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

Looking forward to the spin-off
18 June 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I gave an "optimistic" 8 out of 10 because I am looking forward to seeing what becomes of the spin-off. I personally think that the director has done a really great job on the 2 criminal minds episodes he has directed and hope that his style continues in the spin-off. I find that most c.m. episodes tend to be dark in lighting, etc. and find that S.1 Ep.1 and this episode are very distinct and "lighter" which make the episodes more intriguing for me. Regardless I will continue to be an avid C.M. fan but would love to see a spin-off. I think the characters have potential and it will be another adventure to follow a new group. -Optimistic
