The death of a performance artist leads Backstrom (Rainn Wilson) into a world of suspects he’s even more dismissive of than usual. The leading suspects in the case turn out to be the victim’s ex-girlfriend (Ever Carradine) who Backstrom nearly mounts during her web-televised life in a plastic box, after surprisingly finding common ground and a mutual attraction, and Valentine‘s (Thomas Dekker) former lover (Ray Santiago) making closing the case a little trickier than usual.

Taking place completely outside of recent events, “Terra Incognita” is memorable for the return of Taraji P. Henson as Detective Joss Carter for a single episode. As Reese (Jim Caviezel) investigates an old cold case Carter originally handled years before, Henson appears in flashbacks as well as a hallucinatory sequence where the show puts the life of its leading character in serious jeopardy. One of the most interesting ideas “Terra Incognita” deals with is the fact that both the show and Reese have over-romanticised his relationship with Carter since her death. This episode strips down those delusions forcing the former assassin to take a hard look at himself as he slowly dies in the cold alone with no one but a hallucinatory friend for company.
