Storyline

The FBI team flies to Nepal, where the Senani Aadi Thakur's police team is inclined to ascribe a US yoga tourist's bloody killing to a beast, probably a yeti, which only Russ contemplates might even exist. The autopsy initially supports such theory, but concludes on an at least semi-human killer, fitting the conflicting indications found by tracker Matt. The yogi 'maharistri Pemb' was actually a Californian ex-con, but is found murdered himself, and locals keep quite about similar killings, due to Buddhist karma and to avoid scaring off tourists. Both police teams set out to search the 'killer yeti', while a profile theory links his psychopathic aggression to the recent earthquake body-count, confirmed in the cave lair.

Sympathy for the Devil?
18 May 2017 | by Johnny_WestSee all my reviews

This episode was horrible. A woman gets killed on a yoga trip to Nepal. The local police chalk it up to a Yeti, and claim that Yetis have been killing people up in the hills for centuries. The idea that an official national law enforcement agency would make such a statement regarding a murder they investigated is just awful writing.

The Nepal Police act like they are hysterical about catching a Yeti. The Nepal Police seemed to ignore everything that the FBI pointed out. That depiction of the Nepal Police seemed very unfair. Hard to believe that the Nepal Police are just forcing the blame on a mythical Yeti regardless of the evidence.

The special effects were good. This is a pretty gory episode. Unfortunately, it is ruined by the liberal preaching of the forensic pathologist doctor. Before anyone knows who or what is doing the killing, the doctor is speculating and whining about the killer being the victim too. Instead of exploring the criminal story, the episode becomes about liberal politics of how the criminal justice system deals with damaged people who become serial killers, cannibals, terrorists, etc.

This show is often very condescending to the culture of other nations. The local police are often depicted as either completely ignorant tools, or malicious, and corrupt. It would be a better show if the foreign police departments were depicted as professionals also.
