Storyline

The FBI profiling team is called to Florida where a seres of efficient bombs killed every single target; this rules out a terrorist or politically motivated bomber. The bombs themselves carry the signature of Adrian Bale, a master-bomber who was jailed after taking out six FBI agents in Boston, who even pushed the next button when he knew it would only worsen his sentence. Then there's a lead to an alternative scenario: master forger David Walker, who had to commit a single murder to keep out of jail but covers it up by playing the Bale copycat. Or is there a link between these two suspects, perhaps via a Internet forum which contains suspicious messages? Written by KGF Vissers

Great Ending Caps Good PB Bomber Episode
3 January 2007 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

There is a bomber in Palm Beach, Fla. We learn that "half of these bombers wind up blown up by their own bombs." With that in mind, one of the victims - a guy who lost a foot in one of the explosions - turns out to be a suspect.

From there, the BAU (Behavioral Analysis Unit) of the FBI - the people who make up this program - discover that whoever this bomber is, he's a copycat of a guy who is prison in Boston. That guy blew up six FBI people when "Gideon," the leader of this program, was involved. That case obviously haunts him (and has been mentioned in all three episodes) but they need this guy "Adrian Bale" (Tim Kelleher) to help find the guy in Palm Beach.

Things get really hairy at the end when a guy wearing a "necklace bomb" enters the police room and our guys have three hours to diffuse it. It's a good episode with a great ending, one of the better ones I've seen on these crime shows.
