An American teen who went partying in Tijuana ('TJ') with a girlfriend went missing, is then found in a public place, not the murder site, ritually painted red, and with links to a drug trade. With several cases following, none identical, overburdened Mexican police liaison Roberto Calderon puts the team on the trail of a beach based cartel surfer-bikers-gang La Huesuda. To both's horror, this compromises the cover of Jack's son Ryan Garrett as infiltrated DEA agent, and it's a race against time to get his son back to his undercover operation. Written by KGF Vissers

If you're going to watch one episode of Beyond Borders, make it this one
28 August 2017 | by SyoKennexSee all my reviews

In the seventh episode of the second season of Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders, Jack Garrett and his team are called to Tijuana after an American teenager is found dead, painted red, and displayed in the citadel centre.

As more murders start occurring, with limited similarities, Garrett and his team are asked by Officer Roberto Calderon for help, with large amounts of crimes happening throughout the city. As the plot thickens, and an old friend reappears, Garret and his team are on a time limit to find out who is behind this, and what is going on… and who might be next.

For an episode set in Mexico, I wasn't expecting too much from this. I was expecting Mexico from the American point of view, and I guess this episode sort of showed that. With a heavy focus on drug cartels and drug trafficking, there was quite a bit about this that showed the American way of thinking. However, there was also a lot of information about Mexico in this, and their religions and rituals, and it was quite informative. After researching after this episode, I found the majority of things they said about Santa Muerte was accurate, and it thrilled me to have learned more about her. This episode in particular didn't have too much of inaccuracy on religion and culture in Mexico, compared to some other episodes (such as Made In… with some incorrect language choices and incorrect facts about Bangladesh). This episode covered it all extremely well.

The acting in this episode was superb, and I was shocked. There was a lot more usual in this episode, with the return of Ryan Garrett, and both Gary Sinise and Matt Cohen did amazingly. The familial connection could be felt between the two actors, and it was heart wrenching to watch the ending with them both. Both actors did brilliant jobs and it has left me speechless; I don't think any other two actors would have been as good with these roles as Sinise and Cohen are. It simply wouldn't be the same without them.

Most episodes of Beyond Borders seem quite rushed, and I understand why; the writers have to get the scripts done as soon as possible to get them to filming, to have the season filmed and ready for the new release. However, this episode felt like a lot more time had been taken, and a lot more care was given to the script as it was written. The characters, especially the Garretts, felt like they were given more time to develop as who they were, and show the relationship between them better. This was a particularly good choice by the writers, and moved me to tears.

This is one of the better episodes of season two, and if you're going to watch any of them, I would definitely recommend it be this one.
