SEASON 4, EPISODE 401 - Martin and Danny attempt to dodge a hail of bullets as a mercenary and his cronies try to kill their true target, an FBI detainee whom the agents are transporting. Despite some quick thinking from Martin, who uses the car as a weapon against the shooters, and Danny, who manages to shoot one of the perpetrators, their prisoner is killed, and Martin is left gravely injured. Now, Jack, Samantha and Danny try not to let their concern for Martin hinder their efforts to hunt down the mercenary, which becomes more complicated once Martin's father, FBI Deputy Director Victor Fitzgerald (guest star RAY BAKER - "Coach Carter"), and the Department of Homeland Security take active roles in the case. Meanwhile, Vivian's heart surgery appears to have been a success.
SEASON 4, EPISODE 402 - The team investigates if 15-year-old whiz kid Ryan Wallace is missing of his own accord in order to execute his elaborate plan to bomb his high school. The agents learn that the missing student is an unpopular worrier who has obsessed about safety issues since his father's fatal mugging. They initially surmise that Ryan's disappearance may have something to do with the school bullies who picked a fight with him at lunch the day prior. However, after determining that it was Ryan who wrote the ominous words "The End" on his own locker and that he created a plan to bomb the school as a means of helping them institute effective security measures, the team members wonder if he's a bomber in hiding or a victimized do-gooder. Meanwhile, a visibly weak Martin returns from his 6-week convalescence and tries to convince himself and his colleagues that he's fine. MICHAEL WELCH ("Joan of Arcadia") guest stars as Lance, a school bully.
SEASON 4, EPISODE 403 - The team's newest member, FBI rookie Elena Delgado, formerly of the NYPD, encounters a learning curve as she attempts to help search for missing 20-year-old Dina Kingston (PEYTON LIST - "Smallville," "Just Legal"). The team soon discovers that Dina is a prostitute whose ransacked apartment contains the charred remains of her black book of clients. Further investigation uncovers that Dina, who had recently attempted to commit suicide, was suddenly desperate for a large sum of money, which caused her to be much less discerning about her clients as she feverishly solicited more business. The street-savvy Elena, who had excelled in the NYPD's vice unit, initially believes this particular case is better suited for the homicide department. However, the team's subsequent leads and methods make Elena realize that, whether Dina's found dead or alive, Elena has definitely got a great deal to learn about the Missing Persons Squad. Meanwhile, Martin is becoming impatient with his slow physical recovery, and Elena and Danny are mum about how they know each other.
SEASON 4, EPISODE 404 - When the backpack and ID of missing college coed Skye Petersen are suddenly dropped off at a thrift store seven years after Jack--and ultimately the legal system--determined she was murdered by her married professor (JUSTIN KIRK - "Angels in America," "Weeds") with whom she'd just ended an affair, the team decides to reopen the case. Jack fears that he may have elicited a wrongful murder confession during an intense interrogation with the professor. The thrift store's grainy two-day-old security video shows Skye's belongings being left by a woman who looks remarkably like Skye. As the team reinvestigates this formerly high-profile case, Jack is especially eager to learn the truth, despite knowing that this new evidence may uncover a tragic mistake on his part that has already cost the professor seven years in prison.
