Storyline

Kyle Murphy is third in the string of boys abducted from their homes in Camden County, the first two ultimately found dead in the woods. For Captain Bill Lancaster, the chief police investigator working on the string of abductions, Kyle's disappearance adds poignancy to the case as he is friends with the Murphys, Kyle who called him "Uncle". As the FBI begin to investigate, they notice that there are slight differences between Kyle's abduction and the other two. When the FBI finds the person who they believe is the unsub, they are still uncertain if he had anything to do with Kyle's disappearance. Written by Huggo

This one will stay with you for a while.
13 February 2012 | by (Tel Aviv, Israel) – See all my reviews

I've been watching a lot of crime-drama movies and TV shows, so I don't get shocked by it very often. Most of the time I think to myself something like "Hmm... K, nice episode" and I move on. But every once in a while comes an episode like this one, which leaves me thinking, unable to shake it for a while, like I do most episodes.

And the thing is, I feel that way *despite* successfully predicting who the UnSub was right from the start. There was no surprise for me there, but I still find myself shocked. I suppose it goes a long way to show how well produced this episode really was from every possible aspect - writing, directing, acting, editing, and last but not least - the music, which tend to be underrated, but in my opinion, is very important.

I love Criminal Minds, and this episode made me love it even more. Well done, guys, and thanks for a memorable episode!
