In North Mammon, a close small town, a man abducts three girls who return from the boys football pep rally, and tells them to chose which of them will be killed. Girls soccer player Polly Chambers' mother gets Quantico agent Judy Homefeldt to convince the team to take the case and local Sheriff Yates to officially invite them, but on arrival he states the girls aren't even officially missing, as the mother is an unreliable depression patient. The elaborate preparation, including soothing messages to the parents mentioning Friday, convince the team it's the work of a local, who plausibly plans something relating to the football game, a long-awaited finale. This leaves various suspects to be eliminated, and it looks like the kidnapper planted false forensic material to incriminate innocent men. When Brooke gets sick, the other two decide to sacrifice her- they are given hammers to kill her, then released near the police... Written by KGF Vissers

Strangely compelling
18 August 2010 | by See all my reviews

This episode is really two stories, one good, and one... eh, not so much. The problem is the obvious reliance on JJ's past as a star soccer player in high school. Take that out and the show is fairly good. It deviates from the over-used pattern of "serial killer with someone held in danger so the team can show up to the rescue." Instead, we've actually got a different aspect: old wounds from a small town that express themselves years later among a once close knit group of friends. Basically, their children must pay the price for walking over someone from their own past. I liked that story. I didn't like the writers' obvious attempt to incorporate JJ's past into the series' mainstream. Nothing against the actress, I just don't care what ANY of the team did before they were profilers, particularly all the way back in high school.
