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

Emily Prentiss: So, how does a Brit...
Mick Rawson: A handsome Brit.
Emily Prentiss: How does a Brit end up in the FBI?
Mick Rawson: It's pretty simple. Cooper and I bumped into each other a few times. Ten months ago, they told him he could handpick a new team. He called, I came. Passport didn't matter.
Emily Prentiss: Huh. So, is it true that no one in the British Special Forces is allowed to admit they're in it?
Mick Rawson: I don't know. I'd have to ask around about that one.
Emily Prentiss: [amused laugh] You know, there's a lot of rumors about your boss.

Poor Casting choices
8 April 2010 | by (Baltimore, Maryland) – See all my reviews

I am a huge fan of "Criminal Minds". The "spin-off" episode was the worst I have seen. Whitaker was flat and I don't think he works well in the character, He may be acclaimed, But a poor choice here. His "team" was far less than intriguing or even cohesive. It is not even remotely possible or believable that a team of convicts and mercenaries would be allowed on a high profile and elite FBI team/section. I know....Television!!! The entire concept seemed contrived. Agents popped in and out for no reason. Introduction of characters short of proper without certain reason and attempt to match old and new into something that is far from acceptable for the normal series format.The camera work was even lousy, close-up shots on the plane and in the vehicles looked like something from a high school media project. Choppy shots of the action/chase scenes. and what looked like edited footage just spliced in. Simply Pitiful Bar-none it was by far the worst single episode produced. CBS don't screw up the best series you have, It worked with CSI but not here.
