A neatly stacked pile of rocks should be a warning that something weird is upcoming for the agents of the Behavioral Analysis Unit.
That promises to be the case as Alves and JJ investigate a murder in this sneak peek of Criminal Minds Season 14 Episode 4.
In this chilling clip, there's a definite contrast in this forest near Tallahassee, Fla., between the beauty of nature and a woman's body tied to a tree.
Fortunately, Alves and JJ are aided by an inquisitive medical examiner, who has studied the crime scene and gives them a jump on their investigation of this murder.
On "Innocence," soon after the BAU steps in to help local law enforcement isolate a prime suspect for a ritualistic murder, a second person who is related to the first victim is killed under similar circumstances.
So what started as a random killing may actually be targeted murder aimed at a particular family, for a reason likely to be discovered by Garcia at about the 45-minute mark.
Speaking of Garcia, she's been a bit off so far this season.
Not in her work for the BAU. Never in her work. She's been her usual techno-whiz self.
But following her abduction by the Messiah's cult on Criminal Minds Season 14 Season 1, her attitude has changed.
Instead of her usual sunny self, she's become more, well, fatalistic. It sure seems like PTSD, despite her trying to ignore it.
But in this episode, Prentiss is concerned about Garcia's behavior and has an idea of how to help with the healing process.
It should be fascinating to see what Prentiss thinks will bring back that inner Garcia.
