CM Season 8 Episode 3 “Through the Looking Glass” Promo

When one Kansas family turns up dead and another goes missing, the BAU looks for a link between the cases to find out who is behind the kidnappings and murders. Also, Hotch gets surprising news from Beth.”

Though the promo focuses on the case at hand, like usual, there is the matter of what’s coming up for Hotch and Beth. It had already been teased that Bellamy Young would be back to wrap up her character’s storyline, but Beth and Hotch are reportedly not breaking up. Instead, they’re going to explain why she’s not going to be around, and something else to look forward to with this is that Jack’s going to be in this episode as well.

The Criminal Minds season 8 episode 3 promo for “Through the Looking Glass” (below) begins with the unsub holding a gun to a kid, threatening him if the rest of the family doesn’t put on hoods. The father, mother, and daughter end up together in a room, and when the father asks “What kind of sick game are you playing?” the unsub tells him it’s not a game. So where’s the son? He’s separated from the rest of the family and tied to a chair in another room. Uh-oh, what does the unsub have planned? Will the others be able to stop it?

JJ calls it “pretty extreme” for the unsub to take the entire family, so why has he? What happened in his past? Why did he take this family? Is there a personal connection? It is possible that is the case, but what is it? Is it possible there’s a connection to both families? Could something have happened in the past that a member of each family was part of? If not, do these families just represent something for the unsub, meaning it may be even harder to figure out their unsub’s identity?

What do you think of the Criminal Minds season 8 episode 3 preview of “Through the Looking Glass”?
