  • Strangely enough, it touches me

    2 men find each other and are bonded by their love of raping women. On 1 level, I am disgusted. On another level, I find the last scene between the criminals touching because they had to say goodbye to each other. The episode title is certainly fitting. They really were soul mates.
    This episode had a different format from the other episodes. We start with the arrest of the suspect and then more is revealed as we watch the episodes. There was a lot of focus on the suspect (we even see his flashbacks) and the unsub is his partner (since we start out the episode already knowing he did it and the police just do not have the evidence to convict him).
    Possibly the funniest line from the series comes from Rossi about Reid and I was laughing so hard even though this episodes wasn't particularly humorous.
    I was pleasantly surprised by this episode.
