A string of recent violent activity by white supremacists in Texas causes the team to suspect the Southern Aryans group next.

After speculating that the third victim in the first shooting was likely the intended target, the team digs into her records to learn that she had texted the name of a victim at the gas station shooting, Rebecca, to a prepaid cellphone. Both victims worked at the same women’s shelter, and Rebecca had recently helped a woman named Maya who had left her abusive husband, a VP of a quasi-military security firm.

Shortly afterward, the team finds a male sexual deviant hung to death, with similar injuries as the first two victims as well as a branding on his neck. JJ notices the UnSub’s tendency to remove items from the modern era from his victims and Reid analyzes the branding to identify the mark as the seal of William Stoughton, the lead prosecutor in the Salem witch trials. They determine the UnSub is emulating the execution methods used in the trials and cross-reference Stoughton’s lineage with library volunteers as both of the female victims had recently frequented the library. Their search leads to Leland Duncan and his fixation with a book detailin

Recovering the phone of one of the initial victims helps them locate the number of a young woman, Ashley, who the victim spent the night with before he was killed. Before they can question her, she is found dead in an alley as the UnSub was forced to kill her when she stumbled upon his lair, unbeknownst to the team. The match of Ashley’s address to the teenage boy’s friend leads to the discovery that the common thread among the victims is their interaction with people who all lived in the same building.

The team identifies the getaway driver as another missing male teen and just as they hone in on his location, he ignites a car bomb which kills a traffic cop. Evidence of torture on Gavin’s body consistent with that of past abducted teen boys leads them to believe an UnSub is kidnapping and training adolescents from broken homes to carry out his agenda.

When they find pictures of Lyle with the victim, he breaks down and admits to killing both victims, but the team suspects it was a false confession after a third skeleton belonging to a man killed 35 years ago is found under the Johnsons’ shed. Shortly after, another skeleton found in the backyard is identified as a friend of Mary Ann’s father Karl, and both men belonged to a Klan chapter in the sixties.

910: The Caller
Following a series of apparent prank calls from a young child to Malcolm and Lida Taffert, the couple’s son Andy is kidnapped soon after. Reid connects the kidnapping to a cold case in which a young boy, Frankie, was abducted and killed following a string of similar calls. When the voice from the cold case matches the voice from the calls the Tafferts received, the BAU determines they are dealing with the same UnSub who is using a recording. They soon find Andy dead in the woods, having been killed mere hours after his abduction. A faint voice of a woman speaking Portuguese on the recording leads them to speculate the involvement of foreign prostitutes and they track down a woman who admits she was paid to engage in acts of S&M with an American man and his Eastern European wife. The UnSub’s pattern diverges when he abducts Lida, and the team realizes the link between she and Frankie’s mother Nadia is their Eastern European heritage. As Nadia had committed suicide, the team searches for other Eastern European

Sam’s innocence seems more likely after the team is alerted to more prostitutes killed in a similar fashion as the previous eight. Garcia notes that the hacker of the website asked to meet with “The Black Queen”, her former alias, and she realizes they are dealing with her old hacking mentor, Shane. She meets with Shane who confirms he took Sam’s case file and refuses to return it until she gives him the BAU’s profile of the killer in exchange for the file.

913: The Road Home
The team heads to Cleveland in the wake of same-day shootings that have left four dead in three separate locations. Initially thinking they are dealing with a spree killer, the BAU determines that the UnSub’s kills are rooted in vigilantism as his victims had extensive criminal backgrounds.

The tragic event sent Walsh on a downward spiral of alcoholism and isolation. The team learns that the perpetrator, Howard Clark, was killed in a prison fight shortly before his scheduled release.
