The seemingly tranquil night in the middle of a cornfield is interrupted by the revving engine of a pickup truck. You see the headlights flashing as a young girl runs desperately from the truck, which seems intent to run her down. So starts the episode of Criminal Minds, known for its no-holds-barred storytelling of sadistic murderers.
The team, assembled by an orange-haired Garcia, has stepped into the 21st century by supp ling everyone, except for Dr. Reid , with a new iPad instead of the boring yellow folder. Dr. Reid being the youngest member, acts as if he’s an old codger that can’t break out of old habits.
The team meets the Sheriff who, as usual, hates the Feds coming in on his turf after he can’t seem to find the people responsible for the women who keep showing up dead on his watch.
Meanwhile another girl goes missing and the team discover that the local strip club seems to be the common element. Said missing girl is shown handcuffed to a pole and blindfolded while three lecherous goons watch
as she tries in vain to plead her case to let her go. Of course the good-time Charlies are having none of that since snorting up a wadful has them all whacked out and ready to savage the poor girl.
At last, one of the three idiots decides he does have a conscience and wants to let the girl go. Unfortunately for him, he found his morals a little too late and the other two baddies decide it’s time to dump junior from the tribe.
Garcia, working fast and furious, seems to pluck information out of thin air, but that’s why we love her, she’s super Internet hacker woman! Piecing it together like a puzzle, it’s discovered that the grumpy Sheriff doesn’t know his own family since his son is one of the perverts in the now gruesome twosome.
When the team has their final showdown with the “unsubs” it’s the Sheriff who has to make some big decisions.
