  • Trivia

    • The tool that they had trouble identifying because it left parallel cuts is called pattern shears. It is a type of scissors used to cut paper or velum patterns for stained glass. One side has two parallel blades that the other side presses the paper into as it cuts. This ensures that the pattern pieces are slightly smaller than drawn so there will be space between the glass pieces to fit lead came or copper foil and solder when pieced together. The width between the parallel blades is slightly different depending on the technique being used. (Lead came is thicker so needs more space than copper foil.) His was broken in half and he used the double bladed side, thus the parallel cuts.

    • In actuality, if Hotch were to attempt his underwater shooting, his gun would jam after the first shot because the mechanism can't cycle properly when fired underwater.

      Even worse, the sound of the gunshot would burst his eardrums, and might even cause serious internal injuries. Shockwaves travel much faster in water than air, which increases the damage they cause.
