Storyline

Within 18 hours of their common time together, 12 people who visited Quiet Hills Park in Annapolis, Maryland, have died from anthrax poisoning, with at least 13 more in emergency rooms headed in the same direction. It is a highly sophisticated strain of anthrax, meaning that it was developed by someone with a science background. The military is called in as the BAU believes that such scientific work is the specialty of the military, the resulting pathogen was used as a potential WMD. Although the strain of the pathogen is not being used by the military, military scientists are the most likely candidates able to develop such a strain. The attack site, a family-oriented public park, is contrary to such work, and thus the BAU believes the site is personal to the perpetrator. Because of the panic it could cause, there is a media blackout on the story, which negatively affects some on the team, some for personal and some for professional reasons.

Trivia

When General Whitworth first arrives at the BAU, he and Hotch discuss the handling of Dr. Hatfill in 2001. Dr. Steven Hatfill was a virologist and biological weapons expert at Fort Detrick. In 2002, Hatfill became the prime suspect in the 2001 anthrax attacks. His personal and professional life were severely damaged by the investigation. Hatfill sued the government. In 2008, the government settled the lawsuit by paying Dr. Hatfill $4.6 million (after attorney fees). The Justice Department also officially exonerated him, stating that after their intensive investigation, it was clear Dr. Hatfill was in no way involved in the attacks. See more »

Goofs

Hotch and Morgan were driving to the Frederick Metro train station to apprehend the unsub but before they got to the station the scene cut to an image of the New York City 59th street (N,R,W,4,5,6) subway station to help establish the location not a DC Metro station. See more »

Military and FBI worked Good Together!
19 May 2013 | by (Seymour Tennessee) – See all my reviews

As a deadly virus is unleashed the FBI and the military must work together. And stop the virus before other people get hurt or killed from it.

We see people in the park getting sick over the virus. As they were just minding their own business.

It hits home to Jennifer Jareau as she is a recent mother. And how she wants a seven month old baby to survive this.

At first there is tension with the military after a US General accuses the FBI of accusing one of the military of something like this. Hotch apologizes but says that the profile is accurate.

Still the two work together well in order to stop the threat. And that they throw in a twist in the end. To stop the person that is doing this.
