Young male college students - the type the BAU classify as the alpha male - are on spring break vacation in South Padre Island. They are being raped by another man and suffocated to death specifically at the Hudson Street Hotel. The men are found naked in a fetal position in a place where they are sure to be found quickly the in their hotel room. They are also positioned in such a way that housecleaning would have cleaned up any evidence before finding the bodies first. The victims thus far are not gay indicating that any physical act was not consensual. When the next victim is found at another hotel, the BAU believe that this is a red herring, and that the unsub may be a guest or probably an employee at the Hudson Street Hotel. They also believe, based on sexual orientation of the victims, that there are two unsubs: a submissive female who lures the victims, and a dominant male who does the raping and killing. When the BAU have the two people they believe are the perpetrators of the ... Written by Huggo

Did You Know?


Reid mentions Tobias Hankel, who was in the episodes Criminal Minds: The Big Game (2007) and Criminal Minds: Revelations (2007). See more »


At the very beginning, we see that Amanda is supposedly being videotaped, as she is on camera. Yet there is no indication that the camera is recording (or that it even has a tape in it) when we see the screen, and when Reid appears, there are no cables coming out of it (so it's not connected to a computer). Therefore, they are not recording anything and the camera is redundant. See more »


Dr. Ticona Roberts: How are you feeling today?
Amanda: You let me smoke. What more can I ask for?
Dr. Ticona Roberts: Most patients have a hard time coping with new surroundings.
Amanda: They probably believe they'll be released. I'm not so naive.
Dr. Ticona Roberts: You don't believe you'll be getting out?
Amanda: Would you let me out?
Dr. Ticona Roberts: I'd like to talk about Adam. He's still missing.
Amanda: So I've heard.
Dr. Ticona Roberts: Will you help us find him?
Amanda: No.

Oh Em Gee
27 April 2010 | by maggie32191See all my reviews

I honestly don't know where to begin with this episode. Excellent acting, excellent writing, excellent everything! I loved how there was chemistry between Matthew and Jackson. You could tell immedately that Adam connected with Reid.

To be honest, I would love to see Matthew Gray Gubler and Jackson Rathborne work together again sometime; these two men are brilliant actors, and work very well together, which made this episode even more amazing. Criminal Minds is one of those shows that you can watch every week, and always find something new in something a character says or does. It's a show that makes you think, and this episode was no exception.
