* Having the show's seasonal arc be "past unsubs return" right after Shemar Moore's departure makes perfect sense. With a new agent on the team, the characters and writers have an excuse to brief both the newbie and audience members without encyclopedic knowledge of the show's past about the episodes in which the returnees first appeared.

* In "The Perfect Storm", [[spoiler: why does Amber talk to Tony, even though it led to one way she was exposed as the killer? When everyone thought Tony was the dominant partner, Hotch went in with a strategy to feed his ego, say what he wanted to hear about his skill and strength. Now remember how Gideon talked Amber into the interview. "You're the only one who can get through to him." "You're our only hope." He was unwittingly following Hotch's strategy to a T against the REAL dominant partner... And it worked!]]

* In "Blood Relations", Cissy Howard is saying her nightly prayers after many members of her family have been picked off by the unsub. She says she needs the "God of vengeance", to avenge the murders, and not a second later, she hears someone break in and goes after them with her shotgun. Turns out [[spoiler:the vengeful God wasn't there to help Cissy, but to visit his wrath upon her. Specifically, for her incestuous relationship with her brother Malachai that started the whole problem in the first place, as the unsub is their illegitimate child, given away and badly deformed. By the end of the night, Cissy has been dragged through hell, and her and her brother's relationship has been exposed. The ending credits show their families, now joined together, demanding answers for the bloodbath they inadvertently caused. Vengeful God, indeed.]]

* And then there's the episode, "The Performer," which involves a MarilynManson doppelganger promoting a new album called "The Liar". It seems like an odd name for an album at first. Then, you see the scene in which the desperate, drug-addicted rock star's manager promises him that things will get better, hear the rock star say, "Look, you may be the only friend I've got left, but you're a crappy liar," and realize who the album is named after.

** 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.

to:

* 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.
