At the beginning of the episode, Reid hands Emily two false IDs. One is a Child Protective Services badge identifying her as a "Child Victim Interview Expert," with a badge number that appears to be 28257. The other is a Colorado driver's license that gives her address as 823 Marigold St., La Plata, CO 81301. The photo on the driver's license appears to be an older picture than the one on the CPS badge, as Emily has no bangs in the driver's license photo. See more

This is a special report from La Plata County, Colorado.
We're reminded of Jim McKay's words from Munich: "Our greatest hopes and our worst fears are seldom realized." Let's hope it's not the latter as we wait to hear the fate of the women, children, and FBI agents inside the building.
