Corporate executives are being murdered in Dallas, Texas. The authorities are reluctant to publicize the spate of murders due to the sensitive nature of the deaths: they know that those murdered were regularly using the services of high priced call girls, one of those call girls probably being the sole murderer. Corporate lawyers are also reluctant to provide any information on either those deceased, or of any others they know in a similar situation within any of the businesses they represent. The BAU have to find a way to get the businesses and their lawyers to cooperate as well as get into the psyche of both high priced call girls and their wealthy executive johns. The BAU starts off at a disadvantage as the killer already know who Hotch is and that he is on the case. Written by Huggo

Did You Know?


When Megan Page googles Hotch, she watches his press release from Criminal Minds: Brothers in Arms (2008). See more »


When Megan kills Trent in the garage, she tells the TV news reporter that the garage is at Corinth and Michigan. Those two streets do not cross in Dallas. After that Garcia triangulates Megan's position as 1818 Corinth with a zip code of 75273. An 1800 block of Corinth exists, but It doesn't have an 1818 address. A food processing plant exists where that would be, not a parking garage. Even if the address did exist, the zip code would be 75215, not 75273. Furthermore, Garcia's map shows the address to be in the Trinity River green belt, but the 1800 block of Corinth is at least 10 blocks from there. The garage is also nowhere near a skyline that's shown when the BAU arrives. See more »


Aaron Hotchner: Could you send details about the case or the unsub?
A.G. Patrick Jackson: It's not the unsub you need to worry about. It's the lawyers!

A veritable feast of acting & writing
6 January 2012 | by Knole1456ntSee all my reviews

I was profoundly moved by this episode, & am more moved every time I watch it. So many human emotions are explored, and in so many different ways. I did not expect to feel everything I felt; and each time I see this episode, I learn a little more. I don't for one moment understand everything in it but I do know about disappointment, disillusion, and pity. The casting is perfect and, as usual, the Criminal Intent regulars do their jobs with the same consistency as ever. All the guest cast are also very believable in their roles. This ranks way up there for me such as: "Penelope," "L.D.S.K.," "Normal," "Riding the Lightning," both parts of "The Fisher King;" & too many more to list. Thank you, Criminal Minds.
