I really got the feeling that this was Criminal Minds getting back to its best here. A gruesome, gritty crime and some actual profiling thought processes. Loved Rossi coming a bit more to the forefront - I do feel he is underused. Nice touch at the end with him and Hotch at the football.
Seaver continues to stand pretty much on the sidelines. Got to feel sorry for the actress because that character really is a waste of space which hasn't been developed in any way.
Talbot reminded me of the Spaulding character in the first season of Without a Trace. I thought the actor played it really well. Ending was creepy, but I loved it!
