* In "Ashes and Dust", Hotch lies to a victim, who is on the brink of death with severe burns, about the status on her husband and son. He tells the woman that they both survived the fire set by the UnSub and are waiting for her in the waiting room so she can pass on more peacefully.

* "Cradle to Grave" has two despite being a rather nightmare fuel inducing episode. First the woman who had just given birth gets her baby back. Back at headquarters JJ has been trying to see if she can get an older couple(the parents of one of the unsub's victims)custody of the their granddaughter. The adoptive parents refuse but say they would like for the grandparents to be in the girl's life. They agree to this and then find out that their daughter had given birth once before while in captivity,to a little boy and since they are his next of kin they get custody of him.

* "Roadkill" has JJ letting the man who believed himself to have caused the Unsub's car accident know that the accident he actually caused resulted in damage to the other car, but there were no injuries.

* From "Coda," Reid and Sammy, the autistic child of the unsub's victims, playing the piano together after Reid figures out how to communicate with him through music. Just a nice, sweet, quiet little moment amidst the usual urgency of a case.

* The ending of "Into The Woods". Despite this being one of the creepier episodes,the scene of the both the children reunited with their parents as Rossi looks on and remarks that even though the unsub got away this is still a happy ending just gives me the warm fuzzies every time I see it.

Added DiffLines:

* Also from "Minimum Loss". The entire episode, the team is clearly worried about Prentiss and Reid being held hostage and broke protocols to ensure both of them got out. When the episode ends, we get a shot of Hotch looking at Reid and Prentiss before saying "We got the kids out okay." Considering his interactions with his team bordering on paternal, it's so sweet.

to:

* The happy endings. Criminal Minds is an incredibly dark and occasionally horrific show, but many episodes are able to have an ending where the latest victim (or sometimes victims) is saved and reunited with their love ones. Ultimately, there is a consistently optimistic note that good will ultimately be able to triumph over evil.

* Kevin and Penelope meeting for the first time.

* ** Earlier in the same episode, Hotch declaring that he doesn't care about protocol and that the team will not work another case until they catch the man who shot Garcia.

* While "Nelson's Sparrow" is otherwise a very sad episode due to [[spoiler: Gideon's death]], we get to see Gideon and Rossi's friendship as they worked together back in the day. When Rossi deduces that Gideon is about to become a father, he asks Rossi for his middle name: Stephen. When Rossi greets Gideon's son by name, we see that he named him Stephen, which implies that Gideon named his son after Rossi.

** In that same episode, one of the subplots centers around Reid and his nightmares. He tells Morgan about them at the beginning of the episode, and out of concern for Reid, he tells Hotch and Gideon. Later on when Reid calls him out for doing that, Morgan tells Reid that he has nightmares of his own due to an early case of his. Reid asks Morgan how he dealt with them, and he says that Gideon was able to tell what was wrong with him (Morgan didn't want anybody knowing) and talked him through them. The conversation ends with Morgan saying that while he still has nightmares, they're not nearly as often. At the end of the episode, Gideon tells Reid that the whole team has nightmares, implying that he's helped them as well.

* It's a small thing, but in "LDSK", when the shots ring out in the park, it's sort of sweet that Gideon's first reaction is to push JJ down and shield her with his own body.

* At the end of "Blood Hungry", Hotch encourages Gideon to reach out to his son, whom Gideon says doesn't want to hear from him. It's very sweet hearing how nervous but happy Gideon sounds as he talks to his son, and the episode ends with the two of them talking to each other after making plans to get together.



** Also, Gideon holding Elle's hand in the hospital after she comes out of surgery. He's spent the entire episode both working the case with the rest of team and staying in the hospital out of worry for her, and he wanted to be there for her when she woke up.



* It's small, but in "Aftermath", Gideon showing his care and concern for Elle as she goes undercover to catch a serial rapist.
--> '''Hotch''': Do you think Elle's ready for it?
--> '''Gideon''': We'll be there for her.
** While she's panicking during the operation, Gideon, who is wired to her, gently tries calming her down:
--> '''Gideon''': Easy, baby.



** The ending of the episode qualifies too, from the last minute rescue to the team having fun together watching a Chaplin's movie.

Added DiffLines:

** In the same episode, Rossi sitting in with Reid during the hypnosis to make sure everything went okay. When Reid starts panicking, Rossi starts off angrily demanding the hypnotist to wake him up and once Reid does wake up, Rossi immediately starts calming him down and reassuring him that he's okay.


Added DiffLines:

** In the beginning of the episode, Hotch's concern for an in-shock Emily is very sweet. At first, he offers her time off to grieve, and then when she asks for leeway to investigate the killing, he doesn't even hesitate to offer his and the team's help.
