They discuss how the unsub used succinylcholine to paralyze his victims before making it look like they killed themselves. This would be accurate, but it shows scenes where the unsub is talking to the people while paralyzed. Succinylcholine paralyzes ALL skeletal muscles, including the diaphragm that controls breathing. In other words, people who are paralyzed by it can't voluntarily breath. They would have suffocated within minutes of being injected. See more
Morgan and Prentiss refer to the outlet in the bathroom as "GFI," when in fact, the correct term is "GFCI" (for Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter). Someone who has installed them in his/her house (such as Morgan) would know this. Additionally, they say that any surge of current will shut the outlet off. GFCI outlets actually shut off if they detect more current flowing out of the hot (shorter) slot than flowing into the neutral (longer) slot. Circuit breakers shut off if current surges, not GFCI outlets. See more
How'd it go with Jack?
I just told him that I wasn't going to be around as much.
How'd he take it?
He gave me a hug, and he said that everything was gonna be all right.
Smart kid. Like his dad.
