Storyline

The fake psychic having been fond slaughtered, the team is reinforced by former CBI colleague Rick Tork. After a new murder suggests the serial killer is getting bolder, while maintaining his freaky quirks, Patrick agrees, reluctantly and despite Lisbon, to act as bait by starring cockily in a live radio show. One caller calling himself Lazarus proves knowing unpublished details, but when he's traced and identified as Joe Keller, his phone proves a trap. The diversion allowed Lazarus to hit Jane's car and capture him, to test his 'psychic' talent for a surprisingly pious, yet morbid purpose, which Patrick finds out. Wylie brilliantly researches the MO's macabre quirks and drags Cho along to track down suspects in the know. Written by KGF Vissers
