He continues intriguing me in each episode, even when his appearances are brief and not Hotch-centred. I think his character is a vital part of the team. He is so professional and I didn't find it surprising at all that he had to make the assessments.
I liked the entire episode, especially when Hotch was talking to Shelley. It was so heartbreaking and real. I also liked when Rossi and Morgan were concerned about Hotch, that suffers secretly.
