Storyline

In Baltimore, Maryland, a torturer executes his victim, John Summers, after having found the Saudi women and two children he protected. When Gideon reads about Summers' suicide according to the press, he learns from his CIA-contact another counter-terrorism agent must have staged this top Middle East informant's death, and puts his profiling team on this strictly unofficial investigation for the murderous mole. The wounds show more then one torturer. Summers was working with Aaliyah Nadir, who turned informant after physical abuse by her husband Hassan, a Saudi diplomat who secretly finances terrorist organizations, and after a staged 'fatal' car accident lived with young son Faris and daughter Dalia in the US. Now Hassan is looking for them. CIA executive Bruno Hawks welcomes the BAU team at Langley, promising full cooperation, but the traitor probably works there too.

Full of plot holes and Lisa Vidal can't act but still entertaining
4 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What were they thinking in casting Lisa Vidal. Her acting is so limited. She had one expression on her face the entire episode: evil, conniving, underhanded.

But fortunately, in spite of her the episode was still somehow enjoyable.

Another minus was the script. I know they were trying to do a "24-like" episode, but really, did they also have to copy the plot holes. The most absurd thing in the episode was that they are scrambling to save the informant woman, but somehow, nobody thinks it weird to keep the three suspects in the front lines, giving them the perfect chance to kill her.

How absurd! hopefully, the plot holes will disappear next episode.
