Storyline

The BAU head to the small fishing town of Franklin, Alaska - population 1,500 - where there have been three murders in the span of a week. These three murders are the first ever in the town. On the surface, there is no similarity in either victimology or modus operandi, although each successive murder is becoming more confident in its approach. The case is made all the more difficult because everyone in town knows everyone's business, meaning that everyone is connected in some manner and if there is even the suspicion of someone being the killer, vigilante-ism could come into play. The key suspect is Joshua Beardsley, who was born and raised in Franklin, moved away to go the school and returned to town two weeks ago to help his recently widowed mother operate the town's only hotel/tavern. But when another person is murdered, the BAU not only believe they have a better profile and an understanding of why the victims were targeted, but that Joshua is the key to tracking the unsub.

Trivia

When the satellite phone cuts out, Penelope says "Frak", which is 1) a convenient way to swear without getting censored and 2) a nod to Battlestar Galactica. See more »

Goofs

The BAU is called in to assist the Sheriff's Dept. in Franklin, Alaska (a made-up town, although there is a ghost town by that name). By statute, Alaska has never had any Sheriffs. Functions filled by sheriffs elsewhere fall mostly under the auspices of the Alaska State Troopers. Other law enforcement is by community or (rarely) borough which is what Alaska has instead of counties. See more »

Love for Pen and Derek
8 November 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I rate the episode 7/10 because of two reasons.

First reason: Penelope and Derek. For me, it was so cute seeing the chemistry between the two. The ending was lovely for once and it ended the episode on a more romantic note, despite the fact that this IS a crime drama.

Second reason: The case itself. There are twists and turns in the plot and I kept assuming that the UnSub was Josh, the motel/hotel/some place's owner's son. The beginning of the episode was good. Very suspenseful indeed. I wish that the locals killed the UnSub, but he was a victim of abuse and all of that, so never mind.

Great episode. My third/fourth favorite for Season 5.
