Episode Summary

EDIT

A Colorado town celebrates the quarter-century anniversary of its time capsule by opening it. The macabre contents, however, occasion a call to the BAU, rather than a pleasant trip down memory lane.

  • Fake rape w/ eye witness???

    6.5
    I watched this episode without subtitles and I'm not a native speaker so maybe I missed something, but how come the old fisherman saw a girl being sexually assaulted, called the cops on that, and later on we find out the girl pressed fake charges?
  • Why is the character of 'Alex' still on the show.

    1.0
    I stumbled across this episode tonight of Criminal Minds and was shocked to still see Triplehorn. She spoke and ruined the scene and again. What is going on? This can't be the writers and producers know how dead her role is to this show No chemistry, no life, no passion. What were they thinking?
  • Ageless Beginning

    6.5
    Who knew that 25 year old concrete on a busy walkway doesn't age? Nary a stain or wee crack. Suspiciously, the interred time capsule emerged 'shiny and new'. Being so accustomed to Criminal Minds professional presentation and keen attention to detail, the lack of 'evidence of time' was glaring.
  • Very good storyline!

    This episode had a storyline that was unique and very interesting. I absolutely love the way the first scene was done, as well as the way the last scenes were done. It came together very well.



    Some really interesting events took place and I love the connection between all of the victims. It made the episode a little unpredictable, although you always had a feeling that the wife was gonna be in trouble, from the very first moment when the unsub told her not to come in.



    Nonetheless, the case was very fascinating. I wish the next episode wasn't so far away!moreless

    So basically upstanding citizens lead a double life & the unsub (Tory) decapitated them, flashback to 1988, when Tory spent a night in jail & heard Leanne say that she was raped by Wade Burke. But actually they were in love & had a argument that night & she made up that rape charge, fast forward to 2013 & Leanne & Tory are married. But Tory was still going to make them pay for their hypocrisy because they were dirty. Come on Wanda, you cant be anti drugs when your growing your own stash in your backyard. Anyway Leanne went into Tory's garage opened up the freezer & found the heads. Tory walked in (wish you hadn't seen that). Then you find out about Leanne's parents especially her father making a deal for $30,000 to keep quiet about the rape. Forward to the ending Tory didn't know that his wife Leanne made up the rape charge until the end & telling him that she was in love with Wade back in 1988 didn't help. Just before he tries to decapitate Leanne the FBI team arrives at the scene, the head in the beginning belongs to Wade. Thumbs Up. (Wanda was Pamela Bellwood from Dynasty).moreless
