Patrick lets Teresa know that he sent a trap in his office, of a list of people on Red John’s list; now the person who found out the list is probably the one torturing people now, since Benjamin Marks was on the list. Patrick tells Teresa that Red John is the only one who really knows the list as they do obviously, Patrick and Teresa come to the conclusion that the police could be the ones behind this recent murder. Patrick believes that someone high up in the police force could be behind this. Teresa wants to protect the people on the list and wants Patrick to give it to her. Wayne and Grace are in bed enjoying the newly wed life, but suddenly Grace receives a call from Teresa they try to ignore it for five minutes, but she calls Wayne afterwards. It cuts to Teresa in the police station talking to Cho, Grace and Wayne about how they need to warn the people on the list to be safe and know that they are in danger. Wayne and Cho arrive at place, Wayne talks to Cho before entering the house about how him and Grace haven’t had sex yet. Wayne and Cho knock on the door and meet this very muscular bald bearded man, before he can run away after pushing through the two of them, Wayne jumps off the balcony and tackles the bald man into the pool. Wayne and Cho tell the man that he’s in danger, the man calms down and is surprised. Grace talks to Patrick about how these two people drowned in a river after a drive, Patrick doesn’t believe that this is what truly happened; he needs the woman Ruby’s address to send flowers. The two cops are both talking to each other about Benjamin Marks and how Patrick and him have had bad history, the overweight cop believes that Patrick could be behind it. Patrick arrives at the woman’s house with flowers, he says that he’s sorry for her lost and that her worked with her niece. Patrick asks the women when she last saw her niece, and it was a couple of weeks ago. Patrick starts making a bluff, about how he wants to let her know how he feels. The woman shows Patrick the personal memorial of her niece, Patrick then asks the woman to write something for him. Patrick says something poetic, and it seems that it could of been a hint that he really knows where the body is, Teresa is arriving at Richards house to warn him that his life is also in danger, Richard is in a room alone which looks like it’s for a younger person, he arrives at the door and opens it for Teresa. Richard makes quick talk and tries to close the door, but Teresa puts her foot in the way to keep it open and try to speak about his life being in danger. Richard does not take it well and doesn’t want Teresa’s help at all. Patrick calls Teresa to see how things went on her end and tells her about how everything went for him. Teresa hangs up and they’re on the case, Richard’s door gets knocked on and he is then tazed in the chest. Looks like Richard is screwed and will be the next to die.
Teresa, Patrick and Cho arrive at the scene of the crime of Richards death, it seems that Patrick is pleased that everything is going to plan for him; and knows that Richard is in for a hard time. Teresa wants to know what they will do now, Patrick says that he’ll tell her one he knows. The two police officers are sitting on the park bench drinking coffee to speak about the case, how Richard has gone missing and that he was also connected with Patrick also. The cop lets the overweight one know that he’s done research on him and wants to ask questions about him, then mentions tiger tiger tiger. The overweight cop is confused about it and doesn’t understand it, turns out it was a “test” the thinner cop tells the other overweight cop about the Red John case and more of Patrick. The thinner cop walks away, while the overweight one stays at the park bench. Patrick is sitting in an oriental restaurant to meet with Madalin, they have tea together; Madalin mentions how she’s got a gun pointed towards something important to Patrick. Patrick asks about the kids and the mentions how her aunts a delight, Madalin tells him that she knows Red John is probably after her. Patrick tells Madalin that he’s close to finding out who Red John is and needs her help, Patrick believes that Madalin is hiding something from him and that she’s been hiding it for a long time. Patrick then speaks up about how it’s important that he’s here and that he needs to know what she knows. Madalin continues to tell Patrick about how Scholtz struck a deal with another officer to have a report written on Patrick. It turns out Scholtz thought Patrick was Red John, Madalin then tells him that security has been watching him for 8-9 years. Madalin brings up that nobody can know that Patrick and her met, Patrick lets her know that he’s going to kill Red John. The thinner cop turns out to be the person who found Patrick’s fake list, he’s currently interrogating Richard; but it seems to be more like torture. He wants to know if Richard has ever seen him and then he asks if Richard is Red John. Richard shakes his head and says no, but the man doesn’t look satisfied.
Patrick arrives and wants to speak with Agent Kirkland who’s the thinner cop, Patrick wants to ask about a theory if he can ask about; he asks if the cops have been watching him for a while, Kirkland tells Patrick that they have and then asks if they took his list of suspects on the Red John case. Obviously Kirkland denies it, Patrick then leave the police station. Kirkland drives up to Patrick’s car before he leaves and asks him to get in the car to talk some more. Patrick gets into the car and Kirkland asks for his phone; Kirkand takes out something from his phone and tells him to put on his seat belt. Teresa asks Wayne and Grace if they’ve seen Patrick lately, because his phone has been turned off for a while. Kirkland takes Patrick to an abandoned place in the forest, Patrick plays it cool while being there. Kirkland shows Patrick, Richard tied to a chair alone. Richard is begging to be let go, Patrick is just looking and thinking about his next move. Richard asks Patrick about his list of Red John suspects. Teresa gets a call from Madalin, Madalin tells Teresa that she could have gotten Patrick into trouble. Madalin believes that she made Patrick do something dumb, Patrick is then shown in a chair tied being interrogated by Kirkland. Patrick tells Kirkland that he’s on the list of people who are on the list. Patrick wants to murder Red John, Patrick tells Kirkland that they can work together, but Kirkland doesn’t buy it. Teresa is talking to Madalin about Robert Kirkland, Teresa brings up about the pine needle being in Benjamin Mark’s foot and that Kirklands’ hideout is in the forest. Teresa asks Grace to find business that Kirkland could possibly own. Grace finds a cabin out in the woods. Madalin shows the guns and ammunition she has in the back to deal with Kirkland, Kirkland is still talking to Patrick. Kirkland mentions that he had a twin brother and that the his father beat him, his brother and mother. His father later killed his mother, Robert mentions how he got away; but Michael his twin stayed behind and watched their father die as a drunk. Michael then took the bottle to ease the pain also, he met a man who could help him and the man was Red John. Robert mentions that his twin drifted away further and further, he believes that Red John killed Michael. Kirkland is seriously pissed off and has a reason to kill Red John, he wants to know who the suspects are, but Patrick refuses to answer. Looks like Robert is going to torture Patrick in order to get the names on the list.
Patrick can’t tell Robert the names on the list, instead of torturing Patrick he went and cut off Richards thumb. Theresa and Madalin arrive and save Patrick from getting tortured. Madalin then cuts Patrick out of the chair, while Teresa arrests Robert. Madalin doesn’t want any one to know she was there and to not talk to each other until Red John is dead. Richard is being put into the ambulance and is clearly pissed off.

Patrick goes and talks to Robert for the last time, Robert wants Patrick to visit him after he’s done with being arrested. Grace appears in the office behind Wayne, Grace is wearing a trench coat and rented a hotel suite for later. Looks like Wayne has finally scored, they get to the elevator and make their way down while making out. a janitor enters and interrupts them. Robert Kirkland is in the back of a police van, but is stripped. The overweight cop asks to speak with Robert alone in the back, the overweight cop is a part of the organization, but Robert doesn’t believe him. Robert is asked to step outside of the van, then the overweight cop tells Robert to run. The overweight cop then shoots Robert to death.
