Criminal Minds Season 15 Episode 7 Recap:

The seventh episode of the fifteenth season of ‘Criminal Minds’ sees Prentiss being gifted flowers by Andrew as a sweet gesture of love. However, Prentiss does not seem to like the gesture by her long-distance boyfriend and ignores his call. She gets quite distracted and out-of-focus at work because of that.

The case of the week involves a man who has murdered and decapitated three people. He shoots a message on the phone of the third victim, saying “Everything you know is wrong and this is proof.” However, when it turns out that the team would have to travel to Denver for the case, Prentiss tries to not engage in any conversation regarding the fact that Andrew is stationed there. Both of them have an awkward encounter and Prentiss lets Andrew know that they can have a conversation after the case has been solved.

The team then finds out that the killer has been targeting father figures. The team believes that he is deluded, and probably suffers from the Mandela Effect: a condition wherein false memories cause a person to have a distorted view of reality.

It turns out that the criminal is a certain George Kyle Peters who loathes himself for the death of his son during a car accident when he had been driving. Peters had gone to a coma and woken up to find his son dead which became the reason for his mental instability. He kills a father and kidnaps his two children.

The team tracks a caseworker who takes money from single fathers to give them custody of their children. Peters had also bribed this caseworker. The caseworker tells the team about a place where Peters would go with his son during the weekends. The team finds Peters there. He is going to kill one of the children, thinking that it will bring his son back to life (he is deluded, remember?). However, the team manages to stop him in time.

Then, Prentiss stays in Denver. She has dinner with Andrew and his daughter.
