- Cuban.

- What's the word, Sawyer?

Looks like a match.

Yeah, ilk Joe.

We've got a series.

Same M. O.,

same signature, no DNA.

Not one goddamn shred.

You said that already.

I'm doing everything I can.

Goddamn f***ing a**hole.

(under breath) F***.

I need to go see him.


I think it's a mistake.

You're entitled to your own opinion.

Well, let me rephrase that.

I think it's a big mistake.

Apart from time and resources,

it's bringing an unknown into a...

- into a really bad situation,

- Not unknown at all.

I've worked with him before,

and he's actually my friend.

- You said he's unstable.

- I did not, Katherine.

I said he's had a hard time.

It's too early

for a Hail Mary, Joe.

You will learn it's never too early

for one of those.

Goddamn, are you seeing this?

I mean, look at all this. "

pretty green sh*t.

How long has

he lived out here?

Two years.

Ever since his daughter Emma died.

Leukemia. In his arms.

Gave up his medical practice.

Hell, he gave up everything.

What happened to his wife?

Well, therein lies

the truth about tragedies.

They bring some people

closer together...

...drives others apart.

There it is.

Do you mind staying here?

Let me talk to him alone?

- You could have left me in the city.

- I could've...

But you would have missed

the pretty green sh*t.



- John? It's Joe.

- Yeah, I know.

Are you gonna open the door?

I'd like to talk to you,

Nat interested.

John, I just drove three hours

to come and see you.

Come on. You know me well enough

to know that I'm not leaving,

And I'll kick down this door

if I have to.

A real pain in the ass.

Yeah. I've heard that before.

You know, I sent you a letter

like a year ago. Did you get it?


What did it say, John?

"No parent should

outlive a child. "

- So you've been holed up here.

- Uh-huh.

I see you've settled in.

- It's a beautiful day out there.

- That's what they tell me.

So you don't get out much?

- Do you want a soda?

- No, thank you.

I don't have cigarettes.

I gave them up a few months ago.

Meet my new addiction.

Laura and the kid okay?

Yeah, they're good.

Thank you.

Heard from Elizabeth yet?


You will.

So, besides wanting

to see you...

I've got a situation that

I'd like you to take a look at.

- I could just tell you about the victims,

- I'm not interested.

By the way,

who's your girlfriend?

That is my loyal partner,

Agent Cowles,

who apparently doesn't listen

to a f***ing word I say.

S.A.C., Joe.

I thought you might

want to take the call.

Excuse me, John.

- Hi.

- Hi.

- I brought the case tiles.

- It wasn't necessary.

The Agency has

changed the guidelines

for the way we break down

the cases.

It makes them more readable.

Oh. Well, that's a relief.

We gotta go.

Three murders,

Identical M,O.

Agent Cowles.

I'll leave the case files here.


You okay?

If you change your mind

about this... know where to ind me.

- Hey, Joe.

- John.

I make no promises.

I'll stay maybe one day.

Maybe one week.

Deal. No promises.

- You knew I'd come back?

- I had high hopes.

You remember Agent Cowles?

I should say "Dr. " Cowles,

- with a doctorate in...?

- Psychopathology,

She was to become a professor

before the bureau snagged her.

- You gave up academia for this madhouse?

- They let me carry a gun.

Wow! So sexy.

You two will

make a good team.

John, you know when and Katherine, you

know why someone's about to do something.

Run this through until we come out.

Dr. Clancy, before we go upstairs,

with all due respect,

I don't hold an ounce of confidence
