  • Great episode. But also a disturbing one

    9.0
    These things happens... Daughter killed in an accident, father feels guilty for not preventing it, father gets depressed and delusional.



    What's disturbing though in this ep was the fact that he had access to guns. That's the difference with this country and others. The US has all these guns that makes depressing trauma situations like this much more dangerous.



    Unfortunately, a tragedy losing a child happens. It's just the way life is. But it's better to have these things happen in an unarmed environment.moreless

    I just started watching the series this summer, but for me, this was one of the best episodes so far. Mitch Pileggi is awesome as the unsub. The twist at the end is very cool, too, and may make you want to watch this one again.
  • Mitch Pileggi is the unsub

    This was an enjoyable episode and I was surprised to see the unsub was played by Mitch Pileggi who is Skinner from X files and because I know him from X files it was different to see him play this kind of role This unsub was crazy and he was shooting anyone and his hallucinations was causing him to shoot anyone The episode had a surprising twist at the end and it is one of the better episodes of the season.moreless

    i've watched this episode quite a lot and i still can't get enough of it. what surprised me the first time i watched it, was who the actor who played norman. i nearly fell out of my chair when i saw him and i'm like OH MY GOSH. THAT'S SKINNER FROM THE X-FILES
  • This really is a great example of why people watch this series. Not only was the crime disturbing, it made me emotional and sorry for the criminal himself.

    In this episode the BAU investigates a man who is shooting women who resembles his wife. Even through all the bad things the man has done, I couldn't help but have sympathy for him. The loss of a child really was just detrimental to the situation he already had. At the end, it was surprising to learn that he had already killed his family. The man really just seemed so normal that he possibly couldn't do something that horrible. I guess that what makes me wonder who out there has the capability of murder. If tonight episode was Jordan's last, than I think she leaves on a good note. I wasn't too fond of her, but now I actually like her. I also like how JJ came back at the end. Very sweet moment for the BAU. It's some of my favorite parts, but also the rarest to catch the entire team together and just happy together, not working on a case. It was a nice touch for such a sad episode.moreless
