Oak Tree Hills is a security monitored gated community located in Las Cruces, New Mexico. In the span of two months, three women have been strangled to death in their home in Oak Tree Hills, each successive murder being more brazen in that other household members were within closer proximity when the murder occurred. With the latest murder, security showed no non-residents on site, meaning that a resident is the unsub. Because the community is homogeneous, an unsub profile is somewhat meaningless. As such, Hotch and Rossi enlist the assistance of an FBI cadet, Agent Ashley Seaver, who may be able to shed some light from another perspective as she is the daughter of a serial killer who murdered twenty-five women before she reached age twenty. Hotch and Rossi make it clear to her that she is only acting as a consultant and is in no way to take action without the approval of someone on the team. Det.

Back to being great
10 July 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This really is a great episode. It is one of those where everything comes together well, even if it doesn't keep you guessing until the end. After some weaker episodes in the season, this one reminds you why you can't stop watching this show.

That being said, I would give this one a 9, but I had to knock a point off for the absolutely terrible, awful, moment ruining song that comes in after the climactic moment. This has happened before in another episode. It's just inappropriate to have not only a song that is just plain awful, but to play it for SO long! I felt like I had bumped the remote and landed on music video. I suggest that when it starts, and you will know when it starts, hit mute until they show the "heading home on the plane" scene that ends most episodes. Your ears will think you.
