  • Weak ending

    8.5
    Liked the episode. the twist with cameras and it was the ending was twist on unsub would have been better!
  • Toe curling episode

    9.0
    Toe curling episode that could have come straight out of a horror movie. The only thing that spoiled the story was the motive. Sibling rivalry. Really? It's like they were desperate for a motive and couldn't think of one that wasn't a cliche, but sometimes a cliche is better than plain desperate.

    6.5
    It was kind of intriguing the case they were dealing with, but I just kept thinking back to the episode of House that told the story from the point of view of the unconscious patient. They did it much better than Criminal Minds too.
  • Creepy

    9.0
    Creepy Anton! What a sick twisted mine one has to have to think of doing lobotomies on people and putting a camera in their eye for everyone see. Glad that guy is going to jail.

    Wonder how long JJ will be able to lie to the team, I hope whatever she and Cruz has together (and it's probably something of a romantic nature) it doesn't ruin her private or work life.

    9.5
    Just when I thought this couldn't get any creepier, the unsub is performing lobotomies on his victims, but with a twist, inserting nanotech camera's in the victims eyes which is the size of a needle. To make matters worse on the first victim Sam Carter which Derek is making some progress with in hospital, the camera starts to broadcast all over the world from Carter's eyes. Which means anyone with a smart phone and ipad and other social media can watch everything unfold and Garcia with all her computer wizardry cant even shut it down. The victim Carter has a very close friend named Dana who was also taken by the unsub and this is where it gets even more twisted, the unsub is her brother Anton Harris and he does the same thing to her. After Anton finishes with his sister,, the camera's also start to go viral all over the world and still Garcia is unable to shut it down. Garcia manages to trace the signal to a warehouse and the team manages to find Dana and eventually Hodge finds Anton and Hodge tells Anton that they shut down the system, so no one is watching but that was a lie, but Anton didn't know that. All to do with sibling rivalry, I don't know if Sam and Dana could possibly get any closure or even get their lives back to some kind of normality. So the new head of the BAU is Mateo Cruz and apparently has some kind of past with JJ, interesting. Thumbs UP CBS.moreless
