Ready for what’s sure to be a very creepy episode of Criminal Minds just in time for Halloween? That’s what’s coming up in next week’s season 9 episode 6, “In the Blood,” and it also looks like they’ll solve the case in time to celebrate.
In “In the Blood,” the BAU heads to Utah to investigate victims of possible ritualistic murders, and the more they uncover, the more they believe that their UnSub this wee could have a fascination with the Salem Witch Trials. It’s a good thing it’s the perfect time of the year for that! Meanwhile, Garcia puts together a “Day of the Dead” celebration at her apartment.
The Criminal Minds season 9 episode 6 promo begins with a look at a crime scene, and there’s something very Halloween-y drawn on the wall behind Rossi. Yes, it’s time for yet another disturbing UnSub, and this one wants his victims to confess their crimes. “You’re crazy!” One woman yells at him, probably sealing her fate. His victims are being branded—and he’s burning them because he believes he’s hunting witches. Oh boy. This doesn’t look like one of those cases where it’s going to be easy to get through to their UnSub. But how many women will he kill before they stop him?
