Storyline

Michelle Watson, a Buffalo, New York based real estate agent, is found murdered inside a house at which she was showing. A week later, the Buffalo Police Department receive an audio-less and edited video recording from the murderer's viewpoint of the lead-up to the killing, including shots within the murderer's home, as well as the actual murder itself. From the video, it looks as if it was taken by a hidden camera located somewhere on the upper half of the murderer's body. From the actions on the video, the BAU can also tell that the murderer suffers from obsessive-compulsive disorder. Reviewing past cases in the Buffalo area within the past ten years and another video visible in the background of the video sent makes them suspect that this murder was done by a serial killer. Two other key pieces of information on the video are the number "29", circled by the murderer on Michelle's day planner, and the murderer scrawling the words "HELP ME".

Goofs

At the beginning of the episode, a very tall palm tree can be seen reflected in the window of the vehicle driven by Vincent (Alex O'Laughlin). This episode is set in Buffalo, New York, however, where the freezing winters would make it impossible to grow a palm tree, let alone one of that height. See more »

best criminal minds ever
4 May 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was so different and great.Alex is the best and that little Jake played his part just right.For the ones that don't know Alex try and find his shows. You will not be disappointed. He has the ability to change with the part he's playing. That's a sign of a good actor.I have watched criminal minds before but it never kept my interest too much. This was a special story and I'm sure was written just for Alex. It was sensitive and quiet and you saw more from the side of the serial killer. It surprised you from beginning to end. This has to be the classic show for Criminal Minds. The Derek Morgan part was unusual also. This just has to be 'a have to see show'.It had it all. We can only hope Alex will be on more programs so we can have more quality shows.
