Chris AguilarCriminal Psychologist
Chris signed 'ok' with her hand to Lucian to confirm that she'll call for his help when needed. It was nice knowing that her boss has her back. It'll all depends on the situation when they get there though.
It was a pleasant surprise when Joseph defended her. Maybe it was because they were both on the science side and saw thing similarly. God knows how annoying it could be to talk logic with the other type. "Thank you."
She made a small gesture to the old doctor. Being introverted aside, who doesn't like the feeling of confirmation and approval, especially when it came from a senior.
With the doctor on her side, Sam also quickly apologized for her overreaction. Chris didn't blame her, nor was there a right or wrong in this situation. It was just the type of person Sam was - always looking out for those around her. Helpful most of the time, but not the greatest mesh with Chris' late-occuring rebellious phase. Chris stared at the older woman for a moment, before nodding. "Will do."
When the team started talking about the absent members of the team, the young psychologist's hand opened and closed a few times, as if about to do something. She didn't want Sam to be feel bad about what she said. She was the one of the few who kept trying to befriend her when most people had long given up with how closed off Chris was. In the end, her hand remained at her side.
Lucian's reaction to Darin spelt out a bad ending for her fellow newbie. It wasn't her place to comment on any of it. Work is work, and the boss is the boss. Although, it seemed like the long weekend had also taken a toll on Sam, with how much she'd misjudged the appropriate social distances already. Well, at least Chris didn't fall asleep in the bath or anything.
Sam brought the conversation back to the case at hand. She had a point. The lack of strength could explain the lacerations. Could he have targetted petit women for this reason? Does he have an inferiority complex over his lack of physical prowess? Assaulting these women would make him feel powerful. Military widows... Maybe revenge on his abuser who lost their life serving the country? To rape and kill the wife of his abuser - the need to feel power. What about abused by a family member? Oedipus complex in a military family? Spouse or love interest? A tragic love-triangle with a jock, a pretty girl, and a loser?
Chris did consider the possibility of a female assailant, but so far the evidence leaned towards a male, especially the sexual assaults part.
The plane was now in its final descent. Chris tried to pounder more on the unsub and their victims, but the reality of her being out of the office started distracting her. She decided to give herself these moments before she needed to focus. All in all, she was rearing to go the moment they land.
