Reid has what appears on the surface to be an Internet arranged blind date at an upscale restaurant with a young woman named Cat. It is, however, a supposed business date, with Reid pretending to be a potential client for her, one of the Dirty Dozen assassins, she the "Black Widow" of the bunch. In a break in the case, the team has determined that there are four assassins, all working independently, but acting like spokes on a wheel to a central axle, that axle being someone code named the Snowman. However, she, being good at her job, knows that the meeting is a set-up. When Reid and Cat come clean to each other, what results is a thirty minute game of psychological cat and mouse between the two. The outcome is affected by how well Reid and the team have Cat profiled, how well she in turn has calculated the strategic moves in their chess match, plus a little, or perhaps a lot, of what Reid just went through visiting with his mother on his recent time off from work.
