Storyline

Retired BAU profiler Max Ryan is on a book tour, his book on the Keystone Killer, an unsolved case on which he worked twenty years earlier. The Keystone Killer murdered seven women in Philadelphia over a two year period, he communicating with the media through clues to murder details hidden in word search puzzles. Eighteen years ago, the murders just stopped. Ryan believes the Keystone Killer is still loose and perhaps active. Ryan currently lives in Philadelphia, he who is still working on the case unofficially. While on a tour stop in Washington, D.C., one at which Gideon attends, the Keystone Killer is also there, he who leaves a message for Ryan including two drivers licenses, one of his last known victim, and the other of another woman named Carla Bromwell, who had since been found dead. Bromwell's death is atypical to the other seven in many ways, the BAU thinking that the Keystone Killer may be devolving as a killer. Ryan inserts himself into the case. The BAU welcome his ...

Goofs

During the close-up of the Pennsylvania driver's licenses of the two victims (one who was murdered in 1987, and one that was just murdered) both licenses are digital. However, Pennsylvania didn't switch to digital licenses until the mid-1990s. See more »

The BAU" Noble Work, But An Unhealthy Profession?
13 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A retired BAU man, "Max Ryan," who a lot like Jason Gideon, is giving a talk with the presentation of a his book about a serial killer from 20 years ago. The "Keystone Killer" murdered seven women in Philadelphia and was never caught. After the talk, the lecturer is given a letter. Apparently, the killer was sitting right in the room and apparently he's back killing again as one of the women he mentions in the note is found dead.

This was a very good episode as the tense ex-BAU is emotionally involved and the current team is not as they try to figure out who this guy is and why he stayed silent for 20 years before resuming his killing with a different MO.

Without spoiling anything, I have to say this killer sure didn't look like one!

On the personal side "Ryan," I presume was supposed to show what years on the BAU team can make you into; something with no life. no family...and way too serious. His behavior doesn't go unnoticed, especially by "Elle" who worries this will happen to her.
