The last episode of Criminal Minds saw Tatum O’Neal guest starring as a mother who felt sure her son was the unsub the FBI is looking for. In the latest case, their unsub is being called the “Bone Crusher” and he kills his victims by breaking all of their bones. While the team goes to New York to investigate, JJ stays behind with Garcia.
She decides to visit Reid in prison but the experience takes her toll seeing what her best friend is going through. After showing him a picture Henry drew, JJ heads back to work to help Garcia with the case.
Meanwhile, Reid notices an inmate has been beaten and he can’t help but want to do something about it. Calvin tells him not to get involved because of how different the rules are in the prison system. Despite this, Reid does something that could put him in danger.
This storyline only gets tougher and tougher. Now with the news that Shemar Moore will be returning for the end of the season to help with the case, we can look forward to hopefully getting Reid back home where he belongs. For now, let’s check out the top ten moments from “Assistance is Futile.”
