Storyline

In the span of a week, the dead and beaten bodies of two Caucasian mid-teen boys are found in the aftermath of tornadoes in Wichita, Kansas. In addition, different body parts are missing from each boy, and each boy was a runaway who made money through street hustling. After dismissing the notion of the unsub wanting the authorities to believe the storms caused the pre-death trauma, the BAU determine that the tornadoes in and of themselves are part of the reason for the unsub's murder spree. After more bodies with different missing limbs are found, the BAU begins to figure out exactly what the unsub is planning on doing with the taken body parts. They get a break when there is a witness to the abduction of another teen-aged boy, albeit one with a stable family life. This latest act shows the team that the unsub is nearing the completion of his task which will take him, and by association them into chasing yet another tornado. Meanwhile, JJ and Will are having problems based on JJ's ... Written by Huggo

Trivia

The unsub is from Enid, OK, which Reid says is "just south of here" and JJ calls him a local. Wichita is about 50 miles north of the Oklahoma border. Enid is over 100 miles away from Wichita, not nearly close enough to be considered "local." See more »

Goofs

Toward the end, the RV is shown to be driving on a road that has "Bott's Dots"; tactile bumps used as center lane markers. These are only used in a handful of states where it rarely snows, California being where the Dots are most well known. They are not used anywhere in Kansas because they would tear up the snow plows.

Travis DOB 1998?!
25 August 2020 | by housetarthSee all my reviews

How was Travis born in 1998?! So he's 13? He looks at least 22 in 2011. The actor was born in 1980. What the hell am I missing here. Was this a mistake like "Oaklahoma"
