Even though there is definitely some concern about Prentiss being placed on administrative leave, the team still has a case to deal with in Criminal Minds season 13 episode 14. “Miasma” sees the BAU investigate after the New Orleans P.D. finds a mass grave inside a vandalized above-ground crypt in a local cemetery.
Watch the promo for Criminal Minds episode “Miasma”:
Check out a sneak peek of the case:
In New Orleans, the police uncovered a mass grave with 10 bodies, buried and burned in a vandalized crypt. The bodies are believed to have been placed there in the last few weeks; the tomb was off-limits due to maintenance. All the bodies were drained of blood. Are they looking at ritualistic killings?
Find out why JJ’s being made the active head of the BAU:
Though JJ wants to know why Prentiss is being placed on administrative leave, Barnes instead asks why she thinks she wasn’t chosen to be unit chief after Hotch left. Prentiss was a natural choice and she has the seniority, JJ says.
This month marks the one-year anniversary of Reid’s arrest in Mexico, and when something like that happens, the standard operating procedure is to initiate an internal audit. Barnes has been asked to go over the BAU’s caseload to make sure they’re following protocol. As team leader, Prentiss has to give a full account of the BAU’s actions, and that’s why, effective immediately, JJ is the acting head of the BAU.
