Blood Hungry

While Gideon is sidelined on crutches at FBI headquarters, Hotchner and the BAU attempt to get inside the mind of a psychotic killer whose disorganized and erratic fantasies lead him to murder.
Set in:
Harrington, TN
Best Moments Between Characters:
  • At the end when Hotch and Gideon were talking in his office, Hotch asked Gideon about his "25 things to do before I die list" and what number he was at. Gideon told him he was at 24 and it was time to create a new list. Hotch told him he needed to complete 25 before he could move on and encouraged Gideon to call his son. When Hotch left the room, Gideon called his son Steven.

Best Lines:
  • (Gideon is sidelined with crutches and working out of Garcia's office.)
    Hotch: "How is it having Gideon around?"
    Garcia: "You can have him back whenever you would like."

  • Morgan: (While checking out Mary Mays' GPS) "These things cause more divorces than Internet porn."

  • Hotch: "Well, you managed to get on Garcia's nerves pretty thoroughly."
Gideon: "Who's Garcia?"
Hotch: "Garcia, the tech-girl?"
Gideon: "In the room with all the screens?"
Hotch: "Yes..."
Gideon: "Yeah, she is great!"

  • Gideon: (to Garcia hurriedly) "Give me the book, the big one, right there."
    Garcia: "Okay." (muttering under her breath) "Get the book, please, Penelope. Here you are. Thank you."

The turning point in the investigation:
Due to his crutches, Gideon set up "shop" in Garcia's office. He put his coffee cup down and saw a ring, which matched one of 3 circles found at each crime scene. He realized that the unsub was a cannibal and was taking blood and body parts.

Eddie Mays, 21, who is extremely psychotic and delusional. He had gone to college where he majored in comparative religion. Eddie got into methamphetamines and rock cocaine and suffered a mental breakdown because of it. His mother wasn't there for him during his breakdown and when he returned to town, he killed 3 people and kidnapped a 7 year-old boy, Wally. His mother cleaned the blood out of her refrigerator and hid the boy to hide her son's crimes.

Serial killer, Richard Trenton Chase, aka "The Vampire of Sacramento," was the basis for the episode
