Based on his nightmares, Reid decides to stay in Las Vegas to probe deeper into his nightmare, specifically if his father, William Reid, who abandoned him and his mother when he was a child, was the murderer of six-year old Riley Jenkins when Reid himself was only four. Rossi and Morgan decide to stay and assist Reid. Reid learns that his father has been living just outside of Las Vegas all these years. Upon meeting his father, Reid confronts him with his suspicions. Reid Sr. denies any involvement or knowledge of the murder. Immediately after Reid confronts his father, an anonymous source provides another suspect for the murder. After going into hypnotherapy, Reid also thinks that his mother, Diana, is suppressing some memories from an incident surrounding the murder. Diana decides to go off her medication so that she can remember what happened the night that caused her mental instability. Meanwhile, J.J. goes into labor, three weeks before her due date.

Throughout this episode, it is constantly mentioned that the victim was found dead in the basement of the house. Since this episode takes place in Las Vegas, Nevada, it bears mentioning that homes in Las Vegas, even older homes do not have basements. See more »
I love this programme, although I am sure that there is some poetic justice to make it suitable for TV viewing it is still a wonderful programme to watch. I would like to take Dr Reid home, as a genius he would be an interesting person to talk with, with all the knowledge that he has accumulated in his quite short life. Do the real BAU staff like the way this programme portrays what they do? Do the producers and story/script writers of the programme make up the stories are do they have access to Freedom of Information as we do in England after a specific amount of time has passed, go look at the types of cases that the BAU would actually consult on.
