The VCTF team is on the trail of a serial killer in Chicago who seems to be taking aim at people he deems corrupt. Jim Henegar, the Chicago detective investigating the murders, is reluctant to relinquish control of the case, and he becomes a hindrance to Sam and the team. The evidence leads to a judge, MacGruder, whose son was corrupted in one way or another by the three victims. At the same time, Bailey, who is still healing from the shotgun wound inflicted by his daughter, receives an unexpected phone call from Francis who is still on the run and whom he tries to persuade her to return home, but to no avail. Also, the still unseen Jack angrily rips down his wanted sketch posters from post offices and sends the VCTF a package that includes his own artistic self portrait made from the hair and teeth of his past victims.

This was actually intended as the second episode in season 2 (between 'Ambition in the Blood' and 'Primal Scream'); this accounts for plot points that are inconsistent/out of sequence. Anecdotally, the change in broadcast sequence was to allow more episodes deemed more gripping to be shown during sweeps. See more
