    Without a doubt this is a Criminal Minds classic.

    The unsub is genuinely freaking me and I doubt I will have a good sleep tonight, for those sulphur-burnt eyes and mouth and hand will be haunting me. His character is brilliantly fleshed out; he has both tragic past and terrifying present.

    Those videos, they are brilliant. Decidedly demented, yes, but brilliant. How the producers managed to get those past the radar is beyond me, but I have to say kudos to them. The victims, I feel sorry for them, seriously. And how the daddy reacts at the end is epic, truly frightening.

    The team, too, gives fresh touch for this episode. Reid, the usually logic-bound guy, sparks some emotion for Prentiss' fallout, and that is exceptional. Most shows usually shrug off a turmoil like that, but not Criminal Minds.

    Once again, Proof reminds me why I watch this show.

    Solid epic 10.
