The Crimes Against Children unit in Maryland finds an Internet website with an auction club for the sale of incarcerated, long ago abducted boy Peter. Screening the website leads to a suspect, Grahamaz Rose, and a web-cam in his house on another captive boy. The FBI raids it and finds an older teenage minor, Kevin, formerly abused by his alcoholic father, who runs himself there a pornographic website, HUGZ, and clearly is no longer non-consenting, but accepts to help finding the younger kids by seeking contact with his pedophile viewers, which succeeds with nearby elementary school principal Howard Rawlings...

Did You Know?


The character Katherine Cole, portrayed by Mary Page Keller in this episode, was based on real-life Emily Vacher, who is currently assigned to the FBI's Albany Division, Syracuse Resident Agency. She was previously a member of the FBI's Innocent Images National Response Team and was the manager of the FBI's Endangered Child Alert Program. See more »


The auction clock shows a 29 minute difference in time from when Katie Cole is sitting at her desk in Maryland to when the team watches the live feed in their conference room in Virginia moments before Cole arrives. General flight time from Maryland to Virginia is around 30-40 minutes. Even with more efficient transportation such as a private jet (something less likely for Cole to have access to as she no longer works for the FBI) it is very unlikely that Cole gets from her desk to the conference room in half an hour.

Not quite as good as the brilliant season premiere "The Fisher King Part II), but an extremely good and at its very best scintillating episode that succeeds at doing something different from the norm for 'Criminal Minds'.

Admittedly there is much more of a personal preference for the serial killer concept, which sees more suspense and more opportunities for the psychological delving into the criminal's mind (which is really what 'Criminal Minds' is all about and what makes it work so well). This said, it is also nice to have a change in pace once in a while, and while 'Criminal Minds' attempts to do something different have had varying results "P911" is one of the best examples.

This time, "P911" covers abduction, the horrors of paedophilia and the dark side of the internet. While the paedophilia and the dark sides of the internet are not exactly novel concepts, they are important subjects to address and talk about, something that "P911" does wonderfully. The episode is essentially a race against time and is filled to the brim with tension and suspense, plus you are left disgusted and disturbed by the actions of those behind the crime.

It also has room for funny moments, such as when Elle (struggling from her trauma and showing great determination in going back to work, something that is done very well without taking too much time) is reprimanded for going to the crime scene and drops Reid in it (Reid's reaction is what makes that scene), and touching ones such as the ending, which did make me tear up. My only complaint really of "P911" is Gideon's somewhat out of character remark regarding Katie's fear of flying.

Visually, "P911" is stylish, classy and atmospheric, while the music is suitably moody, the pacing is taut without ever feeling rushed or draggy and the direction alert and sympathetic. The story and writing are dark, thought-provoking moving and tense with many twists and turns that add enormously to the intrigue.

"P911's" acting is very good all round, Mandy Patinkin and Matthew Gray Gubler add so much to the show's appeal, the mother is touchingly played and the criminals are creepy and very much detestable. Interesting to see a post-'Spy Kids' Daryl Sabara.

To conclude, scintillating and a must watch. 9/10 Bethany Cox
