In the Criminal Minds episode “Hamelin”, Prentiss (Paget Brewster) and the BAU team travel to Iowa to investigate the disappearance of three 10-year-old children who appear to have been abducted from their homes in the middle of the night. All the parents slept through the abductions which makes the team believe there wasn’t much of a struggle. And there were no signs of forced entry either. Luckily, they do find one lead: a surveillance video from a neighborhood park.
On a lighter note, Agent Jennifer “JJ” Jareau (A.J. Cook) receives a visit from her mother Sandy Jareau. Last time Sandy appeared on the show was in the 2014 episode “If the Shoe Fits.”
JJ’s mom Sandy Jareau on Criminal Minds is portrayed by actress Candy Clark. She’s known for her roles on Twin Peaks (Doris Truman), and in the films Zodiac (Carol Fisher), Buffy the Vampire Slayer (Buffy’s mom), At Close Range (Mary Sue), Cat’s Eye (Sally Ann), Amityville 3-D (Melanie), Blue Thunder (Kate), Q (Joan), and George Lucas’s American Graffiti (Debbie, for which she was nominated for an Oscar, SEE LINK ABOVE), among others. Criminal Minds airs Wednesdays at 10 pm on CBS, right after SEAL Team.
