The #RCP team analyse and discuss the penultimate episode of season 1 of the Netflix show Mindhunter.

The FBI profilers interview another prolific serial killer who doesn't want to talk. Holden goes on the proactive and goes "off-script" to rapport with him, a tactic that has lasting repercussions.

Our team debate the merits of his strategy and behaviour to gain insight and potentially useful and actionable intelligence to assist operationally. Or is Holden becoming a liability potentially putting their pioneering work at risk?

The team gets into it.

This episode is dedicated to the memory of Robert Ressler and Roy Hazelwood, two great pioneers of profiling.

“He who fights with monsters should look to it that he himself does not become a monster . . . when you gaze long into the abyss the abyss also gazes into you” - Friedrich Nietzche
