In Houston's Fifth Ward, three murders don't fit the usual drug trade- and street gang-related violence pattern; apparently unrelated adult white men -construction worker, security guard and homeless- had their necks broken, abandoned in the streets near abandoned buildings. The team considers a homeless killer, possibly 'territorial' defending his hole at each time. Next victim, in a sewer, is city worker Travis Overby. Then a man survives, apparently because his young daughter was watching, she describes the white adult. After finding and SOS sign made of rubble, the team profiles a post-traumatic veteran reliving a war zone and finds a plausible suspect, Roy Woodridge, but his training makes him hard to catch... Meanwhile Reid is becoming insensitive...
