Storyline

The BAU is called to the San Francisco Bay area when a young couple named David Atley and Nicole Puli are found shot to death, with evidence pointing to the unsub being the Zodiac Killer, who has not been heard from since 1974. The local police detective leading the investigation believes it to be the work of the real Zodiac Killer, but Hotch, Rossi and Reid believe that it is not, especially since there has been no evolution in the nature of these latest killings since those by the real Zodiac Killer. The team nonetheless follow leads back to the original investigation, including tracking those who were involved in that investigation as well as anyone who either wrote about it or tracked the investigation. They are hindered in the investigation by an anxious and sometime media hungry public who want to cash in on the Zodiac Killer's notoriety.

Gripping Episode
22 January 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have been a fan of Criminal Minds for a long time. I am a loyal viewer and want to say that this episode was particularly gripping. Since Caleb has such a mind for crime and he wasn't killed off is is possible that the character may come back to actually help solve crimes? I found the twists from the beginning well played out. The character of Caleb from the very beginning was complicated. I found him sinister and very off balance and then at the end actually felt sorry for him. Perhaps if he comes back Criminal Minds can explore this person more and viewers can better understand what led to his actions. Could he actually possibly be "reformed"?
