Backstrom” Season 1 Episode 3 “Takes One to Know One” aired on Thursday, Feb. 5, 2015, at 9:00 p.m. on FOX. The team is on the case of a murdered young pastor in this latest offering. Find out the details about the episode below. But first, here’s a quick recap of what happened last time.

In Season 1 Episode 2 “Bella” (air date: Jan. 29, 2015), the Special Crimes Unit (SCU) followed leads on an arsonist who has not only destroyed a house, but also threatened a family. Backstrom (Rainn Wilson) insinuated that whoever did the crime was also stealing from the burned houses. He then asked the help of Valentine (Thomas Drekker), his snitch, to check antique shops.

Backstrom already had suspects, the D’Agostino brothers, whom he knew from way back. They stole from him when they were little kids and she’s called Bella.

The brothers came clean and admitted to the theft, but insisted that they had nothing to do with the arson. Backstrom realized that the chief investigator, Samantha Orland (guest star Angelique Cabral), was the person behind the fires and the SCU made their arrest.

Meanwhile, Backstrom returned to his hometown, where he searched for Bella based on a tip from the brothers. Turned out, she’s actually a kite. The episode ended with Backstrom happily flying her in the park, just like old times.

In this episode, the SCU will try to solve the case of a murder involving a youth pastor in the local church. They’re considering the possibility that a cult is behind this and it’s quite a tricky landscape to deal with.

Someone from Backstrom’s past will make an appearance in this episode. Amy Gazanian (guest star Sarah Chalke), the new Chief of Police recruit, will be heading the Civilian Oversight Committee.  She’s coming over to SCU to investigate questionable conducts by the team. The problem? She’s Backstrom’s ex-fiance and personal matters get in the way of their professional issues.
