Criminal Minds Season 9 Episode 9 dealt with some "Strange Fruit," indeed.
The latest installment of the CBS procedural centered around a sad, emotional and gruesome (as always) story dating back to race relations in 1960s Virginia.
Unlike some episodes, we saw no over-the-top criminal or fictitious-seeming motive. The complex issue of interracial dating and the historical context hit home.
It was this true-to-life dynamic that stood out and made Criminal Minds Season 9 Episode 9 particularly powerful, even for a show where that's to be expected.
