The Behavioral Science Unit Gets a New Boss
Chief Shepard announces at the top of the season that he's retiring. In his place is Ted Gunn, a by-the-rules guy from DC. He seems interested in expanding the Behavioral Science Unit, asking Wendy and Bill to babysit Holden. Bill discreetly brings Holden back from a California hospital following his Ed Kemper hug-induced panic attack without much of a hitch. Holden is advised to keep his stress levels low, which only significantly peak when Shepard angrily reveals that he's being forced out for Holden's OPA inquiry (thanks, Gregg, for sending it in). Other than this beratement, Holden goes on interviewing serial killers as usual.
