The BAU investigates a spooky local ghost story of the "Tall Man" and the clues it provides when two people go missing in the woods of East Allegheny's Dead Man's Conservatory, and a third mysteriously surfaces the following day with limited details as to what happened to her friends. To assist with the case, JJ reluctantly returns to her hometown, triggering emotional flashbacks to age 11 and her older sister's tragic death.

Symptoms of 23% of women diagnosed with schizophrenia manifest before age 19, so it is not rare in teenagers. Early symptoms include hallucinations (such as hearing voices), delusions, and disorganized thinking and speech; face blindness is not included in the list of symptoms. People with face blindness see faces (eyes, nose, lips), but they are unable to distinguish one person from another. See more
This is so stupid. What are we, twelve?
Okay, we're just having fun. It's all this is.
Hunting for a ghost in the woods is not my idea of fun.
It's not fun, it's real. And we're gonna see him if it takes all night.
All night? Are you... we left a perfectly good party for this, and I'm not freezing my ass off out here all night.
Well, fine. I'll stay out here by myself.
