Storyline

In rural Marquesa, National Guard veteran Rich Garcia is found burned in his garage, which is locked from the outside. Patrick makes widow Maddy admit an affair with fellow vet police chief Trey Piller. Mechanic Mitchell Reese tells fellow vet Dave martin died in a similar arson three years earlier. Next Wayne Rigsby saves Piller from the next fire. All were started with the same, tricky accelerant, found in vet Ben Machado's barn. Jane discovers the town's secret treasure, a murderous secret and how dangerous setting a trap can be before the killer is caught in the act. Written by Alex John

Trivia

The fictional town in which this episode is set, Marquesas, is a nod to Moby Dick author Herman Melville. Melville's book is based, in part, on his own experiences as a whaler. He joined the crew of the "Acushnet" in early 1841 but deserted since he found the conditions on board unbearable. Melville deserted the ship at the first stop, Nuku Hiva, capital of the Marquesas islands. See more »

Goofs

(at around 35 mins) During Jane's interview of Tommy (while Patrick is trying to lure the real Thomas to the surface), Agent Cho leaves the room, but within the blink of an eye he is standing behind Jane, just like the "wizard wearing an invisibility cloak" that Jane had mentioned earlier.
