  • Started off great

    Started off great, but then spiralled into silliness to explain the killers motive.

    I've really liked it!

    It had its moments, but this episode proved to be far too formulaic for my liking. I don't want to be a Debbie Downer, I have liked some Criminal Minds episodes this season, but this was forgettable.
  • Spooky!!!

    Amazing episode... Very well directed... From start to finish had me completely hooked... Especially the call at the end... Could be nothing of course but can't wait for CM to return...



    On a side note Ried seems to have gotten way more confident... Seems to be an entirely different person from the Ried of season one... And having him shoot the unsub to save Blake was nice...
  • Creepy

    It was a bit of a creepy episode. The phone calls were creepy and the fact that someone murders kids is always creepy and evil. It's sad how the unsub got so bad because of his childhood, but it still doesn't make it right to kill other children.

    I like it when CM has these really horrible scenarios of parents losing their kids as it goes against the natural order of things. It's horrible, but still makes good episodes.
