Storyline

The FBI profiling team is called to Florida where a seres of efficient bombs killed every single target; this rules out a terrorist or politically motivated bomber. The bombs themselves carry the signature of Adrian Bale, a master-bomber who was jailed after taking out six FBI agents in Boston, who even pushed the next button when he knew it would only worsen his sentence. Then there's a lead to an alternative scenario: master forger David Walker, who had to commit a single murder to keep out of jail but covers it up by playing the Bale copycat. Or is there a link between these two suspects, perhaps via a Internet forum which contains suspicious messages? Written by KGF Vissers

Goofs

In the scene in which the BAU in Palm Springs receive the information about the three bombs matching the bomb of the guy who blew up some FBI people in Boston, when Gideon sits down, he grabs a water bottle with the brand name "Poland Springs". In Palm Springs, FL, this would have to be imported. The same parent company owns the names "Poland Springs", "Arrowhead", "Deer Park" and "Zephyrhills". The latter is the water that is distributed in Florida. See more »

Quotes

[last lines]
Jason Gideon: [leading Bale back his jail cell] Despite the fact that you lied to us and your deal is void, I made sure to tell all your friends here how extremely willing you were to give up information on your fellow inmates. You're a rare bird, Adrian. I can't tell you how much pleasure I get just knowing I put you in this little, tiny cage. You might even call it an emotional release.

Great Ending Caps Good PB Bomber Episode
3 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There is a bomber in Palm Beach, Fla. We learn that "half of these bombers wind up blown up by their own bombs." With that in mind, one of the victims - a guy who lost a foot in one of the explosions - turns out to be a suspect.

From there, the BAU (Behavioral Analysis Unit) of the FBI - the people who make up this program - discover that whoever this bomber is, he's a copycat of a guy who is prison in Boston. That guy blew up six FBI people when "Gideon," the leader of this program, was involved. That case obviously haunts him (and has been mentioned in all three episodes) but they need this guy "Adrian Bale" (Tim Kelleher) to help find the guy in Palm Beach.

Things get really hairy at the end when a guy wearing a "necklace bomb" enters the police room and our guys have three hours to diffuse it. It's a good episode with a great ending, one of the better ones I've seen on these crime shows.
