The murder of a woman with a peculiar perfume brings back memories of a serial killer's M.O. from fifteen years prior. Goren's mentor, Declan Gage, who was one of the first criminal profilers, had a mental breakdown after failing to capture the killer then. He offers his help once his daughter becomes involved in this new case. The investigation becomes much more urgent after Eames is kidnapped and the evidence points to Goren's mentor.
