Review

Rating: 3 out of 5.

It's an endless source of good fortune that, in the gory world of the Criminal Minds gang, serial killers tend to commit elaborate and unusual crimes on a frequent basis.

Their latest case takes them to the outskirts of Las Vegas, where two women are found drowned in the middle of nowhere. The killer has helpfully scrawled '2 out of 10' on a nearby sign, which suggests to the team that there are eight more victims to come. They're no slouches when it comes to this stuff.

Meanwhile, genius profiler Dr. Spencer Reid uses the trip to Nevada as an opportunity to visit his mother, whose mental health problems seem to have improved. But why is she being so distant? Life is seldom straightforward for an FBI murder expert.
