A 14 year old girl is found barely living in the desert. She escaped from the custody of a self-announced "prophet" who forced her to become his 73rd wife. As the FBI finds out that the mother of the girl surrendered her daughter to the "prophet", more mysteries become obvious. Charly applies an relational network model and finds out that it represents an inbreeding chart displaying the mating behavior of the "prophet" and his followers. It turns out that the girl and her mother have the same father and that the girl was only forced to be with the "prophet" in order to lower the inbreeding coefficient of their offspring so that a cleaner bloodline can be established. The "prophet" flees with his followers into a condemned house in the desert and has to face the armed forces of the FBI in a show down. Written by nanoprobe19

Did You Know?


The brief scene in which Abner Stone kills a police officer who has pulled over his SUV was shot on a stretch of road that was also due to be used the same night by a crew from the TV show Big Love (2006), but "Big Love" canceled their shoot because the weather was unusually cold for Southern California that evening. Both this episode of Numb3rs (2005) and the series "Big Love" feature Anne Dudek playing a member of a fundamentalist polygamous cult. See more »


When Don and the other agents are walking back after getting Colby and Rachel, you can see the throw phone on the ground. In the next scene two agents are seen taking the throw phone up to the house where Abner Stone is holed up. See more »
