Storyline

The BAU's latest case takes the team to San Francisco, California. For each of the last three years at the same time of the year, three homeless men have been found murdered in three consecutive days, after which the murders stop. Each is killed execution style but show signs of blunt force trauma prior to death. The first of the murdered homeless men this year has been found, meaning that the BAU expect two more over the next two days unless they can find the unsub. Although he has direct orders not to get involved by Strauss, Special Supervisory Agent Sam Cooper, a former BAU member who now heads his own hand picked team, asks Hotch for a favor: he wants his team in on the case as he has a theory. He has noticed that immediately after the three murders, a father and his teen-aged daughter have also been found murdered, which he feels is connected. He suspects there is currently a missing father and daughter which no one is looking for in connection to being ultimately murdered. ... Written by Huggo

Poor
25 October 2010 | by darkest-hour2004See all my reviews

Nothing like Criminal Minds previous episodes (and I hope future ones!) The new team were unlikable, the acting pretty poor and the case itself was run-of-the-mill. All of this combined to make an episode that when thinking back, actually angers me. Nothing psychological (or any behavioural analysis) here. Definitely skippable, and easily the worst episode to date.

The dialogue between some of the characters was laughable, in particular between Prentiss and the English guy (who, despite being from Newcastle, sounded a little Irish to me?), and the sniper sequence at the end was just the icing on the cake of cheese.
