The unsub wants press on the murder as he sent a photograph of Kelly to one of the Georgetown area newspapers. The BAU believe the unsub to be local and that the police have already interviewed him. Based on finding a homeless man living at the crime scene, they determine that the unsub is the man who reported Kelly's murder and who at the time was masquerading as a homeless man. Text found at the crime scene which matches text found on a piece of paper stuffed down Kelly's throat, the three day time frame and the way Kelly was made up when she was found suggest that the unsub is working in some 1950's movie or stage play three act scenario. Another young woman, Penny Hanley, is also determined to be missing and based on their ... Written by Huggo

Trivia

The scenes where Rhett Walden (Robert Knepper) interacts with the little girl in what is supposed to be Union Station in Washington, D.C., and where Hotchner, Prentiss, and Dr. Reid later find video footage of him, were actually shot in Union Station in downtown Los Angeles, recognizable among other things by its dark interior, high ceilings, and diamond patterns on the walls.

Quotes

Dr. Spencer Reid: This building has three exits, north, south and west. You're here to target a woman, but you don't want to attract attention.
Aaron Hotchner: Well, standing in the middle, gawking at passing women, would certainly attract attention. Like you're doing now.
Dr. Spencer Reid: What's that?
Emily Prentiss: Just like that. IQ of 187 is slashed to 60.

A Cross Between "Sunset Boulevard" and "Psycho"
17 March 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a farfecthed but entertaining episode of the popular series. Here, a missing young woman is found dead in the Georgetown section of D.C. and the unusual nature of her death puts the squad on the case. Here, the killer turns out to be a Norman Bates type with a mother fixation, the mother in this case being a glamorous but faded 1950's film noir siren, and he kidnaps young women to act out the mother's one leading film role. If they fail to make the cut, they get cut up. The squad must put the case together or the latest missing woman will be the next victim. Overall, this is a satisfactory episode, in spite of Garcia taking up too much of the screen time, and most fans should enjoy it. Suspension of disbelief will matter more here than in other episodes.
