Hotch receives a telephone call from his estranged New York based brother Sean, who he has not heard from in four years and coincidentally while Hotch and Jack are in New York visiting Beth. Now working as a bartender in a club, Sean wants Hotch's help in a death that occurred in the club, where the woman in question quickly bled out through her eyes, mouth and nose just before her death. Hotch convinces the team that this death is the basis for a case when Sean tells him that his own girlfriend also recently died the same way. The team quickly learns that these two deaths are not the only ones, most to hit drug users in clubs. But what confounds the team is that a few victims, such as Sean's girlfriend, were non-drug users. The drug found in each of the victim's systems was Ecstasy. They later learn that the form of the drug that killed the victims was a more lethal variety that has not yet been known to have hit the US.

Suspenseful One of Two Parts For Season 8 Finale!
28 May 2014 | by (Seymour Tennessee) – See all my reviews

This is one of two parts for the BAU as they have to deal with both personal and professional troubles. As a bunch of deaths linked to the drug ecstasy over in NY.

When Hotch who has not been happy for a long time since the Reaper claimed his ex-wife, Haley and left him a single father to Jack. Now with his new girlfriend Beth. As he gets a call from his estranged brother, Sean.

After Sean sees a woman collapse and dies. But there was not just one victim but two. As one of them happened to be someone Sean knows.

Hotch is horrified to learn a lot about Sean, since they have not talked for a long time And it is not good things about him. Sean seems to be the wayward younger brother to Hotch's successful and straight lace older brother.

Hotch must deal with Sean while the rest of the team solve the ecstasy murders and the Unsub behind it all. As the job Sean has, has something to do with the drugs.

Meanwhile, the Replicator is haunting the BAU like he has been in the beginning of the first season. As it is a well know guest star, won't tell you who it is. And the ending really is very chilling.
