Storyline

In Houston's fifth ward, three murders don't fit the usual drug trade- and street gang-related violence pattern; apparently unrelated adult white men -construction worker, security guard and homeless- had their necks broken, abandoned in the streets near abandoned buildings. The team considers a homeless killer, possibly 'territorial' defending his hole at each time. Next victim, in a sewer, is city worker Travis Overby. Then a man survives, apparently because his young daughter was watching, she describes the white adult. After finding and SOS sign made of rubble, the team profiles a post-traumatic veteran reliving a war zone and finds a plausible suspect, Roy Woodridge, but his training makes him hard to catch... Meanwhile Reid is becoming insensitive... Written by KGF Vissers

Very emotional

An amazing episode.

It touches lots of sensible strings with the unsub's situation.

Obviously you can't avoid sympathizing with him and it really reaches you when the inevitable happens.

This makes you wonder how many people may be living like that, stuck on those memories without receiving any help.

Another reason for this episode to be very emotional is that you can see how Dr. Reid's behavior is being affected from what happened to him in last chapter, makes you wonder when is Gideon going to notice it (which of course leaves you guessing that he may have already noticed, being who he is),well, in general, poor dude.

good one guys
