...To the same moment on the talk show we left off at, five years ago. As Jane explains to the talk-show hosts how he gets a "psychic fix" on evildoers, and what an ugly, pathetic little worm Redjohn is, we see him driving back to his house late at night. Inside, he pushes a tricycle out of the way and climbs the stairs, only to find a note on the door of his bedroom. It's from Redjohn, saying that he doesn't like to be slandered, and a real psychic wouldn't need to open the door to see what had happened to his wife and child. Because he's not a real psychic, Jane opens the door, and the first thing he sees is a bloody smiley face on the wall. Apparently, Jane's wife and daughter were victims #9 and #10, five years ago? And now, as they investigate what they thought was victim #12, he's still on the case? Shouldn't he have been pulled off of it ages ago? Or do his prior knowledge of the case and unique skill set make him indispensible?
Back in Wagner's office, Jane snaps out of his flashback and decides to open up to the doc. It turns out, when he was a boy, he asked his little brother to do his chores for him, and his brother opened up an artery in his leg using the saw to cut wood. Wagner reflects for a moment, and says, "You know, that's almost exactly the same thing that happened to Johnny Cash." Jane says, "Is it really? Wow." Pause. "That's spooky." I don't know if Wagner can see through this not-so-clever ruse, but I'm pretty sure Jane just made all that up. Now I wish he'd been watching Walk the Line in his hotel room instead of the cheetah show.
At the police station, Price shows up with his lawyer to spring Tag, and gets really pissy about it... until Cho tells him that Tag was "banging [Allison] like a big bass drum." Granted, Price was being a dick about it, but Cho's ability to say the absolute wrong thing continues to astound me. Price is stunned, and is in the process of taking his high-priced attorney and going home when Rigsby decides to walk Tag down that same stretch of hallway. The Brothers McMulligan get in a screaming match, and it starts to look like neither one had any reason to want Allison dead.
Dr. Wagner's office. Wagner writes Jane a scrip for sleeping pills, but knows that everything he was just told was a lie. Jane admits it, saying that the truth is his (or rather, "mine," which is also what he said about Redjohn to Lisbon). As they leave the empty office, Jane tells him that they found out Tannen definitely kept a diary, and that he'll send the detectives back to do a more thorough search of the office in the morning. Then he hugs Wagner and exits into the night. A few minutes later, Wagner is on his knees in Tannen's ransacked office, digging through filing cabinets, and Jane waltzes back in. Turns out he palmed the card key from Wagner, although he tells Wagner the door was unlocked and he forgot his phone and... what's going on here? Wagner admits to playing detective, trying to find the diary, and Jane offers to help. He does a phony "getting a psychic fix" thing, wandering the room until he ends up on his back in front of a bookcase, reaching underneath and pulling out the red diary -- sorry, DIARY!!!! -- that he was filling in the other night! A-ha-ha! Another clever ruse!
