"Jones" is the eighteenth episode of Season Two and the 40th overall of Criminal Minds.


Gideon and his team go to New Orleans when a case involving a serial killer believed to be a copycat of Jack the Ripper is reopened after a fourth victim is found dead, just after the murderer was presumed to be killed in Hurricane Katrina two years earlier.
