The BAU will have its hands full with bio terrorists this week on Criminal Minds.
J.J. (A.J. Cook) and Rossi (Joe Mantegna) have Ebola — ew — on the brain when they check in with the forensics crew scrubbing their crime scene for evidence. The first victims have a lot of symptoms in common with the deadly virus that makes you vomit and cough up blood.
Their contact on the scene seems a little too excited about the potential pathogens they are going to find in the house, easily listing off close to a dozen potential spores that were used to poison the victims, but it turns out to be none of them. She gets a call in the middle of debriefing J.J. and Rossi that says the lab shut down the Ebola theory.
While that’s a relief, no one is in the clear. Turns out the unsub is using a non-contagious bio weapon to target his victims. That means there isn’t a chance of a huge outbreak or need to quarantine an entire city until the perp is found, but it means that they are specifically targeting the victims with a deadly disease. That’s not really a person you want to mess with, you know?
Criminal Minds airs Wednesdays at 10/9c on CBS.
