The next number the machine dispenses is for Ian Murphy, a young man who lives off his investments. Years earlier he was a struggling college student who inherited $100,000 which he now has in a diverse portfolio of investments. Reese and Shaw initially follow him on a date. While Reese decides to check out his apartment, Shaw continues her tail. What they both find leads them to believe that Murphy is the perpetrator, stalking then killing the long list of women he meets through online means and of whom he has been keeping detailed dossiers. There is at least one woman dead already, Dana Wellington, and another, Jenna Lakritz, missing. Reese devises a plan to trap Murphy using the feminine wiles of their slightly expanded team of Carter, Shaw, and Zoe Morgan. The one of the three that Murphy eventually chooses finds a story a little more complicated than they originally thought. Meanwhile, Root knows that someone will soon be coming to kill her.

"I think I really am much better now" (dialog, Amy Acker)
27 December 2014 | by A_Different_DrummerSee all my reviews

Not merely an impressive episode but a clinic in how to keep a series fresh.

What I liked most about the first season was how true it was to the core formula. As in, why fix it if it ain't broke? But the producers, some of the smartest people in the biz, were looking further down the road; and by Season 2, they started slowly moving their chess pieces into place.

This wonderful episode not only provides the usual "victim or perpetrator" arc, but also brings together some of the strongest characters from the first two seasons in a secondary arc, and sets the series up for the future.

Everyone is great, including the dog. But once again Amy Acker is a scene stealer as a ex-sociopath trying to fit back into a world she left behind.

More fun than a barrel of hammers.
