    very very good episode, it had the "early seasons" feel to it! Although I am wondering if this story line will be continued.

    I saw tonight's episode and it rocked. Sqweegel proved to be interesting. He raised a lot of questions about himself: Who is he? How did he know the icons he killed harbored secrets? What is the symbolism behind his suit? What is his motive for the killings? What did he mean when he said "I Am No One?" I hope we see him again. He could be the biggest mystery since the Miniature Killer. If he does return, I hope it will bring a CSI/Criminal Minds crossover. If anyone could crack his mind and find out who he is, it is the BAU Team.

    Very interesting episode and yes. the storyline will be continued, that is the idea. Sometimes this season long storyline is carried over to more than one season.

    I think the orange peels will be explained in the next episodes.

    But I have to admit it was a pretty creepy episode and the idea of the Squweegel killing in the plain daylight in a car wash makes the whole case pretty damn scary and the killer a monster.

    I saw less people investigating, it was only Ray, Catherine, Nick and Greg. But it was okay, as long as I don't see annoying Hodges around all the time it's fine.

    And yes, this got the feel of the first seasons. Actually, it reminded me of that Nick's stalker guy episode - which is mentioned by Catherine here.

    It was a very good episode. Hopefully Sqweegel will return.

    How many of you based off of this episode will take a look at Zuiker's Level 26 digi-novels, considering the character of Sqweegel came from there? Or are you already familiar with the character because you've either read the Dark Chronicles novels or checked out Level 26.com? I'm curious.

    Great episode best of the season so far and of course sqweegel will be back. At first I was like do we need another super criminal for the csi's to fight but if the stories are going to be this good the answer is yes.

    This episode was one of the best episodes in recent seasons. THis had the old season CSI feel to it. This serial killer is new, exciting, and frickin' creepy! I'm excited to see how they play this out, and what happens. This episode had my heart pounding, and I loved it! That serial killer/stalker, really creeped me out!

    I watched the episode with my sister and said almost the exact same thing! I just thought that this serial killer would an interesting crossover opportunity for CSI and Criminal Minds!

    I read the book Level 26 and I've also checked out Level 26.com. It was an interesting digi-novel but in my opinion, I don't think it packed the punch that Zuiker intended. I'm not familiar with the Dark Chronicles novels but now I'm interested in reading them. I find Sqweegel to be more compelling than Dexter Morgan, and that says alot as I'm a huge fan of the show. I do see Sqweegel returning and my guess is that it will be during the sweeps period. I agree with Stellamagic that the Sqweegel storyline would make an excellent crossover with Criminal Minds. IMO, since Sqweegel is someone who is highly intelligent and doesn't have any known identity, I think that he would be the first serial killer that the BAU couldn't create a profile for.

    The Dark Chronicles is the trilogy Zuiker is writing, the first two of which have now been released. If you read Level 26 then you have read the Dark Chroniclesm as the trilogy is about Steve Dark. The second book is out now. They've also been called the Dark Series, Level 26 digi-novels, etc.

    I completely agree with everyone, this really did feel like an early season episode - even my dad who doesn't like CSI, watched this and couldn't wait to find out who Sqweegal was and then he was devastated when it wasn't revealed. Can't wait for the next episode!
