Aaron Hotchner: So what do we think? Why is the unsub keeping Brooke alive? And how long do we think she has until he kills her?
Spencer Reid: Maybe he needs them alive to effect their transformation.
Derek Morgan: The change in the hair, the makeup, piercing the ears— that would only take a few hours.
David Rossi: He’s had her for almost 5 days.
Emily Prentiss: Ok, so maybe it’s about something more than just appearance. Maybe it’s something deeper.
Spencer Reid: On the phone she made it sound like she was being locked up, and she sounded drugged. These are control mechanisms used in cases of sexual slavery, mind control..
Derek Morgan: It’s brainwashing.
Aaron Hotchner: So he’s trying to break her down, make her surrender her identity.
David Rossi: That’s what he’s waiting for. That’s the version of them he wants to hold onto.
