Frank arrives in North Dakota to investigate a series of horse murders. Normally the Millennium Group would not get involved in this, but the killings have a ritualized element to them and Frank fears that the killer may soon escalate his activities. He encounters resistance from farmers who react with disgust to his analysis of the killer's sexual motivations, and from local veterinarian Dr. Vaughn who is disgusted with the hypocrisy of farmers who mistreat and slaughter their horses asking for help when someone else kills them. Although Frank hopes to head off the killer before any human lives are lost, the man is already starting to shift his fantasies from horses to women. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <>

Yet another episode that demonstrates the depth millennium tried to have. The series eventually dwelled too much on religious conspiracies but at this point it still had great episodes about the causes of, and mental traits of serial killers. This episode in particular pointed out that resorting to violence is not powerful but being powerless to ones rage. It would be useful if all teenagers were to see this one, but only if they got the underlying message the script writer was hoping to convey. Final verdict: the closest millennium got to a straight FBI profiler type show, not an example of its later weirdness.. great episode but then again I am bias a smidgen.
