Because of a skydiving accident, Gideon is forced to stay in the office while the team is out in the field. While in the office, a seemingly disorganized Gideon invades Garcia's work space which does not sit well with her neat and tidy sensibilities. The BAU are working on a case in a small town in Tennessee where two homicides have occurred in a 48 hours span, the first homicides there in sixty-four years. The two murders are seemingly unrelated beyond happening in the same town. The team focuses on the more brutal second killing, that of Annie Stuart, whose body was eviscerated of her liver, kidney and lungs. Because of the disembowelment, Gideon believes he understands the reasoning behind some circular blood stains at the crime scene. It isn't until another murder occurs that their theory is strengthened. However, it also unfortunately adds the connection of a seven year old boy named Wally Brisbane who has gone missing.

Will sings the song "This Is My Father's World" with his music teacher at the beginning of the episode. The sheet music is displayed both on the piano and later spattered with the victim's blood. Although the sheet is titled correctly, the music on the sheet is not "This Is My Father's World" but is instead a beginning piano piece called "The Spinning Wheel". See more »

What an eye-sore
31 March 2019 | by aegiswiz-accedeSee all my reviews

Last few weeks I'm been on something of a Criminal Minds "re-run" watching binge. I imagine about every episode gives me the creeps in an entertaining kind of way. I've probably watched several seasons in the last few weeks, likely seen dozens of the same episode in the process. Criminal Minds is just an addictive kind of show and I think that says something about the writers and actors.

In the years and years I've been on IMDB I've only been compelled to write a review a hand full of times. What compelled me to search out the review link today was Charles Haid. The director.

I was actually angry at the filming of this episode. Watching it and the blur outs and jerking around was like listening to fingernails on a chalk board. This method of filming is criminal. Can't tell you what it is called or even describe it appropriately, but the filming, flashing, jerking, snap to close up, snap back out, ad nausea had me cross eyed and stiff necked within 20 minutes, so I just want give Charles Haid the "You're number one" middle finger salute.

Nothing really bad about the episode, the writers, actors, or producers but this was one ugly show that was painful to watch. I blame Charles Haid. Sorry Charlie.
