Be careful if you use a ride-share app. Or rather, if you do, don’t then go up to a car with the company’s logo and hop in because it’s faster and you don’t want to wait for your car. And if you still do that, don’t then confess your sins on the phone so your driver can overhear. That’s the lesson Criminal Minds teaches with “Drive.”
Here are the most disturbing (and frankly, most Criminal Minds-y) moments from season 11 episode 12.
