A barely alive young Jane Doe is found on a cliff-side road outside of rural Lake Worth, North Carolina, she who seemingly jumped or fell off the cliff. The BAU are called in because many of her pre-fall injuries - stab wounds - are consistent with another Jane Doe body found in the area three years earlier. The BAU quickly come to the conclusion that the unsub is a sexual sadist and predator who is abducting these women and holding them captive, this latest Jane Doe who probably saw an opportunity to escape. Upon arrival in the area, the BAU discover a recently tampered with mass grave filled with other young, primarily blond, women. The latest Jane Doe, who eventually succumbs to her injuries, is ultimately identified as Angela Proctor, who was traveling with her best friend, Marcy Owens, who is also missing and presumed held captive by the unsub. The BAU come up with a suspect named Marcus Talbot, a known past sexual predator who is currently a high school art teacher in Lake Worth... Written by Huggo

Gotta love a Glock!
19 February 2019 | by dpasq-848-450917See all my reviews

The episode itself was decent, including the creepy art teacher. I was thrilled watching the performance of Hotch's Glock 17 underwater. Didn't believe myself until I "mythbusted" it. Took three shots: 1- break glass, 2- shot to create what is known as "torpedo effect", 3- shot close enough to (2) it uses the disturbed flow creating a vacuum to actually propel faster than normal. Underwater wake is appropriated using the Kelvin scale for those skeptics, it's science!
