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

Derek Morgan: [learning Garcia acts in her spare time] When did you plan on telling me?
Penelope Garcia: Oh, I wasn't gonna tell you. We all have things for ourselves. You know, you have property, I have the theater.
Derek Morgan: Well, can you at least tell me what it's about?
Penelope Garcia: Mm-hmm. It's about a woman who's attacked by a serial killer, but she catches him, and she knocks him out, and she keeps him for days.
Derek Morgan: Garcia, of all the plays in the world, you choose something like that?
Penelope Garcia: I get to vent.

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.
