I was really upset last week when Maeve was killed. Fuming! And I had no real expectations that things would get better this week, but somehow they did. I even kinda of sort of liked the unsub. Reid-centric episodes are always both sad and sweet-just like Reid.
I'm glad this episode didn't make me feel worse, although from other reviews and comments, others felt really sad. I felt comforted. At least by the episode's end there were a few characters still shining through an otherwise grey, cloudy season of Criminal Minds.
