Ozona, Texas is a small town where everybody knows everybody else so when children start dying it is incredibly difficult for the locals to accept that one of their own must be responsible for the young bodies found battered to death in the woods.
With the body count at three over a very short period of time, the BAU check all viable possibilities and come up with nothing except an old man from an equally old house who is a local legend of whom the children are all frightened. Talking to the children, Morgan tells them to use 'The Buddy System' - to never be alone and make sure somebody always knows where they are. A five o' clock curfew is imposed on the kids but there is still more death.
When the old house is searched and meals for the elderly are found there but the corpse of the owner is found in the woodlands, the team have a suspect, the school guidance counsellor whose prints are all over the trays containing the lunch but he is not the killer, the killer, in many ways is far more terrifying as you will see when you watch this episode.
On a sad note, Lola Glaudini left the show in this episode when her character of Elle Greenaway found that the job was simply too much for her following the home invasion and shooting from Season One and so we await a new agent and wonder how the team will progress from here?
An average episode with a couple of good points, particularly from Shemar Moore and Lola Glaudini as their characters struggled with the evil of hunting and child killer and trying to function when evil has already invaded your life.
