Jordy Raines, posing as a campus security guard, approaches Linda outside her sorority house and offers to come in and make sure the building is secure. He goes to a room where the girl is currently out and tells Linda that he’s studied all of the floor plans. He then opens the window and brings in a bag that he tossed up onto the roof earlier. Linda asks what he’s doing and Jordy takes out a knife as he explains it’s important to have the right tools and that he’s been planning for a long time...

Episode Quotes
Ryan: Where's Mason?
Debra: She's on her way back to Quantico. Apparently she put a former agent alone in a room with Joe Carroll, let him break three of his fingers. Turns out that's a no-no.
Ryan: Three, huh?

Mike: Good news, no dead puppies. Bad news... I think it's time to use that word nobody wants to use.
Debra: So, we have a cult.

Debra: Carroll's using Poe's work as a religion. He's speaking to people through Gothic Romanticism. The pathology of today's Internet techno-bred minds. He's created a new--a vacancy in our humanity. Find the ones with additional disorders--jackpot. Enter a handsome, charismatic man who can touch them, make them feel their lives for the first time. He conditions them. The only way to truly live is to kill. Or some crap like that.

Jacob: Joe said you'd be my type.
Emma: What's your type?
Jacob: Special.

Ryan: She almost died. The woman you profess to love.
Carroll: Umm, yeah, but she didn't. I was hoping you'd save her. A heroic victory by the leading man cements the love story.
Ryan: What if I hadn't arrived in time?
Carroll: Well, that's what makes the story so unpredictable. Toughen up, Ryan. You're dealing with depraved minds, sick and twisted. Jordy was a mere… well, puppy, compared to some of the games I have in store for you.
