  • A disturbing case with the worse kind of un-sub.

    An episode which shows clearly how being a member of the BAU affects the teams personal lives. (if they've managed to have one!) To see the pain on Hotchs' face as he realised that he hadn't been there for his son was heartbreaking. Balancing work life and family is the toughest thing for anyone but especially in a job ike that. It was nice to see Gideon reach out to him, even though Hotch didn't actually talk about the problem, he must appreciate having someone there who he can talk to.

    The case was disturbing, anything involving children is bound to be. But imagine being a child and being forced to hurt your mum. It's a parents worse nightmare not being able to protect them. The humilation the people in the bank must have felt having to undress is awful and the family of the bank manager must be in a living hell.

    It often annoys me when shows have the case parallel in to the lives of the characters, but I liked the way they did it in this episode.
