Episode 401, "Showdown" Tonight 7|6c
SEASON 4, EPISODE 423 - When a white girl and a black boy coincidentally vanish on the same night, Jack attempts to counteract Vivian's prediction that the media and FBI will focus more on the white girl's case. Despite Jack's attempts to generate press on both cases, the girl's disappearance garners all of the media attention and, as a result, gets a steady stream of leads. As Vivian anticipated, Jack's superior, Van Doran (guest star LYNN WHITFIELD - "The Josephine Baker Story"), orders Jack to allocate more resources to follow up on the leads in the girl's case. This requires diverting FBI attention away from the search for the boy, causing his mother to question Jack.
