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

Good episode even with the spiritualism
7 November 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

The team are off to investigate the murders of five young people who have been tortured to death at a controversial housing development site. There first suspect is a native American activist who is the policeman at the neighbouring Apache reservation. He ends up helping the team, while targeting his hostility for the FBI at Hotchner, as they track down who is using Indian warrior rites to kill off various groups of people. After a few of the 'usual suspects' are caught and questioned the killers are caught and brought to justice.

An interesting enough case, but an odd tone to the show compared to previous episodes. The last show had members of the BAU clearly affected by photos of the dried out bodies of long dead victims (which we are shown too) but there is hardly a quivering nostril at the descriptions or photos (which we don't see) of skinned alive or impaled people (including children). Gideon takes a back seat with no explanation, unusual given other shows he is the central character, but it does give Hotchner more to do, especially with his hostile activist 'friend' pointing out how Captain America he is. And it jarred to me that there was not on reference to the media or a journalist in sight given the severity and types of murders. But I suppose they just ran out of time to fit it all in.
