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

Quotes

Aaron Hotchner: You knew he was gay.
Captain Navarro: You're a better profiler than Gideon is a lecturer.
Aaron Hotchner: You also knew that a gay man couldn't have committed this murder. That's why you asked us about the sexuality of the killer at the crime scene, you knew Miguel was innocent.
Captain Navarro: You don't understand how things work here. If I had told the Attorney General that this man is a homosexual and that is why he must be innocent, she would have laughed in my face.
Aaron Hotchner: Why did you lie to us?

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.
