Meanwhile, a priest with mental issues of his own pegs John as an escapee. John as Dr. Baird dispenses advice over the airwaves and is a big hit with the listening audience. When Dr. Maitlin attends a seminar and meets the real Dr. Baird they decide to confront him. John sacrifices his freedom to help the unstable priest.
