Small towns aren’t perfect, and this episode of Criminal Minds proves just that, as the BAU heads to Hitchens, Virginia, to investigate after a police chief’s wife is brutally attacked.
“Full-Tilt Boogie” sees the team having to figure out what exactly the police chief is hiding. Did he attack his wife? Is his assistant police chief hiding something that could lead to the UnSub? And is the victim’s apparent addiction related to why she was beaten?

Hands down, “Derek” is Shemar Moore’s best episode of Criminal Minds. The previous episode ended with Morgan being taken on his way home, and within minutes of the opening of this one, it becomes clear that this one is going to be one of those that hurts. And hurt it does.
