The episode begins with Kelly, standing outside a club and talking on the phone with Danielle, who has ditched her for some one night stand. A man arrives in the alley and she is scared seeing the suspicious looking guy; but he soon leaves with a hooker. She then bends to pick up something that fell from her purse and she sees a dead body wrapped in a plastic sheet; she screams. Next, JJ and Garcia arrive to check on Reid; he is still mourning his girlfriend’s death. But he refuses to open the door. But he does give a sign which proves that he is conscious and fine. They leave. Morgan also leaves a message for Reid. ..
