Case Profile for The Bear Mask

Aram is feeling the pressure of the job. But he is also suffering from underlying guilt surrounding Samar, Liz, Agnes, and fears that he is going to get everyone killed that is under his command.  The weight of the job causes Aram to realize that he is a depressed and a little anxious so he seeks out a friend of Mr. Hohman aka Red, a doctor who deals in psychedelic hypnosis.  Aram hopes to confront his issues and get himself back on track.    

Elsewere Cooper and Ressler look more into LaCroix before coming up with a dead end in LaCroix's wife however they do catch a break on the woman found dead in the blast at the Kaplan meetup point.  Turns out It wasn't Kaplan at the meetup but her sister but since she is now dead she was just as much a victim as Liz, Cooper and Red.  Meecha and Samar also make a return appearance.
