Storyline

In Golconda, a desert nowhere in Nevada, the team questions erudite Frank, a presumed, extremely prolific serial killer since 30 years who always takes a right rib as part of elaborate abuse before the murder, using the rape drug ketamine. He is assumed to have another victim alive hidden, missing Katherine Hale. He seems somehow to find his preys, apparently without common characteristics, along an Interstate road, often passing trough Golconda, but why and traveling unnoticed how? Survivor Crazy Jane is found, presumably the only one, but she believes to have been abducted by aliens. Frank is released for lack of proof and acts daringly... Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

The scene with the head in a bag is similar to one of the final scenes in the David Fincher movie Se7en that involves a head in a box. In both cases, the killer enjoys teasing people about what might be in the box. Frank hints to a police officer that the head might belong to his wife. In the movie, the head actually did belong to a police detective's wife. See more »

Want a strawberry milkshake?
20 April 2011 | by (Berlin) – See all my reviews

Watching Gideon at work has never been this interesting. This episode is special from the very beginning, as the happenings unfold before the viewer in flashbacks - we know the unsub from the start. As far as I can recall this has never been done to such extend and it makes the episode very exciting. Once more an episode refrains from using the famous "from picture to crime scene"-zoom but there are many interesting shots, particularly a simple mirror-shot that shows what the victims see.

What disappointed me was the end. I would agree that it is "necessary" in the course of the storyline but it just does not seem very realistic to me.

This episode is a MUST for every Criminal Minds enthusiast and despite the end it is remarkably done.

Favorite quote of the episode: "[...]but on the inside, we all look the same." (literally meaning the inside of a body)
