Elizabeth visits the wealthy family of Patrick Wolcott, an old tutoring charge who infamously ran away from the family fortune as a teenager. Now, the local papers are trumpeting his return fifteen years later in connection with the news of his father William's failing health. But something is off in the Wolcott home, and after a brief reunion with her old student, Elizabeth gets the nagging feeling that the prodigal son may not be who he says he is.

Hoping to get an inside look at the situation, Neal poses as the Wolcott's new butler. It isn't long before he pegs "Patrick" as a fake, and uncovers a possible plot to make off with a trust worth $40 million. But when Elizabeth approaches William with her concerns, the savvy imposter uses William's blind love to neutralize the threat and push up the date of his score. Neal and Peter soon realize that the real Patrick is alive, and being held somewhere in the city. But with William signing over the trust in a day, the FBI has less than 24 hours to expose the imposter before he slips away with a windfall, and the Wolcott's lose Patrick again, this time for good...
