This week on CBS’ Criminal Minds, Reid retrieves a memory from the fateful day that ultimately landed him behind bars. But maybe he would be better off to lose the memory anew?
In the above sneak peek from the episode “True North” (airing Wednesday at 9/8c), Tara (played by Aisha Tyler) pays her incarcerated colleague a visit, delivering bad news almost as soon as she arrives: there is no evidence that Mr. Scratch (or anyone) “dosed” Reid (Matthew Gray Gubler) with anything in the Mexico motel room where Rosa Medina was found slain.
Tara then prompts Reid to once again revisit the altercation that left the pill-peddling doctor dead, as an unseen figure watched. Reid struggles to do so, until something begins to crystallize in his memory — for better, or for worse. Press PLAY above to watch Reid reach this epiphany, then share your latest theory on what actually happened.
Elsewhere in this week’s episode, which was directed by cast member Joe Mantegna, the BAU is called into action after three victims are found tied to stakes in the Arizona desert.
