Criminal Minds Wiki

"Normal" is the eleventh episode of Season Four and the 76th overall of Criminal Minds.


The BAU is called to assist local law enforcement in catching a spree killer, dubbed "the Road Warrior" by the media, who is shooting blonde women as they drive along freeways in Orange County, California. The case becomes complicated because the heinous acts appear to be at random and the shooter is described as looking normal.
