EDIT

The BAU is puzzled when a well-known motivational speaker disappears. He was, after all, their preferred UnSub in the murder of one of the participants in a recent conference he gave in Seattle.

    love Garcia sometimes she needs to be more natural like in the 5 previos season: love her perky person, sometimes she needs tobe less exageratewith gestures, but is the light of the show

    An interesting case here, and while not totally original, there was not the usual feeling of "we've been here before" in my mind throughout the entire show. That was fine, but a bit too storyline devoted at the end. Not really interested in hearing about Shemar Moore's daddy issues.

    I really enjoyed this episode. I really like unsubs who are people who think they're doing the right thing because of something inside them twisting their reality into something which doesn't jive with the rest of us. The use of synesthesia was a brilliant touch as was the play on words of 'See their Evil'.



    I also liked it how the kidnapped guy was able to keep himself under control and used his public speaking skills to try to get the guy to stop. Usually the victims are freaking out so I liked getting a relatively calm one.moreless

    Very entertaining episode, very well written, i'm starting to like the character of Alex Blake, Love the ending when Garcia & Derek went to the Embassy & Derek made his speech. Nice twist at the end with The Silencer. But i thought he was dead. I guess not.
