Celebrate the Halloween season with tonight’s all new “Criminal Minds”. The creepiest show on network television is the place to find brutal UnSubs, scary crime scenes, and Shemar Moore. With the witching season upon us tonight’s episode deals with a serial killer obsessed with the Salem With Trials. Here is the CBS synopsis for tonight’s show.
When the BAU investigates victims of possible ritualistic murders in Utah, clues lead them to believe than the UnSub they are looking for might have a fascination with the Salem Witch Trials. Also, Garcia prepares for a “Day of the Dead” celebration at her apartment.
That seems like two opposite plots, but right in the “Criminal Minds” wheelhouse. I’m sure that Garcia’s party will pop up anytime we get too overloaded with the Salem killer. The question though is what sort of killer do you get from a person obsessed by witch trials. The promo for tonight’s episode answers that by showing us a peak at the brand given women thought to be witches. That’s the “Criminal Minds” creep factor we are looking for. Here’s the clip showing the brand and scares in store.
I have no doubt that the BAU will end up saving the most attractive of the “witches” tonight, but expect a few to fall before they get there. That’s the “Criminal Minds” model. First half of the episode is snuff film for prime time audiences, and second half is where they find the bad guy. Tonight’s episode is perfect for those looking to turn off the lights and get into the Halloween mood. If you aren’t scared by the witch plot line then expect scares from Garcia’s wardrobe choices.
Here’s the information on tonight’s witching hour.
