Did You Know?

According to the writers, when Rossi shoots the duck the first time he appeared on screen it had special meaning. Jason Gideon, whom Rossi replaced, was an avid bird lover. "You do the math" stated Breen Frazier.See more »
Errors made by characters (possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): The team acts surprised when they find out one victim was able to purchase a shotgun and leave with it the same day. Since this is the normal legal procedure in the vast majority of U.S. states, this should have been no surprise to a federal agent.See more »
David Rossi:Now your face is going to be on one of those tapes. When I find it, I'm going to paper the city with it, just like you did with those women. Everyone will see it. They won't be able to ignore you now. But you won't inspire fear, you'll inspire hatred and ridicule because the only power someone like you has is a mask. Once that mask is removed you'll be as insignificant as you've always been. A loser!See more »

Intense and dramatic., 14 October 2014
Author: PWNYCNY from United States

What a powerful piece of drama. Trying to piece together a puzzle, a team of police officers work to apprehend someone who is targeting certain victims for reasons that are unknown. Besides being well-acted, the story is plausible enough to render it credible and therefore worth watching. In other words, the story is not contrived; what is described could happen. This in turn calls into question the nature of a society that can produce people capable of exhibiting such aberrant behavior. The point of the story is that in our society there is no such thing as absolute security and that complacency is a luxury that none of us can afford. People leading quiet uneventful lives, suddenly upended by someone whose psychopathology is out of control. The question is: what kind of mind would concoct such nefarious schemes? In this episode the perpetrator is using modern technology to taunt the police and terrify the victims. The story is intense, highly dramatic and worth watching.
