“Criminal Minds” Season 9 Episode 21 “What Happens in Mecklinburg” aired on Wednesday, April 9, 2014 at 10:00 p.m. on CBS. The BAU team was looking for the common factor among the series of kidnappings near Memphis. Read on to find out more about MNG’s Criminal Minds recap of Season 9 Episode 21 “What Happens in Mecklinburg.”

Previously on “Criminal Minds” (“What Happens in Mecklinburg” Season 9 Episode 21), three people went missing and were suspected of being kidnapped. The BAU team was called in to investigate.

Michael (Dar Dixon) was the first victim he played football in Mecklinburg State. The BAU team found out that Michael and Trevor (Matthew Helfer) , the president of Beta Sigma Delta, had something in common. Trevor also went at Mecklinburg State. They also found out that, as odd as it may seem, the fraternity was into pigs. Yes, pigs! They wore pig masks. And each year, they throw a party. Don’t get us wrong. Trevor was a victim too. He was in his senior year in college. Meanwhile, the third victim, but more of a missing person, was Christy (Colleen Donovan). She was a college sophomore. The UnSub tied her hands over her head and sealed her lips with a duct tape. Last year, a guy named James got drunk and jumped off the roof. Then, the fraternity called it off.

In the woods, two men found Trevor’s body. Morgan (Shemar Moore) and JJ (AJ Cook) discovered that Trevor was tortured by making him drink hydrochloric acid and was sodomized by a foreign object. They considered the idea that maybe the torturer was a female, and they were right. But this “female” had nothing to do with James’ death. His death was the gruesome event that had happened during the last pig party.

Moreover, there was also a scene where one of the UnSubs visited a patient in a care center. From the looks of it, she was suffering from an illness, with different machines attached to her body as proof. It was briefly shown that Sheila signed the consent form to turn off the machines.

Marcus, Trevor’s roommate, was called in for questioning. Throughout the course of the interrogation, Reid (Matthew Gray Gubler) found out that Christy went to the party with Lauryn (Elly Schaefer). Marcus saw Trevor talking to two men in a pig mask. Then the men and Lauryn went down to the basement. They raped Lauryn and forced her to drink vodka but it led to alcohol poisoning. Then, the guys left her body on her front lawn.

It turned out that Sheila and Lauryn were sisters. Their mother died due to cancer seven years ago, and Sheila could no longer pay Lauryn’s medical bills.  Now you know who Sheila visited in the care center. She was trying to avenge her sister.

It was too late for the BAU team when they discovered Sheila’s location. Michael was already dead, but they managed to save Christy from her demise. Sheila blamed Christy for bringing her sister to the party.
