The BAU is sent to Dallas to investigate a series of number of gunshot murders that take place at a plaza. They determine that the Unsub is a marksman, and that the motive for the murders is to find and locate the Unsub's wife so that he can kill her as well. Morgan and JJ show up at the Unsub's office, and the man flees, but gets hit by a truck and is killed. It turns out he hired one of his black ops firm's snipers to do the killing for him. Just when the hired sniper lines up his sights to take a shot at the Unsub's wife, Hotch shoots and kills him.
Hotch: A sniper can wait up to 72 hours without sleeping.
Rossi: That's part of their training. They can stay awake for 72 hours and remain completely focused on their target.
Hotch: By using a mental exercise called "fantasy integration". A sniper creates a scenarios involving a target that keeps that person at the forefront of their mind.
Morgan: Often they'll imagine a place where they're with the target, doing something together that takes time. For example, building a car.
JJ: For some, the fantasy begins the minute they're assigned a target. Then nothing will distract them.
