The episode begins outside Auburn, where a dead body is found; the man is found in a field, shot in the chest and throat slit. His name is Timothy Hartley. He was killed last night. The team is present at the crime scene. Jane arrives and Lisbon updates him. Cho tells Jane that the department has sent for Dr. Steiner; Jane teases him a lot and Lisbon warns him against it. Jane examines the body and Steiner asks him to take three steps back as this body is a “NO JANE ZONE”. He tells Steiner that he can see all he wants to. He says that Hartley is a man who deals in money; but he isn’t a banker. Hartley seems to be a social drinker but has been drinking more lately under some pressure. ..
