In Bridgewater, Florida, nineteen year old Abby Kelton is found dead, the lower half of her body eaten by alligators. Of those parts of her remains still intact, the BAU know all her fingers were cut off at the knuckles, her throat slashed, and religious based satanic symbols carved into her chest. Murders purported to have a satanic ritual component are Rossi's specialty, "purported" as his published theory is that satanic cults do not exist. Because of the religious nature of the case, the authorities interview Father Marks, the pastor at the local church. During the investigation, two other women from Father Mark's congregation go missing. At the medical examiner's officer, they also learn that Abby's stomach contents include ten fingers from tip to knuckle. However, each finger belongs to ten separate individuals, and none of them are hers. When another dead body surfaces at Father Mark's church - that person who fits the type of those people identified as belonging to the fingers... Written by Huggo

Did You Know?


Floyd Feylinn Ferell initials are FFF, and F is the sixth letter in the alphabet. Thus, his numerical name would be 666 (666 is the sign of the devil). One of the posters the young unsub has in his hospital room is a print of Francisco Goya's painting "Saturn Devouring One of His Children." See more »


The scene in the asylum takes place in 1988, but the patient has a Library of America edition of HP Lovecraft stories that was published in 2005. See more »

Dr. Lorenz: Please. Listen. I'm telling you, he's not like our other patients. The crimes we got here are nothing compared to do with letting him out.

Garcia got away with murder
13 August 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As I recall, from the one episode I saw in re-runs, Garcia was recruited by the BAU after she was caught hacking into their computer system. If I remember correctly, she was offered the job as an alternative to going to jail. Yet as the facilitator of a support group, she flagged the names of victims so the cases wouldn't be forgotten. Later, she met a man in a coffee shop who turns out to be the unsub on some open cases. He invited her for a date, and when he escorted her back to her apartment, he attempted to kill her. She accepted the date in the first place because she was angry with Morgan, who just tried to warn her to be careful about a man she knew nothing about. After she returned home from the hospital, she was given police protection. Then one of the officers protecting her was murdered. Did she even express remorse that she caused all this drama. Where were the consequences for Garcia, not that I expected her to be arrested, but it seemed to me, that she took it upon herself to flag cases, something she had no business doing, and what, everyone held her hand? Why doesn't she ever have to suffer the consequences for her wrongheaded, and possibly illegal actions. That is a real puzzle for me. She is the computer expert, so she knows the power of the internet, she was hired because she hacked into the BAU system, yet it seems nothing ever happens to her, she needs a wake-up call. Instead she puts on her I just want to see a world of sweetness and light and kittens and... gag me. I'm tired of her irresponsible behavior for which she never has to face the consequences. Have you guessed that I am not fond of this character, perhaps not Garcia herself, but the things that she takes it upon herself to do.
