Storyline

The team is sent to St. Louis to catch two serial killers who appear to be competing against each other. They are polar opposites; one is called the Mill Creek Killer and kills middle-class women using blunt trauma and the other calls himself Hollow Man and shoots prostitutes. Meanwhile, a new team member, Emily Prentiss, reports for duty. Written by J. Rieper

Trivia

Reid mentions only three known instances where two different serial killers operated out of the same city at the same time. During 1977, both David Berkowitz (Son of Sam) and Paul Bateson were killing in New York City. In Phoenix, Arizona, in 2006, authorities were searching for both the Baseline Killer and a serial shooter. From 1991 to 1996, two different people were killing independently in New Orleans, leaving bodies in swamps. Police suspected that Russell Ellwood killed as many as 15 of the victims, but believed that another killer was responsible for the others. See more »

Goofs

When Reid discovers that the two unsubs have been communicating with each other through the newspaper classified ads, the camera zooms in on one of the ads. But the ad shown was the message that Reid writes later in the episode when he is posing as the Hollowman to lure the Mill Creek Killer to a false dumpsite. See more »

Quotes

Aaron Hotchner: [voiceover] Mahatma Gandhi once said, "Remember that all through history there have been tyrants and murderers, and for a time they seemed invincible, but in the end they always fall. Always."

IN answer to your message/mother of first prostitute
14 January 2010 | by See all my reviews

I noticed her as well..she looked so familiar.. turns out her name is Deborah Van Valkenburgh .. she played YEARS ago in The Warriors, Too Close for Comfort as Ted Knights daughter (turns out this is where her face looked familiar from so many years ago..isn't that strange?

She looks the same but just older) and in many other TV shows as well...like Star Trek Deep Space Nine as Preston Hope you get this message.. I couldn't find a "reply" button so this is the best I could do.. I kept replaying this part over and over again when I saw her because I so wanted to know who she was.. funny that's the only review this episode got. I LOVE Criminal Minds and am hooked on it, watching from season 2 and season 3 first and then I'll go back to season one.. after that I'll up to 4, 5 Chey
