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

Trivia

The unsub in this episode mirrors Mark Hofmann, who in 1985 went on a bombing spree in Salt Lake City, Utah to conceal his forgeries of historical documents. Like Walker, he committed several unrelated bombings to throw suspicion off his trail. See more »

Derek Morgan: [showing Garcia the bomb fragments] How these things are put together can tell you how the unsub thinks.
Penelope Garcia: You sound like Gideon.

Derek Morgan: You see that section of pipe? Okay, that right there used to be part of the cap. It screwed onto these threads right here. But see, here's the thing: it had to be done very carefully because even if one tiny grain of powder got onto those threads while he was working, that little ...

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.
