Alec and the team head to Vegas to help a former colleague in The Irrational Season 1, Episode 5. Here are all The Irrational spoilers you need.

After helping to find a kidnapped girl, Alec and the team move on to helping a former colleague. While all that goes on, the situation from Alec’s past continues to get messier.

With the past, it’s clear that there is something bigger at play. The guy arrested for the bombing definitely didn’t do it. He didn’t confess until his parole hearing, and he got details of the entire thing wrong when he was tricked into talking about it. The problem is he’s not talking about what’s really going on.

That’s sure to come up again in the new episode, but what’s the case of the week for Alec to figure out? What will we learn about behavioral science in the new episode?
