Storyline

Middle aged Caucasian blonde women are being gunned down on the freeways around Los Angeles. Based on victimology, the BAU determine that the women are surrogates for someone in the unsub's life, probably his wife or former partner. The unsub is feeling emasculated, this feeling onset by some specific traumatic event, but precipitated by perceived attitudes toward him. However, the killings are getting progressively brazen, where the BAU believes the unsub will eventually kill the real blonde woman in his life, and the children associated with that relationship. When the team locate the unsub, it may be too late. Written by Huggo

... why make the criminal a bad guy.

Apologies for the spoiler, don't read ahead if you still want to see the episode!

I like the opening because the criminal character seems to shoot the woman in the car because she flamed him. Just later it turns out he did it because she reminded him of his dominant wife. To make it even worse, he goes on a killing spree for blonde women in cars. I would have liked it more if he would have targeted victims who were being rude to him first. That would have given the killer the aspect of being a good/righteous person after all (somehow reminding of the movie "Falling Down"). But the story is to make him a sad and bitter person turning into a bad person. That puts a death mark on him in the eyes of the audience. It would have been more interesting if he would have stayed a good person in some way.

Also the narrated phrase after the introduction, "Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin to slit throats." is great, but I would have preferred if the "normal man" would have stayed within his own laws, and not kill victims by luring them.
