Serial killer Tobias Hankle, a religious fanatic, keeps kidnapped Dr. Spencer Reid in a wood cabin, and forces the brilliant, terrified kid to 'confess' by belting his head and bare foot, then injects his own addictive drug; in trance Spencer thinks back to his own dysfunctional mother when he was a minor, till he could get her committed. The team learns Tobias was systematically abused by his Bible-obsessed father Charles, killed the fiend but developed a split personality, including his father's abusive one as Raphael, an angel of violent 'divine' vengeance. Tobias arranges a web-cam to the team showing Reid in his power, ordered to pick the next victim from his six profiling colleagues in order to be allowed saving another, but refusing to take the psycho's word. When he chooses Hotch next time, misquoting from Genesis for an absurd reason, Aaron himself cracks that clue...
Did You Know?
Mandy Patinkin was dressed in warm clothes during the final scenes because he was going to be performing a concert in New York soon after and was afraid of getting sick. The temperature was 22 degrees Fahrenheit (-5 degrees Celsius). See more
When Tobias is taking Reid's shoes off and Reid begins quoting the Bible, you can see a crew member through the crack in the barn door behind Tobias in one shot. The camera turns back to Reid, then back to Tobias and the crew member is gone- you can see trees/shrubbery. See more
