As the team investigates the possibility that the girl's father retaliated against Eric, they also look at the families of the 19 other children with whom Eric has similar dealings. After learning that Eric lamented to his wife that he hadn't made a difference as a social worker and that he recently cleaned out his retirement account, the agents wonder if he simply left in despair. Meanwhile, Danny admits to Martin that this case hits too close to home and is dredging up bad memories of his own sad childhood. And Jack tells Samantha his big news about Anne (guest star MARY ELIZABETH MASTRANTONIO).

She was last seen leaving a gathering of fellow cancer patients with Ryan (TODD LOWE - "Gilmore Girls"), a guy who crashed the party and stole some of the attendees' prescription drugs. While the team tries to locate Ryan, who they learn is the drug-addicted boyfriend of Audrey's hospice nurse, they also want to question Audrey's boss, renowned architect Brian Gaghan (JOHN de LANCIE - "Star Trek: The Next Generation"), who had accused Audrey of stealing files and blackmailing him. Meanwhile, Vivian is flooded with disturbing memories of her own health crisis. SILAS WEIR MITCHELL ("Prison Break") guest stars as Audrey's hospice support group leader, Luke.
SEASON 5, EPISODE 511 - The team searches for a 17-year-old high school basketball star, Ted Soros, who vanishes the night he scores the winning basket and secures his team's position in the state championships. Ted's working-class immigrant parents explain that he had become an emancipated minor in order to join another school district's top-ranked team and attract the notice of college recruiters. However, the agents wonder if Ted's real objective was to move away from his drunken, abusive father, who may have had a role in his disappearance. The agents also try to determine why Ted's coach, Robert Owens (CONNOR TRINNEER - "Enterprise"), and fellow players are being less than candid about him, and they look into why Ted asked his attorney uncle to clarify when minors get tried as adults for felonies. Meanwhile, Anne (guest star MARY ELIZABETH MASTRANTONIO) delivers some sad news to Jack. MARINA SIRTIS ("Star Trek: The Next Generation") guest stars as Alexa Soros, Ted's mother.
