** Technically Percival does succeed in the end in some stories. He doesn't ask the right question at first, but then he is able to reenter the Fisher King's castle and asks the question that heals the Fisher King.

* We are told Katherine Cole is a former BAU member. When? She's not around or mentioned during the Rossi/Gideon flashbacks of season 10. She's not seen during Rossi's own series of flashbacks in the BAU through the years, and she's not with the BAU in the 2004 flashbacks. When was she ever on the BAU?

** Given the immense amount of referrals the FBI must get from the staggering number of serial murders, it's likely there is more than one team in the BAU. She could have been a BAU member, just not on Hotch's team?

** This is disturbingly TruthInTelevision. Most children who are molested know their perpetrator, and about half those perpetrators are other children.

* When The Reaper goes after Hotch's family, [[spoiler: he shoots Haley and stabs Hotch countless times.]] This is the opposite of how he acts in every other attack - because in every other attack The Reaper's main objective was the woman, but in this case it is Hotch.

** Morgan was part of a bomb squad before joining the BAU (or the FBI). It might be a different FBI unit made only of people with knowledge of explosives.

* The episode "True Night" can be looked at as a {{Deconstruction}} of DarkAge comic books. The unsub, Jonny, a comic book artist, creates a new character, Night, who appears to be a NinetiesAntiHero given his use of deadly force, and all Night's kills are subconsciously based on murders the unsub has been committing in real life. Jonny's manager is shocked by the violence of this art compared to Johnny's previous work. Furthermore, examine what caused Jonny's psychotic break: [[spoiler: his girlfriend getting murdered in front of him by a street gang]]. Yes, she was ''[[spoiler: StuffedIntoTheFridge]]''. His response was to essentially become a Nineties anti-hero himself, hunting down the gang members and killing them, like many a DarkAge "hero". However, this isn't portrayed as "EXTREEEEMEEE", but as a horrifying symptom of major mental illness. The scenes where he kills the victims are beautifully stylized in SinCity-esque fashion, but when you see them realistically afterwards ([[GoryDiscretionShot though you don't see much]]), they're stomach-churning. Jonny is what a Nineties anti-hero would be in real life: seriously disturbed and tragic, not {{badass}}. It's a meditation on how what is "cool" in comics is not very cool in reality. - {{Tropers/Idler}}

* In "P911," the team apprehends a school principle who is a closet pedophile. Everyone's pretty disgusted, naturally, but Morgan has to be told twice by Gideon to calm down or go somewhere else. It's rather subtle, and no one really pays that much attention to it, but only a few episodes later it's revealed that [[spoiler: Morgan was sexually abused in his youth by a man who had a job working with children. His abuser even fits the profile given to the unsub (different from the principle) in "P911": A preferential pedophile, specifically targeting children of a certain age/appearance, and seeking out a job that would give him access to them.]]

* Unless I missed something, "Won't Get Fooled Again" implied that Morgan was the only FBI agent who didn't enter the warehouse in Boston. What, then, happened to Reid and Hotch? They would have been on the team at the time as well.

** Moreover, the three personalities can also be seen as a reference to the Book of Tobit, the volume of Biblical apocrypha that the name Tobias and the archangel Raphael comes from. Those two along with Tobias's father Tobit are the primary characters of the story. To further ShowTheirWork, the whole bit about burning fish guts to drive demons away? Comes from Tobit as well.
