As she waits, a man takes her photo and then abducts her, drugging her to keep her from fighting back. When he gets away, Frank learns that not only is this the man who has been harassing him with pictures of his family, but the Millennium group has known his identity long before this. As the kidnapper taunts Catherine with his rantings about how well he knows what's in Frank's mind, Frank must try to prevent his fear and range from clouding his abilities if he ever hopes to see his wife alive again.
