* Charlie: Big things disguised as little things.

* Charlie: A mathematical determination of who will or won’t be a winner.

* Larry: Why? To what end? This work is just a self-fulfilling prophecy.

* Larry: Real science is discovery not invention, the truths are there whether we find them or not.

Synopsis: Two security guards investigate an alarm. They find a dead body. Don and his team arrive and are informed that the murder victim is part of a think tank and does classified work. The deceased man’s hard drive was wiped clean and they did not steal the information on it. Charlie will try to reverse engineer the program to restore the files. David interviews the dead man’s wife. Don finds out what the victim was working on and tells Charlie. Charlie discovered a sabermetrics program that he was also developing. At Dr. Hoke’s office, his assistant is working on the computer. He’s not aware that the victim was a baseball fan. Larry comes upon Charlie and Larry hates sabermetrics. Back at Don’s office he and David bring each other up to speed. There’s an insurance policy. Don and David pay a visit to Mrs. Hoke’s boyfriend. It leads nowhere. Charlie analyzes the computer and is interrupted by Scott, the assistant. Charlie and Larry go to Dr. Hoke’s funeral but they are the only ones in attendance. At the house, Charlie works on the case. He learns that his parents nearly divorced when he went to Princeton. The conversation leads Charlie to a discovery. He was trying to apply sabermetrics to real people. Don and Charlie talk with Scott again. From what they learn, the data he was using to determine people’s success was cut off. Don and David go back to the crime scene to take a second look. David finds a wire sticking out of the alarm box. When he pulls the face off he finds evidence of surveillance equipment. Don and Terry talk to the deceased boss about the surveillance and the program he was working on. He disagreed with the statistical analysis and how it was being done. But ultimately, he owns the software. The FBI says it was not their surveillance either. The tech says it was piggybacked, there is no prints. However, the unit was bought by the boyfriend. Don heads back to the boyfriend again. The listening device was Mrs. Hoke’s lawyer’s idea. They interview the wife again. The lawyer turns over the surveillance to prove her client’s innocence. Charlie analyzes the keystrokes and the person who erased the files also had access to the computer at work. Don arrests his assistant for the murder. Before he’s taken away, Charlie asks him why he killed him. His formula would have prevented his school from getting a computer lab. He wanted to stop him from the Nazi’s all over again. Larry and Charlie chat in the garage and get philosophical.

* Gideon: “It is better to be violent if there is violence in our hearts than to put on the cloak of non-violence to cover impotence.” – Mahatma Gandhi

* Hotch: “I object to violence because when it appears to do good, the good is only temporary. The evil it does is permanent.” – Mahatma Gandhi

Synopsis: A man sits in a chair in his boxers. He starts taping foil all over the windows. It’s raining outside. A hooded man hails a cab. The cabbie pulls over to drop him off.

Reid takes a closer look at the weapon the unsub stabbed in the victim’s ear and it’s made of flint. Hotch calls Garcia and asks her to check if the victims have ever been charged with a crime.

The tip is on a vehicle and it gives them a possible suspect. They hit his address with a search warrant. He’s not there but a large cache of guns and a defeated girlfriend are. Charlie gets a call, there is a new shooting. David and Terry interview a victim at the scene. Edgerton teaches Charlie about sniper techniques. Terry informs them there are two snipers. They catch the first suspect and interrogate him. Turns out he’s an informant. As the team patrols, it’s a ghost town. No one is willing to go out and possibly be shot. Alan brings Don lunch at work. He expresses his concerns about Charlie going to scenes. There is another shooting. Edgerton thinks Charlie might have been right all along. At the house, Charlie and Amita continue to try and crunch numbers. Back at Don’s office, Charlie does a presentation of the data, they are increasing in rate. His analysis demonstrates that it was a different shooter for each attack. It’s a chain of copycats. Don regroups and tries to solve each case individually. He solves each case. However, more cases are happening. Charlie thinks that some cases are linked to one sniper and others are just viral activity. He wants to learn to shoot a rifle to understand the mechanics. Alan and Larry play chess together. At the range, Charlie isn’t doing too well until Don tries a different technique and he hits the bullseye. At the office, the skill level of each shooter is assessed. He has detected a pattern that four shootings were done by the same person. The team narrows their search to try and find a common denominator. Don changes focus from the victims to where the shots were fired as it wasn’t about the victims. They were chosen at random. They come up with a suspect, Nathan. David interviews his mother and she kicked him out just before the shootings started. Information comes in about the suspect. He also picks a new location to shoot from. The locations he’s shooting from are failed jobs. They narrow down to two locations and request LAPD back up. Terry spots the van at their location. They start clearing the area. SWAT arrives and so does a helicopter. The suspect looks out the window and sees police and no targets. Until a car pulls up with Charlie. David gets him on the ground as the sniper starts shooting at him. Edgerton was waiting though and he takes the shot and gets the sniper. Back at the house Don talks with Alan. They just talk about his trip to the range and choose not to tell Alan that Charlie almost got shot. The three work together staining the house.
