Ancien mentor de Jason, Max Ryan, profiler à la retraite, vient de sortir un livre sur un tueur en série qu'il n'a jamais réussi à arrêter.

Max Ryan: The end of his two year killing spree seven women were dead. He made a name for himself, literally. He sent out written communication identifying himself as the "Keystone Killer". These letters, all of which were accompanied by word search puzzle were a part of his game, like "The Son of Sam" he taunted the police, he fuelled the media's fascination with him. As you'll see in the book he left specific crime scene details in the word puzzles. And then 18 years ago he just stopped killing. Now one of the Philadelphia PD's theories was that he was in jail with an unrelated charge. But this is a man who craves attention. He could not remain a faceless prisoner for so long. Another theory was that he simply moved away. And he continued killing in another city or another country. The FBI's VI-CAP program tracks murders and murderers all around the world. They turned up nothing… This intricate knot was part of his signature. The signature we have never seen repeated. Another theory was that he had died, which was the only explanation for why a compulsive psychopath would stop killing… But I never believed he was a psychopath who had to do this… I believe he is a narcissistic sociopath who chooses to… This is his last victim, Amy Jennings. She was 23. Her infant son was in the next room when she was killed… So uh! So even if he thinks he's finished! He still has a debt to pay.


Man: Thank you, Mr. Ryan.

Max Ryan: Thank you, sir.

Man: Thank you.

Jason Gideon: You looked comfortable up there. Why don't you come back to the BAU for a guest lecture?

Max Ryan: I'm retired. Remember?

Jason Gideon: Hell of a way to relax. 323 pages on the one that got away.

Max Ryan: He hasn't gotten away. And you didn't count that 8 page prologue.

Jason Gideon: What happened to Florida? 36 holes a day.

Max Ryan: Florida's too humid… Anyway I missed the seasons, so I'm in Philadelphia now.

Jason Gideon: You're in Philadelphia for the seasons?

Max Ryan: You think I'm! what, dysfunctional? Obsessed?

Jason Gideon: You want to eat where the killer eats? Sleep where he sleeps.

Max Ryan: Maybe I'm addicted to Pat's Stakes. Maybe I'm holding out hope that the eagles will turn it around next season.

Jason Gideon: Remember weapons of mass destruction?

Max Ryan: What are you saying? You think I'm chasing a ghost?

Jason Gideon: I'm saying sometimes we get it wrong. Ever consider that?

Max Ryan: I've considered everything… So how are things at BAU? Anything changed since I left?

Jason Gideon: Everything changes. Everything stays the same. You know how it is.

Max Ryan: Miss me?

Jason Gideon: No.

Max Ryan: Just here to buy a book then, huh?

Jason Gideon: What can I say? Profilers, they fascinate me.

Security guard: Sorry to interrupt, but this is for you.

Max Ryan: Thanks.

Security guard: Sure.

Jason Gideon: Fan-mail!

Max Ryan: Fan-mail, how do you like that? Wait a minute. Hey! Who gave this to you?

Security guard: I don't know! A guy in a blue jacket.

Max Ryan: Hey, Hey! Wait!

Security guard: That's not the guy! It's not the guy!

Man: What's going on?

Security guard: There's some sort of misunderstanding.

Jason Gideon: Who in his mind has not probed the dark water? We're like two volumes of the same book, Max. Why don't we add a few more chapters? Is this from him, the Keystone Killer?

Max Ryan: The son of a bitch was right here. You still think I'm after a ghost? Lock this place down. No one leaves until I talk to them.


Jason Gideon: Norman McClain wrote "It is those we live with and love and should know who loot us".


Derek Morgan: So they've been here all night?

Aaron Hotchner: Apparently.

Elle Greenaway: Where else would any of us be on a Saturday night? It's not like we have lives or anything.

Derek Morgan: Speak for yourself.

Spencer Reid: Guys, we are about to meet Max Ryan, the guy responsible for catching the Boise child killer. Have you ever talked to him before?

Aaron Hotchner: He's pretty intense, brusque. Not much of a bedside manner.

Elle Greenaway: Sound like anyone else we know?

Derek Morgan: I heard he was forced into early retirement.

Aaron Hotchner: No, he chose to retire.

Spencer Reid: He's written a new book on the Keystone Killer case.

Aaron Hotchner: He moved to Philadelphia to be closer to the crime scenes.

Elle Greenaway: That's retirement?

Derek Morgan: B.A.U. style.


Spencer Reid: "Who in his mind has not probed the black water"? John Steinbeck, East of Eden.

Jason Gideon: Story of good and evil, love and hate.

Max Ryan: There's been some new activity on the Keystone Killer case.

Elle Greenaway: New?

Jason Gideon: He was in Max's lecture last night.

Derek Morgan: What? He got away?

Max Ryan: Would we have woken you up if we caught him?

Jason Gideon: He handed this letter to the security guard.

Max Ryan: And he included two drivers' licenses with it.

Jason Gideon: One is from his last victim.

Max Ryan: Last known victim.

Jason Gideon: Amy Jennings, strangled in 1987… Do you see something?

Spencer Reid: Ya, what is the significance of black bra and grey wool socks?

Max Ryan: That's what Amy Jennings was wearing when we found her.

Derek Morgan: That's a lot of detail to remember for 20 years. Green River killer couldn't remember where the bodies were buried much less what they were wearing.

Aaron Hotchner: Well, some unsubs take pictures and print them themselves so they can manipulate the scene, bring it to life. That would explain the level of detail.

Spencer Reid: Does no fight in the rear window have anything to do with the Jennings case?

Max Ryan: No. He entered in through the front door. There's ample evidence that Amy fought him very hard. Now he's referring to a new victim there.

Elle Greenaway: The second driver's license.

Jason Gideon: Carla Bromwell.

Spencer Reid: Yeah, there is a C. Bromwell here in the puzzle.

Philly PD went to the address on the license a little while ago.

Jason Gideon: Found her suffocated with a plastic bag.

Derek Morgan: Suffocated? His previous victims were strangled. His MO's different.

Elle Greenaway: He hasn't been killing all along, has he?

Aaron Hotchner: It would have been difficult to tie these new murders to the Keystone Killer what with the change of the methodology and the time that's elapsed between kills.

Max Ryan: If he'd been active, I would have known.

Spencer Reid: It's not entirely impossible for an unsub to switch he's M.O. The Zodiac Killer went from stabbing people to shooting them.

Max Ryan: Yes, but he wanted to take the credit. This bastard didn't do anything in secret.

Jennifer Jareau: I'd say good morning but, it's still dark outside.

Derek Morgan: Who's this?

Jennifer Jareau: Carla Bromwell. Uh! Gideon, can you put it on the news?

Journalist: The Philadelphia police were notified late last night of a letter that was hand delivered to this news station. Apparently it was written by the infamous Keystone Killer, who's wanted in connection with the murders of 7 women back in the late 1980's. He also included a photograph of a woman. She appears to be dead in the photo, suffocated with a plastic bag… Now, subsequently police discovered a body in the Overbrook area. But they are not confirming that it's the woman in this picture.

Aaron Hotchner: He works fast.

Jason Gideon: It's an understatement, isn't it?

Aaron Hotchner: Meet you on the plane in 30 minutes.

Max Ryan: I'm coming with you… I'm not asking, Jason.


Penelope Garcia: Philly PD confirmed that Carla Bromwell's been dead less than 12 hours. She was 47.

Aaron Hotchner: Victims are getting older.

Derek Morgan: That is unusual.

Elle Greenaway: Victimology rarely changes.

Penelope Garcia: Her hands and feet were bound with flex-cuffs.

Max Ryan: Flex-cuffs? No ropes?

Penelope Garcia: That's what they said. They're waiting at the crime scene for you.

Derek Morgan: Thank you, sweetheart.

Penelope Garcia: If you need me.

Aaron Hotchner: So older victims and a different mode of binding and killing.

Derek Morgan: Maybe the note just means we have a copycat on our hands.

Max Ryan: The copycat who just happens to have Amy Jennings driver's license? No! No, it's the Keystone Killer.

Derek Morgan: How are we supposed to work with him? Gideon, he is not even an active agent.

Jason Gideon: He's here because he knows this case better than any of us. We're leading the investigation, he's only consulting.

Derek Morgan: Anyone tell him that?


Charles Santangelo: FBI? Detective Charles Santangelo, Philly PD.

Jason Gideon: Agents Gideon, Greenway.

Charles Santangelo: You actually think the Keystone Killer did this?

Max Ryan: Yes, we do.

Charles Santangelo: Agent Ryan.

Max Ryan: Detective.

Charles Santangelo: So I guessed you'd show up sooner or later.

Jason Gideon: He's consulting with us.

Elle Greenaway: CSI's done processing the body?

Charles Santangelo: Yeah, we'll get out of your way.

Max Ryan: Thanks. This is his 8th victim.

Elle Greenaway: There is no bruising on the wrists, ankles or neck. Just a good size blunt force head wound.

Max Ryan: Yeah, probably a surprise attack.

Elle Greenaway: Well, the puzzle said no fight.

Max Ryan: I know what the puzzle said.

Jason Gideon: Head wound is extensive. Level of violence is escalating.

Max Ryan: Yup.

Elle Greenaway: This bedroom is in front of the house. And a puzzle mentioned a rear window, maybe he left a print.

Max Ryan: No way.

Elle Greenaway: Well I think I'm going to check it out anyway.

Max Ryan: You do what you want to do but believe me, you're wasting your time.

Jason Gideon: Elle's good at this, Max.

Max Ryan: Did I say she wasn't? I haven't had a feeling like this around a dead body in 18 years.

Jason Gideon: I remember what you said to me on my first day. Don't lose your objectivity. This isn't personal.

Max Ryan: Yeah… Well, maybe not for you.


Jennifer Jareau: We are aware of the media reports. However, we cannot confirm at this time.

Journalist 1: Is it the Keystone Killer?

Jennifer Jareau: The FBI will be making a formal statement later on today.

Journalist 2: We received more information from the murderer than the police. What's going on?

Journalist 1: We have the right to the truth.

Jennifer Jareau: The Philadelphia police have to finish investigating this crime scene before we can make a statement. All of your questions will be answered at that time, so please be patient. That's all I can say.

Journalist 2: Ma'am, when can we expect that statement today? Do you know anything about motive?


Spencer Reid: What do you think of Ryan?

Aaron Hotchner: He hasn't changed much.

Spencer Reid: I think we can learn a lot from him.

Aaron Hotchner: What could you possibly learn that you don't already know?

Spencer Reid: Hotch, repetitive thinking is the death nail for the brain. For complete brain usage diverse stimulation is the key… Look at this.

Aaron Hotchner: Let's go show this to everyone.


Aaron Hotchner: Found another note.

Max Ryan: Let me see that… In order for the light to shine so brightly the darkness must be present.

Jason Gideon: He's quoting sir Francis Bacon now.

Max Ryan: I used this specific quote on…

Spencer Reid: On your book on page 184… I read it on the plane.

Max Ryan: And you remember the page number of the quote?

Derek Morgan: Don't ask.

Aaron Hotchner: He says to expect another gift in 2 days.

Elle Greenaway: A gift?

Jason Gideon: Calls his victims gifts.

Elle Greenaway: Gifts for whom?

Max Ryan: For me.


Aaron Hotchner: A lot of things have changed in 20 years including the age of the Keystone Killer's victims.

Charles Santangelo: He's older, his victims are older. Makes sense to me.

Aaron Hotchner: Most unsubs have specific fantasies. This is as if there killing the same person over and over again. This man clearly had a preference for young brunettes, and now he's switched to older women.

Charles Santangelo: Well, what does that mean?

Spencer Reid: Ted Bundy only killed women that looked like his fiancee. But then, he devolved and brutally attacked a house full of sorority sisters that looked nothing like his previous victims. He went off script… His final victim was a 12 year old girl. When the police found the van that he used to kill her, the amount of blood revealed that he had lost complete control. It was that devolution that eventually led to his capture.

Jason Gideon: He could be devolving into frenzy.

Charles Santangelo: So you mean he's about to mess up.

Derek Morgan: Keystone Killer's devolution is only a theory. We need to be prepared for anything.

Aaron Hotchner: And if he is in a frenzy, there's no telling how quickly he'll fall apart.

Jason Gideon: Or how many more victims he'll take with him.

Aaron Hotchner: So, we're going to go over anything we know, old and new, and hopefully we find him before we find another body.

Jason Gideon: We'll start with agent Ryan's original profile. Max, you want to present it?

Max Ryan: No.

Aaron Hotchner: We're looking for a white male in his late 40's. The controlled crime scenes, the meticulousness and the collection of trophies suggest a possible military background…


Max Ryan: I thought you were going to present the profile.

Jason Gideon: Team can handle it.

Max Ryan: The team. We used to work solo when this all started.

Jason Gideon: Well, we were wrong.

Max Ryan: You don't worry about too many cooks?

Jason Gideon: Nope.

Max Ryan: He used a quote, Jason. He used a quote from my book.

Jason Gideon: So? Maybe it's a coincidence.

Max Ryan: We've both been doing this too long to believe in that.


Aaron Hotchner: All right, let's focus on the differences in the crimes. What's he doing that's new?

Elle Greenaway: Well, his latest victim was hit in the head. That's new.

Derek Morgan: In the word puzzle he said she didn't fight. So, why hit her? Scare her? Show her he's in charge?

Aaron Hotchner: Well, he never did that before.

Elle Greenaway: And a blow that hard wouldn't scare her, probably just…

Derek Morgan: Probably just knock her unconscious.

Aaron Hotchner: In order to control her?

Jason Gideon: Why switch from ropes to flex-cuffs? The intricate knot was a part of his signature.

Derek Morgan: Flex-cuffs are easier. Probably saved him time.

Jason Gideon: No, no, no, there's more than that. The rope was meticulously tied, it was intimate, completely unnecessary.

Elle Greenaway: And he abandoned the rope and the use of his bare hands which makes his kills less personal and less controlling.

Derek Morgan: Okay. Seriously, guys, let's just abandon all this. Let's just treat him like he's a new offender.

Jason Gideon: He isn't.

Spencer Reid: Guys, I have a name.

Elle Greenaway: Nibrahs. That's a name? From what country?

Spencer Reid: It's backwards. S. Harbin. And there was a Scott Harbin on Ryan's original suspect list.

Max Ryan: It's not Scott Harbin. Harbin went to jail in 1988 for stabbing a guy while he was trying to escape during a home invasion. The guy later died. Harbin didn't even know there was anyone at home at the time he broke in.

Derek Morgan: How long did he get?

Max Ryan: 30 years.

Jason Gideon: So it makes him a little more than a half way done.

Aaron Hotchner: Unless he's been paroled.

Max Ryan: No. No, it's too easy. I interviewed Harbin, twice. He's a pervert. He's a small time burglar with a fetish for lingerie. I mean he's a creep. But he is not the Keystone Killer. Believe me our guy has not been in jail for all these years.

Derek Morgan: All right, I'm going to call Garcia. See what she can dig up on this guy.

Max Ryan: He's not the guy.

Aaron Hotchner: Jason, what are we doing here?

Jason Gideon: What do you mean?

Aaron Hotchner: Well, is Ryan interested in catching the Keystone Killer, or just proving he's right?


Penelope Garcia: Scott Harbin was paroled 3 months ago.

Derek Morgan: Oh yeah? To Philly?

Penelope Garcia: Yeah… Looks like it. And hey, guess what. Bad boy missed his last appointment with his parole officer.

Derek Morgan: Well, that right there makes him a wanted man, doesn't it?

Penelope Garcia: Uh-huh uh-huh. And I have an address on him.

Derek Morgan: You are amazing.

Penelope Garcia: You have no idea.


Charles Santangelo: FBI SWAT!

Elle Greenaway: Stop! I said stop!

Scott Harbin: Okay, okay. All right, all right.

Elle Greenaway: Are you Scott Harbin?

Scott Harbin: What?

Elle Greenaway: Scott Harbin!

Max Ryan: Yeah, that's Scott Harbin.

Scott Harbin: Hey! Come on. Ryan. You got old.

Max Ryan: Haven't we all?

Jason Gideon: Missed an appointment, Scott.

Scott Harbin: Oh, they send the FBI now for parole violations?

Elle Greenaway: Yeah, we were in the neighbourhood.

Scott Harbin: Excuse me, fellas.


Aaron Hotchner: Thanks.

Derek Morgan: Hotch.

Aaron Hotchner: Yeah?

Derek Morgan: Look at that. Socks 3 inches, underwear 6 inches. They teach you that at basic training.

Aaron Hotchner: Ryan thought he might have a military background… Hey, Morgan. What's the chance he labels his secrets?


Jason Gideon: What do you think?

Max Ryan: I don't know… He doesn't seem to be a guy who needs to be in control.

Jason Gideon: He's definitely obsessive. Everything has its place. Probably comes from years of solitude, huh?

Elle Greenaway: Misdirect upbringing. And this is a guy who likes to be alone… Sharing a jail must have been a nightmare.

Scott Harbin: Are you finished?

Elle Greenaway: Did I make you angry? Did I upset you? What? You're going to hurt me?

Scott Harbin: No, I'm not stupid.

Elle Greenaway: No, you… You wouldn't hurt me here. You'd wait, sneak up behind me and hit me over the head, just when I'm not looking… What's the matter, Scotty? Can't deal with woman who's not afraid of you?


Aaron Hotchner: Hey, Morgan!

Derek Morgan: Yo.

Aaron Hotchner: Think he makes his own movies?

Derek Morgan: Well, if he's a control freak, or Ryan thinks he is, why wouldn't he?

Aaron Hotchner: Where are the tapes?


Jason Gideon: Are you okay?

Elle Greenaway: What do you mean?

Jason Gideon: Got a little hot.

Elle Greenaway: Did I say anything that wasn't true?

Jason Gideon: Nope.

Elle Greenaway: Well, then I guess I'm fine.


Aaron Hotchner: Hear that?

Derek Morgan: Yeah… I got it, I got it.

Aaron Hotchner: Oh man. Give me a hand.

Derek Morgan: What?

Aaron Hotchner: Give me a hand.

Derek Morgan: Hey! A little help!

Victim: No!

Aaron Hotchner: It's okay. It's okay!

Victim: No! No! No!

Aaron Hotchner: We're the FBI.

Derek Morgan: Get an ambulance! Right now! Move!

Charles Santangelo: I'm on it. Call the EMT.


Man: Roger that.

Aaron Hotchner: Yeah, here he comes bringing him out. I'll call you back.

Max Ryan: Scott Harbin.

Jason Gideon: Single obsessive military background. Fits your profile.

Max Ryan: But he keeps his victim in his house? He's that far off script?

Derek Morgan: Ryan… It's got your name on it.

Max Ryan: Isn't Scott Harbin an inelegant creature? A monster. There is no light with him. No balance. He is pure evil. Balance is what gives one mercy. You'll be reminded of my brand of mercy tomorrow, Max.

Derek Morgan: What does that mean?

Jason Gideon: Scott Harbin's a predator just not the one we were looking for. Cordon off the area at least six block radius. Someone must have seen this guy.


Derek Morgan: Well, that's got to be a first. A killer actually leading us to another killer.

Jason Gideon: Come on. We all know they make the best profilers. They admire each other's work.

Elle Greenaway: Yeah, but usually from the far.

Aaron Hotchner: At least we got Harbin off the street. All right, let's review. What do we know about the Keystone Killer?

Elle Greenaway: Well, we know that he's not dead or in jail.

Jason Gideon: Enjoys taunting the game.

Derek Morgan: Yeah, he's in complete control.

Spencer Reid: He strangled 7 women in the 1980's, stopped for 18 years, and then began again suffocating them. 10% of all violent crimes are caused by strangulation, it only takes 11 pounds of pressure to fully incapacitate your victim and if you hang on for at least 50 seconds, they will never recover.

Aaron Hotchner: When you suffocate someone you actually have less control over their death. It's actually more passive because the killer doesn't feel the life leaving the body.

Elle Greenaway: He's changed almost everything that he does.

Jason Gideon: Why, why, why, why? What?! I mean, what's he getting out of this new M.O.? Where's his payoff? You got Carla Bromwell, she sustains a significant head injury. Blitz attacks suggests disorganization, no self-confidence. This is a guy who walks into 7 victims homes prior to this. There was no forced entry at any of the scenes. Where's the loss of confidence?

Max Ryan: He would never change the way he kills by choice.

Jason Gideon: What?

Max Ryan: We've been operating under the assumption that he purposely changed his M.O.

Jason Gideon: You're saying he changed because he had to change?

Derek Morgan: He knocked her unconscious. And it wasn't to scare.

Elle Greenaway: Because he couldn't control her physically while she was awake.

Max Ryan: He could be incapacitated.

Jason Gideon: At least partially.

Max Ryan: Maybe an injury.

Aaron Hotchner: Or a stroke.

Jason Gideon: Either way you're gonna have to have medical records. Agreed?

Derek Morgan: Yes, so what are we talking about? This had to have happened after the middle of 1988 in Philadelphia?

Jason Gideon: Somebody who fits the rest of the profile.

Spencer Reid: It's a lot of hospital records.

Jason Gideon: Call our girl Friday.


Jennifer Jareau: We're releasing a profile of the man we're looking for. We're hoping that someone out there seen this will recognize some of the elements. He is most likely a white male in his late 40's with a military background and well educated. He has a need for power and control, so he probably has a job with some type of authority.

Journalist 3: You've just described half of the men living in Philadelphia. How does that help us?

Jennifer Jareau: If you'd let me finish…

Journalist 2: Killer wrote in his last letter that he'd strike again within 2 days. How close are you to an arrest?

Jennifer Jareau: I'm not at liberty to discuss the progress of this on-going investigation.

Philip Bromwell: My name is Philip Bromwell. My sister Carla was murdered yesterday, by a man you people should have stopped 18 years ago. Are you at liberty to explain how I'm supposed to tell our mother about this?

Jennifer Jareau: I'm very sorry for your loss, Mr. Bromwell. Please know that we do have the very best team assembled to handle this.

Journalist 3: Isn't special agent Ryan working with the FBI again? He was unable to solve the murder before. What makes you think he's capable now?

Jennifer Jareau: Agent Ryan was one of a number of men working on this case. There is no blame to be put on any one man or division.


Max Ryan: I'd hate to be standing out there in front of those jackals.

Elle Greenaway: Well, JJ, she can hold her own.

Max Ryan: You're all better at the press thing than we ever were.

Elle Greenaway: Well, we have a lot more of it to deal with now.

Max Ryan: They need someone to blame… I guess it's me.

Elle Greenaway: Are you okay with that?

Max Ryan: No, the fact is that I haven't been able to solve the case. So I'm an easy target. But if I… If we do close it, that will all go away.

Elle Greenaway: And you think you'll be able to... You know, just walk away?

Max Ryan: I won't have any choice.

Elle Greenaway: But don't you want to? I mean! Don't you get to a certain point where you want to relax, maybe spend sometime with your family?

Max Ryan: Family? I lost that a long time ago. I haven't even seen them in years… As far as relaxing, the B.A.U doesn't employ too many agents with a relaxing kind of mentality. Do they? Well, we've got some records to go through.


Aaron Hotchner: Something debilitating enough to lose strength permanently, I'm still thinking stroke.

Derek Morgan: You know Ryan's profile puts the unsub in his late 20's. Isn't that too young for a massive stroke?

Spencer Reid: Technically you're never too young for a stroke. 80% of strokes are ischemic, the other 20 or hemorrhagic, which usually result in death. Ischemic strokes occur when plaque builds up in the arteries, causing restricted vessels to be blocked by a blood clot.

Derek Morgan: Okay, but doesn't it take years for that type of plaque to build up?

Spencer Reid: Ah, typically.

Derek Morgan: Well then like I said, he was too young.

Spencer Reid: Did you know that stroke victims that play virtual reality games show significant advances in recovery than those who don't?

Aaron Hotchner: Now, here's somebody. In 1987 he was 30, single, dishonorable discharged.

Derek Morgan: It's a good start. What was the injury?

Aaron Hotchner: Broken neck. Intensive skull therapy for 9 years.

Spencer Reid: What's he been doing since?

Aaron Hotchner: The guy moved to the Florida Keys, he's a scuba instructor. He's got the right idea.

Derek Morgan: Come on. There's got to be something in here.


Jason Gideon: Taking a break?

Max Ryan: Is there anything worse than cop shop coffee?

Jason Gideon: Nailed cop shop donuts?

Max Ryan: You know, at home I actually have to make the coffee bad now to enjoy it.

Jason Gideon: Yeah, I've had what you make. You're saying you did that to me on purpose?

Max Ryan: Well, what are friends for?

Jason Gideon: Remember that uh! Boise child murderer?

Max Ryan: How could I forget him?

Jason Gideon: Lake City detective, Griffin was his name? Right?

Max Ryan: Yeah.

Jason Gideon: I remember, we got to that man, that man was nearly suicidal.

Max Ryan: Literally had kids dropping around him like files.

Jason Gideon: You told him feeling guilty when a series of crimes is occurring that you can't stop, natural response. Important thing, not to let yourself become another victim.

Max Ryan: Hey, this is different.

Jason Gideon: Really?

Max Ryan: Really. You see, Jason, somewhere I think in my subconscious I hoped that writing this book would draw him out, that he missed the attention. And maybe... Maybe I wanted to play his game.

Jason Gideon: You had no idea he'd kill again?

Max Ryan: No, but he did. And now there's another woman out there in danger.

Jason Gideon: You know this man better than he knows himself. You always have. Now you've got an advantage. You've got a team of most incredible agents in the world out there. And you're standing here alone. If you let us, we'll help you find him.


Aaron Hotchner: Elle’s running down injuries on college campuses. The guy's well read, he may have been a professor.

Spencer Reid: There are just too many hospitals, clinics, long-term care facilities, we'd be sifting through records for weeks.

Derek Morgan: Come on. There's got to be someway to narrow down the search, right?

Aaron Hotchner: We ruled out a stroke and half the hospital don't even say how the accident occurred.

Spencer Reid: Accidents? In America, someone's involved in a car accident once in every 10 seconds.

Jason Gideon: Car accidents with injuries would all be reported by the police.

Max Ryan: We profiled him driving a late model American made sedan.

Derek Morgan: All right, so how about I get Garcia to check Philly PD records for accidents involving American made sedans in serious injury.

Max Ryan: It's a long shot.

Jason Gideon: It's a shot. Start with 1988, if it was an accident it stopped him in his tracks.


Penelope Garcia: Speak!

Derek Morgan: I need a list, sweetness.

Penelope Garcia: Ahh, sugar, you're in luck. Lists are my specialty. Go.

Derek Morgan: Alright, Philadelphia 1988, I need all car accidents resulting in injuries.

Penelope Garcia: Wow, there's a lot of them. I guess friends let friends drive drunk back then. Okay, you got injuries 36 in a 12 month period.

Derek Morgan: How many were American made cars?

Penelope Garcia: Almost all of them, except only 5 were serious enough to send the drivers to the hospital. Let's hear it from American made safety.

Derek Morgan: Tell me who the drivers were.

Penelope Garcia: Okay, one happened on I95 by the airport, ambulance picked up the other driver outside of 32-45 Anders Street. Ouch, broken back, that's not good. Wait, Anders Street.

Derek Morgan: Thrity-two hundred block of Anders, that's where Carla Bromwell lived.

Penelope Garcia: Well, that driver's name is Walter Kern, currently 48 years old, and still residing in the city of brother and sisterly love.

Derek Morgan: If he's 48 that would have put him in his late 20's at the time of the killing. Just like Ryan predicted.


Derek Morgan: Walter Kern had a military background. ROTC in high school, 4 years in the air force.

Spencer Reid: Hospital records show that he lost mobility in his right side due to severed nerve damage to his spinal cord.

Max Ryan: He never got the strength back.

Aaron Hotchner: Kern's been a county worker, claims adjuster, and get this, he installed home alarms with Scott Harbin.

Jason Gideon: Takes one to know one.

Spencer Reid: All those jobs allowed him access to peoples homes.

Derek Morgan: Explains why there was no sign of forced entry. He had a legitimate reason to knock on the door.

Jason Gideon: Women felt comfortable letting him inside.

Elle Greenaway: He got a degree in criminology from Villanova in 1988. I wonder if he murdered anyone on campus.

Jason Gideon: That certainly explains his knowledge of law enforcement.

Aaron Hotchner: This looks like our guy. Anybody's got a current address?

Max Ryan: 557 Wight Street, Southeast Philadelphia. I got you, you son of a bitch. We got him, let's go bring him in.


Sylvia Gooden: Hey, Walter. Come on in.


Anne Kern: How can I help you gentlemen?

Jason Gideon: I'm special agent Jason Gideon, this is special agent Max Ryan with the FBI. Could we speak with Walter Kern?

Anne Kern: He's not here right now.

Jason Gideon: You know where he is?

Anne Kern: Is something wrong?

Jason Gideon: Could we come inside?


Sylvia Gooden: What are you going to do? Why are you doing this? Why?

Walter Kern: Put on these cuffs. Do it… Now!


Anne Kern: Walter's at the Pinewood Community Center working with the boy scouts. He volunteers as one of the leaders.

Max Ryan: Would it be possible for us to search the house, ma'am?

Jason Gideon: Hotch, he's at the Pinewood Community Center.

Anne Kern: What for?

Max Ryan: We've been called into investigate the murders of several women here in Philadelphia. That's why we need to talk to him.

Anne Kern: That is the craziest thing I've ever heard… And I'm going to have to ask you to leave. Now.

Max Ryan: Can you answer one question for us, ma'am? Does your husband have an area here in the house that you're never supposed to go into? A place that you're not supposed to see?

Anne Kern: Walter has a dark room.

Jason Gideon: If he knew you were in there, would he become so angry that you fear he could hurt you?

Anne Kern: He just doesn't want me to ruin his pictures. That's all.

Max Ryan: Mrs. Kern, has your husband ever suffered from long periods of depression?

Anne Kern: Yes, after his car accident.

Max Ryan: And did he suddenly snap out of it for no apparent reason?

Anne Kern: What does all this mean?

Jason Gideon: Could you show us the room, Mrs. Kern?


Agent: It's clear.


Max Ryan: Looks like he collected every article written about him.

Jason Gideon: He's got your book.

Max Ryan: Damn it, I signed it.

Spencer Reid: Hotch was entirely correct about the photography. His cellar's where he develops his photographs. What's that, a scrap book?

Jason Gideon: There's a chapter on every woman he's killed.

Spencer Reid: These entries are detailed enough to let him relive the kills for years.

Jason Gideon: Candid photographs of the victims at the park, grocery store, outside of church, driver's license, clothing, jewellery.

Max Ryan: Those chapters in the back, they're not finished.

Spencer Reid: These photographs are at least 20 years old. I mean look at the hair styles, the clothing... His recent themes of communication have been about old friends, unfinished business. His car accident was in the Fairmount district of Philadelphia, that's exactly where Carla Bromwell lived.

Jason Gideon: He was on the way to kill her when he had his accident.

Spencer Reid: It's not about finding a new type of victim, it's about his specific target.

Max Ryan: Because he was such a perfectionist, and is a perfectionist, he had to finish what he had started years ago.

Jason Gideon: All these aren't new victims, Max. They were already targeted, right from day one.

Max Ryan: Who's in that last chapter?


Sylvia Gooden: What's wrong with you, Walter? I've known you and Ann for years, you're good people.

Walter Kern: Lie down on your back. Speak again, and I will kill you.


Jason Gideon: I believe Walter Kern is in Sylvia Gooden's home now, Hotch confirmed he left the community center hours ago, and Kern's car's parked on the next block.

Max Ryan: I want Walter Kern alive.

Agent: I'll stand by for the word.

Jason Gideon: Okay, let's move out. I'll call you when we've secured Kern.


Sylvia Gooden: Please… Don't.

Walter Kern: I need to do this. I can't stop it.

Sylvia Gooden: No! No!


Sylvia Gooden: No! No!

Walter Kern: It'll be over soon.

Jason Gideon: Don't move! Don't move!

Derek Morgan: Down on your knees!

Jason Gideon: Down! Don't move!

Walter Kern: Watch my arm!

Max Ryan: It's all right, FBI.

Derek Morgan: Watch it!

Max Ryan: FBI. Easy! You're going to be all right.

Jason Gideon: We got her. Sylvia Gooden's alive. We got her.

Derek Morgan: Gideon, I need your cuffs, man.

Max Ryan: You're going to be fine. It's over. You're going to be fine.

Jason Gideon: Why don't you do this? I'll take care of her.

Derek Morgan: That's enough. Now get up.

Jason Gideon: You're going to be okay. You're all right. Just breath. Just breath.

Derek Morgan: You got him.

Max Ryan: Yeah, I got him.

Walter Kern: I know you've enjoyed this ride as much as I have, Max.

Max Ryan: I sure am enjoying this part of it.

Walter Kern: We are inseparable, you and me.

Max Ryan: Let's just test that theory, huh? Get him out of here.


Elle Greenaway: Abraham Lincoln once said, "In the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years."


Max Ryan: Did Jason ever tell you about the time that he found the director's itinerary in a bomber's car?

Spencer Reid: What, what?

Jason Gideon: Come on, come on.

Derek Morgan: No, no. He never said anything.

Max Ryan: Well, let me fill you in then. We had this bomber case, it was one of Jason's first so we had him go over and search the bomber's car, which was in the Quantico garage. Except for me and the guys had planted this piece of paper that had all these times and locations of where the FBI director was going to be over the next 48 hours. Anyway, Jason takes one look at this piece of paper and before we could stop him, he takes off runs up 25 flights of stairs to the directors office.

Jason Gideon: Get out of here!

Max Ryan: Barges in interrupting a meeting with the Attorney General himself.

Derek Morgan: Yay!

Jason Gideon: The director didn't find it very funny.

Max Ryan: Now, he was the only one who did this.


Elle Greenaway: You know he has no one, no family.

Aaron Hotchner: Who's that?

Elle Greenaway: Ryan. I mean technically he's retired, but he hasn't seen his kids in years.

Aaron Hotchner: Divorce is not uncommon in the B.A.U.

Elle Greenaway: You know the other night when you called, Saturday night, don't you think it was weird that we all just were able to drop everything and go to the office, that we're all available to you anytime you call, day or night.

Aaron Hotchner: No, not really.

Elle Greenaway: How do you do it? How do you do this job, and still have a wife, and a baby?

Aaron Hotchner: Well, when I'm with them I try to focus 100% of my attention there. And when I'm with you guys, I try to do the same thing. It's about priorities, Elle. It's about setting them and keeping them.

Elle Greenaway: I'm just so scared that I'm going to turn into that guy over there. Look up and see that my life has passed me by while I was chasing monsters.

Aaron Hotchner: It's hard. This job will eat you up if you let it.

Elle Greenaway: So what do I do?

Aaron Hotchner: Find a way not to let it.
