Whoever is behind the shipping container has more than one partner. Prentiss got the container back to BAU, and the guy comes in talking about "the brass," and Prentiss talks to him like an infant. Uh, the brass doesn't want them solving this case with a body count at 24 and counting?

Bailey is a true pain in the ass. All the cost for the shipping container will come from BAU's budget. I don't think he actually asked. I think he suggested it.

The team has the video of the guy's choice. What they find is another kill kit. All of their cases are connected.

Rossi is annoyed that they've given the killer a name.

Garcia calls Rossi about the information she received. He wants her back at this job, but she wants to talk about his grief. Her therapist is helping her with years of trauma, and when she looks at Rossi and has since after Krystall's diagnosis...

Garcia misses the team everyday, but she doesn't miss the work.

Erectile dysfunction by way of back injury is likely the reason for the guy to be doing this at all, but he took a woman named Michelle since she is lighter weight and easier to carry. He's taking out his frustration on those who can still perform. Michelle's husband knows of a guy who they used to use who suffered a back injury, and they took another path.

Someone calls Garcia wondering if she decrypted the information. She's the only one who can, and since she didn't, people are going to die.

He didn't pause as requested, and he didn't change locations, among other things. Elias is going to talk him through something when Robert says he can't.

JJ and Will talk about their sex lives and fears, and when she walks into the office, she's got a big smile on her face.

Rebecca has news on Bailey. There's no money in serial killers but there's plenty of it in domestic terrorism. Which is such a crock of shit.

They're on the docket to be reassigned, replace, and retired. It's always under attack, which is kind of annoying. The team talks about what it means, and Prentiss says that a serial killer network IS domestic terrorism. They're racing against the clock, but they've got their secret weapon.

Criminal Minds: Evolution Season 1 Episode 2 Quotes

JJ: If Sicarius and his followers are as good at hacking as they are at murder, we're in trouble.
Rossi: Who's Sicarius?
JJ: Uh, Tara says that's what they're naming the shipping container unsub.
Rossi: I'm not gonna name this jagoff. Fuckhead, OK? Call him that. I want to know how to catch him.

Prentiss: You can't be serious.
Bailey: I'm just the messenger, but the higher-ups were very clear. All costs associated with moving the shipping container come out of the BAU's budget.
Tara: Director, with all due respect, this team has done everything you've asked. We've done more with less. We've scrimped. We've saved.
Prentiss: And, as section chief, I am allowed discretionary spending.
Bailey: I made that point. They said you don't have that much discretion. I'm sorry, Emily. You can't win against the bean counters. [walks away]
Tara: What a crock of shit.
Prentiss: It's like we're being punished for being good at our job.
