Storyline

The team profiles the Tommy Killer, who rapes and murders women forced to watch him in upper class houses, where he destroys status symbols. As soon as the press notices that detail, he makes a habit of quoting 17th century poetic ballads on Death conversing with its victims. They are confident enough about their profile of a resentful, skilled white middle class man to rule out a less well-organized black attacker but arrest the suspect to make Tommy manifest himself, alas by an untraceable phone call- which precisely provides a crucial clue.

In The First Four Shows, This Is The Best Episode
3 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The BAU travels to San Diego, Cal., to find and capture a serial rapist-murderer who is targeting high middle class women. He seems to know exactly when the right time to strike occurs, and he leaves messages from a medieval ballad. That is just so everyone knows it's he who is doing the killers. He obviously craves recognition.

So, the best way to get this guy out in the open and have him come to the FBI guys is to blame someone else for the murders. Enraged he isn't getting the publicity, the plan works.

This is an excellent episode: the best I've seen so far in the first season of this TV program.
