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

Quotes

Aaron 'Hotch' Hotchner: Cooper, listen. Your theory's right. We know he's killing homeless men as well as fathers and daughters. But let us work it. If you go back to D.C. now, the director won't know that you ignored her order.
Sam Cooper: Look, I know you're sticking your neck out on this thing for me. I... I understand. I don't... I'm not trying to...
Aaron 'Hotch' Hotchner: This isn't about me. I want to protect you.

Ouch.
11 November 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Criminal Minds is such a good show.

What happened?

I'm somehow hoping the original will just go on forever... And this one will just, wilt away.

The acting, the plot, the casting. It was all so.. euh.

Maybe this is just off because it's a dry run, but I don't plan on watching it in 2011. And if I do, it's mainly for that gorgeous British man. Kudos on that, you can't go wrong with an accent.

Did I mention the acting? It took me back to my eighth grade production of Oliver Twist.

Please sir, we don't want any more.
