Minus Tara who is on assignment, the team is called to Austin, Texas, where two thirtysomething women in two separate incidents were abducted, only to emerge a day later in their car with no knowledge what had happened to them since the time they entered their car before going missing. Both women had their face intricately cut with several pieces of the derma layer removed which will result in permanent scarring, and a white plastic mask next to where they awoke.

The blood tests Reid orders for Liz Meyers are a Partial Thromboplastin Time and an Activated Partial Thromboplastin time, which are both tests done to determine blood clotting factors, namely the amount of time it takes for the blood to begin to clot.

The Creatine kinase test is to determine if there is any muscle damage in the body, like in the case of myocardial infarction (heart attack), rhabdomyolysis (severe muscle breakdown which could be due to muscle atrophy from being confined), muscular dystrophy and acute kidney injury. The P.O. 4 test is testing for phosphate levels in the blood which would be used to determine if there is a vitamin or mineral deficiency and can be a indication of how recently a person has eaten.
