The tornado in this episode was referred to as an F-2, which is an obsolete classification and was discontinued in 2007. The correct classification should have been EF-2 from the Enhanced Fujita Scale that is currently being used to describe tornadoes.
The book about Baby Star that was being read to Henry by JJ in the final scene was especially created for this episode because no other classic children's books could be cleared due to copyright issues. Virgil Williams wrote the verses himself while thinking of his own children.

During the closed-door Senate hearing, Senator Cramer says to SSA David Rossi, "..., but I'm not the one on trial, Agent."
An U.S. Senate hearing is not a trial, as it is a hearing. A better phrasing might have been, "I'm not the one under investigation (or review)."
The drug used by the unsub, as originally written, was changed to "trilamite" because the network didn't want to advertise the actual drug used to treat seasickness, which is extremely dangerous.
In actuality, if Hotch were to attempt his underwater shooting, his gun would jam after the first shot because the mechanism can't cycle properly when fired underwater.
