  • the best part the restaurant

    4.5
    i enjoy the restaurant scenes but just that
  • Oh well, he must have a twin, let him go then!

    8.5
    Interesting episode but pretty standard up until the end. I'm in two minds about the ending either its really good or really bad, I just can't make my mind up! I'm interested to see the next episode because the twins twist is really good, but the execution of the storyline was really bad. I just don't think that after all these crimes they would just shrug and let this man go instantly just because his prints didn't match those at the scene, they would have held him for longer than that, just to make sure there wasn't a mix up with the prints, before going 'oh well, he must have a twin, let him go then' Also wouldn't Garcia have dug up the whole twins thing earlier?moreless
  • Not the best

    8.0
    Not the best episode but like the to be continued part as from what I read the mother plays a key role. Couldv'e it been done better sure.



    And for all those who watch it just to give it 1 or 2 and says it's my favorite show: How can it be your favorite show if you hate every episode?
  • Unoriginal

    6.5
    So, they're going to play up the twin angle? Every show has done this story, and it's never any good.



    It was not a bad premiere, but the killer just did not hook me in. Not scary, not entertaining, not a lot of thought put into this villain which is wrong considering this was the season premiere.
  • Fingerprints

    8.5
    I always thought different people have different fingerprints. Since Hycanith below said they do, I went to google on it and i was right. They have similiar/alike prints but not the same. Anyways they figured out its twins because they caught someone who looks like Wallace but with different prints. Hycanith must have missed out that last part of the episode.



    Besides that, i generally enjoy the episode. It would work with lesser gore to bring out the storyline tho. How can he has such a huge rotting human head and no one notices the smell? And what happens to the body??moreless
