  • A war veteran suffering from PTSD hiding out in construction sites, murdering anyone that comes inside his hiding place. Reid clearly shows signs of PTSD that only a moron would miss and we see hopeful signs that the BAU members are not morons after all.

    I never realized a PTSD victim could suffer to such a degree that they could actually spend days on a murdering spree without waking up and realizing where they were and what was going on -- at least periodically - enough to call 911 for help or something. I was under the impression they could suffer for a few minutes, maybe hours, but then snap out of it. But apparently, PTSD can cause a reaction that goes on for days. Meanwhile Reid shows obvious signs of having PTSD as well as possible drug addiction? Hopefuly they will get him help!
