Two men are savagely killed in the working class neighborhood of South Chicago, Illinois, Morgan's old stomping grounds, with a third victim by the time the team arrives in the area. There are no signs of sexual assault, although all victims had their pants and underwear pulled down to their ankles. There is the same written message at each crime scene, "Look Up to the Sky", which Morgan recognizes as the mantra of Carl Buford, Morgan's childhood mentor who molested young boys including him when he was a child. The team believes the unsub is one of Buford's former victims who is killing men acting as surrogates for Buford. Morgan may be the key through his personal knowledge to the team finding out who the unsub is, which may include confronting Buford himself, as well as the salvation for many of Buford's other victims, many of who, like Morgan, suppressed their victimization.

The team presents a profile of the killer as having an "extreme form of borderline personality disorder," which Reid defines as the "borderline between anxiety and psychosis." This description came into common usage in 1938, and continued through the 1960s and 1970s, but had fallen out of use by the time the DSM-III was published in 1980. See more
