The episode begins with JJ and Morgan entering the building after the explosion. Rossi tells Strauss that they had an exit strategy already planned; no one knows about the gas lines and explosives so well. Just then the Homeland security joins them. Garcia tells them that JJ and Morgan are fine but she hasn’t seen Prentiss. Prentiss finds an old couple that was hiding. She tells them that she will get them out of here. JJ goes to search for Will. Morgan follows her. Next, we see Chris running with a bag. He gets into a police car, turns on the siren and drives away. Next, Rossi handles the media and Kevin is glad to see that Garcia is fine. JJ finds Will’s wallet and she is confused as to why they took him after they shot him. Morgan tells her that there was no blood on the floor, so he could be fine. ..
