Criminal Minds” Season 10 Episode 1 “X” aired on Wednesday, Oct. 1, 2014, at 10:00 p.m. on CBS. The Season 10 premiere welcomed Jennifer Love Hewitt as Agent Kate Callahan. Read on to learn more about this episode.

The episode opened with a kid discovering a torso without the limbs. Then we saw Agent Kate Callahan (Jennifer Love Hewitt) going undercover in a pub. She left with a man named Mark and went in his place. Mark showed her photos, and before we know it, he was being arrested for child endangerment and child pornography.

Agent Kate was then introduced to the BAU team. Her first case with them involved a man who have a fetish on limbs. However, when Frank (Kerr Smith) was arrested, he claimed that he did not kill anybody. He just bought the limbs online. The seller would instruct him to go to a certain place, get the item and leave the money. That’s it. During the investigation, they learned that the suspect was revisiting.

The clues led the team to an anatomy professor. There were sketches of the torso and limbs. However, when Agent Kate and Agent JJ (A.J. Cook) take a look at the photos, they were not convinced that they got their guy. Dylan Myers seemed to be intact with his family and friends. While Garcia (Kirsten Vangsness) was running a search, the team learned that Myers was dating his student Christine Locke, who was missing and had filed a restraining order against Steven Parkett.

Meanwhile, a woman just lost her arm to Parkett.  When she recovered, she played Parkett. Then she asked him to go for a walk. When finally standing, she was successful in running away from Parkett. Fortunately, the team arrived.

Before the Agent Kate got home, she had a chat with Hotch (Thomas Gibson) and told him that it was a bit odd that the last victim was from San Diego. Then again, even if Hotch told Agent Kate that nothing seemed to point out that Parkett had a partner, he was clearly thinking it through.

The episode ended with men looking at women’s pictures, which seemed to be an auction. The latest victim was an athletic woman who helped a woman in a van with directions, and then she was taken.
