  • an unsub who's motivated to kill in order to escape the reality of his poverty - that's creepy

    Viewers will all definitely feel indignant of criminals who commit murder as they ransack their victims' homes. What's unusual about this unsub though is that he chooses to do so not just to rob and kill. He wants to pretend that he had a nice home and bed for the night - even if the fantasy will just last for a few hours. That's so pathetic. His half-brother chose to work as a lowly farm worker in order to earn his living. I think it's a good thing that the show mentioned the story of the half-brother of the unsub. This way, the story won't turn into a racist plot to undermine the lifestyle of poor Hispanics in California. This is purely the work of a deranged man who doesn't want to sweat his way out of poverty.
