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

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 »


Will sings the song "This Is My Father's World" with his music teacher at the beginning of the episode. The sheet music is displayed both on the piano and later spattered with the victim's blood. Although the sheet is titled correctly, the music on the sheet is not "This Is My Father's World" but is instead a beginning piano piece called "The Spinning Wheel". See more »


Mary Mays: Mr. Hotchner. Do you have children?
Aaron "Hotch" Hotchner: Yes, I do.
Mary Mays: Is there anything you wouldn't do for them?
Aaron "Hotch" Hotchner: I wouldn't clean the blood of the victims off the floor.
Mary Mays: I didn't know my son was killing anyone until he brought home that boy.
Aaron "Hotch" Hotchner: You know, Mary, sometimes what we don't do... is every bit as powerful as what we do.

Again, a weak episode
21 October 2006 | by See all my reviews

I loved the beginning of this episode. It started off so nicely and the boy was a lovely singer. It's a shame that there was then a brutal murder! I confess, I tuned out during the middle of this episode and skipped some bits. More murdered bodies are discovered and the killings appear to be cannibalistic. The team has to try and find common threads, and hope these will lead them to their suspect. I have to say, none of the witnesses or other officers seemed at all helpful! The episode shed some interesting light on a concept of family loyalty, but the ending was not fascinating - it didn't make you feel a strong "yes!" or "no!" like some shows manage to do.
