Storyline

Hotchner and Reid secure a pre-execution interview for research with death-row inmate, Chester Hardwick, who had a secret agenda. Unofficially, and unbeknown to his team, Rossi checks up on the surviving children of an Indianapolis couple who were victims of a still-unsolved, brutal, double-homicide exactly twenty years earlier, that he has never let go of, and to see if their are any new leads. Frustrated with his constant yearly gifts, a painful reminder of their parents' murder, the now-grown children beg Rossi to just leave them alone, but inadvertently provide him with a new lead. Concerned about his state of mind, Morgan, Prentiss, and J.J. join him, just in time to help make sense of the only new lead in twenty years, that may finally lead to the killer.

Quotes

David Rossi: I was here on a serial rapist in '88. It was pretty short work. The guy wasn't gonna win any IQ contests. The day after we, uh, collared him, a local detective was driving me to the airport, and, um, he hears a call on his walkie of kids screaming in a house not far from where we were. He asks if I mind taking the job in with him. We were first on the scene. Inside we found...

A poignant episode
2 December 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I thought this was well-written -- everyone played to their usual strengths. Having 2 separate story-lines was interesting; yes using the real life story of the guy who invented the term "serial-killer" worked for me.

Whenever its on --- i make a point to watch it. And its a sad episode that presumably does play out in real life. One serious bad guy -- and another dumb child-like individual.

This was one of the first Rossi episodes -- so it adds depth to him - and his team. I presume this hits a lot of real life police hard -- the cold-cases.
