Brenda and the Major Crimes team are called in when a bag of body parts, the third in just a few weeks, is found. They don't quite know what to make of it and suspect that Mexican drug cartels may be moving in. When the medical examiner, Dr. Morales, reports that, in all three cases, organs such as livers, hearts and kidneys are missing, Brenda begins to believe that young men are being killed for body parts. Det. Sanchez is still caring for Ruben, the young boy whose father was recently killed during one of their investigations.
