The BAU is called to Atlanta, Georgia to investigate the deaths of two prostitutes. Each victim was stabbed multiple times - indicating anger and strength - with the dead bodies placed carefully in different parks in the outskirts of town. The differences in the kill and the body placement indicate that there are possibly two unsubs, one dominant and one submissive who exist in a co-dependent relationship. In addition, $250 was found on each victim, meaning that theft was not a motive, and the victims were not sexually violated, meaning that sex was either not a motivation or that the angry killer is impotent. Similar bruising on the victims' thighs and a subsequent victim who is somewhat outside the victimology of the initial two dead lead the team to understand with who they are dealing as the unsubs. Meanwhile, Hotch is hoping that his participation the upcoming FBI Triathlon will mark a milestone not associated with the race itself. And Prentiss, Garcia and JJ plan on a girls' ...

Prostitution is murder
12 May 2013 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

I watched this episode tonight. Sadly not on TV, but on the Internet, for the time it is broadcast is rather late. This season seems to be a pretty intense action with interesting topics. Topics in this episode seemed something new in a show like this. Annoying is that the action is happening fast enough, especially as the actors speak. The guy who was paralyzed appeared convincingly even in their role. Those who have played the role of parents, too. I can say that of all the ideas out, it came out very well, that scenario. Too bad I do not have seen this idea in a certain film. Anyway, the episode came out very well. I thank those who still have ideas to make good episodes, besides the fact that increases the audience. Bravo writers, in particular, and everyone in the squad.
