The BAU is disturbed by their finding that the Replicator has had such intimate access to all the team members. However, Strauss gives a directive for them to put that case aside since there are no new leads which may give them some perspective over time of who the Replicator is, and focus their attentions on their regular cases. That next case takes them to Saint Paul, Minnesota, where women have been stabbed to death, but more disturbing have had their tongues pulled out pre-mortem. They know that the tongue removal is the key to understanding the motivation of the unsub. The disparate set of women victims is seemingly chosen at random until the team discovers one common bond: that they all have a very strong on-line presence, their deaths telegraphed by stories in their own on-line blogs, messages or texts.

Bad research
14 June 2014 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

In this episode they come to St. Paul, MN to work a case.

In one scene near the end they are looking for the character Peter.

They said he is in Rosewood just outside of St. Paul.

Roseville is just outside of St. Paul, you just cross the street and there you are.

Rosewood is 332 miles north of St. Paul.

Watching this I wonder if they filmed any part anywhere near Minnesota.

You see this in almost every show, most being filmed in Canada. As if no one will notice the mistakes. At least Mary Tyler Moore filmed several locations in the twin cities to cut in to the show filmed on a Hollywood set.
