Storyline

The New Orleans Police Department believe there is a serial killer on the loose in the French Quarter. He murdered three people pre-Katrina, in which he had been thought to have perished. A year and a half after the hurricane, a fourth dead body is found, killed using the same MO, which includes evisceration. Garcia locates a fifth potential victim in Galveston, Texas, that case which was not originally connected to the New Orleans killings. The unsub has been in direct contact with the lead investigator of the case, Lt. William LaMontagne, Jr. of the NOPD, by letter detailing the murder and mentioning that he is continuing what he started pre-Katrina. William LaMontagne, Sr., the previous lead investigator before he died in Katrina, also received such letters with the earlier murders. Most records of the first three murders were destroyed in the hurricane, so the BAU have only the latest murders from which to work.

Goofs

It is implied that Jack the Ripper cut off part of the ear of Catherine Eddows on purpose. This is because of a letter supposedly written by the killer to the Central News Agency threatening to cut off the ears of the next Ripper victim and send them to the news agency. The letter was then, and is now, thought to be a hoax written by a reporter at the paper to increase circulation. It is generally believed that the killer simply cut off part of the ear during Eddowe's murder by accident. See more »

Great Show
17 May 2010 | by memarucciSee all my reviews

I loved this episode. It had a bit of everything....Reid's issues with his ongoing drug problem, the start of a romance for JJ, Jack the Ripper like killer, facts about Katrina that were dealt with very well, and great music. I thought the way they dealt with the Katrina aftermath were well done....the loss of records, relocation of people, people who had to be buried unknown.....this all happened. Also, there have not been that many women serial killers portrayed, and I thought that the actress did a very credible job. JJ and Will tip toe around each other for a good part of the episode, then at the end she issues him a challenge to call her.
