Jason Gideon's FBI profile team is called to an Arizona College campus where students and teachers fall victim to arson. However the pyromaniac profile doesn't quite apply: the culprit didn't make sure (s)he could enjoy the crimes by observing the victims perishing. Dr. Spencer Reid finds a better way to fit the facts with a rarer serial killer logic: a 'religious' compulsion, in this case both triggered and given form by a boundless obsession with the number three- if this theory holds true a third, possibly triple, arson is at hand...
Did You Know?
During the evacuation / rescue at the burning building midway through, emergency crews and students are seen hurriedly fleeing the harrowing disaster. Yet, as people are shown descending an outside stairwell, one student is clearly grinning from ear to ear while he runs for his life, an unfitting expression for the circumstances. Not a speck of soot or sweat or singe anywhere on him, either. See more
[the team arrives at the college
No badges. I don't want to satisfy the unsub's need for attention by letting him know we got the FBI here. Try not to look official.
[looks at the team's clothing
Try to look *less* official.
