Storyline

In Allende del Sol, a Mexican factory and tourist town, the papers write about a serial killer. The government wants that theory squashed by the profilers after the twelfth rape-murder in two years on 62-year old Lupe, whose son Miguel Trejo was arrested as a suspect. Gideon knows from a seminar the local police captain, Victor Navarro, who claims Mexican cultural emphasis on family and machismo won't permit Gideon's profiling method to work there. The Trejo murder site shows Gideon that Lupe discovered Miguel is a closet homosexual, unspeakable in the macho town. To save Miguel from killing in prison, his sister Rosa tells his younger boy-friend Roberto Gonzalez was outside the house; he noticed a social worker, female or cross-dressing. Atypically, the next victim Isabella Santiago is stabbed the following day. The team believes it's a rapist -rarely reported, let alone prosecuted- who became impotent, probably after being ridiculed by Milagros Villanueva a month before the first ... Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

The top news that Elle reads in the Mexican newspaper is a very poor translation to Spanish. It actually reads: "An elderly female assassin terrorizes local towns. The Attorney General and the authorities move it slowly", while Elle translates it as "There's a serial assassin who's killing elderly women in local towns, and the Attorney General and the authorities are moving slowly".

Goofs

Gideon states that Andrei Chaktilo lived in the "Soviet Ukraine." He actually lived in Rostov, which was and is solidly inside Russia, in fact it is one of Russia's oldest cities. Chaktilo was from the Ukraine. See more »

Too Much Bias Mars The Story
28 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A Mexican proverb: A house does not rest upon the ground it sit, but upon a woman."

That's the ending line in this overly-feminist-slanted episode where women are all victims of the "machimso" mentality that pervades Mexico, according to this program. (If I was a Mexican male watching this propaganda piece, I would quite a bit offended. Imagine them saying the opposite. It wouldn't be "tolerated.")

Anway, in the small town (pop. 20,000) of Allende del Sol, Mexico, we see murdered the 11th victim of a Mexican serial killer, something the government does not acknowledge as existing in Mexico, according to this program. Whatever. The fact is, as Gideon points, serial killers are a human problem, not a cultural one.

The killer here, who has more problems than 20 counselors could solve in a lifetime according to the BAU's profile, is a tough one to find: another of those anonymous-looking and meek guys who has big-time rage problems inside of him (or her).

The show could have been a good one without all the heavy-handed gender bias thrown into the mix.
