This is about my 100th attempt at posting a review for this episode - idk wh y it isn't letting me.
Anyway, enough of that and onto the review itself - I thought this episode had some really good moments such as connecting the birthdays and deathdays on to one another and the whole reincarnation thing was interesting and pretty unique. I liked that aspect of it.
The negative for me was that there was no profiling. They just followed the birthdays and deathdays and all of a sudden we know who the ckiller is and we know who the future victims will be. They didn't believe they needed the BAU's help for that? Surely. It seems to me that the BAU's talents would be better suited to a different case that requires some actual profiling.
The most interesting thing about Season 8 (which has absolutely had a few disappointing episodes, some decent ones but no really amazing ones) is this copycat! I am REALLY loving this storyline an d I can't wait to see where it takes us next!
I wonder which crime he will copy next? Something tells me it is the puppets!
