Because of a skydiving accident, Gideon is forced to stay in the office while the team is out in the field. While in the office, a seemingly disorganized Gideon invades Garcia's work space which does not sit well with her neat and tidy sensibilities. The BAU are working on a case in a small town in Tennessee where two homicides have occurred in a 48 hours span, the first homicides there in sixty-four years. The two murders are seemingly unrelated beyond happening in the same town. The team focuses on the more brutal second killing, that of Annie Stuart, whose body was eviscerated of her liver, kidney and lungs. Because of the disembowelment, Gideon believes he understands the reasoning behind some circular blood stains at the crime scene. It isn't until another murder occurs that their theory is strengthened. However, it also unfortunately adds the connection of a seven year old boy named Wally Brisbane who has gone missing. The team are working against time in not only having to find... Written by Huggo

Did You Know?


Reid mentions Richard Trenton Chase, a paranoid schizophrenic who was convicted of murder in 1978. He started out killing and eviscerating animals and eating their entrails, and moved up to humans. The bloody rings made by the unsub's containers in this episode were found at Chase's crime scenes. He suffered from many delusions including the "alien" one mentioned by Reid. See more »


The sheet music that Wally is reading when he sings bears no relation to the song he's singing. It doesn't even have words or a vocal part. The music is actually a piano solo called "Spinning Song" composed by Albert Ellmenreich (not Alex Myers as the sheet music lists). See more »


Penelope Garcia: It seems like Eddie's entire college experience was some sort of post-addolescent rebellion... He partied like an '80s clubber. He suffered a delusional break due to meth amphetamine and rock cocaine consumption.
Aaron "Hotch" Hotchner: Wow, that is partying like an '80s clubber.

CM On A Two-Episode Losing Streak
11 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The BAU, minus its leader Gideon who stayed back with a leg injury, heads to a small town in Tennessee. After no murders in decades, there have been two grisly murders in the past 48 hours.

One is a music teacher and the little boy who was singing with her might have seen the killer outside the window. There is a third killing and the little boy winds up being kidnapped.

The killer is a totally-insane person who has been in a mental hospital recently. The mother has been too embarrassed over a longtime family reputation being ruined to even visit the son, etc.., and, of course, we get the anti-religious agenda so popular on TV these days. Anyone shown to have any faith is a nut-case killer. That's pretty much the credo of modern- day TV writers. You don't see the opposite, especially on crime shows.

After a good run, this is two sub-par episodes in a row.
