The second episode of Cognition picks up just a short while after the end of the first episode. Boston FBI Agent Erica Reed (who is also a sort of psychic) has now suffered several great losses and is more pyschologically damaged than ever. But she can’t catch a break. Her next case has her attempting to track down The Wise Monkey – a serial killer who has been killing and chopping off parts of Berklee college students. Obviously, this is one of those cases that is not very pretty.
