Storyline

The BAU's latest case takes the team to San Francisco, California. For each of the last three years at the same time of the year, three homeless men have been found murdered in three consecutive days, after which the murders stop. Each is killed execution style but show signs of blunt force trauma prior to death. The first of the murdered homeless men this year has been found, meaning that the BAU expect two more over the next two days unless they can find the unsub. Although he has direct orders not to get involved by Strauss, Special Supervisory Agent Sam Cooper, a former BAU member who now heads his own hand picked team, asks Hotch for a favor: he wants his team in on the case as he has a theory. He has noticed that immediately after the three murders, a father and his teen-aged daughter have also been found murdered, which he feels is connected. He suspects there is currently a missing father and daughter which no one is looking for in connection to being ultimately murdered. ... Written by Huggo

Loved this Episode
12 April 2010 | by (Saudi Arabia) – See all my reviews

Forest Whitaker added a new flavor to CM and do that am following all the episodes of CM from S03 and i love it, but this one by far the best on of them all and will stay in my memory for some time.

Started with a new case that's in two parts and Forest Whitaker ( Special Agent Sam Cooper ) meeting Thomas Gibson ( Aaron 'Hotch' Hotchner ) in a gym where they talk about the case in hand and moving to Whitaker giving Hotchner his theory about another case and that they are connected and going behind the back of Director Erin Strauss to see how far the two cases are connected moving to finishing the two cases.

There was some chemistry between some of the two teams members but i like to leave this to who will watch it.

I have a strong feeling that there will be a new CM starring Forest Whitaker and his team , it will be like NCIS LA. who knows ! lets wait and see.
