Did You Know?

Anachronisms: In one scene, Dr. Reid localizes the unsub through dramatization, using a Phoenix map. The map does not show the west valley segment of the I-10 nor any SR-51 or loop 101 highways. The Southern Pacific Railroad is outlined on the map where the Union Pacific currently is located. This dates the map to approximately 1974.See more »
David Rossi:What's this?
Dr. Spencer Reid:It's the pattern I've been looking for. The unsubs hid their tracks with the mothers, but they weren't so careful with the abandoned babies.
David Rossi:Did you find more children?
Dr. Spencer Reid:DNA-wise, no, but deductively, yes. I gathered all the records for all infants who entered into foster care in a two week window following each mother's death. Then I narrowed it down to babies that were abandoned at churches. This is where the guesswork begins. Monica Winmar's daughter was abandoned at a Presbyterian church. Let's assume the unsub, or the wife at least, is Presbyterian. That means all other unwanted children are gonna be left at the same denomination, right? That narrows it down to three babies left at three different Presbyterian churches all within this twenty-mile radius. This is where they live.
David Rossi:These kids you deduced to... have you looked at their files?
Dr. Spencer Reid:No. Right now I've only been tracking churches. Why?
David Rossi:Because you just uncovered another pattern.
[cut to Hotch in New Mexico]
Aaron Hotchner:Yeah, we're packing up now. We can be in Phoenix in about two hours. Are you sure about this?
David Rossi:The names of the babies Reid found tells us everything. Lisa, Elizabeth, Amanda.
