Storyline

When Dr. Spencer Reid is approached in Washington, D.C. by high-school boy Nathan Harris, who attends his lectures out of fascination, he realizes only after the kid leaves he might be a serial killer, which seems to check out after having the details he mentioned verified, the victims being prostitutes marked in the flesh by a sick mind who is tortured and wants to get caught. However there seems to be another killer at work... Written by KGF Vissers

SUPERB performance by young Anton Yelchin
22 June 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

***********Contains Spoilers***************** I just watched this episode and was completely blown away by Anton Yelchin's performance. His character, which on the outside appears to have a introverted and sensitive side, reveals his cold blooded side in a dark and terrifying cry for help. Anton Yelchin plays tormented Nathan Harris, a Washington DC teen who reaches out to Dr. Reid in hopes he can help him come to grips with his dark fantasy: killing prostitutes. In the meantime, the team have their hands full in dealing with a serial killer killing a string of prostitutes. At first, young Harris is considered a suspect, but they soon learn that he's not the killer...at least not yet. With the help of Reid, Harris begins to reveal his demons and struggles with his fantasies, but he finds it's getting harder and harder to control. Dr. Reid soon finds himself drawn to the terrified Harris and endeavors to help him before it's too late.

As usual, the cast is awesome to watch, but Yelchin's performance stood out among the rest in this episode. One of the best ones i've seen so far. A 10! :)
