Le DSC est alerté après qu'un homme ait massacré son fils sur le bord de la route parce qu'il hallucinait. Le DSC apprend alors que le même soir, l'hôpital local a eu de nombreux cas. Il faut maintenant trouver le profil type de l'empoisonneur (militant fanatique, extorqueur, farceur ou vengeur) parce qu'à part les farceurs, un empoisonnement à petit echelle est un essai avant l'empoisonnement à grande echelle.

L'analyse révèle que la drogue ne provoque pas de violence, elle l'a juste amplifié chez l'homme déjà en colère. Elle est coupée avec de le rohypnol, la drogue du viol parce qu'elle provoque l'amnésie: personne ne se souvient de comment ils ont été empoisonné. Et comme les composants sont facilement trouvables, dont dans un lycée, l'enquête s'oriente vers un lycéen avec le profil farceur. Mais il s'avère que ce lycéen est innocent, il a drogué sa copine parce qu'elle avait disjoncté à cause du LSD. Ce qui prouve que ce n'est pas un farceur, ni un extorqueur car pas de rançon, ni un militant car aucune revendication. L'enquête prend la direction de l'empoisonneur vengeur.

Le profil développe que le coupable est rusé (rohypnol) et qu'il a subi une injustice : le LSD change la perception de la réalité. Il se plaint d'une injustice. Il n'a encore rien fait avant mais il observe les résultats de son test. L'équipe s'attend à un empoisonnement massif. Problème : les journalistes s'en mèlent, annonçant un empoisonnement dans un restaurant mais la journaliste ne dit rien sur le nom ce qui provoque une panique dans la population, tous pensant être malades.

L'enquête piétine jusqu'à ce que Morgan percute que le café n'est peut-être qu'une coïncidence et au même moment, une victime apparait à l'hôpital alors qu'elle n'a pas mis les pieds au café. Ellie percute que ça vient peut-être de la banque d'en face. La vidéo prouve que toutes les victimes ont été dans cette banque et ont touché aux bonbons offerts en file d'attente. La dernière victime n'a pas pris les bonbons mais en a déposé. Le problème, elle est gravement malade, souffrant de botulisme.

On se retrouve dans une entreprise avec des personnes partant en camping et un homme louche y circulant. De retour sur l'équipe qui pense que la dernière victime est complice : l'empoisonneur s'est servi d'elle pour placer les bonbons avant de l'empoisonner au botulisme tuant en 36 heures pour se débarasser d'elle. Comme elle est secrétaire, l'équipe s'oriente sur l'entreprise où elle travaille. Problème : grosse entreprise et beaucoup de licensiements.

Penelope travaille sur ces noms. Le reste de l'équipe part dans l'entreprise pour enquêter sur la dernière victime. Penelope déniche un mec d'une entreprise racheté par la grosse qui a fait une demande de pret au nom de la dernière victime pour pouvoir déposer son brevet. Les 2 sont rejetés parce que la grosse entreprise a déjà fait une demande de brevet, dans la banque aux bonbons empoisonnés. Le DSC va l'arrêter et le coince. Mais il ne se suicide pas ce qui pose un problème. L'équipe cherche alors à le faire avouer. Il s'avère que le coupable sortait avec la secrétaire dernière victime. Il accuse l'entreprise de l'avoir tué elle puis lui et tout ce qu'il avait.

Gideon et Hotchner prennent alors le parti du coupable lui expliquant qu'il peut avoir justice au tribunal grâce à eux (Hotch se faisant passer pour un avocat). Le coupable avoue alors qu'il a empoisonné le ponch dans une réception de l'entreprise cet après midi. Le DSC intervient rapidement et à temps pour injecter les anti toxines.

Mais Gideon n'est pas satisfait. Ce n'est pas logique, il aurait dû se suicider. Et Spencer arrive avec un résultat: une victime de la banque est diabétique et n'aurait pas pris un bonbon. Mais cette victime a touché une enveloppe et Spencer se rappelle que la secrétaire dernière victime disait "les en, les en". L'équipe déduit que les bonbons et les ponch était un leurre et qu'il tstait la contamination par les enveloppe et la colle qu'elle contient.

Mais le coupable se suicide. Et Morgan découvre que les invités au ponch étaient subalternes. Il ne reste plus que les dirigeants en séminaire dans les bois, isolés de tout, y compris des portables. On bascule alors sur le camping où tous lèchent des enveloppes. Le DSC se dépèche et les sauvent juste à temps.

Jack Fisher: Kinda scary, huh?

Eric Fisher: What?

Jack Fisher: The trees. They kinda look like those hooded creatures in the movie, don't they? Did you like the movie?

Eric Fisher: I told you I did.

Jack Fisher: No, no. You said "nyeh." "Nyeh" is exactly halfway between "yeah" and "nah" That's the kind of answer I would tell my students is "ambiguous." Was that your intent?

Eric Fisher: More or less.

Jack Fisher: Oh, Bud, I know it's tough on you, but, hey, look, think on the bright side... You know, every other week, we get to stay up late, eat junk food, and... Go see movies your Mom would never let you see in a million years.

Eric Fisher: What are you doing?

Jack Fisher: Then you didn't see that deer?

Eric Fisher: No! Where?

Jack Fisher: It's gone. I must have... Wow! It must have run away.

Eric Fisher: Whatever...

Jack Fisher: Oooh... Ah...

Eric Fisher: What?

Jack Fisher: Ah, it's a flat. We must have blown a tire driving on the shoulder… I'll be right back.

Eric Fisher: Maybe we should call someone.

Jack Fisher: It's a flat tire. It's... You know, despite what your mom says I'm not completely useless. I'll be right back.

———–

Jack Fisher: Hello?

Eric Fisher: What is it, Dad?

Jack Fisher: It's nothing. It's just, it's just the wind, Eric. Get back in the car… It's all right, it's all right. It's just me. Clumsy me. It's all right… Hello? Who's there?

Eric Fisher: What is it Dad?

Jack Fisher: Stay in the car… Get away! What do you want? Get away from me! Get away! Get away! Get away! Get away!

———–

Officer: Hey, hey, hey! Calm down inside there. Calm down. Yeah, I'm gonna need some backup, just past Exit 5. Car on the shoulder of the road, lone male in the driver's seat, under the influence of... Something… Wait, there might be another one… I'm gonna need an ambulance!

———–

Hanover: State trooper took this before the paramedics showed up. He's unconscious, has four broken bones. He's gonna be in the hospital for a month.

Jack Fisher: I didn't hurt my son.

Hanover: You remember removing the tire iron from the trunk?

Jack Fisher: No! No!

Hanover: What's the last thing you remember?

Jack Fisher: I picked Eric up from school. Friday, for the weekend. Who would do this?

———–

Aaron Hotchner: This happened two days ago in Beechwood, New Jersey. Mr. Fisher had ingested LSD one afternoon and didn't come down until 18 hours later.

Jennifer Jareau: The hospital reported 6 other patients who ingested LSD in the last 24 hours. The hospital called the CDC, the CDC called us.

Derek Morgan: So, a bunch of people got spiked.  What makes it a BAU case?

Aaron Hotchner: They each received 10 to 20 times the normal dose.

Spencer Reid: It's enough to kill a small child.

Elle Greenaway: Or cause a grown man to kill him with a tire iron.

Jennifer Jareau: Of the seven victims, there was one death and one coma. This is from the hospital's security footage the same night Fisher lost it.

Jason Gideon: These people didn't get spiked. These people were poisoned.

———–

Jason Gideon: Roman philosopher Lucretius wrote, "What is food to one is to others, bitter poison."

———–

Jennifer Jareau: Of the 7 victims, Gail Norman was the only death.  She was 78. Ran out into the middle of the road, and she was hit by a car. She was DOA.

Aaron Hotchner: The other potentially fatal case is 9 year old Brittany Canon. She fell out of a tree house and fractured her skull. She's in a coma and the doctors don't know if she's going to come out of it.

Jason Gideon: How do you wanna handle the press?

Jennifer Jareau: We still don't even know how these people got dosed. I think it would be irresponsible to issue a warning without specifics. It'll just cause panic. I did notify the local PD, though, to be discreet.

Derek Morgan: How is it possible that none of these people knew how they got poisoned?

Aaron Hotchner: None of them remembers anything about the day it happened.

Jennifer Jareau: These people were so messed up, it's made it difficult for local PD to retrace the victim's steps.

Jason Gideon: So, we need to go on precedent. We know there are four types of poisoners who target multiple victims.

Aaron Hotchner: There's the true believer, the political terrorist/religious cult.

Derek Morgan: There's the extortionist. The product tamperer holds the business hostage in exchange for money.

Elle Greenaway: Or the prankster. Usually a younger offender who doesn't mean any harm and it's basically just a big practical joke.

Aaron Hotchner: And the avenger, someone with a personal vendetta who chooses poison as their weapon.

Jason Gideon: We need to find out as quickly as possible which type he is. Because with the exception of the prankster, all these types commonly test their poison on a small scale before appearing at a larger attack.

Derek Morgan: Then, let's hope this one was just a prank.

Jason Gideon: I would suggest we split up the victims, see if there's a pattern to the victimology.

Aaron Hotchner: Most of them are still in the hospital. I'll call local PD to meet us there.

Spencer Reid: I'll check the lab reports. Maybe there's a clue to the unsub's motive in the specific nature of the poison he used.

Aaron Hotchner: I can't imagine anybody could want this to happen.

———–

Hanover: Detective Hanover, Beechwood PD.

Aaron Hotchner: Agent Hotchner, this is Agent Gideon.

Hanover: Thanks for coming down on such short notice. Doctor said he may have permanent brain damage. I've never seen anything like this.

Aaron Hotchner: Well, let's hope we can help him.

Hanover: Have you had a chance to review the victim's files?

Jason Gideon: We're especially interested in talking to the boy's father.

Aaron Hotchner: We'd like to get a sense of why he turned violent... While the lab analyzes the specific nature of the LSD he was dosed with, we'd like to get our own sense: was it the drug itself or was there something else going on? And hopefully, that can give us a little bit of a window into the motive of the offender.

Hanover: He's in the psych ward.

Jason Gideon: Well, we'll keep it short.

———–

Jason Gideon: Mr. Fisher?

Jack Fisher: Shrink or cop?

Jason Gideon: I'm an FBI profiler, so I guess I'm a little of each. I'm Jason Gideon… I can't imagine what you've been through… I understand you recently divorced your wife. Can you tell me why?

Jack Fisher: What do you wanna know? Was I angry about the divorce? I mean, was I so angry that I wanted to hurt my son to get back at her? Is that what you wanna know?

Jason Gideon: Were you?

Jack Fisher: Let me tell you something about my wife, okay? About what she did, in my house, in my bed. With the investment banker next door. Do you wanna know what the worst part is? My son, Eric… Is angry with me. She's the cheater! And he's angry at me! Me!

Jason Gideon: What did you do? Did you want to hurt her?

Jack Fisher: Of course!

Jason Gideon: And the kid? I mean, it's her kid, right? He takes her side. You wanna crush him, too. You wanna shut his obnoxious little mouth up for good.

Jack Fisher: No! No, he doesn't understand.

Jason Gideon: He took her side. I'm sure it's not the first time he's done that.

Jack Fisher: No! Eric. Oh, Eric! Why did this happen to you? Why?

Jason Gideon: Mr. Fisher!

Jack Fisher: Why!? Why?! Why?!

Jason Gideon: Calm down.

Jack Fisher: Why? Why?

Jason Gideon: Come on, come on, come on!

———–

Jason Gideon: Well, he's raw, broken, and seriously pissed off.

Aaron Hotchner: He didn't hurt the son to get back at the mother?

Jason Gideon: Not consciously, no. Rage was real but understandable... And he never apologized... When he lost control, he didn't even say, "Eric, I'm sorry." He said, "Eric, why'd this happen to you?" He never even confessed to hurting the kid.

Aaron Hotchner: So, the drugs tapped into the rage but didn't cause it?

Jason Gideon: Yeah, that's my guess.

Spencer Reid: That's consistent with the information we just received from the lab tox screens. They didn't find any trace of PCP or any other drug indicating the unsub was intentionally trying to make people violent. But they did find traces of rohypnol in all the victims.

Elle Greenaway: A central nervous system depressant, similar to valium, only ten times more potent. It's commonly known as a "roofie" or a date-rape drug.

Spencer Reid: Right, and one of its side effects is amnesia, which explains why none of the victims remember how they were poisoned.

Derek Morgan: We compared notes on the victims we talked to. So far there doesn't seem to be any pattern as to who got hit. Maybe the drugs themselves could explain what type of offender we're dealing with. A lot of kids are using LSD and rohypnol these days. Fisher is a high school teacher.

Jason Gideon: So it might be a prank after all.

Aaron Hotchner: Yeah, one that went horribly wrong.

Elle Greenaway: Yeah, I'm gonna get a list of students from Fisher. See you later.

Aaron Hotchner: Hotch… Okay... We'll be right there… Cops may have figured out where everybody was dosed.

———–

Hanover: Uniforms were on a canvas. Staff here remembers seeing 4 out of the 7 victims here the day they reported symptoms.

Jennifer Jareau: Please tell me your staff didn't mention the canvas was about a poisoning.

Hanover: They didn't, but I had to tell the owner.

Jason Gideon: Is that the owner?

Hanover: Nell Trucco.

Jennifer Jareau: I'll be shocked if this doesn't get leaked now.

Aaron Hotchner: Let's just hope nobody jumps to the conclusion it's bio-terrorism.

Jennifer Jareau: All right, I'm gonna go talk to the cafe staff. Make sure they know to keep it quiet.

———–

Jason Gideon: Can you think of anyone who would do something like this? High school kids hanging around?

Nell Trucco: Honestly, I can't tell them apart. You should talk to Danny.

Jason Gideon: Danny?

Nell Trucco: A busboy. High school kid. A lot of his friends come in here. His girlfriend was here Saturday night.

Aaron Hotchner: Is he here today?

Nell Trucco: He was supposed to come to work after school, but he called in sick.

Aaron Hotchner: What's his last name?

Nell Trucco: Ah, Wallace.

Aaron Hotchner: I'll have Elle check at the school.

Jason Gideon: You got a phone number for him?

———–

Elle Greenaway: Hotch, I checked the high school and Wallace's house. He wasn't there. So, now I'm at his girlfriend's house… Okay, I'll call you back.

———–

Elle Greenaway: Samantha?

Samantha: Yeah?

Elle Greenaway: I'm with the FBI. Can I talk to you for a minute?

———–

Elle Greenaway: Where are your parents?

Samantha: Working. What do you want?

Elle Greenaway: Well, you didn't go to school today, Samantha, and neither did your boyfriend.

Samantha: He's sick.

Elle Greenaway: Can I ask you something personal? I think that something might have happened to you. You wanna tell me about it?

Samantha: I don't know… I don't remember.

Elle Greenaway: What do you remember?

Samantha: He took me someplace on his motorcycle. I... I remember... Waking up, but I was naked. I was all beat up. And he was there. Above me. Holding me down.

Elle Greenaway: Who was?

Samantha: Danny. I called the doctor earlier. That could be her. Hello?

Danny Wallace: Samantha, listen to me. Don't hang up. Can you hear me?

Elle Greenaway: Keep him talking.

Danny Wallace: Samantha!

Samantha: What do you want?

Danny Wallace: Someone's there. Who did you call?

Samantha: Why do you think someone's here?

Danny Wallace: Don't mess with me, Samantha. Don't do it. If you say anything,..

Samantha: He hung up.

Elle Greenaway: Come with me. You're gonna call 911, and as soon as I leave, you lock the door behind me. Do it.

———–

Elle Greenaway: He is near his girlfriend's house. Hillcrest at Maple, ah, I can't see the other cross-street… Yeah… Danny Wallace, stop. FBI. You put your hands on top of your head. Off the bike. Hands on your head… This wasn't what you had in mind when you skipped school today, was it, Danny?

———–

Hanover: You wanna tell us about Saturday night, Danny?

Danny Wallace: I didn't do anything. Samantha doesn't know what she's talking about.

Elle Greenaway: A lot of people saw you at the cafe together on Saturday night. What did you decide to do, Danny? Dose the common milk so that nobody would know you just wanted to roofie your girlfriend?

Danny Wallace: That's not true.

Elle Greenaway: Sex was an issue in your relationship. She told me about it. She wasn't prepared to give it up, so you decided to take it.

Danny Wallace: No!

Elle Greenaway: She had bruises all over her body, Danny. You hit her!

Danny Wallace: Well, I didn't mean to. She was freaking out, punching me. She was on something. I was just trying to help her. I was just trying to hold her down.

Elle Greenaway: She was hitting you, but you still had sex with her?

Danny Wallace: No!

Hanover: Then, what, then?

Danny Wallace: It was after. After, we did it. We fell asleep. When she woke up, she was seeing things.

Elle Greenaway: What things?

Danny Wallace: Look, she was on something, and if it was acid or something, I've taken that. You give that to someone without telling them, it doesn't exactly set the mood.

———–

Derek Morgan: Kid is right about that.  If he wanted to slip her a date rape drug, why'd he give her LSD, too?

Spencer Reid: This boy seems too scared not to be telling us the truth.

Aaron Hotchner: So, Samantha was just the 8th victim and the boyfriend working in the cafe was just a coincidence.

Jason Gideon: But, even so, there may be an explanation why the two drugs: LSD to hallucinate and rohypnol to forget.

Derek Morgan: Forget what? What they were hallucinating?

Jason Gideon: No, how they got dosed.

Aaron Hotchner: Then, the unsub's covering his tracks. It's much too organized for a high school prank.

Derek Morgan: And there still hasn't been any kind of ransom demand.

Spencer Reid: Which rules out the extortionist.

Aaron Hotchner: Or any visible political group or cult in the area.

Derek Morgan: Which rules out the "true believer."

Spencer Reid: And leaves us with "the avenger."

Aaron Hotchner: Think we can give him a profile?

———–

Aaron Hotchner: We believe whoever poisoned these people was motivated by revenge.

Derek Morgan: The randomness of the victimology average people in an average-sized town... All points to a local resident.

Elle Greenaway: We know that people who poison for the purpose of revenge primarily act alone.

Aaron Hotchner: However, he may have manipulated someone close to him to assist him. The unsub usually disposes of these accomplices when they're of no further use to him.

Elle Greenaway: The unsub is like a cautious, deliberate, and highly-functioning male between the ages of 35 and 50.

Aaron Hotchner: He chose LSD for a reason. LSD is about altering perception. We think that this unsub is striking out because he feels that he's been... Inaccurately perceived by the community or a subset of it.

Derek Morgan: He feels that these attacks will effect and alter a reality that he is caught in, that he perceives to be unjust.

Aaron Hotchner: He's so self-centered he believes his victims will know the reason for the attack and who did it.

Spencer Reid: This individual was savvy enough to use rohypnol to obstruct our investigation, erasing the memories of the victims of how they were poisoned.

Hanover: Hold on.  If this guy believes that his victims know who he is, why is he covering his tracks?

Jason Gideon: Because these victims aren't his primary targets.

Aaron Hotchner: We know from precedent that this kind of offender, the "avenger," tests his weapon first. This attack was a test run.

Hanover: A test run for what?

Aaron Hotchner: We don't know yet. What we do know is that this is not the first time that he's aired his grievances. While it's not likely that he has a criminal record, it is possible that he has filed criminal charges or pursued a civil action against his perceived adversaries. And, now, to measure the results of his test, he's watching.

Jason Gideon: And he wants to see the results of his test. Once he has them, all those years of pent-up rage will be released in the form of a larger attack. The profile indicates a lot of people could die.

Jennifer Jareau: We have a leak.

———–

Suzanne Whang: That's right, Steve. Neighbours became aware something was wrong when a local Beechwood restaurant closed early. From inside sources, we learned that representatives of the CDC began testing food inside the restaurant.

Jason Gideon: If you're gonna report the story, name the restaurant.

Suzanne Whang: Unconfirmed, we were told that some of the food had been tainted with hallucinogenic drugs.

Jason Gideon: Name the restaurant.

Suzanne Whang: Until we do confirm all of this, we will not release the name of the restaurant. We'll only say it's a Beechwood area favourite. This is Suzanne Whang reporting live from Beechwood. Back to you, Steve.

Jennifer Jareau: They didn't name the restaurant.

Hanover: What is it?

Jason Gideon: Call the local hospital, make sure they know what's coming.

Hanover: Excuse me.

Aaron Hotchner: Where do your 911 calls get routed?

Hanover: There's a county phone bank. They contact first responders, the fire department.

Aaron Hotchner: Alert them, too. They're going to need additional personnel and any other backup you've got... Auxiliary cops. You're going to have to call them.

Hanover: But, why?

Aaron Hotchner: Because we're going to have a heck of a time just calming people down and we really don't need the confusion to interfere with our investigation.

Officer: Do you want me to start making those calls?

Hanover: No, no, no, no. Hey, hey! Everybody please shut up for a minute… Tell me what this is all about.

Jason Gideon: Panic.

———–

Officer: No, I can't comment. No, we don't know for sure why those people were poisoned.

Jennifer Jareau: Okay, great. Thank you… I just got off with the hospital. They're swamped with over 50 potential poisonings from local restaurants, but no hallucinations.

Derek Morgan: Another poisoning?

Aaron Hotchner: Or maybe more hysteria.

Hanover: We've looked into any civil or criminal complaints from employees, ex-employees... Suppliers, regulars at the cafe... Not one good lead.

Jason Gideon: There's got to be somebody connected to that cafe who pops as a suspect.

Elle Greenaway: Morgan, you wanna go back there, see if we can find another angle?

Derek Morgan: Can't hurt.

Aaron Hotchner: JJ, you and Reed go to the hospital, see if any of the poisonings seem legit.

Jennifer Jareau: Okay.

———–

Nurse: I really can't talk right now. We just got hammered.

Jennifer Jareau: Listen, most of these food poisonings are probably psychosomatic.

Nurse: What makes you think that?

Jennifer Jareau: A news broadcast just reported a local restaurant was poisoned. Now, it would be a huge coincidence if there was another poisoning right after that aired.

Nurse: So what do you want me to do?

Spencer Reid: Help us find out which cases, if any, are real.

Nurse: People are coming in with all kinds of complaints. But, there's at least one case that isn't psychosomatic… She's barely breathing.

Spencer Reid: Can you take us to the doctor that's treating that patient?

Jennifer Jareau: I'll call Hotch.

———–

Derek Morgan: If you're an "avenger," you choose your targets for a reason, right? Then, why haven't we found anyone connected to this cafe who fits the profile?

Elle Greenaway: Why hasn't the CDC found any trace of the drugs?

Derek Morgan: Wait a minute. What if it's not the profile that's wrong, but the target?

Elle Greenaway: Not this cafe.

Derek Morgan: Just because a bunch of victims came to eat here, doesn't necessarily mean they got poisoned here.

Elle Greenaway: Then where?

———–

Doctor: When the patient got here, she didn't remember anything about her day. And her speech was so slurred, I could barely understand her.

Spencer Reid: It sounds like rohypnol.  Did you test her?

Doctor: She was positive for rohypnol, negative for LSD. But, we're running more tests because rohypnol alone doesn't explain her symptoms. She presented with nausea, difficulty swallowing, laboured breathing. She was also having trouble moving her legs.

Jennifer Jareau: How long had she been sick?

Doctor: She didn't know. I could barely understand her when she first got her. Now, she can't speak at all.

Spencer Reid: Do you know any biological agents that have similar symptoms: ricin, seron gas?

Doctor: You think this is a biological attack?

Spencer Reid: We can't rule anything out.

Doctor: I'll order a few more tests.

———–

Elle Greenaway: Thanks, Nell.

Derek Morgan: No soda machines, hot dog stands, water fountains, or anything else. Get anything?

Elle Greenaway: Maybe. First New Jersey Federal, right across the street. One of the victims who I talked to said he went to that bank the day that he was dosed.

Derek Morgan: How do you get poisoned at a bank?

Elle Greenaway: I don't know. But, I'd like to take a look at the security tapes.

Derek Morgan: After you.

———–

Derek Morgan: Right there. Pause it, Elle.

Elle Greenaway: Jack Fisher.

Derek Morgan: About to have the worst night of his life.

Elle Greenaway: That's all of them. Every one of the victims who turned up at the ER three nights ago is on this tape. I'm gonna call Hanover.

Derek Morgan: Bring in the CDC guys, they can test the candies. I'll call Hotch.

———–

Aaron Hotchner: Morgan, it's Hotch. What's up?

———–

Jennifer Jareau: Reid, I think she's trying to say something… "The End"??

Spencer Reid: She may be incoherent from the lack of oxygen.

Jennifer Jareau: Doctor!

———–

Derek Morgan: No, Hotch, we're pretty sure it's the bank. All the victims were on their security tapes.

Aaron Hotchner: Then you should look for Lynn Dempsey, 45. Garcia's emailing a picture to your phone.

Derek Morgan: Hold on a second, I'm checking. Yeah, yeah. I got it.  Lynn Dempsey. Hold on. Elle… Elle's checking… Yeah, we got her Hotch. Checking the tape.

Elle Greenaway: Right there, that's her.

Derek Morgan: Play it again… Okay, not only was she here, but from one of these tapes... It looks like she was the one replacing the candies. Hotch, she could be the unsub.

Aaron Hotchner: We're working on that. I'll call you back.

———–

Jennifer Jareau: So, what are the chances that she's not poisoned, that maybe she just got some bad food?

Doctor: Highly improbable. Chances are basically nil.

Spencer Reid: What is the rate of survival?

Doctor: This dose, without anti-toxin... Zero.

Aaron Hotchner: What is it?

Doctor: Botulism.

Nurse: Doctor, her BP is dropping rapidly.

Doctor: It's sepsis. Give another amp of epi.

Nurse: She's going into v-fib.

Doctor: She's crashing! Get the paddles.

Nurse: Charging to 200.

Doctor: Clear

Nurse: Nothing. Charging to 300.

Doctor: Clear

Nurse: Still nothing.

Spencer Reid: The test run is over.

Doctor: Page a Code Blue.

Nurse: Yes, Doctor, right away. Starting CPR.

———–

Brian Devons: Just be careful the fresh air doesn't kill you, Fred.

Fred: Ha ha.

Brian Devons: See you in a few days, Janice. Don't stay late, the kids need you.

Janice: Thank you, Mr. Devons. Have fun.

———–

Jason Gideon: Lynn Dempsey was an executive assistant. She has no expertise with chemicals. She doesn't fit the profile of the unsub.

Derek Morgan: But the CDC found both LSD and rohypnol in the candy she was replacing at the bank.

Aaron Hotchner: She must have been an accomplice and when the unsub finished using her to further his attack, he killed her with botulism.

Jason Gideon: So, what does that tell us about the unsub?

Spencer Reid: He's far more sophisticated than we realized.

Elle Greenaway: Why is that?

Spencer Reid: The botulism toxin is the deadliest substance known to man. It blocks acetylcholine receptors, paralyzing its victims until, basically, choking you to death. Without a, uh, antitoxin, a lethal dose will kill you in 36 hours.

Elle Greenaway: How many people have access to this stuff?

Spencer Reid: In New Jersey, quite a few. It's the pharmaceutical and chemical capital of the US. So, that the toxin can be ordered in the form of botox through any chemical or biological lab or botox clinic. It has to be purified, but any chemist or lab assistant has that capability.

Elle Greenaway: So, we're looking for chemists and sophisticated lab assistants?

Spencer Reid: Basically.

Derek Morgan: Okay, wait a minute. If the unsub is a chemist with access to the toxin, what'd he need Dempsey for?

Jason Gideon: Well, we don't know yet. But, she worked for a, she worked for a company, called, uh... Hithcock Pharmaceuticals. I think there's a good chance the unsub worked there, too.

Aaron Hotchner: Well, let's start with people who fit the profile who've had a recent stressor.

Derek Morgan: Like, anybody fired from Hichcock in the past 6 months.

———–

Penelope Garcia: Hichcock's a giant company, Sugar Shack, there were over a 100 people fired just this past year.

Derek Morgan: And so far, none of them fit the profile?

Penelope Garcia: No. But, I do have 30 names of people who were downsized and shunted off to other lame companies with a cut in pay and benefits.

Derek Morgan: All right, send us the names. We'll cross-reference them with civil and criminal complaints filed with local PD. But, I want you to keep digging, and while you're at it, look for any connection to the First New Jersey Federal Bank.

Penelope Garcia: I'm on it, Angel.

———–

Aaron Hotchner: Our guys acting like a workplace mass murderer. He'd stay close, seething, and he'd plan his revenge.

Elle Greenaway: Well, if he is a workplace killer, what else does that tell us about him?

Aaron Hotchner: Well, for one, they don't give themselves up. He's lost his empathy, his moral compass. He's capable of anything.

Elle Greenaway: All those innocent people at the bank.

Jason Gideon: They meant nothing to him. He'll take out anybody to forward his cause.

Elle Greenaway: Like Dempsey.

Jason Gideon: Like Dempsey, and eventually, even himself... Until he finishes taking out his primary targets.

Derek Morgan: We have no idea where he's going to strike next. For all we know, he could poison the local reservoir.

Aaron Hotchner: Well, the local cops haven't gotten any leads out of Dempsey. Why don't you go to Hichcock and see if you have any luck.

Elle Greenaway: Yeah.

———–

Janice: Miss Dempsey's boss is away for the week. I just can't believe this happened to her.

Elle Greenaway: Is there anyone you can think of who would want to hurt Miss Dempsey? I mean, anyone here at work?

Janice: She wasn't the type to inspire hatred. She was pretty quiet, actually.

Elle Greenaway: Would you say that she was awkward? You know, like, socially?

Janice: A little, yeah. She made a lot of jokes about herself. You know, self-deprecating jokes. I always thought she'd do a lot better dating if she didn't.

Elle Greenaway: So, she was single, as far as you knew.

Janice: I couldn't say one way or the other. I mean, she never really talked to me about that kind of thing.

Elle Greenaway: Is there anything about her behaviour that was unusual lately, um, anything that you noticed that was out of her normal routine?

Janice: Just that she was very busy this last week. There's a big corporate retreat coming up that she was helping her boss put together. I'm sorry I can't be of any more help.

Elle Greenaway: That's all right. I'm going to go take a look through her things, if that's okay.

Janice: The police already went through her desk, but feel free.

Elle Greenaway: Thanks.

———–

Derek Morgan: Gideon, some of these lay-offs were brutal. This one chemical engineer, he'd been at Hichcock 19 years when he was downsized.

Jason Gideon: Yeah, that could certainly inspire homicidal rage, huh?

Derek Morgan: The guy was in his late forties, head of his department. Definitely had a generous severance package.

Jason Gideon: A lot of these guys don't have enough pension. They may not be happy about it, but I don't see them killing anyone.

Derek Morgan: It's Garcia. Talk to me, Hot Stuff.

Penelope Garcia: Get this, Cochise. I found a chemist who works at a company that was bought by Hichcock called Palmay Cosmetics. Now, here's the thing. Lynn Dempsey applied for a loan at New Jersey Federal Bank around the same time this chemist applied for a patent on this anti-aging, breakthrough technology thing called PCO99.

Derek Morgan: So, maybe he applied for a loan in her name to make his product?

Penelope Garcia: That's what I thought, but both the loan and the patent were rejected because Hichcock had already applied for the patent and the patent deal had gone through, drumroll please... New Jersey Federal Bank. I'm tracking his cell phone and it won't be long before I have his location.

———–

Derek Morgan: Don't move.

———–

Aaron Hotchner: He let us take him. He didn't kill himself. Doesn't fit the profile of a workplace killer.

Jason Gideon: Sometimes you miss the mark. Let's be glad we did. He's our best chance at stopping the next attack.

Hanover: Well, his lab had traces of botulin toxin, but no clues as to what he's up to next.

Aaron Hotchner: Our only chance is to make him tell us.

Hanover: You think he will.

Spencer Reid: Once caught, these types usually do. They want the whole world to know about their brilliant plan to destroy their enemies.

Jason Gideon: In case he doesn't give it up, let's play every angle. We need to re-examine everything we know about this guy.

Spencer Reid: I'll check witness reports, forensic evidence, anything that might be a clue to this guy's plan.

Jason Gideon: A lot of lives could be at stake.

———–

Aaron Hotchner: You were romantically involved with Lynn Dempsey, Mr. Hill?

Edward Hill: Is that what she said?

Aaron Hotchner: That's what her sister said. What happened to her?

Edward Hill: The fact is, Lynn was already dead… That company killed her years ago.

Aaron Hotchner: They kill you, too?

Edward Hill: Well, they might as well have. They took everything from me. Fruits of my labour, best years of my life. They took my family, and when there was nothing left to take, they took two-thirds of my salary and my health insurance.

Aaron Hotchner: You have the opportunity to treat people with the mercy that they never showed you.

Edward Hill: I can't even begin to tell you how little that means to me.

Aaron Hotchner: What would it mean to your children?

Jason Gideon: Listen, you worked hard... Played by the rules your whole life. You don't wanna go out like this. If you do, you stoop to their level. There are things we can do for you. There's ways to help you if you'll let us.

Edward Hill: What can you do for me?

Aaron Hotchner: We're FBI. We have influence with Justice. If you have a legitimate claim, and I believe you do, we can see to it you get fair compensation and credit. And that's all you wanted, right? A fair deal.

Edward Hill: That's all I ever wanted.

Jason Gideon: Of course. You don't think the company knows they screwed you? You don't think everything they do, every move they make, isn't designed to screw people like you?

Edward Hill: You could really get me those things?

Aaron Hotchner: Yeah. This is my ABA card. I'm a lawyer and I'm offering to take your case. And if you accept, I have to do what you say. This whole thing is being videotaped, I can't lie about that.

Edward Hill: I would like my sons to know that their dad created something... I created something good.

Jason Gideon: Ed, tell us. What did you do?

Edward Hill: There's a party this afternoon in the Executive building… All departments get together… There's a punch bowl.

———–

Elle Greenaway: Stop! Don't drink that!

Derek Morgan: Put it down! Put it down right now. Ladies and gentlemen, listen up. We are FBI… I need everybody to remain calm, but there could be some contaminated food here that could make you sick.

Elle Greenaway: Please put down whatever it is that you're eating and drinking, and please just take it easy. We're going to be coming around and asking you some questions.

Janice: Is everyone going to be okay?

Elle Greenaway: Yes.

Jennifer Jareau: Okay, the CDC is here with three dozen doses of anti-toxin. We're going to make sure everyone gets some just in case. Ah, whoever may have gotten sick, we should have caught it in time.

———–

Jennifer Jareau: The punch tested positive for botulism toxin. About a dozen party-goers reported symptoms, but they've all been given the anti-toxin.

Aaron Hotchner: Thanks, JJ. I'll call you back.

Jennifer Jareau: Bye.

———–

Aaron Hotchner: What is it?

Jason Gideon: You're right. It doesn't make sense. Why didn't Hill take his own life when we had him surrounded?

Spencer Reid: Guys, I think we have a problem. I've been looking over the victim reports. One of the victims that was originally dosed was severely diabetic.

Aaron Hotchner: And?

Spencer Reid: He wouldn't have taken candy from the candy bowl at the bank. All of the victims were there. We know that, but how were they poisoned? I started looking at the, ah, security footage. We know Lynn Dempsey replaced some candy from the bowl. Look how close that jar is to the deposit envelopes. Now, watch this... See that? Her hand is directly in the stack of envelopes.

Aaron Hotchner: So, you think the envelopes were poisoned as well as the candy?

Spencer Reid: As Lynn Dempsey was dying, she kept saying something like "the end." "The end." I think that what she was saying was "the envelopes." I mean, what was Hill actually testing? The rohypnol? The LSD?

Jason Gideon: The delivery system.

Spencer Reid: Exactly. Botulinin toxin and LSD are the only two substances in the world toxic enough to be effective in doses as small as thousandths of a gram. Small enough to fit on the glue strip of an envelope.

Aaron Hotchner: But, the CDC didn't find any evidence of poison on the envelopes.

Spencer Reid: They wouldn't have.  The envelopes were destroyed after the cheques were deposited and processed.

Aaron Hotchner: So, like the rohypnol, Hill was using the candy to throw us off. To cover his tracks. To distract us from the fact that he was testing the envelopes.

Spencer Reid: What I can't figure out if why would he poison the envelopes to test the punch?

Aaron Hotchner: Because the punch is a decoy just like the candy.

Jason Gideon: He's not finished.

Aaron Hotchner: Gideon!

———–

Aaron Hotchner: Get him!

Jason Gideon: Get his head back!

Aaron Hotchner: He's dead.

Jason Gideon: He killed himself before we even got to him.

Aaron Hotchner: Yeah?

Derek Morgan: Hotch, it's Morgan. Listen, I'm looking at these victims from Hichcock, and this doesn't add up. All of these people are lower-level, regular office workers. This guy was trying to get back at the people who screwed him. None of them are here.

Aaron Hotchner: What do you mean? Where are they?

Derek Morgan: The entire upper management staff is away on a corporate retreat.

Aaron Hotchner: The office manager mentioned to Elle that Dempsey was organizing a retreat.

Derek Morgan: So, then Hill wasn't using Dempsey for access to the office party.

Aaron Hotchner: No, he used her for access to the retreat. Where are the executives?  Can they be reached?

Derek Morgan: No. No, not until tomorrow. They're out in the middle of the woods somewhere. It's one of those "no cell phones allowed" types of things.

Aaron Hotchner: And what are they doing there?

Derek Morgan: You know, bonding exercises, playing games, that kind of stuff.

Aaron Hotchner: What kind of games?

———–

Brian Devons: When voting, you wanna think about the qualities you admire most, so tomorrow we tally the votes to find out who our new team leader is. Now, we don't want a repeat of last year's fiasco, so this year, I brought along some envelopes.

———–

Spencer Reid: The victims need to ingest the anti-toxin within four hours of the time they were poisoned.

———–

Brian Devons: And make sure you seal the envelope so there's no cheating. Fred!

Bob: Are we gonna go fishing today?

Brian Devons: Shut up and lick it, Bob.

———–

Jason Gideon: Gideon to Air One, anything? Anything?

Air One: Negative, we checked the first three campsites. Nothing.

Jason Gideon: How about the Parks Service?

Air One: A couple of families on holiday. None saw the target. Wait a minute, I'm getting a radio from the staties. They found something near the access road and trail end 6. EMTs are en route.

———–

Officer: These guys are in bad shape and getting worse by the minute.

Aaron Hotchner: Who's the sickest?

Officer: That one over there.

Jason Gideon: Medic!

Officer: Been having trouble breathing. I think.

Spencer Reid: What time did he lick the envelopes?

Officer: They said around 12:30.

———–

Jason Gideon: Federal Agent. You're going to be fine. This is gonna make you feel 100%. Relax and breathe… You're gonna be fine.

Brian Devons: Thank you.

———–

Jason Gideon: Confucius warned us: "Before you embark on a journey of revenge, dig two graves."

———–

Aaron Hotchner: You ought to sleep.

Jennifer Jareau: Just finishing my report.

Aaron Hotchner: Are you Okay?

Jennifer Jareau: There's always another file. This next one's pretty bad.

Aaron Hotchner: Yeah.

Jennifer Jareau: Of all the departments, why'd you choose the BAU?

Aaron Hotchner: You know, I had prosecuted dozens of murder cases and by the time they had reached my desk, I had always felt like it was too late. And I wanted to, yeah, stop them before they got to my desk… That doesn't really answer your question.

Jennifer Jareau: No, it doesn't.

Aaron Hotchner: I guess I'm still trying to figure it out.

Jennifer Jareau: I should try and get some sleep.
