Storyline

The BAU are brought to Los Angeles to investigate a string of seven brutal slayings over a two week period. The killings are what Reid describe as "overkill", suggesting that the single killer has suffered a psychotic break which prompted the killings. The overkill that Reid describes is the fact that the victims all had severed body parts, the severing done by a large sharp bladed weapon. When there are more killings, the BAU get a clearer victimology. Although the BAU are closing in at least geographically on the unsub, they get a major break when they are made privy to some drawings resembling the murders and murder sites. Meanwhile, Garcia returns to work after the recovery from her gunshot wound. She is frustrated to find that her office is not the way she left it. Written by Huggo

Quotes

[first lines]
Jonny McHale: No one sees *True Night*, what's really there in the dark. It's not that they can't see, they simply don't. They feel an elemental force that scares them into deepest reaches of their minds. But they refuse to see the actual source. Something watching them just out of their reach. Something cold and frightening. Something inhuman.

"Sin City" graphics, sympathetic villain. Wonderful!
19 November 2010 | by (Santa Cruzin', CA) – See all my reviews

I recorded this episode when it was shown again, because I had to "own" it. It is that good. The graphic-novel sequences - ala Frank Miller - are just amazing. They do not, however, over-shadow the story-line, which is also very unusual in that our villain is not a monster, in the way that most "CM" villains are. Not wanting to introduce spoilers to detract from a viewer's enjoyment of this episode, I will just say: Try to find this episode. It is not to be missed. I hope that there will be more episodes as unusual as this one. It is great to have a break from the usual - although "the usual" is always quite good. I enjoy getting into the psychology of the killers, rather than just the technical breakdown of the evidence they leave behind. An outstanding episode from an excellent show. I love both Mandy Patankin and Joe Montegna. All the characters are excellent.
