Storyline

On a lunch hour in crowded Archer Plaza in Dallas, Texas, a sniper, firing twelve shots, manages to kill six people. The BAU has to figure out if it is a random attack, a targeted attack, a terrorist attack - homegrown or foreign - or even something related to the upcoming fiftieth anniversary of the shooting death of John F. Kennedy. The six unrelated victims were killed in different parts of the plaza, the remaining six bullets splattered elsewhere throughout the plaza, leading to the team initially believing that it was a random attack by someone who was a bad shooter. But the nature of the six killed leads them ultimately to believe that the sniper was indeed an excellent shot, with the six non-fatal bullets being red herrings. They have to look at the backgrounds of the six dead to see who was the intended target or targets.

Trivia

In Season 1, there was an Sniper Case, only they called him L.D.S.K. and say that's what they call every sniper. In this episode there is no mention of L.D.S.K when everybody calls the UnSub a sniper. **This is actually mentioned during the episode as they go further to define it as "long distance serial killer".

Goofs

Hotchner initially mistakenly refers to the shooter both as a "sharpshooter" and as a "marksman" - neither is a common word for shooters but both are military terms referring to the same specific profession: a medium range shooter that is attached to an infantry unit and is not required to work alone or use stealth. Other characters correctly refer to the unsub as a sniper: a long range shooter that works alone and is proficient in evading tracking and discovery. See more »

Quotes

Dr. Spencer Reid: You know, the fact is, this is an experienced sniper who can account for timing. After the first shot, no one moves. People are puzzled. Everyone's reaction is to look for a source of the sound. After the second shot, it takes the average person one and a half seconds to cognitively process that they're in a potentially life-threatening situation. It takes another .7 seconds for a physical response to kick in. By which time the third shot has already been fired.
