Une famille est heureuse dans le parc. Un homme surgit quand la mère est seule en lui faisant croire que sa fille a disparue et il l'assomme. Dans le même temps, une prostituée est abattue dans une ruelle et l'agent Prentiss, fille de l'ambassadeur, s'incruste dans l'équipe du DSC alors que ni Hotchner, ni Gideon ont approuvé le transfert. Le DSC est alerté pour les deux tueurs dans la même ville. Le tueur de prostituées en tue une juste après que l'autre tueur ait fait une victime. Morgan se rend chez le mari de la femme disparue dans le parc.

Le tueur l'observe alors qu'il vient de l'enterrer dans un bois. Hotchner et Reid vont chez la prostituée où la grand mère surveille ses 3 petits enfants. Il se rend compte que les prostituées n'ont pas d'importance pour les médias. JJ fait le même constat au commissariat local où il y a plusieurs boites sur les cas du tueur de Mill Creek et quelques pages sur Hollow Man. JJ rencontre alors le journaliste couvrant le tueur de Mill Creek qui a été contacté par Hollow Man qui est en quête de reconnaissance médiatique.

JJ lui demande alors de ne pas parler de Hollow Man pour conserver le contact avec lui: il va insister pour paraitre dans le journal. Gideon et Morgan se rendent sur les lieux où se trouve le cadavre de la femme du parc. Le corps est à 60 kilomètres, l'enterre sous les feuilles pour protéger le cadavre et ils remarquent que le maquillage est récent. Dans le même temps, deux nouvelles prostituées sont abattues en même temps. Mais le MO est différent : de jour, avec des putes de luxe et derrière un hôtel. Ils rattachent ce meurtre à Hollow Man grâce au journal laissé en évidence. Le journaliste veut parler de lui mais JJ insiste pour qu'il se retienne. Reid analyse la lettre : il n'est pas sûr de lui et subit une forte tension intérieure. Il en déduit aussi que Hollow Man en a marre d'être seul et invisible aux yeux des autres. Hotchner déduit de ses actes qu'il prend confiance en lui et devient imprévisible.

Gideon établit le profil de Mill Creek: Passe du temps avec les victimes, semble inoffensif et séduisant, à l'aise socialement, a un grand sentiment de puissance grâce à ça. Son rituel domine ses pensées. Ses motivations sont sexuelles et cela le rend plus prévisibles que Hollow Man.

Dans le même temps, une nouvelle femme disparait: même MO, même profil de victime. Pour le coincer, il faut trouver le corps et attendre qu'il revienne profaner le cadavre. Mais où cache t'il le corps ? La forêt est vaste. Mais il y a une constante: il sait où les rangers passent et quand de manière à être tranquille. Grâce à Garcia, ils délimitent une route qu'il suit. Sur le terrain, ils retrouvent bien le corps non profané. Le DSC se planque alors décidé à l'attendre. Ils coincent alors quelqu'un.

Mais ce n'est pas le tueur de Mill Creek mais le journaliste qui explique qu'il a reçu une lettre de Hollow Man expliquant comment la trouver. Le DSC s'inquiète car Hollow Man a enfin l'attention qu'il voulait et le tueur de Mill Creek n'ayant pas pu réaliser son fantasme va devenir incontrôlable et enragé. Au même moment, il tente d'enlever quelqu'un mais elle ne tombe pas dans son piège. Le DSC l'interroge et dresse ainsi un portrait robot du tueur de Mill Creek.

Reid étudit les journaux et il comprend que les deux tueurs communiquent entre eux par les petites annonces. Au début, il s'admirait mais aujourd'hui, le manque de reconnaissance de Hollow Man a transformé son admiration en rivalité puis en rapport maitre/élève. L'indication du lieu de son meurtre prouve cela. Mais la tournure des évènements montre que le disciple veut tuer le maitre. Reid réalise alors une fausse annonce pour les coincer en faisant croire à celui de Mill Creek que Hollow Man lui offre une victime pour compenser sa perte. Un agent se fait alors passer pour une victime planquée dans les bois. Et le tueur de Mill Creek se fait avoir. Gideon va l'interroger.

Il nie tout prétextant aider une jeune femme. Gideon joue alors avec ses rapports avec Hollow Man, lui faisant croire que Hollow Man est plus fort que lui et sur le fait que les profaner n'est pas un art. Le tueur avoue alors en insistant sur le silence à porter sur les profanations.

JJ fait alors une conférence de presse dans laquelle elle fait passer Hollow Man pour un moins que rien. Cela marche. Hollow Man débarque armé au commissariat, exigeant de voir le tueur de Mill Creek. Morgan le surprend alors et il se fait arrêter.

A son retour à Washington, Hotchner trouve Emily Prentiss dans son bureau qui a planché sur le profil d'un tueur et elle lui explique qu'elle n'est pas la fille à papa qu'il croit et qu'elle a le profilage dans le sang. Hotchner décide alors de lui laisser une chance.

Tom Carroll: Okay… It is not just me, right?

Ellen Carroll: Our girl's got an arm.

Tom Carroll: Yeah.

Ellen Carroll: Oh. Just like her dad. Look at her. We blinked and four years went by. So, what do you think? Should we do this again?

Tom Carroll: Sounds like a plan.

Ellen Carroll: Who's coming? What do you think, Katie? You want a little brother or sister? Yeah? Well... The boss has spoken… Okay. Well, you go get her, and I'll go get lunch.

Tom Carroll: Okay.

----------

Mill Creek Killer: My daughter Molly. She's 6. She's got braids, yellow sweatshirt. What am I gonna do?

Ellen Carroll: Okay, okay. Calm down. Braids, yellow sweatshirt.

Mill Creek Killer: We were playing hide and seek up here. She must have gotten lost in the trees. Oh, God. I'm so stupid.

Ellen Carroll: Tom! Tom!

Mill Creek Killer: Shh, shh, shh! Wait... Did you hear that? It came from over here. Molly? Honey? Daddy's here. Molly… No.

Ellen Carroll: Did you find Molly? Is she okay?

----------

Jason Mitchell: Mom, wake up. It's past 10:00.

Marci Mitchell: Damn it. Why did you let me sleep?

Jason Mitchell: Why don't you get an alarm clock?

Marci Mitchell: Did you eat?

Jason Mitchell: Pizza.

Marci Mitchell: And the baby?

Jason Mitchell: Pizza. And milk.

Marci Mitchell: Get some sleep, Jay… Hey, I'll bring you some pancakes.

Jason Mitchell: Yeah. When?

----------

Marci Mitchell: Hey. Want company? Hi.

----------

Aaron Hotchner: Come in.

Emily Prentiss: Hi.

Aaron Hotchner: Hi.

Emily Prentiss: Agent Hotchner?

Aaron Hotchner: Yes.

Emily Prentiss: I'm Agent Emily Prentiss.

Aaron Hotchner: How do you do? Oh, you're ambassador Prentiss' daughter. I did security clearances for your mother's staff. It was one of my first commands. I believe you were off to Brown at the time.

Emily Prentiss: Actually, it was Yale.

Aaron Hotchner: Ah.

Emily Prentiss: I've been in the bureau almost 10 years now.

Aaron Hotchner: Don't tell me that. Has it been that long?

Emily Prentiss: Apparently, sir. But I work mostly in the Midwest. St. Louis, Chicago.

Aaron Hotchner: Good. Your parents well?

Emily Prentiss: Yeah, yeah, they're great.

Aaron Hotchner: Excellent. What can I do for you?

Emily Prentiss: Well, I guess I was hoping you could tell me where to put my stuff.

Aaron Hotchner: I'm sorry?

Emily Prentiss: I'm supposed to start here today... At the BAU.

Aaron Hotchner: There's been a mistake.

Emily Prentiss: I don't think so, sir.

Aaron Hotchner: There's definitely been a mistake.

Jennifer Jareau: Excuse me. We're getting started.

Aaron Hotchner: Thank you. I'll be right there. I didn't approve this transfer, Agent Prentiss. I'm sorry for the confusion, but you've been misinformed. Excuse me. It's very good to see you again.

----------

Aaron Hotchner: Did you approve any transfer?

Jason Gideon: No. I would've discussed it.

Aaron Hotchner: That's what I thought. She's got the paperwork to join the team.

Jason Gideon: You want me to make a call?

Aaron Hotchner: No, I'll look into it.

----------

Jennifer Jareau: St. Louis is in trouble.

Aaron Hotchner: They've got two serial killers.

Jason Gideon: This killer abducts his victims from public places, dumps them in the woods. They consulted us months ago after the third murder.

Jennifer Jareau: Well, now it might be up to 6… Ellen Carroll's been missing since yesterday. The first two victims were found near Mill Creek, in Mark Twain national forest.

Spencer Reid: No wonder it takes days to find the bodies. The forest is 1.5 million acres and 78,000 of that is wilderness.

Aaron Hotchner: What's the story with these women?

Jennifer Jareau: Eight victims. All prostitutes. Latest is Marci Mitchell. She was killed last night with a. 44 magnum. All are tied to a serial shooter claiming responsibility. He's contacted Jim Meyers, a reporter at the Missouri Herald.

Aaron Hotchner: So he's not getting the attention he thinks he deserves. He signs it the Hollow Man, names himself for the press.

Derek Morgan: Why Hollow Man? What, he feels empty inside or something?

Jennifer Jareau: He uses hollow point bullets. No one even knew this guy existed until he sent this letter.

Aaron Hotchner: Well, he's killed more victims, but look who he's chosen. Hundreds of victims go unnoticed because they're social outcasts.

Spencer Reid: When Mill Creek kills, the Hollow Man shoots another prostitute.

Derek Morgan: So one doesn't want to be outdone by the other. Sounds like sibling rivalry to me.

Aaron Hotchner: They've been killing independently of each other for a year now.

Jason Gideon: With each kill they're learning something... From the other.

----------

Jason Gideon: Elbert Hubbert once wrote: "If men could only know each other, they would neither idolize nor hate."

----------

Jason Gideon: Thank you.

Jennifer Jareau: What's wrong?

Spencer Reid: Did you know there are roughly 30 serial killers at large in the U.S. at any given time? It's an incredibly rare occurrence to have them operating in the same city.

Jennifer Jareau: How many times has that happened?

Spencer Reid: To my knowledge, three times. There was a guy killing at the same time as the Son of Sam. And then again in New Orleans, and most recently with the Phoenix murders.

Aaron Hotchner: Serial shooters are typically loners. This guy likes to kill at night.  His victims are prostitutes, so he may lack confidence with women or have poor social skills.

Derek Morgan: There's no rape. The guy could be impotent.

Jason Gideon: He's a wannabe tough guy.

Jennifer Jareau: It's not hard to be tough holding a. 44.

Spencer Reid: The gun gives him power and lets him maintain distance from the kill. This guy doesn't want to touch the bodies with his hands.

Jason Gideon: Mill Creek killer. Hunts during the day, targets educated, middle-class women. He'd have to look and act like they do.

Spencer Reid: The women died from blunt force head traumas. This guy wants to be close, he wants to feel the life leave their bodies. These guys are polar opposites.

Aaron Hotchner: Just like their victims. They live in the same city but they're worlds apart. I'm gonna see if the shooter's victims have any families I can talk to.

Jason Gideon: That's a good idea. I'm already familiar with the Mill Creek case.

Aaron Hotchner: Reid, can you take a look at the letter for handwriting analysis and psycho linguistics?

Spencer Reid: Of course.

Derek Morgan: Looks like I'm with you. I'll go have a talk with Ellen Carroll's husband.

Jennifer Jareau: I'm meeting Jim Meyers, the reporter from the Missouri Herald.

Jason Gideon: Tell him not to write about the Hollow Man. If we want to draw the shooter out, best way to do that is to act like he doesn't exist.

----------

Tom Carroll: I'll feel much better when you find Ellen.

Derek Morgan: Mr. Carroll, believe me, we are trying.

Tom Carroll: You know, when you have kids, you become so... Fixated on where they are and what they're doing, you don't think you need to worry about your spouse.

Derek Morgan: I understand your wife is a partner at a law firm… Now aside from work, taking care of the family, does she make time for herself?

Tom Carroll: She's an avid runner, participates in the St. Louis marathon every year.

Derek Morgan: Is she shy, nervous about meeting new people?

Tom Carroll: Ever since we had Katie, I'd say she's much more trusting.

Derek Morgan: You don't remember her talking to anyone you don't know at that playground?

Tom Carroll: No. No one… How did I not see someone take my wife?

Derek Morgan: Mr. Carroll, the man who did this, somehow he just fits right in. He doesn't look or sound like he doesn't belong… Oh, hey, little lady.

Tom Carroll: She keeps asking me when her mommy's coming home… I don't know what to say.

----------

Mill Creek Killer: I missed you… You are so beautiful.

----------

Aaron Hotchner: Agents Hotchner and Reid, FBI.

Betty: What do you want?

Aaron Hotchner: We'd like to talk to you.

Betty: Hold that badge up again.

----------

Aaron Hotchner: We're here to talk to you about Marcie Mitchell.

Betty: I'm her mother.

Aaron Hotchner: I'm sorry for your loss, ma'am.

Jason Mitchell: What's this?

Betty: They're for me. Take your brother inside.

Jason Mitchell: Is this about mom?

Betty: I said inside… You gonna judge me or ask questions?

Spencer Reid: Is there anyone who can help you with the kids?

Betty: Is that what you came here for?

Jason Mitchell: Ma'am, we've just been assigned your daughter's case. We're in the process of gathering information, but so far no witnesses have come forward.

Betty: Well, around here guns go off like those damn car alarms, every 15 minutes. Nobody's stupid enough to talk, nobody cares.

Spencer Reid: We do.

Betty: You wouldn't even be here if it wasn't for them. "Heinous crimes against upstanding members of the community." Nobody writes about prostitutes being shot because they won't admit they think they're cleaning up the place.

Aaron Hotchner: You're right. Cases like your daughter's usually go unsolved. The problem is people aren't looking for them because they don't know that they're missing. Part of her job was... To stay below the radar. Doesn't mean she was any less important.

Betty: She made bad choices… But she was a good person… She loved those boys. Whoever shot her should pay for what they did. So don't come in here and say you're sorry. Just do something about it.

Aaron Hotchner: We will, Ma'am.

----------

Jennifer Jareau: Hi. You must be Agent Sheridan?

James Sheridan: Agent Jareau.

Jennifer Jareau: Hi.

James Sheridan: Really appreciate you coming so quickly.

Jennifer Jareau: Yeah.

James Sheridan: Why don't you set up in here?

Jennifer Jareau: Oh, wow. You've got lots of evidence for the Mill Creek killer case. What about the Hollow Man?

James Sheridan: Right here.

Jennifer Jareau: There's been at least eight women shot. This is all we've got?

James Sheridan: You know these cases don't generate much evidence. All we have at the scene are a couple of bullets and... No one's talking.

Jennifer Jareau: Well, hopefully, we can change that.

Agent: Agent Jareau, there's a reporter here to see you.

Jennifer Jareau: Thank you. Excuse me.

James Sheridan: Sure.

----------

Jennifer Jareau: Jim Meyers.

Jim Meyers: Hi.

Jennifer Jareau: Agent Jareau. We spoke on the phone. Thanks for stopping by.

Jim Meyers: Sure. Here's that letter I faxed to you.

Jennifer Jareau: Oh, great.

Jim Meyers: So, did the Hollow Man shoot those prostitutes because I wrote about the Mill Creek victims?

Jennifer Jareau: He would've killed them anyway. But right now he's looking for recognition. That's why he's contacted you.

Jim Meyers: But I'm not in any danger. I don't want to be staring down the barrel of a gun.

Jennifer Jareau: Right now he needs you. You're his only hope to get on that front page.

Jim Meyers: I had no idea I could get on a serial killer's radar by writing about another one.

Jennifer Jareau: We're gonna to ask that you not print anything relating to the Hollow Man or the women he's killed.

Jim Meyers: Don't those victims deserve just as much ink as those other women?

Jennifer Jareau: Of course they do. But we need the shooter to keep communicating with you. And if you satisfy his need for attention, he could disappear, and I'm sorry. We just can't take that chance.

James Sheridan: Excuse me, Agent Jareau? We just found Ellen Carroll's body.

----------

Jennifer Jareau: Agents Gideon, Morgan, this is Agent Sheridan.

Jason Gideon: How are you? Forgive the gloves.

Derek Morgan: How far is the abduction site from these woods?

James Sheridan: About 40 miles or so.

Derek Morgan: He tried to hide it pretty well.

James Sheridan: He covers the body very carefully. Must feel remorse for killing them.

Jennifer Jareau: This lipstick's been applied recently. It's still moist. Look at her hair. It's been brushed, put behind her ears. She was abducted, what, an hour from here? Dragged through these woods?

Derek Morgan: Her hair would not look like that. So he keeps her safe from the elements and then comes back to the body. That's why he chooses a secondary location that's so remote.

James Sheridan: This isn't about remorse.

Derek Morgan: No.

Jason Gideon: He wants to be alone with her. Needs his privacy.

Derek Morgan: You never noticed the hair or the makeup before?

James Sheridan: No. Maybe it was the timing. She was found within 24 hours, and the others had already succumbed to the elements.

Derek Morgan: Sex acts with dead bodies are rare occurrences. However, Bundy did it regularly.

James Sheridan: So how is this going to help us to catch him?

Jason Gideon: Now we know he has a ritual. He needs to defile the bodies. Next time we'll be here waiting for him.

----------

Prostitute: We're off-duty just like you.

----------

Spencer Reid: Two victims at once. That's a first for him. You think he went out looking to kill more than one woman or is it just happenstance?

Aaron Hotchner: He chose a different hunting ground. Yes, we're in an alley, but we're behind an expensive hotel in a nice neighbourhood. You get a different class of prostitute, ones that don't walk the street alone.

Spencer Reid: He was looking for a challenge.

Aaron Hotchner: Question is, what gave him the confidence to stray out of his comfort zone? Make sure to run that for prints.

Spencer Reid: He displayed the newspaper between them. He took the time when he could've just tossed it aside.

Aaron Hotchner: It's deliberate. He wants us to know he's angry.

Spencer Reid: Angry enough to change his M.O.

----------

Jim Meyers: I heard there was a double homicide this morning. Was it Hollow Man?

Jennifer Jareau: Agents are confirming that now.

Jim Meyers: If I'd written about him.

Jennifer Jareau: There's no guarantee that he would've stopped killing if you would've given into his demands. In fact, media attention could've fuelled him to kill more.

Jim Meyers: We don't know that for sure. This is all just a guessing game, isn't it?

Jennifer Jareau: No. It's behavioural analysis. We're dealing with an offender who believes that murdering people is a good way to become famous.

Jim Meyers: All I know is you told me to ignore him and he takes 2 lives. If I dismiss this double homicide, what happens tomorrow?

Jennifer Jareau: We won't know until then.

----------

Jennifer Jareau: Too bad we couldn't trace any prints from the newspaper. What have you got?

Spencer Reid: He only sent this to an individual, which shows he's not confident enough to initiate contact with the masses. Emotional indicators are analyzed through slants. The shooter maintains vertical, narrow-lettered writing, both signs of repression. And the pressure, if you look closely, is excessively heavy, which shows that he's uptight and can easily overreact.

Jennifer Jareau: You got all that from his handwriting?

Spencer Reid: Graphology is an effective and reliable indicator of personality and behaviour.

Jennifer Jareau: My writing's always different.

Spencer Reid: That's because it symbolizes your emotions at that given time, just like your facial expressions parallel the way you're feeling while you're speaking.

Jennifer Jareau: I'm surprised this guy writes in cursive. His message is so clear. I would've thought he'd print everything.

Spencer Reid: Actually, his connected writing shows that he deals with problems in a practical and direct manner.

Jennifer Jareau: Like shooting someone.

Spencer Reid: Exactly.

----------

Spencer Reid: The Hollow Man uses simple statements, all first person. For example: "I won't be ignored." He's obviously tired of feeling this way. It's quite possible he has a job in solitude or one that he feels strips him of his identity. His job might require him to wear a uniform, something that shows absolutely no individuality. Or he may be overqualified for his menial job and feels that he doesn't get the respect that he necessarily deserves.

Aaron Hotchner: But today he's killed two women, which tells us he's growing confident. This makes him unpredictable and dangerous. And because he has no physical contact with his victims, it's going to make him that much harder to catch.

Derek Morgan: We have more information on the Mill Creek killer because he spends a lot of time with his victims before and after his kills.

Jason Gideon: Because his victims willingly follow him in broad daylight, he appears harmless. He's most likely handsome.

James Sheridan: Handsome?

Jason Gideon: Yes. These women wouldn't follow an unattractive man. They just wouldn't.

Derek Morgan: He's handsome, and he's got the socials kills to trick his victims. Those who know him well, they'd be shocked to learn that he's the man that we're after.

Jason Gideon: He's been able to get his victims away from family, friends. Obviously, this makes him feel powerful.

James Sheridan: If this guy is so smart, why would he risk driving his victims from the abduction site to the woods?

Jason Gideon: Because of the ritual. It's become the most important thing to him. Dominates his thoughts. Woods provide the privacy he needs.

Derek Morgan: The Hollow Man is motivated by external pressures. This is a guy who simply wants attention. The Mill Creek killer, on the other hand, he's driven by internal forces. He's a sexually motivated offender. This makes him a lot more predictable but don't think for a second it makes him any easier to catch.

----------

Meredith Dale: Where are you?

Mill Creek Killer: Excuse me.

----------

Jennifer Jareau: Meredith Dale. 25. She was supposed to meet her friend for a bike ride but disappeared.

Derek Morgan: Disappeared when?

Jennifer Jareau: An hour ago.

James Sheridan: How can we be sure it's him?

Derek Morgan: Well, look at her. She's his type physically, she vanishes into thin air. It's got the Mill Creek's M.O. all over it.

James Sheridan: I'll set up road blocks in and out of the forest.

Derek Morgan: Well, based on the other timelines, we have to assume he's hiding her body right now.

Jason Gideon: Best chance of catching him is find Meredith Dale's body and sit tight. We know he'll be back.

----------

Officer: I'm going to need you to step out of your vehicle.

Mill Creek Killer: What's going on here, officer?

Officer: Just routine check. Can you open your back?

Mill Creek Killer: Yeah, sure… Many people come through here today?

Officer: What are you doing up here?

Mill Creek Killer: Went for a hike.

Officer: No water, no supplies?

Mill Creek Killer: My boots are all I need… That it?

Officer: That's it.

Mill Creek Killer: Okay.

----------

Derek Morgan: What if these dump sites aren't random?

James Sheridan: The bodies were scattered all over. Look at this. There's no pattern.

Derek Morgan: No, I see that, but we're talking about a lot of area to cover here. He had to have some kind of plan going into these woods.

Jason Gideon: Must have done his homework.

Derek Morgan: Okay. The first body was found deep into the woods. That's a three-hour car ride from the city.

Jason Gideon: The first time, he's more careful in disposing of her.

Derek Morgan: Her body was discovered by a forest ranger five days after the abduction… And all the other victims, look at this, they follow the same pattern.

James Sheridan: What are you saying? You think he works up there?

Derek Morgan: He might. All I do know for sure is that he has to be familiar enough with these woods to know when a ranger is on duty. He knew precisely when and where to drop the bodies.

----------

Penelope Garcia: Now that is an awesome place to dump a person.

Derek Morgan: Come on, Garcia.

Penelope Garcia: What? I'm just saying, angel fish. A million acres converts into over 2,300 square miles to cover. Evil knew what he was doing.

Derek Morgan: Yeah?  Well, now so do we. Talk to me. How's the ranger schedule break down?

Penelope Garcia: Okay. The national forest is divided into 6 ranger districts, which are patrolled every 3 to 5 days. Now, the Potosi-Fredricktown area must be where he's headed to next because the rangers were just there yesterday, which means they're not scheduled to revisit it for at least another 3 days. And look at that, it's the district closest to the city.

Derek Morgan: Well, that makes sense. He's in a hurry. He wants to get in and out of there without a lot of trouble. Which area has the easiest access to the main road?

Penelope Garcia: That would be... Saltgrass Cove.

Derek Morgan: Saltgrass Cove… Yep. He'd have plenty of time to revisit her.

Penelope Garcia: What? Forget. No, no. I don't want to know that. Bye-bye.

Derek Morgan: Think I know where he took Meredith Dale.

----------

Agent: Brownie, come here.

James Sheridan: Damn it.

Jason Gideon: Please, please. Everything needs to look the same as when he left it.

Derek Morgan: He'll come back. He needs to see Meredith again.

James Sheridan: This bastard has killed seven women on my watch. Comb the scene!

Jason Gideon: No, no. Please, please! Stop! Let's clear the immediate area. Post yourselves along the perimeter. It's imperative that you become invisible… He set his own trap. What we need to do now is... Stake out in the woods and hunt him, just like he does his victims.

----------

Derek Morgan: That's got to be him. FBI! Stay down! Hands where I can see them.

Jim Meyers: Okay, okay. Just take it easy.

James Sheridan: Jim Meyers. What the hell? You're the Mill Creek killer?

Jim Meyers: What? No.

Derek Morgan: Then how the hell did you get here?

Jim Meyers: I got another letter from the Hollow Man.

Derek Morgan: Telling you exactly where to find Meredith Dale?

Jim Meyers: I swear. You can read it.

Derek Morgan: "Follow the cottonwood trail through Saltgrass Cove."

James Sheridan: Wait a minute. We just figured this out ourselves. How can another killer know the specifics about someone else's dumpsite? What's going on?

Jason Gideon: It's going to be all over the news.

Derek Morgan: Look like the Hollow Man didn't give you the exclusive this time.

----------

Spencer Reid: So our plan to catch the Mill Creek killer was ruined by the Hollow Man?

Aaron Hotchner: And now the Hollow Man's on a high. He hasn't pulled the trigger since he took two victims yesterday. Is he satisfied or is he just getting started?

Jennifer Jareau: We'll find out.

Aaron Hotchner: "Hollow Man helps FBI find the Mill Creek killer's victim."

Derek Morgan: Nice. He's alerted the media and injected himself into the investigation.

Jennifer Jareau: He's getting the attention he's been craving.

Aaron Hotchner: But if the shooter really wants to get the other guy arrested, he would've called us and not the media.

Derek Morgan: He must know the Mill Creek killer needs to revisit the body.

Jason Gideon: If he can't defile the woman again, it'll become so strong, it could push him into a frenzy.

Derek Morgan: And if that happens, this guy is just a time bomb waiting to explode.

----------

Mill Creek Killer: Excuse me. Hi. Look, I'm having a day. My car won't start and I forgot my phone. Could I use yours to make a call?

Cara Becker: Yeah. Okay. I know it's here. I just used it.

Mill Creek Killer: What, you know what? Forget the phone. Maybe it'll start for you… Walk with me. It's right around the corner.

Cara Becker: No, that's ok.

Mill Creek Killer: No, come on.

Cara Becker: No. No!

Mill Creek Killer: Walk with me. Let go off me! Let me go!

Cara Becker: Help! Help! Somebody! Somebody! Help, please! Somebody! Please!

----------

Cara Becker: At first he seemed so normal.

Jason Gideon: Was he handsome?

Cara Becker: Excuse me?

Jason Gideon: Was he handsome?

Cara Becker: Yeah. He was. Actually, that's why I stopped.

Jason Gideon: When did his demeanour change?

Cara Becker: After I refused to go to his car. He grabbed my arm so hard I thought that it would break. I've been watching the news about all these women being abducted, and I just started screaming.

Jason Gideon: You trusted your instincts. Because of that, you're still alive.

Derek Morgan: Miss, there's a sketch artist here with us. He can create a pretty accurate rendition from your description of this man. Would you sit with him?

Cara Becker: Absolutely.

Derek Morgan: Officer.

Jason Gideon: I'm glad you're all right.

Cara Becker: Thank you.

----------

Derek Morgan: He's becoming irrational and violent in public. That's exactly what the Hollow Man wanted him to do.

Jason Gideon: Well, if he doesn't find a victim soon, he'll become more dangerous.

James Sheridan: How's that possible?

Derek Morgan: He'll drop the ruse entirely and just start grabbing women at random.

----------

Aaron Hotchner: Great. Thanks, Morgan. The witness got a good look at the Mill Creek killer. You know, if it's the Hollow Man's intention to force him into a frenzy, he's getting what he wants. He knew exactly where to find Meredith Dale's body. He figured out the route to the dump site the same way we did.

Spencer Reid: They always say serial killers make the best profilers.

Aaron Hotchner: Yeah, but this guy's dead-on… Yeah. The headline doesn't mention the shooter at all. We talked to Jim Meyers, the reporter, asked him not to respond to the letter, he doesn't, and then the guy goes out and shoots two more women.

Spencer Reid: In a better part of town.

Aaron Hotchner: What gives him this confidence? And what's the significance of the paper at the scene? We know he wants to be newsworthy. He could've just tossed it aside. Instead, he displayed it. There's something he wants us to look at. There's definitely something in the paper.

Spencer Reid: I figured it out.

Aaron Hotchner: What is it?

Spencer Reid: They're talking in the classifieds.

----------

James Sheridan: Classifieds, code names. This feels like an old spy movie.

Derek Morgan: It's low-tech, simple, but very effective. They've been doing this for months, and nobody ever knew it.

Spencer Reid: This is the first one that I found. The references are what made me suspicious. "Sunny, are you an artist too? I'd love to see your work sometime. Holden."

James Sheridan: Sunny? Holden?

Aaron Hotchner: They're characters from Catcher in the Rye.

Spencer Reid: Widely accepted as a loved book of sociopaths. Mark David Chapman quoted it after killing John Lennon.

Aaron Hotchner: Deranged minds identify with Holden's alienation and detachment.

Spencer Reid: I found the initial contact. It ran in the paper unchanged for months. "We have different tastes, but I can appreciate your art. Sunny."

Aaron Hotchner: Sunny's the Hollow Man. He initiated contact.

James Sheridan: What's he getting out of it?

Jason Gideon: A mentor. Offered admiration and respect. In return, he gains encouragement and confidence.

Aaron Hotchner: But when the Hollow Man remained unnoticed by the press, he resented his mentor and turned it into a rivalry.

Derek Morgan: Hollow man became jealous. They were both killers, but they weren't seen in the same playing field. What else did you find?

Spencer Reid: "An overwhelming area and you never get lost?" Then the answer to this question. "I do my research. It's not so random when you know the area. I like cotton wood in SGC."

Derek Morgan: SGC?  He's talking about Saltgrass Cove. He told him how to find Meredith Dale.

James Sheridan: Why?

Jason Gideon: Teaching his student a lesson.

Aaron Hotchner: We understand their relationship. Let's use it against them.

----------

Derek Morgan: Hey, sweetness. Make me smile and tell me you got a name.

Penelope Garcia: Oh, I got scads of them, babe, but none paid for these personal ads. They went with cash, totally old school. I hate it when they're smart. Two separate accounts in good standing.

Derek Morgan: Well, these guys are good. Thanks.

----------

Derek Morgan: Garcia says they covered their tracks. How's it going in here?

Aaron Hotchner: Reid's imitating the Hollow Man's language patterns to send a message to the Mill Creek killer. He's offering condolences on losing Meredith Dale.

Derek Morgan: If he can't get to Meredith Dale, he's gonna need a body. He's gonna need it real soon.

James Sheridan: You guys worried that the Hollow Man's going to ruin our plan again?

Jason Gideon: He wants the Mill Creek killer to get caught. The pupil's trying to kill the teacher?

Jennifer Jareau: Hope you're close, Reid.

Jim Meyers: You got less than an hour to meet the deadline.

----------

Jason Gideon: You'll be surrounded.

Derek Morgan: Need you to relax... As best as you can. This guy's going to want to get close to you, and he's going to want to examine you.

Agent: He's going to want to touch me?

Derek Morgan: Since you're a gift, not a marked victim, he might try to make you his own. But we're not going to let him get that far.

Jason Gideon: We need him to get close to confirm he's the killer.

Derek Morgan: There's nothing normal about this guy. Nothing.

James Sheridan: You have any questions?

Agent: Let's do this.

Jason Gideon: Okay. Down you go… Close your eyes. Try to relax.

----------

Spencer Reid: What do you think? Did it sound like the Hollow Man?

Jennifer Jareau: Hopefully the Mill Creek killer will buy it.

Spencer Reid: "Dear Holden, they say imitation is the highest form of flattery. Since you were almost in harm's way, I thought I'd share some art. Should make you feel better. Here's my gift to you. Sunny."

----------

Mill Creek Killer: Hello.

Derek Morgan: FBI! Get down! Stay down!

Jason Gideon: One down, one to go.

----------

Jason Gideon: Let's stop right here.

James Sheridan: It's going to be tough to push through this crowd.

Jason Gideon: That's the idea.

James Sheridan: I'm getting out. Secure a path to the door.

----------

James Sheridan: Everyone, take a step back. Get back!

Reporter 1: What do you have to say to the families of the women you killed?

Reporter 2: Do you have any remorse for what you've done?

Angry Man: You're going to hell.

Angry Woman: You deserve to die!

----------

Jennifer Jareau: I've alerted all news outlets that we'll be holding a press conference in 10 minutes.

Jason Gideon: And you have the script?

Jennifer Jareau: Right here.

Aaron Hotchner: Be sure to say exactly those words.

Derek Morgan: The wording's important, JJ.

Jennifer Jareau: Relax. It's not my first party, boys.

Aaron Hotchner: Gideon, we don't have much on mill creek, especially if he says he stumbled on the body.

Spencer Reid: So what are we going to do?

Jason Gideon: I'll go try and do my job.

----------

Jason Gideon: Okay. Thanks… You comfortable?

Mill Creek Killer: As comfortable as anyone can be in handcuffs.

Jason Gideon: Let me see… I'm Jason Gideon. You know, I don't know your name or... Where you're from... The only thing we do know is you're an intelligent, good-looking man with an inflated ego who happens to like killing women.

Mill Creek Killer: Well, you had me till that last part... Agent Gideon… Imagine how shocked I am, considering I haven't done anything. I see a woman who I think is in distress in the woods and I get... Pounced on.

Jason Gideon: FBI wants to interview you… Talk about your work. We never believed we'd have you in custody. I mean, definitely thought the Hollow Man would be easier to catch… Is that upsetting? I thought the two of you were friends, that you admired each other's work and...

Mill Creek Killer: I don't know the Hollow Man. But if I did, I'd say he sounds like an obsessed fan.

Jason Gideon: Is that how you see yourself, as... Somebody famous?

Mill Creek Killer: Well, from what I've read about the Mill Creek killer, I'd say he's an artist.

Jason Gideon: Fascination wasn't completely one-sided. You did respond to his ads in the paper.

Mill Creek Killer: No one can respect what the Hollow Man has done… He's got no imagination.

Jason Gideon: But he's smart. Found Meredith Dale's body, even told the media about it.

Mill Creek Killer: Whoever taught him, taught him very well.

Jason Gideon: That's very true. It just sounds like the student turns on the teacher.

Mill Creek Killer: No, no. He was protecting him.

Jason Gideon: Is that what you think the Hollow Man was doing?

Mill Creek Killer: What else could it be?

Jason Gideon: Manipulating you, gaining your trust. When he got it, the Hollow Man set you up. You were front page news. Now you'll be a footnote. Hollow Man's out there, you're in here. It's all because of him.

Mill Creek Killer: Is that what you want? You want me to get angry to help you catch him?

Jason Gideon: That is not your problem, sir.

Mill Creek Killer: Then what do you want?

Jason Gideon: I have just have one question… If killing those women made you an artist, the things you did to them after they were dead... What does that make you? I mean, really it... It just doesn't seem very artistic, does it? You went back, you fix their make-up, you'd comb their hair. And you visited them... Over and over and over.

Mill Creek Killer: I didn't do that.

Jason Gideon: If you thought you were famous before, wait until the press gets a hold of your details of your visit. You shut your mouth.

Mill Creek Killer: Shut your mouth.

Jason Gideon: You expect me to believe that you only killed those women? That it wasn't you who kept visiting the corpses? We found lipstick in your hand when we caught you.

Mill Creek Killer: You will not tell anyone that.

Jason Gideon: Excuse me?

Mill Creek Killer: I said you can never say that.

Jason Gideon: You didn't visit the corpses?

Mill Creek Killer: No.

Jason Gideon: No, you just killed them.

Mill Creek Killer: Yes. Yes. I killed them. But... But you can't tell anyone... That I went back… You can't... Do that.

----------

Jennifer Jareau: The women of St. Louis can rest easy tonight... After a long year, the Mill Creek killer is in custody. This man is highly intelligent and he uses a sophisticated ruse when luring these women in public places. The Mill Creek Killer is someone the BAU will want to study as one of the most complex criminals we've dealt with in years. Questions? Right here. Yes?

Reporter 3: What's the FBI doing about the other serial killer?

Jennifer Jareau: We have new information about that case. We no longer believe the shootings are related. Yes?

Reporter 4: What's the new information?

Jennifer Jareau: We believe they are isolated incidents, and we're looking into the possibility that the last two were copycats. Jim Meyers?

Jim Meyers: Are you referring to the killer who calls himself the Hollow Man?

Jennifer Jareau: We believe the person who wrote that letter is nothing but a street thug. We have evidence that indicates that the letter was just a prank to throw us off the investigation of the Mill Creek killer. This is no longer a BAU case. It lacks a certain sophistication, class, there's just nothing elegant about it. That's all the questions we'll take for now. Thank you.

Jason Gideon: Well, we set the bait, we'll see if he takes it.

----------

Security guard: Place your coins, keys, belts in the basket… Walk this way… Walk this way… Step to the side, please… Extend your arms.

Hollow Man: Stay down… Give me your weapon, now… Get up.

----------

Hollow Man: Where is he? I want to see him right now.

James Sheridan: You tell him the Hollow Man's here.

Hollow Man: He told you to say those things about me, didn't he? He told you to use those words.

Aaron Hotchner: Get him out of here.

Hollow Man: I'm no less elegant than he is. I'm no copycat.

Derek Morgan: Shut your mouth.

Hollow Man: I left you the newspaper! I gave you the Mill Creek killer! What else do I have to do?

Derek Morgan: Go! Get him out of here!

----------

Jennifer Jareau: This is the story for tomorrow.

Derek Morgan: "They were our daughters, sisters, brothers, and friends."

Jason Gideon: "They have every right to be remembered... And memorialized."

Spencer Reid: They didn't mention the shooter.

Aaron Hotchner: He was a nobody who wanted to be somebody by killing people and they didn't give him that… Good.

----------

Aaron Hotchner: Mahatma Gandhi once said: "Remember that all through history there have been tyrants and murderers and for a time they seem invincible... But in the end, they always fall. Always."

----------

Aaron Hotchner: Please tell me you haven't been there for the last four days.

Emily Prentiss: I heard you were flying back tonight.

Aaron Hotchner: Heard? How could you have heard a thing like that?

Emily Prentiss: This was dropped off today.

Aaron Hotchner: I appreciate your interest, Agent, but... Profiling is a specialty. We can't just let anyone who wants to give it a whirl.

Emily Prentiss: The I-80 killer? Coeds in Indiana?

Aaron Hotchner: Yes, I read it on the plane.

Emily Prentiss: They aren't blitz attacks. This guy's organized. He's a white male, early 30s, and a smooth talker, because even after 11 victims, he can still convince educated women who know there's a predator out there to get into his car.

Aaron Hotchner: How would you advise the police?

Emily Prentiss: I would stake out the Ranch House, a night club in Gary. They have a very popular ladies night on Thursdays. If you look closely, you'll see that 8 out of the 11 victims went missing on a Friday morning. So something gets this creep's motor running on Thursdays… This isn't a whirl, Agent Hotchner… I don't know how the paperwork got screwed up or maybe you believe my parents pulled some strings, which they didn't, by the way… I belong in this unit. And all I'm asking you for is the chance to show you that.

Aaron Hotchner: I still need to look into this. I'm not promising anything.

Emily Prentiss: Understood.

Aaron Hotchner: We brief new cases every morning at 10:00 am. You can see facilities management about a desk.

Emily Prentiss: You won't be sorry.
