Rural fireman Paul Satterfield is murdered shortly after a heroic fire rescue and abandoned in a marsh. Patrick suffers partial amnesia after near-drowning at the hands of a hooded man who hid there. Satterfield knew about his loveless wife's adultery with a colleague and never followed the rules, which was hell on his partner. Patrick also takes an interest in a concurrent bank-robbery nearby. Having forgotten about his family, Patrick also relapses into his medium con act. Finally he sets a trap, but now not without ulterior motive. Written by KGF Vissers

Wayne Rigsby: Huh. You want a tip? Back off.
Patrick Jane: [they get onto the elevator] I thought we were a team.
