The team was investigating the murder of two people that belonged to the same conspiracy group. But the same group that seems to be the target for this Unsub were themselves proving to be a problem. They allowed the BAU to come in and talk to them however they shot down every suggestion they made and even acted like internet trolls. There had been one guy who told Rossi his latest book sucked and he hadn’t wanted to talk about anything else. So JJ tried to shut him down by reminding the group that they have said some ludicrous things in the past and they instead took it as a confirmation that there were, in fact, lizard people running the government.
But the team still tried to get through to the group and talk to them about what’s been happening when one young man claimed something in his pocket and when he went to look it turned out to be a gun. A gun that he wouldn’t put down no matter what Prentiss was telling him because he didn’t trust her. Doug thought the FBI planted a gun and so the last thing he said before he killed himself was that it was a “false flag”. Meaning he thought someone had been trying to frame him when he decided to kill himself. So the team was trying to figure out what happened and if Doug had been their Unsub all along though they couldn’t get anyone to talk to them.
The “Truthers” claimed up after Doug died and it didn’t look like none of them wanted to cooperate with the FBI. But one truther had at least been willing to talk… just for a price! Melissa Miller said she would talk to them if they allowed her to record the conversation for her podcast and so Lewis thought they should give in on this one matter if it got Melissa to open up, but Prentiss hadn’t wanted to give Melissa such power. She suspected that Melissa knew something that she was hiding and that begged question of what Melissa truly wanted. Did she want to find out why Doug did what he did or was she insinuating herself into the case for a purpose?
The team had considered the possibility of Melissa being the Unsub and so Lewis was considered to be the best person to question her because Lewis could profile her while getting Melissa to open up. But Melissa hadn’t just wanted to talk to Lewis. She wanted a proper exchange meaning she wanted to hear about the case and why the FBI believed there was a serial killer. So Lewis told the story from the beginning. She said they had gotten the call about two suspicious murders and that what made them suspicious had been the fact the two truthers had been killed by the same things they were talking about.
