    The team finds two youngsters in a parked car, apparently once engaged in what youths often do in parked cars, except they're now dead, murdered.

    After informing the parents, the two find themselves struggling to make sense of the crime and find that the young boy was almost killed earlier in a car accident which left him injured. The poor kid was in therapy and he wasn't the only client seen by this particular therapist who had been murdered.
