Agent Jane had been up all night working on the recent Red John case in which Kristina Frye had been kidnapped and had gone upstairs to sleep for a bit when Agent Lisbon found him, woke him and as he groggily struggled to wake, she informed him about a shooting the night before in a motel: a recently released prisoner, Henry Dahl, in for murder had been found shot in the face eight to ten times, but with a large piece of the back of his skull missing also. Had he died of the blow to the back of his head or the gun shots? It wasn't known yet. Would Jane take the case? He thought a moment, then said he would decline, just wait this one out. At the scene, Jane perused the situation and said he didn't want to get involved, that this was just a scum bag drug dealer someone had killed, that he did not feel sorry for him. Lisbon said that he should take the case because Director Gail Bertram was there giving an interview to several tv stations there at the scene. Soon, Bertram strode over to the agents, exclaiming that he was glad Jane was on the case, that he hoped Jane would soon solve it. Jane took an instant dislike to the man, sarcastically speaking to him and then turned on his heel, Bertram staring after him...
