On the anniversary of the execution of a serial killer, known as "the Angel Maker", who bludgeoned women while they were asleep, raped them and then made puncture wounds in their stomachs after they were killed, a copycat has started a new spree. Strangely enough, the semen found at the scene is a match to the original Angel Maker. While some people start to worry that he has returned from the dead, the BAU have to figure out what his mindset was in order to find the copycat. Written by

This is the first episode of Reid wearing a revolver as his service weapon instead of a FBI issued Glock. It shows how Reid is far different than the members of the BAU.

In Season 3's episode "Penelope", Morgan said "Who the hell uses a Revolver?" See more
