Storyline

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.

Best Episode of the Season so far
8 December 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The last few episodes I started getting a little bored with this show even though it's been one of my favorites for the last few years. However tonight my patience was rewarded, this episode was outstanding. I felt like they were going back to earlier seasons when they didn't reveal who the killer was in the first 10 minutes. Also they had a good little side story tonight and if you haven't seen the episode yet I won't ruin it for.

As far as the plot goes you'll have to see it for yourself, but I would highly recommend this episode and if you were like me and gave up on this season just watch this and you may be rethinking that.
