Young male college students - the type the BAU classify as the alpha male - are on spring break vacation in South Padre Island. They are being raped by another man and suffocated to death specifically at the Hudson Street Hotel. The men are found naked in a fetal position in a place where they are sure to be found quickly the in their hotel room. They are also positioned in such a way that housecleaning would have cleaned up any evidence before finding the bodies first. The victims thus far are not gay indicating that any physical act was not consensual. When the next victim is found at another hotel, the BAU believe that this is a red herring, and that the unsub may be a guest or probably an employee at the Hudson Street Hotel. They also believe, based on sexual orientation of the victims, that there are two unsubs: a submissive female who lures the victims, and a dominant male who does the raping and killing.

Reid mentions Tobias Hankel, who was in the episodes Criminal Minds: The Big Game (2007) and Criminal Minds: Revelations (2007). See more »


When Reid and Morgan are talking at the end about Tobias Hankel (from Criminal Minds: The Big Game and Criminal Minds: Revelations), Morgan mentions that he drugged and tortured Reid for 2 days. Reid says, "No, it was the persona of his father who did those things to me." It was in fact the persona of Tobias, not the father, who drugged Reid and ultimately gave him an addiction, in order to ease the pain of being tortured. See more »

Truly Amazing
24 January 2010 | by gerrybinghamSee all my reviews

I put my hand up and say that I searched this episode out on the Internet for one reason- Jackson Rathbone. And by God he did not disappoint. Having only seen him in Twilight, his acting abilities were vague to me, but this has cleared them up.

He gave such a superb performance in a role that not many male actors would be able to carry off. The seamless transition into the multiple personality was quite possibly the piece de resistance of a wonderful all-round performance.

This only leaves me wondering- as he is so talented, why was he a relative unknown until Twilight, where all he can do is twitch?
