* In "The Performer", why did Dante's agent go to the unsub's house, and more important, why did he attack JJ if he had no idea who she was?

* In "Lo-Fi", comparison of video which captured two of the shootings indicates that one killer was significantly shorter than the other, and left the area at a different speed. Based on this information, the BAU presents two possible profiles: either it's a two-person team of serial killers, or it's a gang-initiation ritual. But the killings had been on the news for some time, so a rough description of what the suspect(s) wore during the attacks has presumably become public knowledge. So why was there no mention of a plausible third possibility: that someone who ''specifically'' had a grudge against the second victim heard about the shootings on the news, dressed up like the unsub, and copied his methods to eliminate the person they wanted dead?

** We don't know how long Hotch has been using the same address book. It's possible he wrote down that information when he first moved into the house and hadn't yet memorized its address.

Or the house may have originally been Hayley's home before they were married, and he filled it in when they were still dating.

** Also, it's a statistical fact, apparently, that serial killers have never been known to choose victims outwith their own race. White killers kill white victims, black killers kill black victims...and so on.

** And swiping plates from an out-of-state vehicle when he has the chance is going to impose a bit more of a delay on the investigators' pursuit, as they'll need to request information on the Californian vehicle from another state's DMV. Not much of a stall, but every bit of red tape will buy him more time to put distance between himself and the locale where he swiped the plates.

* Am I the only one who finds the premise of "Beyond Borders" (Both the episode and the upcoming SpinOff) a bit unbelievable. Not the [=UnSub=], but the idea that there's a special FBI team to help Americans in trouble abroad? The US government won't even save people who ''work'' for them; they're going to dispatch a team to save some vacationers?

** I don't know what you mean by your last question, but in real life the FBI [[AluminiumChristmasTrees does investigate]] major crimes against American citizens living abroad, including terrorist attacks, murders, kidnappings and disappearances where foul play is suspected. It also counsels Americans tried in foreign courts, and foreign law enforcement agencies that might ask them for help. The only license of the show is that there is no specific "International Response Team" within the FBI that is exclusively tasked with this.
