Storyline

The BAU's latest case brings a face familiar to J.J. into their office. The familiar face is that of Sarah Hillridge, whose son Charlie was abducted eight years ago when he was eight. Sarah, who believes Charlie is still alive, comes to see J.J. anytime the BAU work on a child abduction case, the latest abducted child being eight year old Aimee Lynch. However J.J. cannot deny that Aimee's abduction bears a striking similarity to Charlie's: the abductions took place in northeast Virginia, the parents were distracted from their own child upon hearing another mother yelling for her own missing child, and the children were abducted in an extremely public location. Upon further investigation, Garcia discovers twelve children in total, all abducted within Virginia in the last ten years, all around the same age, none of the bodies ever found. The BAU come up with a profile of unsubs who could easily keep a lot of children without seeming unusual, and what agencies would have contact with ... Written by Huggo

Quotes

Sarah Hillridge: How long have you been doing this, Dr. Reid?
Dr. Spencer Reid: 5 years, 7 months, and 19 days.
Sarah Hillridge: In your experience, what normally happens?
Dr. Spencer Reid: Charlie was 8 when he was taken, which means developmentally, he was in middle childhood.

Great casting
8 September 2014 | by jennalfclarkSee all my reviews

While this episode may not stand out from the rest of this series in other ways, the casting was fantastic. Bud Cort is not only associated here with a funeral home and a hearse, hearkening back to his role as Harold in Harold and Maude, but is also paired with Beth Grant, who will be familiar to most moviegoers and TV viewers for her many notable roles, and is perhaps best known for her part in Donnie Darko. Evan Peters has also gained fame since this episode first aired, and does a great job in a fairly unusual role. All the other characters are well- played by lesser-known but no less talented actors, particularly the father who loses his son, played by David Youse, whose performance is heartbreaking at the bittersweet ending of this installment. Matthew Grey Gubler's direction seems competent, though the typical pitfalls of the show still exist.
