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 BAU profilers after the twelfth rape-murder in two years. The latest victim was 62-year old Lupe Trejo, whose son, Miguel, 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 her son Miguel is a closet homosexual, unspeakable in the macho town. To save Miguel from being killed in prison, his sister Rosa claims Miguel's boyfriend, Roberto Gonzalez, was outside the house and noticed a social worker, either female or a cross-dresser. Atypically, the next victim, Isabella Santiago, is stabbed to death the following day. The team believes it's a rapist who became impotent, probably after being ridiculed by Milagros Villanueva a month ... Written by KGF Vissers

Goofs

Gideon states that Andrei Chikatilo was active in "Soviet Ukraine." He was instead active in and around Rostov, which was and is solidly inside Russia - in fact it is one of Russia's oldest cities. Chikatilo was born in Ukraine, but he didn't become a serial killer until late in his adult life, long after he had moved to Russia. See more »

Best episode to date!
22 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Spellbinding from beginning to end. Molly Baker was fantastic as Jessica and I hope to see her cast in more episodes. Her character needs to be brought more into the show to expand the personal lives of the main characters. Adding more human interest about the investigators into the show would be a great idea. I can see where this show has expanded the science of forensics and profiling into not only an interesting fast paced series but makes the viewer think more about how everything we do or say can be directly linked to our personality by even those people who have never met us...can be somewhat scary to thing we can't really hide anymore. Love the show and hope the series continues. Good luck.
