* "Epilogue": The UnSub's [[spoiler: {{Hell}}[=-like=] NearDeathExperience]]. After that, it's understandable he'd invoke IDidWhatIHadToDo in trying to find a better [[spoiler: afterlife]].

* "The Job": the [[spoiler:facial wounds the unsub has from being shot in the jaw are particularly brutal looking. The kicker is the end of the episode where he rips out his own stitches with his thumb, just so he can taunt Morgan, then get him blamed for police brutality.]]

* The unsub in "Drive" uses a guillontine to behead his victims for minor offenses like shoplifting and adultery. Before that, he tortures them by breaking their knuckles with a steel rod until they "confess" their misdeeds. He believes himself to be some kind of [[AGodIAm divine punisher]], and we get to watch two people go through the horrible torture. One of the most brutal episodes of the season.
** The unsub's [[LosingYourHead "wall of shame"]].
* "Hostage" is [[RippedFromtheHeadlines obviously based on the Ariel Castro case]], and includes a lovely look at the cellar prison where the unsub kept three girls for years. It's decked out to look like a little girl's playhouse, but the terror is barely below the surface - barren mattresses covered in blood, bars on the windows, and a [[ColdBloodedTorture x-rack next to a cabinet full of whips and other disgusting paraphernalia to let you think of all the horrible things he was doing to those poor girls.]]

* "The Sandman" opens on the unsub breaking into a family home and blinding the parents (using glue and sand), then going after the child. The wife wakes up after hearing her son screaming for help, realizes she can't see, and tries to wake her husband. Her hand comes away covered in blood. She frantically stumbles to try and help her son, but is quickly killed by the unsub. Then the child is abducted. Later, we see the unsub scooping what appears to be sand into a small bag...only for the camera to pan out and show a small skull burning in an incinerator. And this is all before the cold opening!

* The unsub in "Sick Day" [[spoiler: is an arsonist ''and'' a sadist, meaning he gets off on the pain and suffering of watching people burn alive, specifically ''children''. While Garcia is looking up information about him, she learns he tried to burn down his childhood home with his sister still inside.]]
** [[spoiler: JJ only manages to save two of the three people the unsub had kidnapped for his endgame. A teenage girl is left screaming in terror as nearby barrels of fuel ignite and explode, and JJ is dragging out kicking and fighting Alvez to save the poor girl.]]

** [[spoiler: TheReveal halfway through the episode: the kids disassemble screens as they look for possible escape routes. When Josh finds a window to another room, he only sees one of the unsubs cooking. A few seconds later, the unsub's twin sister appears out of nowhere, breaks through the window attempting to grab one of the kids with her hand.]]

* "Collision Course" runs through unadulterated ParanoiaFuel similar to "A Thousand Suns" two seasons earlier: imagine driving a 2010s-model car then you suddenly lose control of your vehicle after the unsub hacks through it. You can only watch helplessly as he aims your car to the unfortunate pedestrian that just happens to be crossing the road and if you are very unlucky, get killed in the process.
* The unsub in "Alpha Male" spraying ''nitric acid'' on your face just because [[spoiler: you are dating someone. And he planned to do it in a bar full of dating couples, only to be stopped by the BAU at the last minute. It doesn't help that he's directly inspired by [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2014_Isla_Vista_killings Elliot Rodger.]]]]
* In "Assistance is Futile", the unsub tortures his victims by breaking their bones until they die of blood loss due to the fracture wounds. He was so interested in bone fractures that as a child, he just [[SlasherSmile smiled]] when he saw his mother break her arm in such a way that it ripped her skin.
* "In The Dark:" the unsub has a rather extraordinary case of [[spoiler: somnabulism - at night, he aimlessly walks into the places (read: former drug dens and brothels turned suburban homes) his father took him to when he was a child and stabs anyone on sight ''without even realizing'' what he's been doing the whole time. When he's not stabbing people through the heart at night, he shoots hunters who remind him of his father at day.]]
* The unsub in "Hell's Kitchen" [[spoiler: has a medical condition that, essentially, makes him allergic to sunlight. He's under the delusion that, if he drinks the blood of healthy young girls, he can overcome his affliction. While he does invoke pity, the image of him greedily drinking blood from a coffee thermos is chilling.]]
* The unsub's M.O. in "True North" kidnappung smart, successful young people, tying them to poles in the Saguaro Desert, then sitting and watching as they roast alive, [[GreenEyedMonster all because he envies them for cheating him out of a scholarship.]]
** When the unsub's shrewish mother [[spoiler: is dying of a stroke, he gets the woman he holds most responsible for him losing the scholarship to confess to "cheating" him and ruining his life. Then the unsub put his mother's feet in a bucket of water, turns on a nearby electric fan, and drops it in. We watch as his mother is visibly electrocuted, flailing around wildly, while the poor victim screams in abject horror.]]

** The [UnSub=]'s hallucinations are profoundly creepy. He sees his first victim ''everywhere'' even over old ladies at a restaurant by the end and over ''his own mother'' at one point. But worse is that [[spoiler: the hallucination often takes the form of his ''conscience'' reminding him that his first victim did love him once, but ''he's'' the reason the relationship went south by going {{Yandere}} on her]], and how she sporadically teleports from across the room to right in front of him during their "conversations".

** Foyet was naked and grinding against Hotch from behind. That wasn't scripted LIKE a rape scene, [[WordOfGod Word Of God]] says it WAS a rape scene. Foyet even taunted Hotch about violating him while he was helpless to fight back.

Added DiffLines:

*** As a Vancouverite retired sex worker who lost my best friend to that damned farm I promise you this episode is barely a hint of how nightmarish the Pickton case truly is. First, the killings went on as long as they did because for nearly two and a half decades the Vancouver RCMP didn't care about all the missing sex workers and didn't even investigate until public outcry forced them to. Then the man tried and convicted is believed by many people to not even BE the killer, as he is mentally stunted and very childlike and seemed thoughout his trial to barely understand what was happening while his highly intelligent older brother who is known to be close friends with several longtime local police officers was never even questioned even though he OWNS the pig farm, was known to have a taste for hiring sex workers, and is noted by observers to display all the traits of a high functioning sociopath. So a LOT of us here in Vancouver think the real killer is still free and our police helped him be so. And sex workers are STILL going missing. Have fun sleeping tonight.
