Jennifer Jareau: Ooh, what about this one? Sunny, two-bedroom. It's close to work. And it's in your price range.
Matt Simmons: Garcia, you're moving? You don't like change.
Penelope Garcia: That's true. Change is my kryptonite. But the apartment is no longer a sanctuary. I have a new neighbor. Window's right here. He enjoys doing naked kung fu. Some things you cannot unsee.
Dr. Spencer Reid: [opening quotation] T.S. Eliot wrote "This is the way the world ends. Not with a bang, but with a whimper."
Jennifer Jareau: [closing quotation] "Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces, I would still plant my apple tree." - Martin Luther.
Allie Leighton: [on the phone with a friend] You mean that place in the old market? Yeah, that sounds like fun, but I'm gonna have to pass. 'Cause I'd fall asleep in the middle of the dance floor. The restaurant was packed tonight. If I never have to make another kale and potato mousseline again, it'll be too soon. Okay. Tell everyone I said hi. Next time, I promise. Good night.
Matt Simmons: Kristy and I can't take two steps in our house without tripping over the kids' toys.
Jennifer Jareau: Yeah, tell me about it.
Dr. Spencer Reid: Guys, I read about a guy in California who only has 79 items to his name, including his underwear.
Luke Alvez: Hey, I am all for living with only the things you really need.
Penelope Garcia: Amen. Me, too, right?
[off JJ's look, she realizes the insult]
Penelope Garcia: What?
Matt Simmons: How many fuzzy pens, unicorn statues, mermaid paperweights does one need at her desk?
Penelope Garcia: All of them.
Emily Prentiss: Garcia, round up Dave and Tara. We have a case.
Emily Prentiss: Virginia State Police have asked for our help. It seems three young women have gone missing under similar circumstances in the last five years.
Matt Simmons: And why are we just hearing about this now?
Emily Prentiss: Well, our field office in Richmond was called in to consult, but they haven't been able to crack it, and last night a fourth woman went missing.
Emily Prentiss: So four young women go missing, late at night, in the same geographical area.
Dr. Spencer Reid: There's been no ATM, no cell phone, credit card activity.
Matt Simmons: And no ransom demands. These weren't kidnappings.
Luke Alvez: Bodies have never been found. The unsub could be holding them.
Emily Prentiss: Or he's good at permanent concealment.
Matt Simmons: None of the missing women look alike. This unsub is not hunting a specific type. He's even crossed racial lines.
Emily Prentiss: Okay, let's look at what they do have in common. They are all young, single, educated professionals.
David Rossi: A doctor, a teacher, a dentist, and a chef. Sounds like the start of a bad joke.
Jennifer Jareau: The unsub could hold a grudge against accomplished women, especially if he feels inferior.
Dr. Spencer Reid: You know, the unemployment rate in Virginia is only 3.7%. But if he's out of work, he might resent them for being better educated or making more money.
Dr. Tara Lewis: And you also need to throw rejection into the mix. I mean, this guy could be a jilted lover or feel frustrated by the type of woman he thinks he can't get.
Emily Prentiss: Garcia, any luck finding a connection between these women?
Penelope Garcia: Nothing on social media.
David Rossi: Were any of the dating or in a relationship?
Penelope Garcia: Not that I can see. They haven't posted, you know, any typical romantic pics with a boyfriend or girlfriend.
Luke Alvez: Assuming the women are still alive, the unsub would need a place to hold them. A home, warehouse, abandoned building.
Dr. Spencer Reid: He could be keeping them in multiple locations, in which case he most likely has a large truck or van.
Jennifer Jareau: He appears to be a night owl. All of the abductions took place around midnight.
Matt Simmons: Could do shift work. Maybe that's the time he gets off from his job.
Emily Prentiss: Matt, Dave, go check out the latest crime scene. Tara, Luke, talk to Allie's co-workers at the restaurant. Captain Skinner from the State Police is on his way in. We will work the case from here.
Captain Chuck Skinner: Without any bodies turning up over the years, we debated if the three women just decided to up and leave their lives. It happens. But now with that chef gone missing...
Emily Prentiss: Well, we're happy to help.
Captain Chuck Skinner: I should warn you the media's been reporting that the BAU's been called in on this. Before I got here, the relative of a woman who went missing years ago came in demanding to talk to you.
Jennifer Jareau: News stories often bring all kinds of people out of the woodwork.
Captain Chuck Skinner: This one's different.
Jennifer Jareau: How so?
Captain Chuck Skinner: Her name is Joanna Miller, and her sister Chrissy vanished five years ago. Any time there's a missing person case or a woman's body is found, Joanna shows up.
Emily Prentiss: But you don't think Chrissy's case is related to the recent abductions.
Captain Chuck Skinner: She was sixteen and in all sorts of trouble; drinking, drugs. Chronic runaway. My heart goes out to the family, but no, I don't.
Jennifer Jareau: I can talk to her.
Emily Prentiss: Let's bring her in.
David Rossi: No luck with the security cameras.
Matt Simmons: This was found next to Allie's car.
David Rossi: [reading the flyer] 20K a month. Well, we're in the wrong line of work.
Matt Simmons: Text code and number's disconnected. So if the unsub put this on her windshield, it could have been a ruse to grab her before she could drive away.
David Rossi: He might have known her routine. A deserted parking garage at night, it would be easy to take someone without being noticed.
Matt Simmons: They didn't find any traces of blood. Maybe he wanted her unharmed.
David Rossi: Let's hope so.
Penelope Garcia: I looked into the disappearance of Chrissy Miller. I found something significant. That same week that Chrissy disappeared, another teen, Kylie Pritchard, also went missing.
Jennifer Jareau: Eighteen and pregnant. Like Chrissy, the police checked off the "troubled runaway" box.
Penelope Garcia: Yeah. And this will also whet your mystery whistle. Days after Kylie and Chrissy went missing, Dr. Roberta Childs vanished.
Emily Prentiss: So if this is the same unsub, he probably started with high-risk victims like runaways, then graduated to high-profile ones.
Jennifer Jareau: What if Joanna Miller was right and her sister's disappearance is connected to the abduction of the professional women from five years ago?
Emily Prentiss: Garcia, expand your search for...
Penelope Garcia: Missing women in Virginia and the metro D.C. area. I can read your voices and your minds.
Penelope Garcia: In the last five years, there have been two dozen missing person cases, mostly runaways, and young females.
Emily Prentiss: So we have two waves of abductions: teen runaways and accomplished women. Dr. Childs was an obstetrician. What if some of the other runaways were pregnant?
Jennifer Jareau: Joanna said Chrissy was cleaning up her act before she disappeared. What if she was pregnant, too? Garcia, can you...
Penelope Garcia: In the flashiest of flashes, yes, I can. Uh... yeah, here's a medical chart from a downtown free clinic. Chrissy was pregnant. Two months, to be exact.
Jennifer Jareau: Okay, I get the unsub taking teen runaways. He probably figured fewer people would be looking for them. But why go out of his way to abduct pregnant ones?
Emily Prentiss: And what happened to the babies?
David Rossi: Five years ago, the unsub takes two pregnant teens. It's obvious why he then takes an obstetrician.
Matt Simmons: If he's taken other teen girls through the years and keeping them alive, they'd all be mothers with young children now.
Dr. Tara Lewis: Yeah, mothers and children with needs. Medical, dental, educational, and nutritional.
Luke Alvez: Yeah, and who would be better caretakers than a doctor, a dentist, a teacher, and a chef?
David Rossi: With such a large group, he'd need to control them to prevent escapes or rebellions.
Dr. Tara Lewis: And some could be staying willingly. Others because they're afraid or feel they have no choice.
Luke Alvez: You know, those are all reasons given by ex-cult members when asked why they didn't leave sooner.
Matt Simmons: This has the aspects of a cult, but members typically join by their own volition, not abducted.
David Rossi: There's nothing typical about this case.
Captain Chuck Skinner: Local walking his dog noticed the body. Doesn't look like she's been here very long.
Luke Alvez: Well, the disposal site's inside the unsub's abduction zone. Probably knows the area, feels comfortable here.
Emily Prentiss: [uncovering the body] This changes things. Dr. Roberta Childs. Five years older, but it's definitely her.
Luke Alvez: They didn't try to conceal the body. I mean, they could have hidden her here in the brush over there.
Captain Chuck Skinner: Maybe he didn't have the time.
Emily Prentiss: He could be devolving. Wrapping the body suggests the unsub cared about her comfort even at the end of her life.
Luke Alvez: She wasn't starved. Muscle tone's good, which you wouldn't see in someone who's been restrained for so many years.
Emily Prentiss: Her hair has been washed recently and clothes are clean. You think the unsub staged this to look like a suicide?
Luke Alvez: [looking at the victim's arm] It's unlikely. This wasn't her first attempt.
Emily Prentiss: So the bandages were someone else's attempt to save her.
Luke Alvez: She's been alive all of this time. And that fact bodes well for the other missing women.
Emily Prentiss: Assuming they're still alive, the suicide of a long-term captive could cause dissent among the group.
[her phone rings]
Emily Prentiss: Yeah, Garcia.
[listening for a moment]
Emily Prentiss: Another woman's been taken.
Lawrence Coleman: Damn it, Irene, you should have known she was gonna try to kill herself again.
Irene Jacobs: We knew this was going to happen when we first started planning years ago. We talked about it, remember? What is done is done.
Lawrence Coleman: She betrayed our mission.
Irene Jacobs: But did we have to dump her by the side of the road like that, like she was trash? Roberta has been a part of our lives for five years.
Lawrence Coleman: You wrapped her in a blanket, and that was more than she deserved.
Irene Jacobs: I need to tell the others something.
Lawrence Coleman: Well, just make sure they don't get the same stupid idea. It could ruin everything.
Irene Jacobs: Lawrence, you're not having doubts that it's going to happen, are you?
Lawrence Coleman: I believe it more than ever now.
Irene Jacobs: As do I.
Lawrence Coleman: Let's just make sure this new one does, too.
Emily Prentiss: What do we know?
Matt Simmons: The unsub struck again, this time in the open in a busy parking lot.
David Rossi: JJ and Tara are still there. They found an eyewitness that caught the whole event on a cell phone.
Luke Alvez: Well it's obvious he's not abducting and driving at the same time. He's got a partner.
Matt Simmons: He took a lot of risk abducting in broad daylight like that.
David Rossi: He looked at something before he took the woman. It made him hesitate. Matt, take it back.
[Matt rewinds the footage]
David Rossi: That building in the background. It's a digital clock. 11:57:30. He waited until that precise moment before he grabbed her.
Matt Simmons: Yeah, but that was during the day. All the other abductions took place close to 12:00 midnight.
Luke Alvez: Clocks strike 12:00 twice a day. Maybe it's not AM or PM that matters.
Emily Prentiss: The numbers 11:57:30 might mean something to him.
Dr. Spencer Reid: It could be an address, a code. It might even have religious significance.
Penelope Garcia: Police IDed the latest victim. Paige Burrell.
Emily Prentiss: Paige is 35, single. Guys, she's a pediatrician.
David Rossi: The unsub lost a doctor, so he took a doctor. A one-for-one-swap.
Matt Simmons: But he still needs a doctor's specific skill set.
Luke Alvez: Which means that our missing women and their children are still alive.
Jennifer Jareau: Joanna, the last thing I wanna do is give you false hope. There's been some developments. And there may be a connection between Chrissy and the recent missing women.
Joanna Miller: I don't know whether to be upset or relieved.
Jennifer Jareau: I understand. And there's something else. Did you know Chrissy was two months pregnant when she disappeared?
Joanna Miller: What?
Jennifer Jareau: We think whoever took her also took other pregnant teens and is holding them somewhere.
Joanna Miller: Oh god. Well, what about the baby? Is it okay? Where are they? How could anyone...
Jennifer Jareau: We're working to find out now.
Jennifer Jareau: Do you have any idea who the father could be?
Joanna Miller: Maybe this neighborhood boy Parker. They were hanging out a lot.
Jennifer Jareau: Does he still live in the area?
Joanna Miller: No. He moved down south a week before she went missing.
Jennifer Jareau: Okay. Did Chrissy keep a journal, a diary, a blog?
Joanna Miller: No, nothing like that. Tell me, what can I do to help?
Jennifer Jareau: You can go home. Try to relax, and please, just keep the TV off. I promise I will let you know when I hear something new.
Joanna Miller: You promise?
Jennifer Jareau: I promise.
Joanna Miller: I'll wait for your call. And thank you for believing when no one else would.
Dr. Spencer Reid: JJ. We need to gather everyone. I know why he's doing this.
Dr. Spencer Reid: We said the timing of the unsub's abductions may be important to him.
Captain Chuck Skinner: Why is that?
Dr. Spencer Reid: Victim number one: Dr. Roberta Childs. She signed out of the hospital at 11:50 p.m. Now, victim number two, Diane Pearl, her home alarm system was tripped at 11:52 p.m., Victim three, Elise Waterston, she was a no-show for an 11:55 pickup from her dental office. Cell phone records show that Allie Leighton, the fourth victim, ended her phone call at 11:57 p.m., and lastly, Paige Burrell, the digital clock where she was abducted read 11:57:30.
Dr. Tara Lewis: Okay, so based on your timeline, our unsub's counting up to 12:00.
Dr. Spencer Reid: No, he's counting down.
Captain Chuck Skinner: Counting down to what?
Dr. Spencer Reid: I think the unsub's abducting women based on the doomsday clock.
Captain Chuck Skinner: And what's that?
David Rossi: The symbolic clock that warns the world how close we are to total destruction.
Matt Simmons: Midnight on the clock represents a hypothetical global catatrophe, like a... a nuclear war. Uh, the number of minutes to midnight stand for how soon that could happen.
Jennifer Jareau: Since 1947 when a group of atomic scientists created the clock, the minute hand's been reset many times.
Dr. Spencer Reid: For the last five years, it's been consistently ticking down. It was last set at two and a half minutes to midnight.
Emily Prentiss: And the closest it ever was was two minutes in 1953 when the U.S. and Russia tested the first H-bomb.
Jennifer Jareau: We could be looking at a doomsday cult.
Captain Chuck Skinner: So he's like one of these survivalists who lives in the woods and wears tinfoil hats.
Luke Alvez: Actually, the idea of preparing for the end is moving from the fringes of society into mainstream culture.
Matt Simmons: Yeah, they call themselves preppers. They're trying to retain a certain standard of living for themselves and others while riding out the Apocalpyse, be it nuclear or civil unrest.
David Rossi: The wealthy are jumping on board. They're hoarding cryptocurrency and buying custom survival shelters.
Matt Simmons: And the super rich are taking it to another level. They're buying private islands, land in New Zealand, their private jets are always gassed up ready to whisk them away at a moment's notice.
Emily Prentiss: So, the victims are part of the unsub's prep to repopulate a new civilization in a post-apocalyptic world.
Dr. Tara Lewis: And the clock starting to tick steadily down five years ago was the trigger.
Matt Simmons: And with it being so close to midnight and us breathing down his neck, he may decide that it's time to cut all ties with the outside world.
Emily Prentiss: We need to find him before that happens.
Jennifer Jareau: Joanna, this may sound strange, but did Chrissy ever talk about the end of the world? You know, doomsday?
Joanna Miller: Yes, but she isn't crazy. She's a little naive, that's all.
Jennifer Jareau: And what would she say about it?
Joanna Miller: That the end was coming soon, that we had to get ready.
Jennifer Jareau: Where would she get that idea from?
Joanna Miller: I don't know. She'd get high and binge watch some TV show about zombies. She became obsessed with anything to do with Armageddon. Does that have something to do with her disappearance?
Jennifer Jareau: It might. Uh, could she have met someone that encouraged her to believe the end was near?
Joanna Miller: She'd play her guitar on the street for money. Maybe she met someone there. Please, if she's alive, why haven't I heard from her?
Jennifer Jareau: She may be under the sway of whoever has her. Look, based on our experience with deprogramming, it could be hard for her to step back into the life she once had.
Paige Burrell: I'm Paige. I know you.
Allie Leighton: Allie.
Paige Burrell: Yeah, you're that chef. You're all over the news right now.
Allie Leighton: I am?
Paige Burrell: People are looking for you. The FBI, too. Hopefully they're looking for both of us. Do you know a way out of here?
Allie Leighton: No, not... not yet. Did you see that video?
Paige Burrell: What was that? Whoever made it is seriously out of their mind.
David Rossi: The unsub's probably been stockpiling provisions, weapons, and other supplies for years.
Emily Prentiss: That would take a lot of research and planning. Garcia, what kind of online presence do preppers have?
Penelope Garcia: They're a bunch of chatty Cathys. There's a plethora of chat rooms, podcasts, websites, all about Tee-Ought-Walk-Kee. Uh, that's what they call "The end of the world as we know it".
Luke Alvez: What do they talk about?
Penelope Garcia: Everything from food storage tips to basic first aid, best place to get a gas mask, places to live that won't be affected by climate change. Website here that tells preppers they should get corrective eye surgery.
David Rossi: That makes sense. If you were to lose or break your glasses when the Earth is laid bare, something tells me it would be hard to find a LensCrafters.
Penelope Garcia: It's like that episode in "The Twilight Zone".
Emily Prentiss: Garcia.
Penelope Garcia: Oh, I'm digressing.
Emily Prentiss: Do a search of the metro D.C. area for men who fall into both the survivalist and prepper camps.
Penelope Garcia: Okay. Preppers love their firewalls, but it's no match for moi. 110 names.
Luke Alvez: And what about ones that live in Virginia?
Penelope Garcia: Seventy. Next player.
Emily Prentiss: Do any of them own a black van?
Penelope Garcia: Negative.
Matt Simmons: Well, technical people usually view risk mathematically. Garcia, filter the list for accountants, engineers, math teachers, and... computer techs.
Penelope Garcia: Okay, I'm filtering this through my digital colander. Nicely done. Twenty names.
Emily Prentiss: So, for the past five years, this guy's been amassing food, water, medical supplies, air filtration materials, weapons, and ammo.
Penelope Garcia: Oh, that's, like, all of them.
[getting a result]
Penelope Garcia: Whoa, Nelly.
Emily Prentiss: What is it?
Penelope Garcia: I found a civil engineer, Lawrence Coleman. He's bought all of those things, but also chloroform is on his shopping list.
David Rossi: Does he show any interest in the doomsday clock?
Penelope Garcia: Obsessed is more like it.
Luke Alvez: Preppers typically plan to shelter in place, bug in. Which means that they want to ride out any bad situation at home.
David Rossi: What if they can't?
Luke Alvez: Then they bug out and they go to secret locations in remote areas.
Matt Simmons: Well, if Coleman is keeping the women and kids all in one place, it would have to be a really big space.
Penelope Garcia: I got a home and a work address for him, and also he has rented multiple storage locations in the last five years.
Emily Prentiss: You know what to do.
Penelope Garcia: Yeah. Sent it to your phones.
Jennifer Jareau: Hey, Emily, Coleman's not here.
Emily Prentiss: We've all hit dead ends.
David Rossi: We know he has a willing partner driving the van. She's one of the early victims who bought into his paranoia. She may be the key.
Emily Prentiss: Garcia, check for women who communicated with Coleman online. Look for anyone who shared his fervor about the end of days.
Penelope Garcia: Fervor, female, doomsday. Got it. Oh, looks like there's a lid for every pot. Even the crackpots.
Penelope Garcia: Coleman had beaucoup prepper ladies who were willing to share more than their canned meat with him.
David Rossi: Was one as obsessed as Coleman?
Penelope Garcia: That would be Irene Jacobs. She lives in Culpeper, Virginia. She works as a substance abuse counselor at New Dawn Outreach Center. And... booyah, she drives a black van.
Jennifer Jareau: Joanna Miller mentioned her sister was seeing a counselor.
Penelope Garcia: Yeah. Chrissy Miller was one of her patients.
Jennifer Jareau: Which was how Coleman found out she was pregnant. What about Kylie Pritchard and some of the other missing teens?
Penelope Garcia: Jinkies. It's like Irene was spoon-feeding Coleman his victims.
Emily Prentiss: They trusted her and she betrayed them. We need addresses.
Jennifer Jareau: There's nothing here.
Dr. Spencer Reid: There's gotta be.
Jennifer Jareau: Where, Spence? We drove around the entire property. There's nothing here except the ground we're standing on.
Dr. Spencer Reid: [a thought strikes him] The ground we're standing on.
Jennifer Jareau: What?
Dr. Spencer Reid: In the 1990s, the government closed and abandoned military installations across America, including Virginia. Some of them included underground strategic command centers.
Jennifer Jareau: A bunker built to withstand a nuclear blast. What if this land Irene Jacobs owns is over one of them?
Dr. Spencer Reid: Well, the main entrance would most likely be booby-trapped. So we need to try to find the escape hatch.
Luke Alvez: Reid and JJ are definitely here somewhere.
Emily Prentiss: I can't get them on their phones.
Matt Simmons: They must be sixty feet underground.
Luke Alvez: Coleman has access to a large weapons cache down there. We don't want another Waco.
Emily Prentiss: What did Reid and JJ walk into?
Jennifer Jareau: I can't get through.
Dr. Spencer Reid: The doors are airtight and the glass is bomb-blast resistant. Our bullets would just bounce off.
Jennifer Jareau: Okay, uh, Garcia told everyone we were heading down here, so... wait, did you say airtight? Are we gonna run out of air?
Dr. Spencer Reid: No. High carbon dioxide levels are gonna kill us before low oxygen levels do.
Jennifer Jareau: What about the keypad?
Dr. Spencer Reid: On a 0 to 9 keypad, assuming a four digit code, there are 10,000 possible combinations. If you figure five seconds to input each combination, that'll take 13.89 hours, and that's not even accounting the finger fatigue.
Jennifer Jareau: Right. So even if we did try, after too many failed attempts, we would probably be locked in here anyway.
Penelope Garcia: Oh, my gosh, I was so worried about you guys being in that bunker. It made me very claustrophobic. We need to look for an even bigger apartment for me. Even bigger.
Jennifer Jareau: Mm, sure. We can look tomorrow.
Matt Simmons: I gotta say, Coleman's bunker was pretty impressive.
Emily Prentiss: Yeah, but not where I want to spend my last day on Earth.
Matt Simmons: Yeah? Where would you?
Emily Prentiss: Never thought about it.
Penelope Garcia: I... I don't want to think about it.
Dr. Tara Lewis: I would definitely be on a beach.
Luke Alvez: I think I'd prefer the mountains.
Matt Simmons: I'd be with my family.
Jennifer Jareau: Same. Spence?
Dr. Spencer Reid: Paris with my mom. She liked Paris.
Dr. Tara Lewis: You know, something tells me Dave has this all planned out.
David Rossi: Don't you know it. When the end comes, you'll find me at home enjoying a meal of carbonara a la Rossi, and if there's still time, I will adjourn to my patio to partake in a double Jack and a vintage Don Carlos.
Luke Alvez: That sounds great.
Emily Prentiss: You mind if we join you?
