The episode is directed by Alex Chapple and written by Rick Eid, and Joe Halpin.

The official synopsis states: “When a prominent doctor is found dead in a ritualistic slaying, the team must race against time to hunt down a religiously motivated serial killer; Scola faces a life-or-death decision.” 

According to TV Insider’s exclusive first look, the team will be feeling the pressure on the job but also presumably feature something major for one of them off the job, with Shantel VanSanten returning as Nina Chase.

“That’s really the story that we’re telling is that it’s not just to get the girl in the end,” Boyd told TV Insider. Further adding, “There’s something deeper about what these people do and how they care about each other and that’s what’s important in their story after these three hours is that they know that they love each other in a way that they didn’t understand before.”
