Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Donovan Treadlow
Arthur Coffey / Ralph Mercer
Dr. Montague


Hernando family lemony factory worker Fernanda Talan's week-old corpse, skull violently smashed twice, is found on a cars graveyard. Patrick smells a rat and uses the guard dog to find a nearby second corpse, Valerie Brestin, similarly clobbered, financial director at Donald Beechum's firm Agile Turtle and volunteer at Donovan Treadlow's homeless shelter out of guilt after fatally hitting a vagrant by car. Patrick doubts profiler Montague's theory that this MO points to the ten years inactive serial killer Caveman, which a macabre package makes likely again, but Patrick proves the victims have a link, a bus line where they could be picked, with a criminal driver. Written by KGF Vissers

The posters for the event honoring the first victim, at 18:25, say "Una Noche por Fernanda". This would translate as something like "one night in exchange for Fernanda". To mean "a night given for Fernanda" it should read "Una Noche para Fernanda". See more »
