** What really drives it home is when Hotch, calls Morgan, to let him know what happened; though the conversation is muted, Morgan is visibly shaken.

** Oh God...The unsub's collection of teeth...
* "The Storm" is basically several instances of nightmare fuel stacked on top of each other:
** A SWAT team busting into Hotch's home and arresting him in front of his son, JJ, and Henry. Worst part? [[spoiler:he's being framed and flagged as a potential terrorist threat by someone he put away in a maximum security prison. The prisoner, Eric Rawdon, is so charismatic and manipulative, he managed to get almost an entire prison and a malleable man on
the teeth.outside to help him target this one man, and stage a prison escape.]]
** [[spoiler:The massive prison break orchestrated by a MadBomber who's only interested in causing wide-spread, large-scale destruction. Imagine you're a prison guard, just doing your rounds before clocking out. Then, one of the cell doors open. Then ''they all start to open''.]]

* "The Witness" involves a mass poisoning on a city bus. The diffuser that released the gas was there for at least a week, and no one noticed it until it was too late.
** A man boarding the bus after it crashes at a stop, only to find everyone on board dead, foaming at the mouth from the aforementioned poison. Chilling stuff.

* "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 episode "Badge and Gun", has the [=UnSub=] of the week posing as a FBI agent to get himself into women's home and suffocate them to death, playing on their fear of a earlier unrelated murder or sexual assault against a woman that happened in the area (which he takes advantage of) and their wish to be safe and wanting to catch the criminal. Regardless how people actually about FBI, in the end it is expected that the FBI agents to help the people and seeing some [=UnSub=] using them as a tool of murder to earn a unsuspecting victim's trust is plain scary.

* "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 mattress 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.]]

* During the episode "Awake," the [=UnSub=] told authorities that a man with a skull tattoo was there moments before his daughter was kidnapped and eventually murdered. The BAU thought that he might have been hallucinating or his mind playing tricks on him as he was severely sleep deprived at the time and he might have just imagining the guy. What is scary though at the end of the episode it shows that guy is real and he is targeting another girl on the other side of the country and the BAU doesn't know about it (yet but who knows how long till someone connects the dots)

* 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.
