Criminal Minds just keeps getting better and better this season... Less unsub and more profilers (although less Reid... my one complaint for this week)... The storyline was good and so was the flashbacks about Rossi... The unsub and the crimes weren't unusual as one reviewer said but wasn't boring (like some of the episodes from s6 and s7)...
Enjoying it this season... Thank u writers... Finally... :)
Today, I definitely think I enjoyed the back-story for Rossi much more than I enjoyed the case, even thought the case was a good one. A killer cleansing the city of homeless people is - admittedly, the not very unique storyline - but nonetheless, a very enjoyable and interesting case as well.
There was an absolutely hilarious moment when Reid was like - "She was in the city for 2 months and didn't make any friends. I thought that only happened to me!" - or something along those lines, and I thought that comment was really funny and I was laughing!
The back story was phenomenal and very insightful - and I think the 'dedictaion' for the next book was perfectly incorporated into this episode. Would love to read that book!
Keep it up, Criminal Minds! Am definitely looking forward to the next one!
The Character, Rossi, is the main reason I am a fan of Criminal minds. Awesome episode! But I'd like to know the title of the end song that had the lyrics; "you were 18 and called to duty," if anyone can give me that info. I'd give this episode top marks!
Rossi meets up with his old marine sergeant Harrison Scott under bad circumstances when a serial killer is killing homeless people and burning them which puts Harrison in danger along with many homeless people.When Rossi finds he is homeless he tries his best to help him but Harrison doesn't want any help which leads to him nearly becoming another victim when he tries to save a women's life from the killer.Later on we find the killer is killing homeless people because they made him sick and he blames them all and when Harrison helps to identify him the killer targets him.When the team manage to save Harrison Rossi learns a shocking truth about his past which is that in Vietnam a marine called Hernandez let himself die to save him and Harrison.It was a nice way to end it with Rossi and Harrison paying their respects to Hernandez who has not only saved their lives but the many people Rossi has saved from joining the FBI.
A very, very touching storyline which to me was the main story, Flashbacks of Rossi, Private First Class Anthony Hernandez & Sergeant Harrison Scott during the Vietnam War 1969. The original main storyline was good, but the Flashback was better & at the end i did tear up in my eye's. I started school when the Vietnam War was on & when we came home from school thats all they showed on TV. Nothing like today, you have at least 200 Channels to choose from
but not in 1969. Very emotional, not the review i was expecting to give. Nuff Said.
