Criminal Minds focused its investigation this week on a sad and emotional story that dated back to race relations in 1960s Virginia.
It also featured a phony confession… a false allegation… a busted water main… and a quartet of skeletons, all found in the backyard of a family's home.
Yes, a lot went down on the CBS procedural, but what made Criminal Minds Season 9 Episode 9 stand out from other installments was the real-life dynamics on which it was based.
The storyline at hand centered on a believable criminal with a powerfully believable motive, one tragically tied to the dangers of interracial dating.
