The BAU is called to Seattle, Washington, where two couples have been murdered execution style in their respective homes. There is no sign of forced entry in either case, there was no sexual assault, and the gunshot wounds were muffled by the use of a pillow. By the time the team reaches Seattle, a third couple has been murdered with the same MO. Each couple were upstanding citizens and community minded. The team learns that a common link between all three is that each belonged to the emergency foster parent list. The team surmises that the female unsub has access to that foster parent list, and has either lost a child herself or is infertile and wants a child. They also surmise that she is killing in lieu of a child not being in the home at the time of entry into the home. But when the team learns that the same child was recently in each home, they know that the unsub is the birth mother. When they find out her identity, they learn that her mission is not one solely of getting back ... Written by Huggo

When Hallman's third victims pull up to their house in a Cadillac, the brake lights (and taillights) turn off when the car is turned off. Actually, a GM vehicle will turn its reverse lights on when the car is turned off (as well as its headlights and taillights), then turn everything off when the doors are locked. This Cadillac is not shown doing that. See more »

Maggie Hallman: [voiceover] Everyone says that love happens when you least expect it. I guess it's true, because when I met you, love was the last thing on my mind. I'd find myself sneaking out to see you. I'd put fancy makeup on just to make you smile. I still feel the touch of your skin. You help me get through every night. You give my life purpose. That's why no matter what people try to do... Nothing is going to keep us apart.
