the greeks translated "puppets" as "neurospasta," which literally means string-pulling. and throughout time they've been used as a method to tell kings a story so the subjects didn't have to speak directly to him. it was a way to hear the truth. it seems like this unsub's doing something similar, using his puppets to tell his story. he can't be controlling them by hand. no, he probably built some sort of contraption. reid: and he trying to lift his victims. that could explain why they discarded the men. what do you see? ey were too heavy. well, i'm checking the licenses of our victims, and each one weighed less than the previous one. you know, if he's making human marionettes, that also explains why he's stuffing his victims into boxes. it's like a sick toy chest. so he is dehumanizing them, but he's just not killing them. he's turning them into his playthings. a father and son were just abducted from a parking lot at gunpoint. a witness saw a man force them into a car. dave, you and blake go check it out.
6:40 pm
and puppeteers in the area. ok. let's to it again. should we break their jaws? no. no. i need to hear them. please, adam, let us down. no. you guys have to do it right this time. you have to save them. from what? from the robber. i told you. and... again. ok, there are 5 puppeteers/ marionetters in the area. any of them recently released from prison? no. they're working kids' parties and at hospitals. what about someone who had a traumatic incident with a brunette girl? that's kind of specific. hold on, let me patch in morgan and jj. hey, we're at the clothing store. we got the names of 5 people who left numerous messages for tucker this week. give them to me. all right, we got sam holby,
6:41 pm
vincent lang, matt parker, and a jill olger. and no, and i'm cross-checking those with hotch's list of puppeteers. and no. so i've got 8 more names, some written on pads in the back, others are frequent customers. penelope, we need you to trace the phone lines here, too, see if this guy tucker called the unsub today. give me your money. give it now. that's your cue. what's my cue? you're supposed to say... "i don't have any money," after he says, "give it to me now." say it again, mr. conrad. give me your money. give it now. i don't have any money. you're lying. i saw you with it. dad, just give him the money.
6:42 pm
[grunting] mitch, mitch, what are you doing? you're supposed to save my father. my name is not mitch, and i'm not gonna say these lines. ohh! now... if you don't save him, then he is gonna die. is that what you want? aah! people, it's going to be a full house. so, push through it. we just came from the parking lot where the father and son were abducted. it looks like the unsub might be on the surveillance camera.
6:43 pm
mm. [ring] garcia. yes, sir. were there any incidents involving a father and son in the puppeteers' histories that you found? father and son. ok. no, it's coming up empty. what about 20 or 30 years ago? well, there was a pretty famous puppeteer in the late fifties named alex rain. he died in a robbery. his son witnessed it. what was the son's name? adam rain. mom died 10 years ago. cross-check adam's name with the names of the patrons in the clothing store. oh, i got a big old hit. ok, mr. rain called tucker, the owner, 40 times in the last month. and check this. his father was most well-known for a pair of puppets named mitch and steph. the male one had dark black hair, the female was a redhead. you have an address? last known was a building on pine street, used to be his father's theater. come on, dave. garcia: and guess what he drives.
6:44 pm
two minutes until curtain. you ready? it's gonna be right this time. let's hope so. break a leg. ladies and gentlemen, truth is what the storyteller brings you. he holds up a mirror to your soul and reflects back the truth of what happened,
6:45 pm
and so without further ado, the rain theater proudly continues that gre tradition in this very special matinee performance of "the robbery." a family tale of love... and redemption. somebody... help us.

6:51 pm
like a peter pan syndrome. and if there was damage to the prefrontal cortex, he might lack rational thought and empathy. so he's a psychopath who thinks he's a kid again and wants to avenge his father's death. if the robbery that killed the father happened in the theater... he's reenacting that moment. give me your money. give it now.

6:53 pm
he never told you that the puppets weren't real. that's not true. it is. and that's why steph and mitch couldn't save him that day. they only moved when he made them. you're lying. adam, don't do to these people what the robber did to your father. you can save them.
