nod to the Red John story arc tops and tails an episode that’s mainly devoted to an intriguing kidnap plot: a rich couple have been taken hostage for a $5 million ransom. Jane is troubled by some anomalies: where has the family dog gone? Who killed the security guard? And why did people with “varietal specific stemware” drink vintage wine with a pizza?
