-FBI Agent Reede Smith suspects Jane of torturing and killing Benjamin Marx, a man who Jane once pushed things to far with to get a confession.
-Jane tells Lisbon the Marx was on a fake Red John list he wrote up, that may have been stolen from his room at the CBI.
-When Jane learns that former CBI Director Madeleine Hightower and her family were killed on vacation in Mexico, he pays his respects to her aunt and leaves a message on a memorial webstie.
-A very much alive Hightower makes contact with Jane. Fearing Red John's wrath, she faked her death. She tells Jane that the FBI has been watching him for years and giving the information to Homeland Security.
-When Jane confronts Bob Kirkland, Kirkland takes him hostage at his cabin where he's torturing Richard Haibach, another name on the fake list. Kirkland lost his twin brother to Red John and is willing to torture and kill to get his revenge.
-Hightower calls Lisbon, worried about Jane. The women track down Kirkland's cabin and rescue Jane. Reede Smith arrests Kirkland.
-While in transit, Reede confirms to Kirkland that there is a secret organization within California law enforcement. Tiger, Tiger is a code word. Then he makes Kirkland run from the van and kills him as an escapee.
