Storyline

The BAU travel to Akron, Ohio, where two sets of married couples have been murdered in the span of a week. The husbands, who had Viagra in their system but who were not prescribed the drug, were shot while the wives were stabbed. The couples were forced to have sex with the husband wearing a condom, before they were killed. In reviewing the crime scenes, Morgan and Prentiss determine that the unsub is not a sexual sadist as he was trying to set a romantic mood for the kills, and is compensating for a probable recent bout of impotence. In interviewing the victims' families, the team also determine that the husband is the key to the unsub's targets as stereotypical alpha male types. When the unsub hits a broader target, the team are only then able to figure out how the unsub is able to gain access to the victims without a struggle, and from where he has devolved.

Goofs

When Morgan turns on the car (the second crime scene), Prentiss notices that "[the unsub] turned the heat all the way up." Presumably, the car had not been used since the couple was killed in it (which was the previous night), so the engine coolant would have cooled down and the heater would not have worked. Prentiss would have noticed a blast of air at whatever temperature it was inside the car, yet she reacts as if the vent was blowing hot air. See more »

compromising positions
7 February 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I thought this was a really good episode, must have been a rerun but I saw it the first time tonight, anything with Shemar in it is a 10 in my book.It just seemed strange to see the police dept depicted as such a small country type police department. I live in Akron Ohio and their police dept is about a 10 story building. I guess I noticed because I live here. Other than that this is one of my favorite TV shows and has a great cast I think that you need to bring JJ back the show and team did not seem complete without her if you don't want junk words you should not make it mandatory to compose a 10 line summary, you have to babel on just to meet your requirements
