The VCTF is called in to assist in a stalled investigation which revolves around a series of killings in Allentown, Pennsylvania in which the victims faces have been burned off. Sam is leery to intercede for her former boyfriend, Michael Westmore, who's leading the investigation. Sam and Bailey disagree about Michael's handling of the case. Whereas Sam feels her friend should be given some slack, Bailey feels the man's performance sub-par and should not be excused. Forensic evidence shows that the victims' eyes were the specific target to the killer. Sam uses her intuition and the evidence gathered to theorize the killer did not want to be seen by his victims.
