Two weeks after the fact, Reid is still reeling over the murder of his girlfriend, Dr. Maeve Donovan, by her stalker. His friends try to reach out to him, but he remains in seclusion, not talking to anyone. They have to figure out a way to bring him back to a state where he at least reaches out for help in dealing with his grief. As such, he doesn't accompany the team on their next case, that of two murders in San Francisco, California, where the two seemingly unrelated victims were found in public places, wrapped in clear plastic and their bodies drained of almost all their blood while they were still alive. Early in their investigation, they find two more victims who have one more similarity: their eyelids were removed. The combination of the eyelids and the body placement of all four victims leads the team to figure out what the unsub is doing with the blood. They still have to figure out why the blood is so important to the unsub to discover who he is before he kills again. Written by Huggo

The unsub is a hemophiliac who treats himself using plasma from his victims. Because his victims have differing blood types, the BAU conclude he is type AB+, universal recipient. However, unlike with whole blood, AB+ is the universal donor for plasma, and NOT the universal recipient, because only that plasma is guaranteed to not contain antibodies which would attack the proteins which define a blood type containing A, B or Rh+ See more »

Penelope Garcia: I get it, he's sad. He should be sad, with the... I'm just... I'm so worried, and... and when someone I love is hurting, it's like I hurt, too, which I know is super co-dependent, but it's just how I roll, and I feel like I should be doing something and I... I don't know what it is.

Dr. Barbara Moore
24 January 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

great episode..as usual..Dr Barbara Moore..would like to see this character evolve..Morgan seemed very comfortable with her.. She appeared to be a real Medical Examiner..some of the medical language was very on point and precise.. and the "team" could use an ME to travel with them for on scene medical information along with the fact she was very pretty has to be a major plus..also can not close without a shout out for Spencer Reid..always a fan.. longtime fan of the show which continues to make us all think and be cautious in the world around us. some say its too dark even though they gleaned a great deal from the show.. It has been and continues to be a show for those who recognize there are those people and situations out there who are dark and we learn to be safer when we have this knowledge
