Storyline

Aaron 'Hotch' gets a visit from his brother Sean, who intends to abandon the plan to study law, like their late dad and Aaron. Five students aged 19 are found horribly murdered in a vacant house in Terra Mesa, New Mexico, unbound, skinned alive, one impaled alive: traditional Indian torture methods. The team quickly suspects it must be the collective work of a 'pack'. First they consider the local reservation policeman Benjamin Blackwood's son John, a teacher noted for Indian activism. His tracker skills on the murder site concludes it was not the work of real Indians, as no tribe practiced all these methods, he agrees to act as a consultant. As the killers were probably not Indian but wanted it to appear so, next suspects are the heavily armed ADU. They were founded by local businessman Roy Minton, mainly recruiting from construction, to fight the Indian land claims. A fingerprint belongs to a sixth student, Ingrid Greisen. Her parents say they didn't even know she was missing as she... Written by KGF Vissers

Goofs

In this episode it shows an Apache tribe who are dealing with murderers. During a part of the episode one of the men depicting an Apache man says that the Apache call themselves "The Dineh" which means "The People". Actually this is a Navajo word which means "The People" and the Navajo call refer to themselves as that. Furthermore, adding "The" to the beginning would be redundant because simply saying "Dineh" is more than sufficient as Dineh means "The People". See more »

Derek Morgan: Ingrid isn't catatonic anymore, but she's answering every question with only her name and Social Security number.
Aaron "Hotch" Hotchner: Like a prisoner of war.
Derek Morgan: There's more. Garcia did some checking. Ingrid hasn't been enrolled in school for over a year. She had good grades. Just suddenly dropped out and vacated her campus apartment. She left no forwarding, Hotch. We have no idea where or how she's been living.
Aaron "Hotch" Hotchner: Thanks.

Intense Story, Even If Predictable In Spots
14 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Five students in New Mexico are killed and the killings appear like those from a group not an individual.

The nature of the crimes - the victims skinned, one of them impaled while alive, not a lot of blood around, etc - all go back to violent history of the area Apache tribe. It's obviously a setup because (a) most of these crime shows (CSI always does this) have the bad guys as others than what it looks like in the first half of the show; (b) being another politically-correct TV show, you can guess who is innocent and who isn't.

In addition to the slaughter, the FBI - with the help of the local dude (who is portrayed 100 times smarter than Sherlock Holmes) - discovers a girl was kidnapped, and that at least eight people were in on the whole deal.

We then get a neat twist with the kidnappers releasing the girl and blaming the father. More interesting developments occur and winds up a fairly interesting show.
