Storyline

Two families consisting of a mother, father and two children are murdered in two consecutive days in the Iowa/Nebraska border area. The children are strangled, the mothers killed by blunt force trauma and the fathers stabbed multiple times. The father in the second set of murders was also eviscerated crudely postmortem, meaning that it was done not as torture but rather out of curiosity. The autopsies show that the mothers suffered the most pain in their deaths, making the BAU believe that the mothers are the key to the unsub's rage. In reviewing the crime scenes, the BAU come to the realization that the unsub was known to the victims and that he is a minor. As the BAU determine more about the unsub, including that he is a ward with a criminal record, the unsub is dealing with his next target, the Riverton family, its mother, Nancy Riverton who does her best to temper the inner rage of the unsub.

Sterling Beaumon makes this episode.
22 November 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Sterling Beaumon, who played the killer, Jeremy Sayer, was amazing in this episode. He is only fifteen, and yet, I personally believe he was one of the best killers who has guest starred on this show - and there has been a lot of amazing actors on Criminal Minds. Sterling's character's emotions were portrayed vividly and amazingly. He actually made me feel bad for Jeremy, the serial killer. Those are the makings of a great actor.

I have to say, this is probably now my favourite episode of Criminal Minds, and that is saying a lot considering what a huge fan of this show I am.

Rating TEN for an amazing guest starring performance.
