Storyline

Dotcom millionaire Dennis Kyle and his wife Lacy are bloodily slaughtered in their suburban Atlanta home, just like animals in the countryside. The police was too late, even responding within 5', to a call from the house that a certain Raphael there was about to kill the 'sinners', he left a Revelations (Bible) quote about the Pale Horse. While the team flies to Georgia, 911 gets another call about Raphael going to punish sinners who possess too much. Garcia reports an Internet video of the Kyle murder. It was made on the Kyles' private computer, with a remote-controlled web camera still active, watched by Raphael who turns it off after sending his message; as Reid suspects, he works at a computer tech support help line, where clients allow him to control their computer for help, only he leaves a Trojan horse. The team is puzzled about psychologically contradictory behavior by the perpetrators. The next victim, after a one-voice call, is a handyman who apparently intruded the Douglas ...

Goofs

When Tobias Hankel is typing in a website URL at around 23 minutes, the "browser" is actually an image in Photoshop. Photoshop's toolbar is visible to the left, and the large text indicator line, which extends above and beyond the text field, is a strong give-away. See more »

Swoosh, BADAM and Swish!
20 April 2011 | by (Berlin) – See all my reviews

Now I do not know if it is me this time, but from the intro onwards, in this episode I get annoyed at all the background noises that are supposed to make a scene more scary. Sometimes a huge *BAM!* seems kind of lost though. Then there is the obligatory shadow on the wall and at least two special effect sounds for that. Shadows are louder these days.

The logics in this episode are a bit weird, some pieces do not really fit together, however it is quite entertaining. This might not have been a gem - at all, yet I am hooked and really want to know what is going to happen (this is a two-piece episode).

Altogether this episode seems like a mumbo-jumbo of simple film making techniques for the easily-amused, with a few interesting ideas and a very likable A.J. Cook.

Favorite quote of the episode: "Wh.. Reid! Are you sure we should... Split up?" I love clichés!
