Criminal Minds: The Last Word

Paget Brewster joins the cast as Emily Prentiss, a new agent assigned to the Behavioral Analysis Unit. To her surprise, she has to immediately fight suspicions of nepotism (her parents are high-powered diplomats) as she was placed in the BAU without Hotch or Gideon being notifed.

Meanwhile, the team is dispatched to Saint Louis to track down two serial killers operating concurrently but independently. The killers' M.O. and victims are vastly different from one another, yet the team discovers a surprising connection.

Episode Quotes
Hotch: What can I do for you?
Emily: Uhh, well, I-I guess I was hoping you could tell me where to put my stuff.
Hotch: Sorry?
Emily: I-I'm supposed to start here today at the BAU.
Hotch: There's been a mistake.
Emily: I don't think so, sir.
Hotch: There's definitely been a mistake.

Reid: When Mill Creek kills, the Hollow Man shoots another prostitute.
Morgan: So, one doesn't want to be outdone by the other? Sounds like sibling rivalry to me.
Hotch: They've been killing independently of each other for a year now.
Gideon: With each kill, they're learning something... from the other.
