When Dr. Spencer Reid is approached in Washington, D.C. by high-school boy Nathan Harris, who attends his lectures out of fascination, he realizes only after the kid leaves he might be a serial killer, which seems to check out after having the details he mentioned verified, the victims being prostitutes marked in the flesh by a sick mind who is tortured and wants to get caught.

Did You Know?
At the very beginning of the episode, Dr. Spencer Reid sketches the portrait of Nathan Harris (played by Anton Yelchin

I'd like you to promise me that if your team stays on the case, you won't publish the murders
