A body is found in the woods mauled by a bear and Walt suspects that the bear was baited to attack. He and the team must track down both the bear and the person who used it as a murder weapon. When they discover that the victim was a murderer released early from prison due to overcrowding, it leads to a long list of suspects. Meanwhile, Walt must deal with Branch's uncle Lucian (guest star PETER WELLER), a former sheriff who is brought into custody after firing a shotgun in his retirement home and who can't resist
inserting himself into the investigation.
