** Also from that episode, a slightly odd retroactive example: Reid mentions that he remembers his father's favorite writer is Isaac Asimov. In the previous season, he got excited about having the Foundation Trilogy on tape. It's almost sweet that Reid has something in common with his father, without even realizing it.

* 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.

** Also, the end shows the community returning to the various location where the [=UnSub=] killed and resuming activities there (attending church, the laundromat is open). The [=UnSUb=] tried to destroy important parts of the community, and the community healed.

* "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.

* ** 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.
