  • The teacher teachers the student

    This was a brilliant episode with a young unsub that has a mentor who teaches him throughout the episode to kill the unsub escalates and becomes a better killer as it goes further into the episode.At first I didn't expect him to kill the woman at the beginning and I didn't expect him to have a teacher.With the first kill been sloppy and unorganised the team soon realised a difference when the unsub's teacher killed and that he knew what he was doing.The younger unsub Toby got to cocky and didn't listen taking someone he knew and then partnership broke up when Toby hit his partner with a hammer but was killed himself not standing a chance.The team eventually saved the girl with Morgan ending up having to kill the older unsub.The episode also ended with the start of things to come when Reid is playing softball with Morgan against secret service and Reid wins them the game someone takes photos of each team member individually meaning that someone is planning something and maybe has something to do with the murder that is similar to the silencers that Hotch was called about at the end.Overall the season is just getting better by the episode and now there is something extra to look forward to.
