Storyline

The Highway Serial Killer Database exists so that information can be collated for serial murders that would not otherwise be connected due to different police jurisdictions. In reviewing the database, the BAU determine that a serial killer has killed five women thus far, the bodies found hundreds of miles apart. However Reid determines that there is a geographical focus on Edgewood, New Mexico. Each woman was strangled, the bodies laid in a fetal position found in a public location such as a ditch, and there is no sexual assault. The BAU determine that the unsub is a trucker. The case takes a turn when a woman named Nancy Campbell is abducted in front of her teen-aged daughter, Courtenay, at a highway rest stop in Edgewood. Nancy does not fit the victimology, but her abduction clarifies to the BAU what the unsub is looking for in the abducted women and ultimately the reason for the abductions and eventual murders.

Taken By Surprise
3 August 2013 | by groveargentumSee all my reviews

While channel surfing, I stopped at what looked like an interesting scene. I couldn't stop watching. The story, the writing, the acting, the way it was shot kept me engaged until the very last emotion filled scene.

I was really taken by surprise by the ending and the actors in the show mirrored what I felt.

Came here to see what others thought and to see if I was the only viewer affected this way. I'm not usually interested in crime stories, but this one was unusual and moving. Praise to the writers and everyone involved with this episode.
