Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Celia Bryant
Detective Casey
Randall Garner
Amanda Bernero ...
Robert Greenaway


The unsub has identified the "her" in the "save her" messages as eighteen year old Rebecca Bryant, a Bostonian who has been missing for two years. However, by the BAU not following his rules, the unsub has attacked Greenaway at her home, she who is now clinging to life. As with some of the victims thus far, the unsub scrawls a note on Greenaway's wall using her blood. Morgan and J.J. are tasked with following the leads on Rebecca Bryant, while Reid is tasked with deciphering the increasingly complex puzzle, which leads to a personal connection to him. The two tasks come full circle when they both lead to a common end point, which at least identifies the unsub and the reason he contacted the BAU in the first place. The last task is to locate him before he commits his ultimate act in the puzzle. Meanwhile, Greenaway's subconscious battles with thoughts of wanting to live or die. Written by Huggo

Did You Know?


Randall Garner continually tells Reid to "Ask the question" so that he may be healed. According to Arthurian legend, Percival was to ask the Fisher King "Whom does the grail serve?" This was to lead the Fisher King to a realization of his own unworthiness, and thereby heal his wounds and allow him to receive redemption. Percival - Reid - never asks this question. See more »

Unsub: What I had to do was not my fault.
Jason Gideon: Excuse me?
Unsub: It was distasteful and barbaric.
Unsub: Who is this?
Unsub: No one else had to be hurt.
Jason Gideon: Call yourself "the Fisher King"?
Unsub: I told you there were rules.
Jason Gideon: I'm actually more interested in exactly how you got all those burns.
Unsub: Remember this next time you decide to step outside my instructions: Agent Greenaway did not have to die like that.

Input about Song at end of Fisher King II
6 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I, too was intrigued by the song at the ending of Fisher King II. I think it would have been perfect for Mandy Patinkin (Gideon) to have sung it. I very much enjoyed his singing when he was on "Chicago Hope" and while it was playing, I could almost hear him singing it although I usually am not that astute musically. If it is not forbidden, I would love to have him sing some similar song in a future show. I feel that this show will have a very long run. It is very well written and makes you feel that you can understand the people who virtually give up their personal lives so that they can bring justice to the victims. I like the quotes at the beginning and ending of the show. When I start to list who is my favorite characters, I can not because they all mesh together so well. I started taping it for me and my husband to watch originally because Mandy Patinkin was in it. I was also a very big fan of "Dharma and Greg" and I think Thomas Gibson is doing excellent in a serious role. Keep up the good work
